  • Trial timer

    Now, I gotta say, this bug is REALLY annoying me. It's in fact annoying me that much, that I nearly deleted Eternium a minute ago.

    When the damn timer on a trial shows, that there is 0:00 left, THE TIME HAS SIMPLY NOT EXPIRED, DAMMIT!

    After like 400 tries I was able to finally beat TBD on #142 with 0:00 left, yet it simply does not count against the leaderboard. I know, I know, please don't tell me that there is some mathematical rounding in place - I know it is. But how stupid has one to be to ROUND time left instead of CEILING it? Even if there is 0:00.000001 second left - IT IS STILL TIME AVAILABLE, IT IS NOT 0!

    I am SO pissed atm...

    ...are you sure you had time left? In order for the run to count, you need to defeat the boss before the timer expires.

      Take it easy man. I know what you feel (I too am stuck at 141 ). At least you can blame it on game. Me, I get a call from wife in middle of trial whenever I'm having a good run Happened 4 times

        Well, the game client clearly states "Timer expired" in the status bar at the bottom of the screen otherwise. So, logically, there MUST be a difference between an expired timer and time left (may the time left be so tiny as it can be: Software does not decide one time in favor of the left side and the other time in favor of the right side). And since my screenshot clearly states digits instead of "Timer expired" I guess I am quite sure.

        Thanks for the hints regarding the forum software :-)

          Well, in such a case I am quite sure my wife would be referenced to as "ShotDead".... :-D

            Pretty sure the game works like this:
            0,01 to 0,49 -> not counted
            0,51 to 0,99 -> counted

            Both are shown as 0:00 though.

            This seems to be true for all times in trials.
            I made a complete list for skipping trials and experienced different results within the same shown seconds left sometimes.

                Well, I tried to point on this topic (again).
                This has been brought up several times now, with others complaining as well.

                I assumed your ranting was supposed to bring a change to this bad mechanic and I wanted to support.
                But... thanks for the gif.

                  Well, in this case you could've simply seconded. Or wrote something like "yeah, that mechanism sucks". But instead you wrote the exact thing I begged not to write. Did you really expect me to be thankful for this?

                    Altbough i can understand you anger, i don't really consider this a major bug. I mean it's the same for everyone, so i think there are way more important things to be fixed in the game.

                      it happens sometimes... I had a 0:00 timer a few times before and if it got recorded in LB it will show as 9:59 but sometimes it does not record it at all... maybe a server connections issue like all the LB not recorded bug...
