I have another tale of woe regarding my new favorite unit Master Builder.
For those who don’t know who he is:
See the part where it says “A settlement may have only one Barricade.”
Well… An ally sent me some extra mana this morning, so I decided to put the card to the test.
I tried to build a Barricade at a settlement where I already had a Barricade built. (Sneaky me!)
I clicked to use his ability, the selection appeared, and sure enough, the settlement the Master Builder was at was eligible! I clicked the Settlement, the Mana was spent… and… just like the card says… Only one can be built. So the fortification Bonus remained at +4… and I’m out of 8 Mana. Boooo! hiss Boooo!
Suggestion: There should be a Quality of Life User Experience: when I select a settlement that already has a Barricade built, a popup should inform me that I cannot actually build an additional barricade there and that only one per settlement is allowed. Also, it should not charge me the 8 Mana. (Because technically nothing was built.)
Bonus Suggestion: The word used to describe this ability should be unified. In some places it’s called “Barricade” in other places (Specifically looking at the town’s stats) It’s called “Fortification”. One word should be chosen and used universally to avoid further confusion.
Much Love! This game is great!
