April 1, 2020

By Mikel Reparaz

DPS glitch, including suspensions for players who exploited it. With Game Designer Bruce Kelly and Community Developer Chris Gansler on board, the stream also took a look at Title Update 8.5, the new Urban Jungle Apparel Event, and balance adjustments the developers are currently working on. A few highlights:

  • Several fixes have been rolled out to address the DPS glitch. Players found exploiting it received a one-week suspension.
  • Title Update 8.5 is scheduled to arrive next week.
  • The new Season 1 target, Venus, is live now, with a double XP event in effect through this week.
  • The Urban Jungle Apparel Event is now live as well, and will continue through April 20.
State of the Game streams on Twitch, Mixer and YouTube. (To find out what was covered in the last episode, make sure to check out the previous State of the Game Recap.


PRIORITY ALERTS

DPS GLITCH SUSPENSION WAVE

  • The team was first made aware of the recent “DPS Glitch” on March 17.
  • The developers deployed several fixes before the glitch was fixed to the point where they had time to look at which users had used it.
  • The team enacted one-week suspensions for players whose individual data showed that they had systematically exploited the glitch.
  • Suspended accounts’ characters will be rolled back to March 17.
TITLE UPDATE 8.5

  • Scheduled to go out next week, but given the current circumstances, the developers are still tentative on the exact date.
  • You can read more about the team’s ongoing efforts on the forums. Update highlights:
  • Control Points will reset when changing Global Difficulty, allowing players to replay them.
  • Fixes for the Striker Gear set stacks not working properly.
  • More balance changes for specific NPCs.
TITLE UPDATE 9

  • Will arrive later in April and we will provide a more concrete date when we are ready.
  • While the developers have a first list of changes, these are tentative, and further changes are still being investigated.
UPDATE ON BALANCING

  • Developers are facing more challenges in updating the game now that they’re working from home.
  • The first pass on NPC balance, health, armor, and damage is done, and the team will continue monitoring feedback.
  • The developers are also looking into specific aspects that can’t be fixed with blanket adjustments.
  • Balance adjustments are in the works for weapons, gear, builds, and exotics. For example, assault rifles and underperforming named items will get a buff.
SEASON 1 – SHADOW TIDE

SEASON 1 UPDATE

  • The next target, Venus, is now available.
  • A double-XP event is in effect this week.
Urban Jungle Apparel Event is live now!

  • Four new outfits.
  • Four weapon skins.
  • 10 loose clothing items.
  • One mask.
  • Players can earn one key for every four SHD levels gained.
  • Keys can also be purchased or gifted to friends.
  • All players get a free key when they log in.
