Ever shot at a fleeing villager with HA's, seen the villie run out of sight as you shot at him, then run after him only to find him dead already? Your arrows reached him in the fog!
I'm sure I'm not the first one to notice this: the Ballistics bug. This can happen when you fire at a unit that is running away, if you have researched Ballistics. If the target is within range, the firing unit (archer, siege, whatever has range) will aim at the spot where the target is running to, even if that spot is out of range.
I don't know if anyone has ever made a dishonest use of this bug, but here's how it might go: Suppose you and your ally have no decent siege weapons, only some unupgraded stone throwers, and are trying to break through some Choson towers. Tell your STs to stand ground. Switch to Neutral with your ally. Ally runs some Cavalry towards enemy towers. You fire at Cavalry right as they exit the STs line of sight; ally retreats Cavalry; STs stand ground; priest heals Cavalry. Repeat. Voilą, your measly STs now outrange Choson towers! With a little practice, you'll learn to aim right at those towers. Probably a little too complicated to pull off in the heat of battle, but against a turtled-in opponent... Any thoughts?
