Post-CI Oddity

Well, recently I jobbed aboard a Cursed Isle run. The strangest thing is, when we started moving back to the island, I KEPT GETTING TOKENS. Not to mention the fact my bilging didn't seem to do anything for the boat, despite how well I was doing. I'm not usually one to complain, but I dropped from renowned to respected because of this bug, and figured I'd post an image to show you all what happened:

Has anyone else had this happen? I'm confused as to how this happened and would like to prevent it in the future

It's a bug. It happens now and then and it's annoying yes. Sometimes it helps leaving the puzzle and go back or restart your ypp window though.

Re: Post-CI Oddity

I've experienced the same bug on sails coming out of CI, SMH and flotilla. If I see tokens when they shouldn't be there I now know to exit the puzzle quickly.

Re: Post-CI Oddity

This is your game falling party out of sych with the Y!PP server. If you continue puzzling with the tokens, you'll spot that you suddenly drop to booched after a LP or two, even if your client states you're performing Incredible (or whatever). The server reads the data, but it's wrongly formatted (inclusion of tokens) so simply gives you a 0 score instead.

If it happens, hop in and back out straight away, usually does the trick.
