When I noticed this, it was happening to the AI opponent (in the Arena), but regardless, it didn’t feel quite right that the mechanic worked this way. I was since able to reproduce it in Explore mode (see screenshot below).
The enemy was down to the last man standing, who was the mighty and flamboyant Sacrificial Priest. Low on life and outnumbered, he knew the end was nigh. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and so the brave elder made sure his swansong would be a sight to behold…
Sacrifical Priest, as the last troop remaining in the line-up, used his ability on himself and successfully summoned an Abhorath to replace him. However…
What you were expecting to happen?
Sacrificial Priest dies, but summons a fresh Abhorath to replace him on the battlefield. The enemy’s turn ends, and the fight continues.
and what actually happened?
Abhorath went “wait, whaaaaaaat?!” as the Victory screen showed up for me, fully denying him any chance to fight back, despite him showing up to save the day for his team.
What are the steps to make it happen again?
Sacrifice the Sacrificial Priest when it’s your last remaining troop, get a lucky 30% roll, and lose anyway.
