Bugged exp shot? (in General)

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 20 2006 11:15 AM EDT

First round
His Beer missed Bengal

second round
His Beer missed Bengal

Third round
His Beer's explosive shot hit Bengal [5654], Siberian [2156], Indochinese
[2160], Sumatran [2155]
His Beer's explosive shot hit Sumatran [3985], Siberian [1408], Indochinese [1410]

Rip Bengal

Looks like the exp shot is seeking.
This is vs Tigah
And the mage is in the middle.
I tried it a couple of times and it hits the mage when exp shot is equiped.
Tried it with normal iron shot no problem what so ever.

Are you using up any Ex Shots?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 20 2006 11:19 AM EDT

On my character : Helmut Yes

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 20 2006 11:21 AM EDT

:/ Still got 7,810 Iron Shots.

AdminShade September 20 2006 11:27 AM EDT

have you tried the same with other teams with 1 mage as well?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 20 2006 11:36 AM EDT

His Beer's explosive shot hit Jinmai [3750], Oni [1251], Nouchu [1011], Descakang [1294]

vs Ranit

It does the same thing.

AdminShade September 20 2006 11:41 AM EDT

Then this is another bug (duh obvious conclusion, yes I know...)

Maelstrom September 20 2006 12:50 PM EDT

I think when people were suggesting exp shots should have splash damage, people said that they should target a minion in the center, with the splash damage going to the others. Maybe that's what's happening?

Does it target a mage regardless of where they are, or does it target a minion in the center?

AdminShade September 20 2006 12:53 PM EDT

Don't know but it shouldn't be like that...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 20 2006 12:54 PM EDT

Ah, would this be the reason it targetted on minion, then in the next hit of the same round a different one? in a four minion team minions 2 and 3 would be the minddile, so they share the hits between them?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 20 2006 1:07 PM EDT

nope it targets mages regardless, i had fights that it target a DD familiar that was up front.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 20 2006 1:27 PM EDT

Its getting stranger

this time in the 2nd round His Beer explosive shot hit Bengal [4462], Siberian [1687], Indochinese [1681], Sumatran [1680]
but in the second hit in that same round this happend His Beer explosive shot hit Sumatran [5280], Siberian [1948], Indochinese [1944], Bengal [1671]

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 20 2006 1:34 PM EDT

its starting to act like a seeker in the first hit of the round
And on the second hit of that same round it acts like a MM targeting the last minion.
Is this one of those surprise weapons?

QBBarzooMonkey September 20 2006 2:16 PM EDT

My question is: are the explosive shots doing the seeking thing, or is it the SoD? Have you tried pebbles or iron shot yet?

QBBarzooMonkey September 20 2006 2:17 PM EDT

My bad, I skipped the last line of your original post completely -sorry :P

Flamey September 20 2006 4:58 PM EDT

seriously why would a sling target mages, that is just unfair.

anyone would think it would hit, 1,2,3,4 but no, it has to be different!

AdminJonathan September 20 2006 5:20 PM EDT


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 20 2006 7:29 PM EDT

Managed to get some Ex Shots! ;)

They are still hitting different minions first on multiple hits, is thist intended?

Talhearn's explosive shot hit Jesus [14000], Micheal [5600], Gabriel [5600], Lucifer [5600]
Talhearn's explosive shot hit Lucifer [10425], Jesus [4170], Micheal [4170], Gabriel [4170]

Jesus is the first minion, while Lucifer is the last in minion order.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 21 2006 7:49 AM EDT

happens to me too

His Beer explosive shot hit killcrazy [4079], killalot [1660], killjoy [1660], killme [1660]
His Beer explosive shot hit killme [5308], killcrazy [2200], killalot [2200], killjoy [2200]

Does it go front to back? anyone getting triple hits shed a light on the situation?

(And all the names of the minions are not in the spell checker which doens't make posting easier without using HTML code)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 21 2006 8:54 AM EDT

Well the second hit isn't in reverse order.. :/

QBJohnnywas September 21 2006 9:01 AM EDT

Looks like they're all running out of the way of the explosion and getting their order mixed up.

If they are being shown out of order during splash damage, does any other attacks show them in a different order?

GL, you fixed up with ex shot and CoC? See what order a team is, see if it changes during ex shot splash, and then see if it remains that way for your CoC attack...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 21 2006 9:02 AM EDT

I've only got a couple of Ex Shots. :/ I'll go see! ;)
