# 1 Temporal backstep bug?
06-24-2013, 02:06 PM
So Ive tested this just to make sure it wasn't me just misreading things, and I noticed that when i activate my temporal back step right when I would die as its showing my ship explode then its showing my hull healing etc, that in pvp and pvp fleet games it still counting it as I died when I actually didnt since I did activate the ability in time and was about to heal myself. So im left thinking this is a bug of some kind since that would obviously be very unbalanced towards the enemy players against a wells class. Seeing how they could potentially get 2 kill counts for only one actual kill. The back step would be the same as activating miracle worker in time to save your ship etc. Note I normally activate it when my hull is at 10% or less, and use the time from my boff abilities to completely heal my shields and hull when otherwise I would have died.

Its not a bug. U actually died. You just reverted time prior to your death. Bad luck if u get killed again. Happens all the time. Time your backstep carefully.

Devs have also stated that this is working as intended.

but it dont make any sense why it would work that way since if "time" was rewound the history would show you never actually died. And that would also very much defete the whole point of the back step ability.

It makes sense. The history as u called is revolving around borders of your ship only. You are not rewinding the whole time itself.

And this folks is yet another reason why it is a bad idea to have timeships ...

not the whole of time is rewound though.

just yours.


and the backstep has more use then just a heal.
