I just experienced the weirdest night. The matchmaking was horrifically out of balance after the game went wonky and the whole zero health but still standing issue occurred.
After rebooting the game several times, my plucky team of little boosts and no uniques (yet) was suddenly pitted against teams multiple levels above mine with lots of boosts. Trust me, no amount of strategy would’ve conquered teams like this with a team like mine. I’ve only been playing since February of this year without paying, so it takes time to build up a team…
So, anyways, then I was placed against a team that was acting like an AI, even though it wasn’t supposed to be one (match didn’t time out). The “person” I was playing against should’ve kicked my rear with a team like theirs, but instead this opponent swapped their last two creature in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out - they weren’t cornered, and my creature could’ve easily been trounced by theirs.
That’s when it dawned on me - some of the other teams that I’d been facing earlier after the bug were VERY similar to the AI teams from a the update before the most recent one.
Is the game accidentally placing me against an AI that’s overpowering my team, causing me to lose nearly 200 trophies in a sitting, and making it near impossible to get a battle incubator? Or was the matchmaking glitching?
Anyways, I can’t remember if I rebooted the game again or not, but suddenly I’m being matched with teams closer to mine…
It was very odd.
Also, recently the map has been buggy. A creature will appear suddenly, then the minute I go to dart it, it disappears just as suddenly as it appeared. This has happened multiple times on multiple occasions. I think this is a bug, too, especially when the same creature will follow me and disappear for a bit.
I also had a match “time out” in the tournament. It was an epic battle - lasted at least 10 or more minutes. I was finally going to win, and then the game said I wasn’t active so it stopped the match. Needles to say… it was very painful after battling so hard . Does the game time out matches if they take to long? I’ve never heard of this before…
Anyways, hopefully this will be fixed in the next patch.
Thanks so much!
