A few minutes ago today when we fought against DNO in the dreadnought battles, our NASA wing encountered a critical bug in this game. A rather strange series of events happened as we were playing the game, which culminated in the game server being unable to determine who was the winner of the dreadnought battle.
I will first start with the strange events that occured in the match:
The server chosen for us for this battle was a US server, even though DNO is a Russian wing and I set my server region to Europe (as I was wing leader).
During the match, _all of the players _in the match experienced severe lag and packet loss, for several minutes at a time. Both the NASA and DNO wings could not fight for a few minutes, as all of us were experiencing lag spikes and severe packet loss.
This is virtually impossible to occur to me and thecritz under normal conditions, because we are both US players with an average ping of <50ms. However, _something _happened that caused all of us to experience this lag.
After the game, the matchmaker was unable to determine the winner of the sector. I have provided screenshots of this strange event to let you determine the nature of this bug.
We decisively won the game (and our logs and screenshots indicate as much), however the server could not determine who was the winner. As such, the sector turned NEUTRAL. This should not have happened. We should have become the new owners of the sector, but I hypothesize that the strange lag spikes have played a factor resulting in this result.
First of all, I would like to request the sector ownership be changed to The NASA. We won the battle, yet we were denied ownership. Second of all, I would like to request an investigation into this issue, seeing as this is affecting all players on the server in addition to the persistent game world.
Thank you for your time. Let me know if there is anything else that is needed from me, or my wingmates.
Attached are the screenshots and logs from me and Catbox of this critical bug.
