[Bugreport] Blitzball Ending Failed

Hello everyone,

This post is mainly for developers and QA at BossKey, since it is a pure bugreport. I mainly used the structure that I was taught working with Jira in Quality Assurance, so I hope that is helpful. It seems like this bug slipped unter the radar quite a bit, since it being in existance since Patch 1.4 or even prior. We as a community have to stop complaining about things not being fixed, when nobody is reporting the issue. Quality Assurance can only do so much, especially in a small team, causing some very specific and rate bugs to go unnoticed.

The ending of a BlitzBall Match in LawBreakers can glitch out, causing all endscreens to break and the game being ended too soon.

Found in: 1.3.0, 1.4.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.1

This is a CRITICAL bug, hindering players to finish a match properly. It causes big discussions and anger in chat, causing people to quit the game.

Condition before the issue
Queue: Quick Play/Objectives
Gamemode: BlitzBall
Gamescore: 4 - 3

Given behaviour:
  1. Get the scores to 4 - 3 in the Blitzball Match
  2. The enemy team (3 point) scores, now has 4
  3. Match is ending and glitching out

The issue:
  • Match is ending abruptly on score 4 - 4
  • Score grade shows unknown scoregrade
  • Scoreboard looks Pre-2.0 and is blank
  • An error message pops up upon entering main menu lobby with the text being: "Unable to load details for the last match (Error: Error: operation timed out after 18159 ms. 10 tries failure: undefined)"
  • The lobby continues to work and the next match is loaded without any issues
  • The Blitzball match is not shown in the profile match history and does not have an impact on score grade (seems to affect ranking in boss leagues though)
Screenshots: Twitter-Post

Expected bahaviour:
  1. Get the scores to 4 - 3 in the Blitzball Match
  2. The enemy team (3 point) scores, now has 4
  3. Both team have 4 point, the score being 4 - 4
  4. Players continue playing until one scores the 5th and final goal to win the game for their team

Thanks for reading!

    Thanks again for reporting these issues!

    We currently have an open known issue where users can score a blitzball capture after the match time ends. If this occurs while tying the game all users receive a loss and stats for the match fail to be collected. We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope to have a fix for this issue in a future patch.
