    Good question. I hover my mouse over my troops and try to match them up as well as poss., so I do sort of put them in order.
    Not sure if it matters but I would think it does, soooo...I do :D

    From Mykans Guide- Fighting Guide. It's often good to scout out what the terrain looks like with an Archer or better yet, Ranger before you select which troops go where. Above is a great example. If you auto fought with that, your Light Melee units would be completely vulnerable to long range attacks and your Archers very vulnerable to Cerebrus or Drone Riders. So your best bet is to go in with a Ranger, surrender, then come back with the smartest set up. But if you're doing a tourny situation where you have lots of encounters in one day, you're usually safe(ish) if you just do the best troops you can.

    Checking out the Fighting Guide, though. It will give you MUCH more detailed advice.

    It matters, but remember that auto-fight AI is terrible. I generally only auto-fight with 5x of the same unit type. This is because you might set up a light ranged opposite a mage, and a heavy range opposite a light melee. But the AI often targets the enemy with the highest initiative in range, so that light ranged might run across the map to hit the light melee even though A. they will do less damage and B. they just brought themselves into counter-attack range from the light melee.

    I like to hit "Fight" and then when in the fight hit "Auto Fight" and watch the action and get an Idea what to do, and what not to do. But that's just me. :D

    strategy is my game. I like chess, stratego, and checkers. To learn to fight, and maybe I win with minimal losses, My time is well spent. I do negotiate a lot though. :) But when I can fight, lose one guy and win, then my resources aren't lost.
