Watch List

Postby hcrulesteam » Tue Jan 06, 2015 11:50 am

Dear HeroClix players,

The HeroClix Watch List is a process in which we identify figures and/or other game elements that we feel may have a negative impact on the game of HeroClix. Being on the "Watch List" in of itself is not an errata or change to these figures/game elements, but rather an indication that these figures/game elements are under review and scrutiny and action may be taken on the figure/game element if we feel that it would be in the best interest for a healthy HeroClix game play environment. The actions that may be taken can range anywhere on the spectrum of no changes at all (if we determine after review that we see no negative impact on game play from the figure/game element in question) to banning of the figure/game element (if we determine after review that there is no viable fix that would reduce or eliminate the negative game impact of the figure/game element in question).

This Watch List thread will house all errata to figures/game elements that appeared on a Watch List in one location for players to easily find the official changes to these figures/game elements (if any) - any changes to these figures/game elements will also be posted in the Errata & Clarifications PDFs for the set in which that figure/game element was released.

Below is a list of the official errata to the figures/game elements that appeared on the HeroClix Watch List. The official errata made to these figures/game elements are also located in the Errata & Clarifications PDFs for the set in which that figure/game element was released.

Felix Faust (WK #D-027)—

GREEN BELL OF UTHOOL: Give Felix Faust a free action. Until your next turn, opposing characters within 7 squares may only be given move actions. Felix Faust must roll his d20 on his next turn.

PROJECT THAUMATON: Give Felix Faust a free action. Until your next turn, opposing characters within 7 squares may only be given free actions. Felix Faust must roll his d20 on his next turn.

MYSTICAL TRAP: Give Felix Faust a power action and choose one opposing character within 8 squares with the Mystical keyword and one other opposing character within 8 squares. Place a special Mystical Trap marker in a square occupied by each chosen character. Even if this power is lost, while a character occupies a square with a special Mystical Trap marker, that characters can’t move from the square. When a character who occupies a square with a special Mystical Trap marker takes damage from an attack or all opposing characters occupy Mystical Trap markers, remove the special Mystical Trap marker.


Scarlet Witch (WK #M15-006)
Revised Game text:

HEX MAGIC: Once per turn, after an attack roll has been determined, Scarlet Witch may give the attacker up to 3 Hex Magic tokens if the attacker is within range. A character may not be given Hex Magic tokens if they would have more than 3 Hex Magic tokens on their card. For each token she gives the attacker, reduce the attack total by 1. Opposing characters may be given a free action to remove a Hex Magic token and modify any friendly character’s attack value by +1 this turn.

Additionally, please see the following clarification on Scarlet Witch’s HEX MAGIC power:

Clarification: Opposing characters may be given a free action to remove a Hex Magic token and modify any friendly character’s attack value by +1 this turn. This means any opposing character may be given the free action to remove a Hex magic token from a character friendly to them to activate the modifier effect.

Related Rules Changes:

Probability Control

Probability Control may only be used on rolls that utilize d6s.

Maps

Game effect granted by a map's special rules (such as granting powers and/or abilities) can’t be countered, ignored, or prevented from being used by any non-map effects.

When replacing this character, you may ignore characters and blocking terrain when placing it, then destroy any in squares it’s placed into. Any characters in squares it would be placed into are placed adjacent to it. After actions resolve, any characters placed in this way are dealt 2 damage.
