Just a note on the feedback system. It's really bad on consoles since most of us don't have keyboards. Maybe you could have some prefilled options for us. Same for reporting people. I'm not going to type in some long name using a gamepad.

Some solid feedback right there MarkcusD. I will relay this information to the Dev Team.

That's correct. This happened yesterday.

Hey everyone, just wanted to jump in and let you all know this is unintentional and definitely a bug. We deployed a hotfix at 1:00pm ET today to fix this and reverted the pump shotgun values back to what they were before the 1.8 update. If you are looking for more context, check out our forums thread.

Not anymore, but yes it was broken also.

Earlier this week, a highly coveted Legendary Troll Loot Truck Llama appeared in the Save the World store for only a few hours. Our Daily Llamas are generated randomly. Every time we push a new build our process requires the store to be refreshed, which means it left the store 16 hours earlier than usual.

Because of the store reset, many of you reported missing out on the Legendary Troll Loot Truck Llama because of sleep, work or other conflicts. This caused a lot of frustration and we’re sorry.

We hear you and we’re going to put the Legendary Troll Loot Truck Llama in the store this weekend. In addition to the randomly rotating Daily Llama, the Legendary Troll Loot Truck Llama will be available Friday 10/27 @ 8pm EDT to Sunday 10/29 @ 8pm EDT with a purchase limit of two per day.

We are aware of a known issue that causes the Legendary Troll Loot Truck Llama to only drop 500 candy instead of 1500. We will be actively granting 2 Halloween Llamas for each Legendary Troll Loot Truck Llama purchased.

Thanks for all of your feedback on this. Keep it coming!

I know some people are having FPS issues but I'd like to just say my FPS has increased this patch, I can now record my games without any FPS drop at all, I couldn't do this before.

In our analytics performance has improved in aggregate, but there are outliers.

BTW, here is some more context on what we are currently looking into and getting in for 1.8.1 next week.

address GPU spikes seen in Greasy Grove/Pleasant Park

  • amortized shadow map update is now in for 1.8.1 (FORT-58749)

  • turn off shadow casting on spot/point lights in the affected areas for 1.8.1 (FORT-58433)

  • not a regression as far as we can tell

address sync load problems causing hitches

  • added more assets to our async preload list in 1.8.1

  • continuing to investigate other assets that might be missing

  • verifying which parts regressed and how we can change process to catch before ship

continued investigation of reports

  • gathering repro info so we can see if problems are because of the above items, or something separate

  • gathering match info so we can collect server logs and see if that's the culprit

Bad haircut! Thanks for catching this, the art team is jumping on it right away and her ponytail will return in a future update, not too far away.

This event has to be my favourite of the recent ones and this is mostly due to the amount of work put into it and care for the players. I have not be the biggest fan of the dev team during the last two events, especially the most recent one, but this time I feel they have really outdone themselves.

 

My favourite part has to be how generous the rewards are. Disregarding the quest line and side quests, a player can get 1.2 llamas per day by playing normal mission in a unique map. There is no new mechanics that you need to learn; simply jump in and get rewards. The quest line also guarantees one epic hero and weapon and one legendary hero and weapon. The side quests give insane amounts of candy so you will almost be drowning in llamas.

The llamas themselves provide something previous event llamas have not, survivors, as well as the heroes. Getting a legendary survivor is not the easiest task currently but this helps a lot (already got a handful my self). On top of that, if you complete a set, you get extra rewards like the Jack-O-Launcher (highest durability rocket launcher). The heroes are also great in that most are top tier in their class. Getting an epic hero that you could use for a long time to come is now way easier.

 

Finally, you can tell how much the dev team worked on this event by just looking at the assets put into it. The map is completely new with unique assets and buildings. It is more vertical than current maps making for unique approaches to otherwise normal missions. Exploring new locations castles, manors, and catacombs is interesting to me. They put some serious work into this from the quest line and voices to the new map and lobby.

 

I have certainly not been the biggest fan of the dev team but this event has really turned that around. I still have issues with the game but you can not deny the amount of effort put into this event and how rewarding it is. So once again, thank you for creating Fortnitemares, in a single day I have had more fun than the past two events combined.

Thank you so much for playing it! We're super excited to see how many of you are enjoying the event.

I had 75 hp and just got one shot by a shotgun from medium-far range. This happened twice. 70-80 damage from assault rifle range. I don't think this was the case before this update as it never happened before. Is this intentional or a bug?

It's not intended, we're going to push a hotfix as soon as we verify it's properly fixed.
