Utahsin swapped out nearly dead, came back full health NOT a bot


#1

Bug Description: In battle, my opponent swapped out a nearly dead Utahsin. Later they brought them back in and it had full health. Not a bot, this person is in my past opponents list, and when looking at the profile, I was able to send a friend request.

I can provide the name to Ludia staff, but don’t want to call anyone out here.

Area is was found in: Jurassic Ruins

How do you reproduce the bug:
Step 1- Not sure, it’s the first time I can confirm seeing it against a non-bot.
Step 2 -
(add more if needed)

How often does it happen: Once so far.

What type of device are you using: iPhone 8, updated iOS

Anything else? (add screenshots or additional information here)

Well, now that’s freaky. I still have a pending friend request from this account, but now they are no longer in my recent opponents.

Bot after all? Weird that I could see them in recents for a while and send a friend request. I can’t believe they were a cheater that happened to get nailed in the small window between our battle and now.

Is there a list of bot names for me to reference?


#3

Is it a nonsense name with two words just crammed together?


#4

KingCam. If you’re real, sorry. This isn’t a call out, just a bug report.

What’s odd besides seeing them in opponents, if it’s a bot, is that they have a profile and trophy count.

ETA: The trophy count has been changing.


#5

Hmm… I haven’t seen a bot with that name but what you describe sounds like what a bot would do.

Hey Bunners, contact our support team at support+forums@ludia.com with your support key so they can investigate further and see what might have happened during your match.

I had the same sort of thing happen to me today, someone I was battling had 2 of the same Dino?! It was so weird. They just brought 1 out after the other.


#8

Same here. Two I-rexes, switched a severely wounded one for a full health one…


#9

You mean like TheMaxx?

Only kidding! :joy::joy:

Hi Ned,

Can I take your reply as that Ludia logs all battles play by play and can tell if such problems are bugs or cheats? So say I think something really funky happened, I can give my player name and my opponents name, round about time and my match can be looked up and reviewed?

I believe this ended up being a bot, but it had bizarre interactions

  1. I could see it in recent opponents for about 5 minutes after the battle. After that, the account never popped up in recents again.

  2. It let me make a friend request

2a) The timer for 3 days to respond never counted below 2 days and 23 hours, the name swapped between the name I “friended” and Guest. After a several days it did just disappear.

  1. I could look at the profile the entire time because it was a pending friend request. The trophies changed up and down periodically, but the dinos never changed.

  2. Eventually the pending request disappeared and it I never saw my friend again sniff

I stole this name from that old MTV cartoon. I love that show.


#13

JWA actually wouldn’t allow the name I normally use for gaming, even though I don’t think it’s inappropriate. It blocked every variation of it that I tried, so I had to make something up real quick.
