What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
Usually banners have either +1 to two colors, or +2 / +1 / -1. The new Maze Banner for tomorrow’s faction
introduces a +2 / +2 / -1 combination.
Game files for kingdom Id 3059 say this:
How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Will begin tomorrow
Steps to make it happen again
use my discord bot command !kingdom 3059, or any other site with up-to-date kingdom info
There’s only so many colors that the banners are gonna be able to come from. So this may be their solution to that issue. Considering their desire to monetize even getting banners. I’m inclined to believe this is working as intended. Especially since we already have. +2 Red, +1 Green and and +2 Green, +1 Red.
As always, if you want dev confirmation though I don’t blame you.
My guess would be it’s unintentional. We have other banners that are almost the same too: we have +2 Red, +1 Green, -1 Blue AND +2 Red, +1 Green, -1 Brown. +2 Red, +1 Green, -1 Purple would fit right in.
If it was +2 Red, +2 Green, -2 Purple, that would make more sense.
That’s a normal delay for a bug report. For some I waited several months to get some feedback. Just be patient, I am confident they will confirm whether this is a bug or not in a few weeks.
Or maybe we could think of it like this: I reported this before it went live. So even assuming it was not intended, changing it now would take away something from the players. Meaning by not having a response, we can now treat it as intentional, even if it was a bug.
Word of advice, let this get handled by whoever is responsible for processing bug reports. It’s very apparent that the banner isn’t supposed to work this way to anyone who ever did a bit of game design, someone just hit a wrong key when entering the numbers. This hasn’t reached the devs yet, marking it as [NOT A BUG] yourself will just cause it to fall through the cracks, requiring another bug report to get fixed.
The devs confirming this to be intended is done through the bug report process. Any information Salty shares in streams is for entertainment purposes and subject to change. Not meaning to sound mean, I got the impression that Salty didn’t even fully understand your request.
