Your problem is you can look but not touch I make Green, get sets of 4-5, and play again. And again. And again.
You have a blue/yellow banner. Does not help if you’re matching Green. Meanwhile, I get all the Green sets of 4-5, since I turn whatever Gem makes the match INTO Green. Nothing random here!
Oh, you want to compare with surges then? Ok. My Green Seer charges up in just one surge of purple, with extra going to the Boar Rider. The board gets so full of Green and Purple that when I make a set of 4-5, I get extra chains and everything’s suddenly full (infcluding, eventually, the Hydra). It’s not stupid, it just works. Go try it, you’ll love it.
Actually, you’re describing your own strategy. I get to pick what I turn Green/Purple. No luck there. If you ever manage to use Celestasia, you better pray the gems she creates give you another turn, because if you end up hitting your Paladin, you might just be giving me a whole lot of Green to trample you with. Same goes for Yellow, which still charges up my Green Seer.
Of course, in a magical place where he never has to get any gems, and can just look my way and I die. Not in this game, where he can’t do a thing without Celestasia feeding him gems AFTER she’s filled herself. You’re looking at a minimum 3 turns for old Celestasia (without surges), and only THEN can you start on Mr. Paladin. Sure, he doesn’t care Boar Rider is at the back. Too bad he doesn’t get an extra turn when he attacks. As it is, he’s slooooow.
Have you ever actually played this combo? You get a 4-5 combo off single troops like Celestasia, Webspinner or Rock Worm. Here, the combo, with the Boar Rider adjusting the board, lasts forever. It’s just slow killing the opponent. But you don’t get a turn for ages. Then, when you do, you get ONE turn before it’s off to combo lock country again.
Oh, I get it. You have no idea how this works. I didn’t have to sell it very hard in the previous match-ups. Read about it on the forum, or try it yourself. It’s sick, and works like clockwork. It’s no accident it’s ranked one of the top 3 teams in the game.
Celestasia turns into marshmallows, Rowanne into sticks and the Gemsmith makes a fire in the Paladin’s helmet and we all have delicious roasted Celestasial marshmallows!
