*edit* What's going on with NeoKaon anyway?

The machines have attacked and are replicating anyone on that board to Agent Smith clones. Its nasty, you may want to buy a firewall just to protect yourself.

On the bright side, I double checked on three devices today (Ipad, Android Evo 3d, Iphone). The site seems to be working in mobile mode, but again works with less issues if you set the phone to emulate desktop mode.

Not sure if this has been brought up before (too many pages!) but Arena, at least for me, seems to have a problem. When I click the arena-fight button, i see some level 2/3s in an arena battle instead of my guys

It's a known bug with the logs. You're getting your XP, the logs are just getting mixed up with some old logs that weren't properly deleted. On the plus side, the missions aren't all messed up with that bug, so you could always join those instead.

I don't know if this is happening to anyone else but in the edit section for your characters the custom color chart is cut off for me.

If I remember right the top row is supposed to have 11 or 12 dots, or whatever you call them, and the bottom 2 sections are supposed to have 6. Well the box that it's in cuts off the dots, my top row only goes to 9 and the bottom 2 barely go to 5 because the box it's in cuts down the middle of the dots.

Just wondering if this is happening with anyone else?

This has to do with the way the CSS overlays. You can tab through the selections or use the arrow keys to get the selections to get the selections that are blocked or not seen.

Just noticed that all of my guys are in >4h missions too. I've been playing over 2 years and never saw this particular glitch before. And I finally just upgraded 4 of mine to level 7 today too, so having to scrap the whole game a second time now would really sting like a ****. I'm copying all of my bios just in case.

Oh, and as I just noticed someone said in January, my color chart is cut off too. I was hoping it was a temporary glitch that would sort itself out, but I may as well speak up.

You still getting that, or is this a new thing, and has it sorted itself out at all?

It may that the clock has altered again, that's what caused the 4-year mission waiting times earlier this month.

Not sure if this is a worthwhile bug to report, but the game called a Decepticon retreat at the exact same second that the only Decepticon in the mission went into stasis lock...

Just ran 5 of mine through arena battles, and no one on either side scored any points, don't bother with that either until the bug is fixed. FYI

Yeah, if people haven't noticed on their character pages that there are pointer and argument issues with the MySQL database. I wouldn't even bother playing around with the troops and assigning points or armor/weapons till Ryan or the staff gives us a go ahead.

It is all good, I'm enjoying catching up on some of the forums and think of this as a mini vacation from the grind. I can wait for the site owner to do what he needs to do.

Not sure if this is the game or my browser, but the registry and missions screens aren't updating like they should. They're perpetually 2 or 3 updates behind, saying characters I are still active that I just deactivated or put in a mission, stuff like that. Can't say as I recall seeing this happen before.

Not sure if this is "a bug" or an RNG thing...

http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar/view_mission.php?mission_id=433704

We both have double the life of the BOT, but somehow us CONs are low on energy and retreat?!

I'd say that was one helluva bluff pulled on us.
