  1. DEFENDERS, We’ve been talking a lot about what’s to come in Dungeon Defenders: Awakened future, teasing at various bits here and there, and by making this sentence even longer, we’re still teasing more just putting off the inevitable of what’s coming your way. Real quick, let’s talk about how Ramsters came to exist. Hamster and ram? That doesn’t even make any sense! Oh wait, you probably wanted to talk about the first thing. Okay, time to talk about the first thing. Let’s get into it. Episodes Now what the heck are Episodes? Well in short, they’re our FREE major content updates, but MCU was already taken (you may have heard of it), so Episodes it is! We covered the “in short”, so now it’s time to describe the “in long”. An Episode continues the story of our heroes adventure but it also does a lot of other things, specifically they ADD A LOT OF NEW CONTENT. But what is “content”, where does it come from, and does it truly exist? To answer in reverse order, yes it exists, we make it, and that first one is too philosophical, and we’re sure you want to get right to the good stuff.So let’s talk about what you can expect. New Maps In each episode of Dungeon Defenders Awakened you’ll be receiving four new maps that increase in difficulty off the base campaign. We’re following a formula for the new maps where we provide a brand new map as well as recreate three fan favorite maps. Maybe we’re going to show off the first one later on in this post (spoiler: we are). New Enemy With each episode, there will be a new enemy that comes into the fray. The new enemy will be similar to the nightmare enemies, bringing in new mechanics that you’ll need to thwart in order to achieve victory. New Boss The last map of each episode contains a brand spankin’ new boss. These are similar to the previous bosses, requiring more active hero combat to take them down. They will be thematic to the content that we’re releasing, as well provide unique and thematic loot. New Heroes Yes, that’s correct, PLURAL. Each episode contains two heroes, with one hero being a throwback to a previous hero, and the other being a completely brand new hero. These heroes are meant to stand on their own and feel wholly unique from one another. New Gear We’ll be providing a slew of new gear that continues to follow previous item progression. There’s also a ton of fun stuff we’ll be adding (that we’ll get into in the coming weeks), that we’ll continue to build off of. Stay tuned for more info! New Features This is going to be super nebulous, but there’s a lot of stuff we’re looking to add that really makes your journeys in Etheria a lot more exciting. More to hunt, more to do, more to conquer, more more more more more! Quality of Life, Overhauls, and Polish We’re going to be addressing a lot of systems in the game that were put into a “good enough” state for our release, and getting them into a “great enough” state, if that’s a thing. For our first episode, this means overhauling the inventory and item tooltips (which we’ll be showing off in the coming weeks). Bug Fixes, Balance, Etc. This is the stuff you normally see in patches, but of course it’ll be included in our Episodes as well. We’ll continue to get out patches to address these things. Supporter Packs With each episode, we will be offering a supporter pack that players can purchase. These things offer cosmetic only items that apply to weapons and accessory slots. Since the episodes are free, we’re offering this as players have asked us for additional ways to support our development, and we thought this would be the most fair way to do so. Episode 1 We’re going to be showing off pieces of the episode over time, and what better time than right after explaining what’s in an episode?! How about a piece of the first episode? Sounds like a good idea to us, so without further ado, here is the first map of Episode 1: The Mill. The Mill The Mill is the first stop the heroes make upon leaving the castle to continue their journey. They enter a bright and vibrant forest that used to be used to provide lumber and materials for building the castle and nearby towns. Though it seems calm and peaceful, an army of enemies awaits to prevent our heroes from pushing onward with their journey. If you squint REALLY hard you’ll notice that this map is a remake of a fan favorite, and highly requested map, Mistymire. We made a couple of changes to make building defenses feel better, as well as modified some lanes to make things play out more smoothly. During the last wave, this map will also introduce our new enemy for the Episode. We’re wanting to make sure that as you play through the maps of each episode, you’re introduced to a new enemy over time while taking on potentially new mechanics depending on your game mode. What’s Next? We’re going to continue to reveal more and more about Episode 1 over time, with the goal of revealing something new at the end of the week, every week. If we run into any issues, we’ll let you know, but everything is coming together, so it’s time to start showing off some of our hard work. We hope you enjoy it!

  2. DEFENDERS, A new day, a new chance to talk about everything going on in hallowed halls of Chromatic Games. We’re still working from home, so some halls might be dusty or cluttered, but hallowed nonetheless. There’s a ton of exciting news for us to talk about regarding all of our work (some of it is meh, but who cares, it’s news anyways). Let’s get into it! Dungeon Defenders: Awakened It’s no secret that a lot of you are hungry for all the new things that we’re going to be doing. Internally, we discussed showing these things over time, to not only keep anticipation up for what’s to come, but to also make sure things were in a ready state to share so that it avoids frustration if the systems change to something else (things other studios do to avoid player frustration). We’re throwing that OUT THE WINDOW and we’re going to discuss the next episode of DDA in its entirety. Slap on your helmet, it’s going to get wild. Episode 1: Swampy Jim’s Revenge Previously, Mistymire was a really adored map due to the scenery being very familiar with that of northern Florida (where we are based). We thought “what if we went DEEPER into the swamp” and did just that. New Map - Sludge Swamp Sludge Swamp is our new map. The entire map submerges all your characters and defenses in swamp and slows movement of both players and enemies, but it comes with a ton of elemental effects. For instance, due to methane leaks, any fire damage deals a larger explosion, that applies friendly fire. Electric damage stuns both players and enemies within an unknown vicinity. Poison damage can cause a sinkhole. It might be hard to see where traps are placed, but we felt that it was worth it for these awesome elemental effects. New Enemy - The Banjolier This enemy is an etherian who has been corrupted by the Swamp’s fumes and no longer recognizes humanity. Instead they only know of what they came into the Swamp with, most of them for some reason being banjos. The Banjolier begins to play his banjo, enraging enemies around him with how poorly he plays (he never took lessons). Please do not interrupt the Banjolier’s song, as he will ignore you and become even more enraged. The best way to deal with him is to give him the new “Swamp Pop” popsicle bait that is hidden throughout the map, and he will go on his merry way. New Boss - Swampy Jim Sludge Swamp is actually the sovereign territory of Swampy Jim. His lineage is that of royalty from Etheria’s past, but they moved out into the swamp for tasty fish and haven’t looked back since. Swampy Jim is very territorial and is going to be standing his ground to push out the Defenders from passing through into other lands, to break free of the realm they are stuck in. Swampy Jim drives a fan boat powered by a gator, named Roberta, that spins its tail fast to propel the boat. He flies by, trying to hit you with his pitchfork, “Delores Jr.”, to make you go on and git. We’re currently working with a certain voice actor (fans of Rick and Morty might know him) to get the VO to be the best you’ve seen with your own eyes. Some people might claim it’s the Scavenger from DD2, but it’s not. That character has a hole in his left shoe, not right which is the trademark to Swampy Jim. New Hero - Wall Eweeji We know that blockades fall off, so we decided to make a new hero that has incredibly strong blockades that you would be a fool not to use. Enter Wall Eweeji, a witch doctor/etherian plumber wearing purple that builds every type of wall you could think of: blockade that doesn’t deal damage, blockade that deals damage, the big two. His abilities are focused on being able to run quickly specifically to defenses to repair them. Mama mia that’s a lot of fun! New Hero - The Andrew There’s a lot of war going on in Etheria, so we wanted a hero that was focused more on peace, love, and flower power. We have a local hippie in town named Andrew, and so we made a hero kind of based around him. Flowers that fight for you, roots that trip up your opponents, and something to do with mushrooms blowing up or blowing your mind? We weren’t sure what he meant by that last one, but we’re keeping our rating, so it won’t be too crazy. New Feature - Taxes A lot of people have wanted additional reasons for gold, and given that April is here, and that a lot of educational institutions don’t include proper finance education, we figured why not gamify it and help teach people about taxes. Now when you upgrade your items, you will have to pay the Etherian Tax, which is roughly 15%. This allows us to introduce a new feature, that addresses a problem players have outlined, while also being educational. Awesome! New Currency - Chromie Coins Now, we’re trying to stay as hip as we can with bleeding edge tech, and thus we invented Chromie Coins. Chromie Coins are a new crypto currency that you can earn by running DD:A all day and night, even when not playing, to mine for Chromie Coins. Chromie Coins can then be used to upgrade your gear and bypass the new Taxes feature. How do Chromie Coins work you may be asking? They just do. Onto the next paragraph! New Game Mode - Auto Partier Some of the gaming trends that have popped up through the past couple years have been autobattlers and party games. We mix Tower Defense and ARPG, so we thought, why not mix those as well. Introducing Auto Partier, a revolutionary game mode that lets you pick your character to complete various platforming and detective puzzles, and then it plays for you! We’ve built over 100 levels that the game gets to play for you. It’s an experimental feature, so please give us a ton of feedback. One thing that we will not be changing is that you can use Chromie Coins to increase your chances of winning, as it feeds the AI that plays for you. New Gear - Backpacks We’re potentially teaming up with JanSport to introduce a new slot in the form of Backpacks. It’s not only a cosmetic slot that lets you choose between 3 backpacks that have your hero’s name embroidered on them (using the new Embroidicon technology in UE 4.25), it also adds an additional 5 spaces to your inventory. You can also acquire the deluxe backpack through DLC that DOUBLES your inventory space. Now that’s a deal! New Company - Monochromatic Games Imagine all your favorite Dungeon Defenders games, but in black and white, with audio that is described on title cards, going back to the golden era of game making. Well Monochromatic Games has you covered. Coming in a summer, you’ll be able to use circular slice and then have a title card say “AHHHHHH” *swoosh noises*, the way games were meant to be made. There’s probably more coming, but we forgot about it, so for now let’s just assume that’s all there is. Wow, cool. Bug Fixes There aren’t anymore, we actually got them all with the last update, and any reports moving forward will flag you as a hacker/cheater. Dungeon Defenders II We’ve decided that we’re going to sell Dungeon Defenders II to the team that makes the Persona franchise dance games. Dancing with the Defenders is what they’ve outlined their project to be, and we’re onboard. Sorry, this means no more DD2 development. That said we will be adding defender packs that you can purchase through ebay only that give you all new cosmetics that you might be able to use in Dancing with the Defenders! Now that’s epic. Social Defenders We have social media and you can follow it. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, Musically, Myspace, Friendster, Stickam, MSNMessenger OR AOL Instant Messenger (not both), and also certain newspapers. Follow us for a chance to win! As always thank you for your support and time, we feed them to the support lord and time lord respectively. They hunger, but soon, the day of determination will be upon us. Smooches, Chrome Games
  3. DEFENDERS, We’re bringing you some news of a game that you may not have seen us post in a little while about. That game is… DUNGEON DEFENDERS II. That’s right, we’ve got some development going on for DD2 that we’re excited to share with you. Some of the stuff you’ll see in the short term, some stuff in the long term, and along the way we’ll be getting your input to help us out. Let’s get into it! Content First things first, the Etherian Polar Vortex has ended and you’ll soon have access to a snowless Tavern and Town Hub. Now you may be asking “WHAT ABOUT THE GIFTING TREE!?!?!?!”. Well never fear, we’re adding in a new feller — enter: Ol’ Peepers. Ol’ Peepers is a gracious old kook who will grant players a daily login gift. We’ll go into more of what his gift contains, as it’s been adjusted to be more focused on gameplay with some cosmetic pieces here and there. Player Friendly Pricing We’re introducing a slew of bundles for players looking to support DD2 through the shop, and we’re experimenting with bundles that are focused on being very fair to you, our GLORIOUS Defenders. This means hero bundles, costume bundles, and even a new tower skin bundle that has tower skins new to the next update! Balance We’ve taken a nice pass to get some buffs going to really focus on the gameplay. Some things that were rate capped due to animations? NO MORE! Oh, and give a hearty “welcome back” to the shocking revelations (now named Stunning Revelations) and water mod combo, now with 100% more balance but 1000% more fun than it currently is. Also something about pets getting buffed, who knows... maybe it's a rumor, probably not. FEEDBACK Last but not least, we want to hear about what your favorite things are and what your thoughts are. Fill out this survey to let us know and really help us in future development, and by completing the survey be entered for a chance to win a FREE costume of your choice. Retweet the survey (link here) for an additional chance to win! Bug Fixes A TON of them, including a lot of fixes for exploits and unintended bugaboos that have plagued the heroes of Etheria. Nothing to write about just quite yet, but we got out the swatter and squished a ton of those lousy bugs. On The Horizon There’s a lot of stuff that we want to do, and as mentioned, your feedback will be more helpful. We’re wanting to add all sorts of new challenges, maps, shards, mods, characters, and more for you to overcome, explore, and master respectively (some of those words could be mixed and matched and still make sense).

  7. DEFENDERS, Yesterday we released Update 1.1 which brought in a ton of great stuff, being the tip of the iceberg for what you can expect to see coming in future additions for Dungeon Defenders: Awakened! With that, we’ve got something we’d like to address that wasn’t in the original patch notes to help bring clarity to some previously gray understandings. Tower and Hero Buff Interactions Update 1.1 changed how buffs work across the board and may be why certain setups feel weaker. Previously buffs were multiplicative and allowed some pretty crazy builds to appear, and this was before we even brought Series EV-A’s Overclock Beam into the equation. As a result, we made buffs additive instead of multiplicative. There are some big reasons for this kind of change, and we’ll touch on two of them. Anytime we want to add another tower or damage interaction into the game with future heroes or mechanics, we have to take into consideration how it all multiplies and balance it properly. This leads to additional Hero nerfs or releasing new Heroes with weaker tower/hero interactions. Ultimately limiting fun Hero mechanics later. Adding additional content, we’d have to take into consideration the buff builds that people were using. What happens is that the disparity between people using full buff builds, some buffs in their builds, and no buffs in their builds drastically increases, meaning content is steam rolled by one build, while another has no shot, further requiring a meta, instead of a meta making something easier but not absolutely required. We’re keeping a close eye on these changes now that they are out live, but received a lot of great feedback previously through our testing with Cavalry and RQA. Bug Fixes Fixed an issue where the Demon Lords ground flames were hitting the Crystal Core. Fixed an issue with the radial menu not correctly pulling names and descriptions. Fixed an issue with Achievements not displaying properly. Fixed an issue with host costume colors not replicating correctly for clients. Fixed an issue with how the Ancient Dragon was flying between positions. Fixed an issue where the top caps of Series EV-A Fields were not properly appearing. Fixed an issue with the Demon Lord’s swords not replicating properly in survival. Fixed an issue that caused default bag names from showing correctly. Fixed an issue with build mana on Massacre Survival Arcane Library Wave 14. Fixed an issue where the Demon Lord’s flying charge could damage the Crystal Core. Adjusted how spiders spawn to avoid a mass amount spawning at the end of the wave. Added Series EV-A’s second double jump animation. Adjusted the Deadly Striker Tower’s priority, so that Goblin Copters now take priority over spiders. Adjusted how bonus armor is displayed from Overclock Beam. Adjusted the quality of loot dropped in early maps for Massacre Survival. Adjusted projectile counts to only show if they are greater than one for weapon tooltips. Fixed an issue with how tower stat buffs are shown on tooltips. Added Sirens to Massacre Survival Tornado Valley. Fixed an issue with the Siren’s body having collision after being defeated. Fixed a visual issue on Summit that caused assets to visually disappear. Fixed an issue where Sirens and their buffed enemies weren’t displaying an icon. Fixed an issue with how Melee Damage and Melee DPS were calculated on item tooltips. They visually showed higher values than what they were actually doing. If you run into any additional bugs or have points of feedback, please visit our Discord as we have a new reporting system for bugs and feedback that allows us to parse through things as they appear. Known Issues We're looking into an issue with Enrage Aura interactions. Enrage Aura has been capped at 65% chance to enrage enemies while we continue to investigate. Challenge map balance in lower difficulties is a little too difficult currently. All items may appear as upgrades after swapping heroes. Visual issues that range across various tooltips. There's a crash related to using a QWERTZ/Czech keyboard. Possible workaround is to change the Windows keyboard setting to English. We’re still working on making sure any and all bugs that appear get squashed pretty quickly and thank you for all the feedback you’ve provided so far. While we’re getting these fixes in, we’ve already begun work on our next updates and can’t wait to share our work with you.

  8. DEFENDERS, We’re hard at work to make DDA the best it can be, so why not get a little bit closer to that goal by pushing out some hotfixes. Let’s get into it! Bug Fixes Fixed an issue that caused a crash while travelling between maps. Fixed multiple issues with the auto reject hacker option. Fixed an issue where the core taking damage notification was hiding the mouse on the escape menu. Fixed an issue with missing collision on Endless Spires. Fixed multiple issues where transferring profiles were not transferring properly or loading data properly.

  9. DEFENDERS, Another week, another round of fixes coming your way. Let’s get into it! Bug Fixes Fixed an issue where Play save data (created from Legacy transfer) was not locally saving correctly. Fixed an issue in multiplayer, after losing, where an "award" notification with no award text and 0 as the value that sticks on screen. Fixed an issue where the chat box was losing focus mid chat. Fixed an issue where the chat box was not cancelling input as intended. Fixed an issue where ping messages wouldn’t fade if the chat box was already faded. Fixed an issue where right clicking the default weapon brings up an empty context menu. Fixed an issue where enemies are spawning on the TacMap in the center of map and then warp to their actual location a second or two later. Fixed an issue where sell-all would sell recently locked items. Fixed an issue where Legacy to Play transfers would fail and have to be attempted multiple times.

  10. DEFENDERS, We just pushed out a hotfix that is focused towards anyone with a Legacy profile and looking to use the Legacy Transfer tool. Let’s get into it! Legacy Transfer Tool On Wednesday, we pushed this tool out so that players were able to bring their Legacy profiles over to “Play” before Legacy is closed in the coming weeks. We had discussed with our community previously that the reason Legacy wasn’t brought over initially and given its own space was because of the work involved to make it happen, on top of the unknowns that could cause more work. When pushing this out to thousands of Defenders with a broad spectrum of different setups, what we test internally and with our RQA group doesn’t always match one to one. There were two issues that arose. Legacy Progression The first is that because of various reasons, a very small amount of players were able to continue progressing on Legacy when playing. Those that were prevented was due to a check that would have overwritten parts of the profile, causing it to become corrupt and essentially wiping all your progress. So here is what our solutions were: Apply a fix that we knew worked internally, but given the nature of how profile saving works, potentially wipe out some player profiles when they try to transfer and not have a way to recover them. Disable progression on Legacy, leaving profiles intact and able to be transferred with little to no issues. We’re going to be going with solution 2, because there’s just enough unknowns with the first that we don’t feel is safe. The TL;DR is that progression on Legacy is disabled, but transferring after this hotfix should be smooth sailing. Data Overwrite The second issue is related to players who have already transferred their profiles. If you have successfully transferred from Legacy to Play since our Wednesday, June 10th, hotfix (ver. 1.0.1.17266) and also played on Play before the Wednesday, June 10th, hotfix (ver. 1.0.1.17266) please do the following: Navigate to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\DDS\Saved\SaveGames Move the _SECURE version. e.g. DDA_Player_76561198051185047_SECURE.esv to your desktop or other location. Launch DDA again and keep playing. The reason for doing so is that with your local data and cloud data, there’s a chance that it can read the save and overwrite your transfer data with a previous save. By doing the above, it removes the chance of that happening completely. What we’re doing here is a bit of uncharted territory and means that ultimately there are going to be some hurdles we run into. Our goal is to do what we can so that our players have the best experience playing as possible and be transparent regarding any issues we run into as we strive for that goal. Shadow Costumes With this hotfix, we’re also going to be pushing the previously promised Shadow Costumes to our pre 1.0 purchasers. These are not the same as the pre-order costumes, which will be coming at a later date.

  11. DEFENDERS, We’ve been hard at work trying to get our first patch out to you all that has some additional goodies. We’re looking to make good on our word, providing our early supporters with some rewards and options to look stylish as well as play with newer Defenders much easier. Let’s just get right into it! New Content and Features For Early Supporters Shadow Costumes Shadow Costumes have been added for anyone who purchased Dungeon Defenders: Awakened before the 1.0 launch. We will be handing them out automatically in the next few days. Legacy Transfer Tool We’ve added a Legacy to Play transfer tool. This tool has a one time use that replaces your Play data (heroes, gear, and progression) with a modified version of your Legacy data (heroes, gear, and progression). This is what happens when you use this tool: Delete any characters and gear obtained through Play. Transfer your Legacy characters and gear to Play. Reset all Legacy gear upgrades. Refund the gold spent on upgrades to a bank cap of 300 Billion. Apply 1.0 balanced max upgrade levels on your gear. Disable further play on Legacy. We initially announced this tool would be available to players for a week, but have since decided to provide it up until our next big update that brings Massacre Survival and some other unannounced goodies. We’ll be getting a roadmap out for our updates and general plans as part of our continued transparency efforts, but this should extend the period for this tool by several weeks, giving Legacy players plenty of time to get their saves over. This is only available to those with Legacy profiles. Updates Chicken Soccer Mini-game added to VIP Tavern. Players now Auto-Reject Hacker Join requests, and must be manually disabled via the options menu. Spawn Protection System added so you cannot be killed immediately upon respawning. Bosses in Massacre drop unique weapons. Let the hunt begin! Tavern visuals updated slightly. Keybinding improvements which include the ability to bind Shift and Alt to any action. Hover descriptions on the various selections located on the main menu. Balance Demon Lord fireball projectile speed reduced on lower difficulties. Glitterhelm Ogres spawn timers adjusted so they don't take a minute to spawn after the last enemy spawns.\ Bug Fixes Fixed most cases when you sell all as a client with a large number of items in the inventory you would be kicked. Fixed an issue causing the hero deck to open up when using the letter H in the chat box. Fixed an issue where start from wave 15 is locked instead of wave 14. Fixed some collision issues on Endless Spires. Fixed an issue where Lava Mines Pure Strategy is missing its mana drops during waves. Fixed an issue where pets don't face forward on 3 maps. Fixed a missing string table under the block category. Fixed an issue where the Redeem Code would always be successful as it was telling you that it was successful in running the redeem code code. Fixed an issue where Trophies can not be seen by clients. Fixed an issue where Darkness traps are failing to remove the visuals of elemental buff an enemy has, the trap itself is working as intended though. Fixed an issue where the Demon Lord gets stuck while flying. Fixed an issue where enemies were getting stuck in the air in the Alchemical Labs challenge. Fixed an issue where you can't scroll to the last option in the Gameplay Tab in the Options UI. Fixed an issue where VFX are turning off and on randomly in lower graphical settings. Fixed an issue where Mixed Mode maps don't display how to unlock. Fixed an issue where campaign pets can drop with no quality on Massacre. Fixed an issue where Enemies are spawning in the larger part of Lava Mines on lower difficulties. Fixed an issue where shooting the Blacksmith makes him fall under the ground for clients. Fixed an issue where some achievements were being granted when they shouldn't be. Fixed an issue where the Chicken didn't want to attack Training Dummies. Fixed some locations where Localization would break the value fields. Fixed an issue where enemies are spawning outside Arcane Library and getting stuck there. Fixed an issue where Glitterhelm Wave 6 Campaign Massacre doesn't have a build timer. Fixed an issue where a last wave award notification would be stuck on screen during the next build phase. Fixed an issue where certain enemies were spawning on Tornado Highlands Pure Strategy that shouldn't be on Nightmare difficulty. Fixed an issue where enemies are leaving their lanes on Royal Gardens. Fixed an issue where the Squire Level-Up sound would be played twice. Fixed an issue where Ping icons would be scaling up to high. Fixed some very inaccurate translations, big translation patch coming up later. Fixed an issue where map progression wasn't unlocking if you beat the map with a friend even though it showed you completed the map. Fixed an issue where attack speed comparison was incorrect for weapons under 1.0 attack speed. Fixed the Siren missing on Royal Gardens and Glitterhelm billboards. Fixed the Siren appearing on billboards she shouldn't be on. Fixed an issue where Skeletons can exist until the end of the universe. Fixed a spot in Glitterhelm where players could get stuck behind a crystal. Fixed it where Players could get out of Glitterhelm map's intended playable area and specific places only the huntress could reach. Fixed an issue where clients would still have the red effect for low health despite being healed back to full until they take damage again. Fixed an issue where Towers can be built in the ceiling in Glitterhelm. Fixed performance issues appearing while viewing the hero in the UI on lower quality settings. Fixed a spot where the Huntress could get outside of the Ramparts map. Fixed an issue where in multiplayer after losing a map there's an award with no text and 0 that sticks on the screen. Fixed an issue where Goblin Copters don't spawn in their correct ordered spawn sequence. Fixed an issue where a Massacre weapon was dropping from the Demon Lord on Insane difficulty that wasn’t intended. Fixed a specific crash for clients trying to use a disabled ability in Challenge mode that were disabled outside of cooldown. Fixed a specific crash for the host while a client was in the hero customization screen. Fixed a specific crash for when clients timeout from the host. Fixed a specific crash for the client if they equip gear shortly before the host returns to the tavern. Fixed multiple rare but random crashes. Known Issues If you go into Legacy first before using the Transfer Tool, you may need to restart DD:A before the Transfer Tool will work properly.

  12. We took them out for a walk and they got really dirty. It was the only solution we could think to clean them all at once.
  13. DEFENDERS, To help keep lines of communication opened and informed, we’re writing about our Legacy transfer tool that we previously talked about. Here’s an update, let’s get into it. When’s it coming? Well, we were going to do it today but wanted to test it more and make sure it was as great it could be. Then we planned on releasing it Monday, and then something happened today. Some pipes burst and flooded our entire office. This means our internal servers, internal networks, build PCs, and so much more took a nice bath. Luckily, we’re all working remote so no one was hurt. We need to get our internal servers and build machines rebuilt and set up. As a result, our patching is a little up in the air. We hope to get the machines back up and the patch out to you all next week. We’ll keep you posted when it’s coming. What is this Legacy Transfer Tool? Once this patch goes live, we’re going to be offering players the opportunity to transfer over their Legacy progression, characters, and gear over to “Play”. The goal is to do right by our community, while also having everyone in the same area to Defend. Here’s how the tool works: Load up the game. “Legacy Transfer” button is now below “Legacy” Once you select this button you’re presented with the following info: Your current “Play” progression will be deleted. Your “Legacy” progression will be copied over. This includes: Heroes, Hero Level, and Progression. Gear will be balanced to it’s 1.0 version and your upgrades will be reset. Gold from your upgrades, up to a generous cap, will be refunded to you to reapply upgrades. After confirming the transfer, you will need to restart the game. Your profile will be copied to Play. You will no longer be able to access Legacy. There are a few things to note: Legacy and Legacy Transfer will become unavailable after 7 days. You are able to still play on Legacy, and any progression or items acquired on Legacy will be included up to the moment you transfer. Any players that do not have “Play” profiles at all (i.e. Early Access players who have not played since launch, or people solely playing on Legacy) will be automatically transferred over after the 7 days. For anyone with ANY “Play” progression, you will need to opt into the transfer. This means if you have started a character and just loaded into the tavern, you will need to opt in. The ability to use Discord to manually transfer is no longer available because our office flooded. The reason that we’re going to be disabling Legacy is to accomplish two goals. The first is to have players all playing in the same space together. The second is to ensure that we do not have to balance two versions of the game, as well as worry about any potential problems that come with that kind of work/balance. What’s Next? We’re currently working on a big update coming down the road. We’ll have a bit more information out soon regarding that update. We’re giving our devs a moment to breathe post launch, and will be hitting the ground running. There’s a lot we’ve got planned, and as always, please throw any and all feedback you can into the in-game escape link (it might say bugs right now, but anything that bugs you can be submitted through there).
