surveillance 2 He hasn’t had a good time. after submitting two external party attacks that made it almost impossible to play, the shooter of heroes was criticized for his bad cell phone policy. So many had problems trying to play surveillance 2 with friends. Blizzard worked to ease these pains, removing the phone requirement altogether and allowing more players to experience the sequel as the week progressed, but not before some extended downtime Thursday night. By Friday, fans had discovered a chat bug that randomly spent your real-world money in the store. Now it’s night, and to kick off the weekend, Blizzard has another update.

In a new status update postBlizzard expressed its gratitude that fans have been “patient” throughout this entire saga, and while there are now some welcome improvements, the game’s biggest status update is still something of a mixed bag.

Effective immediately, console players who have a linked account as of June 9, 2021, along with PC players with linked accounts, will no longer need a cell phone, Blizzard announced in the status update. In an email, a Blizzard spokesperson clarified that all-new players for surveillance 2however, you would still need a phone number, so the requirement hasn’t completely disappeared.

While Blizzard says it’s making progress on things like account merge issues, along with players not being able to access their purchased Watchpoint Pack on consoles, the developer claims some may still experience hiccups. There is still a queue for the previous issue, and in the case of the latest issue, PlayStation owners in particular may not see the product in their inventories. A fix is ​​reported to be rolling out later tonight. Some may also experience those annoying login issues, but Blizzard made it seem like it’s a much smaller hurdle to the game now.

Perhaps the most ironic point in the status update is what replaced the login issue. Here’s Blizzard, explaining how by improving one thing, players can now see a worse experience elsewhere:

Now that we’ve increased capacity and have a higher turnout of players, the matchmaking systems are affected, meaning you may see a wait before you’re placed in a match. We’re changing settings within this system today and hope to shorten that a bit throughout the day. We will continue to investigate matchmaking queues over the weekend to identify any additional improvements we can make.

However, you can at least be in-game while you wait.

Blizzard knows that fans may be feeling frustrated after the week that has just passed. At the end of this update, after thanking players and acknowledging that the game had a rocky launch, Blizzard wrote:

We deeply appreciate your patience and thank you for your support, and we are focused on improving the surveillance 2 experience for all players.

For now, it seems as if Supervision players will have to wait until next week to see more significant changes beyond those scheduled to hit the game later tonight.
