Should We Just Join the Private Discord Channel? | 03.03.2021, 01:56 PM

Hi folks,

I wanted to pop in here and clarify a few things that have been brought up.

First and foremost, the official forums (where you are now) are the official platform for news and announcements, and are accessible to all subscribers.

Second, it is true I am present in many Discord communities. I do so primarily so I can get a feel for what these different communities are chatting about in an effort to gather as many points of view as possible. I do this in tandem with other platforms where players self-organize that Iím aware of.

I do these things in my personal capacity, however if I interact at all I make it clear who I am in my official capacity for transparency. Since Discord seems to be the primary platform brought up here, I want to address some points..

I started joining Discord communities related to the game when I returned to the team over a year ago. Discord is interesting in that it provides real-time communication via text chat, which is vastly different than the turn-based dialogue offered by forums. I use Discord interactions in several ways:

  • General human chatting
  • Discussing hobbies
  • Gathering additional info on reported bugs or exploits
  • Guiding folks to official channels who ask where/how to report something
  • Guiding folks to official channels when asked about any information thatís unannounced (dates/future plans, etc)
  • Discussing game design in general

When discussing longer-term plans or philosophies, I use the official forums. And I refer folks back to these posts if it comes up in other communication channels. Generally, I very much enjoy spending some of my personal time on Discord as long as the interactions are healthy. As a reminder, these servers are player-run and non-official, so the rules of each community are determined by those who own the servers.

Hopefully this sheds some light on how I interact with various communities in various capacities. But itís worth re-stating again that official information will only come from official sources, including the forums here.

Hi JameRavenwood,

Can you tell us the specific items that are giving you this issue? That will help out a lot with narrowing these down and also assist with repro.

I'll be moving this thread to the Bug Report sub-forum as well.

Saboteur Gunslinger: Contingency Charges Completely Broken (Critical Spec Issue) | 03.03.2021, 11:30 AM

Our team is currently looking into it. I'll update you in this thread when I know more.

Thank you for some of the font / button changes | 03.03.2021, 11:23 AM

This is great for people with eye sight problems and I hope this becomes the norm from now on. As someone with bad eyes, I really appreciate it not having to strain to see.
What a shame you didnít put it in the patch notes as this was a positive UI update in contrast to the unpopular character pane changes.

Anyway, please pass on our thanks.
Hi TrixxieTriss,

I'm happy to pass along the message. Please know that this was not omitted intentionally. I'll be working with the team to get it added into the patch notes.

Disappearing conquest points | 03.03.2021, 11:03 AM

With the lack of small points objectives, it is annoying. Imagine it happening if you finish let's say GSF weekly or PVP weekly... That's a lot of points gone who knows where.
Hi again,

Wanted to update the thread with our findings. We did not see any points that were rolled back on your character or account. Additionally, we did not received other reports based on the same issue. If multiple players were losing their CP, we definitely would have been swarmed with reports. As of now, we do not see anything showing loss of points; however, we have record of your report and will be keeping it as reference in the event similar issues happen in the future.

Hope they look into your issue.

Dasty + group, I'll go ahead and update this point as well since I don't want info to be scattered. Dasty, If you want to create a new thread and link to my posts, you're absolutely welcome to do so. It won't be considered spam.

I should have clarified earlier. Before this release, the guild tracking of each character's conquest points did not include the guild invasion bonus. The guild point display now shows this with the current update. I'll be working to get this point added to the patch notes so the info is accessible to players outside of this thread.

When I logged back in, my conquest points had gone downwards from 38,(x) to 36230. The stronghold decorator mission is ticked done, even though my points are gone.
Hey DeannaVoyager,

Could you provide more info? Feel free to either report in-game or PM me with this info, but we need server name, character name, and account name to start.

On three characters, there is a discrepancy between what is showing for CQP when you open the personal character screen vs. what is showing when you click on the screen to monitor guild progress. In all three cases, I actually have MORE CQP showing for each individual and the total when opening the guild page.

So, for example, on one character I clocked 52,399 CQP, but the total on Guild Page shows 60,250. The total Guild Conquest Progress page is reflecting those inflated numbers, roughly 8k to 10k per character. While I appreciate the free CQP for my Guild, I imagine you will want to address this issue.

Regardless, to reinforce DeannaV's point -- something screwy is going on with CQP.

Dasty the Forum Warrior
Hi Dasty,

Guilds earn a bonus (which could be 15% or more depending on perks) to its conquest points from the character if the guild is invading a planet. This bonus is not applied to the character's personal points. This is working as designed.

SoW Gear achievements still broken | 03.02.2021, 10:03 AM
Hi DimmuJanKaarl,

Your post has been moved to the bug reports section.

The issue you're reporting is still a known issue as mentioned in the Game Update 6.2.1 - Known Issues list.

As your post is a duplicate of the following one, I will close yours to avoid confusion: Spoils of War Set Bonus items not working.
In the meantime, there is a workaround:
  • If you have the set, mail it to another character. It will fill the setlist and unlock the Achievement.

Game Update 6.2.1 - Known Issues | 03.02.2021, 09:54 AM
Here are the current known issues for Game Update 6.2.1:

    • Players can't start the cinematic at the step "Speak to Kira Carsen" when Theron is dead but Arcann and Senya are alive in Echoes of Oblivion.

    • There is a WIP message at the top-left of the window when an Amplifier is selected and Recalibration Window opened.

      • Cargo Hold
    • The tooltip of the Patient Defender's Armor Set doesn't mention that this Armor Set has two types of Chestpieces.

      • Players who receive the wrong weapon need to contact Customer Support with a ticket or email at to exchange it for the correct one.
  • Known issues from 6.2:
    • The tracker for some equipment sets of the Spoils of War Achievement is not correctly working. It may show a random number like: 47/1.
      • Workaround: If you have the set, mail it to another character. It will fill the setlist and unlock the Achievement.
Belts/Waists texture issues: Players who play via Steam and encounter texture issues with belts and waist need to check their file integrity (repair).
