PVP Skirmish Squad Rank Bug

1. Description of the problem, what happened.

Squad mate of the squad leader does not have the ship rank restriction applied to their ships. Squad leader has rank 11 / 12 ships equipped, his squad mate has ships as low as rank 3 equipped.


2. What did you expected to happen.

The squad mate should have the same restrictions applied as the squad leader


3. The conditions during the situation.

Normal PvP Skirmish


4. Further details on the issue.


5. Frequency of occurrence.

Seen this a few times, here is one account where I saved the logs. It is the last game in the log files


6. Logs + [screenshots](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/18799-how-to-takepost-screenshots/) or a video (Including a description of the issue, where to and how to reproduce it)





Just squad up, the leader has highest rank ship of 15, squad mate has lowest rank ship for rank 1, when entering a match, squad mate will be able to use the rank 1 ship, it will not be greyed out.


7. If possible, the time when it happend. In this case we will be able to look more closely to the server logs. Also mention your time zone.

Unsure when, it will be in the log files below (last match in the log files)

I thought this was known. It is the good old “troll platoon” effect.


I have found this sometimes since the last patch.

Have not seen a thread with this in on either forum since the restriction was implemented

Yeah, I know. What I meant is, did anybody expect this won’t happen?

idk, i assume it shouldn’t

Doesn’t the patch note say:


“Pilots can no longer use ships, weaker than their most high-ranking ship. In game modes with a finite number of ships, such ships are considered destroyed and inaccessible to the pilot.”


The only game mode like that would be Beacon Capture. The screenshots are from Team Battle. Why is it expected that the rank restrictions would apply here?


You can’t use those ships in any game mode. In capture the beacon they are just unavailable as well, so they count as destroyed ships.

We will fixed it later
