If you mean they seem to be deflected right before they hit a castle where
the warlord is "dead", there is a reason for this -- the shield from that
castle is STILL there, but is the color of the playfield, and that causes
the deflection.  (If you look, you can see the "ghost" of the shield and
dead warlord everytime a brick is hit)
