  • Following the release of Dark and Darker‘s hotfix #15, some unexpected item changes and issues arose that caused the devs to release hotfix #16, which includes server rollback to October 5, 9 AM UTC.
  • The devs have also apologized for making drastic balance changes and will revert those changes to a “slightly altered level at hotfix #14.”
  • 5 Blue Stone Shards will be given to all players who log in after this update to compensate for wasted time and effort.

Dark and Darker hotfix #16 has been released, and it rolls back the game servers to October 5, 9 AM UTC. The server rollback was necessary to tackle the issues that emerged after hotfix #15. Since server rollback usually means players’ time and efforts within a certain period have gone to waste, the devs compensated the community by giving 5 Blue Stone Shards to all players who log in after the update.

Less than a day after releasing hotfix #15, the devs made a public apology regarding the unexpected item changes, promising to come up with a solution. The devs made a series of announcements on the official Discord server, which has become the primary communication medium between the devs and players. After identifying the core problem, the devs thought fixing the issue with a rollback would be best.

Still, the database synchronization error, the root cause, had a few side effects with the rollback logic, causing item duplication issues. As such, the devs restarted the servers, released hotfix #16, and rolled back the game to October 5, 9 AM UTC. The team also reverted the “drastic balance changes” to a slightly altered level at hotfix #14.
