Marvel Heroes’ Ant-Man patch plagued by nasty bugs (no, really)

Yesterday’s Ant-Man patch in Marvel Heroes introduced more than virtual insects to the game, as bugs of a more serious nature plagued the servers. Issues such as lag, disconnects, and even losing progress impacted players. There were reports of players experiencing brutal rollbacks as well.

Gazillion moved quickly to address the bugs and scheduled an emergency patch last night. The patch wasn’t comprehensive, but did fix several problems, including the aggravating disconnects that players were experiencing. A memory issue was identified but won’t be dealt with until next week.

DamnDirtyApe Armsbend in two years they’ve added one new story.

Armsbend DamnDirtyApe But that’s not really true.  In the past year or so they’ve added the three different one shots, industry city patrol, cosmic MM and ICP, the omega system, and all of the raids.  Also little stuff like unlimited respecs and the currency tab.  This is addition to the sidekicks, pet bonuses, extra heroes and villains and such which could be considered cash shop stuff (although I buy most of my heroes with splinters).

Ha! I was just about to say the exact thing, and then I scrolled down >_<

Tsk Armsbend, that’s low. For every argument that says Marvel stole from DC, there’s another saying that DC stole from Marvel. Everyone stole from everyone, so in the end, who the hell cares?

DamnDirtyApe Content tied to the cash shop.  They dont really put out much content otherwise that I’ve seen much of.

Let me rephrase.

They should tell everyone it’s intentional

I just slept off a bad case of jet-lag (seriously, just say no to red eye flights) and am about to claim my Ant-Man gift from the panel, I hope things are stable enough for practicing antnados! I’m honestly more interested in leveling my Scarlet Witch with the new story progression, though, so here’s hoping I don’t have that memory issue, blegh.

Gaz may be great at pumping out content but unfortunately this kind of thing isn’t uncommon.

I think I was quite lucky apart form a couple of minor lag spots in Midtown I had almost no issues.

Loving Ant Man too, he’s a lot of fun.

Kageokami, oTQ Steam has better download speed for MH, imo. Also, if you do have a Steam account you could have a friend do a backup of MH then you can copy it to the correct directory on your computer and do a restore.

Kageokami, oTQ why wouldn’t you keep your computer turned on for days and days? Mine stays on for years, only being powered off (as opposed to reboot) for natural disasters.

Armsbend ya thats one the good things i really like about path of exile they have never messed up a patch as bad as Gaz have and they usally small patches about 500mb or less they have never had any game breaking bugs just minor annoyances till  they get a hot fix in that day or the next still have a new sicon i’m working on that just hit act two and with the way marvel heroes is messed up i’l probably get her up to the new expansion zone before they get marvel heroes working right and Gaz that is how you do a major expansion right in a game was only about 2.6gb only took me about 3 hours on my 225kps connection to download and once i finished the servers where all ready up and playable with no bugs they have had about 5 hot fixes or so but only about cpl mb and the servers where up while they pushed them out no 2 to 3 hour server down times

Kageokami, oTQ at the min i’d wait least a month till the next major patch to see if they are starting to get their act togather they used to be really good with their patches but the last three months it’s been pretty much unplayable after they patched diffently get it threw steam and use their launcher cause their new launcher is  really really bad the worest launcher i have ever used

Kageokami, oTQ May be beneficial to have a friend with a fast connection download it and put it on an SD card/thumbdrive and hand it to you.

I would like to try this game out but, there are so many updates ( if you are getting started ) that it take forever to download.  Any advice besides keeping your computer turned on for days and days?

Yeah, not sure why there’s a need to pick sides. I just read what I like and perception be damned.

Armsbend BalsBigBrother Same themes different flavours.
DC generally seem to be heroes trying to be people while Marvel is generally people trying to be heroes.  As
with any generalisations there are exceptions on both sides.  
Its all
good as far as I am concerned the more the merrier so people have a
better chance of finding what they like individually  :-)

BalsBigBrother DC is never sacrilege in Marvel.  That is where they get all of their ideas from.

And I just bought my first lvl 80 legendary yesterday. Kinda scared to log in now that I see this because I’m afraid of a roll back with my luck.

Yeah its been a little rough from my playing of it last night but I am sure Gazillion will sort things out, I didn’t DC (sacrilege in a Marvel game) but I did experience some pretty bad lag spikes of the hit things and wait 10 seconds to see the results type bad. Hopefully things will be some what better this evening.
That said between the lag spikes I was having a lot of fun with Ant Man :-)

I’m finding the patch brought in more lag than I’m willing to put up with so I started building my witches and rangers and what-nots on Path again.  It was a fun month or so but it is over.

Glad they’re addressing the bugs. Ant-Man has been fun to play so far.
