This occurs irregulary for me as well. It happened both when I was playing alone (Encounter with Twilight), and when we were 4 players (King of the giants). After finishing the map we disconnected and only got gold and exp(?), but no upgrades.

It also happened multiple times after using the Upgrades given despite losing bug a few times.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This bug seems to occur permanently (not sure whether a server restart fixes it) after winning a map/difficulty a specific amount of times. For example, yesterday I played through Nightmare Shard on each difficulty about 10 times (I used a trainer to speed up this process) and I noticed a few things:

  • The number of times I was able to win the map at a difficulty was the number of upgrades available on this map divided by 4
  • I never dropped any duplicate upgrades
  • When you lose, the crash does not occur. However, it did occur when losing when the Upgrades given despite losing bug was not fixed
  • The crashes happen both with Random, and with Assign (Upgrade distribution)
  • Destroying (Applying and removing) all upgrades dropped from the map/difficulty does not fix the issue
  • Enabling Speedrun does net seem to be affect this (crashes happens with and without speedrun enabled)
  • You do not receive any upgrades or EXP when the crash happens, only gold.

Some other things:

  • When playing with 4 players, we crashed after playing King of the Giants once. When I was playing the same difficulty alone, I was able to finish the map once so far (I haven't tried a second time yet)

It seems indeed to be a problem after playing maps a specific amount of times. I would also like to mention that the bug Speedrun displays wrong difficulty in rankings also seems to have an issue with 4. It adds 4 to the displayed difficulty in the rankings. Not sure how related these bugs are, but there seems to be something with 4.

Same here I just Encounters with Twilight and got nothing only gold, same happened with Introduction as well.

EDIT: After I beat The Insane God and won with Link I went to my Upgrades and I had some random upgrade cards, that I am guessing are from winning the other games and they seem to have been received after I won a game and didn't crash or disconnect.

I played Encounters with Twilight (Standard) 3 times so far and the game crashes every time for me. I did not receive any gold upgrades or EXP.

Edit: did 5 runs of Soultree and got no rewards for the last 2

I just did a run of Soultree and crashed on the first try.
Yesterday I played through all difficulties of Nightmare Shard and started crashing on all difficulties. I asked @Ladadoos to play Nightmare Shard and he crashed despite not having won on that map before when playing alone. However, @Ladadoos said that he was able to properly complete Nightmare Shard and not crash when playing together with @RadicalX.

My theory is that once a difficulty on a map is won a few times with a specific amount of players, the same difficulty will always crash after winning the game with the same specific amount of players, which would make this issue not account related.

 

EDIT: After a server restart a map which has crashed before will not crash anymore. Today (28/02) after the restart I was able to finish Nightmare Shard (Standard) five times before it started crashing again.

Can confirm what was said before. Played Encounters with Twilight (Standard) for the first time after the reset and lost connection after the winning screen.

Edit: Ecnounters with Twilight (Expert) still works after several plays, Crusade (Standard) failed at first try

I played like 5 maps now, all crashed. Seems like some still counting as a win, since I made some gold. 1 Map had a blackscreen at the end ( after clicking ok on the win message ) which took some minutes and finally went to the forge. If I lose, everything is working fine.

I played today the first 2 single-player maps. On the first, an error occoured, but sadly I didn't got it, because my shadowplay wasnt running ._.

At the second, there was only that weird blackscreen, and after that a disconnect.

Both times, I got the Gold but no PvE exp.

Maybe the devs can reproduce the error, with resetting the level tree.. 

EDIT: Tried to play Advanced - worked. Switched back to Standard - again disconnect.. (Everything without using Speedrun)

Also make sure you dont have 'speedrun' enabled, else you will always encounter this bug: https://forum.skylords.eu/index.php?/topic/2901-1-speedrun-disconnects-at-end-of-game/

The black screen + disconnect (this thread) might be related to wrong upgrade reward IDs set on the server (@Bolrader said something about this), since this bug only appears sometimes.

I played Encounters with Twilight the last days a few times.. Here is the whole story :)

 

No Levels unlocked

I Started with Standard. That disconnected me, but I got an Errormessage, sadly my Shadowplay was turned off, so I didn't got this..

Now the second Level (Siege of Hope) got unlocked. I played this one (Standard), and again - disconnect.

Then I've tried to do Encounters with Twilight with several different Difficulties. Advanced - no dc, Expert - no dc, Advanced again - no dc

As soon as I've played another Standard, my Client again got disconnected.

Very weird, so it seems like occasional crashes...

Doesnt seem a pattern exists.

I'm pretty sure that there is a pattern, as I've outlined in my previous posts in this thread.

Here are imo the most important patterns I've noticed:
1. Once a difficulty on a map is won a specific number of times with a specific number of players, the same difficulty will always crash after winning the map with the same number of players.

2. A server restart resets the number of times a map can be won.

3. When you lose the crash does not occur. However, it did occur when losing when the Upgrades given despite losing bug was not fixed, which indicates that this bug might be related to upgrade rewards.

 

Speculation (I'm not even sure if this is worth testing):
If my third point is relevant, and this bug is indeed related to upgrade rewards, then maybe the number of times a map can be won before it starts crashing is related to the number of upgrades dropped on a map instead of the number of participating players.
You should be able to test this by winning a 4 player map with 4 players until it crashes, and then try to win it with 2 or 3 players, and check if it crashes.

@Johnpretty sure your point 1 is invalid as treim crashed encounters before I did. Unless there was a server restart between then and now then it would be valid as i got upgrades and no crash after he crashed with no upgrades 

Yeah, it's not 100% confirmed. I don't know when the server was last restarted, but just to make sure: you both played the map at same difficulty, right?

For me this bug only seems to happen in Encounters with Twilight on standard difficulty, I have played dozens of other maps or Encounter with Twilight on other difficulties in which I never encouter this bug. Only when I play Encounter with Twilight on Standard again, this bug disconnects me after the black screen.

So everybody please keep posting here when you encounter this bug. Please mention the map and difficulty you played on and make sure you didnt have 'Speedrun' enabled (because then you will encounter this bug: https://forum.skylords.eu/index.php?/topic/2901-1-speedrun-disconnects-at-end-of-game/)

Update: Crusade on Standard and on Advanced also disconnected me (after black screen), Crusade on expert worked fine though.
