Good for you, it happened today to 2 people, one ranked 7th in the leagues and probably one of the best individual players in the game, and me, who has lost maybe 10 ranked games legitimately since first playing ranked (about 90 games). I think we can both safely say that normally it's not an issue of us taking care of our commands.
His was completely surrounded at Ivan, mine was set on the run by needing to relocate in the first place. Both did so with supporting units, both were forced out of position and then panicked, where they both proceded to sit still for over 60 seconds and get themselves killed because we couldn't do anything about it. Mine lost me the game because of previous poor decisions, although I was only 10 points away from winning by nearly 300.

IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE. It's not realistic and it doesn't promote good game play.
Route mechanics in general need to be fixed. It makes no sense that a "routed" unit would deliberately flee into enemy territory or put itself into a suicidal situation when there's perfectly good defensive perimeters to fall back to. Nor does it make any sense why it would just sit there for a minute while some weak unit slowly whittles down its health over a full minute.
As what theword says, i 2 have never had an issue with my command routing. And making statements how high u are in the ranking doesnt mean your argument is any stronger.. U made a poor decision so u lost your command. Next time be prepared or move from arty..
