Currently, the earliest event available when a unit advances fires when the advancement path is already chosen, which in particular also means it fires after the user has gone through the advancement dialog if there are several options. In my opinion, it would make sense to add another event that fires before all this happens. This would have several advantages (I'm sure that there are others):

  • The wiki says that "if this event removes the unit, changes the unit's type, or reduces the unit's experience below what it needs to advance, then the advancement is aborted." It would be nicer and less confusing if this happened before the advancement dialog is shown.
  • It'd be possible to display messages or other things before anything related to advancements happens.
  • One could even modify the possible advancement options to take effect for the advancement process about to start.

I am not suggesting to modify the existing "advance" event in any way, but simply to add a "preadvance" event.
