Mindless Ones Passive generates AP

MoosePrimeMoosePrime Posts: 47 Just Dropped In
The mindless ones generate AP in the color of their passive.  In today's Big Enchelada, the match starts with a Brute, who has a yellow passive creating a protect tile at the start of the match.  After one turn, with no tile movers on the team (and thus no matches made by the AI), the team has 1 yellow AP.

Since the power is a passive, it should not be generating AP in that color.

    This is not the only case of non-tile-moving characters generating AP in colors they have as passive skills.  I'm not certain, but I think this is intended behavior.

    Which other ones still do?

    The snipers used to generate green, but they changed it so that they don't.

    Do Brotherhood mutants with "Detonate" no longer generate black?

    Don't believe so.

    This is still happening, or is this a feature? Don't think the AP should be generated. In the revamped Honor Among Thieves, sub 3, 4* essential you get to fight Nova who's already getting free red AP, but because of this behaviour also gets free black AP, which results in potentially a lot of free damage done. Well... guaranteed use of his black ability if you don't down or stun him after 8 turns in the best scenario.

    @Brigby Could you maybe inform if this is being looked at? Or am I the only one having problems with this bug (until informed otherwise, I'm calling this a bug). Thanks in advance!

    It's the wonders of AP generating goons.  The community has long complained about feeder nodes, where goons are feeding ap to a hero/villain, in addition to the hero/villain making matches to add more ap.  They attempted to band aid the situation before in venom bomb, by completely removing the hero/villain's powers, or severely nerfing those said powers being fed by ap goons.  This is intended behavior, and we all wish it wasn't so.

    Hi @StevO-J It does seem peculiar that Mindless Ones generate AP off of passive abilities. I've relayed this to the developers, and they'll be sure to investigate. Thanks!
