There's been a few cases where there are only 3-4 event raids open. Most prefer to jump into a raid that is fairly recently spawned, but this is much harder with this event. Once say 25-30 toons are in, most don't want to join because the OS phases are already done.

This could be mitigated with more raids spawned early in events (like now). The OS phases also seem much too short and the boss phase too long. I think so far I've only had two instances where I've actually finished a 6e OS round before the phase is over (it's not killing speed, because in several I've still finished the raid top).

First I have to say it, the event is excellent but need to agree with Illy, OS phases end too soon, I'm lucky when I manage to get close to the second 6e in one phase.
Would love to see more waves on OS phases.

Regarding open raids, new raids should spawn after all open raids are 30% or over as entering in the second phase means not getting enough rpp which deters many from getting in even if there are only 20-25 people in it.

Sigee, which form is it and if it's the bats I have a solution to your problem. It has already happened to me and I got out of it.

Hi Sara :-) It was the bats. I logged in from a different device and although I was still in the same raid which finished hours ago I was able to kill them and leave the raid. Now back on my iPhone and all is OK. What was your escape method?

For some reason if the far rt bat is the last alive, the glitch kicks in. For future reference, just make sure that one doesn't die last. As for getting out of it, I just kept logging in and using break runes followed by an atk strong enough to kill it. Took me 4 or 5 tries but eventually I was able to crit hit kill it.

Bat Bug

The right bat in the Dracula fight has an ability called "Swarm" that casts haste on its allies. Currently the ability does not selfcast so in the rare chance that they are the only ones up and cast it, the game will bug out.

Troubleshooting tips until we can get this fixed is to use interrupts when the attack is about to go off and a strong attack to try and finish them off before the attack goes off.

In future encounters, focus the right bat down first to avoid the bug. We apologize for the inconvenience at this time.
