What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
Sentinel class talent, add 20% of armor to skull damage. Character was entagled which made attack zero, however, based on how it is written, 20% of armor value should still be available, yet it did zero damage. Happening every time in tower currently, haven’t used it anywhere else yet.
Was this a once-off bug or has it been a consistent issue? Does it only happen after doing a particular game mode?
Don’t know yet, haven’t tested it further
Steps to make it happen again
Open and play apparently.
It’s been long-standing that Entangled really fixes your Attack at 0. If you gain any attack while Entangled, it has no effect. Even after you lose Entangled, you don’t get that attack. So there’s some argument that “traits that augment damage might not have an effect”, but…
What happens if you’re Entangled and match Doomskulls? Do you get the +5?
If that’s the case, I feel like this trait’s behaving badly. Really the argument comes down to if we think the armor value is added to attack or damage.
In my opinion, the trait says damage, so it should be done. Troops with that trait ought to be slightly resistant to Entangled. If that’s not the intent, the trait needs to be written so it says what it does.
Yeah this is the basis of my argument. To me “damage” is your attack plus any bonuses. If the ability said “add to attack” I’d say that based on how entangled works in other scenarios it should be 0. But it says “add to damage”. (.2*armor) + 0 is (.2*armor).
I generally think Doomskulls behave weirdly/inconsistently, regardless - e.g., using a ‘Slayer’ type troop such as Gob-Chomper or a Siegebreaker multiplies the added Doomskull damage, does it not (could definitely be mistaken)?
Apparently not simple enough. See, simple is using the proper word. What makes you believe that it is working as intended when it is basing it on attack and not damage as stated. This is not a grammatical problem, it’s a mistake either in wording or execution.
The problem is they use the Russian translator to write the English text, the English translator to write the French text, and the Aussie translators do the French text. Lining these three groups up with the right language is the hardest problem in computer science. That’s why Scepter of Anu means “any color except blue” when it really means “any non-blue color”, it turns out Australia has no word for blue. If their computer has a blue screen of death, they get confused and think their monitor disappeared.
It says add 20% to skull damage. If you deal no skull damage then there is nothing to add because you dealt no skull damage. If you are entangled and match 4 skulls then you actually deal damage and the 20% is then added. Same with having a doomskull in a skull match.
