the problem here is that the behaviour ruins a decent fight against the "AI" and suspension of disbelief is cancelled at that point when the enemy are gladly rushing towards you. And you can't issue orders to the "ai"
I spotted the bug within 30 minutes of playing the patch release back in the day (and reported with saves etc)
The only official Battlefront employees posting here have been happy to spend plenty of time espousing their beliefs regarding current military/political conflagrations or posting AARs about future modules requiring undying devotion to purchase; but FFS it's about time they started talking about what the dev is doing ( as he won't post here) on what he has done regarding a game breaking issue - I have spent fricking HUNDREDS of frickin dollars on investing in a system I expected would give me a fair fight (let alone time spent). And before the apologists butt in, I am specifically talking CMBN; although the behaviour can be observed in other modules.
Rant not nearly over.
TL;DR: talk to your customers (repeatedly) about their pain points or expect less income. Or - declare that the residential support is useful but not as useful as the military dollar.
Man. This is like Cleese hating the Commies (and then told it's time for tea).
