Dear Denizens of Nosgoth,

As many of you will be aware, to celebrate the wonderful time of year dedicated to all things dark and disturbing; we brought body capturing and Ghostly Mysterious drops into Nosgoth over the weekend. In addition to that, for the first time ever, we were able to drop Keys…

…or so we thought.

As it turned out, the Keys did not drop. In an attempt to celebrate the time of year with Halloween happenings, we managed to conjure a ghost in the system. That ghost prevented keys from dropping.

I would like to apologise to each of you for any upset, anger or inconvenience caused because of this bug. We’re working to ensure that that particular issues doesn’t occur again.

Now that we’ve determined that there was indeed an issue, and have identified the cause of the problem; work has begun to find a fix for you guys. Many of you played your butts off to try and get a key, and we want to make sure that those who WOULD have received a key, get one.

On top of that, if you were one of the players who specifically spent many hours playing Capture the Body in the hopes of getting a drop; you will receive as many keys as you WOULD have over the weekend had the system been working correctly.

If you do receive a key, you will still get to keep the item that dropped that round. Thanks to the ghost and our fix today, you could theoretically have received a Key and a Ghostly Ability or Weapon from a single match over the weekend. There’s always a silver lining to every cloud ehh :).

We’re currently delivering any Keys that would have been dropped over the weekend. This process will complete over the next couple of hours, I hope you’ll bear with us while this is happening.

Sorry once again everyone. We’re running headlong through Nosgoth’s beta to make as many cool things happen for you as possible. Sometimes issues like this can occur, and when they do, we do our best to rectify them.

UPDATE: All Keys have now been delivered. Thank you once again for your patience, and best of luck with the contents of your chest!

Regards,
Oghamsmith

I was starting to thing it was just really stingy odds. Would they have only dropped in CTB or League too, because I didn't really get to play CTB. Also, I've asked a couple of non Devil's Night related questions on twitter as AesirHod. Can you take a look as soon as you get the chance.

They dropped across all modes, however Capture the body had a higher likelihood of Keys dropping.

As for the Twitter posts, I'll try to get to them later today; although there's a lot going on here at the moment. We're working to get this fix out, and League 3.0 has just gone live (with the ability to queue with a friend :)).

Sorry for all the pestering lately, I'll try to be patient.

Thank you so much for doing this! I probably won't get a key 'cause I didn't play too many matches, but it's still nice to see you guys fixing the bug and compensating people for the issues. :) It's nice to see a group that's as happy to step up and actually correct things that the fans are miffed about. I'm sorry if my posts the past few days have sounded overly rude!

Thank you guys. Sometimes things happen and I can understand that. I appreciate that you did this because of it. Not only does it make me feel like my hard work payed off, it also makes me feel more welcomed in a way. I feel sorry for the ones who still didn't get a key, but I suppose that just means a key didn't drop for you in the first place (without the bug). But I suppose it should be working properly now, so I hope you'll get a decent amount of keys next time keys are dropped. (Myself I played probably around 5-10 hours and got 2 keys)

This mean I don't have any key? But how? I play a lot of hours 30th, 31th and 1st

Played a lot as usual. Looks like my items and keys dropped directly into chects. Is it time to delete them or wait a little? Because of chests brings lags.
UPD Keys delivered as i read, looks like i tried not enough. It's fine, i'll eat my chests.

Yeah I played for a few hours and got no keys. How many hours did you have to play to get one?

No wait! If you want delete the Devil's Chest at least wait the Trade will be added and give them to me (if I don't find the Bloody Survivor skin first).

I deleted half of them as i can remember. Deleted about 130/160 of all chests. Trading chests will be possible after few years i think. There are too much issues with chests and keys need to be fixed.

I don't think years, maybe months, or 1 year, but not a FEW years. I only hope I will found that skin :S

I played together a friend of mine maybe he did one or two games w/o me and he got 5 key so we played the same amout of time and game basically so i should have 5 key by myself too, none zero nada nisba null 0

seriously i find it absurd of having 0 key if it was not bugged i bet i could have dropped at lest 3 for the amount of time i played capture the body + ranked + normal with friends

Played the last three hours of CtB access, got two keys. I'm happy to have them but reluctant to use them - Because Nosgoth is still a worthless casino.

I got 1 key not including the 2 I won from the last Ranked League. I can't remember how much I played exactly but it was sporadic over the weekend with a lot of CTB and some unranked TDM.

If you are going to open chests, better to open the devil ones as theres less chance of disappointment (you will get minimum Devils Night abilities/item(s)). The other chests may just give you a normal weapon or worse an XP booster. :p

no key received, beside the bug (never something working from first try in nosgoth, lol) the key drop was very very very rare.

I got nothing so far and I´ve played like 6 matches of CTB, is that not good enough then? :/

Zarxiel93
3rd Nov 2015, 06:56
Still nothing... I don't have any Key and any reward of the league (I was Blood 2 in the last league, so I must have 2 Keys and the Alchimist Bloody Victor skin)

They've stated that the rewards for League 2.0 will come toward the end of the week.

But I don't get a thing.
I played for 3 days, for a lot of hours, and I don't win any Key or the bug is not completly fixed?

There is a random element to the drops, so it's entirely possible that you wouldn't have received any; while others with few games could have. But of course, the more games you play; the greater the number of drop chances you received. I played 8 games and didn't receive any keys, whereas others have played fewer and got a key.

If you don't have a key by now then I'm afraid that you weren't one of those fortunate enough to receive one. As for League rewards, we published an article about their deliver last week (http://www.nosgoth.com/blog/beta-league-2-0-grand-finale).

Played a lot of rounds during this time and got no key - and don't saw that anyone get one I played with (also a few times in "Capture the body").

For me the key-drop-event was less reliable. Things like this damage Nosgoth. Feels a little bit like cheating the community @dear Nosgoth developer

What your code obviously cant make up for are the people like moi that played 10 matches, saw nothing drop and then decided that the (still not significantly altered, let alone improved) CTB mode is not worth it.

We haven't delivered League rewards yet ( literally linked to an article a few posts up explaining this :P). The Key you received was only for the CTB event. Your digital winnings for Beta League 2.0 should be delivered by the end of the week.

While whether or not CTB was improved is somewhat down to personal preference (I really like the change), you are absolutely correct about the other point. Obviously if you had played more matches, you would have had greater drop chances.

Quick question regarding keys/chests:
Since there is nothing of value in the regular chests, I thought I'd stockpile Devil's Treasures for later use.
Will they stay in the game/inventory or be removed/reverted to regular chests later?

I will not be buying keys, not even with ESL runestones, as to not give developers and publishers more incentive to push for these wholly predatorial business practices, but if we are getting keys through Leagues for the forseeable future I might as well use them on chests with actual content.

Devil's Treasure will cease to drop once the event comes to an end; however you will be able to hang onto all chests that you keep in your inventory, including Devil's Treasure.

Oghamsmith anyway tell the dev team to double check the people who should have key, because some friends who played less then me got 1~2 key and 0 here.
I'm not so **** but i'm ****.

Played around 7-8 matches... haven't seen any player get a key... not just me... but no other players either... what was the drop chance?

It was bugged, they did not drop for anyone. They have been awarded now to those that would have dropped them. I got 3 keys for playing over the weekend. League 2 reward keys have not been awarded yet.

But seriously, whilst I think dropping free keys is good thing, you should change the normal chest contents so that they only contain things like skins (and no not daily reward wheel skins, those are also pants) and unique weapons. No boosters please.
Yes, you're probably going to keep hearing this from the community till it gets changed.

I think they're going to keep hearing a lot more hate towards the chests in general until something gets changed, especially after the keys didn't drop. :( People seem superbly ticked, like rioting in the streets ticked. I think it was just the last straw regarding the chest thing for a lot of people.
