patrolled rams attack buildings, not units.
sometimes they get into a 'bug mode' cycle where they reach a building, then gb, and repeat... when that happens, select them, hit stop, and repatrol or target on your own

Just a Q, it says left click in first line of the article, u can also patrol with right click, is there a difference?

Oh and patrol with rams? Only thing I do is switch to aggressive stance, hate their stupid default defensive.

Patrol with rams rox, just patrol from one side of enemy base to the other, if you dont the rams will stop attacking when the next enemy building is more then like 2 tiles away, bit annoying. Sometimes they get bugged tho, and start robot dancing in front of an enemy building, looks ridiculous. Bit annoying you cant patrol them anymore if you fill them with units :S

oh that was why, I was trying it and it wouldn't work, had some units in to make them faster, no wonder, aggressive worked fine.

Hm very interesting article.
I am a little bit surprise how much attention you pay to patrol but you are experiance player and u probabably know very well why a what are u writing about....
I am mostly arena player,but maybe I should think more about use patrol there....thx for hints ;)

Thank you Geen, amazing rec! Finally I fully understood what "patrolling" mean plus its advantages!

Anyway, you can't use it always. For example, strong AIs like AllianceThundaEmpire or Diablo send a lot of sparse units toward you, no 20-30-40 units compact armies, and patrolling has no power against sparse units :)
