Infinite tanks bug

CanadianMikeCanadianMike Member Posts: 202
Okay, this just happened at level 4 of the current guild challenge (in German it's called "Müllcontainer", which would be trash cans or something similar). I had cleared all enemies and when the last one fell, 12 tanks appeared on screen. And the next round another 12, and then another 12 and so on, until the whole screen was filled with tanks. My men fought bravely, but no need to say, that was not survivable :D

Look at the screens I made:






If I remember correctly, I've seen a user reporting something similar, but I couldn't find the thread.

Is this a known bug?

    I just had it again, same level. My guess is that this is some sort of anti-exploit? Because both times it showed up several rounds after I had reached the exit. I was just killing some walkers yet to farm XP.

    Shut them out had the same surprise for farmers.

    @Teeceezy Not sure what happened here. This occured on the map called Dumpsters from this weekly challenge, The Suburbs. Instead of heading for the exit to complete the mission, I waited for more walkers to respawn in order to kill them and earn more XP. I do this with most missions as a way to farm XP. Usually, I will keep hitting "end turn" until more normal walkers respawn. This time, however, a bunch of tanks respawned instead and was even allowed to make a move before me.

    I have never seen that before.
    Maybe all those tank walkers were hungry for chicken. ;)

    This happens in some other challenges too. They do it deliberately to limit the XP farming.

    In the Shut the Doors, it was after 150 kills. Probably similar in these.

    Glitch reports belong in the Bug section but experienced players can tell this is no glitch lol
    Back from 2016 :p

    Its to prevent farming, not a glitch.

    I wasn't saying it was a glitch...I'm well aware of the farming on these challenges

    I was simply trying to get it merged with the other thread about this formed earlier today under Bugs for consolidation purposes...the mods specifically asked for help if duplicate threads are created...I'm not trying to cause issues or diminish the OP's post...just trying to help make the forum a better place for all of us

    @DangerB yea she definitely looks more like an Arya. I guess I was picturing Lena Headey when I named her :)

    I'll never understand why a game would be against farming. Without having unlimited gas the play value is about 15 minutes every 3 hours. And that's if you take your time in exploration missions or decide to bang out the challenges before you have to wait 30 minutes before you can play them again (using gold).

    Farming is what gives games replay value but when you limit the ability to play (or rather make it so that you have to use a form of currency to continue playing ie gold) it kinda seems self defeating in my opinion.

    If someone wants to continually repeat the same actions over and over to better themselves why would the devs want to prevent that? I guess I don't understand the logic (unless it's to get money buy buying and using gold)

    @DLich
    My take on this is that NG is trying to stop unattended auto farming
    I won't go into how that is done because it is considered cheating
    But auto farming is happening

    I had to check out Dumpster and see what the trigger point was for the Fatty spawn
    I stayed in the map a total of 44 turns (If I counted correctly)
    I killed 35 Zombies before the Fatties showed up

    I positioned my team like you see in the screen shot
    Two standing on the exit and one ready to leap on the exit

    I did not get the huge fatty swarm like I see in the other screen shots
    I only got 11 fatties
    I merged two screen shots into one long one so you could see the whole map
