Was it during your turn? You can save & quit only during your turn.

Yah I figured it out....just was getting freaking frustrated cause I had a whole match of nothing but 1's rolled against retarded halfings of all things. This game can be a bit to harsh at times. The reason I was trying to save cause the game froze on the other times reply to a roll but it still had the voice going on and I could use the ESC menu but wouldn't let me save to reboot the game. So means I had to start the fight all over. Did this twice and both times the match got worse than the time before on the RNG rolls

Do you still have a replay of it, by any chance?

Vampires Bite a Thrall function is still far from polished. I know you are aware of the bug, please do not forget. In BB1 Vamps were buggy as Hell, I hope they won't be forever Buggy doomed in BB2.... Thk You.

No patch for PS4 this week then? 😞
