Is it intentional or a bug? If you have multiples of a troop with a once per battle power only one of them can use the power.
Pretty sure it is intentional, i seem to remember not too long ago you could fire off multi maws and they fixed it so you could not
Yes, this has been explained as intentional, specifically because of The Great Maw.
It’s also a common complaint, because that is about the only card that didn’t need a 2nd cast to be worth it.
Cool. I hadn’t realized they had done that until I fought a couple teams that had for the same card and once one of them use the power the others were greyed-out
Yeah, unfortunately this is another of those unintuitive mechanics that you only “get” by experiencing it. I suspect that this nuance is hard to get across in the little blurbs they have as tooltips. (In general, GoW suffers from a lack of concise and accurate wordsmithing, which makes some tasks like looking up spell effects needlessly difficult.)
Would be fair to ask the devs to change it to once per card, still wouldn’t expect to see 3 maw teams.
Fun fact: The lead designer wanted for no duplicate Troops allowed but compromise was reached with other interested parties, which led to the compromise of dupes being allowed & this odd-ball behavior for certain ones!
