It's not so much a new method but an additional method. With yesterday's build a second way to create combos was added. The first way was introduced last release, the second method is being introduced this release. combining two of the same cards together is an interesting approach to combos. I do like the idea, but my comments are about the implementation. I'm wondering why the current system of creating combos wasn't used as well. Being in battle and having to stop attacking to drag two skills or spells together to get a benefit borders on being useful. It also means spending a few more seconds looking at the bar than being able to move. I was finding myself wanting to be able to use the keyboard to combine the spells rather than dragging. So why couldn't the current system for combining skills and spells be used to combine two or more of the same spell? I also wonder about the disparity between the combination effect when comparing the combining effects between magic spells and combat skills. But that's for another post.
