1. We have a QA initiative where we work with the community more closely than ever to get your bug reports into the hands of the developers. Please use this forum for LIVE Server bug reporting. Do follow the format below, because it will help us out greatly in responding. If you do not, it's possible your bug report will be misinterpreted, or worse, lost!

    Read BEFORE submitting your first bug: Reporting Bugs… QA 101 Document
    • Disable all Lua Add-Ons by using '/lua unload' in local chat or temporarily move all files/folders out of the SotA Lua folder then restart the game.
      Ensure the issue still occurs before submitting a bug; Support staff will not debug Add-On issues
    • Search for your bug before posting in order to avoid duplicate reports.
    • Only reply to an existing thread if you have additional information for the reported bug. ALL extraneous commentary will be deleted to avoid cluttering the reports.
    • Keep your bug report short and factual.
    • There is no need to submit crash logs. Crash data we require is automatically logged.

    It is not realistic.

    I can't speak for Portalarium, but this is a problem a number of games have. The reason is that it's much less resource intensive to make all objects of one type be clones of each other. Doing that means they can all be updated as a single object, rather then individually. Better performance, but you get the synchronicity you're seeing.

    I want to say this was brought up before and it was agreed an issue to be fixed, but probably not priority.

    this sort of thing has been randomized before after having attention drawn to it. might not be hard.
