Ok, I’ve been playing for a couple of weeks, doing ok in my guild, but I’m puzzled by something: I’ll look at a dual-color troop who’s at 7/10, rub my rhetorical hands together as I contemplate filling its pool with an available match, and after completing the match and seeing the mana flow animation, the count is still at 7/10. I’ve also had a case where I scored 5 mana combined of both colors for the troop, and the total only went up by a couple of points. I almost always have only one troop of a given color, and understand the troop ordering, so the mana isn’t showing up somewhere else, it’s just having no noticeable effect.
Thinking it through I’ve considered that rather than both colors combining into a single pool it may be that they are tracked separately, and the listed total represents the larger of the two totals, but I’ve seen nothing in the available documentation to indicate that. Anybody want to resolve my confusion?
