TGIF! Game Updates for August 21, 2020

Happy Friday everyone! We’ve got lots of updates for you this week, so let’s get into what’s new this past week in gaming news:

In-Game Content

New Stained Glass Crates are now available! Make sure to pick up a Master Three-Pack for a *guaranteed* Legendary item!

A mainstay of the Texas crime scene, the Galveston Don is not going to give up his hard-won power without a fight! Mobsters in the Houston Location can now challenge this Co-op Boss and partake in the Minigame. Crafting will be out next week to tie off this Location.

Raid Event Heal Slider and Participation Goal

With ZS this week, we’ve made a couple changes to the Raid Event to make Healing a bit more beneficial and change a longstanding but kind of confusing indicator.

First off, the Heal button now has a slider similar to the Attack buttons. You can allocate anywhere from 20 to 100 Energy - provided you have more than 100 Energy allocated via Skill Points- and Heal that entire amount in one go! Hitting the 1,000 Heal minimum for the Participation Goal should now be a breeze.

Speaking of the Participation Goal, there’s now a progress bar on the Raid tab and the Raid Boss itself showing how close you are to meeting the minimum to receive an item drop when the Raid is killed.

Raid veterans might remember that we used to use something very similar when the Raids first launched almost five years ago, but we moved to a text indicator some time back. 

While the goal of the text indicator was to prompt players to do more beyond the minimum to hopefully receive a Superior drop, in reality it was kind of confusing and a little discouraging, especially if you saw a lot of “Impossible” indicators on your page.

Let us know if you have any questions or feedback about these Raid changes in Support!

Update to Stripe Payments on KanoPlay and Armor

One final note for the week, we recently made some updates to Stripe, which is the payment processing service we use on the above networks.

In addition to it looking slightly different, this update also enables the use of Apple Pay and Google Pay for supported devices.

If you play on either of these networks and have any questions or concerns about payment via Stripe, please contact us in Support!
