When a barrage hive is hit, damage done, and then timed out (or fleet killed), sometimes the barrage hive fleet would regenerate. Extensive testing first appeared to show this is a random occurrence. I was able to demonstrate this glitch and record it.
THE LEFT HIVE REGENERATES, THE RIGHT HIVE DOES NOT.
Confirmation is requested. I have watched dozens of people 2-hit by hitting the right hive first, then the left. It was of course harder to get people to agree to hit the left hive first, but a few sacrificed for the greater good.
Special thanks to JimmyJames who was the only player to willingly take the suspected bad hit while i was recording. I will post the video as soon as I figure out how.
Edit for the video (attempting youtube, hope it works fine): https://youtu.be/PlGb-aPTzsY
Just to clarify, "right" and "left" of course means from the perspective of your ships. If that fails, try to imagine a pilot in your ship, it you ask him or her which hive is left or right, the left regenerates, the right does not.
Kixeye thinking "oh ****, we've been rumbled.... *looks at devs, thought you said nobody would notice?"
For the life of me I dont understand why you'd want to post this …. DO YOU WANT MORE DAMAGE? IDIOT
Erm, he posted a video because its **** flat out broken, the only way the barage hives could be any more broken is if they regenerated to full health... dumbass.
To be fair the fact that one of them does regenerate was most likely intentional, I cant see how that could be an overlooked error by a dev because both hives are meant to be identical. The incoherent rambling of nashslash makes no sense though, you're pointing out an issue that will make hitting these fleet types easier if they fix it, not harder.
@bayareawebpro, you really are off base here. It's not about "whaa, I can't do this" You saw the same video as all of us. They had decimator and pun/python fleets. OBVIOUSLY they could kill it in one go. They way you make it sound like you know everything means you either work for Kixeye or you should because you sound exactly like them...
Left nut regeneration.
Wasted 5mins of my life to watch that dumb you tube.
U should kill the barrage in one go to collect all the max points. Second time pro rated points ain't worth the time and effort!
Yes that happened to me today a few hours ago. Hit a hive on the right almost killed it but didnt quite. It timed out and I hit it again and right hive stayed at same damage level. I killed the right hive but didnt touch the left hive. After it timed out I hit it once more to check and the left huve had completely regenerated while right hive stayed damaged. Hopefully kix will fix this.
Erm, I doubt they'll even "fix" it, I never suggested they would. I just think one auto regens intentionally because kixeye thought nobody would notice.
Kix needs to test things a lot more before release.
Your conclusion is correct.
