  • 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!

    it would be nice to add  IGNORE also as I'm tired of all the characters i only see as legos and all the spamming in the aforementioned style.

    just turning off auto-chat renders me unaware of tribe and ally chat so it's not an option

    Hey, messaged on Twitter but I’m unsure it will ever get seen. The community crunch mentions caves in the lunar biome are supposed to have action taken on them because of a glitch. But this is very unspecific. We have spent the last weeks grinding a building up a cave on the east side of the lunar biome. When we started construction it was not a “mission zone” and if using HLNA showing boundaries there is no boundaries to be seen. Also, there is no mission kiosk anywhere close to the cave. Is this a safe cave to be built in? If not, why did this cave suddenly become a mission zone out of the blue? Are you guys going to give some more specific information before you take action? Again to make a point the crunch says that a patch last week made previous mission zones  Buildable. This cave was not a mission zone to begin with, so is it safe. It will be very disheartening if we and I’m sure many other tribes wasted their past few weeks to lose all the time and effort they put in. 

    This is what I'm wondering aswell. A couple of caves were never mission zones at the start, and have no missions going through them. It would be a shame if people got dev wiped without there being proper explanations for it.
    Afterall, there's a difference between mission zones, zones you do missions in, lunar caves, and what HLNA shows as mission boundaries. So an answer to this question would be appreciated.

    I can't speak for Wildcard, but the global pandemic is an ever changing situation. There is a whole multitude of things that could impact on the games development from staff sickness, forced home working etc etc.

    I'm sure the plan is to continue business as usual as best they can, but whether the pandemic will affect anything is unlikely a question that can be answered with any accuracy until things further unfold.

    Please fix the Whistle and mind wipe bugs, imo these are the most annoying things going on at the mo, however I stopped playing Genesis due to the fact your dead on most teleport before the screen loads or you dc, the teleport in general have always been bad for dc so god only knows why the Devs forced us to do this on the new map? Totally wish I had not purchased it now.

    When did you find out? I see a lot of ppl asking about this. I’m in the cave E Lunar with no missions within 1000m radius. No mission symbols inside,above, around the entire area. Only a glitch inside. Is this the cave you’re talking about? On the CC recently they said mission area caves that were accidentally buildable. The cave I described doesn’t fall into that category but either way I’m confused

    Need to fix the magmasaur lost 2k arb within 10 min in 6man official were built on levis chair and couldnt do anything bc of aimbotting we even have video of proof of them tryng to mesh us aswell lol fixing aimbotting and other easily fixed exploits should be PRIORITY not content. Oh noo the ferox can be tamed by berries everyone lets put all our effort to fix it. Magmasaur shoots 3 times farther than turret range, na thats cool not important but the ferox bug is.... Legit submitted a ticket 2 weeks ago for being meshed on genesis official small tribes with proof and still have no reply and now we have proof of meshing again while they're teaming us and will most certainly not get a response for this ticket im about to waste time on.  Ps who ever thought windows ten would be for the best for xbox players should be slapped js.

    On our server many tribes have claimed under water caves and placed structures in and around them. Non of which are in mission zones, I might add, nor ate they blocking the caves. They have set up small "safe zones" and traps (all unlocked for server use) for taming purposes, the only time they ate ever locked is if the owner tribe is using it. A lot of time and effort has gone into finding locations that are not in mission areas (PvP and PvE), not to mention the time it has taken to build these places up. To just come out and say, "oh we screwed up. Now your bases you have spent hours building, or small satellite collection areas you built are going to be wiped, because of our screw up." Not a bright idea. It is not the players fault you guys messed up your code, just leave it alone. As long as people aren't blocking spawns, spawn points, or blocking entrances to caves that are critical to the completion of a mission. Let it go. That includes blocking with dinos.

    I am built BETWEEN 2 mission areas in the bog. I have a mission area that extends around the back, the front, and off to the sides. This base was built by hand, using stone and metal tools. A lot of time and effort has gone into building this base. There are no gates, nothing is blocked (there is a massive metal spawn behind my base, we made sure not to block access) If it gets wiped because your code was wrong, I will be very unhappy.

    *Just a thought...if bases are going to be wiped, why not use the tool that you guys utilized when redwoods was first rolled out. Use the holographic "build / no build" tape, and give tribes 3 weeks or so find a different location and build up a new base.

    @Cedric Will the Primitive Plus servers get any attention during this period? Beginning with bringing them back online in time for us Prim+ Survivors to take advantage of the 2.5x event.

    I am really disappointed right now. I cant login to the server after the update while others play since they didnt close the game. Almost nobody can join and benefit from the 2,5x event. Why do you let us prim+ players alone every time ? So many people were looking forward to this weekend and now we sit here feeling like 2nd class persons. Please fix that problem and dont let us miss the event.

    If there is a glitch inside then you are obstructing players from getting that glitch and completing that mission.

    But wildcard doesn't balance separately, so if it's a problem in pve then it's a problem in pvp.

    Nobody said we’re trying to obstruct players from getting the glitch. We’re wondering if we can still build in there
