Good afternoon,  so usually I would  post  in your bug section.  This technically isn't a bug.  But I think it could be changed so it doesn't happen.    I do have screenshots.  Its going to be super hard to recreate.  But I will give it a go.  Hope yall can understand that it sounded better in my head. Lol
3 (indestructible supports)  + permanent support matched = perfect storm.  Endless loop
Only thing to so its exit the game.

    I thought they changed color randomly after a match to avoid this. Some permanents dont? That would be funny to see!

    This have been reported numerous times over the years. Sometimes the perfect storm occurs, but not frequently enough for the devs. to fix the fundamental problem.

    The permanent support functionality needs to be replaced by something different. My suggestion would be to do something like the new passive ability which has the alignment thing on the latest PW. Perhaps the event could assign a temporary passive ability to a PW when starting a match.

    My suggestion would be to get rid of event permanent supports. We can play without them

    They should in the screenshots I have it didn't.  Just an endless gain of mana.

    I have seen permanent/indestructible supports not changing color recently.  Luckily for me,  the two other were normal supports..

    Happen to me on last Skoti Bloodline, 3 resilient Skyclave Relics line up and didn't change color, just stay there forever.

    @Oktagon_Support this still happens in atv you have three permanent supports that could line up if the board is moved

    Controlling the board so the indestructible supports don't line up is just an advance puzzle.

    Sorry, can't find the video anymore.
    To be more specific however, it was not only 3 WCs lining up, but at the same time I used either Riskhars Expertise or Hour to convert a ton of gems. This caused the 3 WC supports to 'hang in the air' together and continuously match, without pausing to change color. Effectively locking up the game

    I have reported this issue maybe twice. Is it possible to merge those in here?

    You might be able to post links to those posts in this one to work on consolidating them, though if the info of them is pretty much the same then there might be some redundancy.

    But redundancy ain't always bad. Any feedback from moderators?
