The original story (published October 06, 2021) follows:
There are many role-playing video games available such as The Witcher and The Elder Scrolls series. If you like to play these kinds of games, you might be familiar with the video game called “Guild Wars 2”.
It is a multiplayer role-playing video game developed and released by ArenaNet in August 2012. Guild Wars is available on various platforms, including Windows and Mac.
However, some players are experiencing animation loading and collision issues in Guild Wars 2 Mad King’s Clock Tower. Users are unable to make their last jump in the puzzle due to collision issues.
According to reports, the animations do not load correctly, the game stops in the middle of the animations, or sometimes they load too early.
Whenever players try to jump from the tower, they hit the wall instead of going through the vault room. As a result, players cannot complete their game due to these animation loading issues.
Glad they know the problem. Guess we’ll just have to wait for them to fix it to make Clock Tower. 4 times I “took the leap” 1st time, just thought I timed it wrong after doing this for YEARS. The 2nd and 3rd time were starting to get suspicious and the last time I called him. (Source)
I ran this 20 times in a row, hit a wall every time I jumped out the window. Need Anet Proof? I can record it and show it to you. I get angry (Source)
At first, players thought they probably timed the jump out of sync, but every time they try to jump they keep hitting the wall instead of going through the window.
After getting frustrated with the same situation several times, those affected took to the Guild Wars 2 Community Forum. Fortunately, ArenaNet staff acknowledged the issue and said they are currently working on a fix. .
However, no ETA has been provided as to when this annoying animation bug will actually be fixed. Also, currently there are no temporary workarounds that users can try.
All in all, you’ll have to wait for the developers to fix these animation loading and collision issues and hopefully a fix rolls out as soon as possible.
We’ll keep you posted as this story evolves as we notice anything new, so stay tuned.
