Yesterday we did some server maintenance that made some players unable to connect to the game. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused, we will all wear the helmet of shame to beg for your forgiveness.

We just restarted the servers and hope to have the game working in all regions as soon as possible.

You just received a notice to update the game, it was us updating the servers to hopefully decrease server crashes! :)


Make sure to restart steam and verify the integrity of the game-files.

We know cheating is currently a huge issue. Unfortunately this is not the patch that fixes that but we are very close to having a first line of defense that will be going live before the end of the week.


This patch aims to fix the issues a lot of players have been experiencing with the ring.
We’re adding more time to the end game and increasing the amount of bikes and motorcycles in non-main areas. This should give players a bigger chance against the ring even if you don't jump a high action area. Thank you all for the feedback on patch 8!
Please let us know what you think of the new ring speed.

New regions:
-US_West
-US_East
-AU

(South American servers have been ordered and are on the way)

Changes:
-Made the first ring (Not the one that is already moving when you start, the one after that) start quite a bit later.
-Added a bunch of bike and motorcycle spawns to smaller compounds
-Fixed a bunch of audio bugs ("shoot! shoot!")
-Lowered volume of Tripoloski
-Added the names of the two new areas to the map interface
-Fixed issue where the Two Shot would bug out if you put scopes on it.
-Hopefully fixes issue that was causing blurry visuals after the first wall is placed
-Limited amount of parrots that can be thrown per second
-Made it impossible for hackers to spawn parrots on other players.

Performance:
-Optimized inactive cars
-Dead players are now removed after 10 seconds

A joke’s a joke, and the RPS manifesto is ambivalent about jokes, but now Totally Accurate Battlegrounds is getting serious. The battle royale FPS which started as an April Fool’s joke by Clustertruck developers LandFall Games, a Plunkbut with wonky physics, has switched from being free to costing $5, and now LandFall plan to spruce it up a little. Totally Accurate Battlegrounds racked up over three million downloads in its first four days, see, and remains one of the most-played games on Steam – with more players in-game now than once-mighty royaler H1Z1.
