Just a question: will we do another review of the Optional rules for ver 4.04 soon or are the OR recommendations complete here for the newest versions?

4.04 didn't add any new OR so recommendations are up-to-date.

I tend to follow the OR that Rich Hamilton (WDS) recommended to me.

Seems most folks follow these OR.

Movement threat disorder pretty much destroys any ability to make an attack.

My experience is they fall apart the minute you try and advance.

I think the probability got turned down with a recent patch, but problem is still that it works with range and not with LOS.
So any obstacle that covers a threat or keeps it from reaching you can still cause a disorder with this rule, and that doesn't make much sense to me.
But if that gets changed maybe the rule could be considered.

It was always too sensitive for me.

I had an entire cavalry regiment disorder before a couple of infantry columns that they would have slaughtered.

That was it for me.

I like the general idea of it.

Another thing I wish could be addressed-

When a brigade has suffered over 50% casualties they should basically lose their ability to attack.
There has to be some mechanism where you can't just keep throwing troops into combat who have basically been decimated.
