The command allows a player to "block" much of the spam seen
fighting in a formation. This command is very useful when fighting
multiple numbers of mobs (such as the centipedes in the catacombs)
or fighting with a large formation.
When brief combat is on, (combat shown in brief), you will only see
your fighting spam. You will not, however see if the players
in the formation are hit by mobs unless they are critically hit.
When brief combat is off, (combat shown in full), you will see the
full formation's fight.
