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.
I'm surely not the first person to have brought this up, but has there ever been any consideration for adding some additional overflow/BB raid windows into the current schedule? The way the times stack up currently, both the opening times for Beelzebub and Overflow are almost entirely overlapped with NA's working hours (Average 8AM-5PM). There is some space for those on the east coast of NA (3 hour ish window from 5pm to 8pm?), but this window progressively shrinks as you move west across the continent. Personally, I'm on the west coast and have pretty much zero chance to get any access to endgame content during the week.
For reference (Add 3 hours for conversion of PST to EST):
10-11 UTC 2(AM)-3(AM) PST
15-16 UTC 7(AM)-8(AM) PST
18-19 UTC 10(AM)-11(AM) PST
20-21 UTC 12(PM)-1(PM) PST
23-24 UTC 3(PM)-4(PM) PST
0:30-1 UTC 4:30(PM)-5(PM) PST
1:30-2 UTC 5:30(PM)-6(PM) PST
16 - 2 UTC 8(AM)-6(PM) PST
With the times laid out as above, hopefully its clear enough to see the time restrictions. Assuming those of us who have jobs have on average a 30 minute to 1 hour commute, that pretty much takes out all the available access times [for the west coast or anyone who's unfortunate to have to work long hours on the east]. I'm not asking for the times to be changed, but as this server does service both NA and EU, it would only be fair that access times be equally available for both regions. It would make far more sense if Overflow was open every other hour or even every two hours, while Beelzebub was open for a full 12 hours (16 or 24 would honestly be more accommodating, but I won't be greedy). I'd even be happy if a tiny 30 minute window was available between 2UTC and 8UTC was opened. At least that would give us a sliver of opportunity to get a little bit done...
First run 5 people crashed and were unable to rejoin due to the rejoin feature also being broken and returning users to the hub, it's unfortunate that a fun raid is being ruined by the massive amount of dcs/crashing people are experiencing.
If anything please hotfix the rejoin feature to actually work, it feels awful crashing only to come back and be forced to take the rank F rewards because of the rejoin feature failing.
