On The Horizon
Misc Valguero Issues
There are some misc. issues related to Valguero (wyverns, etc) that will be patched this week. Patch notes with specific details will be updated prior to the patch going live.
Duping and Exploits
The enforcement team is actively taking action on tickets and issues that involve game exploits (duping, meshing, etc). Please refresh yourself on the Code of Conduct for the Official Network to prevent any action being taken against your tribe.
PVE Tribe Warfare System
There has been an increase in abuse and enforcement tickets stemming from the tribe warfare system. To prevent further abuse we will be disabling the Tribe Warfare system on Thursday 8/22.
Preparation is still underway for a new season in Classic PvP. We look forward to sharing more details on what to expect soon!
Mod Program applications will be opening up again on September 1st!
This will be the last application period of the year so make sure to get your projects in.
Apply For Sponsorship
Only fill out the application if you are the owner of the mod. The sponsorship applications are not a nomination system; sponsorship comes with expectations that a given mod author may not want to actually add on to their life at a given point in time for any number of reasons.
It's up to the mod author to decide if they want to put their project up for potential sponsorship.
Survivors on all platforms (including Valguero) will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 23rd of Aug at 1 PM EST until Monday the 26th of Aug 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!
All the best,
