Darth Vader kills instead of player

Issue: While playing Heroes vs Villains I was killed by someone playing as Vader and when it said who killed me it just said DARTH VADER. The next match I was on the imperials' side so I tried playing as him to see what would happen and I didn't get any kills as him.
Can you reproduce this issue 100% of the time: Possibly it occurred in more than one match
Details on how to reproduce the issue: Getting kills as Darth Vader in Heroes vs Villains

Edit: After reviewing some footage I took it appears that I did get one kill against infantry that I missed while playing but two of the heroes were not accounted for. So, it may only be hero kills that are not accounted for.

  • Here's the footage I recorded (sorry about the commentary):
  • Xbox One, HvV

    Vader and Luke's standard attack is dealing damage but not rewarding points or kills when used. You'll notice when someone is killed by a standard attack as it'll say "____ has been defeated" in yellow instead of crediting the kill. Additionally as a player you won't see any score registering for your attacks. As the victim of these attacks it simply says "Killed by Luke Skywalker/Darth Vader" with no player name or information.

    I know it definitely happens vs other heroes, not sure if it happens against regular infantry.

    Anyone else have this?

    Editor/Cinematographer - Anoh is pronounced: AhNo.

    I'm guessing when they tweaked the lightsabers to puncture through bacta bomb something broke somehow? Perhaps they gave it a new class/tag and in doing so they forgot to update a line of code which links the lightsaber to the user, so the damage happens but it doesn't know who did it? Without being in the dev team in their project I wouldn't know :tongue:

    Do you know if it still gives you infantry kills?

    It does give infantry kills and gives points for using the abilities - force push/choke etc.

    Hmm interesting. Odd that it's just with hero health. Yup the abilities are indeed fine!
  • Yeah I noticed this. Super annoying!
  • I noticed alot of heroe/villain kills in HvV showing up empty, just the yellow note of them being defeated, without awarding any score to anyone.

    luke also does this, it's very bizarre
  • It happens to me all the time when I kill a hero or villain in hero vs villains. It's very frustrating. Please fix the problem EA!
