I think I already saw someone talked about it somewhere, but I can’t seem to find it anymore, so I just post it here.
The “Try Out” option does not look very useful. Obviously, something like that suggests itself, so that user won’t rely completely on RNG.
But how about replacing “Try Out” with something like “Take a closer look” which could be more expensive, for example, but can show potential talents of a recruit instead? Something like:
Melee Attack (**?)
Melee Defence (***?)
I think even suggestion about talents of a recruit is more important than some additional negative (or positive) trait.
