    Unusual couriers no longer show effects

    Since this is a widespread issue among all unusual couriers, I have mass merged all the threads on the matter, and I'll be compiling a list of effected couriers beneath. If your courier or essence combination isn't on the list, please report it here. ~Hefaistus

    This thread used to maintain a list, but at this point, it suffices to say that all unusual couriers are affected.

    The following method used to work until the 09-05-2013 patch:

    Practise with bots mode(without equipping the unusual courier)==> Default courier
    Practise with bots mode(equipping the unusual courier)==> Unusual courier with effects

    Create a lobby mode(without equipping the unusual courier)==> Default courier
    Create a lobby mode(equipped the unusual courier BEFORE creating a game, thru player inventory)==> Unusual courier WITHOUT effects
    Create a lobby mode(equipped the unusual courier AFTER creating a game, thru player inventory)==> Unusual courier WITH effects

    This means:
    1. Game servers failed to check EFFECTS TYPE of player's equipped Unusual courier, a bug
    2. In bots game, the GAME itself checks the EFFECTS properly
    3. When DE-EQUIP and RE-EQUIP the courier again in game, server check and recognize the Unusual EFFECTS
    4. The bug most likely to occur during the game LOADING time.
