We need a possibility to inform the player about the stances a thrall is set to. This is why:
There are three tactics behaviours:
Stand and defend
There are 4 options to chose from engagement behaviours:
Attack all enemies
And 2 options where you select distances:
So mathematically you can set at least 12 combinations from the tactical and engagement behaviours, and you have 5 options from each distance setting. So in the end, there are 12 x 5 x 2 =
120 different combinations available.
If you take into consideration that a clan can have 100 (atm even more) thralls and of course several players, it is obviously impossible to keep track of the stances guarding thralls are set to.
ATM people are a little confused about what the best settings are for the different base defence tasks. For trying out and applying the best options, it is essential to know what the thrall in question is set to. How are we even supposed to do any testing without having these options displayed?
Different suggestions have already been made on the forum about this. One solution would be to highlight the selected option in the relevant menu, A more sophisticated alternative beeing a display in the followers tab or an expansion of the status / health display.
BTW - great update nonetheless (giving 120 option to chose is indeed a big deal without all irony)!!
