So I was playing earlier today in battlegrounds as curator, and had this amazing menagerie build, and there was this shudderwock player who had only the tier-1 elemental that gives you another elemental when sold, he was always at the number 1 spot in the game and his avatar was normal (no skull), however when you face him you would get the Kel'thuzad overlay on top of his picture as if though he was dead or had left the game. When I held my touch on his avatar to see his previous two battles, they were both 7-hits by Nozdormu to him, no matter who he faced the last round (including when I battled him). Final battle against rakanishu and I win only to get second place, despite being alive and having 11hp. I don't know if I remember correctly, but I think this is the second time this happened with me, getting second place when I have HP left. However, this time I did take screenshots.
Had similar issue (not ideally similar, but there are some common aspects) - there was a Rakanishu, whom I faced only at the beginning, so I wasn't surprised he had a bad board. Then I haven't battled him for the rest of the game and finally there was only three of us - me, the aforementioned Rakanishu, Patches.
I played against Patches, I lost, but was still pretty much alive. I was expecting to face either Rakanishu or someone dead now - no, I went against Patches for the second time. I was like WTF? so I hovered over Rakanishu and saw that his last two battles included me - that one battle at the very beginning of the game. The dude was dead (either dc'ed or left) for almost entire game.
I wouldn't mind it if it was just a visual bug - but after losing to Patches for the second time (properly, I didn't have hp left), I was third.
Happened to me yesterday, I was with a demon warband, 3rd place, always facing the 2nd place guy with a mech warband until I defeated him, I don't remeber but 3 or 4 matches in a row. When I finally beat him, BG ended awarding me with 2nd place. I never faced the other guy.
same happened to me, i was 2nd, finished battling ghost, was about to fight #1 who was last opponent and i would crush him, i monstrously outscaled him (by like 50 stats on each minion, got lucky with 2 golden kalygoses xD)...and as soon as the last match ended i got the pop up GZ YOU ARE SECOND YAY. I screaned it, cant find it thou
On the other hand I got my Spicy Pretzel Mustard for free! Firstly you cannot join to your game correctly, then it kicks you out and then if you try to join again you get "Unable to reconnect" message only but at the same time both Pretzel Mustards achievements. In history there was only Silas hero (I didn't pick him), no minions at all and 1st place. Cool, isn't it?
You get 300+ to catch up with your old mmr, as soon as you get close to your previous mmr youll get 90+ for wins.
I had the same bug but i think players found the way to exploit KT. Got screenshots on phone, too lazy to post them here, they were actively playing for the whole game (checked their comps every turn, they were different through the game), except they played their first round as normal heroes. After that they turn to KT on every combat mode, while reverting back to normal on shop mode. Still, if you beat whole lobby game just ends without you playing them in the end and you finish second with full point count (90+).
Happened to me today. I was absolutely crashing opponents, I had 2 golden tier 6 Quilboars alongside other T5 & T6 minions. The minions were minimum 60/60 with tanks being 150/150. After defeating the third opponent with 40plus damage, the game ended me taking 2nd place. I mean WTF BLIZZARD!!
