Chain lightning must be bugged

It has no base damage and only 6 ap damage. Flame storm by comparison cost the same mana with better control and that does 12 base and 6 ap. Am I missing something here?

    I disagree on how chain lighting works. IMO CA should add a new mechanic which is exactly like Diablo2 chain lighting but here hitting squads.

    Chain lightning being yet another vortex with different colored pretty lights was very disappointing. I agree with Dandy that it should have a chaining effect and bounce between units rather than just being a ball that might as well be flamestorm or purple sun.

    in tests lightning if stays do more damage to units than flame storm if both dont hit your own troops which they do 80% of the time,so theres more stats like aoe,distance,animation in the works

    Balance Is A Lie

    Chain lightning is not a lightning chain, it shouldnt even be called as such in that state. Probably a money time constrain. Or value/money.

    Either way if thereis a bug it should be fixed obviously. Testit and report with maximum information.
