:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When I tried to place a gate foundation, the preview depicted it already burning.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Click build a gate
  2. Move the foundation around some (in some kind of danger zone?)
  3. Perhaps you, too, will have a burning gate foundation

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The foundation should not be burning.

Hi @blastonguart !

We could not reproduce your issue. I cannot see it either in your recorded game, does this happen to you regularly?


No, can’t say it does. Yeah, recorded games doesn’t show players placing preview foundations, of course, so only the screenshot can testify to it. At the time in the screenshot I started building a gate, tried a few locations around that area, and suddenly my preview of the gate started burning ¯_(ツ)_/¯ When I placed it, it was fine. Just a weird occurrence.

Happened again twice this game. Here’s a screenshot of one.

Hi @blastonguart !

Does this happen to you in 59165?

Not sure. Haven’t played enough of this patch and it’s rare anyway. If I see it I’ll screenshot it again.
