    while i was doing the dark dwarf heist the game disconnected me and redirected me at the login screen (Twice) at the begining of the map and i couldn't even go back without paying the entry fee again. I don't have any connectivity problems and it's not a coincidence that i got disconnected at the same point of the map.

    Unfortunately, being sent back to town in the case of a disconnect is not a bug. This was implemented after players found and exploited a bug allowing the resetting maps (particularly bosses) for farming purposes.

    Regarding your experience of having this bug happen at the same point of the map, you ought to contact support. Once you contact them, you will get an automated response. Respond to this automated message and include the most recent log file (copy the file immediately after you encounter this bug). To find the log file, type %temp% in the search field of the Start Menu and hit Enter. Then open DSOClient. Wait for the list of files and folders to load and click the folder called dlcache and then the folder called logfiles. Look for the one without a number and that is the most recent.

    Yep! Win/Die is correct! Instead of making an intelligent solution, the programmers decided to punish ALL players because some of them exploited a reloadglitch...
    You still get kicked from the game from time to time without any other explanation than BigPoint programmingskills are subpar to say the least. and when U reload the game and log back in, U are intentionally kicked back to town, no matter what U did, and where U were...

    U have two choises: Either accept the injustice (and get used to it, cause BP reguarly does stuff like this) or find a game that treats U fairly!

    ;)

    Honestly it is not subpar. This is an on going developing game. I am sure they are programing something and to judge anyone before it is finished just is not good business.
    With anything there is exploits and once found fixing typical that takes time.

    There will ALLWAYZ be exploits! On that point I agree!
    But punishing the entire community, because of a few rotten apples is either due to subpar programmingskillz or downright sadistic, and I allwayz beleive in the good of mankind, so i diagnosed the problem to be the least of two evils...
    ...And besides... developing games is really not that hard! I remember the tale of two boys doing exactly that with the engine of a valvegame called Halflife... They kept developing their mod of that game, and now its the most played game of all times... remember: This was 2 untrained boys working from home!

    They where mod designers using programs already created to aid them in creating mods. They had no coding to do they used existing code. And they where at the mercy of valve and their upgrades to the Quake engine. The mine quest game has simular mods where kids age 8 and up build world's so the link to a mod developer and game designer are vastly different.

    So they can tell you that they already know about it.
    DSO has been around for at least 4 years. Don't make excuses for the developers. They are supposed to be professionals who know what they are doing.
    BP hopes these kinds of problems will make you spend more money.

    I am still playing this game, but I don't take it as seriously as I used to. In order to complete an event like this one you have to spend every waking hour playing and/or spend a lot of money.

    Actually, I don't know anything about this bug, so it is more likely to be something that is unpredictable and seemingly random, if it is even a real bug at all and not just a coincidence.

    I got some game errors as well, different from this case though. A fatal error and i had to start all over again. At all events always seems to be a bug that is bothering the users, is there a proper check from the developers before releasing an event?

    Here is the funny thing... I haven't gotten any such bug, meaning that it is like YWOYD said... "random." And in this case, I bet random means that it will be tough for the devs to find/fix.

    Because instead if complaining I make suggestions how to fix stuff.

    Instead of being negative I try to inspire.

    Instead of being critical I try to build.

    That is just who I am.

    This is no way to know someone deliberately build a car seat wrong.

    Let's talk about the DC put back into to town. Please read creative corner fixing exploits this is what I mean over complaining. Complaining about something just makes some fix it in a way that you might hate more. Trust me keeping you in the map after a certain amount of time is not a way they will ever go.

    Here is a cut and paste from the forum rules section
    http://www.bigpoint.com/drasaonline/board/threads/our-forum-netiquette.1880/
    No they want people to say I don't like this or that or the hp on this mob seems to high. And constructive criticism is welcome also but to say it is because you employ subpar work is a attack not on the game but on the people that built the game.

    It is a subpar work and bad programming.

    BTW your code is not working ... probably because it is not a code at all but quote. I think you just created an bug XD
