Andrew, they put you on console too? xD

Excellent news all around!

Time to try and force these (and new) bugs to appear :wink:

Everything looks good. Great improvements. Maybe this will get people to rethink 3x Maw decks. Keep up the great work!:sunglasses:

I can say maw teams on PC were/are significantly lower after the same update. There are new problem teams, but there always will be.

Maw’s third Trait still Devours, we had a bug where you can field 4 Maws and each could cast once. THAT’S what was fixed.

Ohhh yeah that needs to be fixed, lol. I was not fortunate enough to get maw on console, did on pc though. I spent around $30 on gems trying to get that sucker! lol Now though after the update on pc, I don’t use him. (even though I think he’s still a good troop)

Just beat this team today. (4) Mythic level 20 triple traited Great Maw’s. Swapped out my usual invade team to Maw myself and mopped em up… carefully

It is possible to have in the map screen earned souls too?
