    so the Bo got guard wacked twice already in vvv towns. There happen to be blue guards walking around vvv towns. Bo accidentally attacked the blue guards by dropping pots (supernova, and conflag). Dropped the pot to combat a stealther and got guard wacked for it. Bo thought these guards were supposedly turned off. And yes the Bo is red.

    The Guards are only turned off during the battles, was the battle over?

    Most likely. It's happened to me a few times when I withered. Then I realized the battle ended.

    no no this was during the battle, go try it out. There are blue guards walking round the vvv cities, and if youre red and hit them area effect you are toasted in one shot.

    This happens in two circumstances.

    1. As a red you've placed a field in the VvV town, the battle ends and you get guardwacked.

    2. You leave the VvV area, and the VvV battle ends, however as you left the town your blue status bar remains and you believe the battle is on going. (this is a bug)

    I have had multiple experiences during the actual fight that if your area effect goes off and hits a blue guard he GWs you.

    Trouble is Kyronix you don't always know the battle is over. The gump doesn't always update correctly.

    IMO a period where the town zone is enabled (so you cannot place fields) but the guards are not then 5mins later the guards are added (time for all fields to fall).

    Area affects and area spells have always been the same just need to be careful :).

    You should be getting the scroll gump at the end of the match which has some information about stats, which is separate from the battle status gump, are you not getting that gump too?

    Pretty sure I sometimes haven't either. Not sure of the specifics behind it though. Next time I'm in a VvV town I'll see what triggers it. I may have been out of the VvV zone (the Skara moongate) when it happened, I'll try to replicate it shortly when the next battle on Atlantic starts.

    Sometimes you don't but sometimes due to fighting and movement you click it off and don't really notice. But when the battle is over there is no grace period and your instantly vulnerable.

    I would prefer the gump to simply state the battle is over with the option to view the match stats.

    What is killing people are the old chaos and order guards. They are still walking around and if you flag them they kill you in 1 hit. Its happened to a guild make right in front of me 3 times and after i rezed. him i also got killed by the same guard.

    No you can really still get guards wack even in a battle , these blues guards wandering in the cities as the OP mentionned, if you flag on them by double clicking, area effect damage or direct damage on them, they guard wack you. They should be turned off at least when its in a city battle @Kyronix

    would be nice if the end of battle gump does not pop up in the center of the screen. i was dismounted and running from 3 people when this happened to me. didn't end well, i can tell you that.
