Slightly Broken! - FIXED

Post#1 » Wed Jun 07, 2017 4:25 am

Currently on live there is an issue that may cause extreme cooldowns on your abilities.

This is caused by both
* Having an ability on cooldown
* Transitioning to another zone (Flightmaster, Scroll/Book, Scenario pop/leave)

This is cleared on log-off, which can be problematic I'm sure.

If you can avoid zone transitions, you should be fine. This probably means RvR will not be adversely affected. However, if you are planning to run Scenarios it will be more problematic as any skill that is on cooldown when you join or leave, will be broken until you relog. If you're careful about things you can avoid this rather severe bug in the meantime.

This was a piece of code that was intended to preserve your cooldowns between zone transitions. It, somehow, is broken. We attempted to roll it back in a couple different ways, but we can only go back so far without breaking other things. It's a bit of a mystery what caused to to present issues at this time. At least, from the meager skills that those currently awake can provide.

Unfortunately it is the very early morning hours for most of our devs, not to mention most of us hold day jobs and are not necessarily going to dive into troubleshooting and coding right upon waking up. This may persist for the day until other more qualified persons can handle it fully. We're not giving up, just going to sleep for a few hours.

Thank you for your patience.
