This is not the first time I've seen this problem, but this is the first it's gotten me mad enough to do something about it. So here it is. The boat raid ships can glitch and not lose any health, meaning you will always fail the raid. It is so frusterating, especially since it only comes every 2 hours and most of those times you have other things going on. I only get 1 or 2 chances a day, if any at all.

 

I was using the app I installed from the windows store on my Windows 10 desktop. It was the 10:00 a.m. raid.

 

I don't know how to post pictures and I couldn't find an answer anywhere, so I just attached the file of the screenshot.

This stuff started when Dreadfall began and it really should be fixed.

Ship's health is negative when it spawns and it causes many issues.

I've had this problem recently. When I saw the boat wasn't losing health I switched servers by switching to single player for a few seconds and then switching back to multiplayer. Both times I ended up getting on a server with a working battle but then the battle glitched for me at the end. Both times the ship got down to less than 10 health and then it stopped taking damage. I was the only one this happened to because everyone else stopped moving like they always do when the leader board comes up and then I heard the sound you hear right before the ship disappears but the ship didn't disappear, it just sat there with less than 10 health left(I think it was about 6 - 9 health).

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.

I am having the same problem

I am having the same exact problem as HPowers, each time I join an ongoing battle event. 

 

After Snoggletog ended, the original battle event I took part in seemed to be, mostly, working correctly.  So, I've done some reviewing of the times these bad events are occuring to me. After Snoggletog ended, I was so eager for battle events which actually provided rewards and helped my dragons to level up, I started arriving at the TG five, ten, even fifteen minutes early, so I could be right in the middle of the crowd that attacked the very first ship. I was rewarded with good/great battles, received actual rewards and my dragons were leveling up. Oh, it was great to see and fight in a real battle event again. 

 

But now I'm expericing the problem listed in this thread. It has occured to me that it only happens, after I have joined a battle event that is already in progress, and, mostly, when I use the chat's link on a battle annoucement message to join the battle. I usually end up joining an active battle event, but the ship health is alway listed as 9000/9000 or 14000/14000. The ship's score never changes, and the whole event ends in defeat. I sometimes attempted to move over to another server, when this happens, but when I do each battle I join always ends with the score stalled at 1-20 points before victory is achieved. Again, more defeats.

 

I'm going to go back to arriving before the battle events start just to see if I can get some more good battle events. I can't say every battle has ends well, by arriving early, but at least there was a much better average of experiencing some battle event Victories.  

 

Will post results/more info later. . . 

 

PS I play on a Desktop computer with Windows 10 OS, and I use Google Browser. CB

Update on my Battle events. . .

Update on my Battle events. . . using the method I listed above in my original reply to this thread.

I've only had time for three battle events: Yesterday at 6 PM and 8 PM, Fri. 31-Jan-20 and Today 10AM,  Sat. 2-1-20. I had a total tbree battle events periods, but I achieved four Victories, and two of the events also enabled me to level up two of my dragons. In the first event, the original battle went so fast, that I had time to move to another server with amother battle event already in progress. I had victories on both of these battles, although I didn't expect the second one. The other two battle events did not leave me enough time to change servers to seek other battles. But, three events with four victories, felt really goooooood, since I've only joined three battle in two day. 

I don't know why this method is allowing me to achieve victories, but it's working to combat the constant run of problems when I tried to join battle events that have already started. Many of us are expeirencing these problems. 

I'm just offering this info, in case, it might be of use to other players having the same problems, and perhaps it will give the game Administrators more info that will help in resolving these ongoing battle event problems that many of us are experiencing. 

Thank you,

CB

Broken hp bar.

This is all too much for me.

I just want the problem fixed. Sometimes, the hp bar does not go down.

Bumping the thread because the problem I described above keeps happening to me. In fact, 2 out of the 3 battles I've done(or tried to do) today have glitched. The first battle was exactly as I described in my first post on this thread. The second battle started ok, the ship was taking damage, but once it reached a certain point it stopped taking damage. Pretty sure these glitches have been around since battles were added to the game but the problem has become a lot more frequent lately and it seems that the problems started becoming more frequent during the Dreadfall event. It's gotten to the point that whenever I do a battle I'm thinking "I hope this one actually works and doesn't glitch." It's getting very frustrating that more and more battles cannot be done, meaning a missed opportunity at xp and prizes, because of these glitches. This really needs to be fixed.

Yeah it maintained 9,000 health and in turn dealt no damage. Battle was over, nobody won. :( It sucks for me because I only get this opportunity MAYBE three times a week. And I had a good chance at gold...

Bumping again.

Guess how many battles I've successfully done today? None! :/ I've tried to participate in 3 battles today and every single one of them has glitched. The first 2 battles I tried to participate in the ship would not take any damage so I switched servers and each time I got on a server where the ship was taking damage, however, once the ship's health got low it stopped taking damage. The third battle I tried to participate in started out fine but once the ship's health got low it stopped taking damage. I tried to switch servers but I couldn't find a server with an ongoing battle. This is beyond frustrating! I don't mean to sound like a whiny, bratty child, that's the last thing I want to sound like, but I'm really frustrated by this. I'm missing out on a lot of xp for my dragons and potential gems and eggs from the mystery chests because this bug has gotten so bad. This needs to be fixed asap!

Bumping again.

Encountered 2 battles that glitched today. The first battle, the ship wouldn't take any damage, the second one, the ship stopped taking damage when it got down to 1 health. That's 2 missed opportunities to earn medals for Thawfest. Very disappointing and frustrating. Would be nice if all the glitches associated with battles would actually be acknowledged and fixed.

You're welcome. :) I figured since all these battle glitches are still happening and the Thawfest event is going on that it was time for another bump.

ah jeez

I've had this exact issue constantly, to the point where if not for these glitches (only have won like two battles out of maybe 6 or 7 in the past few days) I would be bringing in a bunch of gold, possibly gems, or even eggs (not to mention all the medals I could have gotten, bye-bye eret flightsuit)

I just actually took part in one a few minutes ago, and others were experiencing the same glitch as I

as I'm writing this (around 43 minutes until the next event, as screenshots say 52 minutes) the boat is still there
