The Battle Icons you flip are only effective for that individual battle. Attack and Defense increases will not carry over.
Battle icon colors do not exist simultaneously. When Battle Icons are made to change colors, it happens instantaneously.
There’s a new battle icon on some battle cards in War for Cybertron: Siege I. It’s black! What
does it mean? If you’re on the attack, hopefully good things for you.
For each black battle icon you flip while attacking, your character gets pierce 1 until end of turn.
Remember that pierce numbers add up, so flipping two black icons in an attack will give your
attacker pierce 2, and so on.
No. Black battle icons flipped on defense won’t give your character pierce. (And pierce
doesn’t work on defense anyway.)
This set introduces a new battle icon: green! Here’s how it works. After a battle in which you
flipped at least one card with a green battle icon, you may swap a card in your hand with one of
the cards you flipped with a green battle icon. The card you swap from your hand will be
scrapped at the end of the turn, along with all the other cards you played or flipped during the
No. Only one card with a green battle icon per battle.
The player whose turn it is goes first, then the other player.
That’s just reminder text for anyone who may have forgotten how the green battle icons work.
Yes. You can get one green battle icon per battle.
You can swap for a green battle icon card after each attack has finished. If there are multiple attacks in a turn, you can swap for one green battle icon card after each of those attacks, I.E. attack, swap, attack, swap, and so on.
1. At the end of the battle, you can swap one card in your hand for a green battle icon card you’ve flipped.
2. It does not trigger Shockwave’s ability because you’re not scrapping a card from your hand. The flipped cards are being scrapped.
Infiltrate will never affect a Secret Action because as youve said, you cant see its Battle Icons as its played.
No, only cards with green battle icons that you flipped during that battle can be retrieved after the battle.
Yes. For example, Mindwipe - Hypnotist (body mode) is a melee character that has an ability that triggers "when this attacks and flip at least one black battle icon." If Mindwipe attacks and you flip Master of Metallikato (a battle card with a black ranged battle icon), Mindwipe's ability will trigger, even though the black battle icon will have no effect.
As long as cards were flipped during battle, you can swap cards for green battle icon cards. If a character dies before battle cards are flipped, then you would not be able to swap for green battle icon cards.
