Gem Match / Mana Bug


I looked to see if this has been reported and I am not finding anything on the issue.

The AI is occasionally taking an extra turn on 3-gem matches, I am not getting an extra turn on 4-gem matches and some matches are not giving mana to my troops. Before it’s asked, no my troop is not silenced or under some status effect.

I originally thought it was an animation issue, because I was playing at x4 speed, so I slowed the animation down to x1 (wow, that is brutal) and it still happened. I asked about it in our guild Discord and others said they have noticed it. The too said at first they thought they were imagining it, but as it has happened more, it is becoming a huge issue.

Platform, device version and operating system
Mainly on Android, Samsung Galaxy S8, but it is happening on PC occasionally too.

Screenshot or image
No, but I occasionally stream, so planning on trying to capture this happening on stream and will make a clip to send you.

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened
AI 3-gem match, should have become my turn, there was no “extra turn” displayed, but the AI took a another turn. Some times, it happens multiple times in a row and becomes VERY game breaking.

I made a 4-gem match, expecting to get another turn, but there was no “extra turn” displayed and it became the AI’s turn.

In the latest instance of this issue: Saw my Hero (using Hope’s Crescent) at 14/15 mana, matched 3 red gems and my Hero remained at 14/15 mana.

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
This happens daily, multiple times - I wish there was a way to easily record my mobile games sense I play on it most. I vaguely recall this in the past, but it has become a real issues since 3.5 released.

Steps to make it happen again
Just play, game mode doesn’t seem to matter for it happening.


It happened a few times in my Xbox 1 as well. Made me angry as f***, because it often allowed the AI to get a 5-cascade filled with skulls, effectively managing to kill my last creature while only having one hp itself. As for the unrecieved extra turns though, it hasn’t affected me (yet), but it has affected a few of my guild members.


On my client bug most often comes like i match 4, so i should get extra turn, but before i get extra turn, ai matches 2 lines in diffrent places just like that still on my turn, and then i get extra turn…
