    Arena fights

    1) Bug description: what did you do when the bug occurred?
    When going to the arena to fight opponents for the 10 attemps to get xp, I get to choose between 3 opponents. Let's call them A, B and C.
    I look them over to see their stats, so I know which opponent I have the best change of defeating.
    So I choose opponent C, click the image and accept the fight.
    The fight starts, but it is not opponent C, nor is it A or B, it is a completely random opponent, chosen by the game.

    2) Did you take a screenshot? Upload it to or

    3) When did the bug occur (date and time)?
    1 time 13/05-20
    2 times 14/05-20
    I have reported this issue before latest update, where it happened 2-3 times everyday. Seems to be happening less after update.

    4) Did it repeat itself?

    5) Your browser, version number, installed addons, OS, Internet connection and provider
    Chrome Version 81.0.4044.138 (Officiel version) (64-bit), no addons, Win10 64-bit Home Edition, 230/30Mbit from Boxer.

    7) What is your class?

    8) What is your in-game language?

    9) What did you do to keep the bug from repeating itself?
    Can't. It happens randomly, out of my control.

    What's your platform? The bug should have been fixed in the latest update.

      I don't want to be bad guy ... but they did not fix it at all. It still happens.

      Seems like they completely ignored what I wrote in that ticket to you ...

        I confirm, it's not fixed at all, it still happens


          Erhm, platform? I believe it is Remastered.

          If it helps: It never were just the image that was displayed wrong. It was always a completely different opponent. Different image, stats, name, all of it.

            It just happened again. 7:03 am 15/05-20.

            Of the 3 opponents I was presented with, I chose A. This opponent was called Riverwind on my server. I clicked the image and the fight started. The opponent I got to fight was Aldhissla on my server. Completely different opponent, not just the image.

              I suffer that bug more than a month ago in both worlds where I play.

              To avoid any player appearing randomly when choosing the player in the arena, I go to the ranking and click it from there.Sometimes, even with that method, it doesn't work and another player appears just clicking the attack


                Do you only encounter this bug if you are offered 3 new opponents, then you ignore them and come back to them after some time?
                Or do you also have this bug in back to back fights?

                  Both. I can't find any "triggers" and I have been looking for anything that could be a clue as to why this happens.


                    I just moved a little over a week ago, set my PC up again and I think I have found something that triggers this bug.

                    It seems to be related to what is happening in this thread:

                    After my last post in the tread:
                    This might help for some.

                    Clear your internet cache/temp and cookies for anything related to S&F.

                    Seems too simple, but I did this and the game now runs almost buttery smooth

                    Downside is, you have to import and log in with your character/characters again.
                    I started thinking, maybe it is some sort of a lag issue or something like it. So I started testing this like a pro amateur , by first seeing who I want to attack, then let my mouse either hover over that player for 5-10 seconds or move my mouse around only on that player for 5-10 seconds, then click and accept the fight. I used to just click and accept the fight right away.
                    So far, there has only been 2 attacks, where I ended up fighting someone else than I chose. And that is out of about 80 fights, where before it would be 2 out of 10 or so.

                      The problem is not what is causing the bug, but the lazy implementation behind that that even allows it to happen.

                      The cause of the bug is very simple. Entering arena queries all 3 players at once (sometimes more than once because of the players being expired, this is what causes the bug). The server replies, but sometimes those replies are handled in wrong order. The game just assumes the order is correct and rewrites the data happily, which in turn makes the game show different players.

                      Btw #1: You can trigger it by going into Arena for the first time / getting new opponents, go out, wait for 10 second and go back to Arena. If everything goes as expected you will be faced with the bug. Might take several tries.

                      Btw #2: Lazy and easy fix is modifying Players.HasPlayer function to check if player is expired

                        I can confirm the bug is not fixed, I use Windows 10 PC with Firefox. This bug happens 3-4 times a day. It even appears if I fight in the arena every 10 minutes, also when the timer directly reaches 0 seconds and I get the free try. Usually this happens when I get offered an opponent with fairly weak stats there (ex. if I as scout have 3k dex and 2,5 con, I get someone with 2k dex and 1,5k con) and trying to fight this weak opponent usually gives me one that is mostly higher level than me.
                        International Server 43.
                        This is very annoying for daily quest to beat 3 scots, as all scouts I attacked turned out to something else (and all this loosing against a phantom player that I didn't pick is no fun!)

                          Untill the devs fix the bug, you can avoid this bug most of the times from my experience.

                          How to avoid: When choosing your opponent, before you accept the fight, check to see if the name and picture of the opponent is the same as the one you chose.
                          Example: you choose opponent 2 with the name "xyz", click the picture and now the popup window appears where you have to accept the fight. The picture matches, but the name of the opponent is now "abc". This means it is bugged.
                          Now go to another tab, like "guild" and wait a second or 2. Go back to the "arena" tab, choose opponent 2 "xyz" and again check the name. Is it "xyz"? Great, accept the fight. Is it still "abc"? Try changing tabs again and if it still doesn't work, log out and back in. Still bugged? Well, just accept the fight and go again in 10min, or shroom
