Banned by the GM Police for Unknown Reasons

edited October 2016 in Bug Reporting
Bug type: GM Police Banning Unnecessarily

Brief bug summary: I get "banned by the GM police" (disconnected) whenever I try to kill anything. It usually happens within a minute or two of fighting monsters. I'm not sure what is causing this issue, but it's only appeared after this recent patch.

More details: My friends think it might be related to classes with "damage blocking" skills. I.e. I am a Kanna and I have fox fire.
Edit: I've found that I don't have this issue if I remove all my armor with the "% chance to ignore % damage" potentials. So perhaps that's part of the issue?

Steps to reproduce:

1. Use all your buffs before encountering any monster.
2. Fight as normally and eventually get banned.

Character name: Seollal

Character level: 227

Character job: Kanna

World name: Khaini

Date and time of the incident: 10/21/16, 7:15 AM Central Standard Time

    I just got disconnected by GM police on my phantom as well, while having rage on and fighting Pink Bean.
    I don't have any equips with the "% chance to ignore damage" line though.

    I had just stolen DR from pink bean though, and also got hit by it. Maybe it has to do with double damage reflects/ignores. Like you can't have rage as well as the ignore line, and you can't have rage as well as monster DR (if you're a phantom that can steal it). Cause I haven't had any issues until this specific time, only using rage.

    I had the same issue on my kanna and my hat has 20% chance to ignore dmg. I'm not too sure why that happens, but whenever I'm mobbing I'll randomly dc.

    So this report implies that having a Damage Reflection Skill and "Chance to ignore some damage" Potential will cause GM Police to trigger. This includes:
    Hero's Rage
    Phantom's stolen Rage and DR gained from Vol D'Ame
    Demon Slayer's Vengeance
    Xenon's Aegis System and/or Hybrid Defenses?
    Kanna's Foxfire

    Does it also happen with the following skills?
    Cannoneer's Counter Crush
    Aran's Body Pressure
    Mechanic's Perfect Armor

    I have the same problem as you. I also have the potential "% chance to ignore % damage". I have been blocked 10+ times.

    Possibly! DiDiz is a DS reporting this issue. I wouldn't be surprised if it applies to other classes. I have some xenon friends experiencing this issue.. but I'm not sure what skill they have that would do that.

    My guess would have to be Aegis System and/or Hybrid Defenses, as Aegis System causes retaliation, while Hybrid Defenses lets you ignore a portion of damage taken.

    I've had this same problem ever since the Strange Stories patch. I get kicked off whenever I'm mobbing, Bossing and questing. The only thing I know I can do is sell stuff, which normally wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't trying to level. Hopefully this gets fixed soon. It's really annoying.

    I was bossing and it started to happen a few weeks before I posted and still not resolved. I had no clue what was causing it. Had no latency that time.

    Stop using Vengeance, and you will stop dcing if you have the unique/legendary tier potential line "% chance to ignore % damage" on any of your equipment.

    This has nothing to do with chat channel stutter. It's also not unique to Kanna.

    It's due to having a skill that reflects damage, and also a "% to ignore damage" potential line. It happens to me on my Hero if I have Rage on and equips with that line. If I don't use Rage, or unequip those items, I don't disconnect.

    All the more reason why "Chance to ignore some damage" Potential is completely useless.

    Would love to see this fixed. My phantom has been getting these disconnections a lot. I thought it was maybe I was attacking too fast or something.
