Escapers, here are the patch notes for update 0.12.9, Planned for tomorrow, December 24th:

This patch doesn't justify enough to declare a wipe.

I'm guessing there will be wipe again with streets of tarkov update.


Can we just get this patch without one?

What's the point I mean look at the changes there is literally no need for it


Is this x-mass joke?

Well, that sucks.  I don't like the wipe with no notice thing...  At least give us a week or two heads up before a wipe.  

I'm not looking forward to totally starting over from level 1.  Seems like a pain in the ass, to be honest.  Not really happy about this.  And on Christmas?  Why??

cause its been way too long without a wipe, and a map rework and new guns is going to probably the biggest update we will see in the next 3 months or so, so its a good time to wipe

Awesome news, but any hint at when we can expect it? 

The plan is to drop the 12.9 update tomorrow in the morning MSK time.

That is really for the DEVs to decide, not the players. With the amount of changes that affect how the game plays, specially the changes to how weapon modding affects the stats of the weapons then this is more then justified in my opinion.

The bug fix I'm most excited about: 

Fixed bots hanging behind stationary weapons.

You have no idea how many times I've died to raiders/scavs on Customs chilling behind the LMGs on New Construction (barely visible).

The bug fix I'm least excited about: 

- Fixed a bug where Killa could not hear the enemies approaching from behind.

I guess this means I won't be killing Killa anymore...
