    Exclamation Merry Mayhem Annihilation Bug

    Because these never seem to get the attention they deserve, I'm making this public in order to try to get MA to provide an expedited response.


    Upon entering the Mayhem Annihilation Instance and beginning my hunt, I noticed my timer for the run was not ticking down.

    However, I was still gaining points for the mayhem mob towards my point total.

    I finished my 1 hour hunt as I was on buffs, and my timer remained the same upon exiting as before I entered the instance. Point total became paused.

    In addition, the instance title showed the instance as being a Practice instance and not competition instance, and another player was able to enter.

    Re-entering either practice and actual mayhem instances, I was unable to reproduce this effect.

    Please see screen shots for the bug/glitch.

    I started with 11829 pts, and ended with 12686.

    This is extremely abusable if encountered by any competitors, as it essentially gives a baseline of an additional 4-5k points, plus any additional bonus points garnered, making the player easily get into top placement if they hunt the entire 5 hours of the instance.

    I also do not think this bug is new, I believe it has never been fixed or has been resurrected each new Mayhem event.





    I hope this get some attention that it deserves.

    When you reentered did you start it again to see if the timer was actually keeping time and it was just a display bug?

    This alone should be enough to invalidate the event, who's going to trust the current points of anyone?

    Seriously MA...

    Yeah I just checked. It is not a display bug. Timer went down as normal when i hit the statue, and now sits at 7 hours 12 min and 18 seconds.

    So it is not a display bug.

    I think it must have something to do with glitching into the practice instance versus the actual competition instance, when you try to go into the regular mayhem instance.

    If MA is smart enough, time spent in instance should be logged and easily trackable if someone spent more time than 15h in the instance. It was the case previously that players had to track their own time, hope they didn't remove time tracking from their side...
    take my advice, i dont`t use it anyway!

    Kind of difficult since:

    1) Scores don't post until timer goes all the way down and
    2) You might not even notice this being an issue while you are hunting...

    Good man for posting this...I do believe we've seen the same issue reported mayhem after mayhem.

    Followed usually by a quick update, where most people assumed it was fixed, and people still getting insane amounts of points in cats within their 1st run the next season.

    I would almost guarantee at least one player is aware of what triggers this and abuses it, they have had years to perfect it.


    The problem with MA keeping track on the time inside the instance, is that obviously...they do not know how to properly code such a notion.
