Buying Sheilds Bug

Post by CrazyChef » Fri Oct 02, 2009 8:10 pm

Today on Battle Royal, Crazy Chef is my name there, around 11 am est I was invading after completing along cleaning run... after the first land on a col I went to resheild... someone was chatting with me and when I landed the second time I realized that I must have forgoten to RS as I was distracted, so I resheilded and went bk to invading , only to be blown into a million pieces and loosing 140mil ( as the reimbusment went into space seeing i had 100 mil on me from cleaning for 2 days) Turns out when you go to buy sheilds it goes to 0 sheilds when you go to the buy button.... sadly I didnt know about the bug to look for it and others there told me it had happened to them . Maybe fix this and possibly reimburse me ? I bet it wont happen, but I can try ;)

Wow, that's terrible way to find the bug.

The problem applies to buying anything in ports - cargo hold, resources, and shields. This appears to be similar to an ancient bug, where about every 5 minutes the port sliders would go back to "1", but now it seems to happen far more frequently. My guess is it has something to do with refreshing the prices.
