Performance enhancements and monitoring.
With Update 7.4 we have added new tech to the game that we believe will address a number of performance related issues players are currently reporting. Please be aware that this tech will be turned off at launch and will be enabled slowly over time as we check and verify this tech works as expected and intended. We will be carefully monitoring the results and making adjustments and changes as needed. This means any changes or improvements may not be immediately apparent with the release of Update 7.4.
- New rewards can now be found during the Treasure Hunt!
- Bug fixes.
- New rewards are available for the Fall Festival.
- Addressed a number of minor issues with the festival.
So what does this mean for us the players? I’m not entirely sure. While it’s good to see that Turbine is making a stride to fix performance issue, but it’s interesting to see that they’re going to be gradually implementing the fixes rather than turning it on full force from the start. But being cautious is a good thing, and ultimately I’d rather see Turbine take their time to make sure that the tech works rather than turning it on and having it be a disastrous event. Also, the changes to the Treasure Hunt make me wonder if we’ll be seeing another one of those events pop up soon.
