HK-47's Loyalty to the Maker not functioning as described.

Summarize your bug HK-47's ability, Loyalty to the Maker, does not function as described. It both allows turn meter gain and allows him to be critically hit when he should have enough critical avoidance to cancel out the enemy's critical chance.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use the team Darth Revan, HK-47, Bastila Shan (fallen), BB-8 and R2-D2 against Jedi Knight Revan, Jolee, Bastila, General Kenobi and Grand Master Yoda (all at G12, with all the appropriate abilities maxed out, and similar mods on both teams, not to exceed 50% critical chance for Grand Master Yoda). Use R2-D2's smokescreen on HK-47, and Jedi Knight Revan will mark him, call his entire team to assist. Yoda will then generaly use battle meditation (which will give him turn meter), followed by masterstroke (which will also give him turn meter), followed by Unstoppable force (which may score a critical hit).

HK-47's ability, Loyalty to the Maker, does not function as described. In a team with Darth Revan as the lead, the opposing team's Grand Master Yoda is able to both gain turn meter and score critical hits in situations that should be prevented, as the ability reads. First off, for the turn meter, the Zeta reads "enemies with protection up can't gain bonus turn meter". Grand Master Yoda, upon using Battle Meditation, grants his entire team protection up for 2 turns, then gains a significant amount of turn meter (which should be prevented with HK's Zeta). He also isn't prevented from gaining his bonus turn (100% turn meter) when he uses masterstroke with protection up active. In addition to this, I've found that when HK-47 is marked, and Grand Master Yoda uses Unstoppable Force, he often (perhaps every time, but I haven't gotten a large enough sample size, only around 5 or 6 battles) is able to score a critical hit against HK-47. HK-47 should have 150% critical avoidance, meaning that for Yoda to score a critical hit he needs to have a >150% critical chance. I've checked the stats of the teams I'm fighting, and his critical chance (after mods) has been anywhere from 30-45% (depending on which team I attack). In all cases less than 50%. Jedi Knight Revan (in the setups I'm facing) adds an additional 40% with his leader ability, and Bastila usually uses rally on Grand Master Yoda to add another 25% with critical chance up. In all cases this would add up to less 150% (115 in this example), in which case it should be impossible to score a critical hit.

Hey, thanks for the report. We have flagged a bug with Grand Master Yoda gaining bonus Turn Meter when using "Battle Meditation" and HK-47 is in the enemy team under Darth Revan leader.

Bonus turns can't be prevented, same with wicket, malak, and Thrawn Turn swap. Daze and/or shock would not prevent the bonus turn
While a bonus turn is gaining 100% TM CG has intentionally not tagged these as "speed_recovery" to allow the bonus turn where is would otherwise be stopped.


Re: upon using Battle Meditation, grants his entire team protection up for 2 turns, then gains a significant amount of turn meter (which should be prevented with HK's Zeta)
GMY gains TM first then grants protection up.
all actions are based on order of operations (which are NOT as described in the abililties)

Re: HK-47's Loyalty to the Maker not functioning as described.

Boba Fett gains a "bonus turn" upon receiving a contract Payout, but that is stopped by Daze. So, it seems like the application of "bonus turns" is inconsistent, if other characters are not being prevented.

Thrawn's turn swap is different because "Swap turn meter" does not actually cause the other character to "gain turn meter" (despite the fact that the other character's tm bar ends up full, regardless of where it was before).

I don't have any information about whether daze or shock (or HK-47 zeta) would prevent Wicket or Malak from taking their bonus turn - but if theirs can't be prevented & Boba's can be, then there's likely a bug with the implementation of bonus turns in general.
