Hiring mercenaries during battle
« on: May 13, 2016, 07:19:10 PM »
Was interesting to find out that even though battle prep is taking place you can still hire mercenaries.  When you hire them, a timer comes up saying how long the hiring will take.  That time puts it outside the battle timer.

So the battle should take place prior to the finishing of hiring.  BUT they already show up as being involved in the up coming battle.

Is the mercenary timer not fully implemented?  I had assumed they would not be involved with the first fight, yet I wanted them under my banners before the enemy could get to them... so that I could start a second fight to run them off.

Would like to know the intent of game so we know if it is bad form in the future.

Timer is implemented, but you get mercenaries immediately. The timer is actually a kind of "you cannot hire other mercenaries while this timer is running" thing.

Mercenaries seems to be very rarely available for long time already.  :o
