It is unusual for a suggestion to be not to do something, that was not even announced, but this one is important.
There is one reliable way to stop a journey troop in PVP, before it goes on an unstoppable loop, and that is freezing, preferably snap freeze.
There is one reliable way to circumvent freezing while starting a loop, and that is to have Beetrix in a team.
Beetrix is mythic/wildfolk type. Of those two, the mythic part is the even more dangerous one, as there are multiple converter troops with the empowered trait, who are mythics.
Depending on the plan, there are either two more journey troops with the current spell pattern “Do damage and create colour x gems for each type y ally” coming (blue and yellow), or a whole lot more, if it is intended to bring in one for each type.
I do heavily suggest, not to make any of those a mythic type, and preferably leave out the wildfolk type as well.
There have been a couple of troops and weapons, that have proven to be problematic in PVP. However, none would be as devastating as this creature, if it existed.
The people in development are not familiar with the game and its mechanics, so I think it is important to spell this out before the disaster strikes:
A mythic journey troop would KILL PVP.
Do NOT do that.
