[Jul 31, 2015] Current known bugs and work arounds

Over the last few weeks we have been tracking and working on a number of issues that players have advised us of issues and bugs.


Pet disappearance bug
Bug
A sudden drop in the number of pet bags, deleting pets that were in the bags that were removed

Cause
Most of the complainants used the + button atop the pet bags prior to loss (6 of the reports) , however a small number have reported on leaving the upper instances (FHOF, HRD) as being last known action prior to disappearance.

Workaround or Fix
The + button will be removed in a future update, but players are asked not to use if for the foreseeable future. If your pets disappear and you did not press the + button, please ticket immediately with the last known actions you took.


Alexander issues

[Jul 25, 2015] Lag Support

It has been made increasingly aware that since some of the rule changes a number of people have been suffering from lag and severe peaks of lag at certain points/areas in the game. To aid and assist you all better, we need a collation of data from those effected by the lag so we can help find/narrow down the cause and find out why not everyone is effected.


OK to collate this is the information we need... in Email (email addresses at the bottom of the post).

  • Where are you when spikes occur?
  • What is the server time when spikes appear most?
  • Are you in an area with a large amount of people during spikes?
  • Are certain instances more prone to spikes, whether single or party?
  • Can you attribute the spikes to your own connection? (check for returning packets, don't load a webpage)

These rule out in game reasons for lag

  • Country of origin:
  • your IP address (can be seen at http://ip4.me):
  • Internet service provider:
  • Is you ISP Mobile, cable, phoneline or other:
  • Do you connect via Ethernet cable or wifi?
  • Operating system:
  • Last known update of the Operating system:
  • And Firewall software you use:

These help find any issues that may occur on the computer, game client or ISP

Also run this program that shows us any pathing issues between your computer and the server.
(It does not fix the issue, its a route viewing program!)

  • Download, install and run this program: http://winmtr.net/download-winmtr/
  • When you see the open program it should look like this : http://prntscr.com/7p3yq2
  • As you can see to start it off you must set the host to fw2.ariagaming.net
  • Press start and let it run. Make a coffee because this can take up to 10-15 mins to complete. After that, stop it.
  • Once its finished/stopped click the "export to HTML" - watch where the file goes!!!!!



You can send the result file and the question answers to piacere at ariagaming.com AND fyyre at ariagaming.com

I suggest you send it with the subject line "Lag data"

Also useful is if you have a program like Overwolf or Bandicam and can note your FPS variations in certain areas/instances as well
