View Full Version : Survival of the Fittest + Troop with Gem SwiftStrike bugged

05-01-2014, 05:36 PM
Had Nelebrin Skirmisher with a SwiftStrike gem and both Wild Magic and Diamond thresholds. Used Survival of the Fittest on Nelebrin and enemy champion's Worker Bot and result was, Nelebrin died due to Survival of the Fittest. Why??

Not sure that's actually a bug. Those battle another troop effects may not take keywords into account, e.g. I know for sure Flight is irrelevant. They're pure ATK vs. DEF.

A "battle" is not "combat" and therefore Swiftstrike does not apply. It is the same as the Fight mechanic in MTG.

I see, well if this is by design it would be nice for a side widow to show that description of abilities not being accounted for when you zoom in (like abilities description show on the side of the card when you zoom in).

did the worker bot not die? if not it is a bug

Battle a Troop means: "Both troops deal their attack value to the other one" this is not combat damage, therefor swiftstrike, crush, rage, etc is not applied. you could also kill a flock of seagulls with a battle.

effects that relate to damage still apply, like "double damage", lifedrain, invincible, ...
