Cant attack a player taking settlement
« on: January 10, 2017, 10:10:52 AM »
http://mightandfealty.com/en/actions/take


So the character http://mightandfealty.com/en/character/view/6915 is taking my settlement and I can oppose him but not engage him as he doesn't appear on the list for initiate battle.


He is in the settlement and his history reads that he was recently beheaded so not sure how he is taking my settlement.


Can anyone look into that for me please?

I need to know what character you're trying to attack him with please.

And, ideally, which settlement.

That's fine.

The reason you can't attack him is because you don't have any soldiers (if I'm doing my SQL queries right).

The ability to attack others without you yourself having soldiers was removed when people started abusing it to keep larger forces from moving, if I recall correctly.

Andrew I can engage several other characters but not this one.  I am playing around with militia in the village to slow down the TO but having troops have never affected this.  You have looked at a snapshot where I have no soldiers and so I have added soldiers to the character again.


Still not able to see this character in the initiate combat list.


ITS LIKE ITS A GHOST CHARACTER.

He appears to be dead, no one appears to be conducting any actions against that settlement, and you appear to still be it's lord.

He's disappeared.  Andrew, im not in the business of just fucking you around, I loved this game from day one and someone is playing outside the rules.  Im no tech expert but surely you can check Acc ID and IP address against the action.  If they stopped because od this post then they are on the inside and know how it works

The fact that you are incredulous tells me to be wary of your contribution.

The  noble is no longer around.  Guys, dont treat me like a frigging idiot, you all see the connections behind the screen so if this character has stopped carrying out a TO then you can see it.  Tell us whats happening please?

I'm not being incredulous, I'm asking a question. If a character who is dead is taking your estate, that's something I need to know, because it's a bug that needs fixing.

If someone who was taking your estate killed their character because you spawned 6 character to support you and make the taking time to finish something ridiculous, that means they didn't feel like fighting you over it and figured it'd be easier to just reroll the character. This is a thing that happens, and is not something I'm concerned about.

If they stopped because of this post, that means they read the forum, which is linked from the game, and doesn't really get all that many posts meaning reading the few new posts a day isn't all that hard to believe.

Unfortunately, by the time I got on my computer, i couldn't see the situation that was the issue. There are however a number of reasons you wouldn't be able to attack someone: not being in interaction range, being on opposite sides of the wall, and not having any soldiers to attack them with are a few of the reasons.

The reason the noble is no longer around and why the vanished is beacuse the player of them killed them off. It's an action that any player can do at any time.

That said, the person who was controlling the other character has an account that's almost as old as your own, and has been playing, judging off their character creation times, probably the entire length of the game almost, so I expect they know the game pretty well and figured it probably just wasn't worth their time.

Also, the character that was taking your estate, recently beheaded someone else. He was not himself beheaded and a member of the living dead. And no one is calling you an idiot or thinking you are as much. As far as I can see, there are no pending actions against that estate, your character is the lord of it, so there's nothing more for me to go off of.

LOL...i didnt mean to suggest you were an idiot or anyone else was.  There was definately a bug there because he was taking the settlement.  I had 24 soldiers and couldn't engage.  I set them to militia to slow down the takeover and moved multiple characters in to oppose.  He was there but no-one could engage him so im simply suggesting it's a ghost player...ie it's somehow not flagging up in the usual way :)


Please dont take my comments as offensive, simply trying to iron out the issues.
