Burning Status Effects for 49000 Days!

Last year when the Whitestrake events was running I did notice the exact same thing.... Having this Burning effect running for like 49000+ days is pretty annoying!
Don't say it is a feature or some useless thing that is supposed to be like this.

You can't do jack with this one on, no mount because you're in battle, only way to clear is thru a Delve enter/exit or Cyrodiil exit.

Anyone know what could be causing this, and please no... let'st it not be the way it's working

The picture on the wall is chaotic.
I don't want to look at it, but when I do,
I cannot speak because of the confusion in my head!

    Yep, have seen that and other effects that get messed up in Cryodiil .. you have to leave and come back to clear it .. if you go into that red glowing circle at the home base where you learn to use the hammer .. you won't leave Cryodiil and have to re-queue ..

    49,710 is a 64 bit integer stack overflow. They have known about it for years.

    Its a PVP problem, its not high priority :D:D:D:D but aye, its annoying, even when you get 2x burning, 1x Streak fatigue, 1x posion and 1x vulnerability

    AT least let me have a cold fire burning effect I can have on me 24/7, I want to burn blue flames

    You already know the answer to that.

    My guess is that they don’t actually know how to fix it. It’s such an obvious bug that reflects poorly on the coding, so one would assume they would fix it if they could.

    They watched a whole lotta PVPrs BURN !

    If I was at home I'd post a pic from a few MYMs back, I had Standard chains debuff, burning & some other debuff I can't remember all at the same time for 4years. I'm pretty sure it's just a UI error & the debuffs aren't actually active. It made my character look pretty cool though... running around wrapped in burning chains :D

    I've had a cold fire glitch on my character before, I burned with blue flames for hours! It actually got a little annoying after a while, though, cuz I could hear the flames flickering the whole time, lol.

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic.

    Thank you for your understanding

    It depends on the debuff, as some actually do affect you until you zone. And there's no consistency, as sometimes you can see the status effects actually working against you, and other times they seem to be just a text UI error.

    I think it's odd that they're using a 64 bit integer to track/control status effect durations. It's overkill.
