+1 to this. NWI should put out a devblog if an update is taking longer than expected. The best I could find was a reply from a dev in the Steam forums:
“Last patch was December 21st Patience. Every patch needs a full testing and QA process.”
But don’t worry, they are working on the game, and will hopefully release a patch this week. There’s also an article from a month ago about their future plans that you can read here.
I feel like NWI’s communication skills have deteriorated ever since they began working on the engine update. Remember when we got an update every Thursday? If you can’t accomplish what you want in a week, fine. But some communication on roughly when we’ll get an update and what to expect from it would be nice.
If you haven’t read this, I would highly recommend it. They do give some idea of their plans, but nothing on when we’ll see an update or what we’ll get in the next update or two.
@aslan14 I don’t know why you feel a need to be so obnoxious about this. For the past several days I’ve been seeing nothing but you and your self-righteous posts. What you’re complaining about is literally people just having fun. While you may not enjoy it, saying edgy and racist things is funny to some people. If it bothers you, that’s fine, just mute them. It’s really not that hard.
But just keep doing what you’re doing. That is, keep arguing as if you are morally right. If someone disagrees with you, just scream “FAKE NEWS”, or label them as apologists for hate. Honestly, I really shouldn’t even be this constructive, seeing how you will probably want to act like I’m not even worth your time arguing with, like how you responded to other people.
@dtjonesie You are right. Day of Infamy had a similar mechanic where after a certain number of kills for a gun you got a nicer skin for it, and after so many headshots you got a cloth wrap around it. It’s a far better system as it feels far less grindy and as you said, much more rewarding. While I like that you can
Customize your character, it does feel that NWI got lazy with implementing it. I was hoping during the beta that we would get something better than receiving 100 credits after every level up which you can spend on cosmetics, but no, we didn’t. I suspect that the credits system is because NWI initially wanted to give players the option to buy them with real money, but since they decided against that, I think we could get something a little better. Maybe it could go a little something like this: You unlock each cosmetic item by achieving a certain amount of whatevers. Those whatevers include:
-kills with a technical
And then, I don’t know, the different colors could be unlocked through leveling up or achieving even more of those whatevers. I don’t really feel like coming up with anything more.
