Keyboard shortcuts trigger when focus on in-game chat [Bug]

Postby judge_reinhold on Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:35 pm

Operating System: Windows 7
Browser: Google Chrome
Scripts/third party programs used: BOB/ none

Concise description:
    Best way is if you have a game where it's your turn. This demonstration will use the "n" keyboard shortcut
    Open up a game window, not the one where it's your turn, plus some other window (like this one) to alternate focus with.
    Click on the chat box, press "n". Did anything happen? Maybe not yet.
    Click back to the other window, or use alt-tab to switch.
    Click directly into the chat box of the game window, or use alt-tab to switch back. Either way, you will see the blinking cursor, focus on chat box.
    Press "n", now you are in your next game


Specifics:
Now, imagine the possibilities. You type a space, and suddenly attack phase is over, or the turn is ended before you performed a critical reinforce. This bug SUCKS. Please fix asap.

It happened to me too. Several times. It seems to happen randomly so I don't know what the problem is but that's definitely a bug.

It happened to me as well. ive started turns, and ended forts withou wanting to do it.
I was only writing in chat and im sure my cursor was in the proper chatbox
It only happens sometimes(maybe a strange keyboard combo?)

ok, just tried the Begin turn thing..it worked as described before

Thats is really an hassle, ive did some critical mistakes because of this, please look into it

Just go change your hotkeys in BoB to something unusual.

This happens to me sometimes. For me more in speed games. This is when my cursor is directed on the box. Make sure you click outside the game chat before you use any keyboard commands.

The problem is that i dont want to use those commands. It happens to me when im writting on chat.

Ex: if im going to write a sentence while im taking my turn, the 1st time the letter "n" or "e" is pressed it will trigger automatically the "go to next game" or "end phase" action.
So if i try to write down the word "hello", as soon as i get to the 2nd letter it will end attacks.

This is a real problem for me . It has caused me some major mistakes in team games while discussing a live turn

Yeah, I've started a game by accident twice. One was an important clan turn with 23 hours left on the clock.
Bloody annoying. I wish this would be addressed ASAP.

Are we ever going to hear from anyone about this? I talked to some mod/programmer in chat and he confirmed it was an issue (after I guided him through it).

I just effed up another game b/c of this.

speed game jumping[Bug]

Postby Gilligan on Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:25 pm

Concise description:
  • during a speed game, sometimes when I type in the chat box it jumps to my next game

Specifics:
  • Not always - occasionally - i'll be typing in the game chat of a speed game, then all of a sudden I'm at my next playable game. Definitely not clicking "next game" cause that's no where near the chat box.

This is a known bug when typing the "N" character after switching tabs. I'll merge this thread in later.

^^^ THIS ....

I am oh so respectful and patient about most everything CC, but this is driving me out of my mind. I just ended a turn in an escalator and lost the game for my team. I am constantly switching to the next game and sporadically ending turns when I chat during play.

Short answer: don't chat while playing.
Long answer: please give us a way to disable shortcut keys.
