Why is it down?

Can anyone explain to me why exactly the game is broken right now? Something about a broken card? So, bad programming essentially? Have the devs said anything?

How do I tell what server I'm on? Will I have to start over if I switch servers?

Why is the server down? Because the company is incompetent and does not know how to maintain their own game, nor do they care. All they care about is money.

The game, mods and company are all s hit.

There is a known card which, when played, essentially causes the server to stop communicating between server side and client side. Some functions still work like basic GUI options, but basically things that would normally need to call the server in a "routinely" manner. The problem is a known one, the devs apparently cannot fix it, but since no one knows if the problem will ever be fixed, whenever it is played, issues happen.

They can't compensate for the downtime, because that will make people abuse the card for compensation. But they can't remove the card because then whales will complain. So the only thing they can do is basically just hope that no one who has the card uses the card.

They could fix it. The crash including lelith is caused by the same mechanics as the one caused by dale and could be fixed by either giving arctic barrier to lelith or removing rhialla, which maybe should be considered to prevent crashes with future cards and also restore a little bit of balance in this game. Lets be real rhialla brought nothing good to this game. She was included in every game crashing combo (howling gail, dale darkblade, lelith hesper) and every game balance breaking combos (11th hour towahli, shield ward spam (especially with raziel/calculina)).

I dont know why it takes so long, the issue has been reported for so long already and the fix should be knöwn and has been reported too. I wonder if its gamigo not forwarding it to the devs or if its just the devs not wanting to change the card.

Ars, apparently the problem is 3 cards in conjunction, not 1 card (Hesper, Salaine and Rhalia). Besides, the whole "apparently they cannot fix it" is just an excuse to show they they won't. I remember reading that Dale was giving Arctic Barrier (as well as Nimble) due to... complications (it was in the forum). So where's the excuse this time? If there is a fault when it comes to Hesper and other cards, then the obvious thing to do would be to fix it when we know that they can.

Also, about whales complaining about Hesper being removed, think about what happened to Pan.

Yeah, using Lelith by herself causes no problem. I use her in every deck I have. It's the combo of Lelith/Rihalla or Lelith/moon or Lelith/Riverseer. I was told Salaine has to be on the field as well, to bust the server, but..... she does not.

That's why the whole "sanction the players who use Lelith" argument is stupid. If no one from the game is going to tell us the combo that breaks the server, I'm not sure how we're responsible.

That's not comparable. Pan was a free card. They just gave people the resources back, problem solved. Lelith was 100 EUR recharge card.

That's actually a good point. The Trojan packets were free (of gold) unless you bought them via the AH. Hmm, I don't even know what a good compensation would be. I mean, I doubt they can (or would) refund the card. It would mean they would have to calculate each currency and how many of a card people bought, so they would need to be a record of them. Not sure if I am overlooking something. Alenka, if they would, or could, do some sort of compensation for if they removed it (or we get asked to extract them), what would be a good even comp?

At the end of the day, it isn't fair. The people essentially paid for for a card that breaks the game when used with another type. It's like buying bootleg things, basically.

Also, Namii, Hesper + Riverseer does not break the game (I should know as I used them both).

They could remove Lelith and let ppl pick another recharge card of choice as replacement. That way they wouldnt have to refund any money.

Interesting. I was under the impression Lelith + any card that keeps her alive. I can vouch for the Lelith + Rihalla because I did an oops on that one.

Also, I don't know that Layla is comparable. She's a small recharge. Lelith was a super store card - so 8k/30k. I would not consider that a fair compensation.

I'm not sure what the answer is, but it's getting frustrating that it still hasn't been resolved.

Just 2 more weeks. Removing Rhialla will fix this issue and prevent possible future issues.

Has anybody noticed how fast the game loads while all functions are down, though?
