Enemy Gains TM When Vader is Merciless

What type of device are you experiencing the issue with? iPhone XS
OS Version 13.5.1
Ally Code: (Find it here: http://bit.ly/AllyCode ) 168825684
What type of issue do you have? Gameplay
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Summarize your bug When Merciless is activated, enemies are able to gain TM due to their uniques. For example, when Vader uses Merciless and attacks a separatist droid on a GG team, the enemy B2's relentless barrage activates and the enemy B2 gains 100% TM. This contradicts the SWGOH Forum post stating "While Merciless, Darth Vader is immune to Fear and Turn Meter manipulation, and his bonus turns do not trigger other characters' effects based on bonus turns or Turn Meter gain."
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have Vader use Merciless Massacre against a team comprised of GG B2 B1 Magna and Nute. Use his basic, aoe, or culling blade against GG b1 Magna or Nute. B2 will gain TM from his unique (see attached video)

In the video, here is where the bug occurs:

0:11 - Vader uses aoe targeting droideka, B2 gains Tm (4:48 left in battle)

Hi all and thank you for the reports and input.

 

As @Bulldog1205 said, B2's turn-meter isn't based on bonus turns or turn-meter gain, it is based on the damage and therefore this doesn't appear to be a bug.

 

As for the missing part of the text in the full ability description, we have flagged this for review now.

I have seen this same bug pop up in numerous places. Let's crush it before we get too far into his rework.

You can see this is supposed to be added on the final tier (text on left column) but it doesnt appear in the final ability description (text on right column)

I have had this happen with Jedi Knight Anakin taking a bonus turns too.

I’m not sure that’s what it means though. The text says it doesn’t trigger turn meter “based on bonus turns or TM gain”. B2’s turn meter isn’t based on bonus turns or TM gain, it’s based on damage. Same with Anakin, it’s based on ally health.

What you are saying and what was said by Crumb on the forums contradicts one another:

His bonus turns do not trigger other characters' effects based on bonus turns or Turn Meter gain so, yes that would prevent other characters from taking a turn in the middle of his rampage. Counter attacks can still happen though”

That answer was in reply to a question about Palp lead (debuff based) and JKA/Padme (damage based). According to Crumv, tm gain shouldn’t happen then but it does.

Here’s an example of the ability not working on a turn-based tm mechanic (from the same video). Droideka gains TM despite merciless being activated.

Easy answer is crumb's post was inaccurate, happens many times unfortunately.

Even if thats true, Droideka should not be gaining TM
