I recently got stuck in a loop where an enemy (it was a Gimp Mummy, though I don’t think it matters) was constantly attacking my provoking tank (a Stronghold). There were the messages “The Gimp Mummy attacks!” followed by either something like “It did X damage.” or something like “You Stronghold dodged.” And then the enemy would start attacking again, my creatures unable to do anything.
The fact that my Nature dodge-and-recover perk was maxed out basically made the fight impossible to end since every time the perk procced, my Stronghold would heal for a fair amount (i.e. to full health because the enemy wasn’t hitting strong enough).
So here comes my suggestion: there should be a key which, when pressed, automatically makes you flee or forfeit the battle. (A combination of keys would be better, something that would be hard to do accidentally, like LShift + RCtrl + F.) That would create a workaround for this issue. It would be annoying if this happened in the Arena or on Daily Realms, but it would be better than being stuck.
In the end, I had to force-close the game. (Alt + F4 didn’t even work, what the hell?)
I searched the forums before posting but I didn’t find any such occurrences. There’s only one post mentioning a loop (on the TouchArcade thread), but it was just due to luck (resurrecting Lich Overseers) and not due to a bug.
I could have posted it in the Bugs section but since I had a suggestion to go with it, I decided to post it there, instead. Hope it’s fine, and hope if it’s accepted that it will ship with the Quality-of-Life update.
