I've been playing and enjoying RoK for a couple of weeks now, and there's a game mechanic that I'm not entirely sure that I understand, and so far I haven't been able to find clarification anywhere.
Here's the cause of my confusion:
After reviewing some battle-logs from a couple of barbarian fortress rallies, it seems like only the commanders belonging to whoever is leading any particular rally are the ones who use their active or passive skills. Now, I may be wrong about that, but if I'm correct, I don't understand why the members in my alliance use two commanders when they join a rally instead of using just one commander to bring troops since apparently their commanders won't be using their abilities anyway.
So, here are my two questions:
1. Does every commander in a rally use abilities, or is it just the two commanders belonging to whoever is leading the rally?
2. If only the two commanders leading the rally use abilities, why does everyone in my alliance join rallies with two commanders and not just one?
Thank you in advance for any help
