Military units
So I've been playing awhile and have a few questions about the military units in the game.

1) Is there a point to using ranged units? Maybe it's just me, but I'm not seeing much of a benefit so far versus a bunch of berserker/slayers.

2) what defines aggro? In other words, what makes monsters hit which unit. Because it seems like a lot of times the monster will just go after the first thing it sees or first thing it gets hit by. Do shield bearers get any kind of bonus? They're supposed to be tanks.....

I've noticed that ranged units sometimes get stuck or have trouble getting the right distance or line of sight on an enemy, especially if the enemy is constantly moving toward a target of some sort. Most of the time, my melee guys will get to the enemy before my ranged guys can get their stuff together. Nevertheless, I'll still use them. I do about 2/3 of my army melee and 1/3 ranged.
