Haste Issue Causing Ability Errors - Update#2

(Locked)

Community Manager
2/9- A hotfix for this issue has been applied but will require off-peak rolling restarts to pick up the change. For this hotfix and others stay tuned to our official 4.0.6 Hotfix update blog - http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2259389#blog

2/9- The Haste issue was hotfixed last night but unfortunately as all hotfixes are quick fixes on the live realms, there is some risk associated with them and a new bug has been introduced. We believe the extent is that rogues, druids, death knights, and hunters are now not earning resources from true haste (such as from gear). We expect to implement a fix late tonight or early tomorrow. Our apologies for any impact this may have on your regularly scheduled play.

An apparent last-minute bug which was not found on the PTR before the patch was finalized has caused the client and server to disagree on the way haste affects resource generation. This bug will manifest itself in the UI showing a player they have enough resources to use an ability, but the server correctly prevents it as they in fact do not. A death knight for example might see a rune light up that isn’t actually available so when they use the ability, it won’t fire. A rogue may think they have enough energy to use Sinister Strike, but they can’t actually afford it so when they push the button, they will get an error. This bug could affect rogues, death knights, hunters and Feral druids, because these characters all gain more resources from haste. It will also affect buffs that affect attack speed, such as Slice and Dice, Windfury, Icy Talons, and Hunting Party, but also attack speed lowering effects like Thunder Clap. We're currently working on a fix.

any word yet on the bugged queues, especially for xp-off players?

specifically




Simplest explanation of the bug:

People are queing for battlegrounds, the minimap states that they are in the queue but a game will never pop. Eventually after waiting in the queue for a very long time they discover that they can queue for dungeons and their battleground queue is no longer active.

There is no visual or auditory indicator that the queue has bugged but we have come up with a method to isolate the bug.

If you queue for Dungeons with LFG tool while your in a PvP queue you should get a message "You cannot queue for a dungeon while using battlegrounds or arenas.", if instead it actually allows you to queue for BG and Dungeons at the same time your queue is "bugged".

I have taken a video and screenshot of the issue to better illustrate what is obviously a bug:

At beginning of video you see me trying to queue for LFG while in WSG queue and it performed normally by giving me the message "You cannot queue for a dungeon while using battlegrounds or arenas.

At 17 seconds into the video you can clearly see I am in the queue for WSG, and it allows me to queue for a dungeon also.

In the last 2 nights that we have queued for Random or WSG we have narrowed down that the "Bugged Queue" happens when we have enough to pop a game either side.

For example, we have sat in the queue for an hour one evening waiting to get enough players. I looked at my custom application I wrote for the bracket (sample pic http://www.49pvp.com/Uploads/qpic.png) and saw we were only short one player. As soon as we got that one player the queue bugged out for almost everyone.

Death Knights have been getting "Not enough runes/runic power" messages since the start of time. To be fair, I thought it was like it always used to.

And yay for spreading the love.

Thanks for looking into this. Today I kept thinking, "wow how did I start lagging so bad all of a sudden as this patch went live?"

Turns out it wasn't a coincidence after all!

Nice job staying in touch with Paladins, this was taken out in 4.0.


Wow, you guys are ridiculous....

Here the guy is bringing helpful information to you, and you get all over his stuff because he made a quick typo trying to hash this out between the 100 other things he has to do.

Do you ever make silly mistakes at work? Yea


Thanks for the info bash

Haha, don't worry about it. It's like, three clicks for me to suspend someone. It's super duper easy.

YES! Thank you!! I'd been wondering what the heck was causing that for MONTHS! Ever since I first noticed it on Festergut when I stupidly got hit by Malleable Goo...

I would like to constructively point out that the beta and PTR phases in this expansion have been handled horribly. Constructively.


Concur, I've no idea what's going on but this expansion is way, way buggier than the last two. I know it's an MMO and bugs happen, but this is, at least in my own experience, just on a whole new level, It's not something I'd expect from Blizzard.


I think you've got a selective memory when it comes to Vanilla WoW.

Those days of bugs makes Cataclysm look pristine and refined.
