161459 duplicated/lost - NO BUG

Postby eaterofworlds » 06 Nov 2019, 23:19

The game titled "Versailles for Ambassadors" appears to have been overwritten by a second copy of the same game starting up out of the pending queue. The "new" game is 161459 - I assume it's the same number as the "old" game.

I'd noticed the second copy in the pending queue and thought I might report it here as a bug on its own. The second copy's listing showed more than 7 players registered (a couple names were repeated) and persisted after the original game started.

But now the "pending" copy has moved into waiting mode and appears to have overwritten the active game.

Sounds like a fun problem to figure out . . . thanks.

There is no bug. This is a game with "NMR Protect" turned on and such games reset if a player NMRs in the first phase of the game. The offending player is auto-surrendered and the game will return to waiting for players. All messages are saved and are available once the game re-starts (at the beginning of the first phase) after a replacement player joins.

The shoutbox reports Gwalchmai auto_surrendered as GERMANY, so when you get a full board back and all players confirm, the game will restart.
