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.
- Any copyright infringement or piracy is absolutely forbidden. Your designs should be just that – your own designs!
Exceptions are S4L related assets.
We'll decide at the end if this effects our rules or not.
Please keep this in mind.
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
- Railgun - FOV and Delay changes
- View Angle:
- Delay Time:
- View Angle:
- Rail Gun - Critical (head) damage is the same as the body damage - fixed
- 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
- X-mas Ophelia Gloves - wrong texture
- 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
- Railgun - FOV and Delay changes
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.
What is love?
We'll fix and adjust the winner's background of the last event with the upcoming forum adjustments.
We have started to send the Items. It should be finished soon.
We've just collected the data during the maintenance. From there it takes a bit.
Should be finished in the next couple of days.
I have planned some stuff before I made this thread, here I list what has been prepared on my side:
S h outbox
is planned, connected to the discord #general-chat (only accessible when logged in)
My ideas are from Aeria Games forum
- Add Social Media tab in the top bar
- Add Report a Bug in the right side of the forum
- Add news slider over forums
- Put the logo in the middle instead of the corner
- Add Facebook advertising (less important)
- Add forum badges (from Twin Saga and wolfteam forum)
- Add Discord Integration (Wolfteam forum)
Header gets a change, maybe also with symbols for the social channels. Here I made 2 different options, let's see what works out better.
Box with a direct link to the bug form is a good idea. (hasn't been planned yet)
I plan to get a different slider, which will replace the logo and show news, events etc.
Forum badges will be added and updated with the Icons of the ranks. Also will get new roles.
Discord Sync is planned, but since we have 2 different DBs we have to come up with a solution.
If you have more ideas, post them. I'll check them at the end of the month with the team.
what was the goal again?
oh yeah 3 7 3
here we go again...
We gonna plan to give the forum a fresh new look. And therefore we need your opinion!
Please vote in this poll, so we can customize the forum for your needs.
If you want to have something useful included to the forum, please write down a comment.
Thank you guys for your opinion!
Most likely on Thursday 10 am CEST

Now show us your wonderful designs and more importantly, have fun!
We'll send the rewards right after the next maintenance.
We are aware that the Pretender is still in a state where it shouldn't be.
We are working to change it with the next patch, maybe already the next week.
We've discovered this issue at the end of the patch and couldn't change it anymore, since it needs a client site patch and thus a new patch build is needed.
We understand that this shouldn't have happened and we've learned from it.
closing a thread which has been alive
What you describe is another issue which has been reported to the team.
The one above was a service issue.
And we are also looking for improvement on the entry lag.
The Vital Shock is the last released unique weapon (not talking about re-skins etc.). The developers back then didn't created an I-cap for it. Our development team is currently investigating in it and we will release new capsules in the future

Jumps rooms are allowed to show other players how to perform specific jumps.
Need to be displayed as "Jump Room".
If you get caught in there staying around AFK or just chatting, it is against the in-game and event rules again and can also end up in a disqualification.

It is not allowed and can disqualify you from the event.
Please do not revive old threads (>60 days).
Therefore I'll lock this thread.
1. Hire some experienced developers.
I think that this is vital to the game, given that it is barely playable at the moment, needless to say that there are many gamebreaking bugs that make the game unplayable (I can't even join rooms rofl).
Here I have to quote Hella_Hell
This is easier said than done when the code is written by someone else. Even the old devs couldn't fix their game properly and you expect someone completely unfamiliar with the code to do it? Also the fact that they are messing around with the game means that they are trying out stuff which is good.
The devs are learning about the game's code and are getting better over time.
2. Market the game (properly).
Another vital part of making a game is advertising it properly. I think investing in some ads would be the go-to method. Also, am I the only one who remembers that S4 League actually used to have ads on TV and stuff?
Now let's watch the game from outside. A 'tabula rasa' is seeing an advertisement of this game, let's say... on Facebook. The person downloads the game, plays 1 game, crashes and deletes it again. Wasted opportunity in marketing.
Priority here is to fix the game first. Once we've managed to handle the worst issues we can advertise more, make more cooperation and even more awesome stuff.
3. Involve the community.
I think that this isn't only a way to get more content (by making costume creation contests, for example), but also a way to acknowledge the fact that there are talented people in our community that can improve the game tremendously. Did I mention that it is FREE?
We are involving the community and collect feedback for changes on the game, sales and our events. We are also currently developing the sets of the last community design event (farmer and basketball theme). Designing isn't even the hardest part. Modeling is it and is the most time consuming thing in the process. You can still give us feedback here: https://goo.gl/forms/RWlCY65vmGQvWSbI3
4. Add some easter eggs/references
Maybe I'm the only one who values easter eggs in my games, but I'm still going to put it on the list. When I say easter eggs, I think of wearable items, like a Hatsune Miku hairstyle or something like this.
First thing I have to consider here is the copyright of such things. Yes, we have already some sets with a reference and also yes, we have such ideas in mind
5. Remove/improve small details that ruin the game experience.
-The first thing a player sees is the GUI, so let's begin with this one. It's horrible...no, really, there's really nothing else to say. The colour combo between blue and orange does not match the aesthetic of the game IMO, needless to say that it's an eyesore. I think reverting it to the previous one would be a start, I think anything is better than the one we have now.
-Item descriptions. There are just so many descriptions that don't even make sense. The most ridiculous example would be the Frying Storm Bat: "If use this Weapon, You Can Feeling power and strength!". There are more awkward descriptions, but for me, this one takes the cake.
-Item names. They fall under the same umbrella as the previous topic (descriptions). They're generally typos, or weirdly spelled words.
To both of these, I'd be more than happy to tweak/rewrite some of them *wink* (it's not like I have anything better to do anyway).
The UI definitely needs a change. In-game and also in the lobby, no doubt. The team thinks the same way
Therefore we are planning already and we want to change a lot.
The loca files of some items can be changed, but they need to be changed in 5 languages and then it also needs a proper reason before we do so. if you find a typo, let us know.
How are we supposed to get new players into the game, when they go against mostly Full FP players enchanted to oblivion and back? I had several people
The all mighty p2w topic. We are not gonna remove those stats. People paid for it and we also offer a lot of options to get some free stuff (also in FP).
Only thing where we can argue about are the enchantments to be fair. But we didn't forget that and have already some plans.
After some time we've decided to be more transparent with our bug fixes and show you every fix which has been applied to the game.
There are some minor bug fixes and some major bug fixes. In the past we've been showing you the major ones mostly.
Maps & Modes
- Snowball Fight - removed
- Weapon stats not showing when killed - fixed
- Localisation of pet items is missing /wrong - fixed
- Fixed crash picking up a weapon while shooting in training - fixed
- Disconnect from spectator when disabling spectators - fixed
- Unable to start conquest and Training modes - fixed
- Display Bug (Gifting AP Items) - fixed

Hi Xane ,
I understand that you've concerns for the game and their development and that you want to have more transparency about what is happening and how far they've progressed with each steps. Unfortunately, I cannot give you details on that, but I assure you that the development team is a group of dedicated developers for S4 League and that they all give their best to fix problems and implement new things to the game. It just takes some time.
