    The question is not how fast they fix it, The question is why the creators are silent. Have an opinion on the disputable situation.

    Their silence indicates that they allow "terrorism" in the game. Who does not like leaving, and who remains being the same as everyone else

    with all the money they have earned from all these wallet warriors, they should hire some new blood and increase their team. hopefully someone competent.

    yup, my thoughts exactly.
    whenever I hear another guy saying "but but but they are a small team" -> so why not hire more if you are short, you are making money and you will be making more if you get this game right
    I've been playing for ~2 months and spent easily £100, I'm a low spender compared to others
    For a little android game that's a lot of money but I don't mind spending for things that are fun. The frustration comes when you feel the developer is taking the p/ss, that's when I start thinking "cut my losses and move on?" , "stop spending?"
    The irony is that nobody wins, they get flamed, probably get annoyed and keep silent/ignore forums, players quit, game gets a bad name, they make less money - nobody wins.
    Players can act like spoiled brats (I admit to it) but bad handling from the devs will make things worst - not better.
    Listening and responding to players, giving some reasoning/explanation and if needed giving in a bit to the requests, you know a little "give and take" - would go a long way.
    I see very little of that here.

    I wouldn't mind monthly updates, they can take 6 months and I wouldn't care less. But if the update has A HUGE BUG that they admit, hell they even made a sticky thread about it in the announcement: https://forum.battlebay.net/forums/announcements.2/ , it has to be fixed ASAP. As in hours or days, not weeks.

    In an IT company, they should at least QC the application/game before pushing it to production and if there were some bug, they should be able to rollback to the previous version.

    Unfortunately this is not our bug, it is a "security feature" in Unity, the engine we are using. This means we can not fix it by ourself but we can only wait, just like you. https://forum.unity3d.com/threads/5-6-1p2-breaks-touch-input.474030/

    All updates are being tested before launching them. However unfortunately it's impossible to cover all possible combinations in the testing. In this case none of testers just happened to use any screen overlay programs so this was not detected.

    ty for the explanation Miika
    until they patch Unity the players affected should disable/remove screen overlay apps right? that should fix it short term

    btw, do you guys have any thoughts/plans to tackle speed hackers? I see them quite often these days, same for my guildies, hopefully reporting them gets them banned for good (no temp ban)

    Thank you for the information, this is what I'm looking for, at least an explanation on the bug not a work around. You should probably stick it in the other thread.

    Sorry if this has been suggested already, if not I think there would be a better way of implementing of this update in particular.

    1) Weapon damage should 'wear' the shield down until it's depleted - No stun debuff

    However,

    2) Tesla Bolt could apply a Tesla Overload - Too much electricity in the ships system overloads the shield generators - which is what applies the stun and depletes the shield negating any damage requirement on the shield. I think this would be a better concept for this and plays more to Dr. Buzzkill's nature.

    There is no sense in hoping. Creators are not so smart to listen to someone else's opinion.
    They reduced speed and the health of the speeders and added a speeder mk4 to a fair fight with defenders and shooters of the level of mk5-6
    So the only right decision is to leave the game and wait for change.

    When leaving, please close the doors and remember your umbrella.
    You will need one, the rain will not stop because you get wet and complain about it!

    Keep in mind that the various modifications of the speeder also influence the enforcer (OB, Tesla Shield, Sniper, ...), but that the enforcer is definitely not as competitf as the speeder.
    The enforcer suffers terribly from the changes of speeder ...
    The gap between Enforcer and Speeder barely compensates from the MK6, must wait for level 41 ... Either many months of play...
    When will we see a buff of enforcer ?

    Time for a final 'looking back' review of this patch. I play fixer (would love to play other boats as well, but that is not really how the game is designed, so stuck in green for now).

    The positive:
    Repair Bolt (after the obviously required rebalance) is a great new item. Its fun to play with and the health VS utility talent choices are actual decisions which is cool.

    The negative:
    The Repair Pulse selfheal slaugther is severely limiting how fun it is to play fixer. To a point where my enjoyment of the game is in a rapid downward spiral. Prepatch I could activate my overboost and go on offensive when required, now Im stuck hiding in the back. Always passive, always hiding, always defensive.

    The enforced defensive gameplay is not fun for me, and I sure miss when Fixers had more strategic (viable) options.

    The sad part - At no point was Fixers dominating endgame play. 4-5 Fixers in the top 50 did not warrent such a crippling change.

    I completely agree the repair pulse should heal us at 100% of what it heals other players. It makes it super hard to use the bolt and the pulse because it takes so long to heal yourself, and even if you use a repair Box it hurts the team because you are having to use more boxes to heal yourself instead of your teammates.
