It’s funny that it cannot see moves but will mana-deny you to Hell and back.
The Combo Breaker being on for the player and off for the AI is also blatantly obvious. I have not received a single Map from a cascade since the update, when I would have had approximately 12 in the 83 games I have played. The catch-up logic is responsible for this, you gain a lot of Mana one turn, the AI does as well.
In response, I have removed all RNG-based Troops from my teams and yet, it’s incredibly common for the AI to still manipulate the board to prevent you from matching your Banner colors. Cascades and combos WILL continue until you are not able to match your Banner colors.
I have demonstrated I know the Console AI extremely well. I insisted it was flawed even when we were assured by the development team that it was fine. After much prodding, they investigated and found I was correct all along and are in the process of correcting it.
The AI is behaving exactly the way it used to before they determined a problem and made adjustments. It appears the adjustments have “worn off”.
