Community Crunch 202

Community Crunch 202

Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

We’ve got a short one this week. We’re all busy working on new and exciting content for upcoming months. We are remaining focused on the health of the Official Network and collecting bug reports and feedback from various social media platforms.

You should expect to see a continued focus on existing bugs and polish as we round into the summer months!

On The Horizon

Enforcement Updates
Mission Areas
Last week we encountered a bug that rendered some caves build-able. If you have structures within a mission zone (cave) on the Genesis map, you should remove them. The Enforcement Team will take the appropriate actions to remove them otherwise.

Teleport Zones
Teleport zones are treated as spawn zones and should not be blocked or have turrets in them on PvP or PvE

Recently we deployed a patch with a fix to the cooldown timer on mindwipes. We are aware that this didn’t resolve all the existing issues that players are currently seeing. We are actively working on a fix for the remaining issues.

Player Dedicated Servers
We hoped to have player dedicated servers up and running but we’ve hit a roadblock that will delay us from being able to deliver the feature as we had previously hoped. We will keep you updated on the progress we are making!

Voice Chat
We’re excited to introduce new chat modes (whisper and yell) for those that found the previous chat functionality lacking. We expect to have this feature deployed to PC in the near future!

EVO Events
We’ve enhanced our tuning system that’s responsible for rates, like harvesting and taming, to be more accommodating for the various game modes and play styles we have available. This will allow us to do specialized rates for those who didn’t normally receive them. We’re putting the final pieces in place and we’ll let you know when the system is live and ready to go. We’ll do a detailed post outlining how you should expect EVO events to work in the future.

EVO Event

Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 20th of Mar at 1 PM EST until Monday the 23rd of Mar at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

2x Harvesting Rates
2x Taming Rates
2x EXP Rates
Until next time!
