Patch 5.4 has now moved from Open Beta to Live! We are very excited to bring these changes to the full community and thank you to everyone who participated in the Open Beta. Your feedback and assistance has been essential to ensuring our desync rates have improved and we really appreciate your patience as we continue to work together. The new discussion thread can be found here and we look forward to hearing what you think and collecting your feedback!

Keep your eyes peeled for news of the 5.5 Open Beta, which we’ll announce soon!

The following items have been addressed in this 5.4 Live update:

Stability Fixes:

  • Loading into game should no longer desync if a player has not received the correct update to their World Time setting.
