Call of Duty: WW2 devs accidentally gave everyone double XP from launch

Call of Duty: WW2 devs accidentally gave everyone double XP from launch

It was an odd move but it had to be done to due to some adverse effects introduced by Call of Duty WW2's latest Game Update.

In a blog post addressing the issues, Sledgehammer told fans that it is addressing these problems regarding the server and connection, with a promise to return to normality in the near future.

However, the good news is that developers are going to go back dedicated servers soon.

During the weekend we learned that the Call of Duty: WWII 2XP weekend was actually a 3XP weekend because the game was accidentally in a 2XP mode since launch.

Sledgehammer Games said a PC-specific title update is ready for release, but it wants to fix the constant connection issues, which also affect PC players, before it's available to the public.

Dedicated servers will be tested in the United States today.

His comment has been down voted 270 times by Reddit members furious at the lack of communication by Sledgehammer, amidst a cluster of issues - including persistent server problems - plaguing the game's release period.

Although originally launched with dedicated servers and a bustling social Headquarters feature, most PS4 & Xbox One users are left asking, "Why Am I alone in Headquarters?"

Unfortunately this dedicated server problem isn't the only thing that's impacting the experience for Call of Duty WW2 players.

The double XP event that's been extended for one more day is now scheduled to end on November 14 at 10 a.m. PT, so get in as much Call of Duty time as you can tonight before the XP gains drop off.

How are you liking Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer so far?

On dedicated servers, the post continues: "This weekend we rolled out various test solutions in limited markets in order to fully analyze real-world conditions without risking disruption". At 10 AM Pacific today the game will revert to 1XP, which means leveling will be much slower than it was since the game launched. This issue also caused loss of data so players will surely be happy when this update rolls out.

"So early players, you got a huge head start".
