Who broke the botcheck fee? (in General)


PoisoN May 11 2009 5:01 PM EDT

Your privilege to fight was suspended for 60 minutes when you failed a bot check at 3:24 PM EDT. Current server time is 4:55 PM EDT.

You may fight again when that time has elapsed, or you may continue immediately after paying a fine of $0. Click here to pay $0 and continue fighting.

I see this since a few minutes... hmm?

QBRanger May 11 2009 5:04 PM EDT

It has been over 1 hour since you failed that botcheck. Therefore the 0 cost.

PoisoN May 11 2009 5:14 PM EDT

Sorry, the key point is: why does it stay this way? I remember I paid something, than it went down to $0. Can't fight.

The old school style was somehow better, I paid, I could continue to play.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 11 2009 5:16 PM EDT

Try clicking fight again?

PoisoN May 11 2009 5:26 PM EDT

Awesome idea, never came into my mind before... ;-)

That's so weird, someone should look into this before you lose some more BA. Can you click the "click here" button?

PoisoN May 11 2009 5:34 PM EDT

Yep, it shows me the latest time :)

QBRanger May 11 2009 5:42 PM EDT

Try logging out and then back in.

PoisoN May 11 2009 6:13 PM EDT

Failed, failed and failed. No fighting for NWO this night :(

AdminG Beee May 11 2009 6:25 PM EDT

Something weird going on that I don't understand. Needs a Jon or an NS to look into it.

Your privilege to fight was suspended for 60 minutes when you failed a bot check at 3:24 PM EDT. Current server time is 6:22 PM EDT.

You're definitely still banned from fighting but if I try to lift the ban I can't.

PS. Perhaps it has something to do with the check you failed... ;)

o.O you're sooooo mean ;-)

"No fighting for NWO this night"

1st in battles challenged (by quite a wide margin) 3rd in total battles (Guess you're not as farmable as bart and Dolphin :P), not fighting must be quite the awkward feeling for NWO...

TheHatchetman May 11 2009 7:14 PM EDT

and by "quite a wide margin", I mean you could take the next 6 months off, not spending any BA while nobody else in CB misses a single one, and you'd still be ahead by a few thousand battles :o

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 11 2009 7:55 PM EDT

The real #1 can't fight... it's a travesty.

Untouchable May 11 2009 8:15 PM EDT

rant @ Jon/NS!

There is a $2099 server on here that might match your specs.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 11 2009 8:23 PM EDT

oops, wrong thread

PoisoN May 12 2009 2:42 AM EDT

A few hours later (yeah, lame excuse for a bump):

Your privilege to fight was suspended for 60 minutes when you failed a bot check at 3:24 PM EDT. Current server time is 2:40 AM EDT.

You may fight again when that time has elapsed, or you may continue immediately after paying a fine of $0. Click here to pay $0 and continue fighting.

AdminNightStrike May 12 2009 3:55 AM EDT

Apologies for not seeing this thread earlier. I am looking into it now.

AdminNightStrike May 12 2009 4:02 AM EDT

You work now. I don't know what went wrong, but you currently work right :)

PoisoN May 12 2009 4:33 AM EDT

Yep, works fine now, thx.

Godpanda May 12 2009 8:55 AM EDT

Poor PoisoN :P

/goes to try and duplicate the effect.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 11:01 AM EDT

Generally speaking, this is not something you would like to duplicate.

Godpanda May 12 2009 11:03 AM EDT

It should be known if this issue will keep popping up.

I'd rather do it deliberately than have a new player quit because he can't fight and doesn't know what's going on.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 11:06 AM EDT

Now your making me feel guilty.

On a related topic, I am able to spend BA during a temporary (20 minute) fight suspension for "trying to fight two opponents at once" or something.

I click fight, and it takes me to a page that tells me I can't fight for 20 minutes, but when I look at my equip page, my minions have gained experience and my tattoo has increased in level. In my battle log, it says I've fought whatever opponent was in my side bar at the time. And if I refresh the side bar, I have one less BA.

Cube May 12 2009 10:22 PM EDT

Sorry for doing this, but in an effort to make you feel more guilty.

Now you're making me feel guilty.

AdminNightStrike May 12 2009 11:56 PM EDT

Warfish - known issue. Please don't abuse it.

Cube May 13 2009 12:13 AM EDT

Nightstrike, that's a known bug? My experience was slightly different than Warfish's though.

I haven't fought for a while, but I remember when I did fight I would see that page once in a while, but it wouldn't effect me, I could just fight as if I hadn't been suspended.

As for abuse, I don't see how it can be abused as it still costs a BA.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] May 29 2009 10:44 PM EDT

NS is this going to ever be fixed? I mean I know you can "abuse" it, but there's also other things that happen. One time I got the 10 minute suspension and I clicked fight to check and see if it's up. Well after I clicked fight the message came up, no big dead. When the time had expired, I had a failed a bot-check some how. I checked the time and it was during the 10 minute suspension. So, you can fail bot-checks with out the bot-check even showing up. It'd be nice if this was fixed, but if it's not, here's the warning for whoever reads this.

AdminNightStrike May 29 2009 11:23 PM EDT

hmm... anytime I've gone through a fight while suspended and triggered a botcheck, I've gotten the botcheck to appear.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 29 2009 11:41 PM EDT

I once had no BA and clicked on fight. I got a botcheck. Not sure what that would actually achieve if you stopped the guy with no BA from fighting :P

Daz May 29 2009 11:50 PM EDT

Well you also stop them from gaining any BA for an hour...
