I haven't had that happen on the first turn but I have had the ai use abilities they don't have enough ap for
Soooo I don't know if this has happened to any one else but it literally just happened to me and it'll totally sound made up but you'll just have to take my word for it.
On turn one I got an L shape resulting in an extra turn, with the critical tile in play I got a row of 5 resulting in another extra turn, followed by a regular 3 match. Immediately following my turn the enemy OBW used AR. -8 purple AP. Which sounds absolutely impossible since they AI had not even taken a full turn yet. So I'm more astonished than anything really lol. Has anything like this ever happened to anyone else?
I can't say for sure if this is what you are seeing but... when the AI gets cascades their AP doesn't update until their turn is completely over. So if a low level cMags uses Red (cost 4) and it results in a red match (plus 3) at the end of the turn it will look like he spent only 1 AP. But you won't see the intermediate step where he lost the 4 AP. What you will see during cascades is that even though the AP indicator doesn't change, abilities that the AI can use do light up. So you can see Thor trigger his Yellow then suddenly get Call the Storm even though his AP only shows 12 because a green match happened.
This character needs to be nerfed. Period. It's ridiculous that I have to target this "flimsy" 2* over any other 3*. A bad cascade (defined as 2 or 3 purple matches or 4-/5- that let opponents have 8~11 purple AP) would let her to use AR to steal my AP, those boost AP that I buy with ISO, as well as fuel other char so fast the next 2 turns will see my team heavily injured or dead. In what universe would a 2* take precedence over any other 3*/4*? Pls increase the AR cost or something!
TL;DR (just in case), char is too OP for a 2*. Nerf pls.
It really says a lot when playing with a 2-star version of a character is vastly more effective than playing a maxed-out 3-star of the same character.
You guys keep on talking about using OBW for heal - I've moved on to *** and use Patch whenever possible, and am levelling Lazy Daken now. Don't get stuck in ** land. Use the tactics posted by other forum members on how to deal with OBW.
Cascades can happen anytime with any characters. You complain about a cascade giving lots of purple AP to OBW. Wait til you have one that gives purple AP to CMags. Then you'll cry your heart out.
I used to run OBW/Thor/CStorm last time before changing to OBW/Thor/Punisher then OBW/Lazy Thor/Punisher and now Lazy Thor/Patch/CMags. The way the game works is that you have to figure out which characters suit your play style, and when it comes to PVP matches always try to make sure you have the featured character levelled as high as possible to take the match damage so that you use health packs on possibly one hero only.
