I was using my dear Athena on map, season 2 hard mode. Monsters are quite sturdy and do not die easily.
So i used her defence debuff that hit three and move the board.
When i look at monsters only 2 has the defence debuff even if all 3 receive the special. (not using Wu kong and not blinded). Just why?
The reason was really simple: that monster was gonna die that turn, so the system doesn’t bother to show the status icon.
No problem, if it wasn’t that it was a very long combo, something like 15 matches and only the ending match killing him.
So the system already know all the combos until the end just from the first move, even if you have 30 combos.
