App Bugs

For bugs that stop the game from installing or work please refer to the technical support page https://www.everlastingnight.org/557/technical-support/

Out of the game

The academy videos won’t stop buffering on the android version, making them impossible to watch.

Masquerade Magnus Skin is not available even with 4.13 or 1A client strangely.

There is a never released Lorelai Skin in-game, but you can not play with it.

In-game bugs

Adagio

Adagio’s A won’t apply Mortal Wound through spellfire if the target is too distant. Even though he still gets the burned by Arcane Fire, you won’t apply mortal wound. Instead, if the target is closer, you’ll burn AND apply mortal wound.

Alpha

Alpha may become unkillable during reboot. Her HP bar will appear to be depleted, but she will not die, guaranteeing her second life.

While in reboot, Alpha will have a mark indicating Caine’s C can execute her. If you use the skill on her you will even get the “executed” messages, but instead of killing Alpha, you will just reduce her barrier reboot by whatever your damage on C is.

Alpha’s A in-game shows a range of 10.0 at all levels. However, outside of the game, in the hero page, on overdrive the range increase to 12.0
This is just a text error, the hero in-game will have a range of 10 pre overdrive, and 12 on overdrive.

Ardan

On Iphone 8 plus the game might crash when using Ardan’s A on an ally https://www.reddit.com/r/vainglorygame/comments/eplwu8/whenever_i_vanguard_as_ardan_the_screen_starts/
Credits to ExtrapizzaVG for finding this bug!

If Tony’s C knock back the enemies into Ardan’s C they might not get stunned, or they might be stuck mid-air (in this case, they might even become “transparent” after returning on the map with a dash ability).

Caine

Caine is missing skill type on all skills, and the range is wrong for B and C

C/E

While in reboot, Alpha will have a mark indicating Caine’s C can execute her. If you use the skill on her you will even get the “executed” messages, but instead of killing Alpha, you will just reduce her barrier reboot by whatever your damage on C is.

Caine’s C will register the kill as of someone else, if a different hero from Caine hit the target before he was killed from the execution

Once an item enlarges, it may not be possible to drag nor sell it. We are unaware of how this bug triggers. The only solution is to restart the game. Very common on Android emulators.

In some circumstances, you might be unable to auto attack until you move your hero, even though you are in range for your basic attacks. This is common after Krul’s A or Rona’s B.
Credits to Nekreirypt for finding this bug!

Some sounds of skills and basic attacks may turn off randomly during a match, or become extremely loud.

Players queue for a game mode and end up in a different one (queue for ARAL ends up being ranked 5V5, 3v3 ranked becomes casual 5v5 etc.)

Unable to scroll properly in draft

The turrets may ignore targets in range. Not clear what triggers this. This happens in both 5v5 and 3v3 modes.

The game may desync leading the character to appear in a different place from where he truly is.

The hitbox of turrets, armories and vain crystal is a bit awkward and does not match the figure shown in-game. Due to this, some skills, such has Skaarf ‘s B might miss even though to the player it appears has if he hit the target correctly

Players may get stuck in ARAL, unable to move if they move to a certain spot

Old bugs

Links in this section will be restored later, sorry!

Since SEMC removed most features in Community Edition client these bugs are not present anymore. We left them here just in case this list is needed in the future

Team name and members might not show up in EU after 20/03/2020 maintenance: http://everlastingnight.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Team-Bug-EU.png

Friend requests might not be sent. The game will say “can’t find player in this region”, even though the username is correct.
In this screenshot, I sent a friend request to a guild member through the friend request button, so there is no way the username is wrong: http://everlastingnight.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Friend-Request-Bug-EU.png

Screen spill (iPad Air), this happens when you view the blueprint on a skin’s crafting screen
Image: http://everlastingnight.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Screen-Spill-Bug.png

The leaderboard might be removed at the start of a new season. This is not a bug but intentional. It’s temporarily disabled while the new season info populates
From a SEMC developer: https://www.reddit.com/r/vainglorygame/comments/epdk3l/update_411_leaderboard/fejd67o/

Friend requests reappear every time you restart the app, even if you declined them. These may also be from random people who have never sent you a friend request.

In some circumstances, your hero may move through the map without using his “walk animation”. You can’t use abilities during this time, and you need to click the recall button or restart your app to fix this
Video: https://old.reddit.com/r/vainglorygame/comments/foree0/a_seriously_big_bug_happened_when_im_in_a/

Messages sent to friends might be repeated multiple times
Image: https://i.redd.it/jf9fl5qrxnk41.jpg

Some people’s friend list will result full even though it isn’t.

The game might automatically scroll down in the guild members list until there is nothing to see. Other times, you might be unable to scroll back up, as it freezes for an instant and then places you back down.

Account level might be reset to a lower level (example, you’re level 24 but reset to 12)
Video: https://www.reddit.com/r/vainglorygame/comments/ejgn67/game_ruining_bug/

Opening chests will freeze the game very often. Seems to happen very rarely on the pc version of the game. In particular, on mobile devices it’s guaranteed to happen if you open a chest before spoils of war

The screen rewards post match might not show up sometimes. You still get the rewards though (glory etc.)

Sometime you might open a chest and not see the animations that shows the items you obtained. When this happen, you still get the items. https://www.reddit.com/r/vainglorygame/comments/e28wmp/chance_boxes_dont_dont_give_all_chance_chests/

Sometime you might see duplicate blue prints. That’s just a glitch as obtain duplicates is impossible (they would be converted to essences). When you see a duplicate restart the app. DO NOT CRAFT your blueprint thinking to have multiple ones, or you’ll end up without any blueprint at all.

Long nicknames can make the UI awkward in the leaderboard
Image: http://everlastingnight.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Bug-2-scaled.png

After a match, “my guild” in leaderboard does not show anyone and you need to restart the app.

Party chat often does not work. If you click RETRY it will NOT work, while often, if you wait without clicking RETRY the chat might start working after a few seconds

Old Battle Pass offer may still appear in the market behind the other offers. By clicking on it you’ll lose the ICE and receive enough back
Image: https://www.reddit.com/r/vainglorygame/comments/e6vkta/dont_tap_and_hold_this/

Some older devices might have problems using the chats. The only one that will work is the one in a match, unless they lower the quality settings. This happened with phone model Z557BL

Black screen in the market section
