You can read my quotes from the last thread about this if you want, but I’ll summarize again: I believe Madlen and Captain Morgan when they say that this bug has been “solved”, i.e. it will not occur any more. This is good and I’m glad they acted pretty quickly (considering that everything takes a while here). While the bug may be “solved”, it has not be “resolved”, and if you believe them (and I do), this will happen when all of the current blessings expire.
This part is not very satisfactory for a lot of reasons. I have, and continue to request as strongly as I know possible, that the player base gets periodic updates on the resolution of this bug until it is fully resolved. If this isn’t done, it leads players to distrust the dev team, as we’ve seen in this thread and other threads. It makes players wonder if the original bug has actually been solved or not, which I think we’ve seen in this thread, which is why I asked @HeliosSRB if he thinks another alliance has trebuchets when they shouldn’t. It leads players to rant and rave about other players, which we’ve seen in this thread. In short, it promotes toxic posting.
@Madlen, I think updating players on the specifics of the resolution of this bug is one of the most important things you can do for the OR community right now. I hope you agree. We’ve essentially been told “It will be fixed when it’s fixed”, which is not really a helpful answer anymore.
