First off, skinboxes were around where even those " free players" could find them and either make money with the skins or boxes in trade. Then they changed that to a pay for play system where if you wanted the super nice skins those boxes were now costing real money. Now while I will pay for my server, I wont spent real money on a skinbox  where I have to open 10 or more to get a rarer skin. Unlike the kids that play and spend holiday money, many adults kinda drifted off to games that you earned skins. Real life prevailed, kids need stuff for school, car repairs... life. Then there is a whole other group that we watched leave over issues of things needing fixed. Their complaints are everywhere I don't need to go into where and not just on here. Now we have another group being pushed off in favor of Survival, BR, and PVP. They will leave before they cross over and those of us who tried were kicked in the teeth for trying by the very people "wanting" players on those modes.  

This is something Im talking with another player lke yourself privately.... There is a trend and it will happen here, where "cooperative zones" (think of a ven diagram, like the beta server, one side pvp, other PVE) where they overlap. If you are NOT in a GROUP, you cannot be killed or kill others.. a zone meant for "cooperative play only".. THIS WILL HAPPEN (imagine clans being limited to controlling only "cooperative zones", instead of a whole pvp map, then dissolve and nobody ever challenge them).. the point is to minimize servers and collapsing players by pushing all the different games play types into ONE GAMEPLAY MAP SERVER.... you will be able to walk into each different gamplay mode instead of joining/leaving servers. I would think they would be smart to leave PVE ONLY servers, to  TUTORIAL  & PRIVATE RENT SERVERS, everyone will be fine. but free to play OPEN WORLD MODES will be smashed into ONE PLACE...and when it does, you will need to make a choice (if they apply this to current maps, you lose access to parts of the map  you otherwise would normally patrol. zombie contracts & travel mission then force you to cross over into PVP, you don't have to engage, but it will force you to be aware of your surroundings & other players..aka "head on a swivel.")... to accept this new adaptation, or find a new game to play....that would suck, because it sounds like you're a fun player.....

Good patch, good ideas but you should really address the elephant in the room, which is the unfair advantage laggy players have over players who don't lag

How do laggy players have the advantage. When I have lagged (for whatever reason) I certainly had NO advantage. I lagged and zombies that were far away surged, I was frozen in place, and when it all stopped lagging I was dead. This bu No means is an advantage.

Dear Community,

 

Hopefully this patch comes a bit sooner than expected. We have worked hard for this and Fred even made a video previewing some of the stuff that's coming in Patch 2.35. We are overall very happy with the end result and definitively aim to keep this going. Please let us know as much further feedback as possible so that we can use that for future patches! Now, before we jump into the patch notes we highly recommend to check out the dev blog video about this patch:

 

Now, Let's jump into the patch notes.

 

Base Building BETA Servers:

As some of you might have heared or seen already is that we have been working on a base building system. This is something we plan on releasing very soon in New Z and at this moment we are mostly going to focus on stress testing and gathering final feedback from players. To allow us to do this we have set up so called "Base Building BETA Servers" where any player can join and build. There is a load-out that includes all the building materials and to spice it up a little players have weapons to kill each other with. Overall these servers are completely pointless as stats don't count.

Note: these BETA servers will be in the premium servers section of Open World.

 

Overall Updates:

GENERAL:

  • The Viking themed menu music has been disabled. The normal original menu music is now back.
  • Removed all further Viking related content from the game. Items and skins remain and players can keep those for ever but content such as the secret spots on the maps have been removed.
  • Added more reputation ranks to the game:
    • For the bad side:
      • -2.250.000 - Maniac
      • -2.500.000 - Arsonist
      • -2.750.000 - Bloodthirsty
      • -3.000.000 - Butcher
      • -3.250.000 - Torturer
      • -3.500.000 - Slaughterer
      • -3.750.000 - Executor
      • -4.000.000 - Exterminator
      • -4.250.000 - Kingslayer
      • -4.500.000 - Warbringer
      • -4.750.000 - Man o' War
      • -5.000.000 - Tyrant
    • For the good side:
      • 1.250.000 - Apostle
      • 1.500.000 - Clergyman
      • 1.750.000 - Cleric
      • 2.000.000 - Zealot
      • 2.250.000 - Templar
      • 2.500.000 - Archpaladin
      • 2.750.000 - Knight Watcher

      • 3.250.000 - Emir
      • 3.500.000 - Vizier
      • 3.750.000 - Sheikh
      • 4.000.000 - Lord
      • 4.250.000 - Duke
      • 4.500.000 - Prince Heir
      • 4.750.000 - Emperor
      • 5.000.000 - Inquisitor
  • Fixed a melee animation bug.
  • Fixed a bug causing the bus system cool down not to show on the interact UI some times.
  • Fixed a bug causing medical items to not "consume" sometimes and just disappear.
  • Riot shields and other barricades / building objects now use the correct material settings. This means that when shooting a wooden barricade you will hear wooden impact sounds and when shooting a metal object you will hear metal sounds.

VEHICLES:

  • Player model is now visible again in the Buggy.
  • Player model is now visible again in the Police Dragster.
  • Player model is now visible again in the Sheriff Dragster.

CLAN TERRITORIES:

The clan territory system has gotten a major rework. We have changed and added a lot of features to the system. The following is changed / added:

  • We have buffed the shield clan members get when being inside a claimed area from 10 to 20%. Once again we'd like to make clear that this shield does not apply to head shot damage.
  • Clan contest points (the flags) now have health. This varies between 5.000 and 10.000 health points. The health needs to be taken down by damaging the contest point. Once the health reaches 0 contesting can start. Contest points can regenerate back to their full health over time and will if no contests or damages the point for some time.
  • Clan contest points now have their own perks. Each point is unique and can have a different perk. Perks are also indicated on the minimap. The following perks have been added:
    • Decreased zombie trigger radius.
    • Experience boost.
    • Game dollar boost.
    • Increased effectiveness of healing items.
    • Less revive time if a clan member died inside the clan territory.
    • Decreased damage from zombies.
    • The ability to regenerate health over time.
    • Decreased pick-up timer for items.
    • More health on placed shields and barricades.
    • Advanced movements: high jump and a bit faster movement.
    • Decreased crafting time. (only for Survival)
      Please keep in mind that these perks only apply to clan members of the clan that has the clan point contested.
      Please keep in mind that each clan contest point only has one of the mentioned perks.
  • We have also added a visual indicator for the clan territory in the minimap. You can see the territory of that point when hovering on the point in the in-game minimap. (Also the active perk shows in the minimap as mentioned before.)
  • Added a respawn option for clan members to respawn in the clan territory their clan owns. If you die, and you are in a clan that owns a clan point in the map, you'll have the option to spawn there.
  • Added a system that allows players to teleport / travel between clan contest points. This is only for Open World. If a clan owns two contest points clan members can go to one of them, hold e, and select what other contest point they'd like to travel to. There is a five minute cool down on this.

It's a machine gun and has base stats similar to those of the Honey Badger. It's not silenced and has custom brand new shooting sounds.

Survival Updates:

GENERAL:

  • Clan territory system rework is live in Survival. (Just a reminder) However, the Survival variant has some features disabled.
  • Vehicle spawns have been enabled again in this game-mode in the Official Servers.
  • Item load-outs are now enabled in Survival. Players can use the load-out feature now just like as in Open World.
  • Added a 20 XP reward for killing players.
  • Players can no longer get infected by zombies when they still have spawn protection.
  • Added a one minute cool down for locker usage. This is only on Official servers and done to prevent the "locker camping" some players do.
  • Increased the "server hop" cool down from 2 to 6 hours to prevent players from ghosting.

LOOT:

  • The Thompson MK-2 is now released in Survival. This weapon has a relative rare chance but is not too rare. It can be found at any military location and also drops from normal and alien super zombies.

COLORADO V2 (Survival):

  • Max vehicle spawns are limited to 6 each time means it will only spawn this amount at the same time.
  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.

COLORADO V1 (Survival):

  • Fixed the glitched ambient sound in Campos City near the 5-story.
  • Added more ladders to buildings and the bridge in Campos City.
  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.
  • Max vehicle spawns are limited to 5 each time means it will only spawn this amount at the same time.
  • Removed the hills between Rocky Ford and the Safe Zone. Now this area is a bit flatter.
  • Lowered the volume of the global ambient sound.

 

Open World Updates:

GENERAL:

  • Clan territory system rework is live in Open World. (Just a reminder)

LOOT:

  • The Thompson MK-2 is now released in Open World. This weapon has a relative rare chance but is not too rare. It can be found at any military location and also drops from normal and alien super zombies. This weapon is also inside the Epic Tactical Weapon Crate.

COLORADO V2 (Open World):

  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.

COLORADO V1 (Open World):

  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.

 

Battle Royale Updates:

GENERAL:

  • The revive system has been added. When players die, if playing in a group, their team members have the option to revive the dead team mate. This revive "hold e" timer is relatively long so can't be done in a quick fight. Players would also have to completely stand still while reviving. Further information is shown in the dev blog #7 video.

 

Competitive Updates:

GENERAL:

  • The game-dollar reward players get in the end of a Competitive game is now also based on the amount of kills you got during that game. Just like how it is in the Battle Royale game-mode as well.
  • Competitive characters now have the rank / leaderboards skins enabled. This means if you are for example rank 1 wins on the Competitive leaderboard, you will have the rank 1 skin option in Competitive games.
  • Fixed a bug causing the shooting sound to keep playing when the Competitive match ended.
  • Every player in Competitive now has a full skill tree on default.
  • Fixed a crash related to the Competitive server.

 

 

Estimated patch size: 150-200 mb.

Patch ETA: Patch is expected to roll out some where today. We are still testing and fixing some minor stuff.

Estimated downtime: Downtime will be as little as possible but expect around 30 minutes.

Pre-patch notes might be changed if we need to fix / add something.

Survival Updates:

GENERAL:

  • Clan territory system rework is live in Survival. (Just a reminder) However, the Survival variant has some features disabled.
  • Vehicle spawns have been enabled again in this game-mode in the Official Servers.
  • Item load-outs are now enabled in Survival. Players can use the load-out feature now just like as in Open World.
  • Added a 20 XP reward for killing players.
  • Players can no longer get infected by zombies when they still have spawn protection.
  • Added a one minute cool down for locker usage. This is only on Official servers and done to prevent the "locker camping" some players do.
  • Increased the "server hop" cool down from 2 to 6 hours to prevent players from ghosting.

LOOT:

  • The Thompson MK-2 is now released in Survival. This weapon has a relative rare chance but is not too rare. It can be found at any military location and also drops from normal and alien super zombies.

COLORADO V2 (Survival):

  • Max vehicle spawns are limited to 6 each time means it will only spawn this amount at the same time.
  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.

COLORADO V1 (Survival):

  • Fixed the glitched ambient sound in Campos City near the 5-story.
  • Added more ladders to buildings and the bridge in Campos City.
  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.
  • Max vehicle spawns are limited to 5 each time means it will only spawn this amount at the same time.
  • Removed the hills between Rocky Ford and the Safe Zone. Now this area is a bit flatter.
  • Lowered the volume of the global ambient sound.

 

Open World Updates:

GENERAL:

  • Clan territory system rework is live in Open World. (Just a reminder)

LOOT:

  • The Thompson MK-2 is now released in Open World. This weapon has a relative rare chance but is not too rare. It can be found at any military location and also drops from normal and alien super zombies. This weapon is also inside the Epic Tactical Weapon Crate.

COLORADO V2 (Open World):

  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.

COLORADO V1 (Open World):

  • Added more Clan-Territories all over the world.

 

Battle Royale Updates:

GENERAL:

  • The revive system has been added. When players die, if playing in a group, their team members have the option to revive the dead team mate. This revive "hold e" timer is relatively long so can't be done in a quick fight. Players would also have to completely stand still while reviving. Further information is shown in the dev blog #7 video.

 

Competitive Updates:

GENERAL:

  • The game-dollar reward players get in the end of a Competitive game is now also based on the amount of kills you got during that game. Just like how it is in the Battle Royale game-mode as well.
  • Competitive characters now have the rank / leaderboards skins enabled. This means if you are for example rank 1 wins on the Competitive leaderboard, you will have the rank 1 skin option in Competitive games.
  • Fixed a bug causing the shooting sound to keep playing when the Competitive match ended.
  • Every player in Competitive now has a full skill tree on default.
  • Fixed a crash related to the Competitive server.

 

 

Estimated patch size: 150-200 mb.

Patch ETA: Patch is expected to roll out some where today. We are still testing and fixing some minor stuff.

Estimated downtime: Downtime will be as little as possible but expect around 30 minutes.

Pre-patch notes might be changed if we need to fix / add something.

Dear Community,

 

Hopefully this patch comes a bit sooner than expected. We have worked hard for this and Fred even made a video previewing some of the stuff that's coming in Patch 2.35. We are overall very happy with the end result and definitively aim to keep this going. Please let us know as much further feedback as possible so that we can use that for future patches! Now, before we jump into the patch notes we highly recommend to check out the dev blog video about this patch:

 

Now, Let's jump into the patch notes.

 

Base Building BETA Servers:

As some of you might have heared or seen already is that we have been working on a base building system. This is something we plan on releasing very soon in New Z and at this moment we are mostly going to focus on stress testing and gathering final feedback from players. To allow us to do this we have set up so called "Base Building BETA Servers" where any player can join and build. There is a load-out that includes all the building materials and to spice it up a little players have weapons to kill each other with. Overall these servers are completely pointless as stats don't count.

Note: these BETA servers will be in the premium servers section of Open World.

 

Overall Updates:

GENERAL:

  • The Viking themed menu music has been disabled. The normal original menu music is now back.
  • Removed all further Viking related content from the game. Items and skins remain and players can keep those for ever but content such as the secret spots on the maps have been removed.

      • -4.500.000 - Warbringer
      • -4.750.000 - Man o' War
      • -5.000.000 - Tyrant
    • For the good side:
      • 1.250.000 - Apostle
      • 1.500.000 - Clergyman
      • 1.750.000 - Cleric

  • Fixed a melee animation bug.
  • Fixed a bug causing the bus system cool down not to show on the interact UI some times.
  • Fixed a bug causing medical items to not "consume" sometimes and just disappear.
  • Riot shields and other barricades / building objects now use the correct material settings. This means that when shooting a wooden barricade you will hear wooden impact sounds and when shooting a metal object you will hear metal sounds.

VEHICLES:

  • Player model is now visible again in the Buggy.
  • Player model is now visible again in the Police Dragster.
  • Player model is now visible again in the Sheriff Dragster.

CLAN TERRITORIES:

The clan territory system has gotten a major rework. We have changed and added a lot of features to the system. The following is changed / added:

  • We have buffed the shield clan members get when being inside a claimed area from 10 to 20%. Once again we'd like to make clear that this shield does not apply to head shot damage.
  • Clan contest points (the flags) now have health. This varies between 5.000 and 10.000 health points. The health needs to be taken down by damaging the contest point. Once the health reaches 0 contesting can start. Contest points can regenerate back to their full health over time and will if no contests or damages the point for some time.
  • Clan contest points now have their own perks. Each point is unique and can have a different perk. Perks are also indicated on the minimap. The following perks have been added:
    • Decreased zombie trigger radius.
    • Experience boost.
    • Game dollar boost.
    • Increased effectiveness of healing items.
    • Less revive time if a clan member died inside the clan territory.
    • Decreased damage from zombies.
    • The ability to regenerate health over time.
    • Decreased pick-up timer for items.
    • More health on placed shields and barricades.
    • Advanced movements: high jump and a bit faster movement.
    • Decreased crafting time. (only for Survival)
      Please keep in mind that these perks only apply to clan members of the clan that has the clan point contested.
      Please keep in mind that each clan contest point only has one of the mentioned perks.
  • We have also added a visual indicator for the clan territory in the minimap. You can see the territory of that point when hovering on the point in the in-game minimap. (Also the active perk shows in the minimap as mentioned before.)
  • Added a respawn option for clan members to respawn in the clan territory their clan owns. If you die, and you are in a clan that owns a clan point in the map, you'll have the option to spawn there.
  • Added a system that allows players to teleport / travel between clan contest points. This is only for Open World. If a clan owns two contest points clan members can go to one of them, hold e, and select what other contest point they'd like to travel to. There is a five minute cool down on this.

CHARACTERS:

 

Item & Skin Updates:

FIXES:

  • Fixed the Custom Guerilla Fallen Angel skin. Removed the red "dots" from the mesh. This to make it look like it originally looked before the rig update.
  • Fixed the material settings for the Autumn 2018 Skinbox. It was using the incorrect bump and specular map textures.
  • Fixed the material settings for the Fun Edition Skinbox. It was using the incorrect bump and specular map textures. Also improved the diffuse texture.'
  • Fixed the iron sight of the AK-15. The original default iron sight is now properly aligned and the weapon now shoots correctly where you aim.

ADDITIONS:

  • Added a new sub machine gun called: "Thompson MK-2". This weapon is a modernized variant of the original "Thompson" weapon. It's a machine gun and has base stats similar to those of the Honey Badger. It's not silenced and has custom brand new shooting sounds. We will explain in each separate game-mode update where / if the weapon is released in that game-mode. Here is a preview of the icon:
