lair of the mad mage crash

edited November 2020 in Bug Reports (PC)
this happens basically every time I attempt lair of the mad mage, whether I'm in a queue group or a random party: when we're near the end of trobiand's life, at the point when we're attacking the power towers, the game crashes. if not for everyone, for most of the party. and then we all die and have to start over. for me, it crashes in such a way that I don't even get an error code (maybe because I use Steam), but last time my friend managed to take a picture, which is attached to this post, but the code is "24e737". what's crazy upsetting is, it crashes *everyone's* games, as if the instance has crashed, not just our launchers individually.

perhaps this has been brought up before, but it has gotten so bad tonight that we have given up the dungeon altogether, so I figured mayyyyyybe we should look for help.

thx in advance.

    More than 1 chicken in a group can crash the game in lomm and also at the last boss of TiC. Have to ask Cryptic the why, this is just what we are seeing.

    Crashes in LoMM and the presence of chickens has previously been reported for investigation. I will check with the rest of the team for any updates.

    The chickens cause crashes?
    They really are little chaotic demons!

    Abyssal Chickens have a hidden skills. They can bug or crash everything. The more chickens the better.

    @nitocris83 just as an update to this, a friend told me he did a LoMM today where someone in the party did have an Abyssal Chicken and it didn't crash. however, the difference this time is that his group was in a private queue, instead of going public. maybe that's some information you guys can use as well :) tysm for looking into it!

    Usually, you need two or more chicken to crash. One is ok. It can crash in many place. It crashed the stronghold before.

    Thank you for the update! We have been unable to repro the issue internally so this is very helpful information to have.

    I have had crashes in LoMM in public queue. It seems to happen when more than one Abyssal chicken is active, and always on the towers. Also it does not necessarily crash everyone in the group, usually only 2-3 people are affected, so it is not a server side zone crash. I have both crashed on these occasions and stayed online while others have crashed, so it does not seem to be tied directly to your local system type.

    Timing issues in the client?

    Everyone loves a good mystery :)

    Crashed on the stairs after the first boss (after you jump up and go through portal/door) Returned after crash and all was good.
    The game completely crashed i was on a tank and had my shield up during crash
    There are more than BIS players in this game
    It has been 5 YEARS since last new class this is getting ridiculous
    FORCING the majority of your player base to play 4 mod old dungeons and trial will have a bad result on player base
    Please do master/normal version of dungeons. This way content for all MOD 19 have nothing new for vast majority of player base. Giving an EVENT is not same thing as permanent content for non BIS. As we suggested in CDP
    Changes are getting so bad i would rather prefer no new changes (RIP ICE FISHING in winter fest)

    If i may guess i would say that the crash happens because when multiple chickens are there they try to use the spell they have on the same target that is actualy not suppose to be targetable and thus the game doesnt understand what is going and shut down for safety purposes that my guess. Or maybe it's just tryin to tell you stop using chickens

    Top of this page; very big letters that read "SUPPORT".
    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.
