 A message from our team - our renewed focus. . . KEEPING THE GAME CLEAN  
As ZO has grown over the past few months, our team has been pushing hard to create fun features and content for you all to enjoy every week. As part of this we have been hugely prioritizing features/content over bugs and improvements the last few months.

We have not kept the game clean.  For this, we want to apologize. We understand that ZO has been harder and not as enjoyable for a lot of you to play as we have accidentally changed the way combat felt and haven’t gone back to improve it (before today!), among other bugs. Moving forward, we are focusing on keeping the game clean and bug-free so that ZO can be the most fun and highest quality game possible for all of you to play. We’ve brought on an additional developer who is focused exclusively on this.

Below you will find a list of bugs that we have fixed as part of this update to keep the game clean and balanced for you all to enjoy.

With this, the fixed bug list and improvements for today:
1) Restored Kick and Swing functionality
2) Restored Ghost Swing functionality
3) Caestus Animations Improved to be more fluid and fun to use
4) More emote button purchase is now hidden for 2 seconds after opening Emote Menu (fixes issue with 1+Q accidentally prompting to buy emotes)
5) All taunt previews should now play
6) Baton Weapon skin now available for Yen
7) Turning off weapon effects now turns off Venom Katana effects
8) Venom Katana now has a preview
9) Sakura Katana now has a dual wield option
10) Users can now invite players to party (and they can accept!) on mobile
11) Fixed 10M Kanabo/Katana
12) Fixed reach on Molten Core Hitbox
13) Soul Stealer is no longer collide-able
14) Oni Nightmare Taunt fixed
15) Fixed Dynamic FOV setting
16) Fixed spawning with multiple weapons

Thank you to the community QA  team for the help.

We will continue to make bug fixes a focus on top of releasing regular content, lots more bug fixes planned, please let us know what to fix so we can make sure to fix the bugs that affect you the most!
