  • I like the "Liquid Nitrogen" freeze tile for board control, though the AI probably won't care and still match it anyway, so it would only potentially work on defense. Even then, your own team controlled by AI would probably mindlessly match it and stun themselves.
  • I was about to post that your Quick Shot was horribly overpowered, "0AP are you crazy!!!" and then saw that it ends turn, /rage rant dies.

    This is an interesting list, I like it. It sounds like Nuclear football would be hard to implement though.

    Good point on the AI. I pictured it as only able to freeze the other team. It's kind of clunky. Maybe it should be written as a special tile that while on the board it stuns an opponent when you match blue. Level 2-5 is -1 AP, +1 tile, -1 AP, +1 tile.

    Ha Ha, yea, it has to end your turn, unless you get a match 5+.

    Yea, it would be hard to tell that there were 2 layers on the nuclear football.

    This would be great for Wolverine and Daken - you could just go to one of the early levels, and keep casting it until they've healed to full health. I suspect nothing like this skill will be introduced because of this...

    Yea, it would have to be basic tiles only. Modern storm would actually be a counter in that case. icon_razz.gif Still, I think this skill would be a little OP. The character would probably need to be squishy.

    I don't see it being that much of an advantage for Wolverine and Daken though. If it costs 0 AP then it does the same damage as a match. I don't think it would be that much different than if you played an early mission with them now.

    I assumed it would just do the damage from that one tile, eg 1/3 of a match, so the low level early opponents would survive for longer than if you were matching tiles, giving Wolverine/Daken/X23/Deadpool/Native/who else self-heals?/etc more time to regenerate.
    So it would be a way to save on health packs, if your Wolverine/etc is damaged you could just go to an early level, and use "Quick Shot" - you'd kill the enemy three times more slowly than normal, so you'd have three times longer to heal.

    It is an interesting idea for an ability though, as are the others in your post too.
