Waypoints need to be added, as there have been countless times where my units have run into ambushes when I'm not looking at where they are going. You can't be expected to watch over your units as they move from A to B.

The control scheme (PS3) could essentially be something along the lines of holding down R1 or L1 (I don't think those buttons are used for anything) and pressing X to set different waypoints.

For when Playstation Move is used, it would have to be L1 on the Navigation controller, as R1 is not present when using the Move controller.

Sign this petition if you agree this should be implemented in an upcoming update.

I think it's a great idea, but think the game's still pretty damn good without 'em. But if Eugen have the resources to add 'em in, would deffo like to see it happen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But it really can't be that hard to implement, and it wouldn't take up too much resources.

I agree, you should also take a look at this. (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/7471016188/m/4841091388)

Totaly agree about the waypoints but L1 and R1 are already used to chose betwen individual type of units from your selected army (without need to zoom in) and it is quite useful in the heat of the battle whe your units are stacked together. Instead i would propose as folows

X pressed quickly - as it is now
X pressed long - set a waipoint

I agree waypoints especially for aircraft as you have to change there flight path mid flight and if you miss the window the parartroopers drop at the first point u selected not were you wanted them to land. Also agree with unlimited time being added its in pc version so why not console. even if unlimited time is offline only as 1hour limit seems sensible for an online match.

definitely need wp's for paratroopers. If you try to redirect them around the map they accidentally drop off the troopers.
