Sword and Bored: World clipping

This comic doesn’t need a long introduction: We’ve all experienced the annoyance of clipping in one form or another, but certain MMOs are infamous for making clipping and falling through the seams of a world a fate worse than death, with mechanics that actually work against the player trying to fix his buggy situation.

At any rate, I know that nearly everyone who is reading this comic has been where Mo finds himself. What’s your worst experience with this video game phenomenon?

@Oleg Chebeneev there are as many variations to world clipping as there are MMOs. Your limited experience is not gospel.

Early on in DAoC’s implementation of water combat for the classic servers, I was swimming around in RvR when I lost my internet. I log back in to find myself “falling” horizontally. It was half an hour before a GM arrived and I was moving so fast they couldn’t keep up long enough to keep me targetted. Eventually, they had to have a dev log into my account for me and TP me out.

My ESO characters frequently fall out of the sky. I usually get deposited in the sea amongst the slaughterfish. I fell a short way through the floor a couple of days ago and ended up eye-to-toe with the vendor I was talking to. I’ve had this sort of thing happen in most MMOs, but never with such frequency or predictability as ESO. It’s getting tiresome.
