They completely disabled cloth physics for all skins that use them, because they were causing a game-breaking bug it seems. They are working to fix the bug so that the “loose cloth” physics can be put back in the game. As for the traps, there is a bug that when the are triggered normally they do damage to people that are on the other side of them (if there is a person/people there) which shouldn’t be hit by the trap.

This is correct!

Can you get me a clip of the drum gun still not working? That was an issue that should have been resolved yesterday afternoon due to hotfixes not propagating through a small part of our server fleet we were testing some new tech on.

We're working on a fix for the traps doing collateral damage just on the other side of the wall (although they only trigger facing forward), and the Drift issue is due to us temporarily disabling physics for capes to prevent a crash that's popped up (which should be fixed in the next release).

From what I've seen, the host drops items but not whole stacks and someone else picks them up and then leaves, then the host leaves the game although I'm not entirely sure if there's another step done off screen, apparently someone said that it doesn't work cross-platform.

Investigating. Thank you!

i know people with 2k sunbeam and brightcore..but i only know people duping 6 tier r getting banned.

People that are caught are getting banned yes. If you're actively seeing people duping please dm me especially if they're streaming. Duping should be entirely fixed. If there's another way people are doing it we need to know and how.

Edit: thanks for all the reports. We see we haven't fully fixed it. We're working on a new fix now. I'm sad we had to ban many people but our rules are really clear around cheating. Please feel free to DM me if you see someone actively cheating especially on video or stream. Thanks for all the support.

We know this week has been a rough one for us and the STW community. We're working on fixing as many of the issues that people have pointed out as possible, especially perf and rewards related. You guys have found some really nasty and challenging stuff that we can't always reproduce in our test environment. We're trying to figure that out.

If you have a solid reproduction case for the rewards bug please reach out to u/Magyst. He'll ask to grab logs from you. Please keep your eyes peeled for more information about all this crazy in the coming week. If you don't hear from us right away it's because we're heads down fixing stuff but I promise you will hear from us soon.

Bumping this. Also paging u/mrpopotfs and u/poppinfreshdoze

Thanks for the info, passing this to our devs!

Yea Magyst you should share a hero build that you think is fun. I see you playing as Ranger alot whenever people catch you in a lobby and post it on reddit. Maybe theres some fun combo you have that people dont know about

Right now I'm running Ragnarok / SMS / MGR (For the heal). I need to spend more time testing out a better tact hero. I might go for increased duration on the Shock Tower to see if that helps with surviving in the middle of mobs.

You're a hero underappreciated by people half your age. Those of us old enough to understand how hard your job is and how communicative you are with your community appreciate the hard work and effort of you and the team.

K ILY bye

Thank you so much for the kind words. I definitely appreciate it. Working as hard as I can to help the dev team get these issues resolved <3.

I’ve played three missions since 5.2 was released. The first mission lagged out as soon as I finished building the defenses. Wouldn’t let me rejoin when I got back into the game. So, cool. 1500 mats out the window, a couple dozen traps. Whatever. No big deal.

Second mission, same story except at least I hadn’t spent a bunch of resources this time. Frustrated, I took a few days off to focus on other things and figured I’d come back this weekend to try my luck.

Just ran an excellent Twine Encampments mission with three other focused players. No lag to speak of. Everything was smooth. Finished quickly. Level 4 Chest on the rewards screen. Nothing special, but was looking forward to the Survivor XP and Drops of Rain. Get back to main menu and no rewards granted.

So if we can’t finish missions, and don’t receive rewards when we do manage to finish missions, what exactly is the point of playing the game right now?

I am very patient with game developers in general. I’ve had Epic’s back on all this stuff, and more. They’ve been fantastic about responding to problems for the most part, and compensating the player base when appropriate. I still have their backs and fully expect them to really get these problems behind them. But man, I just can’t play the game while it’s in this state right now. It’s like a punch in the gut every time I’ve loaded into a mission since 5.2.

Going to copy paste this in the threads that I've hit.

I couldn't be any more honored to be working with a community as awesome as this one. When help is requested to help solve issues.. you guys are there with a plethora of information. I appreciate each and every one of you :)

Hey there, can anyone who hasn't gotten rewards from missions reach out to me with your account email, account name, and platform you play on. Please send this information over DMs

We need to look at a couple of things on the backend to determine what is causing this issue.
