Royal Shield Tiles in Wakanda Event

TaargusTaargus Age Unconfirmed Posts: 4 Just Dropped In
I can't figure out the criteria for the enemy stealing the shield tiles created by the Royal Shield Tiles from the second round of the new Wakanda Event. Does anyone know? Can I steal them back somehow? This is all very confusing.

    So it's different tiles each day?  These exploding tech tiles are kicking my ace in the 5th clear of the 5* essential.  I could get it if i didn't have to worry about eleventy billion exploding tiles doing 10,000 damage to each of my characters

    Yeah it looks like day two's tiles generate shield tiles that "may be stolen by the enemy" but I can't figure out what triggers the tiles being stolen.

    A title generate a shield tile each turn, when it ends, steals all shield tile. I think it's written on the tile, i don't remember where i read it.

    It seems like they're stealing some of them each turn?

    Yeah, tap one of the countdowns, and it will have more explanation. It steals the Protects when one of the countdowns expires. I don't know if they only steal the Protects they created, or if they also steal ones your characters have created. If it's the latter, I'm kind of surprised they didn't make Cage the 3* featured character.

    each countdown gives you a protect tile every turn but if one countdown is allowed to expire, the protect tiles switch to the enemy team. you cannot steal them back.

    very difficult to prevent them all from expiring b/c it seems like you start having 2 expire each turn.  Almost pointless to steal them back b/c the next turn they'd probably be flipped back anyways.  This is an annoying feature

    It is possible to take advantage of it with characters like Squirrel Girl, Medusa, Eddie Brock, and Kraven. But still annoying.

    "Behind the throne" was insane, because not only do all the tiles flip when any one of the counters expires, but then the Sentry Gunner spawns two critical tiles next to them every turn. I was fortunate enough to have enough green for Ares to Onslaught kill in one shot. Otherwise, I was toast for sure.

    The combo of generating so many shield tiles, but flipping all of them when any counter expires, seems like a recipe for frustration. Hopefully the devs take note of that.

    Still better than day 1. By a long shot. 

    Medusa throughly enjoyed the plethora of special tiles. Only node that was challenging was 5E, mainly because of the HP pools and Sentrys red power.

    Captain Marvel 3* if you have 5 red covers, destroys all enemy protect tiles. That would sure be useful, but I only have 1 such cover.

    I haven't tried this myself but someone mentioned Loki's black, which will flip all enemy protects into friendly strikes and enemy strikes to friendly protects. So since you're stealing them and turning them into something that aren't protect tiles, they can't get flipped back.

    The steal AP tiles are hard to deal with also.
    I just wish they would take from both sides, since we are supposedly protecting wakanda, and they only steal from the player not the enemy.

    So much for them being “neutral “
    if they flip to enemy shield and only steal AP from me.

    "Neutral" basically means "not an enemy countdown any more". So if you are fighting someone who benefits from countdowns resolving (C4rol D4nvers comes to mind...) they will no longer benefit from hazard tiles resolving. That's... something at least.

    I've been preaching the benefits of the Loki/4-star Venom for those nodes (In other news, "the benefits of Venom for these nodes" is a phrase you're unlikely to ever hear again!)

    With a whole bunch of enemy shield tiles on the board, they're at 1 pt each with Venom's passive at 5.  When you use Loki's Black (also at 5) suddenly those shield tiles are all strike tiles for you, and they're no longer at 1 point each.  The match ends very, very quickly after that.

    I know, late to the party here.

    4* Electra, Loki, and 4* Iron Fist helped me a lot through that round.

    Electra and Loki stole them back and changed them to Strike tiles preventing them from being stolen back.  Iron Fist on the other hand could convert your Protect tiles to Stike tiles BEFORE they can be stolen in the 1st place.  Considering the cost of his Black without an Accelerant (like Cloak & Dagger), this wasn’t as useful.
