Spellbreaker full counter visual bug

Druh.1092Druh.1092 Member ✭✭

Please fix the bug where full counter is up all of the time in pvp it makes it impossible to tell when to stop attacking i get this in wvw not as much in spvp any more though but still it is a op bug on the spellbreakers behalf to not know when to disengage from fc

Comments

  • This x1000. I've seen it more times than I can count in the last 2 weeks. Spellbreakers are already annoying enough to fight without having the visual for full counter up for several minutes in a row. I just saw it again in my last match 5 minutes ago. Please fix this. Every duel with with an SB has been a nightmare because I never know when I can actually attack safely.

    You can tell if Full Counter is really up by the character animation. The character raises his arms near the chest (Like a fighting guard stance) while they are channeling FC. This is all we can do until this stupid bug get fixed.

    Aye, it's a bit broken to see, not sure what triggers the bug though.

    Thanks for the tip!
    I'll look for that.
    Still impossible to notice on teamfights, but at least can help in 1x1 :)

  • Not holding my breath for them to fix it. Dragonhunter's walls are still invisible, and it's been two years.

  • Another night, another SB opponent with FC visuals on for like 1/2 the match.

  • Very annoying. Needs a fix ASAP (I was expecting the fix for this with the last balance patch..)

    Encountered this bug as well. Fix would be nice.

    I like how gw2 pvp has a quality of a pirate server at best. Makes me happy that I've uninstalled the game. When I want to play again, I just go to the forums and see that the game is in almost the same state I have left it. I even registered here just to be able to thumbs up the posts I agree with.

    Because its the same as allways, 5 of 10 will lose a match. This 50% allways tend to cry a river.

    I dare to say that any non-scourge is "crying" right now about scourges, that is definitely more than 50%. Have you seen wvw forums? Where does your formula fit in?

    WvW is the same logic! The population of servers is dictated by the transfers of winning-teamjoiner. If a server is hyped, same kind of player who taking the most cheesy class in spvp moving to it. Allways, doenst matter which game or gamemode, same kind of discussions all over again.

    You cant fix humans.

    This only works if both teams have a 50% chance to win. Not when you have the most amount of scourge on your team? Is that what you are saying?

    Sure, but you can fix balance. People always find the easiest way out. But this is the CAUSE not the REASON for this messed up situation. I know that Anet makes it seem like it's so hard to come up with a bug fix patch once every 3 months but it's not. There are better free to play games out there that do this job better. Remember how bad Diablo 3 was and then some guys make a game in their basement and made it free? It became so popular, people forgot about Diablo 3 which they have waited for years!!! That game name is Path of Exile btw...
    What I'm saying is: it is possible to fix the balance in a game even if this is a f2p game. And gw2 community deserves at least mostly bug-free balanced game. Or else I'm sure someone will come up with a better game, using the same basic mechanics as gw2.

    Gw2 is something like a f2p-game. I never played any game on a high standart like this and had not to spend money over and over again. Im under 100 Euros and i got a full paket of entertainment so far. Show me a better game! And in all these quotet games the forums shows the same discussion. Its mmo`s and pvps nature.

    Sure, if they want, they can balance something around, but at end you get another monster by a new meta. These balance works not for games with so much options, the player himself need to adapt the acutal situation and find something usefull. Like now more rangers finding a way into matches to simply shoot scrouges down, the next thing are classes/builds countering these rangers. Its a circle of life. The only thing anet needs to do is killing the broken specs instant.

    The better game hype is still the same demon. Do you see any great games? New ones? Older ones? Play it, not one will hold you! I remember myself years ago, people said age of conan will be the new pvp thing. In forum, in the game, in the raid, everyone and his dog was telling about how it will better and they stop to play the current game. Guess what? They allways turned back.

    Again: Play the game, not the system. If you have fun, enjoy it, if not, play something else? Why you should do something you not like? I dont get these kind of thinking.

    I like pvp. I play LoL now. Uninstalled gw2 some time ago. Still visit forums to find out that the game is still pirate quality. Stops me from thinking about returning. But still people should at least have a descend product for their MONEY that they PAID? Why should a game have monsters??? Circle of life? Are you kidding me? People can't enter pvp for DAYS and Anet can't fix that. Stuff like full counter visual bug is STILL BROKEN! Circle of life? May be its just laziness? Or something else?

    I played last 2 Weeks over 200 matches. I had no bugs, wasnt stacked, anything like this. If you believe everything written down in forum, well......
    I also had not the full counter bug. How u judge all of these problems if you uninstalled the game?

    Dont get me wrong, but i cant take you serious. Someone whos not playing the game cant really argue over the current state, sorry bro.

    It’s not just full counter it's many skills in the game, you can get guards constantly breathing fire, with the mace block up, mesmers with....stuff around them, I'll be honest I have no idea what it is but we called it the guys final form.

These season the only thing kills me are facetanking people 2 scrouges in teamfight by doing 0 damage and ofc downstate quicker than i can travel from close to mid. (player issue, whos just facetanking scrouges)

    I have them most nights, it's generally not so bad in WvW as it doesn't often happen on the enemy but it is very common to have a few of us running around with a visual bug each. What is worse in WvW is when everything becomes invisible which is linked to the amount of time you spend on a map, in PvP you're rarely there for 15mins so a lot of visuals get refreshed. However for me the most common bugs are full counter and mace block on guard which will usually be bugged after 10-20 uses, seems some skills are just prone to visual bugs.

    Yes, it takes a special kind of person t9 enjoy this games pvp. Glad we agreed on that. Have fun with your mission as well, my friend!

  • Just wanted to note another night of SB FC visual bug. Whole freaking match SB has the FC visuals on. While running around, while downed, while dead, and even on the winner's podium, just to rub salt in wounds. Please fix this BS on SB. It's literally every single night Anet.

    Guardian mace skill no 3 has been causing the exact same bug since launch(the visual and audio effects are permanently reproduced until you restart the game),and it still hasn't been fixed,so don't hold your breath on this one.

  • well the bug isnt that horrible in 1n1 situation but when it comes to fight multiple players it can be a reason to waste unnecessary defense cd.. idk why they still didnt fixed that..

    I have the full counter bug about one in three games (one in two on a bad day), but I never see dragonhunter walls anymore. EVER. They are always invisible. It is just obnoxious, especially since they claimed to have fixed it more than a year and a half ago.

    i just wanna die due to someone proccing the counter good game +1

  • revisiting this a month later - still not fixed... more annoying than the visual is the sound fx that accompanies it... stuck in wvw party with this annoying metal scratch like sound... constantly...

  • Funny thing this is getting abused all the time in spvp.

  • Felipe.1807Felipe.1807 Member ✭✭✭

    Yeah this is a annoying bug, it happens like 50% of the time when i am fighting Spellbreakers...but this bug have been in the game for ages, its not something new. It happens to any skill that have special visual effects or sounds tied to it....weapons like Warrior hammer and mace have this too, or guard mace and even renewed focus can give visual bug, ranger greatsword lead too, its funny to see a ranger with that bird flying inside of it...in conclusion, this bugs have been here since the start, its only now with Spellbreaker that they kind give you a edge on the fight, but honestly dont expect Anet to fix it.

  • This is just getting stupid, this bug has been here for so long and its a blatant issue for pvpers and wvw players alike yet you can fix bugs no one cares about but not the ones people actually are complaining about, FIX THE BUG do not make this bug last until the new expansion. though with Arena-nets track record there will no doubt be a new bug to replace the old one in less than a week.

  • Snapz.4702Snapz.4702 Member ✭✭

    At this point its not a bug but a feature. Learn the "hand raising" animation because Anet is surely not going to fix this or any other class spesific bugs

  • Mini Crinny.6190Mini Crinny.6190 Member ✭✭✭

    It's been around since PoF Beta, don't expect any fixes
