In celebration of our first post Parity weekend, even though not all the dust has settled yet, we are having a Double XP / Double GP weekend across both PC and PS4. This is already in effect on the servers, so enjoy. You will not see any icon notification in game for this as it is a server side mode, but it will stack with boosters so if you have those in effect, go you.
We just permanently dropped the GP perm prices on (practically) all attachments. Literally just cut them in half, again on both PC and PS4.
The only ones not touched right now are the IR and ammo counter scopes.
One last thing, since everyone keeps asking what the Drought skin looks like, here ya go.
See you during the live stream!
Last week saw us busy with finalizing the work on the servers and subsystems, getting them up and running, and releasing the new client out to the community via Arc and Steam. This week we will be working on bringing up the east servers as well as fixing player inventory issues. Unique items such as missing Troll Face emote, Beta helmet/trophy/emblem, Daylight and Zombie Girl tags, and missing titles we be addressed in time. Don’t worry, we will get to all of them in time and get everything sorted out. In specific to the Beta items, we plan on removing it from all accounts, then award it back to accounts that had them in their inventories when the old inventory database was turned off.
In regards to Drought items that we awarded players. The Drought awards were based on three tier levels for which each player was scored during the upgrade process. Basically if you had an item that was not able to be upgraded, either due to bad data or no longer existing, you received a mark per item. At the end they were added up and you were placed in the proper tier. Here is the breakdown of those awards by tiers based on the 3.2 million player accounts across both US and EU.
TIER 1 – 100% of players received the following
* Emblem – Drought Survivor
* Title – Survivor of the Drought
TIER 2 – 10% of the players received
* Helmet – Helm of the Drought
* Plus all Tier 1 awards
TIER 3 – 5% of the players received
* Weapon Skin – The Droughtbreaker
* Plus all Tier 1 and 2 awards
If you have any specific issues that have not been addressed yet, please get in touch with us through our support page.
Thank you for your patience and support while we finish up the Parity process.
Pardon our dust! Servers will be down as we work to upgrade player data and the game servers to the very last version of BLR on PC. It’s going to be a lengthy process. Once we’ve dug in and have more info we will release details on ETA
