Hey Folks,

The last time 50v50 was available we made an adjustment to the storm damage that didn’t make it into this current version. However, we just released a hotfix that enables this change again.

⛈️The storm will now deal 10 damage per tick for all ring phases. This change was made to improve gameplay flow - we noticed that a high number of matches were resolving with a team healing while in the Storm, rather than resolving due to the normal pace of combat.⛈️

One does not simply... eliminate the Dennis.

Neat. What materials did you use for that? (Please no joke about schematic costs)

Oh.. you know.. just a few things.

  • Quartz
  • Twine
  • A power cell
  • a few batteries..

Please help me bring this to Epic's notice. This issue has been raised before by a few people, but never got enough traction for Epic to notice it. Certain alert rewards are bugged and are never delivered to the player.

PS: One of these missions is up live RIGHT NOW. It is the PL 52 Canny Valley Repair the Shelter with the "Epic Hero" reward, you can try it if you want to confirm yourself. Please read the post before doing so. This mission expires in 1 hour from this post, I hope someone can get footage of this bug. (The mission has now expired)

EDIT: Also in Plankerton apparently, there was a mission today that was supposed to give a "Rare Hero".


The missions in context

There are few alert missions that claim to, but do not give the following rewards:

1.Epic Hero (not a specific hero name, just an "Epic Hero" reward)

2.Lead survivor

3.Epic Defender

These are the ones I currently know of.


The Issue

(I want to clarify that I know about the 10 alert/day cooldown and I did have valid alerts, I could see the reward on the map and I got the symbol of the reward along with other rewards in the Alert Rewards chest after the mission.)

After completing the mission, the Alert Reward Chest says you got a hero with the following text:

Epic Hero

Choice between two Epic Heroes.

But there's no choice after that. Fine, you collect the rest of the rewards.

Once you exit the chest menu, nothing happens. No choice of Epic hero is given, it's not in the Loot tab, the Heroes Tab, or the Transforms tab. Came to Reddit and looked it up, turns out the issue has been going on for months now.

Please upvote this post for visibility, a lot of people are spending time and resources on these missions but not getting their rewards. It has been reported before, but I hope Epic notices it this time and gives us our rewards.

(Note: I am linking this post through many posts about the same bug, don't intend to spam. Just trying to get Epic to finally notice this)

Hey everyone! We're currently looking into this to find out what exactly is causing this to happen

Hey everyone! We're aware that this is happening and we are digging into it to get more information.

Crit Rating is converted into a Crit Chance buff, which is then added to the base critical chance of the weapon. This makes the Crit Rating + Crit Damage perk combination best when placed on a weapon with high base crit values.
