Hello Explorers! It's been another quiet week on the JWA front and we hope that means they are hard at work on the next update!
They did announce that the Giga scents and extended drone ranges would now be active through July 31st and there is currently a Titanoboa pursuit on the map, but that's the only real news we have heard.
Last week was the last Family to be revealed and we haven't seen any teaser at all this week. We are hoping those notes will come soon, however, as we are still anxiously awaiting these big changes they keep hinting at! The arena is getting stale for many, so much so that we even felt the need to write an opinion piece about it. In other news, they gave more information on when notes would come (or when they wouldn't come) and GamePress will now be featuring weekly cash links in their articles! So let's get to it.
Op Ed: The Immune Meta is a Mess
We know this new update will bring some big changes and the biggest topic of discussion lately is the Immune Meta and what it is doing to the game. Bart recently wrote an opinion piece on the matter and we got some very positive feedback about his thoughts. They seem to mirror many current JWA player's minds. Here's what he had to say:
There are some strange times in the game right now. Ludia has been teasing the next update with releasing creature families for quite a couple of weeks now and people are expecting some big changes. However, as these teasers keep rolling out at a slow pace, we also realize that the majority of the player base is on the verge of quitting. In our Discord server and on the Forums there are people repeatedly mentioning how they are so frustrated at a couple of things that cause them to (nearly) quit the game and also mention how the next update will be make or break for them. One of the biggest complaints is about the Arena. The Arena as of now is getting stale, with certain creatures running around that dictate what should be run or not by players: Immune creatures. That’s right, I’m attacking the big ones here, and I will be talking about how Immunity destroyed the Arena (at least for me, but I’m pretty sure that there are more people who feel this way).

Update on Patch Notes
Spoiler Alert: They aren't coming today or Monday.
Every Friday for the past month people start hyping themselves up for the expectation of patch notes. We know they have to be coming soon but we don't know exactly when to expect them. Today was no different as the forums and our discord with the buzz of anticipation. It didn't take long for that excitement to go away, however as a mod on the forum made the following announcement in a thread:
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but today still won't be the day we get the highly anticipate notes for the next patch. We know people are waiting to see what to expect, but at this point all we can do is be patient about it. They will be released when they are ready and then we can all board the hype train together and get excited about it.
