Morale issues in the current patch?
A friend and I tried playing the multiplayer campaign mode fairly soon after release, back when the desyncs were rampant and the AI was pretty inneffectual. We've tried to get back into it this weekend (seemingly after Patch 9) and are having major issues with morale. It seems like our troop morale is practically breaking immediately, despite being in otherwise even situations with the enemy units. There have been times where our side even has superior numbers in a conflict, inside of our fort, and our units will rapidly lose morale and then flee despite taking relatively minimal actual losses.

Is this a bug? Difficulty levels don't seem to factor in to this behavior, and it seems awfully game-breaking.

Yes, human player's morale is definitely nerfed and the AI's is a bit buffed. I've checked this by directly reversing battles and have seen quite ludicrous effects.

The best ones are where you use the big slope maps, one side is at the top, with superior forces and loads of arty - play one of those both ways around and you will see hilarious results in terms of units routing.

Yeah that certainly seems to be the case. On the plus side, the Radious Total War mod seems to address the issue (or at least the Battle Mod portion thereof).

ive noticed this in custom battles too....even my skirmishers in skirmish mode would start kiting back and then break for no reason

I bought this game last 2 weeks and I am already starting to hate this game. I experienced this so many times and experienced it just now.. Units running and making me lose the battle when me and the AI were equal. Also having problem with enemy AI that won't advance and just waiting for me to attack when it should be the one attacking because I'm defending and my formation is for defending.
