This is not a ticket, because two tickets have already been submitted and no action has been taken as of now. IMC employees already have all the information they need to correct the bug, and this post is just to make public the fact.
Last GTW, LIMIT seized Salvia Forest 6:58 server time. At 7 PM, we received the “Victory” message. A few seconds later, the channel crashed. Then, a few moments later, when the GTW results should be available through the world map, Salvia Forest was shown as “not seized”. To put the icing on top, at 9 PM server time, we receive the server announcement of the GTW results:
Genar Field: not seized
Aqueduct Bridge Area: not seized
Baron Allerno: not seized
Nuoridin Falls: not seized
Sventimas Exile: not seized
Salvia Forest: LIMIT guild
What?? Well… This is not the first time a guild “loses a feud” because of channel crashes and, unfortunately, I suspect it will not be the last either. But it’s been more than 48 hours since the issue occurred and still there’s no solution to be seen.
Now, we need to do Boruta’s guild quest. And we, “officially”, have no territory. We mobilize tens of people to the GTW to have the server crash on our faces. Now we are going to the quest with no certainty of the rewards we will receive.
This is very frustrating, because it shows the lack of respect from the company running the game for its customers. Every single week we have unbearable lag/desync and channel crashes during GTW and nobody cares to do anything. Every single game content made by 20+ players is basically impossible for the game client to handle if you’re not using addons and/or running the game on a supercomputer-liquid-nitrogen-refrigerated. And that’s the way the most tryhard players are treated. I can only imagine if were a newcomer, actually starting to play now on the Season server, if I would have any reason to keep playing TOS instead of the new game of the month. But new costumes and equipments that take months of regular gameplay to acquire keep coming…
