We know the game is taking place during the Conclave of Prague event and that we are members of the Camarilla. Does this mean we will only see Camarilla clans as playable options?

More specifically, what are the chances of seeing Gangrel in the game?

We have Custos already, so there are still SOME in the Camarilla, but Gangrel are kinda independent and it wouldn't be too far fetched to imagine he's the only one in the Camarilla in Prague.

Loving the game btw, I'm completely hooked. Can't get enough!

Next clan to be released is Ventrue, and we plan to go on after that. No comment beyond Camarilla yet though.

As for Gangrel - I am on ... Read more

Hello. Love the game so far. But will there be a ranked queue in the future? I think it would drastically increase motivation to play the game for some people.

Ranked is planned as far as I know, yes.

Hello. The only threads that have been locked are those with accusations of spyware where we have presented our case and explained the issue. There is no discussion to be had on that matter beyond that point - the claims of spyware are false. We are running an anti-cheat that functions the same way as most others applied by many major online games. We are a Swedish company bound by Swedish and EU law. All data processed by Bloodhunt stays on servers in the EU, US and Singapore.

We have no issue with negative reviews and we in fact see them as a great way towards improving the game and making it better. We have had it with lies and misinformation though.

Hello,

We felt obligated to post this statement here as well for further visibility.

The spyware claim is blatantly false. This has been demonstrated in many articles already. Not only is it false, but it is also damaging to our first game, Bloodhunt, and our studio Sharkmob. By posting these types of unfounded reviews and discussions, you are potentially putting in jeopardy the work of more than 150 people who poured their sweat and blood into making Bloodhunt the game we are proud to call our first baby.

The allegation of Bloodhunts anti-cheat software being spyware surfaced a few days ago - and it is simply false. The rumor started after a community member discovered that the anti-cheat application was sometimes running for a short while after the game was shut down (for up to 90 seconds). A few files were also left on the hard-drive after uninstall of the game. These two problems were connected and classified as bugs by the development team. They hav... Read more

Thanks for reporting and we are ramping up! With Discord, Support Ticket, and the game to attend to, we were spread a bit thin but hopefully it gets better soon.

Thanks!

Hey there,

We always welcome constructive criticism but I think everyone will agree this is not the case here. Therefore, there is no much point letting this discussion go on.

Thanks!

Or just very very bad programing in their anticheat. The game seemed cool, but I also kept crashing and couldn't get past the tutorial so that's great.

Hello Segfault. I don't know why your CPU runs at 100% but I can tell you that there is no spyware or bitcoin mining in our game.

Sorry, but I don't have the answer to that. I recommend you contact the technical support, they are better able to help you with this kind of thing. https://support.sharkmob.com/hc/en-us

Hello! Glad you enjoy the game. We have indeed plans for additional content in the coming seasons. We haven't released many details on it yet though, except the next clan which will be the Ventrue (like Hendumaica pointed out above).

And do not worry, we will be working hard to deal with exploits and cheaters - it is a constant battle in a live multiplayer game.

Hey sHo. Agreed! We are working on educating more players about this crucial feature - both inside and outside of the game.

so you want me to go by the fact that a person on the dev team on discord is the same as a rando level 11 profile on Steam?, how dose that prove anything, here is a thought get that account on Discord to post proof they are connected to you instead

So it isn't enough that I confirm to you, in person, through the official account on Discord? ... Read more

We are also discovering some bugs that have allowed people to cheat - some of those bugs have already been f...

Hello. I am one of the devs at Sharkmob. The anti-cheat software we are using for Bloodhunt had two bugs in it at release. One such bug resulted in the application sometimes running for up to 90 seconds after shutting down the game. The other bug resulted in some files being left on the drive after uninstall (the bugs are in fact connected). Both of these bugs have been fixed and patched. There is no spyware in Bloodhunt, only an anti-cheat that functions the same way as most others used through out the industry. The community member who initially discovered the issue has even confirmed that it was bug related and nothing else.

Cheers and have a nice day!
