  1. Hello Escapers, Today we would like to tell you about the current stage in development of Escape from Tarkov. The efforts of the team in the near future will be predominantly focused on solving issues and bugs, which requires careful work and utmost attention. The EFT project has advanced beyond the Beta barrier and its development now enters a new active phase. While collecting information from community support, as well as observing the activity of streamers and bloggers, we have decided to give up the planned update that was scheduled for release at the end of September, and take the time to resolve the major issues players are facing. In other words, we have decided to raise the priority of tasks that deal with performance problems and fix old and serious bugs, completely relying on working with community. At the moment, we have done many things that were not planned to be included into patch that was scheduled for release by the end of September. For instance, we’ve fixed problems with sound effects modified damage system for destroyed body parts, improved character movement physics, enhanced network synchronization and fixed matchmaker issues, made balancing changes in the player spawn system, loot, trading system, introduced various optimizing changes, including use of the RAM, made adjustments aimed at improving the gameplay quality and much more. Beside all that, we continue to add new features and content. In the next few updates, look forward to blind-fire functionality, buttstock handling, snaplights and underbarrel grenade launcher. Moreover, we plan to add a new set of weapon attachments, AKM, a new trader, equipment, items, and quests. Also, the second part of the Shoreline location is now in the final stage of production, and there is a new location already in active development - Interchange with large shopping mall. The main objective of the Escape from Tarkov developer team is to implement the gameplay as designed and to ensure its high quality not only in visual aspects, but also in terms of optimizing the performance and accuracy of network operation. Needless to say, we also haven't forgotten about cheaters, detecting and banning them on daily basis now. At the moment, about 1400 dishonest players were permanently banned by the in-game anticheat software. The next major stage for us will be the start of the Open Beta. Soon, we’ll reveal a more detailed description of what it is going to include. Thank you for your support! Battlestate Games Team.

  2. Streamers ?

    Stalking and harassment are all part of things forbidden by the terms of service, though only PUBG will actively ban for for stream sniping as it counts as harassment. The streamer you are watching also probably plays PUBG, hence their bots warning
  3. Adding game to my non-steam game library

    #Cleaned Stop acting like children and derailing the conversation. OP was asking how to add EFT as a non-STEAM game, not when it was or if it HAD to be on Steam right now. Stay on topic and stop being toxic towards each other.
  4. Expanding Factions ,possible idea.

  9. Hello Escapers! As you may have noticed, there's been a change on our forums that you may have noticed! It is quite hard to miss! Formerly, we have a system of Reputation, where you clicked Give Rep to provide Reputation to posts you liked, agreed with and contributed to ongoing discussions. Unfortunately, that system was caught by Scav Raiders and unfortunately was not able to make it back to the Hideout. We shall drink to his memory and valiant service. With the new Reaction system, you can react in more than one way to a post with EFT-Themed reactions! Let's take a look at the currently available reactions/likes - I like this post! Great job! - Thanks! This was a great post - Woah that's a hot post! - Brrr. That's cold man - What? - Aww man. That's too bad - I like this, man! These new reactions will create a fun way to react to discussions and contributions seen around the Escape From Tarkov Forums! Be sure to use them where-ever you wish to express your feelings about a discussion or contributing post! French translation of the news can be found here. Thanks to Emissary @AGN_YuD Czech translation can be found here. Thanks to Emissary @PugMonk Portuguese translation can be found here.

  11. Hello Escapers! As part of my duties as Jr Community Manager, I have been tasked as the Official Emissary Coordinator. What is an Emissary Coordinator? My main goal will be coordinating with all Emissaries in regards to community outreach, engagement and interaction amongst the various different player bases. This will involve players of all nations, from France to Korea, from Holland to Portugal, from Spain to Turkey, etc etc. The main goal will be engagement, coordination of information to the userbase (YOU), and organizing giveaways, prizes and events throughout the course of development. Specifics will come in the future, but engaging with the player-base is a core value to any game development, and if you are not having fun, we are not having fun. Some of you have looked up and asked, "ArmaSwiss. When can we test the game so we can see if we like it!" To this I say, soon-to-be Escapers, Soon! With careful planning and nudging, we can crafted a way to allow winners of giveaways to be given a glimpse, a taste, a touch of Tarkov to see if it captures their attention as it has captured many of you. I will be aiming to start dispersment of these 'Beta Keys' in upcoming community giveaways and contests in the future. Already own a Escape From Tarkov and would like a friend to experience the edge of your seat, heart racing experience you feel when playing? Perhaps you shall win a key and give them a chance to dip their toe into Tarkov. Been apart of our forum community but just not sure about investing in the Development of Tarkov? Want a taste of the action to solidify your decision? Perhaps you can win a key and see what everyone is talking about! These are some of the ways I'd love to open the experience of Tarkov to new and old players, and I would be honored to help bring them to you, our players. Have an idea for a fun giveaway or contest? Be sure to let me know. Community Engagement will be a core focus of mine in this position, and ensuring our players of all languages, receive equal information and communication in the Development of Escape From Tarkov. The Czech translation is here! Thanks to Emissary @PugMonk

  21. Upcoming Giveaways and Contests

    Since character data is tied to account, if they purchased a pre-order, technically it should? But I'm not working on the backend so......dunno. SHOULD Can't sell them. They expire in 7 days. Anyone caught selling them is going to be demoted and permanently barred from ever holding a position. And it'll take a week for people to realize theyve been scammed and file a Dispute.
