You read that correctly! Due to the issues encountered with Lycanthropy in conjunction with essence of evil we have temporarily removed the chance for lycanthropy to trigger when using essence of evil.
We are working on an overall fix for lycanthropy but it will require a client update to come into effect. We thought this was the best option for now, and when the lycanthropy fix is released essence of evil will be reverted back.
This fix is being pushed now, but may take time to propagate across all regions and platforms.
I strongly agree with this. As long as “lycanthroped” troops come back cleansed, healed, fully leveled, etc., lycanthropy should not be considered a negative status effect—and therefore should not be associated with Essence of Evil or any other spell that places negative effects.
I agree as well. I don’t think that the inflicted troop should be affected this way. At the very least, halve the level and remove traits and ascension as a normal transformation should do. That said, I respect the devs for their recent gesture.
Please consider making it permanent. As implemented, lycantrophy is not a negative status effect. Nor is it positive really, since it does mess with the team dynamics. Perhaps it’s time to add a third category of status effects: neutral. With that, you can add all sorts of gimmicky status effects that are only applied by select few troops
Something was just pointed out to me on Discord. EoE now applies status effects in a different order. First curse, then stun, then the rest. Which is big buff to EoE, it can now inflict all the statuses on an impervious troop while it previously just cursed it.
@Saltypatra Is this temporary or permanent? Also, this is a pretty big deal imo, the kind of thing we love to hear about instead of discovering it ourselves
Buenas a todos. Me alegra mucho que se aplique esta solución temporal, No obstante en el caso de las guerras de gremio el daño ya está hecho. En en caso de SINERGIA , nos ha costado una barbaridad de combates congelados y de derrotas por tener que reiniciar. Como se va a solucionar esto @Saltypatra ? Gracias
