So apparently theres a glitch on PQ Multiplayer, when an appointee gets a gem and the other person goes where that gem use to be located, they somehow get it. Myself and Elilenk EdwardMMOs has gotten this bug on weird occasions whenever we play Multiplayer.

I honestly hope this gets fixed as we don't wanna have this problem continue in future.

Clarifying questions:
- Is this in multiplayer Gem Hunt?
- Does one of you get the gem very shortly after the other collects it?

If the answer to both questions is "yes", you may be experiencing a new feature that mitigates "ping stealing." The second new feature listed in the most recent PQ update says the following:

Added lag mitigations by allowing gems to be collected by all players who touch them within 0.25s of the first player

This is meant to reduce the disadvantage of having high ping.

But isn't that cheating since the player that got the gem and the other person goes to that said spot and gets the gem as well when the first person gets it.

We intentionally added this in the PlatinumQuest 2.3.22 update as a form of mitigation for server lag. If you touch a gem within 0.25s of the first player who touches it, then you get the gem too. We're open to feedback on it though.

To me it honestly feels like cheating since the person who already got the gem and the other person within 0.25s of the first gets it as well. It feels unfair in my opinion.

PQ works by the ideology "it's not a bug, it's a feature".

Well it feels like cheating to me, but I'll accept the reality and move on
