Siptah, single player, testlive.
I’ve had several purges on testlive now. I have a curtain wall with some archers on top, and all the hostile melee units do, is stand at the base of the wall and stare intently up at the archers while getting shot in the face. I have seen videos of purges, and having some archers around should not normally prevent structures from getting wrecked? I’m not sure if this is a bug or just me complaining. Its pretty underwhelming though.
How to reproduce:
- Build base with walls, archers.
- Spawn purge, like rocknoses or accursed.
Observed: Melee units target archers out of reach, and stand around like idiots.
Expected: Melee units target something that they can reach, like the structure right in front of them.

In this video, melee units go for structures right away when they have no other reachable target.
