I've been having issue like this a lot. Any suggestions?

I've been getting problems like the following: Bummer! Expected " Warrior, axe, 40" and got "Warrior, axe, 40".

Or i will paste by code out side of the coding exercise and I get the correct results but when inside the environment I get errors.

from character import Character
class Warrior(Character):
    weapon = "sword"

    def rage(self):
        self.attack_limit = 20

    def __str__(self):
        return "Warrior, {} , {}".format(self.weapon, self.attack_limit)

Hi there! Challenges can be and very often are very picky. And you've just run into a prime example of this. Your logic is fine. Your code is fine. But the format of your string has an extra space. Seriously, that's the entire problem.

Many times the solution is in the Bummer message, but you have to look closely. Take another look:

Bummer! Expected "Warrior, axe, 40", got "Warrior, axe , 40".

See the extra space between "axe" and the following comma? There's your problem.

So this is the line you need:

return "Warrior, {}, {}".format(self.weapon, self.attack_limit)

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thank you Jennifer. I too have noticed how the coding challenges are picky. Going forward I will keep these things in mind.
