I am suggesting a simple, yet quite effective change that should improve the gameplay experience for quite a bit. It often happens that I miscalculated the affected gems on the board when it comes to predicting certain abilities or spells that affect the grid in certain shapes or patterns.
One more obvious and standing-out example is the ability to cast 3x3 grid or 5x5, X shapes, rows or columns, and specific gem colors prior to casting the ability.
I could list more of them, but you know of what troops I speak of.
Players could also list more examples.
Obsidius - Ability: Shatter Earth
The ability is explained, but it should be shown on the board as well when casting.
The current example has no indicators. Miscalculation occurs often without a keen eye.
The ability after the casting does what it supposed to do, but prior to casting would be better.
You can do this in two forms.
The first one is that all the affected gems on the board would be shaking prior to casting.
The second one is that all the affected gems on the board should be highlighted somehow.
