Boss Battle Start Button for Officers

Short question: when?

There is no mention of this in Server Release Notes 2023-01-04 and it was first requested way back in September.

Today (yet again) a newbie started our next boss battle at an unsociable hour, so we can’t run

This is so irritating

    Actually, it was requested in July...

    - Limit new boss battle initiation to officers to ensure the fleet is engaging the right target and not spreading effort.

  • My apologies *Nomad*, I used the forum search, happy to be corrected - LLAP

    This change requires modifications to the client.
    It will be part of our 9.2.0 client that is currently scheduled for next week.
    Due to the various engine/software changes that this client will introduce, the release across all available platforms will be slower.

    The start restriction for FBB will be enabled after the forced update that will make 9.2.0 mandatory to play.

    Agreed. We run into the same issue. It would be nice to focus everyone on a single battle and have a way to ensure that happens. Otherwise, we end up with odd hours or more than one boss level open.

    Hi Shan!

    Today is the end of "next week"; do you have any updated information on when 9.2.0 will be available?

    Due to newer bugs having appeared last minute, which is not unheard of when doing testing after an engine update, the release of 9.2.0 is delayed. We're hoping that next week we'll be able to start the release process :)
  • Thank you for the update!
    I'm a software developer, I fully understand "newer bugs having appeared last minute"
