Heals stopped working, entire game super buggy

Question

Before I get to the main problem, lets cover some basic grounds

#1 I have played a number of your games but this is the only 1 I play on my phone.  It is by far, in my experience, your most unstable.

#2 This game has hundreds of bugs.  I don't think I have played a single session that didn't have some king of bug

#3  This game often freezes completely and I must close it out and restart it and/or reboot my phone to try to get it to even move.

#4  I never wanted to make a sign on on your forums.  I just wanted to report bugs, lots before, but there is absolutely no easy straightforward way to do so on the internet.  Maybe there is a way through my phone, but I doubt it.  I don't like writing on the phone for good reason, easy to type on a computer...but why do I need to give you my email address etc. etc???  Why isn't there a place to simply submit bugs?  Give me a break, this game has hundreds of bugs- and no way to report so NO WONDER ITS COMPLETELY UNSTABLE

#5 I play the game because its fun and interesting but your delivery is crap.  It's like a really good soup served at a restaurant filled with roaches and filth and sometimes there is a fly floating in your soup.  Let's fix the bugs before making more content PLEASE.  Don't be Ubisoft.

 

 

THE BIG BUG-

 

Sporatically heals stop working completely.  Cure, Mass cure, major cure, healing staff, shaman ally.  None of them heal.  THey get used, ask for recharge check or get recharged/discarded etc.- but cards are NEVER moved from discard to the deck.

This bug SUCKS>  Makes you lose completely if you were using any kind of healing as your strategy for that quest.  THis is not cool.  ESPECIALLY with quests that make you Banish cards to close and try to win....

 

This is like bugs that tweak or screw with checks, crashing on checks that get made, making you take them again.  There are a few bugs that work in the players favor, but most like this one break the game and make you lose.

 

It's really really really annoying.  Worst case scenario I try to get my money back...which I can't,....but if the game constantly bugs and crashes and has bugs that make you lose...I can at least complain etc.  Most likely I just quit...

 

OR you guys could pull your heads out of your butt and work on the bugs NOT MORE CONTENT>  Fix the unstability PLEASE.  This game is hanging on by a thread in terms of stability.  FIX IT.  This bug at least, it is a complete game killer.

Personally, I would prefer that members of the forum avoid policing the forums. It doesn't help any and engenders bad feelings. If you have issues with a person, take it up with them personally, not in a public forum. If you have really serious issues with a post, use the report button. The forum has moderators after all.

 

As to expressing anger in these forums, I see that as entirely valid (as long no names are called and reasonable propriety is observed). I'm not a big fan of looking at the positive side of every issue - my experience is that it tends to mask real problems that need to be addressed.

 

Mind you, it's not as though OBS have a high hit rate with responding to posts - currently less than 1 in 10. So what's the value in posting a metric tonne of information if you have little to no expectation that OBS will even have the curtesy to acknowledge the post - let alone actually fix the bug? There's a limit to how much "community support" can really do here (other than making us all - misguidedly - feel good that we're doing something).

Glad to hear you don't think posts should be personal -- I appreciate that, since you've directed several at me, and made two sarcastic posts on my latest thread.

 

The Obsidian developers don't show up on many threads, so when they do -- like on this thread -- it behooves us all to be as helpful as possible. That's what I'm saying.

 

The Paizo Pathfinder Adventure Card Game forum has a marvelous camaraderie. We're not just consumers, we're contributors. It'd be cool if we could foster the same spirit here.

You can also PM forum moderators if you're not sure if something should be reported or not.

I think some frustration is understandable; it's seen in all forums I've been a part of when bugs have been encountered.

As I understand it the PACG ap has ten people on the team and only two that I've seen checking the forums - at least to post. We don't know if anyone has logged issues without posting. With a patch pending the team may be focusing on getting the patch out rather than posting here.

 

I think we can at best just post as much information about bugs we encounter and wait for Obsidian to check the threads and fix the issues.

Not quite what I meant by "personal". Directed at you isn't the same as "personal" . Not sure that I agree with your approach to "visitations from above", my belief is that the roles are reversed: OBS should be darn grateful that we collect and share as much data as we do and for such scant return on our investment. Instead, they largely fail to acknowledge our posts, let alone fix the bugs.

 

I don't come to this forum for "camaraderie", I have no interest in a "community" that sets the terms of its membership or requires me to be a "good boy" and not complain: I come here to report issues with a (dwindling) expectation that something good (in terms of the game) will come of my efforts.

Good call!

Indeed.

I can assure you that people do post without using the forum - I've done it myself (and received no response, so I post here so at least others can get a head's up). I sure hope that OBS are up to their collective necks in fixing bugs (not creating more bug-riddled features), otherwise there is no excuse for their lack of presence on the forum.

The Paizo Pathfinder Adventure Card Game forum has a marvelous camaraderie. We're not just consumers, we're contributors. It'd be cool if we could foster the same spirit here.

Thats been my take on things as well.  The Pathfinder world had some of the nicest, most laid-back players compared to other RPGs or CCGs.  Sometimes it gets lively debating the rules, but frankly, those arguments can usually go either way without drastically changing how enjoyable the game can be.

 

As far as the Tech Support area goes, yes, of course it's not the poster's responsibility to be an unpaid QA intern.  But the reality remains that there will always be a lag between discovery and patch.  The more we can do to describe and isolate the issue, the better the chance of reducing patch lag, and the better the chance of finding workarounds in the meantime.  Users aren't playing forum cop just to ensure proper bug reports get filed; chances are, they're responding because they actually care.

 

That's the camaraderie and community spirit @elcoderdude is talking about.  Nobody has to care, but some do.  The community doesn't release patches, but there's no reason it can't help find interim ways for users to overcome or avoid the bugs that make the app unenjoyable.

And you are certainly entitled to feel that way. My experience on this forum (and Interplay and Black Isle Studios previously) is that there are points were the Devs have to choose between being responsive to the community and dealing with issues that have been identified (and trying to replicate those that have not).

 

I'm sure they are grateful for the posts by users here, whether they have the time to say it for each post or not. Or even to acknowledge they've logged a bug for the I reports/testing. Your mileage may vary, of course.

There is nothing in the forum rules that says you can't complain. We are only asked to not post material that is abusive, defamatory, libelous, harassing, hateful, obscene, profane, vulgar, or illicit; from spamming, from posting discriminatory remarks or from impersonating a real person (and a few other provisions)

 

I believe that leaves plenty of room to register complaints, to be negative over development of the game or speed of fixes.

OK, I shall continue as I have then. I certainly have no intention of exceeding the parameters that you describe! I may be brusque on occasion(s), but I try to avoid downright rudeness.

 

And yes, believe it or not, I have no personal animosity toward OBS Devs: I'm sure that they are doing the best that they can with the resources that they have available. Which is why I criticise, in the hope that it gives them ammunition to use in discussions with the layer of OBS management the we have zero access to. You know, the bean-counters who can hide away from the consequences of decisions by not being in the front line so that their decisions are "strategic and for the good of the company" (read "short-term bottom line").

 

Still, that's enough of a thread de-rail. Back to logging bugs and complaining :biggrin:

Thanks for grokking me, EG. The card gamers, at least, who come to these boards bring a passion for these games (card and digital). We aren't buying appliances here. We might as well help each other enjoy this pastime, which is, after all, fun.

OK, I thought we were done with this. Apparently not. And who is snarking now eh? "the card gamers, at least" WTF does that mean? Some sort of elite cadre of players that excludes certain people by sly inference? I call BS on that! Great way to foster the spirit  of camaraderie that you wish to engender. Not! (FWiW, I have a complete first printing copy of PACG and am - mainly - a player of physical board games, can I please join your elite group, can I? can I? pretty please? Pah!)

We're done with it, as long as you have the last word, eh?

 

Not sure why it matters to you, since you don't want "camaraderie".

 

I won't try to teach you about community. The dwarves are for the dwarves.

It appears this thread has run its course; the issue has been reported for the developers to see and if new players encounter it they can see this on a search and then start a new thread to provide more information on how they encountered it.
