# 1 PvP Map Bug?
03-12-2011, 11:26 AM
Has anyone encountered a bug when you are about 1/2 way through an Arena map and suddenly go to red alert, when there is nobody around?

Been encountering this lately at the start of matches and have no idea what's causing it.

Maybe somebody on your team used a Science/Engineering/Tactical Fleet ability. I'm not entirely sure whether this is still in the game, but these abilities used to put every member of the team into red alert.

Guess in Cryptic's wisdom its to prevent cloaked ambushing.


I swear, their decisions regarding PvP has gone beyond the absurd level.

Aye. It seemed like it was fine unless or until someone else on your team was at red alert. I've also been having this problem in Ker'rat while unteamed, away from everyone, and without getting any dialogue for the past couple of days.

Ugh......I wish they would fix the damn cloak already. Multiple threads have been started about this issue in multiple forums.......

This is the reason why all cloaking ships should be able to stay cloaked except when fired upon. First, it's canon. Second, it prevents getting caught off guard when someone uses tc, sci, or engy fleet abilities.

I was going to say, I've had this happen to me in Cap and Holds alot lately.

Just out of the blue "red alert" no buffs are on my bar and there's no one around, no CTBs or any other random spam nonsense.

Makes me glad I fly a ship that doesn't cloak.

I've been throw into Red Alert. It's like there is a trigger point on the map.

So, I don't think it is a map/cloak thing, but a red alert/map thing.

Someone else is reporting an issue where ships go on red alert if they leave Sensor Analysis radius... If that observation is correct, it could be yet another reason for randomly seeming red alerts.
