Zombies keep disappearing (no, not turning invisible)

Basic Info:

Platform: Xbox Series S
Issue Type: Gameplay
Game Mode: Online Official
Server Type: PvP
Map: Exiled Lands
Server Name: 2808


Bug Description:

Zombie thealls keep randomly getting deleted. The first time it was during server reset; I logged back in and one had simply been deleted (and the other two were half buried in the floor, for some reason). The next time one vanished it happened in the same location, but while I was just mucking around and building. One minute all three were there, next thing I know one is gone. And I don’t mean invisible. One was already invisible; I’m used to that. What I mean is that it vanished and was deleted from my list of thralls. Just gone, suddenly, for no reason. Then again later it happened a third time while all three were just standing still and guarding in my base.


Bug Reproduction:

I have no idea… My best guess is that it was something to do with the teleporters (sorcery). It started happening after I activated the first teleporter, and all three times it happened they were standing near an active teleporter. But that could just be a coincidence. But it never happened before, and now three thealls have randomly been deleted within a day.

How long did you have them for? Zombies expire intentionally by design after a few days. They are not permanent followers.

Which was such a downer when I discovered that.

No, this isn’t them “dying of old age” after a few days. If gives you a death message when that happens. There’s no message for these dying, they simply vanish and cease to exist.
And to answer your question, they were all fairly new, as low as 20 minutes old.
