In our Halloween Dev Log, we talked about how our team is committed and focused on optimizing the Lobby and the Arena for both Rift and Quest players. Part of this process includes updating and optimizing our materials on all decorations, props, posters, and geo in both the Lobby and in the Arena. Due to this meticulous rework, and the need to both add and test additional materials (like Ghosting, Muting, etc), we unfortunately will not be able to do the full Winter Village Lobby this year. However similar to Halloween, we will once again be scheduling events for players to unlock special winter decals and emotes.
To top it all off, it appears a malfunctioning Echo Unit has stolen the Winter Village props and decorations. Echo Units that log in December 20th, 2019 through January 3rd, 2020 and play a public match of Echo Arena or Echo Combat will be able to unlock a new decal and emote for the holiday season, including all our winter customizations from previous years. Be sure to unlock your customizations before they’re stolen too!
Thank you all for your love and support, and for always sharing your honest feedback with us too.
