We hear the baubles affect other players in funny ways… Hunt down the zombie elves and loot Christmas presents they carry. The more presents you pick up, then more Tokens you get! Krampus - Collect the Tokens to unlock the exclusive Krampus outfit and mask. You’ll need 100 Tokens in total to get the whole set. The Slashing All The Way event starts on December 20th, 2018 and lasts through January 7th, 2019. Have a slashing New Year! How the game got bigger: The Founder’s Pass is here! Not three but four Legendary pieces of clothing are available now for all Founders. Have fun slashing around as the Golden Veteran or the Golden Emissary (each outfit consists of the top and the pants). How it plays better: You can report cheaters! Choose the type of misbehavior, add a comment, post a screenshot or video if you want, and send the report to us. For now the report option can be found in the main menu, and will be expanded in future updates. (in comment field only latin keyboard characters are supported) The Evac Zone timer has been extended to 50 seconds You will now find more zombies roaming the streets... ...and they’ve even invaded the lobby! Which is a great opportunity to get some slashing warm-up. How we squashed the bugs: We eliminated blurred screen after you were killed in the lobby We get rid of rare cases of game freezes upon picking up an item We made sure the main menu updates correctly after purchases Music now resumes properly in the main menu after leaving the lobby/match We resolved issues with the Biter QTE (when played on a gamepad) We added previously unlocalized lines of soldier chatter New in-game event and patch 0.2.9 are hereDec 6, 2018 - Community Announcements KATANA VS. BASEBALL BAT in-game event & more The razor-sharp katana, and the unsophisticated but reliable baseball bat - two iconic weapons that no self-respecting zombie apocalypse could do without. But which is better? Take the matters in your own hands and see for yourself in the newest Bad Blood event. Event ends 12/09 00:00 UTC. These are the rules: Katanas and baseball bats are super easy to find Baseball bats are much stronger, and easily send zombies and bandits flying Katanas are stronger too, cutting through flesh as if it were butter. They can even one-hit kill bigger zombies Patch 0.2.9 notes: How the game plays better: You can switch between the FPP and TPP view in the spectator mode We removed the parry icon We made balance tweaks to the Virals: they’re now a bit less aggressive and have a slower reaction time How it works better: We took care of an exploit that allowed for faster attacks with two-handed weapons by switching to the bow We made further optimizations to the network code, which should improve the experience especially for players with slower broadband speeds Missing audio was added How we squashed the bugs We eliminated a rare issue when a player would fall under the map if hit by an arrow We fixed situations when the evac counter didn’t run properly /Bad Blood TeamGet more rewards with Stash Craze Event and see patch 0.2.8 notesNov 23, 2018 - Community Announcements STASH CRAZE - new in-game event + more bugfixing Ready, set, go - it’s event time in Bad Blood! Until Nov 27th, you have the chance to win loot stashes, including Legendary ones. Let’s review the rules: Extract the hives as you play the game. For each easy hive you will get 1 token, 3 tokens for extracting a normal hive, and 5 tokens for a hard one. Collect tokens daily to unlock rewards. You can collect up to 40 tokens a day. The token counter is reset every day at 23:59 UTC. Each day of the event, you can get the following rewards: one Normal Stash for reaching 5 tokens, one Rare Stash for 20 tokens, and one Legendary Stash for 40 tokens. Notice that you don’t have to spend the tokens to buy anything - the rewards are simply unlocked once you reach each of the daily thresholds. You can check your current number of tokens in the upper right corner of the main menu screen. On top of the event, we also squashed a few more bugs: Sometimes when you were about to pick up a modded weapon, the weapon comparison incorrectly showed that the new weapon was no stronger than the unmodded one. It’s no longer the case. We fixed a rare case when two connected players were put in different modes (private and normal). Killing Spitters and Virals messed with the Hives killed counter. It’s fixed now. When using a PS4 gamepad, the menus now show correct shoulder button icons. /Bad Blood Team Patch 0.2.7 - Bugs squashing and matchmaking improvementsNov 19, 2018 - Community Announcements Good day, Founders!

This week we’re bringing a range of under-the-hood improvements that will make playing Bad Blood a much smoother and seamless experience. As always, we’re looking forward to your feedback.

As always we’ve been working hard to make Bad Blood better and more fun, surely and steed-ily. So here it is: a special update before we all move on to celebrating the night of the mares: How it got bigger: 4 new “equine” masks for you to frolic around in: Creepy Horse, Real Jackass, Homicidal Zebra, and Dairy Horse How it plays better: You can find Legendary weapons on the map more often (by 100%) Arrows are harder to find (by 25%) You recover more quickly when frozen (effect duration shorter by 1 second) When frozen, the slowdown effect is less severe (now 70% of normal speed, was 60%) The kick can’t be spammed anymore as it will drain stamina /Bad Blood Team Dying Light’s ‘Bad Blood’ Battle Royale Spin-Off is Basically Already Dead on SteamSep 27, 2018 - GitHyp2015's Dying Light instantly became one of the most successful zombie games ever on Steam with an impressive peak of 45k players at launch. And since then, Techland has managed to keep Dying Light in Steam’s Top 100 most played games by constantly releasing new free content. Now, with Dying Light 2 officially announced (but still with no official release date), the devs have jumped in on the battle royale craze to try and squeeze what’s left out of the original game’s engine before the sequel. The result? A $19.99 standalone early access game with mixed reviews on Steam and very low player counts that are already at times under 100 concurrent players online. In its first week on Steam, Dying Light: Bad Blood peaked at just 455 concurrent players. Its weak launch was far lower than other recent failed battle royale games and 94% lower than Dying Light’s peak of 8k concurrent players this month. The original Dying Light still sells for $39.99 on Steam and peaked as high as 20k concurrent players during recent sales. By offering Bad Blood at $19.99, Techland must have hoped to bring back at least half the player base... if not more new players from the BR crowd. That hasn’t been the case. And by the look of the game's current population, Bad Blood is going to have to go the free-to-play in order to survive as players are already complaining about the matchmaking taking too long just to fill up the new 12-player game mode. What’s also surprising is the lack of streamers on Twitch promoting the game and the overall reception from players. Bad Blood’s debut peaked at #8 on Twitch and reviews on Steam have been mixed -- a stark contrast to Dying Light’s very positive reviews. Despite often being praised by gamers, Techland’s decision to make Bad Blood a stand-alone game isn’t winning over fans and certainly isn't paying off for the developer. Based on the player counts and feedback, it seems like most gamers are saving their money for the dev's upcoming zombie parkour sequel and/or other BR games.
