Vanishing Mercs

Post by gary » Sat Apr 29, 2017 2:36 pm

I dont know if this is a bug.

I dont know if this is a rule in the game.

I dont know if this is by design by the designer.

But twice now I have gone in to a realm battle with a merc.

Twice now it has gone the distance due to the AI getting the rolls when it should have died.

Twice the merc I entered the fight with is still alive and loyal and by my side.

Twice now that means they have ended in draws.

Twice now I have gone straight back in to the fight

And twice now I enter that fight alone with my merc having vanished.

It was a DRAW, the merc was ALIVE, why am I losing it?

Does seem odd, I always thought the merc carried over as long it was alive.. just trying to think back, I can't remember if I've noticed this before.

Perhaps a draw is regarded as a loss, not sure why that means the merc vanishes though.. it refuses to do overtime?

I pay them enough to stick around and they know they will well rewarded

sick of this one,

why is a hard fought draw costing you your mercs even though they are alive at the end of the fight?????

In the forthcoming update, mercs will no longer disappear if you draw versus your opponent.

Also fixing it so that, if you are an ally in a realm and your "summoner" surrenders, your stats won't take a hit.
