  • Serious Metallurgy Spy Glitch!

    Kabam, why am I losing Spies in Nettuno? WHY?

    I attack Anthropus Camp L4 with Metallurgy 3, no losses.


    I attack Anthropus Camp L4 with Metallurgy 4, no losses.


    I attack Anthropus Camp L4 with Metallurgy 5, no losses.


    Metallurgy 6 and Metallurgy 7 also had no losses, so I didn't bother with screenshots.

    However, when I attack Anthropus Camp L4 with Metallurgy 8, 619 Spies die!!!


    This very bad glitch, Kabam! Fix! Fix now! Metallurgy make troops stronger--not weaker! SPIES SHOULDN'T DIE!!!

    Metallurgy 8 is not the only cause of this glitch. I got the spy glitch in Pallantides when my Metallurgy was only 6. The glitch occurred shortly after Researching Clairvoyance L3.

    Anyone see a pattern here? Metallurgy 8 and Clairvoyance 3 are both requirements to unlock the Giants for training. Has anyone caused this glitch from upgrading Garrisons to L18 or upgrading Factory to L14 yet? I've already confirmed Metalsmith 10 does not cause the glitch.

      I did further testing. The Spy Glitch is caused by anything that enhances attack by 40% or more.

      In Pallantides where the glitch activated at Metallurgy 6, I was using a General with Attack +10%. Well, 10% + 30% from Metallurgy 6 = 40%.

      In other words, I was wrong about the glitch having anything to do with Giant requirements.

        Just lost 50,000 Spies after researching Clairvoyance L8, so it seems Clairvoyance can also cause the dreaded Spy Glitch.

          RNG

          For no losses just go with spy mission first, then second wave troops + 1 spy. This is not glitch, you always risk losing troops because of RNG when you send spies mixed with the ssds on attack mission. Also - don't forget - the medicine is making your spies dies harder, the metallurgy is increasing the attack, thus if the enemy make the first strike you will lose troops, no matter the metallurgy level. Higher medicine + higher life boost from your general - less losses. Its as simple as that

            Dude, did you even read the first post? Do you not see that I had no losses attacking with Metallurgy 3 and only 23,400 troops? Metallurgy 4 and no losses? Metallurgy 5 and no losses? Hundreds of battles with same troops and NEVER got losses?

            Yet, after upgrading to Metallurgy 8 and 26,000 troops, I suddenly got losses? How do you explain that? It is OBVIOUSLY a glitch!!!

              Did you spy first or just attack with spies? Plus if u have ljs and sds you can attack anything with zeroloss. Using a 6.5+ lifr general.

                There was no Spying whatsoever. Look at the images. If you Spy first, then you ALWAYS lose something. Aside from the last image which received casualties from a glitch, none of the other images show any losses.

                That last part doesn't make any sense. If you attack with both Lava Jaws and Swift Strike Dragons, you're are bound to lose Swift Strike Dragons simply because of the increased range. Or, did you mean to say Lava Jaws and Granite Ogres?


                Confirmed Permanent Causes of Spy Glitch
                Clairvoyance 8
                Metallurgy 8

                Temporary Cause of Spy Glitch
                Metallurgy 7 or less and a General with a high Attack: +%

                In this case, the glitch can be easily avoided by switching to Life or Defense Generals instead. As long as Clairvoyance is kept at L7 or less, you should be fine as long as your total Attack bonus % is less than 40.

                    And did you saw you used different type general for the battles with loses? look again closely in your own screenshots and you will see there is something different in the one you lost...

                      Played doa on Facebook n mobile is different spies do damage and matter now. If you spy a camp you take out the other spies and send one cause it respawns 1 stench Which is spy equivalent and your spy kills other spy in battle so your Dragon don't get caught fighting 1 spy at halfway so they can attack straight thru no delays.
