(How) do tags work?

Hey guys, I found this game today in the playstore and it's awesome! really cool concept.
However as you can read in the title I already have a problem with tags. I wanted to use them to distinguish my bots, using one as a 'leader' and the rest as 'followers', creating a team that stays together.
To this end I made 2 test A.I.s, one immediatelly tags itself '1' and the other tags itself '2'. This seems to work; in game they clearly have the tag numbers over them. However when I give number 2 the only other command: 'Flee from all ally (tagged 1)' I expect the bot to walk away from the ally tagged 1, but it doesn't do anything.
I first tried it with a condition 'If ally tagged 1 is in short range', but simplified it to this as this didn't activate. Now even without a condition the command 'Flee from all ally (tagged 1)' doesn't activate.

Below you can see screenshots of the A.I.s and the situation in battle, as you can see it's really simple, yet it doesn't work. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Or is this an actual bug?

Awesome thanks to the one that can help me!
PS: do we get bigger teams than 4 bots in later levels?

There are two types of tags, personal and team. Bots can't see each other's personal tags. So your bot#2 has no idea that the other bot tagged himself 1.

Solutions:
1) Use team tags instead of personal tags, then they'll be able to see each other's.
2) Tag the other bots with personal tags. Example: Tag myself as 1, tag the closest untagged bot as 2.

Sorry for asking an obvious question

No problem.

And regarding team size, in multiplayer unranked you can play up to 9 vs 9, but it's 4 vs 4 for everything else.
