In the "Age of Wonders 2", participated in the battle the troops are in neighboring cells with the place of battle. If the neighboring cell was a Federal detachment magician, he participated in the battle with the main forces of the two sides. Thus, I often participated in the battle on three sides. For example simply left in its ally designed unit that would be an attack on the town to support union player's magic in the tactical battle. In "Elemental: War of Magic" I understand this is not?
