Hello, Tamers! Hope your week is starting out great and you're crushing your Rematches.

I wanted to drop a quick round of updates, a couple lists on what's been fixed and what's going to be fixed, not only bugs but other situations, for everyone's knowledge:

Stuff that's already fixed:

  • Twitch Drops. If you haven't received yours yet and you're on Switch, please link in-game once more and wait a day or so until the server catches up with the delivery. All Tamers on every other platform, you should be good.
  • Purchases of Novas on Xbox. Everyone who had purchased them and hadn't received them should have them now. If this is not your case, please e-mail [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
  • Deluxe items on Xbox. They've been delivered, so check your Vault or your Customization Menu.
  • The digital artbook on Steam is now fixed and fully available. You can find it by going from Steam, clicking on Temtem's properties > Local files > Browse > here'll be a folder called Digital Artbook.
  • Some bugs, like Lumas appearing in the TemSafari, having your radar be broken by playing Evershifting Tower of TemSafari, eggs from the DigiLair being soulbound, or the Archtamers' fight being bugged and locking people in. For a fuller list, please check here.
  • The official Wiki changed. The Fandom one is no longer the official one, nor is it updated. This is the correct, official one: https://temtem.wiki.gg/wiki/Temtem_Wiki

Stuff that's going to be fixed:

Please note: all of this requires a client-side patch, or more. Although the patch is done on our end, we need the platform holders' authorization to publish these patches. We cannot tell you how long this might take, because we don't know. The patch was sent for certification early last week.

  • Tamer Pass experience. Find the full explanation in this post. Once we include all the changes planned, Tamer Pass experience gains will go up on around 70%.
  • Black screens on Switch following an evolution in combat, or during radars.
  • Occasional black screen on Xbox. Any other case of black screen or white screen are included, too. Remember that if a bug causes you to be unable to play, you can get help here.
  • Xbox users being unable to get Temtem Plus.
  • Being soft-locked in the Evershifting Tower.
  • Rebuilding Bridges quest, Matthew and its idol quest.
  • The NPCs that trap you after battling.

These are only some of the fixes coming, those that have been affecting the most users or causing the most trouble. There's a lot of other bug fixes coming.

Hope this clarifies some of the most frequently asked questions these days! We are trying to answer as many of these as we can, but at the end of the day there's only so many hours in a day. Thank you for your patience, and apologies for all the maintenances and the inconveniences!

Smolbois for your patience

Will the tamer pass experience gains be retroactive? This was left up in the air in the original post.

Some will be, I think! I don't have all the technical data on this yet.

What does “experience gains will go up on around 70%” mean?

You already doubled the points for wild battles and it still took almost the whole campaign for 1 level. 70% more isn’t going to do the trick…

We added a modicum of experience for the wild battles, yes. This change means every way of obtaining experience that previously existed will give around 70% more experience than before.
Still, the Tamer Pass' hugest experience gains come from the weekly quests, available on the third island forward, and they will still be the main source of exp.

Any word on retroactively rewarding players with pass exp for defeating NPC tamers? I started the story over fresh on launch day and I'm still only a few levels deep into the pass... I have no idea how I'm expected to finish it before the next "season" without having had access to endgame content on day one.

The experience for battle NPC Tamers will be retroactive, yes!

Not for now, we're still thinking about it.

70% increase? Great! Now instead of 30 hours per level of the pass it only takes 19 hours per level. That's incredible and really the change we needed.

I'm so excited to spend 1140 hours earning 10$ worth of cosmetics! This will be the most memorable gameplay experience of my entire life.

Oh yeah, I'm sure this piece of pure sarcasm, 0 receptiveness and willingness to try the changes will totally redirect the devs' future steps.

Seriously. If you have feedback, provide it like a normal person. The Pass has a free option for anyone still not convinced. Also, someone completed their Tamer Pass today, so certainly not 1140 hours for everyone.

I thought there was supposed to be a deluxe edition upgrade for PS5 and to this day there still doesn't seem to be one available.

We thought so too, but it wasn't initially possible. We're working on it.

Hey, I wanted to thank you and your team for communicating with your fanbase so much. And I am hugely enjoying the game. I got a physical copy and honestly I don't buy a physical copy unless it is something I want to hold on too forever

that's so sweet! thank you for your support

I play on Steam, is there anything I can do for the Twitch Drops I haven't received?

They appear as claimed on Twitch

To fully clarify, they are not even in my vault, I just never received them.

When did you link on https://link.playtemtem.com/ ?

Yes, included.

I've played a solid 40hrs this week and I'm LVL 2 in the tamer pass...two. absurdly slow grind.

If you're starting the game and these are your first 40 hours, this is understandable. You'll earn much more once you reach Omni and start unlocking endgame.

I honestly just hope to bring to your attention that casual players don’t want to grind out to support the game. I want to support the game and be rewarded for it. If it feels Grindy I am not going to.

I think super animal Royale approaches this well by having generous exp gains, daily and weekly challenges, as well as battle passes never ending. If you purchase them you can go back and complete them years later if you’d like. Once you’ve bought it, it’s your content to earn at your own pace

The increase in exp will make it easier on casual players, and as long as a player has visited all the islands, weekly missions can be done pretty casually. The Pass as it is now is only super tough on newbies, but this too will improve.

Nothing on the regular ps5 crashes? Do they even know about it?

We do know about most crashes. Still, the best way to make sure we know is to report them on our forums with as much info as possible.

We still don't know, but probably months.

Any plans on making more activities coop-able?

Once you're done with the story, you can barely do anything with a friend outside of lairs :(

Not that I currently know of. The way the current endgame activities work, with competitive format or team building from scratch, and the way the coop system works don't exactly mesh together. You should suggest this on the forums, though.

Any word on the deleveling bug that removes levels and evolutions from Tems leveled in co-op?

(Posted on forums, but unable to paste bin the logs from my PC, as they were too big in size. [Was also told by a discord mod that console players issues are less relevant due to lack of logs because when I posted a picture, it was from my TV, and they assumed I was on console and not PC.] Do have them saved on my computer, if you're interested and in need of them.)

If you could send them to me, either thru mail or on Discord (Tsukki#8980) that'd be neat and I'd get them to the QA team!

I always report them in the ps5 form upon crash. And I do crush every single time I play in many different situations. Are you telling me that all of crush reports I sent are getting ignored because I have not reported them on your forum?

they reach Sony, not us, and Sony doesn't usually share them with us. Reporting them on our forums is much more effective.

You’re being a clown man. Just admit the grinding aspect of this game still needs a lot of work and that you guys the devs are working on making the game slightly more casual friendly. At the very least…also increase the damn pansuns. Wtf is with this game and all this damn grinding it’s ridiculous

I don't know, dude, I'm answering these questions in earnest, I don't see that as being a clown and I don't get people seem to think being rude at the CM will give their point more weight or something. We literally are making the game a bit more casual friendly with these changes and we're proving we're open to feedback and reviewing our decisions, just no need to be rude or demeaning.

You know, I'm thankful for your efforts in taking our feedback to the dev team, but these responses make it hard to feel any sympathy for y'all. You can't tell us that Crema hasn't been incredibly shortsighted if they didn't even anticipate the outrage behind these systems that are disrespectful to the consumer's time or money. It is understandable that a lot of us who bought into the pass early on are frustrated with the way it was designed when there was no real warning about it, so we found out the hard way. Nobody is gonna be happy when they feel that they've essentially been scammed out of their hard earned money. Some people won't express that frustration in constructive ways, but you lashing back out just shows how out of touch you are with this portion of your player base. It's better to just stick to the "We hear you and are working on it" posts and not replying to ones that don't phrase feedback politely.

That's why we're making changes as soon as we can, that's why this whole post exists.

I answer a million posts politely every day, and I think devs get to ask for respect and call out excessive hate from time to time. We're people too, whether you disagree with our design decisions or love them.

There should probably be a way to get suggestions to the dev team from Reddit. Not everyone wants to use forums nowadays.

It's pretty hard to keep track of the Reddit at all times, and things would be easily missed. The forums are guaranteed to be read.
