Even if all the upgrades are visually represented in the team at racing time, there have been multiple requests about displaying upgrades alongside the rest of the contextual team info.
So, tgb give me this idea:


Like it? What do you think?

And actually, if you are adding this would be cool to see the faction name too. I know the color represents it, but I can't remember all of them, so would be nice to just see at a glance.

Yes I could see this helping someone initially unfamiliar with the game. However, once you have played for awhile the graphical changes are sufficient, and really quite elegant.

Looks great. I currently have trouble distinguishing auriga upgrades.

That would be great.

Could we get an On/Off toggle for the experienced ones who like to keep it clean (as it is now)? I could see myself using this for awhile but eventually taking the training wheels off once (if) the graphical indications are all memorized.

I like this suggestion. I cannot remember what the different shades of color mean, and they are way too subtle in my opinion.

Also, in the same tooltip, please show how many victories the Auriga has. I can never remember who the top dogs are from the City screen, and I want to know during the race so I can try to take them out!

I think this helps -- many thanks! Maybe, if possible, this extra info could be option to turn on/off as players wish?

It only appears when the tooltip is active not so it's not annoying
another option I am considering is to differentiate leaders from "normal" aurigas

This will be great, my most difficult one is the horses so this will definitely help out.

Thumbs up for showing the team name. And it'll be nice to be available to shut down the accurate report in menu for less casual gameplay. Correct evaluation of your enemies' advantages and disadvantages needs some skill.

I bought a horse with 2 SPEED and 1 ENDURANCE.
I also have 1 SPEED 2 ENDURANCE horses on my team, but I put the faster ones to the Auriga I'm starting at the race.

Yet I keep seeing the wrong horses getting started. I am significantly slower than other chariots that have slower stats than me, so I'm sure it must be the other horses.

The same is true for other chariots as well though, their stats and appearance (horse colours) seem to be swapped too.

Is this something that was introduced by the latest patch or has it been this way from the beginning? I haven't added the latest patch yet.
Thanks.

It is just a graphic glitch that shows one drop instead of one arrow for the dark grey horse and the opposite for the light grey horse. It does not affect gameplay.

Aren't the hammer and lightning icons also switched on the tooltip? In my current game, it looks like I have a "medium" chariot -- a size upgrade, no quality upgrade, so the tooltip should be a hammer. But I see a lightning icon on my tooltip.

I have tested this with a basic paesina chariot -one single size upgrade- and it shows the single hammer correctly

Subjectively, it does seem that the horses are slower than expected. Logically that wouldn't make sense because showing the stats was added in the update, so it shouldn't affect the race code.
