Fixed Nomination Glitch

Discussion in Server Suggestions & Bugs started by Kloud, Oct 14, 2013

    Noticed a glitch about the nominations in ZE today.

    Player A nominates the map ze_FFVII_Mako_Reactor_v5_3 and idles in spectate or does anything but not leave.
    Player B nominates ze_resonance_cascade_v3 and Player A's Mako nomination gets unnominated.

    I'm not sure if this is happening with other maps aswell. @Jed
    This can also lead to the map getting double nominated, so it shows up two times in the map voting menu.

      Kloud informed me this about 10 minutes ago on ze_random. I don't know if this is happening with other maps or other servers. :confused:

      That has happened in ZM on many occasions as well. Never figured out how to replicate it properly enough to report it.

      ^ I'm on the same boat, I have seen this before but was not able to duplicate the problem. Great catch!

      Good thing players can't switch to spec without D/Cing or assistance from an admin so this should be something we consider when using nomination and switching to spectate :wink:.

        Jed's ultimate secret has been revealed!

        No kidding. I've seen that duplication in the nomination list as well a few times. I couldn't care less unless it was a map that I didn't want to play

        I've usually seen it happen when 2 players hit the same nomination at the same time.

        Was the map extended maybe? Because if the map gets extended, you can nominate those maps again.

        This occurred before a map vote was put up.

        It happens when somebody nominates a map, and you still have the nomination list up from prior to them nominating that map, thus you can still select the map, getting a double nomination for it.

          Easy to duplicate map nomination:
          Player A type Nominate, he go on Mako page
          Player B type Nominate, he also go on Mako page
          When they are both on the page, they both select Mako.
          So mako is nominated both :wink:

          But if you ever fixed this glitch, I don't know what is the problem.

            Player B nominates ze_resonance_cascade_v3 and Player A's Mako nomination gets unnominated.

            :shock: maybe because the Player A became afk

            Its a sign that resonance cascade > mako.

              No, I tested it with Jed and it took a minute.

              Wait Kloud, is it that resonance_cascade changes someone else mako nomination? And is it only that map that changes people map noms?

              Hopefully this will make it easier.

              • Person A nominates Mako
              • Person B nominates resonance
              • Mako gets unnominated

                Like this? In this case it was Player A, B, C, and D (This was a while ago and was also set-up)

                  I think so.

                  Let's say Kloud nominates Mako
                  THe mako nomination is now taken and cannot be nominated.
                  Jed types in nominate and goes to nominate resonance cascade.
                  Somehow when that map gets nominated the mako nomination vanishes.
                  Now anyone can nominate mako.

                  Yes, with that you can get a full nominate list with the same map --> so we know what will be the nextmap :wink:

                  I remember something happening like this a few days ago with Choice 1 and 2 being both Mako.

                  I've never noticed this on ZM, but others say they have. I guess I just don't pay attention and spam 1 either way. hue
