Bethesda Responds to Fallout 1st Fallout

After publishing a list of user complaints about the just launched Fallout 1st subscription service for Fallout 76, Polygon has a response from Bethesda Softworks that addresses a few of these gripes:
A Bethesda Softworks representative said that an update to private world settings will be coming soon, to allow players to control all access to their private servers. The company also examined the Scrap Box and private server recycling issues.

For Scrap Boxes, Bethesda said that “a small number of players with a large quantity of scrap are experiencing a display issue causing their Scrap Box to appear empty.” The studio thinks this is a user interface issue and that players have not lost any scrap; they should still be able to access it when crafting from workbenches, as usual. “We are actively working to address this issue, both internally and using the data and characters folks from the community have provided us,” Bethesda said.

Regarding recycled servers, Bethesda denied that players are getting used or recycled worlds. “When a Fallout 1st member starts a Private World, a dedicated world is launched on an [Amazon Web Services] server. Players who have seen looted containers upon login may be experiencing the expected behavior upon log out and log in. Loot is instanced for each player in containers. As Fallout 76 players know, if you loot a container on one server, and then log out and log back in to another server, the container remains in a ‘looted’ state for a period of time.”

And as to private worlds’ privacy, “we understand this is not what players expected for their Private Worlds,” Bethesda said, meaning that anyone in a friends list may join a private world without invitation. “We are looking to provide an option in an upcoming patch that will allow Fallout 1st members to restrict access to their servers more completely.”

Update, 11:40 p.m.: Bethesda Game Studios has continued to investigate the Scrap Box issue and now acknowledges it is more than a menu display problem for a small number of users.

“Our initial investigation indicated that this was a display issue, and that no items had gone missing,” a Bethesda representative told Polygon. “However, we have since found that a small number of players have in fact experienced a loss of scrap items after placing them into the Scrap Box and then loading into a world.

“Resolving this issue is currently our top priority,” the representative said. “We are also exploring ways to restore the missing items.” Developers are trying to come up with a hotfix to resolve the issue ASAP.

As with everything we do for Fallout 76, we will continue to think of our bleeding bottom line first, ignore your feedback and improve the pay to win services over the months and years to come, so please shut the f**k up and just take it!

What WE, THE GAMERS, want is an Anthem/Fallout 76 crossover with reduced contents but more things to pay for but won't work. And Anthem 76 should be a game as a service, so once BethEAsda pulls the plug, you got nothing left. This is what WE, THE GAMERS, want. Right?

Their top priority should be re-evaluating their pay model and stop screwing over their community.

Bethesda's has been head diving into the shallow pool head first for a while, you would think by now they would get it.

I hear you, Bethesda isn't allowed to escape but this is really all Zenimax isn't it? They are the vampires, am i right?

It's like Bethesda is going out of their way to destroy their good name.
Doesn't bode well for Elder Scrolls 6.

I doubt this is Todd's fault. This comes from further up the chain, either the suits form Bethesda Softworks or Zenimax.

I've heard and I can't believe this to be true, a private server person can log that character into the public servers, yes/no?

Yes, because the private servers are not any different than public ones except that only you and a handful of friends can join. If that changes, I'd expect the compatibility to change, too.

Kotaku had an EXCELLENT quote to finish off their article about this latest additional dumpster to the fire that is FO76.

“We understand this is not what players expected” is a very good motto for Fallout 76.

I'm still up for it if they get private servers working as we normally expect and mods are available. It becomes a co-op Fallout conduit. People can build on it.

But yeah they need a lot of server options added.

I'm so scared for the next Elder Scrolls. Will it require a $100 a year subscription to play?

Yes, but that won't include the modding module. It's separate at an additional $40/year.
