Quick Announcement: Hotfixes

TeeceezyTeeceezy Staff Posts: 3,576
Hi all,

We'll be making some fixes to the game in the next few hours. These will include fixes and improvements to matchmaking in Outposts and social features such as guilds, challenge stars and guild chat.

Players won't be affected by this, but we just wanted to let you know as a lot of you have been asking about our schedule with regards to fixes. In addition, the 1.7.1 patch will be out some time this week.

Cheers.
Alibaba

    @blackiguana With regards to rollbacks, we found a broken level that was causing this for players. This level is now fixed. If you've lost purchases or other purchases, please contact support with #twdsupport in your message and they'll help you out.

    @Xiao 1.7.1 will be purely a fix update. It will include:

    • Automatic reload now in case of disconnect (no more "Something went wrong.")
    • Localization loading errors fixed
    • "Feature Preview" text has been removed from walker upgrade screen
    • Canceling gas purchase in Outpost will no longer crash the game

    Amongst other minor fixes.

    thanks @Teeceezy .

    Is there any update on challenge schedule ? Now with higher level survivors challenges can be taken a little bit further than previously, which doesn't leave much time for anything else, especially not the shiney new outpost features!

    Im hoping we can move back to a one challenge per week situation (even if only 4 days) and leaving rest for outpost raids and anything else?

    Or are you planning on a relentless 2nd challenge today ?

    Relentless challenges is the one thing that will push me from this game, especially with the exorbitant amount xp needed for upgrades now on equipment compared to low level rewards on farming and from farms and tents!

    They want you to use Gold, but even whales get tired of this shortage of resources.

    You could hotfix gear resell value to 50% of XP spent and increase farm and tent production. It's easy for you to change and the game will be more enjoyable in the long run.

    @Teeceezy Will we be informed in-game when this hot fix is implemented? New challenge starts in 45 minutes, will challenge stars be calculated correctly?

    How is this fixed if i just got rolled back to progress from Saturday night. Lost day and a half... over 70 stars, 500k xp, upgrades etc.
    Heard other people reporting the same just now. Not a rant but just suggestion. Maybe its time to shut the game down for a day or 2 and get it fixed? Will surely do less damage to community than getting people all over losing their progress....

    @drinky +1. Two challenges a week and outposts (and my second game) is a bit much.

    Sure does seem like it! Everything is just so far out of reach its like that's the only way to catch up. I know I need a NML support group like ... Hi, my name is Lynn and I'm addicted to NML and have spent my bill money on AIR!!

    Arg!!! I was also just now rolled back by about a day, losing hours and hours of game time advancement - @Teeceezy will you only reimburse purchases or also lost XP, upgrades, food, gold etc? - please tell me that you will be able to roll us back to the present -- I will be hesitant to invest so much playing time if it can be wiped out without any compensation.
    I'm lost.

    Check out the DMZ guild. We're recruiting. Here.

    So, is it really fixed now? I've had another rollback too, after you said it was fixed.

    @Teeceezy is Next Games going to reimburse players like me that lost crates or the gold coin things from Raids that failed? Meaning I tried to raid someone and the game kicked me off and rebooted itself. And when I checked my log it said the raid failed and the game took stuff from me for no reason. I didn't lose the raid, the raid failed cuz it rebooted. Plz get back to me.

    Wow I am truly sadden by reading this. It looks like he gave a 6 hour warning and yet some people stil aren't happy. I guess they should have called all players and told them.

    Next someone wants the influence points back from being booted during a raid? You've got to be kidding right? Influence is so easy to regain and you don't lose that much during a boot. I've been booted three times during raids and two of them resulted in NO Loss (spelling error edit) NO gain of influence. I don't think you can lose TG from a failed offensive raid, you just didn't get any.

    THANKS NG keep doing your thing, haters gonna hate no matter what you do.

    And defenders gonna defend no matter what.

    Some people are just happy getting a new car I guess. Even if things aren't quite ready in the car, like brakes, air bags, tires, gas tanks, electronics, sensors, emissions systems ......................................

    Brakes that don't work in a new car and problems with a free app to me are not even close. A much more expensive purchase with a flaw that could be deadly is not the same as a game with flaws. Maybe some people are using their iPad as a brake disc but I haven't heard anyone doing that.

    I don't want to derail this or get toxic but things come out with bugs flaws problems all the time. Cars have recalls and some of those recalls are very serious in nature. Look at the airbag recalls, seat belt recalls, brake recalls and although not a car company the Firestone tire recall. Windows (the program not glass) comes out with flaws and the send patches and updates out during the night on just about every version. Madden football I'm pretty sure has flaws every year that they send updates out to and it's what $60 when it comes out each year.

    And some people are never happy and live in a world of perpetual anger and everything around them.
