I’m not sure if I’m just running into a horrible string of bad luck here, but at least three times now I’ve gotten into battles that I lose before I can even command my creatures.
I’ve been losing a lot lately (made the mistake of finishing all the breeding quests at once, so now the entire world is filled with mega-strong monsters), but I can remember at least three times I’ve lost before even being able to attack:
- A battle against a bunch of different Imlings. One of them got the first move, and they endlessly attacked until I died. One of them kept using a move that put the entire enemy team’s turns in first place, so my creatures’ turns were constantly skipped. Never got to attack.
- Another battle with Imlings. Same deal, except there was no spell that changed the turns around–one of them (a diamond imling, I think) just kept using spells repeatedly until it killed my entire team.
- A battle with a Vicious Worpeltinger in the enemy team. It attacked first, and its attack never ended–it just kept performing multiple spells until it killed my entire team.
I can understand a bit when I run into a pack of diabolic hordes or a pack of hunters, whose abilities build off each other, making them obscenely strong. I at least get the CHANCE to attack before they murder me. But with these things, I never even get a turn–I instantly lose the battle.
Am I just getting really rotten luck, or is something weird going on here? And if it IS rotten luck and the game’s running as it should, is there any way I can counter this?
