Alignment aggro problems continue

Postby Gormal » Wed Jul 09, 2008 4:08 am

I've run into guards lately, the quest mobs in AV, tons of stuff that is broken due to alignment. This one was the most annoying.

The first one where you'd just relo'd. It's pretty funny in that it's the imposed relo lag that contributed to the problem.

They should remove relo lag!

And oddly enough, I've not had any issues with alignment. Are you guys evil bastards or something?

Thank you, everyone, for mentioning additional instances of guards who are misbehaving. Please continue to let us know - I've accumulated a list of potential 'insane' guards and strive to check them all with every reboot or crash, but the list is mainly guesswork.

Eilistraee is working at finding the source of the bug. It is proving to be quite tenacious, though. Hopefully my stop-gap attempts at isolating the 'insane' guards will keep the game playable. Please bear in mind that it takes me about an hour and a half right now to check each one, and I don't get an automatic notification when the mud has rebooted. :P We're doing what we can, and hopefully this will be solved soon.

Removed the aggressive flag from a bunch of bugged mobs. This is only PART of the problem but it should help.

The remaining aspect of this bug has been fixed as of the reboot this morning. Thanks for your patience all.
