Last AI update has brought a lot of frustration.
I have think about it and maybe there is a simple way to “fix” it.
Devs wanted to give to AI more chances to win.
I don’t know exactly how they do it, but it seems clear that in overal there are way more chance in game to get 4+ matches falling from the sky, for us and for AI.
I heard several times that they also introduce a combo breaker in the system (and I have to say that being forced to do that is a clear symptom that something is wrong).
As a result, we get a lot of cascades magically falling from the sky, sometimes so annoying that you see defense’s teams filling themselves in one turn after matching only 3 gems.
I believe our attack teams do sometimes the same, but it’s more obvious when we suffer it
But cascades doesn’t explain all.
I think there are in game now too much self-looping troops or combo.
Some troops are able to cast several times in a row (like DAT LOOP Webspinner).
Some teams can loop forever (Alchemist / Hellcat ; Green Seer / Giant Spider ; Dark Troll / Rock Troll ; etc).
What is the real problem in those 2 (cascades from hell and overlooping teams/troops) ?
Making a lot of mana AND getting an extra turn, monopolizing the game.
You can see more and more frequently a team destroying you in one turn, letting you just be a spectator of your own destruction.
Really frustrating, isn’t it ?
We all liked it when AI was too stupid to do it.
We now are a lot to complain because AI avenges itself.
So should Devs rework a lot of troops ?
Should they manipulate again their code ?
Well, yes they should but that would be a huge and long work to do.
Like I said, there is maybe a simple thing to do, like my topic claims it :
Why not simply remove the extra turns on 4+ matches ?
Cascades and actual looping teams/troops will always be able to make a lot of mana, remaining powerful and dangerous, but each side of the board will be able to do something.
I think it will be less frustrating, everybody will get a chance to play in each battle and a bad RNG will be less influential than now.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day.
