I just had an unusual situation. I was in the Moors when I encountered a pirate ship. I initiated the fight but when I got to the fight screen (the loading screen) the load bar was already full and while the music still played and the flames on the skull still flickered, there was no input response and the actual battle refused to load. I had to restart the client to regain control.
Aha! Thanks for that report, @Justice; I think I might know what that is. We’ll look into it!
