Upgraded and trying to play Salamanca. Playing movement threat.

Fine until the night turns.

My army started to rout EVERYWHERE. Even units nowhere near the enemy.

Half my army routed. IT's like the movement threat went totally insane.

Further, when my units routed, the engine wouldn't allow me to move them.

I had to click on and off the units several times. Basically moving the units one hex at a time, then reclicking on them, then moving again.

This is a serious glitch.

It makes the game unplayable.

I don't know if the British are having these problems or not. They seem to be fine.

I think you can check the threat value of a hex, did they somehow skyrocket?
If not the day/night change obviously have triggered something unwanted.
I can only advise to see if you can consistently repeat that error, and if so please inform the WDS support.

I've always thought the threat level was set too high. But this is off the charts.

It's a great rule potentially, but they have to adjust the values.

On the other hand, there were battles in the Peninsula where historically the French army did collapse like this.

But it makes it impossible to play and it's certainly no fun for the French commander.

There is literally nothing I can do but run away as quickly as I can and hope I quit routing.

and I am routing everywhere with no enemy units near me. I outnumbered the enemy at the limited point of contact.

which I didn't initiate.

Yea makes not sense at all, you really should report this.

The Allies had some similar instances but not to the scale it impacted Les Bleus

Only triggered by night fall, where they afraid of the dark?

My plan seemed so good when I started this battle.

Then I got bogged down in places where I shouldn't have

I always start every battle with a foolproof plan, but then as Mike Tyson said, everyone has a plan until you get punched in the mouth. And you punch hard my friend!

I probably should be retreating back where I came from now, but even that isn't a good option.

I've had a couple of battles where the wheels just fell off my army, and it's not easy to deal with.
