    I understand that it is possible to target a mobile in the center(ish) tile of a keep with/using fire bombs (oil cloth + liquor container) from outside by another player thus, damaging and/or killing the mobile.

    After reviewing the video I am able to replicate. I have never heard of this before but... I also hear this has been a known bug but I cannot find where it has been reported?

    Considering that, will no longer replicate on the live server since that would knowingly be abuse of a known bug.

    Someone definitely killed me in the middle of my fort... so I’m assuming it was this?

    This has to be a newer bug that hasn't made its way around the community yet. I've been sitting idle in my CY for weeks and nothing. If this bug is easy to replicate then it needs to be fixed before people really start to abuse it.

    I am aware of the problem and it has already been fixed and ready for the next patch.

    However I made the mistake of posting the fix in a general sense in our development forum and players reverse engineered my vague fix into a trick to house kill players. This will be the end of us posting patch notes ahead of time for player discussion sadly

    That said you are still safe in the center 3x3 of a keep, but other spots are less safe until this is patched. I have yet to trace anyone being killed in the center as the range of the item is 10 tiles.

    Thank you!


    And a huge thank you to @Pax Romain and @Balgami for taking a moment from other server development to visit our little server and help suss out this terrible bug.

    Here's to future "challenging" harrower events!

    Very well said. Hopefully abuse of this bug comes with repercussions.

    I only got to do like 3 before Telamon cracked down on me. I am not gonna lie, I am honored to be included. My only regret is getting the attention of the only smart guy in SOF, this would go unnoticed for years if it wasn't for you :mad:

    I just HAVE to know since you have admitted to doing this... What exactly is the point of people doing this? I truly would like to understand what benefit you and other's get by killing house killing people.

    I did it because I wanted to make SOF salty and regret thinking they are the top dog just because the decent players took a break. And it worked wonderfully as can be seen here.

    Ah gotcha.. I guess if you are sworn enemies, I guess I get it.

    Just didn't understanding finding my character dead who isn't tied to anybody. I was just wondering the point in killing my guy. I was wondering if there was some benefit that I didn't know about.

    I wonder what your Guild Masters think about your forum post... @scuba @Evil Dead @Crunk Juice @UrinalCake all decent men. Other than Crunk all played with us in good old days and probably as decent human beings feel disgusted about your post...

    This is no trash talk forum either, people are talking about server problems here… I advise you to behave and be more civilized if you can... Racism is a dangerous poison which will burn you down in the end. Take this as an advise from me.

    We've seen bunch of different problems in this server but your stereotype has never existed long… I hope that was salt pouring from your butt and it would cure...

    As opposed to punitively excluding the 95% of loyal, non-exploiting players how about just excluding easily exploitable information from the pre-posted info?
