As many pvp'ers have noticed (it's happened to me at least three times and I've seen it happen to others as well) there's recently been some sort of bug that causes people to revive after they've been defeated. Sometimes it will fix itself and after 2 turns if the defeated party hasn't healed, the match will end. However, if the person heals within this timeframe the duel will continue. I'm not sure what happens if the defeated wizard kills the other, it's never progressed that far for me, but I imagine both end up losing or the whoever kills the other. It's almost like a guardian spirit but completely random.

I can provide video proof of this, but I'm sure this will soon get blown up.

Please look into this complete headache.

Just want to check something. Are the revivals occurring after Shadow Shrike boosted hits?

The health you generate is completely random. It's not 1,000.

You revive with the same amount of pips you went out on. So if you heal, the game continues.

Lucas, it's activated by cloaking tower shields, people are already exploiting it. Shrike has nothing to do with it, as far as I know.

It may well be activated by cloaking towers, but I think it has other triggers as well. I have experienced the bug against CPU opponents in Darkmoor, who cannot cloak.

well so far info on shield glitch might be related when shadow spell is casted so far info on it is when during pvp when defeated they revive with half health.

known info and report of glitch being known by KI member: http://www.duelist101.com/other-articles/help-new-pvp-glitch/

defeated all the minions first, then
Defeated Tyrfing with a Gaze of Fate from shrike

Tyrfing's name badge said "Defeated"
the next round he had 758 health
luckily I had a scorpion and defeated him again.

Yeah, it's not just a pvp bug, saw this happen the last run on Malistare in Darkmoor, came back a third time with less than 1000 health after showing up defeated... it's not a Guardian Spirit issue...

Professor Greyrose --

An announcement of some type from KI regarding this new glitch would be much appreciated, especially by pvp'rs who obsess over every victory and defeat. I've had at least a half dozen matches decided in the past week in a reverse from the real outcome due to this glitch. Perhaps it's true that ultimately the wrong decisions even out over time, but this situation really undermines the sense that the arena is an impartial and fair place where match decisions are just.

Also, if there is any specific information that folks can gather to help the team troubleshooting this issue, please let us know what it is and we will be on the watch for it.

Thanks, I love this game!

You guys should really fix this bug. I've lost more than 7-8 matches because my opponents come back to life and kill me. I lost the warlord rank i worked really hard for, and right now, i'm at the point where i might just cancel my membership for a while. I leave for airforce basic training in 4 months and i really want to spend my last days before i go playing this game in my free time. Please, fix the bug, and reset ranks back to before this bug was happening. It's the only fair solution to the problem so many hard working PVPers have faced

Also, every time this has happened, i have killed my opponent with shadow shrike. This may be a trigger, but as a storm lvl 100, that spell is crucial to pvp

It's been explained:

It's a problem when using Shrike. The damage bonus shows but doesn't get processed right.
