Patch 18.2 – Connection Performance Improvements

Hello, Defenders! Thanks to your reports on our Bug Reporting Site, we’ve been able to track down some of the lag issues in our game! This patch for PC & PS4 should improve connection performance for a large number of players.

Please note that this is not a complete and total fix of all connection performance issues. You may still experience issues while playing, and our team is dedicated to crushing them. More fixes will come. Also note that some of these fixes may create additional issues, so please help us keep an eye out for any new bugs and report them to the Bug Reporting Site!

Connection Performance Improvements

  • Optimized towers to potentially fix the multi-builder lag issue. Please let us know if the issue still persists, or if your towers aren’t updating properly when you change items or hotswap between heroes.

  • Fixed several issues that were causing our servers’ CPUs to spike. These issues would cause what looked like lag in the game. Please let us know if your heroes are not properly getting XP after this change.


Holiday Event Complete

  • The Holiday Event is now over! We hope you enjoyed your presents!

  • Just like the real holidays, the decorations may be gone but the snowpocalypse lingers. Stay warm out there.

Is there a glitch or bug going on with the gold collecting  spheres ?   Because i was getting  gold before the update  and now i barely get any gold now. By gold i mean the  gold coins  used to enchant gear because it gets very expensive  to enchant  and alot of grinding to make the the amount needed.

Yes, they aren't working properly right now, just like exp spheres.

The servers are still down for patch deployment. We're hoping to have the game back up and running in 1-2 hours.

So I just did a short multi builder live stream to check out the lag. There was none!!!! Great job Trendy at isolating this issue and showing massive improvements. I am just so happy that we can work together now to build maps!

Thanks for this.

Lag seems to be about the same or slightly less.

Details of game play:

4 players in campaign normal

Several diff maps starting with maldonis map, only without maldonis :-p

Multi builders

1 player was using Gunwitch. 


Also,

What is meant with this?

"Fixed several issues that were causing our servers’ CPUs to spike. These issues would cause what looked like lag in the game. Please let us know if your heroes are not properly getting XP after this change."


What is "properly getting XP"? A friend of mine Just did 2 diff runs on Harbinger. 1 with level 50 heroes in deck and 1 without level 50 heroes. He got 260,050 XP either way. This is the same # we got from Harbinger normal campaign. So, that is the same. Am I misunderstanding this paragraph?

Looks good at first run! Could you fix the issue that the pet bag is always open when I return to inventory? ;)

This should go away with the new UI coming soon. (that's my story and i'm sticking to it!)

Yeah, there are some problems with it. We're making a lot of changes with the spheres so hopefully should be resolved with that update.
