Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 1 2010 9:02 PM EST

Sorry... database error. Guess this new Character will have to wait.

How do you retire a tournament character?

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 2 2010 10:59 AM EST

same way you retire a normal character.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 2 2010 11:43 AM EST

Manage -> retire selected

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 12:14 PM EST

i couldn't retire mine in the last tournament, it wasn't a big deal so i never really brought it up.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 2 2010 12:16 PM EST

What happened when you tried dude?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 2 2010 12:48 PM EST

When you fight with a tourney char, the sidebar name disappears and it only shows the score for your character.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 12:50 PM EST

it wouldn't give an error or anything, it just didn't retire it. i could select it and press retire all day and it would still be active. started a test one for this tournament, will try to retire it now.

i also do not have a name for my character in my sidebar.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 12:51 PM EST

i just tried to retire my t char and it did the same thing. it does bring up the "are you sure.." box but will not retire him.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 12:52 PM EST

i also tried switching to my main instead of the t char and retiring, still not working.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 2 2010 12:58 PM EST

I've retired 12 t characters this tourney. >:3

horseguy001 December 2 2010 1:01 PM EST

Turns out I'm pretty bad at the high bonus tournies :)

Pwned December 2 2010 1:15 PM EST

same here

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 1:50 PM EST

i can retire using the admin interface, i will create a brand new one and see if it can be retired.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 1:52 PM EST

the brand new t char cannot be retired using the normal method either.

Minnakht December 2 2010 2:40 PM EST

I have the exact same problem as dudemus; nothing happens after I confirm a retire.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] December 2 2010 3:18 PM EST

What browser are you two using? I never have any issues... mayhap its cache issue...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 2 2010 6:09 PM EST

Can either of you test creating and retiring a normal char?

AdminNightStrike December 2 2010 6:15 PM EST

I'm really going to need a reproducible testcase for this one.

DoS December 2 2010 6:21 PM EST

Thanks for the fun back and forth Elite :P

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 6:34 PM EST

i do believe this is the third tournament this has happened in. i have never had issues with normal characters, only t chars. there is one on my account right now that will not let me retire it ns.

horseguy001 December 2 2010 6:36 PM EST

I had that problem when I was starting a NCB. It would not let me retire any of my characters so I could start stocking BA at a much lower rate. Never happened again though.

Minnakht December 2 2010 6:43 PM EST

I'm using the latest version of firefox, but the retire button doesn't work in chrome either.
