    Item Collections
    Four new items have been added to the shop for players to complete their collections. The items can be purchased using nuggets and bonds.

    Adventure statistics
    In the statistic section of the achievement window you will now be able to find some adventure-related statistics.

    Adventure skill balancing
    Some adventure abilities appeared to be too weak, so they were chosen very seldom by players. After a lot of testing we have strengthened them as follows:
    • Barrel Roll was buffed with a longer duration, but also a higher cooldown time
    • Inspire was buffed from 5% damage, increased to 20%
    • Eagle Eye was buffed from 50% higher accuracy to 75% and from 20% critical hit chance to 50%
    Elimination of Red Team advantages
    In comparison to the blue team, the players in the red team had a couple of advantages in each adventure, which lead to a significantly higher winning chance. We have changed some of these drawbacks:
    • It was not possible to shoot at players on the mill when standing on the bank, but players on the saloon were able to shoot at enemies on the mill. This resulted in a small advantage for team red, because usually its players keep the saloon in the first rounds. We have slightly reduced the obstacle of the carriage's handle in the near of the bank in order to tackle this issue.
    • In each round, team red had the first move and was benefited therefore, because team blue did not stand a chance of winning races around buildings. We have changed how the action queue is computed: Now the first move of each round is alternate between the red and the blue team.

    Fashionable handbag dropped from all jobs
    The fashionable handbag, one of our new collection items, could be found at every job by mistake. This is now fixed, but already obtained handbags will not be removed.

    Hash mismatch fixed
    The issue regarding the famous "hash mismatch" error message which did not stop to appear after losing the connection to the adventure server is now fixed.

    We hope you like the changes this update brings to the game. As always we are looking forward to your feedback!

    Best regards
    Your The West Team
