It was there on release day and is there to this day. Guess you didn’t play it much! :)
Edit: “orders” meaning destination, at least, as well as the ability to execute those orders, selecting each unit you wish in whatever order you desire. Completely missing from Afghanistan '11. And completely necessary in a game about logistics. Refund in process. Strongly recommend against purchasing at this time – no one will be able to tolerate playing through the campaign with the game in its current state. (A literally accurate statement at this time, based on Steam achievement percentages…)
Edit 2: Forget “playing through the campaign” – zero percent of players on Steam have completed “Operation Achilles,” the fifth campaign mission. Or five skirmish missions.
