State of the Game: April 19th, 2016

19/04/2016 06:00 PM

Greetings Agents!

We released Update 1.1 a week ago in which we added supply drops, more high-end loot and the first Incursion among other things!

The update has generated a lot of discussions, and it has been an incredible learning experience for us.

For everything we discussed this morning, check out the State of the Game stream!

TODAY

This morning during our weekly scheduled maintenance we made some server tweaks to further improve the online experience for you.

THIS WEEK

Simon has another assignment for you this week, check out his distress signal!

So to recap, for this week’s assignment:

  • Kill 40 Veteran enemies in the Dark Zone
  • Convert 15 green or higher quality materials to a higher quality
  • Kill 40 NPCs with explosions
  • Complete 10 Main Missions on Hard or Challenging difficulty

The reward for completing the weekly assignment is 30 Phoenix Credits!


Hot Topics


We’ll be handling the compensation for the Backpack issue as well as the Deleted characters in the next few days.

Users who have had one of these issues should find:

  • 500 Phoenix Credits
  • 10 High-End Electronics
  • 10 High-End Tools
  • 10 High-End Fabrics
  • 10 High-End Weapon Parts
  • 10 High-End Division Tech

Also as something for the missing dailies over the last days, each player who logs in this weekend will receive 150 Phoenix Credits.

Finally, note that fixing exploits is on top of our priority list. As such, we should be deploying a new fix for Falcon Lost in a few days.

LOOKING FORWARD

While the team is hard at work on all the upcoming content, we’re still sending them all of your suggestions as well!

Some suggestions that we’ve recently passed on are:

  • Commo rose, a list of expressions to help coordinate without voice chat
  • The Extraction list taking too much screen space
  • Lock groups in missions to counteract kicking before the boss
  • Short immunity timer when leaving DZ checkpoints / Safe houses
  • PC Specific: be able to link gear in chat
