So Just Looking for a Quick Vote on GAC

How many of us are putting Ewoks and Inqs in the front on top and bottom until this bug is fixed?

  • 100% correct to do so, which is awful.
  • is there a bug with Ewoks also? I know about the 2nd sister one
  • 100% correct to do so, which is awful.

    Not sure its 100% correct to do so. Some people (like me) play because they enjoy the competition. SImply winning by any means isn't what everyone is looking for, so for them it probably isn't 100% correct. Other people simply want to win, so for them it may be correct. I don't think its "wrong" to exploit an in-game bug to win, but I don't think everyone will do it either
  • I suppose I meant "correct" from a few perspectives:
    • better for your crystal/GAC division points
    • more people doing it will likely cause CG to actually do something about it sooner rather than later
    • Your opponent may do so, so even if you want to win 'fairly' if your opponent sets them, winning may be impossible for you if you try to 'play fair.'

    It's a known bug, not an exploit. Getting free units, currency, etc would be an exploit. IMHO this is a bug that CG has acknowledged but not yet fixed, nor cancelled GAC, so IMHO any players that have seen it's a bug and causing time outs would be foolish to not set those as defensive teams.

    Would I rather CG cancel and restart the GAC round and/or hotfix it with apologems? Yes. Has that ever happened before when a known bug breaks GAC? No.
  • I already had Ewoks and they were one shot

    I agree with this:

    @WookieWookie
    I also agree with this:

    Although to be honest, I think it will cause some hurt feelings along the way. Personally I'm ambivalent about the strategy. I am thinking about using it, but... I kinda doubt that I will. Not because I'm too noble to use it. As has been pointed out, this is a known bug and it's gonna kill some squads whether we participate in it or not. But also, I don't want to purposely cause frustration for anyone.

    What to do? If I was sure that it would get fixed sooner by using it in my defense, I would use it in a heartbeat. But I am not so sure.

    Again, I don't think its wrong to do so, but it is exploiting a known bug. Its basically the definition of the word "exploit"- using the bug to your advantage (whether unfairly or not). My opponent has set a Reva squad with 2nd Sister, so I'll lose this round. I won't set 2nd sister next round on defense just to try and burn one of the opponent's teams. Winning that way doesn't mean anything to me, its not why I'm playing the game, but I understand not everyone feels the same way, and some would simply prefer to gain the crystals from winning. I don't think either way is right or wrong

    I actually beat a Reva team with 2nd sister because 2nd sister never took a turn (Pheonix+Rex with lvl9 DC).

    I think 2nd sis as a random fill in within a SK team is a greater risk of accidental time outs.
  • I suspect that if you can manage to keep 2nd sister ability blocked when facing her on defense, you should be able to work around the bug. That will be tricky to do with all the taunts, but if you can keep her from using her second special, the bug shouldn't manifest.

    That being said, I think this deserves a very fast fix from CG - one of my guild mates has already lost a GAC round because of it and I'm sure many more will as well.
    F2P since the last time I bought Kyros, Crystals, or the Conquest Pass.
