Outriders confirms the next patch and wants to deliver lots of fixes

Published

'Outriders' will allow you to recover the equipment lost due to a bug with equal or better statistics

Outriders probably fixed the annoying inventory bug with the last patch 1.06. But there are numerous other problems. Some of these should be fixed in a next update. MeinMMO summarizes for you what we know about it so far.

What is the situation like in Outriders? Last week the inventory bug caused a stir. This error could result in players losing all of their equipment. Update 1.06, which was released on April 15th , seems to have fixed the problem.

Now there are still numerous minor and major problems that the co-op shooter has to struggle with. Apparently, another patch is already being worked on. The community manager confirmed this in the Outriders subreddit.

Here we will show you what could be tackled with the upcoming patch and what about the restoration of items that were lost due to the inventory bug.

The next patch should fix bugged assassin skills and many other problems

What do we know about the next update? Unfortunately, there is a lack of specific information on this. So far it has only been confirmed via Reddit that a “larger” follow-up patch is in the works. This has been confirmed by the community manager thearcan (via. Reddit ).

It can certainly be said that a bugged skill of the assassin should be repaired in the next update. This is the hunting fever skill. It actually teleports you behind enemies but doesn’t seem to work correctly for some players.

Further fixes have not yet been specifically mentioned. According to the arcane, however, the developers are in the process of bundling numerous fixes in the patch, which initially fell by the wayside because of the work on the inventory bug. Here is what the community manager said:

“We are bundling fixes with lower priority into a larger follow-up patch, while the previous patches focused on the more serious problems.

If we had released the fixes with lower priority in the other patches, this would have significantly increased the time required for testing and they would not have been released yet.

What else could be in the patch? There are numerous issues here that the patch could address. Some of these are summarized in the developers’ official Reddit post.

  • Console players are still struggling with the login screen, and many of them are sometimes unable to log into the game at all.
  • The developers recommend switching off the console completely and clearing the cache memory
  • One player reports that a connection test helped on PS5 as soon as one gets stuck on the login screen. A complete disconnection apparently also helped with others (via Reddit ).
  • Quest markers often don’t show you the correct way to your destination
  • Hit registration is incorrect, especially in co-op
  • General, numerous server and stability problems
  • Opponent balancing, especially in the endgame

There is definitely enough to do for People Can Fly and it remains to be seen what will be tackled next. Before that, the items for the players who are affected by the inventory bug are also to be restored.

More information on the recovery will be available early next week

This is the current status: There was initially some confusion around patch 1.06. Many players were disappointed when they still found an empty inventory or couldn’t load their characters after downloading.

The patch should only fix the bug itself and not restore any items, as the developers also wrote in the patch notes. The solution to the inventory problem is still being worked on. People Can Fly promise to provide more specific information at the beginning of next week.

The fix that was implemented with patch 1.06 seems to be at least successful. The developer is keeping an eye on the situation.

When can a recovery be expected? Even if there is no specific information about it, People Can Fly has already narrowed it down. The developer wrote to a concerned fan on Twitter: “Don’t worry – the process won’t take a month. We just haven’t released the details yet because our teams are working to improve, optimize and test our solution. ” (via Twitter )

How will the recovery work? This is what the developers have revealed so far:

  • The recovery will happen on a specific day and it will be a great, one-off event.
  • Probably only the most valuable items will be restored, i.e. epic (purple) and legendary equipment.
  • Rare (blue) equipment is unlikely to be restored
  • The restoration will add the items to your inventory.
  • It is possible that the restored items will not have exactly the same status values ​​as your old items

What about the compensation? To make amends, People Can Fly has announced a legendary weapon for all players who have played from April 1st to April 11th since its release.

This compensation is still planned, but will not be delivered until the players’ items have been restored (via Twitter ).

Lst Ark: Servers are shutting down today to allow more fans to play

Published

Lost Ark: Tier 1 Island Route

On February 11th the new MMORPG Lost Ark was released in its Free2Play version for all people who just want to try it. That’s a lot though, which is why the game is still struggling with server issues. That should change now.

Update 8:05 a.m.: The servers are now down.

When will the servers shut down? As announced by Amazon via the Lost Ark official website, the servers will go offline this morning, that is, on February 13, at 8 a.m. GMT.

The downtime affects all European servers equally and you will not be able to log into the game in the meantime.

How long will they stay offline? The maintenance work is planned for about 3 hours. So if all goes well, you’ll be able to return to the world of Arkesia at 11 a.m.

We’ll keep you up to date in the live ticker when the servers return and if there will be any delays again.

Lost Ark’s last scheduled server maintenance was scheduled for 4 hours, but ended up lasting over 10 hours, leading to some negative reviews on Steam.

Why are the servers going down? Since Lost Ark was released, the new MMORPG has been struggling with long queues and server problems. At the prime time on February 12, more than 1.3 million people played the action game at the same time.

This also meant that some servers had to be completely closed to new players. Especially the server Asta, on which many German players gather, is affected by long queues.

Sometimes the fans have to wait up to 6 hours just to log in. Incidentally, this only works if you already have a character on the Asta server. New players were completely denied access until the evening hours of February 12th.

To address this situation, Amazon is working with Smilegate to increase server capacity. At this point, however, they are not telling us exactly how this is supposed to work.

Are the queues gone then? No, probably not. In the blog post, the publishers emphasize that they only want to create the basic framework for further updates and more server capacities during the downtime.

We, therefore, do not assume that you will be able to continue gambling directly at 11 a.m. without queues, even if that would be desirable.

Lost Ark: An exact time when the servers will go online

Published

Lost Ark: Tier 2 Island Route

Today at 6 p.m. the Lost Ark servers should (re)open to all players after the scheduled maintenance. But nothing will come of the official Lost Ark Launch! The launch is delayed due to “deployment issues”.

An exact time when the servers will go online again has not yet been announced. “We hope that this problem will be fixed in a few hours,” the announcement simply says.

We’ll keep you posted on updates here!

Unfortunately, the launch has been delayed due to deployment issues. We hope this will be fixed in a few hours.

Your patience is appreciated and we will update you soon.

Restart Lost Ark Client

We have received important information from the Community Team. Waiting in the server screen doesn’t seem to help. The server list does not appear there automatically. So a reboot is required.

Waiting at the server screen won’t help, as it will require a fresh launch of the client as far as I’m aware.

You can read our guide for Lost Ark here.

New pioneer package with server change in Lost Ark

Published

Lost Ark guide: List of runes and their effects

Lost Ark has been better received than many thought. Even Amazon did not expect this rush. And so there were long queues on some servers, as was the case with New World. Since a real server change is not possible, many players simply created a new character on a new server. However, some of these players have already redeemed their pioneer package on the first server and thus used it up unnecessarily.

As Amazon has now announced, we will get an additional set of exclusive items on the new server. These items are bound to the character and thus cannot be traded. They can soon be redeemed on every new server.

During the Head Start period for Lost Ark, a massive number of heroes arrived in Arkesia. While we are thrilled to have so many players joining us, we also recognize that this has brought about large queues on our more popular servers, leading to a less than ideal experience for these players.

In an effort to improve the player experience for those who have faced queues, we will be taking several steps to put preventative measures in place ahead of our full launch tomorrow morning, in addition to addressing some of the outstanding issues surrounding Founder’s Pack claims.

Founder’s Pack Redemptions

Players have let us know one of the reasons they are reluctant to switch to lower population servers is because many of them have already redeemed their Founder’s Packs on another server. To help combat this and make exploring new servers a more reasonable choice, we will be granting ALL Founder’s Pack purchasers that redeem their pack by 12 PM PT (8 PM UTC) on Monday, February 14th with an extra set of the exclusive items from the Founder’s Pack they redeemed (e.g., the Founder’s Exclusive Pet and Founder’s Title from the Bronze pack; see full list below) as well as some additional Royal Crystals for Silver, Gold, and Platinum Pack purchasers. These items will not be tradeable, and will be delivered to a player’s Product Inventory so they can be claimed on a new server. Your original Founder’s Pack will not be affected by this, and will remain on the initial server where you redeemed it (or in your Product Inventory, if you have not yet redeemed it).

We are currently working to get these item grants ready to go, and will update players when they are ready to claim — these will be claimable on any new server you choose, so in the meantime we encourage you to find a perfect server to call home.

Founder’s Exclusive Structure
Legendary Rapport Gift Selection Chest
Launch Limited Card Pack
*If the Founder’s Title or Founder’s Exclusive Wallpaper are used on the same Roster where a pack has already been redeemed, you will not be able to use these items.

Please note that this is a one-time grant, and we do not have plans to continue to make additional grants of items available to players in the future. For example, there will be Starter Packs available for purchase at full launch tomorrow (more details to come), and we highly recommend only redeeming them once you settle into your permanent home server.
