Hey Everyone,

We're trying something new with this week's patch notes. We're hoping to be able to give you guys a clear and consistent format, where you can be confident you'll find all the changes to the game more easily. We'd really love some feedback on how we've done, and how we can continue to improve the patch notes for you all, so feel free to reach out to us on socials!

Patch notes achievements header icon.png Rainbow's End

A bug in the ‘Firework Festival’ Treasure Hunter promotion allowed some players to re-roll prizes indefinitely. Upon investigation, we discovered that there was an increased injection of GP into the game during the period the bug was live (approximately double that seen on a typical day). This is not a significant amount in terms of the overall game economy. You can read the full post here.

  • Fixed an issue with Rainbow's End that prevented players from claiming a 1x multiplier unlock if they already had x7 multiplier unlocked.

On Tuesday, some players were unable to receive their Twitch Prime rewards. We then applied a hotfix to resolve this which accidentally allowed everyone to receive the rewards - which we then hotfixed. Sorry for the confusion!
