Just tried using him in the new pve event and his blue won't target any enemy countdown tiles. I had 9 blues saved up and nothing. Thanks

    Same here. I've tried him in combination with multiple other characters and hoarded as much blue as I could. Redwing never never fired.

    First, make sure Redwing is rank 5. But not surprised it's broken. Unless Thanos had purple out.

    yes same issue for me when doing TBE with Falcon - 5 Blue collected and he wasnt even clearing strike tiles let alone countdowns

    It's a bug, Redwing is not activating.
    Even during TBE vs goons it's not firing off at all with 5+ blue AP.
    His new purple is nice though, but...

    Hey Everyone. I've gone ahead and reached out to the developers about Falcon's Redwing ability. I'll update this post once I hear back from them. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Has anyone else noticed issues with Redwing triggering since this update? As in, it hasn't triggered once for me today despite me having sufficient blue AP and there being valid target tiles on the board.

    Yet another case of tiny kitty poor testing! I utilize this character almost exclusively on goon nodes, specifically for his blue passive! He's useless without it!!! How do you guys manage to introduce a new bug (in existing functionality) every single release??!?!? This is why I continue to give one star reviews for this game. The level of bugs is inexcusable!!!

    Yeah, redwing isn't activating at all. Come on guys. You're better than this.

    I guess Redwing wasn't happy about not being able to go over and hum... play with the enemy Redwing, after the skill change, so he decided that if Redwing ain't working, Redwing ain't working. Or maybe he's just mad the Falcons lost the big game. icon_cry.gif

    I hope he's fixed soon, as I use him every day in the Big Enchilada, and on most easy/normal nodes in PvE.

    Perfect, just perfect.
  • Came here to post the same thing. Disappointing.

    Because he won't work for anything else, I'm wondering if he mistakenly only targets other Redwing tiles now... In any case, hopefully a fix is quick because 4* Carol, 3* Falcon and 3* Blade is my new favorite anti-goon team.

    How can a patch affecting only 2 characters get released without a dev actually testing 6 powers just once? That would be 3 minutes of play, saving us to wait 2 weeks for a fix.

    Was just in a match against 2* Bullseye with Sam Wilson (Falcon). The Redwing power no longer fires against Bullseye's Protect Tiles so that makes the one thing he's good for now useless.

    And you had 5 blue? Then it's an unfortunate bug. I like Falcon.

    That would suck but wouldn't surprise me given the devs recent track record for QAM

    Indeed it is utterly ridiculous that even basic sanity level testing has clearly not taken place on this release, it is bad enough when less connected stuff gets broken and not caught before being released, but it is inexcusable for the basic functionality of one of the characters being changed was broken by this release.

    Did the test plan for this release consist of, does the app load and has the text for the powers been changed or something?

    Tested and replicated results here. Used 3* Falcon on the enchilada. Redwing was very broken, not triggering for strikes, attacks, countdowns. I had enough blue for three out of the four waves.
