This is a very weird decision made for the new Initiative tracker.
In the previous version it was possible to add a monster or NPC or even a PC to the tracker without any roll made. Now, if I select a creature that needs to be added to the tracker, it inmediately rolls for initiative on the chat. This is not very useful for those of us who want to keep rolls from enemies secret (behind the screen).
The first unintended result of this decision is that now players know the name of the creature or enemy they are facing. Unless it is a mosnters or NPC they have faced, reading its name in the chat with the roll destroys the purpose of “behind the screen roll” and also the discovery of the creature in question. In large maps, or maps with many walls and enemies preparing a surprise attack, it kills the immersion.
Please, either eliminate the roll of initiative when adding monsters to the tracker, or at least make the initiative roll message invisible.
The only way I have seen to make this work after this update, is to hide the monsters for a second, add them to the tracker and then “unhide” the mosnters again.
I know there is a setting that hides the enemies from the tracker, which is great, but I have not find a way to either eliminate that initiative roll or to hide it.
Please, allow the option to avoid this roll. The way it works now compared to how it worked in the past, it’s actually a step back in an otherwise great update.
