It will hide behind the troops again
I honestly don’t see the problem. If the defensive waves are well done they are suppose to flood the screen with troops. A little bit of confusion is the least I expect. We are playing war after all.
When that happens just scream back, reassemble you army and then charge farward again.
Exactly right @Artaq!
But, bar filled in approx every 10 secs , and in fight of (let) 2:30 min = 15 times approx
So in that 15 times we only need/importance to see that bar 7-8 times only, other half can be neglected
