Bug Report Standard Posting Procedure:
- Please browse the Known Issues thread, the Indeterminate bugs and the Client-side User Hotfixes thread for known bugs for the current version of the game to avoid duplicate entries.
- Doing a quick Search with key terms would also help immensely & is strongly recommended to avoid wasting everyone's time.
- Check the General Discussion forum stickies for any real-time updates that S2 is aware of before posting it here; it will avoid clutter here.
- Use the proper [Prefix] tag when posting. (For tooltip errors, use [Typo])
- Only ONE bug per thread/report. No lists.
- Go to Options -> Troubleshooting -> Repair Install and see if the bug still occurs.
- REMOVE ALL MODIFICATIONS and test to see if the bug still occurs.
- If you have mods installed (most people do), see this thread before posting in Bug Reports: http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...d.php?t=152925
- CHECK IF YOUR ISSUES ARE COVERED BY THE Knowledgebase and test to see if the suggested user-side fixes work.
- Please provide the following information for a bug:
Brief Description: A brief description of the bug - maybe a sentence or two.
How to Replicate: Detailed instructions on how to replicate the bug. If it's not easily replicated, poster should describe how they came across the bug the first time.

- This forum is for explicit Bugs only. It is not a complaint or suggestions forum.
- Bug reports are subject to rejection if the original reporter does not answer a question by a moderator within a reasonable time frame.
- Bug reports are subject to rejection without notice if they do not meet this criteria closely enough.
- Note: All bug reports are tested before being confirmed. It is best if you provide very detailed instructions on how to replicate a particular bug if applicable.
- We recommend that you do NOT bump your reports. Moderators are trained to work from the oldest (last page) reports to newest.
- Do not repost your thread unless you have a valid issue (new evidence, a long time bug not being fixed when it was moved to the Fixed subforum, etc.) - PM a Bug Reports moderator forums instead.
- Do not post rage threads if your thread got rejected; take it up in a polite manner via PM with a Bug Reports moderator. If you do break this rule, infractions may be issued to the offender.
- Global Forum Rules apply to this forum as well: http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...d.php?t=319192
- Lingering threads in the main section (~5+ days of inactivity) that do not get enough information to warrant a move to Confirmed/Fixed/Indeterminate will be rejected.
- Please use http://imgur.com/ as the image hosting site if possible. Other image hosting sites (Dropbox, puu.sh) are fine as long as copy-pasting the URL directly links to a high-resolution version of the image. Do not use tinypic or imageshack as there is a bunch of clutter most of the time!
- All Rift Wars related bugs should be posted here.

Updated image hosting site information.
In short: do not use tinypic or imageshack.Please use http://imgur.com/ as the image hosting site if possible. Other image hosting sites (Dropbox, puu.sh) are fine as long as copy-pasting the URL directly links to a high-resolution version of the image. Do not use tinypic or imageshack as there is a bunch of clutter most of the time!
New prefix tags added:
[Sound] - self-explanatory
[Item] - this is meant for in-game items, not the items you get in the HoN store
[Web] - this is more for my personal use at this time, but you can try and report Website bugs through this. There's a big chance I'll reject or redirect you to Website Feedback though.
More new prefix tags:
[Visual Graphics] - this replaces the old Effects, Animations, Graphics and Art tag since they all basically meant the same thing
