[PC/Windows] Hex Highlights Improperly On Stealthed Character
« on: September 13, 2014, 02:55:04 AM »
Build: 0.1.35

Platform: PC/Windows 7

Description: During the day, while playing Thane, Mercurio moved next to my character in a forest. Night fell, stealthing him and rendering him invisible. On my turn, even though Mercurio was stealthed and invisible, the hex he was on was still highlighted orange, revealing his position. Moving into his hex initiated combat as usual.

Repro steps: start your turn next to a stealthed hero. I haven't tested yet if moving next to a stealthed hero reproduces this result.

Attachments: three pictures of the process

Can confirm that I found this too. Even from across the map the cursor turns into an attack cursor over a stealth character so you can see where people are hiding.

Doesn't help that the camera will also follow a stealthed character's movement.

:P I've seen it happening all the time. It just never occurred to me that it'd be a serious problem until I realized this is a multiplayer game XD

Also, yes, moving next to a stealth hero does highlight the hex. I've done it a few times.

Are there any bonuses for ambushing a hero FROM stealth or when a hero moves into a stealthed hex?

The hero that gets ambushed is unable to burn cards for that battle.
According to long lost articles about the development of the game, the original working title for Armello was actually Murphy's Law: The Digital Board Game.*
