Here some quick additional info in regard to our patching process:
We are currently doing a lot of smaller hotfixes for crashes and other critical issues either reported by the community or highlighted through internal testing. While these might not fix the issues for everyone immediately, each of these smaller updates is an improvement for someone. In this case, for the hotfixes, our next focus after stability will be server performance and anti-harassment game mechanics.
The same time as these go out, we are also working on bigger patches that will include parity updates (bringing different patch builds or platforms to the same content status), balancing adjustment and various other content improvement. These patches are more complex and have therefore to be tested even more thoroughly. We are looking at a parity console patch that will, at long last, bring missing features and fixes by the middle of next week.
Or to recap, there are different types of patches that are deployed depending on critical status and priority. While we do understand that missing features is really frustrating, not being able to play the game due to crashes or performance issues or critical exploits has to be weighted against bigger content updates.
As always, your continued feedback helps us tackle all of this faster and the team is working hard to bring you content and fixes as fast as they can.
Thank you for your support and understanding. We hope you keep Surviving, Building and Dominating
