Why is My Troop Summoning code not working?


#1
def summonTroops():
    summon = ["griffin-rider", "paladin"]
    index = n % 2
    type = summon[index]
    if hero.gold >= hero.costOf(type):
        hero.summon(type)
        n += 1
        return
    else:
        return

Instead of alternating between griffin and paladin, it keeps summoning griffin. Why?


#2

This code is working fine
I tested it like that

n = 0;

def summonTroops():
    summon = ["griffin-rider", "paladin"]
    index = n % 2
    type = summon[index]
    if hero.gold >= hero.costOf(type):
        hero.summon(type)
        n += 1
        return
    else:
        return

while True:
    summonTroops()

Problem is somewhere else
I think you have problem with “n” somewhere in the code

hmm
i removed the “griffin-rider” from the summon list, and the paladins got summoned… but when i add the griffins back in as the second term of the array (summon[1]), it does the bug and keeps summoning griffins again.
maybe i used n as a variable somewhere else in my code too…?
OMG i am sooo annoyed right now… i have to go back and search through my thousand loc. Thanks for pointing that out though :slight_smile:
