I’m sorry I’m writing this in the Bugs section. But I feel like this is the only forum category that is visited by devs and that our feedback about this issue in the news thread might have been ignored.
7.1 Battle Area in the Pause Menu is another proof that noone in devs team plays their own game.
Let’s have a look.
The area contains the name and the image of the banner. This might look great. But we actually don’t need to know this while in battle. We need to simply understand how much mana we are going to get after the gem match, which has become really inconvenient now.
Before 7.1 all mana bonuses were shown on screen, and we could easily check them any time. Now we can see only the banner bonus, and to calculate the totals, we have to manually check each troop/hero.
For example, I’ve made this team.
In battle I see the following mana bonus: +2 red, +1 purple, -1 brown:
While, in fact, this bonus should be
+4 red (+1 for Hero’s Firebringer trait, +1 for Kurandara’s Fire Link trait)
+1 blue (+1 for Axolotl’s Water Link trait)
0 brown (+1 for Acolyte’s Stone Link trait)
Pre-7.1 I could easily see this after just one look at the pause menu.
