The part I agree with: this is NOT resolved. But I think it’s as resolved as it can be unless you can provide more evidence. Especially since a credible explanation has been proferred.
The part I DISagree with: the Delay talent proc-ing DOES explain how 3 tiles of mana was blocked. You say you made three matches of three green tiles. Evelyn takes 8 to charge and we can all see she’s shy - probably by two. So I agree with you that she appears to be missing three tiles of mana.
Here’s what I think happened:
- You made a green match of three tiles
- Thoth-Amun hit Evelyn, and Delay proc-ed
- You made the two subsequent green matches while Evelyn had the Delay status ailment.
The Delay talent gives a chance to drop mana generation by 50%. So you would have received 50% of the second and third matches of green tiles. Three tiles of mana from the first match, 1.5 tiles from the second (1.5 lost to Delay), 1.5 from the third (1.5 lost to Delay). Total of 6 tiles of mana, 3 lost to Delay.
Again, I disagree with you that Delay doesn’t explain it. I think Delay explains this situation very well, so well that I would suggest marking this as resolved and close the thread.
