    See attached savegame. My caravel has enough XP to be promoted, and the End Turn button has been replaced with PROMOTE A UNIT, but I don't actually have to.

    If I bombard Nanjing (using up the Caravel's turn), then I'm allowed to end-turn. So I can save up that healing promotion indefinitely. (In contrast, if I simply move the Caravel, I am forced to use the promotion)

    This doesn't appear to happen with my melee units.

    Is this intended design?

    Also works for Cannons if you bombard before promoting.

    I've done the same with melee units as well - warriors specifically I think. Moved the warrior, or attacked with it, rather than taking a promotion (admittedly, he then died because I could use the promo *after* attacking, but the point still remains)

    I hear in multiplayer, assuming it isn't exaggeration, that a unit literally cannot move until he's promoted. Perhaps this would be a good idea for single player as well

    Bug confirmed in the save file. Bombarding Nanjing allows you to save the promotion (works the same next turn, too).
