If the number of members falls below the minimum amount, the formation breaks. :)

Do the people split in combat or do they keep their formation when fighting? I always wished there would be a create a formation type where you would turn a bunch of men into a Total War Style formation which fights against others.. Dreams... but not actually needed. Would still be cool though.

Hopefully we'll be able to implement fighting in formation, for now they split up though.
