Priority Deployment  

In battle, each Army Unit has its Priority Deployment, that determines its position on the battlefield. The possible deployments include the Frontline, the Archery Line, and the Artillery Line. The Frontline priority can further broken down by Division: Flank or Center.
When combat begins, your chosen Formation will accommodate as much as possible the priorities of each unit. While the Battle Lines have no limits for their respective composing units, the Flanks and Centers do, which means that a unit will be positioned at its Priority Deployment only if there is available space there. If the priority Flanks or Center have already been occupied by other units, the remaining units which Priority Deployment can't be accommodated will be relegated to the other available Division of the Frontline.

Example: You enter battle with an army of 60% Spearmen and 40% Swordsmen, in a Balanced Formation. The Spearmen have Flanks as their Priority Deployment; the Balanced Formation, however, puts only 30% of your troops in the Flanks (15% in each Flank). Therefore, both of your Flank will be entirely constituted of Spearmen, but the remaining 30% Spearmen will be relegated to the Center, where they fight with penalties.

You should always attempt to fight in Formation which accommodates the Priority Deployment of all of your troops!
All Melee units have their Priority Deployment on the Frontline.
All Swordsmen units have their Priority Deployment on the Frontline Center.
All Cavalry units have their Priority Deployment on the Frontline Flanks.
Light and Heavy Spearmen have their Priority Deployment on the Flanks; Phalanx have their Priority Deployment on the Frontline Center.
All Archer units have their Priority Deployment on the Archery Line.
All Siege Engines, except the Battering Ram, have their Priority Deployment on the Artillery Line.
