[ windows key + shift + s ] brings up screenshot snipping tool in windows 7 and above. I use the steam version of GoW but if you are playing on pc windows 7 or above this method should work even if using a mobile emulator to play. (note: was also using Scaleguard Protector the whole event and never had an issue with it working correctly)
Great, thanks for the tip!
Must be one of those ghosts in the machine – another player had the same problem, but I don’t know how consistently. No real harm: I changed my team and weapon when I got to L130.
What consistently happens on the forums are people erroneously claiming a bug when the situation is easily explained by a game mechanic that the poster overlooked, didn’t know about, or didn’t correctly understand. That’s why showing the context with screenshots and/or video of a “bug” is the default instead of just making an unsubstantiated claim without that proof. @Dust_Angel is not being rude or ill-mannered by ask for visual proof, especially as others here are having a hard time replicating what you’re seeing. It’s not a personal attack on you, especially as that user is very helpful to the community in helping diagnose issues like this.
Sorry, “Screenshots, please, or it didn’t happen.” is rude. A simple “Screenshots, please.” is better.
I understand the desire for visual “proof”. I also understand the need to be able to replicate the problem. But telling me something didn’t happen, just because someone else can’t see the proof is lazy, inconsiderate, disrespectful, and just basically rude.
Another player mentioned the problem on a Discord channel I follow. I replicated the problem before reporting it. Sorry I couldn’t post the screen shots.
