I've noticed this issue since yesterday after the updates (12 September 2013, 5pm [GMT+8] around there).

 

Wherever I go,the Viking avatars of all players will take on a creepy form of Hiccup or Astrid until I get somewhat closer. For yesterday,once I got closer,the Viking will immediately disappear from view i.e are invisible. This happened a lot between my friend and I,and we could only see where the other was because of the speech bubble that appears when we send a chat message. Because of this invisibility thing,some of the dragons appear to be roaming around freely without their riders.

 

Today,the bug is still there. I see dozens of Hiccup and Astrid clones running around,and some were floating. Fortunately,this time,the Viking avatars switch back to the customised avatars of each player once I get closer.

 

Unfortunately,I don't know how to add image attachments in this forum,so I can't really show any screenshots...

Same problem

I had the same problem! My friends were invisible and there were lots of astrids and hiccups. It still happens sometimes, but not as much

*agrees*

Yup, I've been having the same problem for a while now. Players turn into Astrid and Hiccup at random times. It's quite strange!
