    This is a very old report and the company's ethics have changed in the last year.
    In the gaming industry a game is never called dead until the development completely stops.

    As many times stated, the code is a mess, it is hard to work on a code, where a lot of teams have worked on already, everyone with their own style.
    As Hella said

    You touch one, another breaks. Even the korean devs couldn't fix most of the problems and they got carried over to the current version.


    And I hear a lot of people talking about that the last patches had to many bugs and now that it takes to long to fix.
    This is both related to each other. The devs currently try to deploy a build which has not new bugs and our QA team is hunting the bugs down.

    This is a time consuming process and needs a lot of checks.

    There is no thread to explain the whole system and there shouldn't be a need for that.
    You should be aware of the rules and respect them. But I'll carry this point to the team for discussion.

    Even I don't have a date for the Patch, nor for the PM Letter.

    My little teased project was planned to be published last week, but due some higher queues in other departments it is not ready yet. But will be online before the gamescom.

    Dear S4 Leaguers,

    [666]Nanna

    Congratulations to you. You were Elsa from the animated movie Frozen and you used the unique block skill to spawn ice, very clever.


    But, we also had a last judge, who wanted to hand over a prize.

    Our PMs favorite content was the short but funny video about Aladin. In a very funny and jaded way they made some of us smile and giggle.

    Congratulations to linoy & -Dad for their performance!


    You'll receive both a Set of Choice (FP Perm) and 100K PEN and a Dual Mastery Skill (+20/+20 Perm) each.

    Please contact us with the set of choice you would like to receive.

    Hi, this issue has been reported already and our developer are looking into this.


    In the meantime you can test several things:


    • Delete s4_UserData.s4 before starting the game
    • Try to scale your resolution down
    • join a different server before you join the server you want to play on

    Yes we had to take the icons from the game. I don't have the original source file...
    The first attempt was scaled poorly, but we have fixed it now,

    This was just the first step of the changes I had planned. If you've suggestions for the forum changes or are interested in the upcoming changes check out Forum Changes

    As said, I am waiting for feedback of the PM, who currently is out of office and will be back soon. Once I got more information, I can give you a proper answer.

    The taken decision to lock the previous thread, has been advised by me due changes of the topic. If you have any feedback, please share it to us in a constructive way.


    You are free to discuss your topic here, but please consider our forum rules.

    Hello Leaguers, we have voted and it was a really close race between the 2nd and the 3rd place and a well deserved 1st place for our winner. We've never seen such a close voting. Apart from this we want to thank every participant who send us their artwork and we also want to thank you with a tiny gift. Every serious participant will get 10K Pen on their account and 3 Craft Set Capsules as a bonus.

    Introducing the COPYCAT Event !!


    HOW TO PARTICIPATE?

    You can participate in two different disciplines or pick one of them; Video and/or Screenshots (You can make a simple screenshot or a composition like a comic strip)

    For that purpose you will have to check what you have available in your wardrobe (Inventory), get creative and equip your character as good as you can to make him/her look like the main character appearing on that scene.

    Your S4 League Team

    Thank you, for all your feedback!

    We are currently at a state of changes and have started to work on fixing major bugs. As always there can appear new unwanted bugs which have slipped trough the QA or which are not that mandatory as other bugs and will be fixed later. We have learned from our mistakes in the past months and have developed new strategies to offer you better patches.

    We understand that you love the game and want to have it in the state as it is in your nostalgic memories.
    We may not always fit all expectation, but I can tell you that we care about the game and your opinion.

    Banner1_05JUNE.png


    Hello Leaguers,


    And again the time has come for a new patch and today the patch is a little bit bigger than usual. We've been working on this for weeks now and have learned from previous failures to enhance our methods and bring you a higher quality with our patches. Our NetSphere will get a lot of bug fixes, some new minor bugs have appeared, but won't bother you a lot. Oh, and the Railgun got tweaked a bit.
    So let's have a look at the changes and what will be new with this patch :)



    Weapons


    • Railgun - FOV and Delay changes
      • View Angle: 15 20
      • Delay Time: 1 1.5


    Bugfixes



    Weapons


    • Rail Gun - Critical (head) damage is the same as the body damage - fixed



    Game


    • Starting a match with no weapons and skill - fixed
    • Wrong map textures when joining match in progress - fixed
    • Players joining mid game have no stats and are not affected by stats - partially fixed
    • Locked main menu after room master changes match settings - fixed
    • Not possible to pick the ball if the rooms master leaves - fixed



    Known Issues



    Costumes


    • X-mas Ophelia Gloves - wrong texture


    Game


    • Misplaced/not visible crowns in Captain mode
    • Character slot bug when leaving a room after changing a character
    • RailGun crits are sill not working in Scenario mode

    I had to answer to this several times yesterday.

    We are currently in a time of changes and I am also someone who appreciate such work.

    Since I've started in the team, we have been working on the security part of the game. Our next step now will be the game stability and then some new content.

    This already takes time and is fundamental for a game. Having a competitive ranking system is something that can follow after all of this.

    1. Having a competetive mode while the game itself is running on a "P2W System" is biting itself.

    And here I agree totally. To make competitive matchmaking, this is something which grants an advantage. And competitive gaming should not be effected by an advantage of money.


    We have other plans at the moment. More fundamental ones and something to bring some fresh air into the game. Once we have resolved all this and also gained more players back, we might could figure out a ranking and elo system.


    Also, little hint: Concepts should have a bit more depth. Numbers are cool, but how are they related to each other? But I like the idea itself.
