A bug?

Postby goldenguineas on Wed May 03, 2017 1:00 am

I defeated the red dragon today and was disconnected from Nukear LORD before the victory sequence completed. When I logged back on, there was a message in the events about my having defeated the dragon -- but my level wasn't reset. I quit to the fields. Not sure what to do next.

The admins should be able to reset you appropriately and give you your DK, I think.

Not sure whether you should also post this in the Fair Play forum section.

I don't think I've ever seen that happen before. If you got a horse kill, it would appear you have died but killing the dragon would have been recorded and you would've been brought back to level 1.

The only thing I can think of is maybe the connection dropped as you killed the dragon and therefore the game didn't trigger the reset? Did you try to (s)earch for the dragon again to see if it'd let you fight him again? Just curious...

Perhaps admin can give you credit for the DK... Sucks that happened to you... I've never seen that bug before...

I really hope that in such cases the DK can be given by an admin. He even made it to the daily news.

This is why I'm a bit paranoid and punch Enter rather quickly after a DK to get to lvl 1 :ehh?:

It has happened before, and DK was awarded. Only tmo can do it though, not the realm admins.

I'll go see if I can't fix this. Probably won't be perfect.

The game doesn't actually perform the stats update until the end of the victory screen, which is what can cause this.

I added the kill and did the stats reset. Let me know if I got something wrong when doing so. Since I didn't see this yesterday you *technically* lost a day at level 1. Added a little more gold than you'd normally get from a dragon kill because of this. Kinda awkward thing to fix.

Thanks for trying to fix it! My main concern was that I'd come back, challenge the dragon again and somehow end up getting credit for two kills rather than one. I think the problem must have been that my Internet connection dropped for a moment during the victory sequence. I'm not certain, though. Thanks again!

How did you get that much experience on level 1 today? Lay bug?

Almost certainly. He probably got the lay response at level 12 before I edited him down. Guess I'll need to check mails if I need to do this sort of thing in the future.
