  • Vivienne's second attack bug

    I've noticed this quite often. Maybe it's a visual glitch, but doesn't seem so.

    When Vivienne first attacks an LC, and then gets a chance for a second attack - instead of a column she attacks only one hero in the back row.

    Even if Vivienne attacks a column, her second attack is to a single hero and not to a column. And it's not only a visual glitch, because the other hero in that column doesn't receive damage. So yes, looks like Vivienne's second attack is bugged.

        Huh. I didn't know was a glitch, thought maybe it was intentional. I believe Thornton is the same way, but I'd have to check.

          By the way, not noticing the bug (or quirk) before speaks volumes on how often Vivienne is used...

            I've been testing this, trying to reproduce the issue, but I can't see the problem. I've fought dozens of battles with Vivienne, even increased her 2nd attack chance to 100% so it was easier to verify, and she ALWAYS attacks a column on the 2nd attack. Even if the first attack kills the LC.

            Maybe there's some more specific repro steps for this?

              Haven't used Vivienne since.

              But now I'm seeing the same with Elite Harlequins.
              I'm levelling them up a bit in daily nexus, and very-very often on first hit EH kills one row, and on second kills only one hero in other row, leaving other hero unscathed.

                While I have not played with Vivienne much and have not noticed the second attack bug with her, I have noticed it with Elite Harlequins as well. I was using them for the daily nexus and they will randomly attack one hero only on the second attack. After noticing it, I kept track of second attacks. In one battle an EH would attack twice, hitting a row each time, and in another the same EH would attack a row first and then attack a single hero on the second attack. I thought it might be intentional when I first noticed, but the second attack seems to randomly hit only one hero.

                  My Vivienne hasn't attacked a column on the second hit for a long time. I can verify that she only hits one person on her second attack.

                    Just a thought... are you guys fighting against Defenders when you see this bug occur? There is a known visual bug where the initial attacks that a Defender soaks up damage from don't show any animation of the defender being hit (so it looks like they're not being attacked), but then at the end of the attack you do still see the defender take all the cumulative AoE damage. Combining this with multi-attackers could definitely exacerbate the issue, making it look like the attacks are not hitting one character (because they're a defender), even though they are actually doing the damage to them, it's just not showing the animation.

                      Nope, she if defo attacking only one char in second hit

                        Yep, it's not an AoE defender she's hitting. She treats the second attack as a single person hit.

                          its weird tho, i used my own viv extensively back in the day when i got her as my first multi star hero but never noticed this bug. so maybe it only came about with one of the multi-attack fixes

                          could be that i just never noticed it as well i guess. seeing how back then her dmg output was pretty massive so often times shed clear out the back of the column shed hit in one strike and then only have one toon left to hit with a follow up anyway

                            I believe this bug affects other toons as well, such as: Aurelian Titus, DoTEO, Briala. I think the key word here are: chance to attack a second time, and their second attack is supposed to be the same as their first.
                            And this bug is not consistent. It is very often for my Briala to attack one target on her second attack, but sometimes she does attack all properly on her second attack.

                              FYI, there was a separate thread for this issue and it was determined that it's not actually a bug. What's happening is that any extra attack that is more than a single target (row, column, or all) and less than 100% chance is a separate individual chance that is rolled on each target. So for example if it's a 50% chance to attack a row again, then that's 2 separate 50% chances on each enemy in that row, and it's most likely that only one of those chances will be successful, but not both.

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
