I lt means kraken isn’t as awesome as he was.

Tentacles will only do 3 damage even if the whole board becomes green. Rest in pieces

When a match is first made, regardless of the number of matches made with that one move (or spell), traits will only trigger once. Once gems fall and matches are resolved again, traits will fire again.

TL;DR: Traits only fire once per matching resolution.


This makes a whole new sense for me now, I thought it only could go off once per turn.

also gonna kill elem reduction of attack as well lol

Bonus for unique troops will be 0 for this week. Bonuses will be added from next week.


I hope everyone is happy… I wonder what the new meta will be lol

No more kraken… No more wisp… What is everyone gonna complain about?

Sure hope the world dont end… Well if it does i still have vault 101 to go to… Hope nobody tries to steal my sweetroll…


No new trophies?! x(

So do gem priorities no longer affect gw defense, or will they have to be changed everyday?

Did Guild Wars change defenses on this patch or No ???

Nevermind it’s patching on ps4 now.

The button has been pushed, so it should be propagating out now.
