Looking at the screens I'd say unit stacking is gone. I could argue that it was a good change for Civ but not for AoW, since combat in aow takes place in a separate field, in a non-stacked manner.

Looking at the shots, the whole map seems cluttered with units and if truly is no stacking than moving big armies will be a chore like none other.

I would be suprised if there isn't unit stacking. The screenshots could either be from "late" game where the various stacks are full (in past games you would get to the point where you have many many stacks of 8) or they seperated them to give us more to look at this in the intial screenshots.

Don't be too sure. Look at the numbers on the flags in the 'world-view'. On most of the screens its '1', but look here, for example.

Units do stack (up to 6 unit per stack). The Adjacent Hexagon rule even still exists

Only 6 per stack. But I see a lot of units in the battlefield. Maybe 1 stands for a formation or a legion?

You are right it does appear they stack up to 6, but I don't know, maybe the zoom is too far in and things look out of proportion (In aow/aow2 a default camera would have a much bigger view of the map than the screenshots we have here).

Yes, on the battlefield screenshots it's clearly visible that a unit can represent an entire squad of soldiers. I think it's a good idea, it brings back the MoM memories...

Arnout, nice to see you and the other boys in blue again!

Question-why 6, and not 8?

Take an old, dirty, hungry, mangy, sick and wet dog and feed him and wash him and nurse him back to health, and he will never turn on you and bite you.

This is how man and dog differ.

It would be cool, if we can see the troops in a stack on the global map. It needs smaller unit-models "only".
