Coma Sickness Timer

Siddhe/GMs,

 

This is a plea from the playerbase to review the timer on coma sickness.

 

Currently it seems as if it is:

Comasicknesstimer = Timeincoma

 

There are some players who have been in a coma for extensive periods of time.

 

Suggestion that you put a maximum cap of 1 RL week on coma sickness so players don't instantly leave upon return.

 

Thanks

I am confused by this post, as I do not see any recent tickets from anyone reporting an issue with coma sickness.

The forums are not generally the best place to request assistance for this type of issue. If someone is having an issue, I encourage them to submit a bug report, or, ring the GM bell (I am often on duty, and, available to take a look in the moment).

We are unable to troubleshoot/resolve issues if we do not know they exist - and, we need to know the specifics of the issue (the player, character, etc.) before we can attempt to resolve.

I thought there was a cap on it of 48 hours.... Real time. With it being less if you're woken up by an acolyte early. And you only hit 48 hours if you're not in the ward, checked in.

Anything longer than that sounds like a bug?

I raised this because a player recently returned and was allegedly told that they will have to wait out there coma timer. When asking the playerbase, quite a few people responded that they had been provided the same response. Even from my experience, I have had the same issue.

Unless it has been changed recently, the length of time that you experience coma sickness is calculated by the length of time you are in a coma. If you sleep off a coma for a year, you will experience coma symptoms for a year.

 

My apologies, I will stick to sending in @reports.

No need to apologize - it is just that, as I said, it is hard to troubleshoot issues via the forums. We need real bug reports in game so we can attempt to resolve issues. (I still have yet to see any bug reports from returning players or otherwise regarding an issue with coma recovery times being excessively long.)

If you were affected, or, know someone who was affected, please have them send in a bug report so we can troubleshoot.

@dragonus I am curious what the timer actually is now as well so I can update my new player guide. 

@analog Is it 48 hours standard after a coma now or is it some other calculation?

Someone who was experiencing this issue finally submitted a report - huzzah! Coma sickness is now capped at 7 days to account for those who may have been sleeping through a year-long coma. (As before, it can also be significantly less based on other factors.)
