Mountain mercenaries hero.say

Hi everyone, I don’t understand my code for this level

# Gather coins to summon soldiers and have them attack the enemy.

while True:
    # Move to the nearest coin.
    # Use move instead of moveXY so you can command constantly.
    coin = hero.findNearestItem()
    if coin:
    hero.say("I need coins!")
    # If you have funds for a soldier, summon one.
    if > hero.costOf("soldier"):
        hero.say("I should summon something here!")
    enemy = hero.findNearest(hero.findEnemies())
    if enemy:
        soldiers = hero.findFriends()
        soldierIndex = 0
        # Loop over all your soldiers and order them to attack.
        while soldierIndex < len(soldiers):
            soldier = soldiers[soldierIndex]
            hero.command(soldier, "attack", enemy)
            soldierIndex += 1
            # Use the 'attack' command to make your soldiers attack.
            #hero.command(soldier, "attack", enemy)            

This was my original code but my soldiers were not attacking enemies and my hero was stuck.
I deleted hero.say("I need coins!") and hero.say("I should summon something here!") and it worked but I don’t understand why.
I thought the say function shouldn’t affect other functions.

the say function takes 1 second to compleate so it slows down your code

It would slow down the speed that you command your soldiers and your attacking do to delay by the hero.say method

And also, once you understand it, mark sulotion, and delete that code
