As all old time players know chainstuns have been one of the biggest problems once pvp started becoming popular. Whats the problem with it, for those who do it is a simple way to win, why dont we just not let the other team hit, BRILLIANT! I know kingsisle has done a few things to attempt to fix it, stun shields. Good idea, but flawed. Teams just would storm lord x2 or giant ect. Several months later they made it so we get 4 shields instead, almost... yet not quite. It works if its schools with stun spells, would take a few turns to remove them all. Classes with stuns are no longer the issue. The problem is earthquake. OH NO dont nerf myth class!!! Save your QQ, the simple solution is to not allow earthquake to remove the stun shields, yet still allow it to remove all other shields and buffs. It really is as simple as that. It is about time pvp requires some actual thought and stragegy.

It'd be a little troublesome changing the earthquake card to fit the words removes all*fist and clover* cards but not stun shields and plus the 4 stun shields thing is only temporary but lets say they take back 4 stun shields and go with your idea then people will just use fire and myth stun continuosly

For this to work, they would have to keep the 4 stun shields there still. A team attempting to chain stun would require the rest of the team to use 2 pip team stuns or hits, which would just be a waste of pips in most cases. As for the earthquake, im sure they would be able to program the stun shield to be a different kind of shield pretty easily. They did make the game after all
