Resurrecting a long dead thread..
Today I was in PvP, and I went into a 1v1 "27- no lire" room, using my Ronan. The host was an Arme, probably level 25 or 26. The game starts, and right away, there's a graphical glitch. Has anyone ever seen when some people glitch up, and appear just like part of their taunt, moving around just looking like that, instead of the normal animations? Well, this Arme was just a frame of her taunt running around.
So Arme runs around, and I'm pursuing her, and she's not using any skills, or fireballs, or anything, so I'm thinking that she's running around, saving up for a meteor.
Times goes on, and Arme obviously has enough MP for a meteor now, but hasn't used any skills at all. I've hit her a few times, but she's never hit me, and finally, I get her to fatal, and take her first life off a little later.
Now, the weird part.
The Arme has lost its first life, 1/3 (this was Elven Forest, by the way) lives lost, and now, she comes back as Lass. This isn't a tag match at all - and this Lass isn't graphically glitched up, his animations are playing normally.
So now the level 27 Lass is beating me up - and I'm still trying to figure out what exactly is going on here. I lose one life, two, then three, and when the match ends, I save a replay.
I go over to the Server tab and look at the replay - and the replay doesn't have any graphical glitches, the Arme is using normal animations...
EXCEPT THAT HER ANIMATIONS ARE LASS'.
Arme is literally running around just like a Lass, double jumping just like a Lass, and using skills (I never saw any skills get used) like a Lass. Turns out, every time he used a skill, I managed to grab him. The replay shows him using various skills at various times - and it becomes evident why he was running around, because he was trying to get me with shuriken.
After I take his first life off, he starts getting to use skills - and this is when he starts being able to hit me. Now, after I take the Arme's first life away, she doesn't return as Lass, like she did in the match - but in the replay, she continues to look like Arme. So, now this Arme can damage me - and when she uses Final Strike, she goes up into the air like Lass does, and does the little throwing animations, but no bursts of enery came out - because this is still an Arme in the replay, while when the Lass was using it in the match, everything looked like a Lass. And Arme is grabbing in the same way Lass does, her body moving just like Lass. It's the craziest glitch I've ever seen.
I don't have a screenshot, because it's hard to depict in a still frame, but I can give the replay file to anybody who wants it.
