every time I zone, I get the message Congratulations! You have received a new special attack: Backstab!

it only bugs me, when I realize it's something I already have, I see that Congratulations, and get excited then when done reading . . I'm like .. "Oh, um ahh thanks . .for letting me know . . yet again"

I just get it after I zone, it not random. and was just in system chat.
I wasn't paying any attention, but I think it has stopped since latest patch, I didn't recall seeing it last night

I've seen things like this happen in other games, easy fix. usually fixed on next patch after it's discovery

I'm not a coder so I couldn't be one to explain it

It's a golden rule: Add a new thing, 10 old things break. Fix a bug, 50 new ones pop up. Given how the AO code has been described in the past, I think we're lucky it tends to only be minor stuff ;)
