    Default Warfront: Codex bug?

    During a Warfront in the Codex map, the match suddenly ended without a true winner. The time had not expired and neither team was at 1000 points. Is this legit?

    Time ran out... When the warfront ends on time, their is a 2:00(maybe 1:00?) countdown started after 0:00 is reached... This is what happened.

    Huh? There was 30 seconds left on the clock when the game ended. I waited ten seconds before I took the screenshot. I don't understand what you are implying.

    This happens almost every match I enter. I assumed it was a bug.

    Same here, had one end earlier with over a minute left. The funny thing is we were roughly 10 points behind, and had just captured 3. If it had played out we would have won.

    Even the other side had a laugh out of it. No idea why it happens. Maybe the display clock is simply off from the real clock.

    Lag on your end I would assume. The clock is managed locally from what I've seen so far so if your game freezes or there is too much delay between you and the server the clock can become inaccurate. I've seen the same thing in many other games, for example WAR where BOs would often flip while to you it seemed like there was between 1 and 15 seconds left on the clock. The longer the timer the larger the difference.

    edit: this is particularly true if you join the game midway.

    This is the most likely scenario.

    Oh so everyone on each team is lagging? Because the Guardians and Defiants both talk about it after a match sometimes. And we all have the same time left.

    Today we lost 893 - 892 with 27 seconds left. I think it's a bug that needs to be fixed.

    AFTER the normal time runs out you get another 30s or so timer, after those 30s run out you are automatically booted from the warfront. The timer in your screenshot is most likely the boot timer.

    Sometimes it ends with 3 minutes or more left of the timer. And I'm watching the timer like a hawk; well used to until I determined the timer was irrelevant. I say it's a bug.
