That is nice and all, but can we get a timeline on when these issues are going to be addressed. Like you gave a timeline on the Flairs.

I would rather you fix these immediately, than you spend time on giving us in-game Flairs.

Luxendra is a community manager, who has access to discord / forums and staff, but she is not a developer.

Issues, bugs, fixes, will all take time to sort through, into specific sections (This list for example - Known Issues - February Monthly Release 2022) and then given to the correct teams who can review them and start the process of finding the correct code, working out the problem and hopefully fixing it. That takes time to do and sadly, no real time frame can be given.

Fixes will come, some sooner, some months from now. Did you know that a fix was done, that was reported in Alpha and only just fixed with the latest patch? :slight_smile:

Patience is needed now as the teams get started on this new list. :heart:

I can understand that, but as @Luxendra I would like them to communicate that this patch caused some signficant bugs and stuttering issues that was not present in the previous LIVE version. It does feel out of touch to talk solely about the timeline for flairs, and not not mention the instabilty and issues that this patch caused.

Any statement is better than nothing, or at least some ownership of the issues caused.

Communicate that back up the chain, if need be, but it feel real bad like this talking around major issues.
