Shuffle Board Bug

Today I was fighting a titan and my board was shuffled because there were no more possible tile matches. However, I had 2 shields (don’t know how to call them, I’m referring to the special tiles coming out of matches of 4 tiles), so I guess the board should not be shuffled since I could explode them.
Irrelevant (maybe) note: guess I noticed that because I purposely created the special tiles on top of the titan weak spot, but they moved away after the shuffling, so I was pretty irritated by this thing…

For the reshuffling mechanic shields and diamonds don’t count, still not able to create a normal match without blowing them up and to me that’s a good thing. If I’ve created a diamond for a slow character and there’s only 6 more including the diamond of that color on the board I wouldn’t want to be forced to use it.

@Shenjairo ,
I do not agree for several reasons.
First of all, being forced to do something you would not do otherwise (like exploding the diamond you mentioned in your example) because the board sucks is part of the game. I can’t count how many times I matched 3 blue tiles on Kashhrek allowing him to heal himself because there was nothing else I could do, this is part of match-3 games mechanics, and I got over it a lot of time ago: if the board sucks you suck too, that’s life.
I think it is less compliant to the game mechanics and philosophy creating a shield in a strategic location and not being able to use it because automatic reshuffle puts it somewhere else, even if you could make it blow exactly where you wanted it to explode.
Finally, again in relation to your example, the diamond you want to save for a later use could still explode immediately after reshuffle because it is randomly placed next to 2 other tiles of the same color, so reshuffle doesn’t seem to me the best way to preserve your strategic plan.

We seem to disagree on this issue but since it’s a feature and not a bug it should probably belong in the Ideas and feature requests category.

Actually it is not my intention to change the developers mind on this matter if this the way they want it to work. I did think it was a bug and that’s why I put the post here, but if, as you say, this is a feature and not a bug that’s ok for me, at least now I know this rule I was unaware of

This looks like a bug, shuffling is for when there are no actions possible, but blowing tiles is an action.

I agree that this should be considered a bug. I’ve yet to encounter it but I know that the spring event (with the exploding eggs) brought some problems to the game where after no matches, shields or diamonds were available the board would still not reshuffle… It’s possible that in correcting this, the reshuffle mechanic broke and does so too often now.
