    BtZ Feedback Wanted: 03/21/2018

    I understand that companies have budgets as well as other projects to work on. The issue is they don't really reach out to the community and inform us. They don't actively check forums at all, you would have to flood their media for 2 weeks just to get a single message through and then you are lucky if you get a decent response. That's how we came to the 4/5 updated. Flooded their twitter media until it was pushed up the ladder. It takes less than 30 minutes to change values and test it a little bit. Sometimes they gotta add new code but that is rare as of lately and the most extensive task would be modifying the animations, which is not going to happen often. Most of the DROPs were less than satisfactory as well. Sure it is free content and that's nice, but why ask the community what we want when they don't plan to deliver what we want since they already had the next 5 drops made already? It doesn't't clarify the standing still tackle because it is an exploit. It works similar to the old instant tackle. The mechanic is not intended to be there but it is a very useful mechanic for punishing those who want to wait until you are locked in an animation which you cannot escape, just to dfa you or use some other combo that will take you down to 60 health or lower and force you to flee and repeat the process. If a mechanic is not intended, why would a game teach you to exploit it's mechanics? That makes no sense. Hence why you have to find experienced players who know the exploit and are willing to explain it since there aren't tutorials (because we don't want it to get patched since it is a necessary mechanic). We would talk about it more if we knew it wouldn't get removed asap. We saw what happened with instant tackle, it was an exploit devs didn't intend to be a thing and it was removed once it gained publicity. Instead of listening to the veteran players of the PvP of this game, they justified their update with what the new, clueless players were crying about. "Changes are made based on a combination of 3 things. Feedback from our players (like all of you in this forum) Feedback from our own team Stats (we gather a multitude of stats we can break down in many ways... maps/team sizes/skill ratings/versions of the game/ etc.) Changes are not made based on just one of the three..." Guess they used 1 & 2 to justify the patch. But wait, lets not forget that one patch where Night Hunter would lose almost all of it's velocity when turning 90 degrees quickly. When Pete introduced that patch, he only used his own feedback (They do patches based on more than 1 of the 3 topics listed, right?) on that because he believed PC Hunters should not be faster than console hunters, in return the community came back and gave them a LOT of negativity which led to the patch being reverted. My point is, we don't talk openly due to devs making decisions like the tendril patch. And even if they do patch something in a poor way, it would be like that for months before we get more responses from the dev team.

    Exploits are openly shared, typically if someone doesn't know an exploit at this point its either because they are new to the game (less than 300h), dont actively talk/play with good players, or watch videos of Good players playing. Most exploits are very easy to figure out. Exploits are shared via a video, community chats, players teaching eachother, etc. The only reason instant tackles are not openly talked about or explained in video is because of the devs. They would get rid of it like they did with the old instant tackle. You do realize devs don't check these forums often unless they are told to check, right? They can't be arsed anymore, as pointed out by DigitalScapes. "Alpha Prodigy: Fix your game, please. DigitalScapes3: I tried."
  3. Developers left out quite a bit of information when announcing the new patch. Spent the last 30 minutes finding this information in detail. Not sure why they did some of the things listed here since no one really left feedback on some of the things changed, but oh well. Enjoy!

    Tackle is fine as it is. It is already easily dodged and can even dodge during animations that you normally can't jump in. Such as ground pound. A survivor can dodge a tackle in pretty much every scenario possible, sometimes even dodging without looking at the Night Hunter. The range is only 5 meters, 1.7 meters longer than dropkick. 5 meters really isn't even that long of a distance. 6 or 7 meters though? That would be too much as hunters would be able to tackle from the top of some roofs in old town to ground level. Also the standing still tackle is an exploit, a cheap one but it is needed. If we don't get instant tackle then night hunters would just get animation abused. A survivor can instantly dropkick if they hit an object right in front of the hunter after a tackle, the standing still prevents this. The tackle is easily dodged anyways. Same goes for the other instant tackle methods, without them, 90% of the time a hunter will get dropkick chained, unable to do anything, or just get hit by combos that the survivor doesn't deserve to hit. This would lead to death for the hunter or force them to flee, especially against highly skilled players. Autobalance 100% needs to go away, all of it. Ghost claw is good to have as well. Night Hunter booster nerfs claw damage already, hunters have to claw twice to get the damage they would normally get from one claw. Shield blocks claws as well. I'm not saying ghost claw needs to stay, but I am saying that it is useful at times. Its one thing to do it here and there but the players that just ground pound spit and then ghost claw to death are just scummy imo. A gradual decrease in damage after consecutive claws would be a nice fix for this. The only other issue I have with your post is why are only hunter exploits mentioned? Why aren't survivor exploits mentionee? Backsliding, Fire + Explosives, Dropping Grenades, Animation canceling with shield, bozak/ranger bow, and grappling hook. The list can go on and on.
  6. Prison Heist Loot Currently, there are five tiers of loot for the prison. Tier 0 is the best loot possible, these will be your golden tier weapons. Tier 1 is the next best possible loot, these will be your orange tier weapons. Tier 2 is the third best loot possible, these will be your violet tier weapons. Tier 3 is when you start getting not so good loot, these will be your blue tier weapons. Tier 4 are the green tier weapons. Tier 5 is the worst possible loot, these will be your white tier weapons. Prison Heist Difficulty Times In order to achieve a specific tier, your time of completion needs to be lower than the maximum stated below. There are different times required in different difficulties. Normal Mode Times Tier 0: 8 Minutes Tier 1: 15 Minutes Tier 2: 25 Minutes Tier 3: 40 Minutes Tier 4: 50 Minutes Tier 5: 60 Minutes Hard Mode Times Tier 0: 15 Minutes Tier 1: 25 Minutes Tier 2: 35 Minutes Tier 3: 50 Minutes Tier 4: 70 Minutes Tier 5: 90 Minutes Nightmare Mode Times Tier 0: 25 Minutes Tier 1: 35 Minutes Tier 2: 45 Minutes Tier 3: 70 Minutes Tier 4: 90 Minutes Tier 5: 110 Minutes Loot Room Times Just like the time for completion, there are different times for each mode you play on to loot. Looting time is also influenced by how many players are in the lobby. Normal Mode Loot Times 1 Player: 60 Seconds 2 Players: 50 Seconds 3 Players: 40 Seconds 4 Players: 30 Seconds Hard Mode Loot Times 1 Player: 2 Minutes 2 Players: 110 Seconds 3 Players: 100 Seconds 4 Players: 90 Seconds Nightmare Mode Loot Times 1 Player: 3 Minutes 2 Players: 170 Seconds 3 Players: 160 Seconds 4 Players: 150 Seconds

    Post Your Btz Matches!

    Highlights from the April patch
  8. Techland's PLS (their server) is down apparently? We are all on the 1/12 update until they decide to send out the 4/5 files through PLS again. Enjoy the 20 second resource regeneration, 8 meter DFA, 15 Second Zaid Flares, etc. Not sure when exactly it'll be back to normal. This is why the developers need to send out official updates for BTZ, exactly as I stated on the feedback post from Pete.
  9. Yeah. Hopefully the devs will actually listen to us instead of wait 3 months to fix this, again.

    Remapping Joystick Controls

    You only get banned if you go in VAC Secure game. Techland doesn't ban anyone from the game. There are people out there who use dll files to bypass the game's anticheat. With that you could change the mapping and play with others online but I believe mods should stay offline, regardless of what they are.

    Remapping Joystick Controls

    You can remap controls in Dying Light/DW/Data0.Pak/data/scripts/inputs/inputs_joystick.scr or something along those lines.

    Sniper Rifle

    They'd have to optimize the game more and fix that bug. Its not likely to happen. We can wish for it in DL2 or Bad Blood though.

    Sniper Rifle

    If you shoot and kill from a long distance the zombies just fall straight down. Looks very bad. That's why they didn't add a sniper. There is a sniper in game files, but they stopped working on it due to the long distance thing. The sniper in files just looks like a weird police rifle.

    5 things Techland need fix

    They can't fix these without removing every single elemental to the game. Can't really fix the boosters before the match either. Flares were changed to last 25 seconds after the 4/5 update. The long sense suppressor spit can be fixed by simply sleeping in game. Devs did fix autocrossbow, it no longer works in BTZ. Also, the devs do have checks for modified inventory files. But that is just the files, not the weapons in game themselves that are made through cheat engine.
  21. Use cloak potions or camouflage. Turn off your flashlight. Use firecrackers to distract other walkers.

    Pretty sure it was reverted back to 1.5 seconds. The 1/12 update made it 1 second. I'll recheck the file when I am home. EDIT: Explosion Delays on spit remain the same from 1/12. They take 1 second to explode.
