Hey guys, quick question here. When playing DoW & WA, you can get your unit icons to flash (I think you right click on them) and they glow white but don't actually do anything... Is there a purpose for this, or THQ decide they want to make it look pretty?

I think your talkin about 'overwatch' when you right click on a build option it will flash, this makes this option continue to happen untill it cannot be done anymore then it cancels itself, eg. with a scout sqad of 2 if you right click on the new squad member icon, it will start makin a new squad member then after he's complete it will make another, after he's complete the squad is full so the overwatch command stops, It might not seem like its doing anything cos it wont start makin the new member till youve enough resources. Its a killer on resources but if you've plenty its a great way to keep your squads upgrading in battle. Sorry if this isn't what you mean, and i've just said the blatantly obvious i'm newish to the forums

Aye, that is probably it. I've just never used it, nor knew what it was for, only that it existed ;) Anyway, thankyou all for the replies. :) :lock:
