Followers Level Up BUG?!

    @DrakeLyon, I can tell you for certain than shunning and re-recruiting does not remove this bug.  Tried it.  Didn't work.  All he ended up with was a new vulnerability he never lost.

     

    If you're still curious, the OFP works exactly the same way as the normal pits when it comes to quitting out.  Only thing is, after you quit to the menu, you may find that you don't get drops anymore.  You can fix that by resetting.  What can I say?  I used the OFP to farm Reassignments prior to my restart.  I'll tell you though, the more I cheated the OFP, the more justified I felt in doing it.  They appeared to be rigged.  More Legendary opponents to get the first 2 wins than in 15 straight victories after my guy becomes Legendary?  You tell me.

     

    Joke's on me though.  All those guys I "saved" with those Reassignments are permanently stuck in the garrison due to this bug.

    Oops.  Should say *that* not *than* in the first line.

    Even if it worked, should we really have to be doing a workaround, just to see our Followers level up, properly?

    Let's do everything we can do to get the attention of the Dev's so we can them to fix this bug!

    No we shouldn't.  You're absolutely right.

     

    You know, maybe this is the tinfoil hat talking, but it occurs to me that it might be better for them if they can't recreate this problem.  Anybody else wonder how many of the followers from paid war chests were impacted by this glitch?  I know for a fact that it goes back to before the Market closed.  So how many people out there paid real money to buy Gold, then purchased War Chests only to receive followers in them that, unbeknownst to them, could not be improved?  I never got War Chests except from Spoils of War, and all my Gold earned from in game challenges went to gear chests, so I don't know if the Gold and Mithril War Chests were affected or not.  What if they were?  You pay real money with the understanding that what you're buying has a chance to get better, but it really doesn't.  That could be fraud.  If it's intentional, it's definitely fraud.  I'm no attorney, but that sounds like it could be the beginning of a lawsuit.  At the very least those folks would seem to be in line for refunds.  This glitch could end up costing Monolith a lot of money.  Maybe that's why we've heard so little lately.  Maybe they're too busy consulting with WB's lawyers trying to figure out how not to admit culpability.  You can't be culpable if it doesn't exist.  And if it can't be recreated, who's to say it actually existed in the first place?

    Let's just stay on topic, ok? The Market is ancient history.

    I have a good feeling, they will be able to reproduce the bug very easily, as long as the testers realize they MUST TEST ON GARRISON ORCS after they've deployed them.

    Can we maybe not dive into conspiracy theory please the last thing I want to do it have to remove this thread because of unsubstantiated claims about Monolith and WB games, can we stick to the issue at hand not create new ones that don't actually exist.

    Sorry.  I'm not given to conspiratorial thinking generally.  I'm just highly cynical when it comes to people and money.  Guess I got a bit carried away there.

    It's mostly my fault. I've sailed pretty close to the line, already with the way I have phrased things in this thread. Like I said, let's just stay on topic with our posts, and focus on the issue at hand like said and try not to run off the rails. Lol. 😉

    Well, hopefully we've provided enough info to get this fixed. Would sending our save files to the devs be of any assistance?

    that would probably help a good deal if you're able to. I'm assuming this is something that PC players could do as Xbox and PS4 probably don't have that capability to grab a save file. Personally I believe this might also just be a part of our Hydra IDs so you may want to add that in there if you're sending a report

    I don't know what's going to happen at this point. I've done everything I can possibly do. I've submitted bug reports with the link to my YouTube video included. I guess now, all we can do is wait. I just hope more people will submit their reports.

    Sadly I'm growing quite tedious waiting for this to get patched. I really hope they are taking this extra time to knock out several of the other bugs mentioned in the forum as well. If we can look forward to a sizable and badass update it'll be worth the wait for sure. I'll even start over from scratch to experience everything anew.

    I'm not even touching the game until it is fixed. I've spent many hours importing many orcs from SoM with the purpose of leveling them all. If they aren't going to change, along with many regular captains that I've had waiting to be deployed, there isn't much point in going through with my original plan. Genuinely hope something is able to be done about this.

    Monolith said they were done with "Content" updates. I'm assuming this means new stuff instead of fixing bugs. I really hope it's not like that and they're abandoning War to work on the third game. Shadow of Middle Earth (Copyrighted by moi)

    that definitely means they're only fixing bugs in this game. But that's alright if we can look forward to another Middle-earth game like this. The 3rd one will be awesome I'm sure

    I hope they fix this ASAP, people are dropping the game, faster than a manure farm

    So have we had any updates on what's going on? Is this still being looked into? Is it in the works? Or is it being ignored? Need to know because I desperately need it fixing and I don't want to level all my orcs to find that it's been fixed after I've leveled them. Should I hold out on doing it or is it not being looked at and I should just go for it?

    Thanks in advance :)

    No October update at all.  Hopefully that means they're working on a massive round of bug fixes and they're waiting to put them all out together rather than realease them piecemeal.  Once again, fingers crossed.

    I seriously hope so. At this point I'm simply waiting for that before I play again. I understand the psychology behind it now lol. I've gotten my hopes up.
