Who gets caught in that? Players who had a solo placement on the boards but did some party play and thus lost their streak. The post acknowledges outright that it’s an error, but it’s the fairest possible way to correct the issue and that it’s early enough for players to be able to recover their places. Since the majority of solo entries on the board have only done the Delve content solo, it’s going to only effect some players, but at least the team is acknowledging that effect as humbly as possible.
There are other bug fixes too, of course. It’s just the one big one that’s most notable.
The realm is currently down while we deploy Patch 3.4.1b. Downtime is typically 15-30 minutes. In the meantime, please check out the patch notes below. Thank you for your patience! pic.twitter.com/2yZ8cV2TxR
