the timer runs out and the game freezes

Postby riversongmlp » Mon Jul 29, 2019 11:56 am

First time on the forum and I don`t know if this is the right place to post this but I have been having a glitch in the game. Sometimes whenever the timer runs out, the game just stops, some times I can write in the frozen chat but idk if anyone can see it, and most of the time I can write in my will but idk if it updates. I have to leave the game without people knowing why. It just happened again when I was jailor

Are you connecting to the live verison of the game, or the PTR?
Usually when the client freezes it means that your game lost connection ot the server and thus didn't any signal to update.

I tend to write small stories into my will and dislike Forgers and Janitors for removing them.

If you see a Grim Reaper called 'Zoroark', know that you might have encountered me.

This happens to me, like, once a month or so. I'll just be in the middle of a game, and...just like the original poster said, the game will just freeze and never move forward into the next phase of the game and I have no idea what went wrong. I didn't lose internet connection, either. So, you're not the only one this happens to.

The flash client does not alert you when it disconnects and even a second disconnect could be enough to "kill" the game.
Moving thread as I belevie its not about the PTR.

This has been happening to me. I have been freezing in game. No particular role and it is becoming very annoying. I have had the lobby freeze twice now and I have very good wifi.

Wifi can still be unstable in some ways, the game doesn't like disconnects, even if they last only for a second, it could be enough to cause a disconnect, which is symbolized by a phase not going to transfer further.
