    Death and Taxes Event to PTS

    A new update has been pushed to PTS and contains the following:

    NEW EVENT

    Syphon has arrived, and syphon enemies are invading paradise. Hop on PTS to play brand new Minor and Major arkfalls featuring Dark Matter and Scrappers!

    These events will still drop old loot, as new loot for this event has not been introduced yet.

    Score and health scaling has been adjusted heavily for this event to make sure high scores are easily obtainable. Please login on PTS and give this event a try for feedback! We cannot make this event perfect without your feedback.

    As always, thanks for testing, and keep in mind that these notes are not final and subject to change.

    We are asking for testing for this new event early so that we can get adequate time on PTS before release. There is no other info to release at this time. Please help test the event and let us know what you think!

    Hi Guys

    I've posted on this a few times before, but having PTS on consoles is way beyond the scope of what's reasonable.

    There are many reasons, both development and business oriented.

    One of the major ones (but not even close to the only one) is certification times. It can take upwards to two weeks just to certify a build. No changes can be made to the client during that certification period. Sometimes we update PC PTS multiple times per day. A two week update delay almost completely negates the benefit of a PTS environment in the first place. And in reality it would be longer. We need the time to fix bugs and prepare for the certification submission. This could easily add more than a month to the time we have an update ready to when it shows up on console PTS, compared to a couple hours on PC. In that month, it is likely many of the bugs on the console version of PTS would have been fixed on PC, which would cause additional confusion and complicates tracking.

    First Impressions:

    - Can only find Minor Death and Taxes, the Majors all are Hulker Hell or NFH. Maybe you could disable the old event Arkfalls?

    - Scaling: with 2 6ker it is a really hard fight at TL6! For a good equiped 1ker the TL4 is nearly impossible to manage. At least with only 2 testers. For a proper testing we need more testers. Maybe a Test Schedule could help again?

    - The Minors are to fast over. The Wave spawn is the problem. You kill ~4 Enemys and the next wave spawn you kill the next ~4 Enemys and the next wave spawn. If you have killed one-third of the Enemys you're at Wave 5. And the Minor is over. Suggestion: Put a short break between the Wave spawns. Or let the next Wave wait until the previous is completly cleared.


    I like the diversity of DM, Scrappers and Shrill. They work good together, when you try to avoid a DM Sniper a Shrill or Bullwark will kill you.
    But, its not really new, it feels like the NVF Arkfalls. It would be cool when we could have a Boss at the Major. Maybe a Shrill-Monolith or something (big).

    Thanks for the feedback! I have disabled all other arkfalls for the time being. Appreciate you pointing that out. You should be able to get a major to spin up now.
