So, Update 11.8 has just been deployed so here are some of the highlights from this weekly update:
We have now added an Inventory picker to places where having a full view of your Inventory is essential. We understand Trading is a big part of WarZone, so we wanted to make this experience better.
Firstly, in the trading Window, the Inventory has gone, but there is now a button to add items
This then brings up a mini Inventory with full filtering and searching capability.
Simply click on the item to use it.
We have also use the same window on the gifting feature, so it makes it easier to send gifts to other players instead of having to go through a massive combo dropdown list.
Store UI Updates
We have now refined the navigation at the top of the store, the important buttons are visible, with other options now available under a dropdown
Activate Key is a new feature. This will be first used by everyone attending Meetup 2017. Entering a code can do a variety of things such as give an item. We will start using this for radio and social media competitions.
Gold VIP+ can now specify a custom name to use rather than using their Steam name:
That's about it. Change logs will be up shortly.
As several of you may have noticed already the Twitter and Facebook accounts have been revived and will be kept active by Myself & @TheLonelyBunney. Currently i shall be posting regular updates on what is going on with the community and announcing radio shows. However in the very near future there will definitely be some Social Media exclusive giveaways. To ensure you are aware of these giveaways i highly recommend following and liking both the Twitter and Facebook pages. Once i have time to catch up with @TheLonelyBunney As he is extremely busy with work currently we shall increase our focus onto Twitch and Youtube, We have heard from several players that they would be interested in a Twitch community ( Some place people can find all streamers streaming WarZone servers ) We shall also be uploading future game nights, prank calls and occasional community fun sessions for example Cards Against Humanity. On top of this in the upcoming weeks i shall be working out the criteria for Player Of The Week. I created a post a week or so ago asking for suggestions and i shall be working on these to publish the exact criteria and rewards given. I shall release more information on this soon.
All Social Media can be located below or on the home page of the website.
