Malchor Leap SP Bug: 3 Weeks, 600 Posts, 66000 Views and counting.......

ste2000ste2000 londonPosts: 4,699Member Uncommon

Ok, this is a bit tongue in cheek.

I kinda like GW2, I am still not bored as I was in SWTOR, WAR, Rift and all the other Themeparks.

Anet did something good, don't know what it is, but this game is actually OK as a casual game.

I have to say though that the bugs currently present in the game are more than I expected to find, and some of them are starting to get on people nerves, mine included obviously.

Anet seems a bit all over at the moment, they are not fixing the bugs fast enough (although they are trying hard), even the ones reported weeks ago which are quite inconvinient and could be fixed fairly easy.

So I decided to export to MMORPG.com the most popular bug of the game.

 

I am talking about the Skill Point in Malchor Leap, which apparently has been broken since launch and works only once every Server reset, after one use it gets broken for the entire day.

This is a bug that affets all the Servers and although is not game breaking, it became extremely annoying and frustrating since it's stopping people from completing the 100% World Map Achievement.

Every time you play in the Area in the chat window every 2 sentences there is the usual "Is the SP being fixed yet?".

People are camping the spots for days hoping to login soon after Server reset and complete the challenge (me included).

This bug has its own thread on the official forums of course, and although it's being reported almost 3 weeks ago, it counts 600 posts and 66.000 views, Anet seems like it cannot care less.

Now I know what the fanboyz are going to say at this point, "maybe it is a difficult bug to fix"

Maybe, but there is a work around, they could change the Skill Point from Challenge to Commune, this way the Point won't despawn and disappear forever.

Why this hasn't been done yet it's beyond everyone comprehension, some people are suggesting that Anet is willingly keeping that broken so people won't complete the map and will play longer, but to me it doesn't make sense.

I believe they really do not have a clue how frustrating this bug is.

So in case Anet Devs read more MMORPG.com than their own forums, I decided to export their thread to here, for a laugh more than anything else.

 

Here is the link of the Bug Forum, you can find the thread easily, it is always in the front page, and it is the one with an awful amount of Posts and Views:

GW2 Bugs Report  Forum

Oh and please if you are affected by this bug, feel free to post it in here, you never know maybe Anet Devs happen to read this forum image

I will start.

SP Broken on Underworld (EU)

 

PS: Don't take this post too seriously please. It's intended to be light hearted, I know Anet is working its arse off to fix all the bugs ASAP  image

    Yeah it affects me. Someoen last night (when I zoned into ML for my daily check) was trying to start an "Occupy Bayt Fallahin Movement" image

     

    Even worse than that one, due to the number of people who it affects--i.e. every single new human--is the one in Beetletun in Queensdale that I first saw bugged in my very first beta WE. You know the one where the NPC appears in a non-interactive downed position?

     

    Completion Map rewards are one of the best ways to get level-appropriate (random) good gear. Heck when I completed Straits of Devastation, the zone just before ML, I got 2 80 exotics...was expecting the same from ML completion.

    The thing that bugs me the most about this issue. Is every 5 minutes someone zones in and asks if it has been fixed yet, when the last patch was days ago already. Somehow they think it gets magically fixed by itself or something. 

    I will be there in the morning around restart/patch time if they don't do either, I move on to other things. Like I have with all the other ones.

    I can give you a screenshot of my 100% completed Malchior's Leap...

    The Iron Marches are much, much worse, and yeah, it sucks that this isn't fixed. The last patch apparently also bugged some escort quests.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    This is funny because I literally just got to this skillpoint. It's all I need to say good riddance to exploring Orr. Bugged here in Dragonbrand.
  • ArthasmArthasm LoznicaPosts: 754Member Uncommon
    I moved to Ruins of Surmia and finished SP challenge. That was new server, almost nobody runing in the zone. Few days later, friend couldn't finish it. Guess it affects all servers now...

    All I have left for 100% world completion which is rather annoying.

    I know they're working their arses off, but they need to fix these ASAP. I love playing GW2, but all the broken skill challenges and events can get annoying. Today, I played for four hours, exploring Lornar's Pass and Bloodtide Coast, encountering five or so broken events and one event chain that worked. It was still fun, but just doing Hearts and exploring gets a bit old. DEs are supposed to be the game's main attraction, but now they're the main source of bugs.

    I know this topic is about a SP, but they seem to suffer from the same bugs that affects DEs. After all, they're essentially just player-triggered DEs that give you a SP on completion.

    There are two bugged skill points in teh last zone, one in a maze and the other on a boat, that I couldn't get after days of checking and no server reboots.

     

    It's a joke that they can't come up with a workaround until they fix their bugged code.

    If you guys are still hitting this issue on the Enchanted Bow skill challenge, this is because the fix didn’t make it into tonight’s build . We have the fix and will put it into our next build, which hopefully will be sooner than later.

    We’re sorry about the hassle this has caused a lot of you. I can assure you that this skill challenge nightmare will be over soon.

    -Bill

    I'm thinking they need a test server.  As these are issues coming up via the patches.  I've gotten 100% map completion already and am taking some alts through zones I've done before without any issues and I'm coming across newly broken events and skill challenges.  So, they really need to QA the patches better or make a test server, anything to curtail this issue.  Game is still phenomenal though and worth the hiccups.  Not many games are good enough to let these bugs stay this long without massive bleeding of the population.

    I tried doing this earlier today, and it was bugged.  I had no idea it was this long since being fixed.  I just hit 80 tonight, and there is so many bugged events, personal stories, and skills, etc.  I really hope they fix these within a month.  These literally are game-breaking for many people.

    Yep. GW2 has more bugs than starship troopers. I remember reading a topic here by some guy called atlan99? he made a topic about how buggy Orr is after first week and he was flamed to oblivion.

    Guy wasn't lying. Just have a look at the BUG section on official forums. It is amazing to see so many personal storylines not working, broken SP, DE's, hearts and what not.

    Not a lot of people go to Lonar's Pass and it seems for that reason, a lot of the events remain bugged because very few people report them.

    This is not a game.

    I tend not to care too much unless it's gamebreaking, I'll get stuff done eventually.

    I have 100% Kessex, and there are no inaccessible POIs there. But there are some underwater, some in caves, and some in caves you can only enter underwater.

    Just an example, there's on POI that seems to be on some island... well, it's not ON the island, it's UNDER the island :)

    I got it, never knew it was bugged, I'm on Vabbi (EU)... Go there and try it, you can always transfer back if it doesn't work.
