Alla Gran Turismo 7-spelare får nu en miljon gratis-credits
Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo-seriens förfader och chef/grundare av japanska spelhuset Polyhony Digital har meddelat att alla världens GT7-spelare nu kommer att erhålla en miljon gratis-krediter i spelet, som plåster på såren för att spelets serverpark låg nere i närmare 37 timmar förra veckan.
Kazunori Yamauchi / President of Polyphony Digital, Creator of Gran Turismo: "Thank you for your continued support and feedback on Gran Turismo 7, your voices have not gone unheard. I would like to apologize for the frustration and confusion caused last week with our patch updates which resulted in, not only a server outage but also adjustments to the in-game economy which were made without a clear explanation to our community. We know that this is not the Gran Turismo experience you expect and we will be making a goodwill gesture in the form of a non-paid credit pack of 1 million Cr. available to those players who may have been affected*. You will see this hit your accounts shortly. Make sure you log into the game before April 25 to claim the credits.
The patch update previously deployed was intended to rectify an issue with inconsistent reward payouts within a part of the World Circuit Events. But, to re-establish the intended equilibrium and provide more accurate rewards based on time investment and completion, it was necessary to recalculate the rewards system as a whole. To improve the player experience, we will be rolling out a considerable patch in the beginning of April. The number of events will be increased, and we will reestablish the reward system with greater balance throughout the game to benefit all players."
