Love to be able to pay to shuffle the board

After keeping some stats for the last 4 weeks on how many times the board is at a place where there is only 1 set of gems that can match (and most of the time not something I can use)

Number of times the board is at a place where it is my turn and there is only one set of gems that will match - 107
Number of times the board is at a place where it is the opponent’s turn and there is only one set of gems that will match -17

Number of times after the board has reset the opponent now has several matching sets (4+ gems) 45
Number of times after the board has reset that I have several matching (4+ gems) - 2

Now granted I don’t have total number of plays taken, number of games played for additional stats, but the basic first pass really seem that the opponent gets far more times a reset board for their turn

I propose that there be an option presented only at time when it is clear that there is currently only 1 set of gems that could match - to take turn or shuffle board

I think that would be a lot more realistic. And it cost me a gem or such.

Eh…I sympathize, but I don’t like the idea of currency being spent in a match to affect the outcome. Plus, that’s just part of the game. Sometimes you’re left without a good move and have to deal with it. The game’s easy enough as it is to give the player additional handicaps.

Plus, RNG is always willing to screw you over even after you pay that gem. This would never be worth the price.

I’m with @lyya on this. Never want to see currency being paid in-game. Else next we’ll have ‘pay 5 gems to supercharge your spells…’ Next step pvz2…

Plus there’s this thing with bias. Opponent probably had 1 match option more times but you can’t really notice it because they do that match right away.
Considering all the advantages a player has, there’s no reason to further help the player.

The game already gets a lot of heat b/c the “AI Cheats”. Many people seem convinced that the game deliberately cheats in order to try to get you to spend money. I can only imagine how much worse this would be if there was an option to pay to shuffle the board.

Good point Studs… I hadn’t considered that aspect about the AI and deliberately having to spend.
