    Community Crunch 215: Anti-Mesh System Enhancements, and EVO Event

    Anti-Mesh System Enhancements

    large.598e538d96ba6_FataL1ty-Patrol-8x.j

    Last week we deployed upgrades to the anti-mesh system that significantly reduced the amount of meshing that is occurring on the Official Network. It’s been instrumental in creating a fair playing experience and decreasing the amount of meshing, as we are seeing an overall 90% reduction. We truly believe, with your help, we’ll be able to move the needle to 99%!

    The first iteration of the anti-mesh system only included detection which enabled us to collect critical data needed to upgrade the system to take action on those who were identified to be meshing. The wide-scale deployment of the second iteration last week allowed us to reduce the edge cases and false-positives that resulted from upgrading the system to take action. We’re now introducing an upgrade to the action-taking capabilities of the anti-mesh system that is much more aggressive than the prior version we introduced last week. Instances in which you may have been teleported before will be less forgiving now. This upgrade has been tested on multiple maps and across a large number of servers.  After fixing the few edge cases that resulted from the upgrade, we are now confident in widening the scope of servers to ensure the system is ready for the larger network.

    It is possible that you may find yourself in situations where the system has not accounted for and we're asking for your assistance in reporting them. Your tribe log will contain important information about any actions taken by the anti-mesh system. That information is useful in determining if it was a legitimate action and will be utilized to make further improvements to the detection logic.  We've created a thread for you to file your reports:

    We will be vigilant in reviewing your feedback and responding to cases in which the anti-mesh system acts incorrectly. With your help and cooperation we believe we can eliminate meshing, an exploit that ruins the gaming experiences for many survivors across Official and Unofficial Networks.

    I think your a little confused bud this is about reporting flase positives. Im reporting mine and your not yelling at everyone your actually focused on me right now for some reason. I understand you need to feel defense but you are digging a depper hole. I am foing what I am supposed to hear and trying to leave a report on all the stuff I have lost and you just want to defend them so badly even if there is a current bug making the game nearly unplayable in certain areas so I hope you would understand in order to fix it and the point of this thread is to report it. Don't want to see people reports and opinions? Then play minecraft or hop on out of here but stop quoting me bud I'm tired of explaining a point that goes right over your head. Good luck qnd hopefully you understand how feedback works now take mine and stop wasting both of our time and others with this nonsen

    This will be the last time I quote you since it's what you request. I know that reporting bugs is what this is for, and I happily encourage people to point out what's wrong and voice your opinions. I'm just pointing out the hippocracy that is occuring elsewhere. I love this game and all the problems it has, yes work needs to be done and there is room for improvement. I'm just saying to those who are always complaining (not you) to appreciate what you got and how hard they are working. I'm just tired of people never being happy with what they have and what is to come

    Playing on server 649 Aberration. Lost all my gear on a new spino. Including 3 new rock drake eggs, lowest was a 145, 3 sets of haz suits and two crypods, one of which had a ravager that was a 145 tame. Tough to see happen after having not played in a while and making a trade for the egg of that spino. Tribe is located at approx 42, 33. Behind waterfall up top. First time in the radiation for egg hunting.
