Can we please fix evasion, Time that is. (in General)

QBRanger November 9 2007 7:19 PM EST

Even though I no longer have a huge evasion, one person on my fightlist does-Igot noname.

It seems that very frequently I get an error message saying I am in the middle of a battle and to continue will be a suspension. I only get this when trying to fight this character with its massive evasion. So I train or do something else and still when I try to fight, I get a 10 min time out. I have to wait, sometimes it feels like 3 minutes to be able to fight again.

I know when Dudemus changes items or goes to the train page the program likes to take time to calculate his evasion. However this is bogging my fighting and a few others. I know, I know, just take him off my list. But what fun is that.

Anyone else have this problem?

Now I tried to inspect that character, got frozen. So then went to the train page, trained, tried to fight someone else and got a 10 minute fight suspension.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 9 2007 7:58 PM EST

there are a few things in the game ranger and i can agree on! :)

when i train now it is taking on average between one and three minutes from when i hit the train link to when it all refreshes and shows my newly trained stats. i think it is this training lag that is causing the issues with fighting me as well.

please fix it, i had hoped that when ash went over my evasion and took the number one spot that it would alleviate some of my training lag, it hasn't though.

i cant even inspect your char.... it loads for ages...

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 10 2007 8:23 AM EST

i got da funk!

QBRanger November 10 2007 8:25 AM EST

This is one way to stop from being attacked though!

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] November 10 2007 8:27 AM EST

I agree, and the level of my agreeing stands at about 250%.

Some days I don't mind the wait, but when I am at school or work, it can really be a major hindrance.

Relic November 10 2007 10:07 AM EST

There is nothing wrong folks, I can view his user, character, fight his character with absolutely no lag or wait time. There was a bug a while back that Jon fixed regarding RoBF and the ExBow that was causing me errors, but I haven't had any problems since that fix.

Mikel November 10 2007 10:09 AM EST

wow, I had noticed that every time I get the Error message it happens to be when I'm trying to hit Igotnoname as well.

I agree, this needs to be fixed. I hardly ever get that error, but I have gotten it quite a bit in the last week.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 10 2007 10:17 AM EST

glory ~ it happens when i am training or doing certain things with my character, not all of the time. if you had me on your fight list you would see it.

mikel ~ that is about the same time frame as when you put me back on your fight list no?

Mikel November 10 2007 10:19 AM EST

FYI Glory, it happened to yesterday around 6:30 PM last night.
Currently I don't have a problem viewing him either. Wait until wacky xp time.

Mikel November 10 2007 10:20 AM EST

Yes Dude, that is correct. I put you back on my last last Sunday.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 10 2007 10:21 AM EST

or shoot me a tell and let me hit train, you will definitely see it then.

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] November 10 2007 11:22 AM EST

I've been getting these messages a lot lately aswell : (

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 10 2007 11:35 AM EST

i would suspect that most of the people getting it would have ash's character or mine in their fight list.

Mikel November 10 2007 3:40 PM EST

To allow everyone fair access to the limited cpu resources, each user may only be in one fight at a time.

Mikel November 10 2007 3:44 PM EST

King of Pain (Battle Royale) igot noname (jabberwocky) 3:40 PM EST
King of Pain (Battle Royale) Conundrum (The Knighthood) 3:38 PM EST

a 2 minute delay from when I actually attacked you to the time I actually got results back from the fight.

Last Gasp November 10 2007 3:55 PM EST

I love how the "burdens" of the rich and famous don't even touch us down here in the "middle" classes!

Mikel November 11 2007 10:39 AM EST

Ok I figured out how to stop getting banned from fighting.

Once you get the message about fighting too many fights. All you have to do is stop fighting. Go to Recent Battles: and Click on Mine until the results of your last battle shows up. Once it shows up, you can fight again.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 16 2007 1:28 PM EST

Thats funny, I don't get any lag when I inspect his char. In fact it loads pretty fast. Almost faster than most people...


Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 16 2007 6:22 PM EST

arrgh, it only happens when one of the high evasion characters (top 3 to 5) are in the process of training, once we hit the train button that is.

Atomicboy [The Knighthood] November 16 2007 6:32 PM EST

I find that if I fight someone before dud I don't get any lag.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 16 2007 7:00 PM EST

ha! i am a dud!

th00p November 17 2007 4:50 PM EST

Ranger, I think you need to train evasion higher to step out of the way of those darn time outs.

QBRanger November 17 2007 5:04 PM EST

I do not have evasion trained.

Daz November 18 2007 5:52 AM EST

Well... it'll definitely be higher, then.

QBRanger November 19 2007 10:08 PM EST

Well add Black Sophist to the growing list of people that prevent me from fighting.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] November 20 2007 12:28 AM EST

Sorry Ranger, I only train every time I get done burning my 160 ba. I could just start saving up my exp on that minion and train it in one big chunk every weekend or some such ^_^

Daz November 22 2007 1:15 AM EST

I don't really know how CB works this stuff out, but it may be possible for the high end evasion people to have their evasion worked out before they click the training link and have it compared against a premade table.

You can have any idle server cycles working on this instead of idling!

Admittedly this could take up a fair amount of disk space, but that might be better than having people unable to use cb?

Lumpy Koala November 22 2007 8:29 AM EST

does fighting UC guy create the same problem?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 24 2007 10:47 PM EST

as far as i know, evasion is the only skill/attribute/spell that causes this issue.
