add a Deployment phase
Its pretty annoying when I'm playing a Vanguard and I get assigned to the back of the party line! Or when our squishy Runecast gets assigned to the front. There should be a quick deployment phase where each map has four starting squares players can pick from.

a quick deployment phase? do you mean like in Heroes of Might and Magic 3? cause that could help. but to do something new, in my opinion would be to set players in random places in that specific start area, instead of the already set spots. not only that but if you wanted at this point in my random set up to place your characters in specific places in this start phase, I think it should be unlocked and then given to the players on a . . what would be more important, for me, the start phase set up, or a add +1 to first movement bonus haha, cause to be honest to move 2 in the beginning like in chess would be cool too.
You can already re-arrange your party formation! Check the left side bar :) then you'll have to re-start the challenge I believe.

I'd agree except for combats which are a "surprise" or we're caught off guard.
