Doppleganger - Unintended Consequence or Bug?

Postby cashless » Sat Mar 25, 2017 1:52 am

Just played a game tonight against 210. I had control for quite a bit of time, while he was hammering away with large units. The dust settled near the end of the game and the following happened.

Turn 12(made up number): Doppleganger moved next to my stronghold. Carve the Skin applied. Doppleganger now has 6 power, slow attack. I've done nothing else to it, and neither has he.
Turn 13: I only had two cards, but fortunately I have a magician on the field and a "trump card," or so I thought. I bring back a Bramin Engineer into my hand (after getting the resources of course) and start my last defense. I had 55 dominance points. Then I make a mistake, but the game lets me get away with it.
- Underworld Charger, activated it's power (4 power, fast attack, does not conquer), and attacked Doppleganger. -4 Power!
- Bramin Engineer attacks, takes no damage and the threat is gone!

"Why did my Doppleganger not get fast attack?" 210 asks?!?

Oh, you're right. (I just made a "rookie mistake)
I don't know, that's weird. Must be because of the Slow attack, the game thought it already got a power?

Reading the card, it should have added both the fast attack and the does not conquer, which means I would have been able to still win based on the control I had. (I figured that out a few minutes later) But while I can add Carve the Skin to Void and not mess up it's ability, it appears Doppleganger may have it's ability taken away by this effect. Makes me wonder what else neutralizes it.

I understand the likely problem. Doppleganger can't keep taking abilities (like the show Heroes in the US) from every card I'm guessing, it's just supposed to take the first one. But in this situation it should still be able to take the ability that I was gifting my opponent, and instead he got shafted. Until I/we figured out I was still going to accidentally win due to the does not conquer part...if that additional piece came along with.

Doppelganger only gets the ability if it itself attacks.

Ahh, of course. Thank you. I don't really use it.

Yes I remember situation. I was confused too but after few days realised ability is trigered only if dopelganger itself attacks (which is different than from before update)

Interesting note: the doppleganger ability activates at the START of combat. I had a situation where the additional bonus of gnome hero that i was attacking was the only reason my doppler won the fight!
