I know that with the Arena update Alphas didn’t get the attention necessary, and thus, some problems are yet to be resolved.
Alpha stealing moves
It’s become a tradition to lose at least the last move to an Alpha, sometimes even more. Perhaps some action was taken by the devs but… not enough. Happens still. Often.
Alpha battle stealing energy.
Battling 1 Alpha and it getting messed with the next…
Happens once a month to me, but it’s happened to a clanmate some days ago. And another just moments ago (tonight). So, yeah, still an issue.
Just when is going this species to get a fix? It’s the buggest Alpha and no one bats an eye. It eats our special tiles, had even developed an ability to root in place 2-3 in one go… Well, now it also targets neighboring tiles we could use to unblock the specials. And the roots… Oh, they still grow in 3x speed and we can’t do anything about it making us spend junk moves of 3 matches we don’t need as we get out of options, then stay back and watch as the board resets… Only for the Alpha to receive no damage.
It doesn’t release a too strong blast anymore. There haven’t been other cases of fired our teams out in 1-3 blasts of glistening fire. Ballistas work ok for me as well.
I don’t know, though, if that had got to do with the level of Shelly we were fighting. I mean, the issues I mentioned in the previous statement was about 7-star Shelly, and then… we moved up and the issue stopped occurring for us.
- Screaming Death
This Alpha doesn’t get damage from its own bombs when we use a special tile to force them on top. Bomb doesn’t explode at all.
I still get the battle failing to continue loading at “Hitching Hackamores” and have to restart.
Clan disconnecting, everyone appearing as “NewName#000” and with 0000 Alpha points where thousands would be, Alpha disappearing as well.
Something must be done about these as well as some Arena fixing up. They’re not less important.
