Operation Permadeath... I mean Permafrost


(Alexa Ender) #1

While I was working on the Operation Permafrost event I encountered a rather unusual issue that I have been unable to get a straight answer on whether this is intended or not. Upon activating the west acceleration gate in my venture I would go into the warp animation, and when I would land and the warp animation would end I would be in my pod. The kill mail from my most recent loss would show that I had been killed by an invisible cloud. The first time this happened I considered bad luck, and went back to refit. Upon my return the same thing happen again a second time. After this time I was pretty confused by the whole situation so I did not bother with it for the rest of the night, and figured it would work itself out after downtime. Well I went back the next day, and lost another Venture under the same scenario. I should have recorded it but I was not expecting this to happen again. I grabbed a screenshot instead, and when I looked at the screenshot I realized that I was over 1000km away from where the other Venture at the site was at. I opened a support ticket and after some back and forth I have not gotten anywhere expect being told that I should make a forum post on the issue. So i have come here looking for answers as the whole issues seems like a bug. So, has anyone else ran into this issue and where you able to survive the damage from the cloud? Was this intended to be part of the event?

The logs, they reveal… nothing.
I’ve yet to see CCP fix a bug in an ongoing event - let alone respond to inquiries after an event has concluded. Best of luck, but I think you’ll have more success making an offering to Bob…
