The Hydra bug again (in General)


Sickone May 15 2008 2:32 PM EDT

Can we PLEASE have a solution to it already ?
I mean, a bugfix, not a "force him not to use that layout" decision.

j'bob May 15 2008 2:36 PM EDT

yes please. i don't get a great bonus from him but i could sure use the clan points.
and yes, it is not fair to tell him he can't use that layout, he could not have known what it would cause. he deserves to be able to run with the items he's invested in... and we all deserve the chance to farm him openly if we so desire!!!
freedom for all!!!!

I didn't realise I had Hydra on my fightlist until just now. Got a nice big server error....

QBJohnnywas May 15 2008 2:46 PM EDT

And fight suspension. Oh well. It's time for dinner anyway....

Koshka May 15 2008 2:49 PM EDT

That explains my fight suspension also, then. What is this bug?

Sickone May 15 2008 2:54 PM EDT

Whenever his first minion is "General" (Junction minion) and has equipped "An Amulet of Leadership" + "A Jigorokano Familiar", anybody who's attacking him gets a "server error" page instead of an actual fight.

HE can fight anybody he wants to in that particular configuration, but whenever somebody fights him, they have to wait a random amount of time (seems to be anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes) before attempting to fight again... or else they get the "you are already fighting" page, and after a couple of tries, they get a fight suspension penalty (no fights for one hour unless you pay a big fine).

Koshka May 15 2008 2:58 PM EDT

Having said that, I haven't fought Hydra for over 6 hours. Is this something else entirely?

Koshka May 15 2008 3:02 PM EDT

...so now I'm suspended for 20 minutes. Still not fought Hydra for 6 hours, and left a sizeable gap between seeing the multiple fight message and fighting again. No to mention the server errors. Is this normal?

fixed

Three cheers for Jon!!!
Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray!

Thanks Jon.

Awesome \o/

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 15 2008 4:16 PM EDT

woot!

Koshka May 15 2008 4:51 PM EDT

That's service. Thanks Jon!
Now, there's this other bug where I can't beat people with much higher PR & NW than me, can you fix that too please? ;)

*smiles angellically* I think it's high time little Hydra got a taste of negative CPs >: )

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] May 15 2008 8:03 PM EDT

Thank you for fixing this! Now I can finally fight how I had originally planned.

Levon [Clocked Out] May 16 2008 6:02 AM EDT

lol... i was going to say that Hydra was honourable to not attack me given i wasn't able to attack him for the past month i guess

then i just check my fightlist

Pheather May 16 2008 6:30 AM EDT

Hehe, and you've been on my fight list for a while now. But you aren't in a clan, so it really doesn't matter. (Join a clan so I can get some Clan points)!

Levon [Clocked Out] May 16 2008 1:27 PM EDT

i'm in the only clan that wouldn't kick me out
