Getting stuck in walls while repairing

Shagaliscious.6281Shagaliscious.6281 Member ✭✭✭

So I have been noticing this a lot more recently. People getting stuck in walls when repairing the walls. It used to happen occasionally, now it seems to happen almost every time. Not sure if it's a result of a new update or what. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I've not noticed this on Apline or DBL, and I repair a lot during the matchups. Can you all confirm this is an EBG issue, or has it happened to any of you on the other borderlands?

    Got stuck in a clouding sm-door as as in the rumble of an opening wall.

    Inner hills wall is my common culprit. When defending or attacking. Someone catches me there.

    Haha no. It doesnt matter what border you are on or what objective. It have to do with the way things repair. Doors when repaired closes with an animation and if you are on the right spot, they close around you. You can even get stuck between the door and the side of the wall when they breach since they "open" and smack you in the head. Walls are the same, when repaired and it pops up over you, you will randomly get stuck inside. The game obviously have code to prevent this (you get warped outside 95% of the time) but I am guessing that if this happen at the same time there is a lag spike on your end it doesnt handle it properly and get you inside the wall. Probably all client side, like movement prediction. Since the walls have planar collision there is nothing you can do about it other than /stuck, die to AoE or tp. Sometimes I have gotten portals/leaps/etc to work but the collision mostly stop any interaction with the outside.

    Honestly I dont want Anet to "fix" it like they "fixed" the waypoints. It's not worth it.

    I went into eotm because of stupidness in wvw and repaired myself into several of the generators there. I don't really hang out there, so I'm not sure if that's normal generator behavior, but I do know if you don't dodge at the last second, you'll get entombed every time. Maybe it's a training feature.

    I have learned that the best thing is to just go to the spot where it gives you the option to repair and NO further. So far I haven’t been trapped since doing this.

    I've gotten stuck a few times myself. Last night we were under siege in stone mist, I tried to get some attackers stuck in the wall at a small opening.
    Didn't work.

    No really, you dont need to put effort into fixing this. There are plenty of other things in WvW that you can fix, such as the gliders causing lag warp on the Y axis or the arrowcarts shooting through walls.

    This has been in the game for 6 years and it's just as funny to see it happening to guildies so you can laugh at them for getting their kitten stuck as it was the first day.

    Last week, I got stuck in the wall on the top left (NW) tower (can't remember name) on DBL.

    First time I've ever gotten stuck in WvW.

  • Less reliable? Pretty sure it hasnt worked since launch...

  • XenesisII.1540XenesisII.1540 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'd be happier if ports could work through all destroyed wall spots, especially the walls with stairs, many places it can't find the "path" when doing like a jaunt or blink through it. Speaking of jaunt that tends to fail on a lot of stairs in the game too, rather annoying with it being the condition cleanse too.

    But anyways haven't been stuck in a wall in a while but I tend to repair right at the edge of the wall, keeping in mind if it's a stair wall which is a little wider.

    Thanks for the reply Ben! Yes, it seems as though it is not ejecting people as reliably anymore. I play quite a bit of WVW, and for a while I can't recall this happening unless you were actually running through the broken wall when it got repaired. If you were repairing, you were always ejected. But as of late, it seems that the ejection is not happening as it should.

  • DeadlySynz.3471DeadlySynz.3471 Member ✭✭✭✭

    This happens quite frequently. If I'm repairing a wall or gate, I'll at least try to hold off until people have run through, or anticipating people running through.

    Yeah now that you mention it, I got swallowed by one of those trees not too long ago as well. I think the gates/walls/trees have gone hungry ;) better watch out everyone! The thing that I know has been more or less fixed is the terrain/ground swallowing people, I have not experienced that or getting put under a lord in a long time.

    Could you toggle it up so that Mesmer portals that hug the wall/gate could port people out of that situation. I know its a band aid solution, but most groups run with at least one Mesmer. Currently people stuck in walls and gates cannot take Mesmer portals despite the fact that those portals don't need line of sight or effect anywhere else in the gamemode.

    I did this the other day for the first time in years. But I have closed dozens of walls and doors since then without incident so idk.

    On reset night, we were fighting inside Stoic Rampart and I happened to jump at the same time as those kitten rock walls popped up and I got stuck inside the entire time and could not get out.

    LOL I've been repaired into a wall many times.

  • aandiarie.7195aandiarie.7195 Member ✭✭✭

    There was also another time where when I was repairing the sw wall of smc I fell through the map and was in the underground lake of EBG. I've only seen it once, but it was cool to be able to swim through out the whole map. https://imgur.com/a/qMMOLYS It was actually really pretty and sort of cool.

  • Menzo.2185Menzo.2185 Member ✭✭✭

    This is a problem for everyone today. We are all getting stuck inside the walls, on WvW maps, when we are going to fix them.

  • Strider Pj.2193Strider Pj.2193 Member ✭✭✭✭

    So... The Mag inserted Hack is taking effect...

    Rumour has it: Mag leadership in their shadowey council chambers within the bowels of SMC got together and inserted a hack into the code that would trap any player in the walls, if they were trying to be repaired.

    It's more frequently involving Reinforced and fortified walls.

    And if I have to /S this....

    Perhaps adding something to help in the meantime to help players that become stuck for them to interact with that teleports them to their spawn (even if in combat) that is only interactable while the wall is up, maybe if they own the tower/keep/smc it can teleport them to lords room. This idea would only be a band-aid though.

    Does it have a limit of players?
    Does ground area affects it like it affects some skills wich wil make damage not reach target?

    We're not magifying very well this week are we? Repeatedly losing SMC to SBI....for shame. Seems like every time I zone in it's red. And don't blame me. I've barely played this week since I started working on a new legendary. It's probably Destro's fault.

    Don't tell anyone, but while our KDR without a link is pretty good, our coverage/PPT is terrible. Livin the T4 dream. But I guess on the upside, the repair glitch is one way to get rid of the AFK repair farmers.

    You know a simple /stuck feature where it tp's next to the wall would be nice. You could even make it so it puts you in the outside part of the keep/tower so no one can cheat their way in.

    We had someone stuck in a gate yesterday in Alpine, they were moving through the gate to join us when we took tower and we took it before they cleared the gate. They were stuck in the wall, we tried to portal them out since we were in another bbl... Didn't work they had to tp and try to catch up to the group.
