Hi fellow Closers,
Some of you have asked for some information on various quality of life updates in Closers and I'm happy to report that I have received some answers from Naddic to your questions!
Questions and Answers:
Q. Will there be more exclusive in game events now that Naddic is publishing Closers in EN? (Gatchaman Crowds, Hatsune Miku, Oh My Girl events)
A. We are not able to bring those collaboration events to the World server right now.
But we will do our best to make it happen.
Q. Will there still be seasonal sales events? (Black Friday, etc.)
A. We do know that many of you agents are waiting for Black Friday deals.
We’ve been planning to provide seasonal sales events with great benefits to meet our agents’ expectations.
Q. Will KR events be imported into the EN version of Closers? (Level Jumping Event, Sector Run Event)
A. Taking content release speed and economy & ecosystem of World server into account, all the special events provided in KR server are under consideration. Especially, we are actively considering introducing various forms of alternate character growth events such as level jumping.
Q. Will material reduction for repeated gear crafting for alternate characters be introduced at some point?
A. Unfortunately, we do not have plans for introducing a material reduction system for now.
However, we promise that we will support agents with multiple characters to grow their characters more easily and joyfully.
Q. Bitna's washing machine awards 50 bonus rolls on a max roll of 200. On KR/JP players are awarded 80 bonus rolls for an identical max roll. We would like to have that benefit extended to us as well.
A. We have super great news!
The regular price of washing machines will be permanently discounted from 100 to 90 with November 5th Naddic launch.
Also, the bonus amount of washing machines will be increased the same with KR server’s.
|Number of purchases at a time||Bonus Washing Machine (As-Is)||Bonus Washing Machine (To-Be)|
Q. We would like to have Selectable Box implemented earlier to speed up the gearing process.

Chip System Renewal
The chip system is being completely overhauled because of several issues;
- Absence of content to farm the end game chips with continuous effort.
- Unintuitive system containing too many different types of chips and bad usability.
- Presence of abandoned chips with undesirable stats.
The chip system has been simplified and will be easier to use along with these changes, chips will be changed from being character bound to account bound instead.
Notice - The chips that you retain will be converted to common useful chips according to their original value. When you first log in after the update, you will have a high chance of your overall TCP decreasing due to this conversion. DO NOT PANIC! After you enhance some common chips into the newer, stronger chips, your TCP will be recovered!
Pet System Renewal
- The pet system has been overhauled, these cuties will be more powerful and even more useful than before!
- Pet system will be changed from character bound to account bound.
- Enhancing Pet’s stats will be applied to your character's TCP.

Hello Closers! I know you all have a lot of really important questions concerning Naddic's Closers service management so we sent some of them to Naddic.
Well, I've got great news! Naddic has been awesome enough to send us answers to your questions..
Question - Where will the server hosted by Naddic be located?
Answer - Servers will be located in North America for faster and stable service
Question - Will Naddic bring stamina/Fatigue system back?
Answer - There’s no plan to bringing stamina/fatigue system back.
Question - What patch schedule will Naddic use? Weekly, bi-weekly, monthly?
Answer - Basic patch schedule will be bi-weekly. But it’s flexible considering the content and holidays.
Question - Will content change to match the Korean build?
Answer - World server will keep its contents as it is – such as no fatigue system. Major contents already introduced in Korean server will be released in World server step by step.
Question - Will elite/platinum status be carried over, and if so, are there any planned changes?
Answer - Elite/Platinum status will be carried over. But you might lose some days due to the small gap between EnMasse server close and Naddic server open. We are going to recover the lost days through granting Elite status item to you.
Question - What will happen to the IP ban for Indonesia and Vietnam since both server already shutdown?
Answer - Players from Indonesia and Vietnam will be able to access and play Closers World server.
Question - The last time we have the server merge/transfer ( from EU server to NA) we have some name change / name release. Will Naddic also offer something like that when we transfer over?
Answer - We will maintain every closer/character names as they are. None of the in-game user information will be changed due to the transfer.
Naddic would like to hear more of your questions and concerns regarding our upcoming service transfer. We will continue to review this thread and pass on questions. And of course, I will update when we receive Naddic's answers.
Today we delivered some bad news about the future of En Masse Entertainment. But I also have some great news to share about the future of Closers. Naddic, the developer of Closers and En Masse have been preparing to transfer game services to Naddic. Your time as a Closer will continue.
En Masse will continue to support Closers with 2 more content releases currently scheduled for August 31 PDT and September 28 PDT. Then toward the end of October we will begin transferring our data to Naddic who will bring servers back online with all of your progress preserved. You will not lose anything during this transfer and your new home will be with the developers themselves.
There is a lot for you to look forward to with this change of service. I am very excited for the content Naddic has lined up for you. Stay tuned for more information.
We are aware of an issue affecting Steam Launcher updates for the recent April 20 patch. We are working on a solution, but have found a workaround.
If you updated your Closers client through Steam on April 20 between 6:20 PM PDT and 8:00 PM PDT (UTC: April 21, 01:30 – 03:30) and are unable to enter the game, please follow the instructions below.
- Navigate to your Closers game install location. To quickly find your game install location follow these instructions
a. Right-Click Closers in your Steam game library list,
b. Select Properties
c. Click on the Local Files tab
d. Click the Browse Local Files button
- Navigate to the following path **closers\DAT**
- Delete the following four files
- In Steam, again Right-Click Closers in your library list and select Properties
- Click on the Local Files tab
- Click the Verify Integrity of Game Files button
- Once steam compete file validating your game files, launch Closers with the PLAY button
If removing the four files listed above does not work to resolve your issue, you may need to manually delete your Closers install and re-install with Steam Note: Steam uninstall function alone will not resolve the issue. You need to manually delete the game folder.
- Locate your games local install directory
- Use Steam's uninstall function and uninstall Closers
- Manually delete the remaining Closers folder in your Steam Library
- Install Closers through Steam
We realize not all players can easily re-download the 10g game. We are still looking for an easier solution.
If you are able to re-install, that could be the quickest solution.
We appreciate your understanding.
I think everyone feels the same way. The price of the License is way too steep.
It is definitely a Season Pass of sorts, and it pushes people to be active on the game and that's good. But a season pass that's worth $50? The prices in the store are obviously terrible and everyone knows that, and I personally have to say, the rewards are not worth that price.
Please get a check of how much a sane person would actually pay for the items offered.
$15 dollars sounds fine, even $20, but $50?
Whoever is putting prices on the items in this game...
Happy Lunar New Year! Our friends at Naddic, the developer of Closers, have a message for you, our amazing Closers.
I just don't understand why some people, specially high TCP ones, have to rush BB raid within 15-20 minutes at the expense of an entire squad or two not getting an SS reward (possibly only obtaining A/S or even E/F).
How can this happen? To put it simply, they put all the high tcp players into a single squad and proceed to obliterate everything much faster than the other 1 or 2 squads. Then they do 3-4 runs which leaves the other squad/s having insufficient points to reach SS. It also guarantees everyone in their squad to earn SSS. Not to mention there are some people who, for the love of god, do Core twice. This renders an entire squad wasting their time and effort because the former wants to take advantage and save their precious time.
I can understand if they do this if the other squad/s can't finish the run because they dissolve due to DCs/crashes or just not enoguh firepower/skill before they got wiped out by one-shot mechanics. But sometimes it's not like the 'weakest' squad can't finish the run or finish it fast enough. It's just that Squad 1 (usually) finishes the run SO much faster. They don't even care about balancing the squad and spreading high TCP players across the 3 squads so that runtime would be pretty much the same for everyone.
It's suffice to say that this is a very inconsiderate move. I don't want to create an issue and "rant" in the forum but being partied with these people for the last couple of weeks is starting to take a toll on me. I'm already sacrificing my sleep time just so that I can play this raid. I just want everybody to have their fair share of experience and rewards.
I don't want to experience this again. My solution? I'm just going to create my room from now on, or atleast pick leaders who I had good experience with.
P.S. If you're the leader, you can drag a player's avatar to arrange his/her placement in squads. 9/10 rooms I've joined don't even know how to do this. Please balance the team. Thank you.
