1 - Dueling in the wrong lobby

 

If you were to spectate a game, then attempt to join/host a game lobby, you will be taken to the game lobby you last spectated. Sadly, the game lobby would be glitched, and there is a probability of you getting kicked out of the server, requiring your to refresh the page.

 

2 -  Frozen Deck

 

 

When playing against a deck that is very search heavy; there is a chance of you not being able to move your cards. You'll be able to right-click them, but you can't drag them around, and right-clicking them then selecting a command won't do anything. The chat log would be updated as if you successfully conducted these moves for some reason. To fix this, quit the game lobby.

 

3 - Invisible Cards

 

Some decks are glitched for whatever reason, causing them to not show in-game for other players. Only the owner (and sometimes spectators) will be able to see the affected cards. Moving a card that is "invisible" will cause the owner's chat log to be updated with the action conducted using the card, but it won't show for the opponent. To fix this, reveal any number of cards, then quickly shuffle your hand.

 

4 -  Ghosts

 

If you enter Duel Portal's "Duel" lobby, you'll probably notice a huge amount of players hosting. You can request to duel them, and wait till they relog. It seems like anyone who afks in the duel lobby and never relogs causes this "ghost" glitch. Basically, the in-game name is there, but the player is offline. You're never going to get an answer since the players aren't there. These "ghosts" are eventually removed when DP goes down for maintenance. Until then, simply ignore them.

 

5 - Cheat Portal

 

Now, this is one of the more severe bugs. In the latest update, a zoom-in feature was added. When hovering your mouse over a recently added card, you could see their full card art. This seemed like neat mechanic at first. But then, people started realizing that it wasn't programmed well into the game. Lets say your opponent moved one of their face-down cards to another slot on the field (Maybe they're OCD as hell or whatever). Well, by hovering your mouse over the slot that previously contained the once face-down card; you'll be able to see a zoom-in of the card, as if it was face-up on the field.

 

These are some of the glitches I found on DP ^ Just wanted  to list them down.

Ran into a few of these the other day. Thanks for letting me know of the others though!

Yeah, DP is glitchy as FXXX, but still an impressive piece of digital engineering, considering its scope and compatibility with other sites like YCM. Disconnects, bugs and glitches are annoying, but as a whole its still fun, if you can get a couple of pals together to actually play. Not too many people online from what I see.

If anything, the issues are a deterrent to people actually being active like in the past, plus the prevalence of some of the DN crowd coming over and otherwise making it an unpleasant experience (i.e. make broken cards, rulesharking to no end, etc). This is not implying that DN players do nothing but cause problems, but there have been a few in the past who acted the same as they did on Dueling Network before the shutdown. 

 

Once sea moves things to Unity, hopefully the bugs in here get fixed (that, and the other stuff concerning players).

You can redirect any other issues to the sticky thread.

O.o he's moving things to Unity?  Cool!  I think.  Anyways, yea, the bugs seem to have pushed people away somewhat.  Nobody knows what the legendary CLASH deck is anymore.  *cries*
