We are turning off some Stable servers

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

we need more servers for our internal testing, so we decided to switch some Stable servers to our Internal branch.

These servers are not available anymore:

  • DayZ SE 4-059 - Hosted by Fragnet.net - Persistence Enabled 60 slots 185.62.206.165:2302
  • DayZ SE 4-040 - Hosted by Fragnet.net - Persistence Enabled 60 slots 185.62.206.165:2402
  • DayZ SE 4-043 - Hosted by Fragnet.net - Persistence Enabled 60 slots 185.62.206.165:2502
  • DayZ SE 4-042 - Hosted by Fragnet.net - Persistence Enabled 60 slots 185.62.206.165:2602

We are sorry if you have any tents or barrels on these servers, but it can help to release a new update earlier :).

Have a nice day(z), Survivors!

So does that mean 0.63 comes this month?

the livestream was in the beginning of march and when I heared "weeks" then it should probably release this month (6-8 weeks after livestream), otherwise eugen should have said "months" right ... ?

But netherless keep up the great work devs, you can do this :)!

Best wishes, Raptor.

"we expect to have more than one of these stress tests happening in the next couple of weeks, so you might get a chance to hop in early and test the game in a limited capacity.

Our main goal with stress tests is to test server load and see the number of players we can handle on one server. These stress test can both happen very often, or there might be some delay between them. "

Nah...All your speculation is off the mark, guys...

They shut down 4 more servers so the money saved can go towards hiring another person to help design and model the banana holsters!

It is curious that they need more servers, though..in all seriousness....as they did not mention if it was CLE or another system that required that many instances of servers...

I thought they were just getting around to "stress testing" single instances with MAX population....

Oh well...another Wednesday without so much as a brief "Hi All, here is an OFFICIALLY updated .63 list...and here are a couple screenshots to drool/speculate over"....sigh.

Dare to Dream, Philbur...Dare to Dream.

"Survivors, since a full 100% of our two-member communications team got stuck at the Heathrow airport , we won’t be able to post a Status Report today. Apologies for breaking our schedule, we’ll get back on track next Tuesday"

Found this on Twitter...

Am I late to the party, or did they forget to post this on the Forums?

Yep....I am late to the Party, it seems... Sorry about that.

      Will DayZ be released on consoles? Yes, Xbox One version will be out this year (2018) in the Xbox Game Preview program. We are also working on a PlayStation 4 version and want to provide more details about that soon!
       
      Can you give us some modding tools already, goddamnit?! Not right now, we can't. There are ultimately two main reasons for that: we're simply not ready to legitimately support modding until we have a solid foundation in what is a game functional on an elementary level. We also need that game to be in YOUR hands and we need you to be able to run your own servers. That will not happen before 0.63 hits Stable. In addition to that, we're also still evaluating how far along will DayZ be moddable, and how we can best support modders with all the necessary modding tools. 
       
      How long do we need to wait for the 0.63 Experimental? We want to play it so bad! I know, we want to let you play it too! Right now though, it just really needs more love from the DayZ Dev Team. It's not fun to play yet. All the teams are working like devils now, trust me - I am sitting right next to them in the office, I can see it all happening and I want to play it with the community as bad as everyone. But 0.63 still needs more time!
       
      Will the cost of DayZ servers be reduced with the BETA release? Yes. In future, anyone will be able to host their own servers on their own terms, as we want to release the DayZ Server Files with BETA. Maybe not right with the first BETA build, but definitely during BETA.
      Additionally, we want to provide a Linux version of the DayZ Server Files, and that should further cut the costs of running a DayZ server. While we don't have direct control over the pricing offered by our selected server providers at the moment, the Linux Server Files should also lead to noticeable cost reductions with these providers. 
       
      Will the performance of the game be better in BETA or in the future? Optimizations of performance in DayZ are a continuous process, but we can definitely say that the game performance in BETA will be better than the current performance in 0.62 Stable. How much better depends on specific hardware. Besides optimizations of the rendering pipeline, we have rewritten multiple systems to utilize more CPU cores, we've implemented double buffering for rendering and changed some of the synchronous operations to asynchronous (which allowed further parallelization of those operations). All of these changes have a positive impact on the framerate in the game, especially client-side framerate.
       
      Do you have any plans for new buildings? Yes, we already have some new buildings on the Northwest Airfield in 0.63 and more buildings are planned.
       
      Are you developing DayZ for Xbox One X only? No, we’ll be releasing on all Xbox One consoles, and on PlayStation 4 as well!
       
      How about the frame rates on Xbox One X? It’s all work in progress, but we’re already peaking at 50-60 FPS in 1080p on Xbox One X, and we plan to support 4K@30 FPS. We’ll see where we end up though!
       
      Will there be cross-platform between platforms? That’s unlikely - while it’s perfectly viable from the technology perspective, we’d rather not mix PC and console players because it would cause a noticeable disbalance in gameplay.
       
      Will we ever be able to use the train tracks? A Draisine aka Bogie would fit perfectly.  We would love to use the train tracks in some way, that is ultimately the reason why we connected the railway around Chernarus. We don't know if it will be draisines, but we want to make something happen in future. However, before that happens, ground and aerial vehicles are more important for us.
       
      Will Ponchos get added to the game? We can't add full blown ponchos because of their length. It currently isn't possible to have any long clothes in-game, because of clipping through the legs of the character. If we would add any ponchos, it would be just short ones. For example look at the length of the lab coat.
       
      Is it planned to redesign most houses so "fake doors" will actually be open for new rooms? We don't want to open these doors because of a possible performance impact. Instead, doors that are not openable in 0.63 now have a clear visual indication that a player can't open them. See the screenshot below.

       
      Are there any underground structures/bunkers/mines/cave systems planned? No, underground locations are not planned for now. We are missing proper support from the engine side. While there is a way to achieve underground locations even under the current tech (as seen in some older versions of DayZ), they usually have a severe impact on the landscape and visuals (both surroundings and inside).
       
      How safe will future bases be? How will you find a middle of getting in to easy or to hard? No base will be impenetrable. How fast it will be conquered depends on its defense, which can have varying degrees of protection. Even a locked item can be lost if someone makes enough effort to get it.
       
      What kind of water vehicles will we see? Floating platforms possible? Wooden boats? A whole set of water vehicles is something we want to do in future, like wooden boats for example. We are thinking about craftable ones too, but that's really looking at a more long term future. Submarines aren't planned.
       
      Will there be more crafting options involving improvised weapons? Grenade arrows, flaming arrows, etc? We'd like to have some form of improvised weapons in the game, but we can't tell you more right now.
       
      With the new engine and beta, will FINALLY the cost to rent a DayZ server be reduced? Yes. In future, anyone will be able to host their own servers on their own terms, as we want to release the DayZ Server Files with BETA. Maybe not right with the first BETA build, but definitely during BETA.
      Additionally, we want to provide a Linux version of the DayZ Server Files, and that should further cut the costs of running a DayZ server. While we don't have direct control over the pricing offered by our selected server providers at the moment, the Linux Server Files should also lead to noticeable cost reductions with these providers.
       
      Will it be possible to reanimate a dead body? No, it won't be possible.
       
      Do you plan to add more interactions with the environment? Will we be able to lay in beds and sit on benches, clean/inspect guns at the fireplace and similar? Yes, we are planning interactions with an environment like sitting on benches or laying on beds.But it's not a priority by any means.
       
      Are you planning to create a much bigger variety of different houses so we could have cities look more unique and not see house multiple time each city? Yes, we would like to introduce variants (varied in colors, damage, interior and overgrowth vegetation) for commonly used models. More tests are needed to see the overall impact on performance.
       
      Do we get a Guitar as a melee weapon and as instrument we can play? We don't have it in plans now but we would like to have something like this to enrich social interactions.
       
      What about digging a grave to bury a friend? What about false graves to hide your stash in it?  Yes, these are planned.
       
      Will there be different color spray paint, like pink, purple, orange, red...etc? Will there be possibility to spray your weapons and items with colors and patterns? Yes, procedural coloring is still planned.
       
      Is PC your primary platform?  Yes, it absolutely is our primary platform. Every piece of new content, every feature, every new bit of technology always gets into the PC version first. Both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 run only what already exists on PC. Ultimately any development progress made now is always implemented on PC first.
       
      Should we be worried about DayZ being on consoles?  No! Quite the contrary: we need to squeeze every frame, and every possible line of code optimization out of DayZ in order to make it run well on consoles. This massively contributes to the overall improvements of the PC build. Exploring new platforms with DayZ also opens more possibilities to cooperate with different partners - if we did not make DayZ on Xbox, it would be harder for us to visit you in person or events, for example.
       
      Is it going to slow down PC development? No! Remember, PC development is console development. It's not two different things. There is, of course, some amount of work associated with specific platform support and bug fixing, mostly in programming and QA, but we're not taking the time of any developers that are critical for reaching our Experimental, Stable and 1.0 goals for PC.

      Latest Development news from Eugen, small teasers of the upcoming changes to radios and other VoIP devices, as well as the final particle effects for gunshots, and also a nice summary of our trip to PAX East! It's not Tuesday, but it's still Status Report time, so let's read!

      Dev Update/Eugen

      Dear DayZ players.
      All of us here are both playing and tweaking the version for the first Stress Test. You might be asking why it's not out yet, and how on earth we are enjoying it and not sharing that with you? :). The current state of the build, although fun and quite consistent, is still a bit unstable. And what I mean by unstable? In the worst gunfights with large numbers of players and looting, we can still see at least up to 10 different crashes averaging in up time of less than an hour. We fixed about 500 bugs so far for this Stress Test alone, and there is about 50 left. About 10 of those are crashes that have been plaguing our most recent internal playtests. The good news is that we were finally able to debug the reasons behind these, and are working on fixes as you read this.

      Quick look at the issues that need fixing for 0.63 Experimental as of this afternoon (not including features that still need to be implemented).
      Click to Enlarge
      Once these fixes are confirmed, and if nothing else pops up (usually does, but fingers crossed!), we will evaluate the state of the build again and start with Stress Testing. We are as anxious as you to get this ball rolling :).
      Now for the work invested into things that are not launching with either Stress Tests or with the first Experimental build: there are about 1000 bugs fixed so far for Experimental and we are doing some heavy work on UI visuals and functionality to go beyond the basics needed to develop on the new engine. Jumping has got into the game with its first iteration and will be followed by climbing later as we polish animations and possible edge cases where players get stuck.
      On the notion of having other means of movement rather than walking and running, we are still working on 0.63 vehicles, and also the first helicopter iterations for internal testing. These are still heavy work in progress as vehicles, base building, and several other features are still waiting for a commit (= implementation to the main game code) of technology that we have mentioned a couple of times: enabling hierarchy between entities in the game. We will move on to that commit once we confirm that there are no larger issues during Stress Tests.
      Just to give you some scope (since I started using numbers) over the years, we have tracked around 30 000 issues and resolved about 25 000 of them, where resolving means that some have become irrelevant on their own either due to change of tech or design (Expired, Won't fix, Duplicate, As Designed and other resolution types in the chart below except for Done or Fixed). Part of the remaining unresolved issues is also related to post 1.0 content and features:

      A quick look at the issues that need fixing for 0.63 Experimental as of this afternoon (not including features that still need to be implemented).
      I'm excited about what's to come with the first stress test and feedback that we can work with. I'll be there trying to survive there with you! :)

      Dev Update/Jan
      Hello everybody!
      Voice communication is something we haven't really talked about for some time. So I'm here to introduce you to the changes we've done on the gameplay side. But since this is my first Status Report, I'll start with a small introduction. My name is Jan Huòka (on the internets, I go by the nickname Zoidy) and I work on DayZ as a Gameplay Programmer specializing on networking - but I also worked on the new damage system, login/logout process and a bunch of other things.
      The main goal of these changes was to make the communication as seamless as possible. As soon as your radio has a battery in, you can talk on the selected frequency. If you turn it off, you're automatically using direct communication again.
      Currently, we have three types of communication devices in the game. Megaphone, personal radio and also a Public Address System.
      Radios
      Personal radios are very easy to use. You don't need to hold the radio in your hand, it can be anywhere nearby like in the inventory or just on the ground and you can still use it. Other survivors nearby can also use your radio if they're close enough. To transmit on larger distances, you can use big radio stations. Signal strength is based on the maximum distance. The closer you're to the maximum distance, the more noise you're gonna hear. The same goes for the text chat. The closer you're to the max distance, the more can your text message be corrupted.

      Public address system (PAS)
      We placed quite a few PAS loud-speakers across the cities of Chernarus and now you'll finally be able to use them. PAS broadcaster can broadcast your voice to all loud-speakers in range. You just have to stand close to the broadcaster. It is also possible for multiple players to use the broadcaster at the same time. Listening players are hearing voices of the speakers from the loud-speakers based on its distance and direction.


      Megaphone
      Megaphone needs to be held in hands to use and it basically allows your voice to be heard on larger distances than just talking.


      Server keeps information about nearby communication devices that every player is currently able to use. This information is then cross-referenced against other players and the result is a "list" of players that you can communicate with. All voice messages and also text chat messages are routed to appropriate clients using this information. Thanks to this, you can transmit your voice to multiple devices at the same time. For example, if you want to set up some radios on different frequencies nearby your PAS broadcaster and then broadcast your amazing speech on all possible channels and PAS at the same time, it is completely possible.
      Contrary to the original plan, you cannot use one device to transmit to another device. Like leave your personal radio nearby PAS broadcaster. The chains of devices that could be created using this feature could become very complex really fast. We would also need to constantly check all communication devices on the whole map to update these chains, which could get costly in terms of resources. But we'll try to keep this in mind and maybe this feature could make it to the game on some smaller scale.
      We added and tweaked the sound filters for different types of devices. Radios still have their typical noise, but megaphones and public address system received some nice echo effects, so you should be able to tell what device is the source of the sound.
      If, for example, there are three radios around you on the same frequency, you're gonna hear the same voice with a little echo, so you can recognise the same voice is coming from multiple sources. The echo is calculated based on the number of devices and their distance from the player.
      Thanks for reading and I hope you're gonna have a lot of fun with the new communication system in Chernarus!

      Dev Update/Boris
      Survivors! I have some news from our scripting team - I'm happy to say that the system for weapon particle effects has been finished for some time now, so here is a small sample of the quality of muzzle flashes you can expect to see in the 0.63 Stress Test:

      Note that rapidly firing for a prolonged amount of time will heat up the barrel, causing a continuous stream of smoke until it cools down. In later experimental updates, badly worn out weapons will tend to smoke more as build-up collects in them, which prompts players to use the weapon cleaning kit to avoid malfunctions.
      The next task related to gunfights is the improvement of bullet impact effects (including blood splats), which are meant to better visualise our advanced ballistic system. Currently, we have a simplified placeholder system implemented until the final solution is fully prepared.
      Fire away, survivors, but mind the heat of your gun barrels!

      Community Spotlight/Baty
      Hello guys!
      I don't know if you noticed, but me and my colleague Martin were invited by Microsoft to show you the Xbox One DayZ DEMO at PAX East in Boston. Yes, we already have a playable single player 0.63 demo that runs really smooth, and this was the first time we presented the Xbox version to public!
      We were a bit nervous about the reactions, but your enthusiasm about the demo calmed us down and we were really happy that you liked it. Xbox players had a chance to try the demo for the first time, running around and exploring what DayZ is all about. Meanwhile, experienced PC players were testing new features, because it was also the first opportunity for the to get their hands on 0.63.
      If you want to see a personal experience of one of our players, here is a video from Jake:

      And of course, we've met so many nice people who we know only from online communication. For me, that was the highlight of the show. Thanks everyone who stopped by and talked to us or just tried the demo! 
      Our little station was right there. Massive thanks to Microsoft for inviting us to their booth!

      Pax East was so crowded!

      We've met a couple of survivors in DayZ cosplay!



      Some streamers like MarkstormTV, TheLoyalPatriot, LtDanOfficial, Mr. Moon, Deadly Slob, GamerDad, Johny Rotten, Puhdado, Acesfury and Jakon tried our demo too. 



      So many amazing people came to Pax to meet us. We love you guys.


      Community Events
      Let's check out some events on private servers. 
      The first one is organized by DayZ Underground server and it is called "king of Severograd". Be ready tomorrow at 4PM EST. Don't forget to register! 
       
      Another one will be on Saturday at 7pm CST on the DayZ Noob server and it is melee weapons only. You can win a fully decked M4A1, AK101, AK74, FAL and AKM. Nice prizes!
       
      And the third one is today, so run and join other survivors on TopeRec&Spaggie's server (185.16.86.37:2602) at 20:00GMT as soon as possible. 
      Communuty FAQ
      The last thing for today are some of your questions (we'll do the riddle next time):
      Is PC your primary platform? 
      Yes, it absolutely is our primary platform. Every piece of new content, every feature, every new bit of technology always gets into the PC version first. Both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 run only what already exists on PC. Ultimately any development progress made now is always implemented on PC first.

      We're back from a trip to GDC, and also back to the regular Status Report schedule. Let's read more about our upcoming 0.63 public stress tests, our progress on Xbox, and plans for PAX East!
      Dev Update/Eugen Dev Update/Filip Community Spotlight  
      Dev Update/Eugen
      Dear DayZ players,
      There is a lot of commotion in the office as we get near our first 0.63 public stress test (which I will talk about more today and share details of why and how we are approaching this step, and what should be the outcome for both you, the players, and us - the developers). Besides the obvious focus to get things into public hands for testing, we are dealing with issues related to weapon collisions with environment and zombies. While also working on climbing and jumping to make traversing through the environment a much better experience.There is a lot to cover in the coming weeks, and we are looking at the missing pieces, as well as pushing for the level of polish we want to achieve before we finally move 0.63 to the Experimental branch of DayZ on Steam. 
      0.63 Stress Tests
      As we've mentioned during our 0.63 Dev Live Stream, the initial releases of 0.63 will take the form of time-limited, focused stress tests. To differentiate these stress tests from the more traditional Experimental testing phase, we'll create a completely new "Stress Test" branch of DayZ on Steam, which anyone of you will be able to switch to, and play on test servers provided by us.
      Once 0.63 gets ready and releases on the Experimental branch, this option will be gone, but we expect to have more than one of these stress tests happening in the next couple of weeks, so you might get a chance to hop in early and test the game in a limited capacity.
      Our main goal with stress tests is to test server load and see the number of players we can handle on one server. These stress test can both happen very often, or there might be some delay between them. We will be auto collecting logs and servers crashes for further analysis, as well as profiling the server performance. A big chunk of the work will go into making sure we get lots of data to sort through and evaluate. 
      We will announce the time of each stress test on our social media channels so that you can prepare at least a little bit ahead of time. Besides the timeline of availability, we will try and provide you with a list of things that we've assigned the highest priority for getting feedback on. 
      I know a lot of data miners are going to look into everything we've done with the game, as there is tons of work in progress features hidden inside the client data, possibly including some not yet covered details that may cause a little bit of premature excitement. While we totally expect that this will happen, we will be, however, pointing our focus towards a more limited set of things at one time in these tests. For the first test, we will try to take a close look at the new implementation of gunplay and player synchronization.
      You will be spawning in a much more concentrated manner on selected locations in Chernarus, already equipped with basic gear that we have ready for testing. Many things in those builds will still be either disabled completely or not spawning. On the other hand, we will try and increase the player numbers per server to see how far we can go. It's going to be a bit of a bloodbath, that's for sure!
      For the first bunch of stress tests, there will be a limited time window, with a limited number of items spawning, and also with a somewhat limited functionality so that the data we are collecting is helpful. We are at a point where we need your help, your feedback. It's necessary for us to move forward, and to make sure that when the game goes live for everybody, it’s as consistent and reliable as it can get. For now, there will be broken animations, bugs and different annoying details that we know about. However, I cannot state how important for us it is to start testing now, and not wait any longer. Some of the issues we might encounter will take some time to solve, and will only be able to be reproduced in the high traffic environment of public testing. 
      Now to answer the question why we do so with a limited feature set and in a limited time window: any data collection past the initial findings and blockers is diluting the effectiveness of such efforts. Problems can be hiding in layers - as you fix one, another appears because with the first problem in its way, it never had a chance to occur. We think we know about a lot of them - if not most - but we realize there is more to do. It's going to be fun either way - we are ready to face this head on, and roll fixes in quickly. Ramping up our communication both ways is an important part of the process that's coming both during stress tests and in Experimental.
      For feedback, videos are one of the best mediums for us to understand what’s happening, so if you have a chance to share them with us on the Feedback Tracker and the DayZ forums, they are more than welcome! We'll talk about this when we release the notes for each stress tests, but as mentioned, we will mostly be looking for inconsistencies in player movement and gunplay. You'll definitely experience a lot of weird inconsistencies or bugs with things like melee, environment actions, or crafting, but we're working on those, and these just require time, but meanwhile, we can already run tests on those focus areas that will help us move forward faster.
      As for when do we start those stress tests - again, as mentioned in the Live Stream, we were looking at the initial releases of 0.63 as something that's weeks, not months away. It's been two weeks since the Live Stream now, and so it goes without saying that we'll all get to some testing rather soon!
      Keep following us on Twitter, Facebook, and our Forums to be notified when a stress test goes online!

      Hi all!
      Over the course of the last couple of weeks, we have worked on several smaller tasks and features such as swimming, footsteps in water, ladder climbing, user action and fireplace sounds.
      We've also finished the work on the interior controller for weapons and character sound. Now we can have different tails for indoor shooting, reloading magazines of footsteps. Indoor ambient sounds are still in progress.
      For next few weeks, we will be focusing on melee fight. We will re-design sounds for attack animations and also make many new melee hit sounds.

      Hello Survivors,
      In case you haven't noticed, we skipped the last Status Report and we broadcasted a Live Stream of the 0.63 build instead, with dev commentary. And we are really happy with your feedback, thank you for that! We are improving our streaming skills and we are hoping to stream more often in future, to share our DayZ development goals with you!
      If you missed the stream, we exported it to our YouTube channel and you can watch it here:
      Part of our team was attending GDC last week, where we've met with a bunch of journalists at a closed event organized by ID@Xbox - to all of them, we've presented a short Staroye DEMO of DayZ on Xbox One. People who tried it were amazed by how smooth the game runs, and how good it feels. Here is a short video of the press event on Tuesday:



      If you are sad you couldn't have tried it at GDC, we have another chance for you to get your hands on our DayZ Xbox demo! We are going to PAX East in Boston next week and we will be there ready for you from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th at the Xbox booth.

      I know you always have questions about the console versions! I chose the three hottest ones:
      Are you developing DayZ for Xbox One X only? No, we’ll be releasing on all Xbox One consoles, and on PlayStation 4 as well!
      How about the frame rates on Xbox One X? It’s all work in progress, but we’re already peaking at 50-60 FPS in 1080p on Xbox One X, and we plan to support 4K@30 FPS. We’ll see where we end up though!
      Will there be cross-platform between platforms? That’s unlikely - while it’s perfectly viable from the technology perspective, we’d rather not mix PC and console players because it would cause a noticeable disbalance in gameplay.
      Let's check out the content you have done since the last Status Report. There is a lot of it, so I had to choose just some of the things you sent me.
      I know we highlighted Gaming Roach Entertainment before, but he is so original and we love his videos very much! He made a DayZ parody of the TV show "Friends" and it is stunning. You need to see it!
       
      I saw a picture on Twitter that made me hungry. And I hope it will make you hungry too. This amazing package was sent by PetitPoney to his DayZ friends. Looks like human meat, doesn't it? I asked the recipient EVILZ if he likes human meat so much, and he replied to me that it is just pork meat and he made a backpack from its skin. Okay, I am going to trust you for now.

       
      Look at these cans, can you recognize them? They are just like the ones from the game! This picture was sent to us by Wallamys Uchiha, who made some for himself in real life. Do you want them too? You can make it yourselves, Wallamys shared the labels with us here.

       
      I love your artworks guys. Please send more to me! This one is made by Dominik Figlhuber and it is in 80s style. Amazing work Dominic, I am looking forward to your next fanart!

      Let's check some events that servers prepared for you.
      Do you know the server Mafia of Balota? Admins prepare events every week and they have some safe zones around the map, so don't forget to read the rules before joining. The event for this week is in medieval style. If you want to participate, just join their Facebook group and learn more there.

       
      The Village server prepared a screenshot contest for you. They are looking for the most beautiful post-apocalyptic screenshot taken on The Village server. The contest ends at the end of the month so hurry, you have just a few days to participate.

      And your favorite riddle!
      It was really hard last time. The house is between Black Moutain and Svergino and these guys are hardcore fans who really know the place:
      Uncuepa Jake Goof3y‏ CanisDirus CryDoXz GaryWalnuts And the new riddle is a really hard one, too, because it is from Adam again - he likes to challenge you!

       
      If you know this place, tweet the location to our official Twitter account and you can be featured in the Status Report next time!
      Thank you for your amazing work guys and I am looking forward to seeing your content in two weeks. Don't forget to check our Instagram next week, we will post some pictures from our trip to PAX East there! Love you all <3.
