Hamlet tracking useless - I think a bug.

I read somewhere (maybe not official) that you could monitor your hamlets to avoid being wiped out (recall before attacks hit).  I am trying to complete hold x hamlet for 60 minutes.  I get tired of loosing units to giants so I monitored the hamlet, sitting on tracking screen refreshing just to make sure the game wasn't lagging, etc.  All of a sudden, without warning, I loose all my units yet again.  Nothing on tracking, and I had just refreshed tracking screen 5 seconds before loosing them.  And I, thought, maybe it was just someone real close or using something to speed troops, so I tried again.  And a different Giant horde of troops cleared me out again.


When I say refreshing I mean, every minute I was closing the hamlet screen clicking on the screen and then going to tracking.  I wasted 100s of troops, hours of resources, hours of build time,  and over an hour of my life watching one hamlet without doing anything else, just to try and avoid useless losses.

Plarium is thinking of adding such a feature but it has not been added to stormfall yet..  tbh those quests are pretty much useless anyway they are hardly ever worth the loss.

A screen shot is useless here.  What screen shot would i send.  


Basically, I was monitoring tracking at the hamlet and nothing was on tracking.  However, I got hit with a large raid killing all my forces.

Lord Embrybills

if you are refering to track troops what are going to attack your hamlet i have to say that actually you cant track incoming attacks to hamlets or setts

at least if that feature exist i dont know how to use it

hope this can help you

That tab is just for ONLY YOUR units moving to and from the hamlet i believe.. but i dont capture hamlets its hardly ever worth the loss

Once you own a hamlet, go to the map coordinate and click on the hamlet.  There on the first tab you can send reinforcements or collect early.  There is another tab called tracking, this is where I would expect to see any troops heading my way.  Seeing my one troop that is returning after the capture while the others stay to collect is utterly useless, so I would think this tab is to track attacks.  I even read somewhere, but can not find where now, that if you were afraid of loosing your troops, you could babysit the hamlet to recall early in case of attack.
