Faction Feud is back and with is come several significant fixes to the feature.
In the latest Update, we addressed the most severe problems with Faction Feud, including the bigger stability problems, and Ghosting. Ghosting is an issue that can cause a player to appear in more Feud Brawls than they're actually in.
Please note, however, that Ghosting MAY likely still occur if players 1. leave a Brawl mid-match, and 2. enter a new Brawl in a different Faction. IF you encounter this issue via an alternate way, please let us know exactly how it occurred so we can investigate the problem.
With these major problems out of the way, we will be able to see if any other persisting problems exist with Faction Feud. We will be monitoring the event and your feedback in order to continue to improve Faction Feud!
A special 5v5 Survivor Series Gauntlet Blitz is happening today! It’s RAW vs Smackdown! Which team will you choose? Each time you join the Gauntlet, you earn points for the team for which you bring Superstars. Bring Smackdown Superstars to battle RAW and earn points for the blue team, and vice versa. Players can pick a side and stick with it, or turn heel and switch at any time.
Whichever team wins, all players will earn a Superstar Gear of that respective team!
Players can bring up to 5 Superstars of either RAW or Smackdown Superstars. The remaining 4 slots will be "blanked out" for the event. Who will you bring to represent your team?
Update 0.21 is coming online for both iOS and Android! It will take several hours to fully propagate in all players' App stores, and here is a brief look at what's new!
We have a few newsworthy items to mention to you today.
Gauntlet Blitz, originally scheduled for this evening will be pushed back to tomorrow afternoon PST to make room for an internal update and ensure it runs smoothly. The Talent Up Event will continue as normal today.
Brand New Update!
Next week we’re releasing a brand new update, which will include new challenging gameplay modes, a brand new look for Mega Superstars, and more! It will also include support for the iPhone X. Watch our Facebook Page for other exciting updates regarding this new content.
Faction Feud Fixes
As mentioned earlier this month, we have several significant fixes coming to Faction Feud with the update next week. These will address Ghosting (players appearing in multiple Feud matches at the same time), and some general instability problems. A special Survivor Series-themed Feud will run next week following the fixes.
November is here and with it comes a host of new activities in the game! Here's an overview of some things you can expect to see:
Faction Feud will contain significant fixes this month! We will be reporting on the specifics in a later post as we get closer to when they go live. These will go live before the next Feud is run.
Since the last Faction Feud, we have isolated a good amount of issues that will be addressed in the near future. We have combed through all of your reports on social and support tickets, and it’s safe to say there are 2 critical issues we’re dealing with: 1. Ghosting, and 2. General Stability. Most other problems (with the exception of post-match freezes) we saw cropping up over this past weekend were likely a product of issue #2. Here is how we plan to attack these issues:
Our QA team was able to reproduce this issue this past Feud, and we later determined that it was a server-side bug caused by several factors. We’ll be devoting additional team resources to tackling it and are hoping to have a fix deployed within the next few weeks.
Last week we saw major improvements in the 1st day of the Feud, but as the event went on, overall performance declined. This was especially apparent during Saturday and Sunday play. We have determined the cause of this issue and have a plan of action in place to address it. Essentially, we will be greatly reducing the amount of processes involved in calculating scores to minimize the amount of data being sent which strains the servers. Instead of the server doing this instantly, it will account for multiple players’ scores at a less-frequent basis. This will cause the leaderboard to refresh the rank fewer times, but improve performance.
This fix is already in progress, but will take a few more weeks until it can fully be deployed. Until then, we will be implementing a temporary fix that should improve the performance for the next Feud.
The team is aware of the post-match freeze affecting players occasionally in the Feud and will be working to pinpoint the cause and repair it.
As mentioned above, we saw multiple reports of strange issues occurring during the Feud, many of which are likely a byproduct of the servers being overburdened. These issues include, menu lag, being kicked from a brawl, etc. Once our next fixes for server stability are deployed to the game, many of these should also disappear. We’ll keep an eye out at that point to investigate any lingering problems.

Bug Fixes & Improvements:
Due to some complications with Faction Feud, the 24-Hour Frightful Friday Feud this week has been postponed to a later date. We have been investigating the issue affecting scores and rewards the past Feud and will be implementing a fix in order to address it. In an attempt to safely postpone the Feud, it had started prematurely for a short time this evening. This has been resolved and the Feud will be removed in several hours. We will therefore be pushing back the 24-Hour Feud to a date after these fixes can be applied. This Feud with the Xavier Woods top prizes will return at a time to be announced soon.
For this weekend, we will have a Blitz with Brains and Striker Tokens, as well as a Talent Up Event.
As for the issues from the past Faction Feud, we have distributed rewards to the Top 100 and are sending out rewards to some Factions that received an incorrect rank. These Factions will be receiving the adjusted difference in the next 24 hours. Our next update (coming next week) will also contain several improvements and more bug fixes to Faction Feud.
We appreciate your patience,
October is next week and we’ve got a lot of exciting activities in store for you! With improvements to VS rewards, a Free Superstar for everyone, brand new Halloween-themed Superstars, and month-long events, October is going to be a blast!
Reward Structure Improvements
Currently, players earn Fame Rewards each week in VS which give a set of class-specific Training Points and Props. Based on feedback we realize that waiting up to 6 weeks for the color TP you might need most isn’t ideal. So starting this Monday, you’ll have a much better opportunity of gaining all the colors each week!
To accomplish this, we will be putting mixed bags of TP from Fame Rewards which will grant the same amounts of TP but in bags of random colors. All other color/class-specific items, such as Shango Curse and Bizarre Fragrance, have been replaced with Standard Toolboxes which grant 3-5 random Props each. Better variety of colored TP, and many more props!
NOTE: With this change, the amount of T-shirts you would win from VS during PPV weeks will be added to the Limited Time Tours. You will earn the same amount overall as before but just in a single location.
Similarly, Leaderboard Rewards will also grant Token Cases so you have a chance at earning items for each class.
Introducing Zombie Superstars!
Zombies are coming to WWE Champions and all players will be able to earn a FREE Kevin Owens “Bite Owens Bite” zombie Superstar! 3 other Limited Edition zombie Superstars will be available for a LIMITED TIME throughout the month in Mega Superstars! Get them before they’re gone!
Month-Long Event & Limited Time Tour
Grab your free Kevin Owens Superstar and earn KO Posters (up to 3 Star Bronze) for him in the month-long Event. Level him up and his moves to earn the milestone rewards and earn a lot of KO TP!*
Players can acquire “Bite Owens Bite” Kevin Owens from the first node in each special Limited Time Tour for the whole month of October. Beat the first node each day for easy KO TP.
Zombies love brains! Earn them in all special Limited Time Tours this month and other activities and exchange them in the Zombie Mega Superstars (Friday-Sunday) all month. We hope your Brain collection attracts some new Zombie Superstars!
Frightful Fridays - 24-Hour Weekend Zombie Activities
Bring your scariest Superstars each Friday this Month and participate in a Frightful Friday Blitz or Feud to earn additional rewards! Each activity will be around for 24 hours and require Zombies and/or scary Superstars. Enter if you dare!
Trick or Treat Community Event
Toward the end of the month we’ll have a special treat for you! Or will you get tricks? “Trick or Treat Bags” will be given out through various activities, and perhaps randomly to some players on our social channels. Open all your bags to see if you get something good!
Costume Party & Free Gear Giveaway!
Performance Improvements & Faction Feud
Last week’s blog outlined an issue affecting performance, specifically in VS and tag team matchups. This issue has been addressed and the fix will be deployed in the coming days! The next major update will also include some additional Faction Feud improvements and fine-tuning.
October is going to be full of awesome things to do! Beyond this, you can expect to see your usual Events, Blitzes and Feuds, and regular Mega Superstars spread out throughout the entire month!
*Editorial Edit: We noticed an error in our messaging regarding the design of the Month-long Event and what you earn by leveling up KO Zombie. Players who enhance him can earn KO Zombie Posters etc. The wording has been adjusted this to better clarify the design. We apologize for the confusion.
