    Default Weirdest, most troublesome errors that have happened in your mmorpgs? (Riiiift!!!)

    Rift is currently having an issue where ALL communication is impossible, as all chat channels are not working and neither is mail.
    I just logged off as I figure that defeats the purpose of a game if you can't communicate. :/
    Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

    What are some errors that made it into your games that basically made the game unplayable?
    Errors that affect everyone in the game and made you have to log out and wait for a dev to respond? D:

    Once had a game where no matter what I killed, it sent all loot to the very first mob I killed(corpse never despawned) so I had to keep going back to it to collect things.

    Dear god, that sounds super frustrating!
    How far did you get from that first corpse while you hunted?

    The world bosses that spawned underground in the first Lime Odyssey Alpha on Aeria Games. They could one-hit any player, from directly below them. (30+k damage.) How do we know it was world bosses? Well, there was a stair that was not clipping properly with players. So when one player fell through the stair and to the bottom of the world... they saw the world bosses. Some of the hitboxes for the Muris Starting Area in the first alpha were non-existant, so you could jump off the floating continent.) Also, in the first alpha, one of the NPC gather cat things wasn't spawned in the right place, so I could never complete a specific quest. (Also an herb gather point was spawned on an unreachable hill near that NPC that wasn't there.) This NPC was fixed in the second alpha of course.

    Also, fireworks would crash any clients within the immediate area of the firework. (IE: Render Range, regardless of you looking at it.) GM Clients were also affected. This one was in the second Alpha I believe though.

    In White Knight Chronicles before the first major patch and DLC Mission additions... if you entered a person's town along with them (only you two in it.) Then you traded items in a specific way, the item would duplicate. You could do this for any item. This was patched quite quickly.

    In White Knight Chronicles II / I, when the guild towns were added, I could not enter guild towns at all, even on the WKC II story path. I also could not enter player towns that were a part of a guild or who completed the entire story. (It would black screen of death, and I'd have to force restart the console.)

    risk your life 2 had a major mem leak that was never fixed so it would crash a shit time while playing. on my old pc it crashed during a few hours of play at least 5 times. some private servers tried to fix it but it had to do with something in the hardcode of the game i think? if i remeber right

    Either would be the Corrupted Blood incident that happened on WoW years ago or the many bugs Dynasty Warrior online had with every new update.

    Vindictus, lag bugs that made Fiona's shield not work.

    Fiona being the character who relies on her shield working to such a degree that unless you are uber pro, you are better off being dead if you can't use it for whatever reason.

    Same in TERA with both Zerk and Lancer. Can't block? You're either better off running, or dead. (Unless you've got like Visionmaker or higher and whatnot.)
