Hey, just thought I'd report something a bit freaky that hapenned in a server today. I had fired a full-power kamehameha at someone in the air on the esf_arrival map, and they blocked it. I don't know from my end, but I think he was crushed against the wall and killed.

Next thing I knew, I was stuck beam struggling, while he respawned with the beamhead stuck to him. It followed him everywhere, but never exploded. I eventually had to disconnect to stop it. I hope this is helpful!

Yes it hapend to me but it's hapen's when you block and relesh block and block again when you in the wall and the beam will remain in you the only way to get rid of it it's to retry on the server

Dude, that's pretty awesome.

I might be wrong, but...

DJ-Ready, I'm ashamed at you. Isnt that EVM you're playing?! (the charge aura + left click thing)

AKA, maybe it has something to do with EVM?

I never even knew there was a beam power struggle bug.

Were you on a EVM server? EVM related bug perhaps?.

I didn't take EVM into account. I figured it might be my duty to report such a thing. How would I know its an EVM bug and not an ESF bug?

Hmmm... Seems like a very very very difficult thing to reproduce... but logically, to figure out if it's one bug or the other, would be to try to reproduce this event on a stock ESF installation.

Simple, straight forward, scientific method.
