  2. I want to buy a fast fire macro and in recoil, like other survival players, how much does it cost?
  3. SUMMARY: This is a small patch with fixes we have ready while we remove the Xmas event material from the maps. Added an area around the flag to prevent people from locking Clan Territory spawns. Fixed chat and VOIP issues. You can no longer talk while dead and you can now mute players normally Added a sound to the gun when you're low on ammo. Fixed some of the new building models which caused people to be able to walk through. You can now ping your teammates while dead. Fixed body parts going through armors on female characters. Full Patch Notes: GENERAL CHANGES USER INTERFACES AND MENUS: Added Oceania Private Servers GENERAL FIXES & CHANGES: Fixed a bug with the double click function and grenades. Fixed an issue causing the Slicer Zombie to spawn everywhere. Fixed an issue that prevented people from muting others on VOIP You can no longer talk while dead. You can now ping your teammates while dead. Added a zone around the Clan Territory flags that prevents shields from being placed. This will prevent players from being "locked in". Fixed a small bug with the chat when you are talking to a friend and he joins the servers. Added a new "low ammo" sound feedback. Your gun will have a slightly different sound when you are low on ammo. (This setting is disabled by default and can enabled in the Options Menu). Fixed a bug where you could see through the wall in the "Big Market". Fixed the collision of the General Store Windows. This will prevent people from jumping through. Fixed a collision of the Mechanic. This will prevent people going through walls. ITEM CHANGES ADDITIONS & CHANGES: Changed the TPS model of the "crate" for the Snow Man Barricade.

Fixed a bug on the entrance of the Fire Station building where players could see through. Fixed a hole on the wall in the Fire Station building. LOOT: Right now, we believe our loot table is really good. We will make tweaks here and there, but not major changes will come to it, unless feedback demands it.

  4. It's that time of the year! The time not only to celebrate your team, but also to prove your skills in the battlefield! In mid-February we will be starting the Supercup 2021 and we will bring back the classic and must-see moments from past editions to all of you around the world! Rules will be coming soon, so start gathering your teams and preparing yourselves for the battle of the year! We will be using our traditional Tournament Map for the battles! Teams will battle in a group stage, then will move on to a knockout stages. Matches will have 3 complete rounds during the group stages (not Best of 3), Best of 3 and 5 during the knockout stages (depending the number of teams signing up) and best of 7 rounds on the finals! There will be prizes for the group stage final standings, then for the third place, runner-ups and champions! Rules will be our standard tournament rules, with small tweaks and clearer information. More information on this soon. More information next week with the Applications opening, so don't miss out!
  5. When the guns were at their most powerful (a couple of patches back), 95% of the feedback was that they were too strong.
  6. Hello, Can you please contact us at [email protected] using the email registered on the account?
  7. So Kruger .22s should 1-shot to the head?
  8. Funny you say we're a copy of a game when this game has been around for longer...
  9. Guns naturally have spread and recoil. That is part of any shooting game. It can't be different here.
  10. You can still loot items under the tree. There will be some crates that are locked under the trees with ONE item and only on Official Servers. The items will be spawning normally like they have always under the trees.
  11. SUMMARY: Made changes for easier navigation on the in-game inventory, which can be disabled through the options menu. Added Holiday music to the menu. Major server crashes have been fixed. Changed the VOIP system to a more reliable one. Fixed a bug with a dead body hit reg. Added FPS Cap option. Added the option for server owners to add Winter Mode to their private servers. Reworked the look of the Airdrop after it's been open. That way you will know if the Airdrop has been opened already. Made more tweaks to weapons. Lowered overall Spread on them, but also lowered the reduction from attachments. That way they will feel the same way as they currently do with full attachments, but are improved overall with no attachments. Buffed Karambit. Nerfed Saiga. Fixed some physics issues on the maps. Added "Overgrowth" back to buildings in Survival. Full Patch Notes: GENERAL CHANGES USER INTERFACES AND MENUS: Added a key-bind to drop the item currently selected from the in-game inventory. Added a new Tutorial image to explain the in-game HUD. You can access it by pressing on the icon ? or by pressing F1. Fixed some localization in some languages. Fixed a few UI bugs in Battle Royale. Added a new Holiday song to the menu. You can toggle it on the Options Menu. Menu music does not play if you are tabbed out of the game. GENERAL FIXES & CHANGES: Fixed several crashes both Server and Client-sided. Added an FPS Cap option to the settings. Changed the VOIP system from TeamSpeak to Vivox. Vivox is a much more reliable and modern system. For most of you, you won't feel much of a difference, but disconnecting randomly from VOIP will be greatly decreased. Double-clicking in the inventory will now use/equip/attach an item (you can disable that option from the Options Menu) Added an option to add "Winter Mode" to your private servers. Fixed a bug that caused the Slicer Icon to appear randomly on the map multiple times. Fixed a bug related to dead body hit reg. Fixed placing a shield on dead bodies. Fixed an issue with eating food that could remove your shield. Fixed an issue with Competitive Matches not starting in Oceania ITEM CHANGES ADDITIONS & CHANGES: Reworked the Airdrop Icons. Added a new model to show the Airdrop has already been open. That way you will be able to see if it's been open or not from afar. Added a few new Airdrop types. More information soon. Reworked the icon for a few items: AR Barrel Sniper Barrel AR Stock Sniper Stock Snow Man Barricade Changed the damage from the Karambit. Player Damage: From 50 to 80. Zombie Damage: From 80 to 105 Decreased the spread of guns globally. This means all weapons have had their spread reduced slightly so they can be used well without attachments. Decreased the spread reduction on all attachments. This means at the end, with full attachments, you will have the guns as good as they currently are, but the difference from no attachments to full attachments will be lower. Decreased the damage and decay (distance to start having a reduction in damage) of the Saiga Damage from 27 to 25. Decay from 5 to 4. Increased the damage of the grenade on Zombies. From 140 to 160. Changed the cooldown of the Wood Shields in Arcade back to what it was. SKINS & SKINBOXES: Fixed the Scope on the Hynx v2 OTS-SVU. Fixed the material files for the M4 Apocalypse. ARCADE GENERAL Loot: Improved the respawn timer of the crates in the secret spots. MAPS Colorado: Fixed a physics model at the airport where you were able to go through a wall. SURVIVAL FIXES & CHANGES You can no longer deal damage to Group Members in Survival. Unfortunately, this was being heavily abused against new players. LOOT: Loot will continue being tweaked as we get general feedback. These changes do not require game patches to go live and we will keep you posted on those on the official Discord. MAPS: OREGON Fixed some misplaced staircases in Rio. Improved some terrain near the Airport. Increased food spawns overall. Added more vehicle spawns and increased the spawn chances. COLORADO V1 Fixed the missing helicopter crash icon at Whitestone mountain. Decreased the sound volume of the global ambient sound. We are adding back the "Overgrowth" on buildings. This was something classic in I:SS and people voted to have it back. This is still a work in progress and we will continue adding to other buildings. Some buildings are also closed again but don't worry, it's not done yet and we might open some again such as the restaurant. Added some more trees around Clearview to protect players who are just spawning in. CHRISTMAS EVENT More information on this year's Christmas Event VERY soon!!! Estimated patch size: 300MB Estimated downtime: 2 hours Estimated Patch time: 16.12.2020 10:00AM CET Pre-patch notes might be changed if we need to fix/add something.

      ive been playing this game for 5+ yrs, i was #7 in the all-time time played in survival mode, i worked long and hard for the items i had in my gi and i kept them to a moderate level (50). i had several very rare items that i earned and worked for. when you did the wipe you stole the last 5+ yrs  of me playing this game away from me. and because of the wipe that you seem to be so proud of, your goal to entice new and returning players to the game has failed, at least from me. i will not be returning, i will not be speaking well of this game and am going as far as not to even call it by its name because it is no longer worthy of my respect in that manner. in fact i hope this game tanks so fast it leaves your heads spinning.
