Default 25% autoroute question

So if in a battle only 25% of my troops are left my army routes.
Is that always determined from the initial count of units?
Or would a mage casting swarm the first battle-turn route after 75% of the swarm is dead?

Tested it myself, summoned units don't count.
Sorry for a stupid question I could answer myself.

Actually, the limit is 25% of hitpoints left. Not units. You could theoretically autorout without having lost a single unit. Theoretically.

However the HP limit is the amount of HP your units had at the beginning of the battle so as long as you keep summoning soulless or other chaff you can lose almost all of your forces without autorouting. You just need to replace the HP you lose.

Note, this trick dont work with units that was summoned with the turn-0 one-battle-spell command items. Like the wraith crown or bottles of living water.

Not actually theoretical. Take a dragon pretender into combat by himself in dragon form. Give him change shape as his first order. Watch him auto-route. This actually does impact what you can do with Dragon pretenders.

Plus, this happens all the time with SCs in general. Most of the time, it is pretty welcome - though the autoroute is obnoxious when it affects anyone who has Phoenix Pyre up, or automatically shifts form upon death.

It's "rout" not "route" in any language. I saw the thread Title and couldn't understand how you were building roads in Dom...

Sorry, for that mistake.
In my language its neither route nor rout.

An autoroute function would be great by the way.

So sorry, I wondered about that possibility after I posted. Didn't mean to be rude, your English is great. But between America & England there's often misspelling on that word. Your title just struck me as amusing

[Edit: Actually it's just as much the pronunciation of "rout"/"route" ]

I'll just take it as a compliment that the idea of me not being a native speaker didn't even come to your mind.

No, but perhaps I should have noticed your name, "Olm" doesn't sound very English. Sounds more like Vanheim/Helheim to me....
