Patch Notes for V.2.5.0 will go live with the update, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

See you soon,

My fps are dropping when i jump out from the airplane (parachute). They drop to 40/30 while i'm on the parachute, but normally i play with 200+ like you can see on the screenshots!

Screenshots ingame:

Can someone help me with this problem? Thank you!

This is a known thing that was introduced in v2.2.0. The world is loading after you jump out and can put a ceiling on your max frame rate for a short time during your decent. We have improvements coming in the next few releases to help address this.

We're definitely looking into it. Thanks!

Hey Loomin. Will our levels reset in season 2? Currently Level 85 so obviously XP takes ages to level up to get to next level. Will that reset so in season 3 I can rapidly earn lower level stars again?


Yes; your levels will reset, just like they did in Season 1 >> Season 2.

While talking about the minimap/map graphic itself... could you guys put the blue electrical towers on the map? Makes good references points, but they don't exist on the map :(.

Hmm... those should already be there... they're kind of small on the big map, but I can see them :)

Hey, something else I've noticed that I just cannot test, is that I once had a game where when I got out of the bus, the UI showed that I had 100 shield, 100HP. I've seen it happen on the starting island before, but not in the game itself. Anyway, it's an issue because you can't use any shield potions because the client is saying that you have full shield, but when you get shot, you take body damage. So, you're stuck at 100 max HP until you die(this happened in solo so I don't know about being downed).

I've only seen it talked about one other time, and the guy brought up a potential cause that I hadn't thought about before. Both of us had built and used a campfire on the starting island beforehand. I submitted a bug report the day it happened(it was when the new map dropped), but I haven't seen it mentioned in patch notes and the nature of the starting island makes it very unlikely that I'll find materials to build a floor and a campfire, to record and test it.

Maybe you could hop into some sort of internal server and verify this for me. The fact that I've only seen it talked about one other time makes sense because of how rare it is to find a campfire and mats on the starting island, along with the idea to use it for no reason.

I think your best bet is to keep submitting bug reports if you see that kind of problem. I haven't seen it myself (I load into the game dozens of times a day) or heard guys on the team talking about it, so I'm guessing it's a pretty rare bug. But if you submit a bug report, it sends along the logs that coders need to chase that stuff down.

Hey there,

Our v.2.5.0 update will release tomorrow, we apologize for the poor communication around this release and the delay of the patch! When we have more info on when the update will land, we’ll drop those details.

What’s up with Seasonal Gold and Firecracker Tickets?

Our initial plan was to reset Seasonal Gold in v2.5.0 which may have caused you to lose leftover gold. To try and avoid that we adjusted to convert the leftover gold to Firecracker Tickets. Due to the delay in the build, there is nothing in the event store and Storm Llamas have disappeared. We did a poor job communicating this and did not create a good experience for you.

Future gold resets will be on specific dates, following the Spring it on Event, and we will communicate that information to you in advance. For now, Seasonal Gold will be converted to Firecracker Tickets. We’ll be adding a random Blue Schematic (no limit on number) to the store, for you to spend any leftover Seasonal Gold you have.

Current conversion rates can we found below:

  • Each stack of 1000 Storm Event Tickets has been exchanged for Storm Llamas.
  • Up to 3000 Seasonal Gold will be converted 3 to 1 into Firecracker Tickets, and any additional gold beyond that will be lost.

Yeah, I just launched the game and tested it out:

I've seen threads talking about it before, as well. When I first decided to bind mouse wheel, it didn't work for me until I read a comment talking about the workaround I mentioned above. This was in early November I think.

ok yeah I just got it to happen. Thanks I'll get a bug logged.

Oh wow. Epic replied. Please just tell us that you're either shutting down or letting this AMAZING gem fail, so that I can stop wasting my money on upgrading and vbucks. I usually don't voice on how much I've spent on a game, one set to be f2p btw, but EASILY a few hundreds on this side of fortnite (STW) alone.

Edit: This is an amazing game that MANY want to see succeed, and on both the battle Royale and save the world side.

We're doing neither of those things. STW still have full development plans and we are continue to push updates. Unfortunately, we dropped the ball hard on communication with this one. Last minute bugs popped up that prevented us from shipping on time and we didn't let you guys know in the proper way.

I have a question regarding the current season. I have already completed my battle pass and have been accruing my completed challenges (not redeeming them). Will these transfer over to the next season so I can redeem them right off the bat?

Hello fellow min-maxer! These will not transfer over to the next season. You'll want to redeem them for the EXP before the season ends.

To clarify, the price of the Season 3 Battle Pass will be 950 V-bucks. We will not be offering the Season 3 Battle Pass as a real money purchase. Spread the word!
PS: If you own the Season 2 Battle Pass, you’ll be getting a bonus of 5 tiers upon purchase of the Season 3 Battle Pass!

EDIT: More context

Where is it? Devs made a declaration to be more open and communicate with community, but here we are again.

I took a break for a couple weeks and came back today to check out the new event. Sign-in screen mentions the event but it's nowhere to be found. I come to Reddit and see the shitstorm with NO official Epic post about the situation.

This is where the team needs to step it up and tell us what the hell is going on. This is just such a joke now, Epic. These consistent scenarios is why we don't trust you anymore.

We agree 100% that we dropped the ball on the communication regarding the patch. There were last minute issues that prevented us from landing the patch on time. This is definitely an area we need to improve on.

This might come off as a rant,
but it’s not supposed to be.

Dear EpicGames,
Please don’t let Save The World die!

The game-mode is so (more) much fun! Yes, it has its problems which needs to be fixed, but the fun outweights those issues (for me and my friends that I group up with)

Don’t let it die, Show your support for SaveTheWorld!

Please don’t rant about the game’s problems in this thread. But show EpicGames that you as a redditor want Save The World to keep being developed!

Kind regards, A fan that fell in love with this game,
and doesn’t want to give up hope.

In response to your post, Save the World will definitely continue and we have more to bring you in the coming months.

We've recently released some roadmaps(found at the bottom of the patch notes) with some upcoming content and additions we have planned. Some of those timeframes may adjust, but those are our goals.

In our last Dev Update video we also mentioned that EPIC has most certainly not abandoned Save the World.

We understand the frustration on some things that were not communicated properly. We have been working to increase our presence on our StW social channels, but we still have room to improve and will continue to do so. We'll have more information on V.2.5.0 later on today. Hope this helps!

I think we can all accept that, not much choice not to. But this isn't the first time we've heard from y'all that a mistake was made and you have to do better. So do better how?

That's a fair question and I agree. The first thing we're doing is dedicating more community folks that can focus specifically on StW. The rapid growth of Fortnite has meant we've had our community team spread across the entire game. We've spent some time staffing up and Clintonious and Magyst are now dedicated to StW interaction. You'll still see Popo, Mooney, Flak, myself, etc. here. Having a couple of reliable folks to make sure things don't slip through the cracks will help.

10 points for creativity. Wow.

Hey there! Do me a favor and send me your Ticket ID number from your support ticket. You should be able to find it at the bottom of the email. Once I have that number I can get it escalated. Thanks! :)

Honestly I see why they don't. The downside of communicating with us is that it builds up our expectations. Suddenly everyone is expecting the specifics things they wanted but when they see what epic actually meant they get disappointed.

There's no downside. We clearly failed to communicate information that was important to you. We can do better.

So a Valentines event that is not being released on Valentine’s Day? Save the World is paid and Battle Royal is free yet BR gets way more attention and updates. The communication is almost non existent. I didn’t want to believe all the salt but now I see it for myself. Shouldn’t the community manager be communicating with us. Feeling let down and disappointed. Not cool on a day that everyone should feel the love.

We're here. We missed the boat on clearly sharing the delay and seasonal gold details. That's on us and we're sorry. No excuses. We simply have to do better than this.

Good point

Yeah, that's the thing, which means we'd probably only want to update the map if you have vision on the area... anyway, not saying it's a bad idea, just that it would probably turn into a fair amount of work and there's lots to do :)

I keep all of my builds close together. Walls/stairs are on the side mouse buttons, floors are scrollwheeldown and roofs are scrollwheelup.

Also if you guys aren't aware, to bind the scroll wheel, one has to scroll all of the way to the bottom of the menu to bind scroll down, and they have to scroll all of the way up to bind scroll up. I don't know if this is something that can be fixed, but I've talked to a lot of people who just figured that you can't bind the scroll wheel because it wasn't registering.

Hey, I just gave it a try and it worked after one or two wheel clicks. Are you still having this problem?

I love your username! t for traps is cool, I use a similar setup! My Z is heals/ sheilds. i also use the scroll wheel forward for mouse but the scroll wheel down for floor and thumb button/q for walls

I actually just moved my heal over to C, since that H was too far of a reach. :)
