Re-creating Desync/Lag/Stutter with Stamina & Dodging

I Finally got a day off to post this, you can re-create the Lag/stutter/networking Issues/Rubberbanding/Desync issues with a couple of the core mechanics of the game; Stamina and Dodging.

  • What is your character name in New World: Pagemaster
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Camelot
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Stutter/Desync/Rubberbanding/lag
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: BUG
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: It has to deal with some of the core mechanics of the game, so it effects my gameplay all the time, in any situation.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Yes, If you just don’t Dodge or use Stamina
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: I’ll post videos when I can, but I’ll walk everyone through on how to recreate it and you’ll be surprised that people run into this issue multiple times a day.
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: See Below.

So recreating the issues:
I was in town just goofing off dodging around and I noticed my character would always desync/stutter every 10 seconds or so.
What I found was, When your character is moving and you deplete your Stamina to 0 by Dodging, if you let it refill to 100, Immediately after your Stamina bar hits 100 your Stamina bar flickers grey/yellow and your character stutters/Desyncs.

  1. Character having Desync/stutter issues after reaching 100 stamina from 0 Stamina.

    • You must fully deplete your stamina; reducing it any other amount than 0 will not give you these issues, it MUST be 0.

    • You SHOULD be moving, the issue is prominent when you’re moving around.

    • I’ve had Multiple players try this and they ALL came back with the same thing, they had the same issues.

    • It Happens in town, around the outskirts of the town and in the open world.

    • I’ve tested it with Light, Medium and heavy Loads and all came back with the same issues.

    • The Stuttering and Stamina bar flickering ranges from a few flickers to a handful of flickers, as far as I know there’s no rhyme or reason, its just the luck of the draw on how bad it’s going to be.

    • You can make the issue even worst, to the point that your character Stutters HARD and you essential do a short teleportation somewhere near where your character model was before.
      It doesn’t always happen, but you can recreate it with a few trys.

  2. If you let your Stamina deplete to 0 and recharge to 100, if you Dodge immediately after it hits 100 and during the Flickering/stuttering you will HARD stutter and essentially teleport a small distance from where your character model was before. (almost like you got hit with multiple stuns that move you, your character doesn’t know which way to go or what to do.)

    • While testing the hard stutter, I noticed your stamina bar will sometimes turn grey if you immediately dodge after it recharges to 100, you can still use your stamina, it’s just greyed out. If you deplete your stamina to 0, while its greyed out and then let it recharge, you still have the same stuttering issues.
      After letting it recharge again, it will reset back to yellow.

Hope this helps in some way, I’m going to do more testing. I’m also going to post this on reddit and then, if I don’t hear anything, I’ll post a YouTube video about it. Multiple people have posted about these issues, not exactly the same way, but it all comes back to when your stamina bar hits 100 after recharging from 0, you will stutter/desync.

 * I have not tested it with Shields Yet; Letting my Stamina deplete to 0 by blocking.

 * While testing the issues I noticed my game would lag/stutter Every 30 - 60 seconds, I don't know if this is me or just the server or the anti-cheat, but I'm pretty sure you can make the issues even worst if you somehow lineup the stuttering/desync from the stamina bug with the random server stutter.

If you have any other testing methods you’d like me to try out, I’d be more than happy to, I just want to get this out there and AGS to actually see it and say ANYTHING about these stutter/Desync issues. Please feel free to message or post on here on different methods of testing or what you come up with.

I don’t know if this will fix all the Desync/stuttering issues, but I do know Stamina and Dodging are a core mechanic for EVERYONE and this should be looked at or at least talked about.
