Problems With Guardian Army Spell


Recommended Posts

I set up a ritual with

2 rustgolds
1 max ele
and 3 angiens

and gave the spell to dormouse (to attack someone that was bullying her) and

instead

2 trees
2 birds
1 rusty
and 1 lifestealercame up..

I did set the ritual i wanted to use on defense.

I'm not entirely sure if a topic like this has already been posted. ehh...

Yesterday, the spell was casted on me twice and once on AmberRune by an mp4.

When fighting others, the rituals were still on random, but what was even weirder was when attacking AmberRune with it while we both were under the effect of the spell I won with her ritual. Will add a screenshot once I try it again.

[log='Spell description from Wish Shop']Guardian Army Spell
Allows you to use your army to guard an other character for a limited time. When that character will be attacked, the attacker will fight you instead. Good for roleplay but but also for practical use. It might have unexplored results under special situations. It will grant 4 casts, regenerable every two weeks, or increase maximum cast number by 4 if you allready have the spell. [/log]

[log='Present case']

- attacker: Asthir

- defender: Antyvas

[log='First problem']The slider has no value; it must be moved before it can be set at 0%.

[log='Second problem']Fight log does not match Wish Shop description.

 

As stated, I'm the attacker = player in the lower half. Antyvas is the defender = player in the top half. As per Wish Shop description, "when that character will be attacked, the attacker will fight you instead". Basically, I should have been attacking the caster's creatures. Instead, I - the attacker - was replaced by the caster.

[log='Third problem']Attacker is switched with defender in the entire log.

 

The numbers are displayed correctly: attacker = 0% loss and defender = 100% loss; however, the creatures and the "Sheath Balance" result in this image belong to Antyvas - I'm looking at the Summary from mixed perspectives: numbers = attacker's perspective; result+creatures = defender's perspective.

The same will happen if only the attacker is under the effect of GA.

Will update later regarding how it affects defender.

Let me add to that a bit, more formally. A fourth problem (in my opinion the worst) is that guardianarmy uses a random set of the caster's creatures, regardless of the caster's rituals set.

 

There was a time, long ago (years), in which it at least used the caster's def rit for the castee to attack with. In other words, when I first tested "attacking myself" at that time, I got the same ritual on top and on bottom. The change to random was unnanounced anywhere as far as I can tell, so it was surely something breaking.

 

 

TL;DR: No, it is not meant to be a random rit.

 

 

Example of current action:

[spoiler]

[/spoiler]

 

As we can see here, one of the mp5's attacked me while I had cast GA on them. On top is my defense as the defender, on the bottom is the randomly-assigned GA that is attacking me. By the way, the logs I get from GA attacks are always counted as an OUT, and this particular one is a victory, if you're curious.

Guardianarmy always seemed straightforward to me while I was using it, cast on people and they will fight/defend with a random rit of yours. I don't know if it's intended to be random but I've never been inclined to think it wasn't and never had a problem with it (made it a bit more fun).

 

As far as attacker vs defender goes, removing the possibility for a person with it cast on him to use the caster's rituals in an attack would probably be more convenient for the attacker but would limit the use of the spell to a large degree. As in, If you cast on someone else you don't know if they will be attacked or not, and others can simply choose not to. The extra use of say, a weaker player, using your army to fight I think is a good reason to justify having that feature in the spell. And besides, convenient or not to the attacker, not all spells are made to be "convenient" anyways.
