Crinrict's How To Report a Bug via the AHQ Bug Forum -

Please report the bugs and issues you find to help the developers in knowing what needs fixed. The more Me Too's a bug report and/or an issue report has, the more likely it will be seen and fixed by the devs.

Check the Compiled List of Bugs thread first, to see if the bug has already been reported. See the link below:

Compiled List of Bugs
You might find helpful information. Also, you can click on the link to a bug report and on the first post you should see a "Me Too" button below the first post. This will help show that others are having similar issues and hopefully that should help get it some attention and will save you from posting something if you don't want to.

If a solution or work-around to your issue has been posted choose the reply that best answers your question and mark it as an accepted solution.

To mark a message as a solution click Accept as Solution on the reply.

If you'd like confirmation on how your case is progressing, the best thing to do is contact customer support again (

Open a new ticket and quote the case number for your existing case. The CS agent can verify how your case is going and give any information they may have on it with you. Using the Chat or phone option is the recommended option for getting updates.

Answers HQ forum FAQ Page:

Answers HQ - AHQ for short, is a players helping players forum and can't help with design decisions. Post feedback and "wish lists" at the Official Forum - Feedback.

Note: This post is locked as it's for informational purposes. If you have any bug related questions, please create a new topic here in the Gameplay Help Board. Give us as much details/information as possible on the issue so we can try to help.

Most of the bigger game bugs and issues are things that the game devs will need to fix or offer a work-around for.
