  • Items not showing up, battle bonus not working

    For the last few games none of my Items, and for that matter none of the items of my friends are showing up ingame although they are equipped in the Loadout.

    The Battle Bonus also does not show as equipped and therefore no additional points are awarded while the timer on the battle bonus is still running out (this is the thing bugging me the most).

    Game IDs:



    Will the lost battle points be awarded later or the bonus extended?

                This is what happens when the GC is offline, it will come back eventually

                  When the back end servers go down (what we call the GC 'game coordinator') the client won't properly reflect items or battle bonuses. However, when it returns you should usually get any drops or battle points you were due. I intend to fix the backpack status messaging soon so you are told this in the client.

                  When the GC is down you can't wear cosmetics because it's responsible for validating with the game server what cosmetics you own. When the GC dies, the game server doesn't know what you actually own.
