Bugged Ship?

    My mother was out on a small classic ship tonight in New Haven on Catskills, and several strange things began to happen.

    1. She could not leave the ship via the plank, teleport, recall, etc. even after properly docking.
    2. NPC beggar Calvin boarded the ship and would not and could not leave the ship, and he kept getting in the way making it impossible to click areas.
    3. I logged in my character and went to the docks to laugh.
    4. I was immediatedly sucked onto the ship and could not leave.
    5. NPC Quest Giver Carlota was escorted to the docks by another player. She was sucked onto the ship.
    6. My mother's character's name changed from Ambrose to Pip and her horse became PipJr.
    7. I paged a GM about being stuck on the ship with the NPCs and my mother.
    8. A few minutes later, my character was unmercifully thrown off the ship and into the very dock with his head sticking up out of the boards. After several tries, and fighthing a vortex that was trying to draw me back onto the ship, I was able to break free and ran screaming through New Haven like a little girl.
    9. My mother was then thrown from the ship and under the boards. She was also able to pull away from the ship's vortex after some stuggle.
    10. NPCs disappeared after several minutes.
    My mother paged a GM about the name change but had to sign off before one came. She'll try again tomorrow.

    I am concerned now about the name change because, in another thread a few weeks ago, I mentioned that my mother lost her etheral mount for her character Murray on GL on the same account, and the replacement horse bore the name MurrayJr. Her etheral reappeared a week later.

    Has any of this, especially the name change and horse situation, happened to anyone else? :wall:

    A bug report has been filed since the account itself must be bugged. The boat vortex may probably never be solved.:fight:

    I'm SO sorry, but you just made me laugh til I about cried!

    Your best bet, I think, is to not only page a GM but to go to ea.com and put in a ticket there too. Between the two, with a bit of luck, it'll get sorted. Good luck!
