How did your wagon become disordered in the first place? I tried in a test scenario to disorder a wagon by moving into Abatis terrain... didn't disorder.

In that test scenario I also had about 8 DISORDERED wagons. None of them undisordered. I remember discussing this with John Tiller years ago. Not sure how a wagon could rout OR disorder. Would be interested to hear your account as to how it happened in your game.

I have never seen a wagon disorder due to a routed unit test. They are captured if an attack captures their position ....

Enlighten us ;)

You might send a game file to Rich at the Support email to hear what John has to say about it.

Ah well. Waterloo. Supply wagons can rout now if they get too near the action. That goes for all games with the Movement Threat Disorder. Most stay routed but one managed to get to disordered state and stayed there. But mainly the Waterloo-Wavre scenario where they begin in a disordered state and seem to want to remain in that state.

Wouldn't mind at all that also supply wagons are routed or disorder, but if there is no mechanic that they recover again it would be another lack in the mechanic of the new OR if not to say a bug.
