Petition ID 1479: Improbability bomb has no effect
Submitted Sun, 28 Apr 13 11:22:36 +0000

I've noticed this a few times using ibombs recently. The text says the bomb has been used, I lose it from my bandolier... but no effect.
Here's the text from a recent fight:

Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED
*Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
YOUR Hitpoints: 70
You draw a card from your rather Improbable deck, and add it to your hand.

The bottom card from your hand vanishes.
The reward hopper mounted to the closest camera is briefly enveloped in crackling green lightning. You step back and deftly catch the single Requisition token that clatters out of it, before heading straight back into the fight!
You heft your Debris Thrower to your shoulder, and pull back the handle!
Wild Monkey is hit by a piece of random debris for 5 damage!
Wild Monkey is hit by a piece of random debris for 4 damage!
Wild Monkey is hit by a piece of random debris for 6 damage!
Wild Monkey is hit by a piece of random debris for 1 damage!
Wild Monkey is hit by a piece of random debris for 9 damage!
You light the fuse on the Improbability Bomb and toss it towards your opponent.
You feel an aura of protection gathering around you!
End of Round:
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED
*Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): 20
YOUR Hitpoints: 70

It may seem logical to blame the debris thrower or the fact that I defeated the monster that round, but here's another part of the same fight where the ibomb went off as it's supposed to:
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED
Wild Monkey's Hitpoints (Level 6): DEFEATED

YOUR Hitpoints: 70
You draw a card from your rather Improbable deck, and add it to your hand.

The bottom card from your hand vanishes.
The reward hopper mounted to the closest camera is briefly enveloped in crackling green lightning. You step back and deftly catch the 3 Requisition tokens that pour out of it, before heading straight back into the fight!

Wild Monkey is hit by a piece of random debris for 3 damage!

The bomb bursts into a shower of Requisition tokens! Blimey, there must be about a thousand of them! What's more, all these tokens are swirling into the air and nose-diving straight into your pocket. Result!
You aim for a well-guarded spot!
You feel an aura of protection gathering around you!
End of Round:
