It won't let me post this in the PC bug report forms so I'm posting it here. (It may also be happening on mobile, however)

 

Alright, here's the bug. 99% of the time when I participate in a battle event the ship won't take any damage. From what I've seen in the chat (during these specific events) other players aren't getting hits

in either. I kind of expect this to happen occasionally in a buggy game like this, but it's starting to get really frustrating.

 

I played the battle event twice yesterday and three times today and 1 out of 5 times the ship actually took damage. After my second attempt today worked, I was relieved believing that this wouldn't be much of an issue anymore. Yet it happened again.

Basically, this is happening WAY too much. I dunno if it's just bad luck or something- either way, this shouldn't be an issue at all.

 

If anyone else has been experiencing this a lot lately, I'd appreciate a reply. The SoD team doesn't have a good track record of fixing problems but any information helps.

I doubt it's a device issue, but for information purposes I play on a Windows 10 lenovo laptop running 64bits (I've never had a computer play this game as smooth as this one does)

Hello There!

I've had an account here since 2014 and have been a fan of How To Train Your Dragon since the movie's first release! I've grown up with this franchise and I'm so proud with what it's become over the years.

Slice of History

I've been active in "spurts", as is probably evident by my dragons adoption dates. I remember being around before the Icestorm expansion came out, and winning Thunder in a mystery egg chest as a reward for an achivement in Thunder Run racing (by collecting like, 500 sheep). Then I took a few months break and returned in 2015. I grinded quests until I got to the Whispering Death one, where I adopted Frostbite. I forget how I got Neon exactly, but it was definitely from a mystery egg chest. I don't think I was around when Battle Events first released because it took me forever to figure out what they were and where. I left for a few years and made a return in 2019. I finally figured out how to farm properly and "dominate" in battle events. I grinded and grinded for a Nightlight when they first came out in the snoggletog event, but I missed a few days and ultimately failed. I was salty about that for a while so I left for 2 years lol. Back here in 2021 inspired after watching the httyd movie for the first time in ages. Dunno how long I'll last this time around. However, I've been a user on this game for years and hardly have anything to show for it- and I'm determined to change that xD

 

I've never spent a single penny on this game and I plan to keep it that way! I pride myself in unlocking as much as I can without spending money. It's difficult, but makes the rewards feel even more special. :)

Yeah

Yeah, I experienced this issue a lot before I switched to mobile. The ships never bugged out for me on mobile but on PC it glitches a TON. Last time I played a battle event on PC (which was about 1-2 years ago, give or take a few months) it didn't take any damage. Kinda sad that this bug has been around for over a year and they haven't fixed it yet :/

Yeah, this has happened to me a lot too since forever. It isn't as frequent as you have it, but frequent enough to really be annoying. Not sure about mobile, I used to play it but switched to pc early on. But as far as I know, it's been around for ages, and they still haven't fixed it despite many suggestions to do so.

This bug has been around for years, probably since battles were added to the game which was in 2015/2016. I really wish they would fix it but I have serious doubts that it ever will be since it's been around for years.

 

When a battle glitches I suggest closing and reopening the game. Sometimes that will put you on a different server with a working battle. Even if it doesn't it's been my experience that if you don't close and reopen the game the battles will continue to glitch as long as you remain on the game.(Do not try to switch servers to find a working battle by going into single player and then back to multiplayer. If you do this and you get on a server with a working battle the battle will glitch at the end for you. You will see the ship stop taking damage while it works fine for everyone else.)

 

Edit: After seeing a couple other comments on here it looks as though the problem I described with switching servers by turning MMO off and on doesn't affect everyone so I suggest trying that first. It will save you time and is a much better method than closing and reopening the game. I don't whether it will work for you but I do suggest trying it first.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

Yeaahhh I've had it happen to me before years ago but never to this extent. I haven't been active in two years and the first two days of playing after that time did not leave a good impression on me lol

 

Thank you for the tips! I'll definitely be trying those out when this happens again.

I see you've missed something

Another thing you could do is turn MMO on and then off. It's faster than closing and re-opening the game if you have slow internet. Your servers will change or not- just keep repeating it 'til you get there.

EDIT: HPowers, the server switch works for me every single time- what do you mean?

I can vouch for this, was just going to say myself o.O

I never need to reopen the game, switching servers works perfectly fine for me as well and has saved my behind MULTIPLE times. Reopening the game will just waste time.

At one time switching between multiplayer and single player worked for me and then it just stopped working. Whenever I did that it would always result in the ship glitching for me at the end, it would stop taking damage when the health got to almost 0. I had seen someone else post that the same thing was happening to them whenver they switched between multiplayer and single player to find a working battle a while back so I assumed that everyone was having that trouble. Sorry about that! Maybe I need to try it again. Maybe it will actually be working for me again.

Nobody can post in the pc bug report forums because they were purposely closed down in order to entice people to click the big 'contact customer support' banner, so the reports actually end up at the support department.

 

Posting in the mobile forums won't do much.

Aah I guess that makes sense. Heh, well, I wonder what's the point in keeping both forums around then? x'D Had no clue about this though, thanks for letting me know.

 

I submitted a ticket. Not feeling very optimistic about a response but hey, its done and there. I've done all I can.

Hopefully things will change one day and they'll be more responsible in taking care of these bugs. I understand this is an old game and things are most likely messy, but if you're still going to promote and update the game you should be expected to take care of it's problems too.

I'm not sure, actually! I think it'd be best if they closed the mobile subforum as well, and put a link to customer support on the top of either subforum. Would save a lot of reports that go without feedback.

 

Hopefully, if enough people report the issue, maybe something will be done about it. For me, this has been a thing ever since battles were released, so I've given up on them hahaha.
