    We are currently planning on applying the patch to version 2.35 on Monday the 14th of March. Please keep in mind and that the date, time and content of the patch are subject to change.


    The Fort Battle Championship has ended!

    We congratulate the Polish team for winning our first Fort Battle Championship! Contratulations also to Hungary and Germany for coming in second and third!

    Of course we also want to give a big "Thank you!" to all players who participated. Please make sure to leave feedback in our forum so that we can make the next one even better!

    All players will receive their prices shortly (see below). There will also be a little something for every participant, which sadly didn't make it into this patch but will be added to your inventories in the near future.

    Easter is coming!

    On Wednesday the 16th of March at 10:00am our Easter Showdown event will start.

    As in the last years the bandit gang is back and it's your job to drive them out of town! The bandits can be duelled every eight hours. Duelling them costs nuggets or eggs which you can collect by doing actions in the game like jobs or duels. You can also reset the cooldown timer using nuggets or eggs. If you lose a duel you will not loose any health points, so don't worry about being KO'ed by them!

    Winning against the bandits grants you a chance to win several items, including our new event sets. You can also win an exclusive event set for winning in a row. Every win increases the streak by 1. You need 120 consecutive wins to get all items. So be sure to have enough eggs in reserve to use a sneak shot should you loose a duel!

    At the end of the event the player with the highest streak on each world will receive the unique "Tribal artifacts" weapons set.

    Additionally we implemented a few changes in regards to last year's event:

    Tactics vs. Appearance
    We implemented a small change to the Easter event duels. Instead of being completely mirrored, the gang members now use the tactics value while the player uses the appearance value.

    Event currency sending cooldown reduced
    The cooldown for sending event currency to friends has been reduced to 23 hours so that it's easier to send eggs to your friends every day.

    The Easter Bunny's hide
    To complete the achievement "The Easter Bunny's hide", players were asked to wear the items from the Easter bunnies set. The quest is now available again and players will find these items in the UBP shop during Easter.

    Counting Crows
    All items from the Crow's Valentine's event set are now upgradeable as well as auctionable.

    Watch a movie every day!
    The daily task to watch a movie in the theatre should now be available again on all language versions.

    New country belts!
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    We added a number of additional country belts. You will find them in the shop shortly. Sorry that it took so long Belgium. And Israel. And Austria. And Japan. And ...


    Country belt changes
    We adjusted the statistics of the country belts slightly. They now feature a level based bonus and are usable from level 1. The new stats are:

    +0.015 Strength (per level)
    +0.015 Dexterity (per level)
    +0.015 Mobility (per level)
    +0.015 Charisma (per level)
    +0.1 Appearance (per level)

    The Confederate and Indian belt got similar changes but still have their level requirement and additionally gained a work point bonus.


    Added a hint on how to find the three eggs
    The Easter questline in which players have to find the three eggs for Maya was confusing for some players. Since they missed the quest "Save the Saloon, part 2", the quest was showing up for them but the quest locations did not. We added a hint to the quest so that players know how to proceed.


    Dynamic quest timeframes for Easter questlines
    We implemented a new way to handle our Easter quests. The start/end times are now set automatically. This way we no longer need to manually adjust these every year.

    The quest "Easter" from the "Little things" questline (quest ID 165) now runs from 72 hours (3 days) before Easter Sunday (midnight) until 96 hours (4 days) afterwards. The new timeframe for 2016 is: 17.03.2016 at 00:00 until 31.03.2016 at 00:00.

    The questline "Easter" (base and repeatable) now start 72 hours (3 days) before Easter Sunday (midnight) and end 432 hours (18 days) after Easter Sunday. The new timeframe for 2016 is: 17.03.2016 at 00:00 until 14.04.2016 at 00:00.

    The questgroup "Finding Mister Easter Bunny" now runs from Easter Sunday (midnight) until 336 hours (14 days) afterwards. The new timeframe for 2016 is: 17.03.2016 at 00:00 until 10.04.2016 at 00:00.


    [​IMG]

    Nutcracker exchange
    Due to a configuration error some players received a second nutcracker during Christmas instead of a skillpoint. We will run a script after the update to retroactively add the missing skillpoint to these players.

    Christmas Bounty
    When opening the Advent calendar in January (or later) players got a bounty on your head. Now you will only get a marble for opening it late.

    More tomatoes!
    Previously it was not possible to consume more than one fresh tomato salad. Now you can eat as many as you want!

    Fixed crafting limit
    It should no longer possible to exceed the maximum crafting level of 700 by batch crafting a large amount of green recipes.


    [​IMG]

    Fort Battle Championship Player titles
    The player titles "Fort Battle Master", "Fort Battle Champion" and "Fort Battle Expert" have been added to the game and will be added to the top three team's players shortly.

    Fort Battle Championship Medals
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The players from the three winning teams will also receive a medal. The current stats are preliminary and might be adjusted in the near future, depending on the testing currently going on on our beta worlds.


    Romeo is now foolish at the same date
    The base and repeatable "One foolish Romeo" are now accessible during the same timeframe (14.02. 10:00am until 03.03. 00:00am). This fix was rolled out with version 2.34.2 already but was missing from the changelog.


    We hope you like the changes this update brings to the game. As always we are looking forward to your feedback in the discussion thread!

    Best regards
    Your The West Team

    Known issues:
    The headgear item from the Shawnee set is not something worn by Shawnee indians (actually it's from the Tlingit). The graphic will be exchanged with something more fitting.
    The new country belts are not available in the shop yet. These will be added manually.
    Currenlty the possible Egg rewards for the first two stages of the Easter duels are wrong. These will be adjusted (650 for stage 1, 1500 for stage 2)
    The "Easter" questline (base and repeatable) will not start 7 days ahead as usual.
    The changelog for v2.35 is missing ingame

    The country belts are unfortunately delayed, as there is a misconfiguration on our part. We hope to be able to offer them soon, but as it requires another update, it will likely be early next week. We ask for your understanding.

    Kind regards,

    Dear community,

    shortly we will apply a patch containing the following fixes:

    Adjusted difficulty for bandit duels
    Due to the changes in the event the bandit duels became a bit too hard. We adjusted the difficulty to have players having to use the bribe function less often.

    More eggs for 15 seconds jobs
    15 second jobs now yield slightly more eggs. This is also the new default for all future events.

    Event currency sending cooldown adjustments
    Changed the cooldown for sending event currency to friends to 23 hours for all future events.

    Bribing costs issue fixed
    Fixed an issue with bribing ("Sneaky Shot") costing too many eggs. This feature now deducts 500 eggs, as intended.

    Fort Battle Medals graphics adjusted
    The Medals stuck slightly out of the boxes in the player inventory screen when equiped.

    Increased the amount of eggs for Fort Battles
    The amount of eggs players receive for Fort Battles was slightly increased to make the earnings closer to other gameplay tasks .

    Easter event runtime adjusted
    Due to the bribing issue the runtime of the event (on beta) has been extended by one week (same runtime as live markets now).

    Event Set Balancing
    After receiving feedback we did some adjustments to the event clothing sets' bonuses. We will adjust the post above with the new values after the patch has been applied.

    Crow set now sellable
    The Crow set from the Valentine's Day event is now sellable to traders which also allows players to see the sell price for market auctions.

    Best regards
    Your The West Team

    Today we have installed a new version on our Beta servers. The changes included can be found in the changelog below.

    [​IMG]

    New questline "The history of The West" (this is NOT a repeatable questline)
    There is a new, short birthday questline starting on the 30th of April (00:00am). There are eight quests, one for each year, centered around a feature implemented that year.

    In these quests you can get some new exclusive items. For finishing the final quest an achievement is being awarded. The quest runs until the 21st of May (00:00am).

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    A little birthday present
    For the 8th birthday of The West all players will be able to redeem a special consumable item to their accounts. The item will give you a nice bonus for your upcoming adventures.

    Keep your eyes open for an ingame notification on how to get it.

    [​IMG]

    Easter event items now upgradable/auctionable
    The Detective's, Shawnee and Wanderer's sets are now auctionable as well as upgradable.

    Changed Shawnee headband graphics
    As many of you have mentioned the hat in the Shawnee set was actually from the Tlingit tribe. We changed the graphic to a more appropriate item.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Missing image in interstitial
    Returning players received a special welcome message. A graphic in there was missing, which has been fixed.

    Earning money in your sleep
    Under certain circumstances it was posible to earn dollars while asleep. This is no longer possible.

    Achievement alignment
    The achievement "Phantom of the theater" was not aligned properly in the achievement overview. This has been fixed.

    Server becoming unresponsive after fort battles
    We implemented additional changes regarding an issue causing server problems at the end of (big) fort battles.

    Changes to "The West has a birthday!" questline
    To fix a bug with the questline we slightly adjusted how it works. Now you will be able to find the first five candles as soon as the timeframe starts. But from the sixth candle on you have to accept the respecive quest to find them.

    Fixed an issue with the "Finding Mr. Easter Bunny" questline
    The drops for this questline were not identical with the quest runtime. This has been adjusted.

    We hope you like the changes this update brings to the game. As always we are looking forward to your feedback!

    Best regards

    We have updated our servers today with some backend improvements and bugfixes. These changes won't make changes to the game itself, but they do need an update to go into effect.

    Also, tomorrow we will introduce a new quest line to the game. Will you be able to finish this quest line? :up:

    As always, we're looking for your feedback! Please let us know what you think by leaving a comment in the discussion thread

    Kind regards,
    Your The West Team

    We plan to implement update 2.35.6 on the Beta servers tomorrow. Please note that the date and content of the update are subject to change.

    [​IMG]

    New quest-line "Life of a Retiree"
    It is time to take some well deserved vacations! There is a new quest-line made of 8 quests were you will enjoy the life of a retiree for a while...

    The quest will be available to all players with level 126 or more. For finishing the final quest an achievement is being awarded.

    Easter items 2016

    The set items from Easter 2016 are now tradeable:

    • Shawnee's clothing and weapons
    • Detective's clothing and weapons
    • Wanderer's clothing and weapons

    Changing the skin color of avatars
    From now on it's possible to change the skin color of your in-game avatar.


    [​IMG]

    Fixed quest book issue regarding the "Completed" tab
    Players with a lot of done quests couldn't open the "Completed" tab of the quest book.

    It was possible to equip two avatar accessories or to end up without any avatar showing up
    Some combinations of accessories were possible (e.g. glasses and eye patch). As it it's intended to be able to wear 2 avatar accessories it has been fixed.

    It was also possible to end up without any avatar if impossible parameters have been set. This has been fixed as well.

    Changed quest access requirements for "The town drenched in fog"

    To be able to access this quest players now have to finish the quest "Showdown" instead of the quest "Tomorrow's widow (Angel of love)".

    Looking for towns and players missed some levels to choose
    By looking for players or towns it was only possible to choose a level up to 120 instead of 150 in the drop-down menu.


    We hope you like the changes this update brings to the game. As always we are looking forward to your feedback!
