Default Global Enchantments

Quick question, has anyone ever seen a global enchantment just straight up fail to take effect? In one of my multiplayer games I tried to cast Well of Misery and was told it was overpowered by an existing enchantment, but there are only 4 globals up and none of them are Well of Misery.

This is theoretically possible. Basically, what would have to happen is that someone put up a global, you put up a Well that didn't take effect, and a Dispel went off and took the first one out, all on the same turn. Otherwise, it's probably a bug, and not one I've ever seen.

One of the mages that put up a global could also have died. It happens sometimes. But it is weird.

I think I know what happened, o it must have tried to overpower a global, failed, and then a different global got dispelled. Which is still weird because I thought weak globals would be the first ones targeted and I know at least 3 of the globals up wouldn't have withstood it.

If you have save turn before & after, are there exactly the same 4 globals up (by the same ppl) the turn before as the turn after?

I hate when my enchantments fail. Sometimes I'll even duplicate the turn file in case it does. All those gems wasted!

That also checks out, and is probably somewhat more likely. Still, the described scenario isn't one likely to show up often.

Never heard of this before also. So I doubt it is true.
