    • Tiles cleared by a line clear, from matching 4 or more tiles, will not trigger passives that deal additional damage for matches. This impacts the following powers: 
      • America Chavez (Young Avengers) - Punch Everyone
      • Lockjaw (Royal Bulldog) - Loyal Protector
      • Rogue (Classic) - Power Siphon
      Some elaboration on this would be helpful.

      For America, the power states that she gains a match damage boost for every additional ap in her colors. From what I understand, destroyed tiles deal damage based on the character's match damage for that particular tile color. So if you gain all ap from rows destroyed by match 4/5s, shouldn't that gained ap factor into the match damage for the destroyed tiles if it's one of her colors? Perhaps I have the whole match damage/destroyed tiles thing completely wrong, but if not, sounds like a nerf. 

      For Lockjaw, this makes complete sense. His power dictates that it procs on enemy matches of friendly special tiles, so destroyed ap from match 4/5s shouldn't count. If it was working that way, then this is a nerf as well, but a fair one. 

      Rogue again confuses me, but moreso because I don't understand her power well enough in this context to begin with. It says friendly matches will provide double the ap and triple the damage, so applying the same logic as Lockjaw's power, then tiles in the power's color that are destroyed by match 4/5's should produce double ap. If it wasn't already working this way, then that is definitely news to me.

      @Brigby

      I've gotta think this is really hurting you guys money making not spreading these packs out.  I would probably have no brainer bought this in a month or two, but eh... wallet is hurting after the last two...

      Thanks to the devs for the option to disable the enemies ap bar. I can love the game again.

      I think what this is saying is that tiles destroyed in the line that the match was made will not benefit from the passives increasing damage. It doesn't have anything to do with the AP. Below numbers assume level 5 in skill:

      America - I don't have her champed, but it sounds like before this change, if you made a match 4 with America then the damage from not only the match 4, but all the damage dealt by the tiles being destroyed on the line would be increased by 30%. Since the power specifies match damage, and not damage in any particular colors, then after this change the match 4 damage should still be increased by 30%, but the other tiles in the row should deal normal damage when destroyed. This is a nerf.

      Lockjaw - This one looks like it's also a nerf. If I'm correct, currently if you make a match 4 that includes a friendly special tile, Lockjaw will resist not only 100% of the damage from the match 4, but all of the damage from the destroyed tiles on the line. After the change, Lockjaw will resist 100% of the damage from the match 4, but still receive damage from the tile destruction.

      Rogue - Once applied, enemy matches in the power's color would deal no damage, and neither would any of the tiles destroyed in the line during a match 4. After this change, the enemy matches still deal no damage, but the tiles in the line destroyed will. Again, this is a nerf.

      I would have bought this bundles if this was a month from now but I'm strapped after the first two.

      The parentheses make it confusing.  

      Take that part out and it makes sense.

      That's correct. Players will receive 18 covers total.

      Thanks @Brigby ; that was a lot more clear on the match-4 changes and not what I would have expected for some of them.

      Just a quick heads up that this new SHIELD pack is more expensive for non-US players. For UK players like myself, £19.99 is nearly $28 for the same pack, whilst players paying €19.99 are paying nearly $25.

      £17.49 for me again. Too expensive meaning no purchase.

      Has anybody else had an issue purchasing the new pack, showing the charge on your card, and not receiving the items??

      They'll fix it right after they fix the side bars on the other devices we got a few patches ago.
