Dev Tracker — Reddit

Hey there!

Thanks for the video. It seems this stems primarily from a fix that was applied to prevent "ghost peeking" that happened earlier this season. Fallout from that solution caused some camera issues while aiming down sights. We then fixed those camera issues shortly after but some remaining Outfits were still affected by loss of vision while in ADS mode. I've gone ahead and made a Trello card. I wanted to drop in and let you know we are aware of this issue and are working towards a fix for all remaining Outfits affected by this.

Well I guess the storm destroying structures didn’t work out....

Yes and no - we're looking at ways to shake up late game circles and got a lot of great data from the feature. We'll be evaluating what worked (and what didn't) and may bring parts of it back in the future.

Upgrade your Fort in patch v5.41! This update is dropping in tomorrow, September 18 with downtime beginning at 4 AM ET (0800 GMT).

Okay.

Account disputes are not at all my department, but I'd be happy to forward you to the right people if you message me your info.

Hey everyone,

 

The issues surrounding voice chat should now be resolved. Please provide the following if you are experiencing new voice chat issues since the fix (static, voices distortion, etc):

 

  • List all players and their platforms (including yourself)
  • Do all players or a single player sound robotic, choppy, or stuttering?
  • list any players who are speaking in robotic/choppy voices (or everybody if the entire channel)

 

Thank you!

So you remember the .01-.99 sensitivity only having ten sensitivity options? I thought they changed it so it was consistent with targeting and scoped, which both have 98 options.

That's pretty much it though, we both have seen it in different ways and now we need our God EPIC to come tell us the truth ;D /u/AaronAtEpic pls save us!

Thanks for adding me to this.

The sensitivity change is indeed intentional. We are planning on going back to the smaller increments though very soon.

On the subject of the aim assist, I was directly involved in that and we could not reproduce it. So what we ended up doing was talking with those users offline and eventually had to hard reset their settings. If this is still an issue please report it to our customer service and we may be able to fix it for you. We honestly didn't think this was wide spread and that we had dealt with the handful that had the issue.

After the hurricane I'll have a discussion with really smart people on what we can do here to get everyone back to a reset aim assist setting.

It has been 4+ months since the last post on this so please DO NOT REMOVE, THIS NEEDS ATTENTION.

As the title suggests, the need to be able to select a piece without placing it to pre edit it is really no longer needed.

I can understand for rotating the piece sure but if all I had to do was place 1 piece down before I could rotate it. I would take that over this 2 click ( or click and hold WITH delay) shit ALL day. Kinda frustrating I have to slow down my gameplay because the game can't keep up with what I want to do.

So many times I have needed to pull out and place a floor above me quickly while being pressured, but since it has a delay it makes it useless trying to heal in between an enemy shooting out floors/pyramid's trying to get in.

Add a toggle so that the people who like the current system can keep as is. But allow those of us using controller, a way to push above the current building speed, and get that skill gap ceiling pushed just that touch higher. The delay makes it feel super clunky.

There's many videos of people explaining exactly what I'm talking about and what's wrong with it on youtube, that have a few 100k views if you need a visual of what I'm talking about.

We totally agree. We're going to change this to switch to the intended piece but also try to place it at the same time. If there is outcry from other users then we'll have to temporarily turn it off and create an option for it but we're hoping that won't be necessary.

This change will be in a patch after 5.41.

It's amazing how far this subreddit and this game have come. Wow.

Obligatory thanks to all the mods for everything they've done over the last year, and special shoutouts to /u/dream_paragon who originally reserved this subreddit and willingly turned it over when we decided to swap names, /u/MCiLuZiioNz for putting together the CSS framework on literally hours notice, and /u/BurlsteinBurl, /u/FinallyRage, and /u/Amerikoni for jumping on day 1 to get this thing rolling.

Brief personal sidenote, this post just hit me hard because a year ago I was setting this place up during the lunch break of my 9-5 office job, and now I've got the coolest gig in the universe.

Can you tell us what “faster edit” means? Is it going to be a one button click?

We've been hard at work trying to finalize custom...

Did I miss something? The comment said 4 days ago and the patch just released today.

Let me apologize for the misunderstanding then. We work on a slightly different release schedule than what is seen as the next patch to the public. I should have been more specific in my wording since the patch you received today was already in the process of being certified, which means no new changes were being made at that time. The change will be in the patch after this one that you just received.

We haven't patched since I mentioned the change.

Should have been in the patch notes from the beginning, for transparencies sake.

You're correct. This was our mistake and it has since been added.

Hey folks,

You may have noticed we've disabled the Video Capture feature on Nintendo Switch as of the v5.40.2 client update. This was done for performance and stability reasons as we've been seeing a high rate of Out of Memory related crashes. Disabling this feature saves a significant amount of RAM while also having a positive effect on overall performance across the board.

We've since added a line about this in the Patch Notes and we're considering the possibility of making this feature optional in the future for players who don't mind taking a hit on their performance.

Hey there!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This latest patch should have fixed all of the issues shown above. Let us know if you run into any other visual or translation issues with in-game text. Thanks!

But you guys yourself said you were looking into at least North African servers.

I would assume you would only say that if you guys saw the numbers were clearly enough right?

I mean, i would say that most likely at least 90% of all the users who have over 170ms right now, are all close enough to Africa, that an African Server would 100% lower their latency and provide a better experience.

Its just extremely frustrating. Having shots simply not register is the most un-fun thing you can have in a video game, i would prefer having to lead my shot, the way BF handles high latency.

We're looking into lots of potential regions. I don't want to exclude anything in the future, I only want to set expectations that we won't be able to set up a subregion everywhere we'd like to right now.

Multiple cloud providers have South Africa servers, not trying to be rude, but this a pure excuse.

This thread, is literally filled with people asking for an African/South African server, and you guys just ignore it.

You will more than happy take our money from out South African Credit Cards though lol.

Azure has cloud computing in SA.

There is countless games/services in SA now, there is no excuse. Valve,EA,Microsoft all have SA based servers, hell even Discord has South African servers now.

Not all server hardware is created equal, we require very significant capacity of very specific instance types. Those are much harder to find than servers running VOIP or other games.

In addition, not all potential subregions will be healthy enough from a matchmaking perspective to be split off.

Hey there!

Sometimes it takes a bit of time for all servers to grab the hotfix immediately after it's released. The Drum Gun will end up being vaulted for all game modes though.
