Chase down an enemy? Let the enemy flee?
At the moment, letting an enemy flee is by far the best option. It is never worth it to chase down an enemy and kill them. When you let an enemy flee you get a chance to recruit them. This fact alone makes "let the enemy flee" always the better choice. Also, you still get loot when you let them flee. You seem to get the same amount of loot by letting them flee, than when you "chase them down".
The menu to "Let them flee" or "chase them down" is inconsistent. Most all of the time "Let them flee" is the first option, but sometimes, rarely, it is the second option. This makes it so I can hit the wrong options if i play fast.
