    Players playing while "disconnected"

    I've played Shadow Era for a while, though this is my first time checking out the forums... Could someone enlighten me as to how some players seem to be able to play while supposedly disconnected? There's a clock that counts how long that is. I asked a player why and they just said their internet connection wasn't very good.... Seemed a bit fishy. Is this allowed? What advantage does it give them, if any? Thanks

    Hiya. Thanks for posting. There's no hackery going on - it's just a bug which is causing the disconnect from a previous game to appear as though it has happened in this game. Aside from the confusing message, it should be having no effect on the game. As far as I know, it is fixed in latest PC version. What platform are you on?

    On 2.905 (PC), when I watch finished matches, I get a message and a counter saying that I'm disconnected.

    Thanks everyone for replying. I'm playing on android as well. I sent a message to the staff and here's what they said:

    A customer support staff member has replied to your support request, #993625 with the following response:
    Hello, thanks for reporting this. We found that this is a bug if the player disconnects but doesn't join back again before the game is over. In the next games, it will incorrectly report that the player is disconnected when they aren't. You can close the app and restart if it bothers you, but it is just a minor display issue until another player disconnects and reconnects. It has been fixed for the next release.
