    Was this intended ?
    It's a known oddity about the second-chance mechanic. If it's not 100% to attack again, the system will roll the chance independently for each target, which means that the second attack may end up not always attacking all.

      Thank you for this condescending piece of feedback. And actually, we did learn, which is why we took the risk of altering Advisor Cullen's power to be lower than originally was - except no one seemed to notice King Alistair ended up being so massively powerful because we stuck to our guns of "we won't revamp with a lower power", and so his power level is well outside of the actual guidelines we are aiming for. Community feedback about the hero led us to rethink that policy, which we exhibited with the Advisor Cullen revamp.

      Funny how in the long run, KA didn't end up being as much of a "mess" as people initially claimed it to be. Or any of the other things that people jumped out of the gate saying "omg this is too OP and now everything is dramatically broken".

      Different revamps are going to have different effects on the game. I've already been hearing about people using Red Lyrium as reliable counters to the Advisors under the right setups, so maybe there's something here you're missing.

      Our goal isn't to release a game-changing hero every time we release heroes, because that would just lead us right back to the insane power creep that we're finally bringing under control. This means some older heroes get to shine again, and from time to time something new does come along that turns everything on its head again.

          Love your user name Welcome to the forums!

          It's not typically toxic around here, I think tensions are just a little high at the moment, which is pretty normal following a major client release as people settle into a new paradigm.

            Thank you this is exactly what i was thinking. Keep up the great work.

              The only thing I didn't like about the KA revamp is the same thing I don't like about the Inquisition revamp, (and maybe part of what's bothering Coldbayne?)....It made PG and PVPs very stale as far as squad diversity.

              We just went from finally having variations like Demon squads, KAs, LSC w/ RJS/VV, Dwarves, Ashas, SSMs etc. and more, to AC/Josie/Josie/AC/Josie/AC/AC/Josie. As much as I like the revamps, until the next thing comes out that can rival good Inquisition setups in a D slot, we'll be looking at more of the same redundancy we experienced with Kitty, Bart and KA.

              I blame the player base that leaves AC/Josie in their #1 slot for every PVP, regardless of bonus, for the added lack of diversity. CG doesn't set up our D slots for us. ;-)

              As far as Red Lyrium, I think the revamps are really solid. While they may not rival current inquisition meta, they are now a much improved group with a variety of abilities to work from. I think there are some really nice uses for RL outside of their group even. We probably won't be seeing many if any RL teams in PG, but I'm sure some will be doing work in the background.

                Testing suggests more than one Advisor's counter, and more than 3 or 4 using prestige runes proper testing is essential.

                  It would be nice to have a way to acquire the newly revised heroes in a predictable manner soon after their revamp.
                  At least in the next week or two, to allow those that already have the heroes built get a slight advantage for a bit.
                  I'm guessing Advisors as a top PvP reward would drive banner count/gem spend....
                  I know I would compete for a second AC.

                    Well, you can get all the recently revamped Heroes by buying CP/GCP.

                      I was thinking more for dupes... Specifically for Josie and AC.
                      Having the top rated, newly revamped heroes in PvP would get a lot of peoples attention.

                        if you spend a lot of time in Metas trying to get Advisor Leliana to drop, you just might end up with 8+ AC, from my experience at least ;-)

                        If you are really lucky, Josie will drop from 1500 gold hero packs. Typically when you aren't looking for her though of course.

                          Yup, Ive started running Metas again up to the Advisors level for that reason!

                            Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.

The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted.

                            Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                            Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.

                            What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                            It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                            To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                            What happens if I break the rules?
                            At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                            Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                            For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                            Posting Suggestions
                            In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                            1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                            2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                            3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                            4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                            5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                            6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                            7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                            In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                            EA TOS English
                            EA TOS French
                            EA TOS German
                            EA TOS Russian
                            EA TOS Spanish

                            By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
