    Hello Mercenaries,


    Time for another update!


    It's been an adventurous time since the last HQ Report: We've conducted our first Public Test Server session. Then, we gathered all the data and the reports and proceeded to discuss the status and further details with Wiple Games. Finally, we ran a final PTS session just to be sure and...applied the patch!

    We have several topics to discuss. So, without further ado, let's get to it!

    PTS & Patch

    The patch is out, so it must be good, right? Right! It is good indeed. We've taken a big step towards fine-tuning the scheduled enhancements of the game.
    Let's start with what really happened; what was really in the patch. While I can't fully disclose the details (for security reasons), I can give you a rough idea: The majority of the package traffic between the server and the client is now using the UDP protocol.
    What does this do for us? First of all, it makes the communication between the client (your PC) and the servers smoother. More importantly, it lays the groundwork for more changes.
    And by changes I mean improving matchmaking, adding a system to handle lagging users etc.  As was mentioned earlier, making changes to the netcode of the game is a very meticulous and difficult task this far into game development. It requires fundamental changes and extensive care to ensure it is done properly.
    Of course, individual experience will depend on specs and connection but overall we are happy to say we see good trends in activity! We are also happy to let you know that "future netcode changes" starts with the very next patch!

    PTS Rewards

    I know. I know. That's why I gave it a whole section of its own.
    The extraction of some of the data proved to be a bit tricky since we were on different servers and databases. We are looking into it.
    Here is my promise: If we haven't tackled the issue by the next HQ Report, we'll find an alternative.

    NEXT!

    So, this is done. What happens now?
    I'm excited to be able to say we are already testing a new build and discussing many new (added “new” here, just to be more specific but maybe it changes the meaning) features for the near future as well as for the more distant future. A few highlights:

    • Ranked mode v2.0!
    • Further netcode improvements!
    • Map polish!
    • Bug fixes!
    • New skins!
    • And more?!

    #soon 
    But until then, have a quick look!

    Competitive Scene

    I’m glad to see that the latest patch awakened more of our competitive players, even on the PTS. We'd also like to devote more of our time to the competitive element of the game (especially as Ranked Mode is being reintroduced next patch). Nevertheless, while we’re at it, I’d like to drop a few comments on the topic.
    The competitive element of the game is made up of two equal and essential parts: Our efforts and the community efforts.


    On our side, we've initiated both long-term and short-term efforts. The short-term efforts focus principally on supporting the efforts of the community, while our longer term initiative is directed at driving the future of the game into e-sports. This comes both from Aeria/gamigo and Wiple Games. At this point, we cannot disclose much regarding our long-term efforts, except that we have features on the roadmap to support the scene (and the aforementioned short-term efforts).


    On the community side - community tournaments have started already. We want to support these tournaments in every way we can. I really care about these efforts and I'd like to see their organization flourish. On the other side, we want a certain quality for this supported, but unofficial scene to promote good organization efforts. For that, we've started working on certain guidelines for such tournaments as well as working on figuring out how we could support them. In essence, our tentative goal is to intensify the backing of organizers who successfully create tournaments. Nothing decided yet, we'll keep you updated. I'd love to hear your feedback on this.


    I'd like to add one personal note here. In the past I've worked on and been part of competitive communities, especially shooters and I've noticed certain "competitive" trends between sub-communities: One community will attack the other, they will try to make them look bad, they will point out every mistake etc. I do NOT want that. It's not to say we ignore mistakes, but we can choose to be constructive about them. If you are able to organize good tournaments, then you'll only look better to us if you are supportive of others. If you aren't doing what's needed, attacking others will only make everyone disregard your efforts. So please choose being constructive and supportive over adding to the drama. The more smoothly run tournaments we have, the better for all of us and we will definitely consider backing the kind of organizers that are supportive of the whole scene.

    Security

    Following the events of last week, I also want to talk about game security. As most of you are aware, we are working with Easy Anti-Cheat, a tool widely recognized in the industry. On top of that, both Aeria and Wiple have certain security measures directed at a variety of possible security cases. We're taking the issue very seriously. As soon as we received the information regarding the exploit, we reached out to both EAC and Wiple to issue a fix.

    As a general note, I kindly ask everyone not to resort to actions such as this. We have EAC, we have reports coming to us and we're always working on improving these systems. Not only are you ruining the experience for others, you are also risking your own account.

    HQ Reports

    Another short-ish HQ Report but I wanted to make sure we don't take too long to post it. Also, about that, let's take a look at our HQ Report frequency:

    • HQR#1: March 23, 2018
    • HQR#2: July 23, 2018 (3 months)
    • HQR#3: Communication Reestablished: Jan 9, 2018 (whooping ~5 months)
    • HQR#4: March 7, 2019 (2 months)
    • HQR#5: April 17, 2019 (~1 month)

    I'd like to keep this 1-2 month trend as promised. Once our current discussions are clarified, I'll be sharing more regarding upcoming features as well.

    Let me know if you have any questions and queries other than the usual ones!

    Signature Event

    Last but not least, I want to thank all participants for entering the signature and especially the winner: PatrykPro! I have to say, I really like the movie director additions, I did not consider that angle myself.

    That's all, folks!


    Thanks for reading and see you next time.

    PS: If you see the_Director in the game, try to position your character in a way that you catch his bullets. I heard that scores extra points.

    Mercenaries,

    HQ has established contact and reported a new update! It seems like the data collected by the PTS Strike Force was the missing piece of a complex puzzle. Therefore, we are engaging on a new mission, as our sources report that a new netcode protocol was deployed today, at 1300 hours in the sector Bravo Echo Romeo Lima India November. This is not a drill, ladies, so lock n’ load! From now on it’s up to us to sneak into their servers and figure what the hell is going on.

    We are excited to announce the latest Ironsight Netcode Update, the first step of a set of changes in the communication protocol to improve the Ironsight experience.

    We will monitor our servers closely in the coming days and weeks to further analyze the results and work with this data to bring you even more changes in the next patches. Keep an eye out for the next HQ Reports to read more on the topic!

    Disclaimer: If you have issues patching the content update, please uninstall and reinstall the game from our website. If reinstalling didn't work please contact our Customer Support. For questions and discussions, feel free to visit our Discord server.

    If you want to share your feedback, please post in the forum here.

    Should you find any bug, please report it in this form.

    Changes

    • Changes to communication protocol.

    Bug Fixes

    • Fixed a bug where an issue was preventing users from equipping Titles or Emblems.

    Mercenaries,

    It's been about two months and an update is due! So put aside your gun and take a drink. It's debrief time.

    Netcode Fix & Public Test Server

    This is the big one! For those who missed the last HQ Report: The last time we tried to fix the Netcode, it caused big issues on our live servers. To prevent that from happening again, we are going to deploy a public test server to test the netcode fix.
    It's been a while since you've received some info and you may be wondering why. In sake of transparency and to satisfy curiosity of those who want to know more about what's going on behind the scenes, here is what happened:

    • Wiple Games provided us with the next patch.
    • We deployed it on our internal test server and did some testing. As we know that the main testing for this topic would require you, the players, these were mostly surface tests.
    • We ran some stress tests on our server.
    • We prepared the communications and some rewards (more on that later).
    • We prepared the public test server (PTS) and deployed the patch there.
    • We ran the surface and stress test on the PTS.
    • We finalized the installers and uploaded them.
    • We worked together with our mod team to test the installer and PTS connections.
    • We coordinated with Wiple Games on the finalization.

    Of course, there are many back-and-forths and sub-steps in each of these. Therefore, it took us some time to prepare, but here we are, finally ready to go! By the time you are reading this, news regarding the PTS will already be up on our web page!

    All of our team here in Berlin and Wiple Games in Seoul hope that you will join us in testing to help us get the best results. To thank you for your support, we prepared some rewards (boxes and chips) for anyone testing. You'll find the details on that in the relative news. But it doesn't stop there! We actually have a small, exclusive gift for your participation!


    The Dissection Specialist is a tag title for all those, who enter the PTS to analyze the details of the latest content for Ironsight.

    Dissecationspec.png
    We will have some more exclusive gifts for certain actions during the open beta, but we'll talk about those when their time comes.

    Wiple Visit

    An important event for us this month was a visit from Wiple Games! Our main point of contact from Wiple and the Senior Project Manager Chris visited our office and we partied hard had meetings all day long!

    It was the first time we met in person, so it was really nice to be able to talk face to face. Of course, Chris shared with us MANY SECRETS, like the upcoming Classified_EN.png, Classified_EN.png and Classified_EN.png. In fact, we even saw the long awaited Classified_EN.png!

    You'll see more about that later. Of course, we took a picture and thought you guys might want to see it too.

    Ironteam.jpg

    Glimpse of the Future

    Some of you wanted to see what lay in the future and what else Wiple Games was working on. In addition to what's listed above, I want to talk about and even actually SHOW you some things Chris shared with us.


    Disclaimer_EN.png

    Everything mentioned below is either being analyzed or is work-in-progress. The final results may and most likely will change. Depending on the results of our analysis and how everything turns out, some may not even be implemented.
    For some of them, there will be little to almost no information, but I wanted to include the headlines to let you know something is being worked on.

    Ranked Mode

    Wiple Games has been working on fixing and bringing back the Ranked Mode, and they're almost done! We don't have an ETA right now since the focus is on testing the Netcode. You may hear about Ranked Mode #soon, after we are done with that. More details will also follow.

    New Modes

    New modes are in the works. Current plans include 2 PvP modes and more & better modes in PvE!

    Custom Games

    We know you want more options and we're conveying that to Wiple. We will let them know which options are more important, so please drop a comment, if you have any features that you prefer!

    Battle Pass

    Battle Pass systems are being implemented on many shooters and we are considering doing the same. It's still in the works, but we think it may be a good idea to give everyone something to do and earn attractive rewards in the process.

    Maps

    One of the first things Wiple shared with us even before the visit is concerning maps. Basically, the changes are mostly cosmetic and come in two flavors: Quality improvement and anti-camping. In addition, there are some new maps (either those being revised from the KR version or completely new ones). Quality improvement basically means making better use of the power of the Iron Engine™. Anti-camping means changes applied to lighting to make certain camp spots more visible.


    Here, have a look:

    BaA_1.jpg


    BaA_2.jpg

    BaA_3.jpg

    BaA_4.jpg

    BaA_5.jpg

    Drones

    There were two main topics when it comes to drones. One is a new drone being worked on! We don't have anything to show you at the moment, but I'll tease that it's a defensive drone.
    The other topic was Wiple's analysis of drone categories. You might already know that in the Korean version, tactical and offensive categories did not exist. Having seen results of both, Wiple is comparing the two methods and analyzing, if it's better to remove the categories. What do you think?

    Conclusion

    As you can see, there is a lot going on for Ironsight! We still have no ETAs for the launch or a Steam version, but it's simply because we do not want to rush the game to a full release with obvious issues. To that end, we are reading all your feedback, checking the data on our side and are coordinating with Wiple to deliver a better experience for our players.

    That's all for this time, Mercs! Thanks again for your support and please drop a comment if you made it this far. Now, time to pick your weapon back up and get some kills! Until next time!


    PS: Speaking of matches, if you see the_Director in the game, try to stand very still in front of this person and do NOT shoot him. I need easy kills.

    Mercenaries,

    After a lot of planning, we can finally present you with our first PTS testing!

    You might ask, what a PTS is, or what we are testing. You will find all of this and more in the following:

    What is the Public Test Server (PTS)?

    PTS means Public Test Server. It is a dedicated environment where all Ironsight players can try upcoming game changes and test new features.

    What you need to know:

    All testing servers are made for testing purposes! As it is a testing environment, please understand that you might face errors and bugs. Any kind of purchases with AP is not possible, instead, your PTS account will have a starting fund of 500K GP and 5000 CHIPs. You will be playing with your own account, but the test environment and the live server are different realities, so any progress made in one will not be reflected in another. You may lose - in the PTS environment - items, progress, have troubles playing, etc. The advantage of such servers is that they allow you to access new content and test it before it's patched on live servers. The Public Test Server is located in Europe, which may potentially cause some latency for our players outside of Europe. However, to improve the quality of testing, we invite all our players to join: All feedback is welcome and important for us to better evaluate the game and the feature(s) being tested.

    We will have "Focus Testing" session, on Wednesday and Saturday from 6:00PM to 11:59PM (CET). The aim of those sessions is to gather the maximum amount of users in order to get a maximum amount of information from our server.

    And of course, because we appreciate you helping us, if you play during those sessions, you'll get rewards on your LIVE account! You'll find more information below!

    Should you have any questions, feel free to contact our team on Discord.

    What are we testing?

    With this update, we will test our latest patch with the following changes:

    • Netcode Update: Change in communications protocol from TCP to UDP for the game servers.

    When and how long is it going to be available?

    The public test server will be accessible to access from Tuesday, 12th of March at 12PM (CET) until Monday, 18th of March at 10AM (CET).


    How to access the PTS?

    You will need a distinctive Ironsight PTS client, which you can simply download from here. After the installation is done, you will be able to use the same credentials you use on the Live servers. On the PTS, testers will start from the beginning and have to select a new Callsign again. You will be able to quick-start on the PTS, which allows you to purchase weapons and attachments easily.


    Where can I meet other mercenaries?

    You can meet other mercenaries on our discord in the dedicated PTS sections in order to chat & share your feedback/opinion. Here are the dedicated sections:

    • #pts_announcement - here we will post major information regarding the PTS.
    • #known_issues - here will post the main issues known regarding the PTS.
    • #pts_general - here you can chat with other mercenaries about anything regarding the PTS.
    • #pts_questions_and_feedback - here your can ask questions or share your feedback about the PTS. We also, have a form for you to fill out, if you want to be 200% sure we get your feedback! You can find the link in the section below. #pts_technical_support - In this channel, you can report any technical issue, and our team will assist you if they can.

    How to provide feedback?

    Feedback about the PTS and the features that are being tested can be shared on our forum. Alternatively, you can fill out this form to give us a better understanding of your experience.

    How to report bugs/issues?

    First of all, you will not see a developer right here, as gamigo/Aeria Games is the publisher. Now to the points mentioned:


    - Netcode is still broken,

    The first Netcode change attempt in August was sadly not working as intended. The developers are currently working on another version of the Netcode. There is no ETA on a delivery of this. More information on the Netcode attempt in August can be found on our website here.


    - ranked is still broken.

    There might be still some issues with the ranked matches, but the situation already highly improved. If you see issues with ranked, we ask you kindly to report it in our bug report form.


    - Gun balance still needs work

    There will always be balancing coming to the game. Our developers are taking player opinion as well as statistics of weapons to balance weapons.


    - Steam release

    As you can read in our FAQ stream will come at a later point: https://ironsight.aeriagames.com/faq

    Let's see what you got.


    Your Ironsight Team

    Corvinore No, all the weapons were gathered, but at the end we voted for our favorite skins and these were the Top 10 at the end. As we never specified which elements were meant, we decided to keep them in the voting. The mentioned weapon was still included in the voting, but did not reach the Top 10.

    Mercenaries,


    We saw the awesome designs you created and it was hard to vote for some of them.


    Regardless, there can only be one Top 10!


    You will find here the Top 10 designs that we voted for. We hope you enjoy our selection and we forwarded the designs to our developers.


    Disclaimer: The topic of this event was initially "Elements". We first thought about only "classic elements" (Fire, Water, Wind, Earth), but as we saw some great elements regarding chemistry, we decided to keep them in, as we did not specify the topic any further.

As "other" image you can use: a minimap example, additional own designs or a photo-shopped design of the location. The more effort you put into your submission, the more value it has at the end.

    Your Ironsight Team

    Mercenaries,


    This thread will feature all weapons as .png files that you can use for your own designs to submit for events or your own enjoyment!


    We will categorize this thread by weapon types so you can find the weapon you are looking for easier.


    1) Assault Rifles / Assault Rifles (2)

    2) Sub Machine Guns

    3) Sniper Rifles

    4) Light Machine Guns

    5) Secondary Weapons / Secondary Weapons (2)

    6) Melee Weapons


    You can click on the button and you will see all weapons of said category. Each sub-thread contains 10 assets. If you don't find a weapon of one type in the first thread (Assault Rifle) try and search for it in the second (Assault Rifles (2)).


    Once a new weapon has been added to the game we will update this thread. Should an existing in-game weapon be missing from this thread, please poke a Moderator or Community Manager.


    Disclaimer: Please don't take this as a reference to the current in-game models, as it might happen that the renders are not 100% equal to the in-game designs. This is no issue for skin designs, as they would be adapted.

    The Ironsight Team

    Easy answer to this question is: No.


    What is meant is, that the creation of the dog tag title should be your own. Copyrighted material of course is forbidden (like no Hello Kitty designs that would be disqualified) but general usage of designs, like a skull that someone designed in the internet and modified it in the title, is totally fine. At the end it just needs to be your creation without any copyright issue!

    The results are there! Sadly, nobody got over 4 correct answers. Here is the solution:


    Chopper: Koala

    Flloyd: Meerkats

    Splashy: Elephant

    Vanilla: Tortoise

    Deadpool: Kangaroo

    Charly: Lion

    Reeds: Capybara

    Worgoroth: Pangolin


    The rewards were sent to the winners and good luck in the next team event!

    First of all, accusing someone of hacking public is nothing we tolerate, that'S why I edited your thread. Second, if you think that someone is cheating you have to record it. To accuse someone without proof is not valid and we can't take any action. Please provide a video proof to our support. You can simply record in-game with a game recorder like GeForce Experience or similar here: https://support.gamigo.com/index.php?/english


    I am sorry to hear that you have a bad experience with other players.
