Sometimes in this game I'm just running around as a garden variety cold blooded mass murderer, but sometimes I commit the unspeakable crime of... purchasing property‽
I frequently find myself at max Templar Awareness, which causes the meter to have a red flashing background. If I do something to reduce it somewhat (bribing a witness or assassinating a herald... wait, I might have that backwards... sorry heralds :( ), the background of the meter stays red. If I can manage to bottom it completely out, it goes back to black, however.
So to summarize:
- at 100%, the meter is flashing red
- Once it's been to 100%, but before I do enough to make it 0%, the background stays red but stops flashing.
- At 0%, the background goes back to black, and stays that way regardless of my awareness, until I hit 100% again.
Is there anything different about the second state versus the third? Should I be completely eliminating my awareness any time it hits the max in order to avoid some penalty?
