Re: Leader and Uncontrolled firing

I'm not saying that there should be any kind of enforced priority to the allocation, just that if there are flags available the player should *have* to allocate them to units and if a unit is engaged in uncontrolled behaviour they will automatically carry on with it...

Doesn't my handle give that away? ;^D
