  • Community Crunch 220: On The Horizon and EVO Event

    Community Crunch 202

    untitled-11.jpg

    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

    Mindwipes

    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 that are 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!

    why have time for wave ray been decreased?. pryor to the ps4 update you could Finnish alpha with 10 seconds remaining now you cant get past checkpoint 20 because of how little  time you have. alpha and beta are impossible.

    Please fix bluescreening on ps4 especially regular ps4s), constant loading jittery fps (and that's on a ps4 pro), settings being reset every time you play (including server searching) and add a server setting for more pressure plates in an area (PvE), was really looking forward to making a smart home, can't do that when I need 2 plates just for 1 door! lol. Oh and the disappearing tamed feroxes.

    You should send a dev to 1144 volcano ne. Teleport zone is trapped and it is going to lag anyone trying to head into the area causing a blue screen

    Please tell me the big lunar cave isn’t getting changed to non-buildable, sooo many people have bases in that spot and it’s been buildable since launch you can’t just change it at least not for pvp

    SERIOUSLY!! Where else are you supposed to build if you want to be in lunar?? Don’t give us something then take it back.

    This is the exact spot. That’s the reason we chose the spot. The Community Crunch made it seem like it’s only the caves that were unbuildable, but who knows? Just want some clarification. We don’t want to tear down just to find out we’re safe. And we would want a time table to do so if we do have to take it down.

    The cooldown timer is not fixed. My mindwipes are still stuck on -8 sec cooldown.

    Espero y dejen construir en las cuevas, muchos jugadores nos hemos esforzado para hacer bases alli y solo por unos cuantos van a quitarlas? Al momento que inicio el juego no decia nada de no construir alli. Arreglen el juego tambien ya ni piedo jugar, veo todo en pausas parece que veo una pelicula en camara lenta.

    It's honestly not fair to the people that found the caves and we were able to build in them without a restriction, i believe that you should just remove the mission. They should allow the people that were already built to stay, because we all worked hard and most have a fat amount of things already built and you want us to just pack up and restart. When we first scouted the cave it wasn't even a mission zone and now it is. im sure everyone thats also built here understands that this isnt fair and the amount of work we put in shouldn't be taken away.

    The teleport in the Bog to go NORTH does not work properly. It takes you somewhere completely different like the NORTH EAST or NORTH WEST...all other ones work normally with HLN-A but the NORTH teleport is broken. is there a fix coming for this soon? its been about 5 days like this Wild Card

    Agreed no one in my tribe wants to grind now and add to the base cause it may get demoed, now they all said if it does they are quitting gen

    Hello Survivor,

    Thank you for contacting Studio Wildcard Customer Support. I am GM Fury and I’ll be addressing your issue today. The development team knows about this issue, and they are working diligently to hopefully resolve this issue for you. Unfortunately, since I am only customer service and not on the development team, I do not know when this could be possibly fixed. I would suggest that you keep your eyes on the upcoming patch notes and the forums to see when this may be fixed! I will be providing you a link that you might find helpful below. I would like to thank you again for taking the time to reach out to us and for being such an active member in the community. It is great to have so many Survivors that are willing to assist us. I am here for any other questions or concerns that you may have for me at this time. Take care, and I am looking forward to hearing back from you in the near future!

    This is great but i have yet to see anything about lost tek engrams. I have talked to many people on the servers where i play and they have been hit with this also. I also have had a ticket in for 2 weeks with not a single reply. Some kind of acknowledgement of this would greatly be appreciated.
