What an outstanding week we've all had! It's been awesome watching you all giving that pesky Plague Doctor a run for his money (& loot!), seeing how your islands are progressing and having a sneak peek at some of the awesome and unique builds you're making! We have been busy working on more updates, adjustments and additions for you all to enjoy. Let's get to it!
We've been watching how much you're now enjoying the Bandit King, Elites, and, of course, that elusive Gold Ore Node- you're all smashing it outta the park! Now, we hinted (heavily!) about Science coming and now its beginning to reveal itself!
We're leaping into Spring, and CosmicSky is blossoming as beautifully as the flowers outside. Luckily for you guys, our wonderful developer has been looking at the flowers through the window whilst working hard on this week's update. So without further ado...
WOW! Outposts have proven to be an absolute hit with you all. Yet again, it's been another busy week behind the scenes at Cosmic Sky and we're delighted to bring you even more content! Our offerings this week should be ticking a lot of boxes for you all!
Battle Royale has been an overwhelming success with you all! It is still in beta so we're constantly looking at ways that we can improve it for you all. Due to concerns from the community, we're looking at whether dual wield should be completely removed from Battle Royale.
Here's what you need to know about dual wield:
Dual wield is available as a tier 5 /skill perk
Dual wield is available as a Stone /outpost perk
When you have dual wield it provides you with increased damage
If dual wield was to be removed ALL ways that you could obtain it would be disabled
So over to you:
Should dual wield be DISABLED in Battle Royale?
As you know, Battle Royale is solo content. If dual wield was to be removed it would provide a fairer playing field for all...
You all have absolutely LOVED the new Battle Royale; but we hear you when you say you want more PvP, more ways to help your island, more ways to involve your Alliance- more content! This weeks' update does all that, and more! Let's stoke the engine and get the hype train going, it's gonna be a good ride for sure ...
We're already a whole MONTH into the release of CosmicSky - it doesn't seem possible! Things are still as busy as ever for you guys with all your amazing islands, grinders, casinos and events. Don't worry, we're not slacking either and have, as always, been listening to the community. So it's time to grab a brew and settle in to read what we've got in store for you this week and the month to date...
Woah, what a week it's been- to say we've been busy would be an understatement. If you read carefully enough last week you'd have noticed that I gave a little leak for this weeks update, and trust me when I say that it should knock your socks off! So, without further ado, onto the main event!
So last week we put the decision in your hands and asked the community as a whole if Dual Wield perks should be completely removed from Battle Royale.
Here are the results:
The majority has spoken and it was a complete landslide with 79.2% of people voting to remove!
So, as of Tuesday's daily reboot, dual wield will be entirely removed from Battle Royale.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. Keep an eye out on the What Say You section of the forums for any more polls in the upcoming weeks. We love hearing what you guys are saying, and want to make sure that we're involving you in decisions like this.
NOTE: The /skill dual wield perk and the /outpost dual wield perk have been removed from Battle Royale. You may still be able to put other items in your offhand - but this will have no advantage in combat situations.
