Maybe this is an update or maybe a glitch. I don't know but when i was playing against a player, i put more pillz against his cards but his cards attacked first???? It was messed up because there's the little random letters in the speech appeared on my side but his cards attacked first? His name was im a sheep so yeh.
Well, I can get 4 Sure Shots in a game...especially playing with all stars if the opponent has almost only 3 or less power cards and little higher power. So yeah, sureshot can happen a lot and I guess most "experienced" players will try to win via sureshot. Or at least secure a victory via sureshot and only risk losing single rounds if one might get some more points with a bit more risk that effectively does not put winning at a risk.
