    Ritual bugged at 213.3% effectiveness ..??

    About 85 or 86 casts done ..

    We are covered by the Onslaught ritual with 213.3% effectiveness left! The ritual will be lifted in 120 days.


    That seems a bit excessive?

    Yes we're working on fixing it at the moment. You realize if you KNOW there's a bug with something you're not supposed to exploit it right?
    I do appreciate you bringing this to the Forums, and we will deal with it but don't cast a ritual if you can see it is bugged...

    You're serious? This is a joke right? How was I supposed to know rituals are bugged?
    The only known ritual bug was earlier today/yesterday, which made it apparently finish at 120 casts or something. Which was replied to by the devs that a fix was implemented.

    Anyway, it auto finished after the 48 hours had passed. And I'm not even bloody monarch or steward.

    David.

    Slightly out of line accusing Night of expoliting a bug that a.) we were completely unaware of. B.) he went out of his way to report so you would fix because and i quote “I dont want to win a war like that”. C.) We had no way to stop because it auto cast at max time (and again we didnt know it would bug like this). I would say Night prides himself on being a fair player and i believe his past actions back that up. Your suggestion that he was taking advantage of anything is pretty insulting to say the least.

    If not like we had to do anything crazy for this, the ritual sat at 85 cast and then auto triggered. If you knew about a bug this substantial and allowed the server to continue running i belive that is on you and the other devs, certainly not the guy who brought it to your attention despite the fact that not saying anything would have benefited us immenseley.
    Now I want to ask. Is there anything that the administration can do to stop the hits of "Cakey Cakey"? Since as I understand, it's unfair to attack into someone's war?

    This was a 'bank error in your favour' not a bug that could be exploited.

    Kinda raising an eyebrow at this response DavidC.

    Shooting the messenger like this is a little unfair. Hopefully the bug is resolved soon.

    We all know NightT has a copy of all the code and he spends all day searching for hidden features to exploit, and reports them 4 minutes later.

    No, because if $250 appears in your account that's not yours, and you spend it... guess what you still have to pay it back because it wasn't suppose to be there to begin with.

    Clearly this was a bug, and using it to your advantage is in fact cheating, hence David's response.

    Edit: I'm not accusing NighT of cheating (he said ritual was on pace to auto complete)... just saying David's response is valid.

    As far as i remember, the ritual did not indicate 213% prior to casting. Once it auto cast, it showed 213. Either way, the game broke and it was reported literally minutes after. I dont even think we had anyone make any hits during the broken period. There was no cheating.

    For him to use it to his advantage he would need to be aware of the bugs existences beforehand. Also, how do you suggest that they would avoid this situation?

    I'm pretty sure everyone knew the rituals were bugged. And again, I'm not accusing NighT of cheating (hence my clarification). I merely was replying to the comment of "free money" because of a game screw up.

    How do you avoid it? Easy. Don't activate your ritual. Inquire about what happened. If it auto started, alert the devs. I myself had my KD stop casting on our rit as soon as I was made aware what happened.

    All I was saying is David was in the right with his comments. Doesn't mean he was condemning anyone in this thread.

    He didnt mention NighT specifically but it the comments were taken as such either way. As accusations of NighT cheating as you can see by his reply. Davids comment was poorly worded.

    How do you stop activating when it autocompletes? Isnt this thread exactly that, inquire what or that this happend and alerting the devs?

    He was responded to a post that told people to exploit the bug, that has since been removed.
