edited April 3 in Patch Notes
Greetings, Operatives. With this new episode, we are introducing a new phase of the game called First Connection. This is part one – Persona. In this update, we’ve revamped District Ruins and added our highly anticipated Cyber Case system, Memory Cell (MC) Shop, and paint system. We also added two new weapons to add to your arsenal. Review the patch notes below.

MAP
District Ruins – Terminal Conquest

We’ve heard our community’s feedback about wanting our maps to feel more in tune with the Ghost in the Shell universe. We’ve started with a well-loved map, one of First Assault’s oldest and most played maps of all time – welcome to the revamped District Ruins. We’ve updated the entire map to feel grittier, with more debris, graffiti, and inspiration taken from the anime series. We also made a couple of small balance changes for the Terminal B side. Dive in and let us know what you think of the new District Ruins.

Balance #1: Terminal B - These crates can no longer be climbed.

Balance #2: Between Terminal B&C - The ledge has been removed.

WEAPON
SMG: KA-P5W – Chambered for 6x35mm rounds, this weapon features superior penetration and reliability thank to its extended barrel.

AR: KHX-160 – This versatile assault rifle was designed to be as lightweight as possible and support ambidextrous operation.

We’re excited to introduce the new paint system to First Assault. Show off your style and customize your weapons in the armory to your liking using paints and stickers acquired from the Cyber Cases.

    Looks good but theres a major bug preventing login. Everytime I launch the game the anit cheat starts up 200 processes and the game itself never starts up. Been playing since 2015 and not once have I ever had this issue prior to todays update

    Could you provide exact steps you took that led to this happening? Are you on Steam or NX Launcher?

    In the meantime, try restarting your computer and then launching the game. Please let me know if this happens again. Thank you!

    I have tried both the NX Launcher and Steam now. I press play. The NGS anti-cheat icon shows bottom right like always. I get the loading indication above my mouse and nothing happens.
    The loading icon above my mouse keeps showing in 1sec intervals.

    This happens for both the NX Launcher and Steam. I have tried re-installing NX Launcher and rebooting my computer.

    I am running the game via steam (have been since CBT) I just validated the files through it and 7 files failed the validation and were redownloaded, same problem anti cheat just keeps relaunching itself over and over again eating up my processor. I will attempt a reboot now but it looks like the anti cheat is causing problems.

    @LumosNXA I have found bug.
    After I spent 110 bids I charged for extra 25 bids and I got Poland flag(RARE) and set it(as you can see at the bottom) but it isnt checked out from the Intergate - which means I can get it another time...

    Reboot ur pc. Looks like that solves the issue as my game launched this time around after a reboot.

    That is not a bug. After 5 spins, the item list locks and no more items are removed. Please read the blog and watch the video: http://playfirstassault.tumblr.com/post/158706754476/

    Yes but it's legendary, in terms of cases like CSGO. I suppose legendary means some kind of "special item" like knife or what?!

    It means spend $500 to get. Also in regard to 5 items crossing off the list they still duplicate even after crossing out it happened to me earlier. Makes it impossible to get any rares.
