Platform, device version and operating system:: Happened while I was able to record on Steam, I’m fairly sure I’ve had it happen on mobile as well but not while I was able to record

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
Before 5.7 if you matched a doom skull in a 4- or 5-match with other skulls you would get an extra turn. Now you do sometimes, but not always.
How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Maybe only with the “T” shape and the doomskull being at the intersection; might also require another skull touching but not in-line. Still trying to reproduce exactly the same situation.
Steps to make it happen again
Match doomed skull with regular skulls in a T 5-match. No troops frozen. No extra turn.
(Third-edit… See zRrr’s many examples below of positive and negative results.)
edit: Notice also, Bloodthirsty did not trigger. Hero should be enraged after 4-match, and is not.
2nd edit: I’m pretty sure this is being processed as two 3-matches. In slow-mo you can see one of the frames shows 102 and 153 damage. That’s 97+5 from doomskull in one 3-match, and 153 damage is 97*1.5 from enrage, plus 5 from doomskull, plus 3 extra from adjacent skulls maybe. (then there must be some rounding, since 254 damage was done, but 102+153 = 253… but enrage is 1.5x so you get a spare 0.5 damage that was not displayed)
ok, this is a weird one. I’ve taken a skull converter team out for a ride to see if I could reproduce this with converted skulls, and I haven’t seen the same bug appear, so I’m not 100% sure I have the root cause identified… but something is definitely screwy in the video. Maybe a different bug.
these examples are great. In the first few where it didn’t proc as an extra turn, there were extra adjacent skulls the same as my example. But in some of your later ones, there are no other skulls nearby, so that’s clearly not the (only) cause of this bug.
If I remember well, this bug was fixed a long time ago. However, from my experience, this bug was brought back to the game with the update around July 25. It just happened randomly everywhere (not only doomskull matches, but could be gems, skulls, etc). I have encountered this in Arena and explore (not yet in GW, fortunately ) many times since then.
I thought this was a big call for Salty/the dev team to make, at the time! I wanted to ask for details, but knew that seemed unlikely .
I remember this particular bug being fixed a while ago, as well. I haven’t been playing heaps, so it’s perhaps not too surprising that I haven’t particularly noticed it, but I definitely did feel like what Tibo described happened to me, about damage potentially being absorbed, or potentially multiple matches only counting as fewer or one match/instance of damage …
@OminousGMan or @Jeto just wanted to make sure this didn’t fall off the radar; saw a number of weekend bug reports get touched, but this was left behind… this is a serious game-breaking bug that would be really nice to have addressed before guildwars?
