December 2014 X-Bow glitch for Ground Mode
This X-Bow glitch came into the game with the December 2014 Christmas Update – that’s for sure. I expect that the Multi-Layout Feature is responsible for this because I expect that to not save the modes of some buildings correctly. But why is this glitch so dangerous and what does it exactly do? First of all it can make you attack bases with inside 3 X-Bows set to ground mode with your Balloons and soon after you started you will see that your raid will go down because there is quite a lot additional damage dealt to your troops.
This is pretty bad but it becomes worst. Just the fact that watching the base before you attack will give you wrong information and you can loose a whole attack but what if I tell you that this is not only a graphical problem but the X-Bow is actually set to Ground Mode? Here is my evidence from a raid:
The X-Bow is clearly set on Ground Mode (from scouting) but it shoots at the Balloons. When visiting the base I found out that the X-Bow in fact is set to Ground Mode so it shouldn’t even shoot at the troops so we have a huge problem here for all of us loving Balloon compositions.
As far as I know Supercell hasn’t commented on this even the X-Bow glitch has been out there for about 2 weeks now. I hope they will make a hotfix for this because this really makes attacks wasted and I can recommend you to maybe switch your composition until this is fixed.
What’s happening next with the X-Bow glitch?
Supercell reported they are aware of this bug/glitch and will find a solution as soon as possible. The problem is that they haven’t pushed a Hotfix Update so far so you can assume there won’t be one until the next Content Update. Sad but true. It’s very likely that this will get fixed in the January / February 2015 Update.
