What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
6 hours ago, a hot fix was deployed to remove Lycanthropy from the game.

However, Lycanthropy is still in game. Magnus just cast it. I first saw it at about 10:20 AM EST when an enemy Magnus cast it on one of my troops. I then restarted my game in case that was necessary, and at about 10:30 AM EST, saw it again when my own Magnus casted Lycanthropy on an enemy troop, as displayed in the above screenshot. So a restart doesn’t fix it.

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Since Lycanthropy was released, but it’s only a bug since the hot fix today.

Steps to make it happen again
Put Magnus on your team. Get a bunch of 4 gem matches to trigger his trait. Eventually Lycanthropy will be cast on an enemy.


Some good news: Lycanthropy on hero does NOT make the board freeze! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: Taken from @Shadowfeld:

So far I haven’t seen, or heard from anyone that got a transform from Lycanthropy. So maybe it’s just a visual bug?

God, I hope they keep that thing in. The outrage is hilarious

I wasn’t trying to burn anyone. I just like watching meltdowns.

I’m pretty sure that what they meant was removing the chance of lycanthropy transforming a troop, not the ability for a troop to get lycanthropy.
