Tottle WARNING ?!?

Postby Drudatz » February 17th, 2018, 1:10 pm

It would be nice if someone else can reproduce this:

Tottle is your last pet alive (dunno if it matters how many pets the opponent has alive but I think not)
Tottle must have Shell Rush as his second move.
Now you use Shell Rush and get kicked out of the game with
Code: Select all
Message: [string "Humanoid - Whirlwind"]:34: attempt to index local 'target' (a nil value)
Time: 02/17/18 18:55:23
Count: 1
Stack: [string "Humanoid - Whirlwind"]:34: attempt to index local 'target' (a nil value)
[C]: ?
[string "Humanoid - Whirlwind"]:34: in function `Whirlwind'
[string "Humanoid - Whirlwind"]:117: in function <[string "Humanoid - Whirlwind"]:1>
(tail call): ?
[string "return function(...)..."]:5: in function `scriptFunction'
[string "Core - Handle Turn"]:22: in function `Dispatcher_HandleSpellVisualPackage'
[string "Core - Handle Turn"]:6: in function `Dispatcher_HandleTurn'
[string "PetBattle - 4. Playback Turn"]:13: in function `PlaybackAllTurns'
[string "PetBattle - 2. Pre-Playback Processing"]:207: in function `ProcessAllRoundResults'
[string "PetBattle - 1. Handle Event"]:84: in function `ProcessEvent'
[string "PetBattle - 0. Init and Main Loop"]:94: in main chunk

Locals:


What I suppose happens is that the game tries to swap in another pet
("Deals xyz Aquatic damage to the enemy team and swaps the user with your highest health pet.")
BUT there are no pets to be swept in so the game "crashes".

Anyone can reproduce that?

PS: the same happens with Haunt and Lauch Rocket when the haunt goes first.

Yeah it’s a know issue with that ability you get an error saying something like pet battle failed to create.

You’re right it’s the same error as launch rocket so it must be an error when trying to target the opponents pet.

Nono, its NOT the same error:
Shell Rush = No Pet to switch in.
Hunt and Launch Rocket = No target for the rocket

but seeing that the post is from 1st of February and not much response to it someone should twitter that to blizzard :D

That's an interesting bug. The best course of action is to send Blizzard a bug report either in-game or on the Bug Report Bnet Forums. Hopefully they'll address and fix this issue in the near future.

As always, please keep discussions civil and friendly.

Have you tried using Shell Rush against Decoy pets?
Your Tottle doesn’t go to the back line. RIP

Apparently someone on the EU servers is exploiting this bug along with some malicious pet names to go with it. Got some real charming people around here. Anybody know who’s running Kid/Rabbit/Tottle?

So I’ve literally been told the saddest thing ever. There’s a player out there who is actively trying to bug out games once they start loosing. Apparently they did it 7-8 times on the bounce. I think we need to find this poor guy a give them some tips as I feel sorry for them struggling for the 10 weekly wins. Probably takes them all week with that kinda ratio.

Hello,

So I've faced this guy ~~20times the last month, can confirm he is for some reason still doing it.

I have also asked what should be done when facing him: What one should do is send a as specific as possible email to hacks@blizzard. com with info such as your region, your character, your realm, a timeframe where you faced him and a description of what he is doing (a link to this post could be the last part)

PS: If his Tottle would have died from an end of turn effect when he exploits, you actually get the win

This was on the EU Pet Battle forum under the uninteresting PvP Pet teams. The guys been named and everything just FYI.

I don’t want to fall foul of the mods so it’s easier to check it out there. I’m just very glad that someone who HAS to use exploits will be getting what’s coming.

Ho ok,
Lets hope that's the case. Feels quite weird that some1 would waste 5 min to waste 5mins of some1 else's time / prevent them from working on one of the longest achievement grinds but well.

Apparently this player is back not winning games again but exploiting a bug. Check out Vens post regarding how to report this player.

Such a shame they aren’t on my meta and able to play properly I’ve got a few teams I wanted to farm wins on.

It's possible I just had bad luck, but more often than not, I run into this Tottle-exploiting team.

I am curious, how you guys deal with it?

I dislike waving the flag, because it just provides him or her with an easy win. Yet, spending time battling is a waste, because no matter what, Tottle's Shell Rush will bug the fight out in the end.

Clonedance teams to kill Tottle on the backline is the easiest answer.

If that isn’t an option, abilities like Decoy, Bubble and Deflection will prevent the bug from occurring.
Good luck.

Ooh? I didn't know Decoy etc. could prevent it! Thank you! Will give that a try. I tried Clonedance, but the Ghastly Kid dispels Cyclone more often than not. Then again, I am not that experienced in PvP pet battles. Thanks again :)
