Beat Here Comes the Flood, Can't Continue


Best Answer Longshot11 , 29 May 2016 - 04:23 PM

In the first game, I closed no locations, and the game ended by magga eating the last card from the board.
In the second game, I encountered the last card myself to trigger the end.

Not sure if this helps anyone or not

I believe Faranim nailed it. I'd recommend if someone is still stuck on HCtF - try to manipulate the game, so it is your character who encounters the last location deck card in the game, as opposed to letting Black Magga eat it.

Solution confirmed. My party of Lem and Valeros were stuck at HCtF after defeating it twice.  After reading this thread, I played it again, got 7/12 allies, and made sure Lem encountered the last card in the game. Victory, and unlocked 3-4.

Good job.

Adding my voice to this. On a Samsung S6 but it looks fairly widespread. First attempt I lost the scenario, second attempt I won, got 100 gold, got all the allies, can't advance or do the next difficulty mode. Played with Valeros, Merisiel and Kyra.

 

If it matters I moved Valeros from another party (at the same stage) prior to beginning Hook Mountain.

Same here. I actually have 3 parties:

- one competes the game on basic difficulty (2 characters: Merisel+Kyra)

- one on heroic (5 characters: Lem, Seoni, Kyra, Seelah, Harsk)

- one on legendary (4 characters)

 

With the fist party (Basic rules) when I completed the Flood I was able to proceed (I failed on the first try, but after winning on the next try it was OK and I already finished the adventure with this party).

 

With the second party (Heroic level) I just saved 10 allies and failed to acquire a couple, went to the victory screen, collected the reward (allies saved during Flood), but cannot proceed :(

 

With the third party I haven't started the adventure yet..

There are 24 allies, so you need to at least acquire 13 allies to advance, or prevent Magga from eating at most 12 of them by encountering and failing to acquire allies.

 

Some minor corrections: There are 24 allies if and only if you play with a group of 6 characters. Less characters means less locations means less allies on the map, e.g. just 18 for 4 players. Also if you read the fine print in the win condition, it is sufficient to get half of the allies to win, not half+1. So 12 allies out of 24 is a win.

Here comes the flood has on specific progression break.    It took me a while to figure out the scenario strategy, so I tried several things.  This break happened many times.

 

In the Store....

I often had a break when the store was emptied by the monster and my toon would close.  the die for the item rewards would roll, then the card image would very quickly fly off the right hand of the screen.  The background within the store would go black... meaning I still could see the store character and some other peripheral images.   All I could do from here was either quit or forfeit.  I have now figured out how to beat the scenario and am trying to complete it by having my toons finish the store and close it before the dragon.  It is such a specific ending that I have not done it yet.

It also looks like it's counting allies wrong.  In 4 Players, there are 3+2+2+1+1+0 Allies from locations, and then 6 from the scenario setup, which should be 15, but the Counter says 18.  I'm wondering if that's part of the problem, but not sure.  I only have 4 person parties, but does any other combination have the wrong counter?

No problems in here comes the Flood. Did not close anything, dig get 10 allies and did win the scenario and it was marked done as Legendary mode.
The last scenario was again real pain... Allmost everytime the was scenariopowers that caused bury card effect and trickers that D4 damage to everyone. Was really hoping not to see easy to accuire blessings... Blessing of god, my eyes Are fixed on you! You did destroy at least three runs for the wictory!
Barrier that summons hensmans Are Also bad, but at least They Are not a bug and can be avoided via using augury and spy classes and similar items. Pack a lot of armours and damage preventing items when going against the last challenge in the legendary mode!

Is everyone posting here realizing that Faranim and Longshot figured out the workaround for the "I won but can't play the next scenario" bug?  Read the thread.

I just had exactly the same bug. And at that point I had 13 allies rescued out of 21 :(  But still I doubt the game would've let me on to the next scenario. Oh please fix the Flood for us!

Here's the bug:
If the scenario ends because black magga ate the last card from the board, then your party doesn't get credit for completing the scenario, but the individual characters still get credit and you still get the rewards (keeping the allies you saved)

The other kind of weird behavior is:
If all the characters in your party already (individually) completed the scenario, you won't get to keep the allies you found at the end of the mission.

That's normal; the allies are the "scenario reward" in this case, and you only get those rewards once per character.

Yeah, I always found that weird. All in all, your 'reward' is something you've already earned during the game. I would understand it if there was bonus to acquiring allies, but as it is, the scenario could as well say "When you acquire an ally, bury it. At the end, you get no reward."

If you get the victory message and can't advance, I found that reforming the party allowed me to continue to the next.

I agree. Doing this allowed me to get past HCtF on my second victory.
