8th March, 2013[edit]

  • New Roleplay texts have been added: (list to be added)
  • Watchmen bug fixes:
    • Fixed the Watchmen entering/leaving watch without selection.
    • Certain objects collected for use in a watch or otherwise occasionally disappeared without giving the correct defensive bonus.
    • Objects in chests didn't disappear after a watch.
    • The defense taking into account the statuses of the watchmen is worked out prior to the attack.
  • Construction Sites changes:
    • The Great Moat is no longer a temporary construction.
    • The Gallows is no longer a temporary construction.
    • The Meat Locker no longer requirements blueprints (instead of [unchecked rarity] blueprint).
    • The Water Turrets now gives a 20% bonus to all water weapons used during the nights watch.
This page has automatically been added to the to do category for the following reason: the 20% bonus is wrong, confirm what was meant. The page was tagged by: isaaclw
    • The Catapult now gives a 20% bonus for animals used, and also stops watchmen becoming terrified during a watch.
  • Blueprints: Ruins in the World Beyond now offer more plans to citizens righteous enough to explore their darkest corners.
  • Ghoul changes:
  • "Picto Hunters": Certain Hordes players exploited a glitch involving searching distant ruins for distinctions, committing suicide with cyanide or dehydration, and immediately reincarnate into a new town with the gained distinctions. These players are ineligible for the new distinction: Good Guy.
    • The exploited glitch only occurred on Hordes, and so this section is irrelevant to Die2Nite and should not have been included.

Season 6 (4.0) - Death Watch[edit]

19th December, 2012[edit]

5th November, 2012[edit]

  • Unforgiving Wastelands: The chance of finding something to eat or drink in the World Beyond will diminish as time goes on. Nobody can resist the relentless onslaught from the World Beyond forever, once your town has been devastated, alia iacta est!
  • Ghoul added:
    • New Status.
    • "Partially infected" citizens who can eat any Citizen to gain 1 Hero day and 7.
    • Must consume a human or flesh related products, or die from hunger. See the page for more information.
  • Watchmen added:
    • Any citizen can opt in to provide for the town, at the expense of being wounded, terrorized or eaten.
    • Every citizen has a base 95% chance of survival, 10% chance of injury or getting terrorized, and can block 10 zombies. Being a Hero, having items or certain statuses affect the defence a citizen can provide, and their chances of survival.

Season 5 (3.2) - Shamanic Monday[edit]

6th July, 2012[edit]

  • Bug fixes:
    • Heroic spirit image on the Soul Page has been updated with an English-translated line, reading "Heroic Spirit" once again.

29th June, 2012[edit]

8th June, 2012 - Open Sesame! Close automatically![edit]

  • Brothers in Arms issue has been resolved by giving all of the player base two free hero days. In turn, Hero mode triggered made any Armageddon Witness able to use up one day that could not be used since 2nd April, preventing from successful use of Brothers in Arms.

24th May, 2012 - Zombie Attack![edit]

  • Changes to Brothers in Arms.
  • Changes to Lost Soul:
  • Further adjustments to Soul Pages:
    • New night background to accommodate the blue Twinoid profile box for it to cause less of an impact on the overall picture. In fact, the page already was linking to this background, albeit the file proper was missing, similar to some of other Season 5 content.

    • Aimless Souls deposited in The Bank are now being accounted in the town's score correctly.
    • Involuntarily page refresh issue has been addressed.

    • The Shaman can use an Aimless Soul and 1 to cause rain to fall on the Town or on any part of the World Beyond to increase water supply or purify the area and eliminate some zombies, respectively.
    • Soul locations can be pin-pointed for others to see.
  • Improvements of Lost Soul:
  • Further adjustments to Soul Pages:
    • Instead of a list, Distinctions are now being displayed as thumbnails with tool-tips, similar to the old soul pages. They still do not show if a distinction has titles to unlock or not, though. In addition, the ever criticised scroll bar is still in place.
    • Vanilla Twinoid colour scheme is switched to the one matching Die2Nite more.
  • Improvements of Forums:
    • Town forum posts now display Locations correctly: "in town or at the gates" instead of "[0,0]".
    • Town forum posts now display Jobs next to locations.
    • Roleplay threads have been returned.
    • Roleplay tags are beige again, instead of white. Safari users have reported a delay in fixing the issue with their browsers.
    • :hordes_shaman: emoticon has been added, albeit lacking the graphic file proper.
    • :chaussette: emoticon has been brought back, albeit lacking the graphic file proper.
  • An assortment of bug fixes:

26th April, 2012[edit]

  • Further adjustments to Soul Pages:
