Proposed Canon

A stack is a group of units that fight together and share bonuses. To be stacked together, all units must be from the same side or its allies. A hex may contain multiple stacks.Erf-b1-p049Same-site.PNG

Groups of units get a stack bonus that maxes at eight. This makes eight-man formations fairly common. Any special bonuses apply to the entire stack.

Stacks without a leader are forced to auto-attack when in contact with units from non-allied capitals. With a Commander the fight can be directed, or the group can choose not to initiate a fight.Erf-b1-p040aSame-site.PNG

Speculation

Hexes seem to have a maximum number of units or stacks that can exist within them. Columns seem to form because there are too many units to fit within a single Hex.

The three-hex Column that retook Warchalking for Gobwin Knob contained twelve stacks, so the limit may be four or five allied stacks per hex.

It could also be that it was simply more efficient for the stacks to be separated, as their move stat was so different that, rather than slow down the fastest units to have them all arrive at the same time.
