Update To Powers That Interact With Team-Up Tiles *Updated (5/12/17)
Back in February, we made a change to powers that target random Basic tiles to no longer include Team-Up tiles as targets. We have decided to revisit those powers, and have updated a couple of them. This change will be seen in tomorrow's daily patch.
Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff)
- Hex Bolt - Can still only target Basic tiles, however random tiles selected around the targeted tile can now destroy surrounding Team-Up tiles.
- Arcane Incantation - When the Countdown tile activates, it can now convert surrounding Team-Up tiles, as well as other Basic tiles, to Purple Basic tiles.
War Machine (James Rhodes)
- Gatling Gun - When the Countdown Tile activates, it can now destroy surrounding Team-Up tiles, as well as other Basic tiles.
Update: Hi Everyone. I spoke with the developers on this topic, and I wanted to pass along some insight into their design intent behind changing how certain abilities interact with Team-Up tiles.
The powers that were not updated were meant to be targeted powers and restricting the powers from targeting Team-Up tiles fell in-line with the original design. However, we did not intend [for] the change to be "nerfs." We would like to spend more time with the powers that weren't updated in the future, due to the player sentiment on it. We will re-evaluate the impact the change had on other characters like Quake and Cyclops (Classic)
