And before you start running tests and tell us how fair it is: you’re missing the point… it isn’t fun!
People have been posting this exact same thing for years now, first in Puzzle Quest and now in Gems of War. You keep defending it as being fair, but that’s not what this is about.
You even said that you have code in place to prevent it, but it’s only enabled for matches on normal difficulty. Which means it wouldn’t take that much work to enable it ALL the time, and get rid of this once and for all.
For the record, we’re talking about 4er and 5er moves just keep falling into the screen, one after the other… Or even just 15 3er moves just forming one after the other, often combined with a 4er in between, so that it can all happen again, in one turn.
We are not talking about looping teams, that generate blue gems for example, to try and make 4ers/5ers themselves to keep going.
Please for once respond to the issue not being fun, instead of being fair. If you remove it for both player and AI, it is just as fair as it is now…
The game is already very random… And a lot of that randomness is not something you can easily fix.
This issue however, should have died a long long time ago…
