Hi, @ekto-gamat. Most probably a bug we are aware of but not able to reproduce and when we can't reproduce it, we can't check where is the problem.
So, if you have any suggestions or possible repro steps, we will be happy to know them.
/edit: Thanks for the previous post. The page didn't refresh in time
I imagine this bug has little effect in higher league wars and pvp, because with mutant runes and high ranked relics there is so much life on every monster that it does not happen very often that they die from damage over time.
In Duels, with lower runes on monsters without relics, things often become very 'messy' and unpredictable. The same is probably true for lower level PVP and wars. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, just not how it was intended.
Example from the Dungeons.
Looking at the first screenshot, the turn order should be:
What happened is illustrated by the second screenshot:
I let O'Reilly charge for scientific purposes
Ahran gets his turn and burns to death
Valgar's turn is skipped, which you can see from the second screenshot in which his life is still the same.
Uriel gets his turn and burns to death
O'Reilly's turn is skipped
Darmith's Bodyguard gets his turn
Paid a bit of attention. Same in Dungeons and in PVP. It's most likely a global bug.
Really wonder how and why this bug has returned.
Quite ironic, because when @Carlos wanted to fix it years ago I was opposed to fixing it since it had always been like that and strategies were built around it.
@carlos is aware but I believe its not always the case so hard to recreate
I am not sure it is not always the case. At least in Duels it's a rule: monster dies from d.o.t. and the next monster in line is skipped.
I saw an 'outrageous' offer like this for another elite monster
That was O'Reilly and the funny thing is that they are not even classified as 'elite'. They just put a Dodge Area tax on those as it seems - just ludicrous
I remember the one I saw before now. It was the megataunt flame monster. Apparently megataunt comes with an extra tax as well.
Quite odd that they put a supertax on O'Reilly and Helgudin when they have been breedable in past events and at least in the case of Helgudin have been in a progressive event which was relatively cheap.
These offers seem to cater to the whales with little patience and time.
Is this a joke or sign of things to come? Should I put this in the bug section??
I saw an 'outrageous' offer like this for another elite monster I cannot remember, recently. I guess it is SP's way of separating the elite monsters from the 'regular boys and girls'.
The best response of the player base simply is not buying such offers so SP will stop them.
For F2P players the best option to rank monsters like those really is trying your luck at breeding events and then gathering elemental cells. 499 gems for 120 cells is extremely expensive compared to other values you can get for your gems.
