Known Issue Tracker

NOTICE: This page is currently undergoing maintenance and may be showing outdated data. We hope to have these issues resolved soon - thanks for your patience! 

As a temporary measure, the first table on this page is being manually updated with Known Issues that our team is currently tracking. Due to the table being manually updated, the Status column has been adjusted to only display if a bug is in the progress of being fixed (In Progress) or if it has already been fixed (Solved)

The table may not be updated quite as frequently, but we will do our best to list issues that our team is currently aware of and working to fix, and to flag them as they are resolved.

This page lists issues we’re currently working on or have recently fixed. If you encounter a bug that isn’t on this list, please submit an in-game bug report so we can get to work on fixing it!

This list isn’t meant to cover every single bug in the game. For the sake of keeping things concise, we’re intentionally leaving out anything that could be used as an exploit and minor issues unlikely to impact most players.

You can expect updates here at least once a week. This page was last updated on 25th February, 2020.

Notes on the Status column:

  • “Investigating” means we are aware of the issue, but haven’t yet found a fix for it.
  • “Verifying” means we think we have a fix and are testing it to make sure it works.
  • “Final Testing” means we’re pretty sure our fix will work and are doing the last phase of testing before it’s ready to roll out.  This status does not guarantee that the bug will be fixed in the next patch. If a bug fix fails final testing, we may have to push it back to a later date.
  • “NMI” means we need more information on this issue. If you’re experiencing this issue, you can help us out by clicking the link and posting in our official forums or by submitting an in-game bug report.
