It's probably happened to all of us: a battle event glitches and the ship won't leave.  Now, if you're fortunate (or maybe unfortunate, depending), the battle will end with you alone in the server, so you take home all the loot and glory of a solo win. 

This thread is to commemorate these occasions. Post your screenshots of the scoreboard, empty except for your name and impressive score!  Maybe mention which dragon's faithful firepower allowed you to transcend the developers expections, and emerge the one and only victor from the battlefield rife with the dangers of Outcast arrows, Berserker boulders, strange unexplained explosions, and always the ship of instantaneous doom!  (Am I getting overdramatic here?  Probably.  Do I care?  No.  Not in the slightest. XD)

 

I'll begin with this shot, just taken several minutes ago. The dragon upon whose wings I was borne to victory in this particular case was Scaleshift, a young male Changewing that I only recently trained.  How come no one talks about how great Changewings are for battles?

That's impressive

I'll take that into account if that glitch happens to me. How long did it take, approximately?

Thanks! :D

Actually, I can't really tell you that.  See, once it becomes obvious that the glitch has happened, if there aren't many people in the server and it'll take a while to sink the ship, I'll turn control over to a program I wrote a while ago that repeatedly sends a keypress, and then go do something else for a while until I remember to check back to see how the battle's progressing.  In this case, I let it sit, firing continuously, for probably around an hour and a half. 

Interestingly, to actually end the battle, I had to change my target from the deck to the crow's nest.  When I checked in, I found the ship's health at zero, but still avive and still recieving 11 damage each shot.  It was only after I fired once at the crow's nest that the ship finally sunk.

 

P.S. If anyone wants to download my (not very user-friendly) keysender, I could supply a link.

Victory!

Victorious again! This was the 0800 CDT battle event.  Scaleshift again dealt most of the damage, but at the end, I switched to my most-recently trained dragon, Wildsun the Deathly Galeslash.  Together, we single-handedly defended the School.
