Kuro Games confirmed major compensation to all players who have been dealing with bugs in Wuthering Waves version 1.0. Here’s everything you’ll be able to receive for free in Wuthering Waves, including Shell Credits, Astrite, and more.

Wuthering Waves 1.0 offers a huge expansive experience that promises to bring tons of new content in each update. However, Kuro Games admitted that some in-game systems haven’t been working correctly, and decided to issue compensation for all players while they work on solving most problems.

Here’s every compensation reward in Wuthering Waves, including its distribution time, eligibility, expiration date, and how to redeem it.

Wuthering Waves developed Echo recycling compensation rewards

  • Rewards: Shell Credit ×1,000,000
  • Distribution time: By 23:59 on June 10, 2024 (UTC+8)

Kuro Games found that the Echo recycling system in Wuthering Waves 1.0 wasn’t giving the right amount of Shell Credits after a developed Echo was recycled, which heavily impacted the game’s balance. Here’s what the devs described:

“As part of the measures to minimize the event’s impact on the fairness within the player community, we informed the players of the situation and announced that we would remove all additional Shell Credits obtained unexpectedly as a result of this bug within 14 business days and issue compensations accordingly.

However, due to the urgency of this issue, we failed to issue an announcement of this issue in the first instance, which regrettably caused negative experiences for our players. We sincerely apologize for our improper way of handling this situation and the inconvenience caused.”

“Upon discovering this issue, we promptly corrected the description and issued compensations to all Rovers. We have also initiated a comprehensive internal review of the localized versions of the in-game texts across all the languages that we support.

Any corrections or improvements made during the process will be included in the upcoming updates. We sincerely apologize for this mistake and want to reassure you that we’re committed to continuously improving the quality of our localization to better the experience for all Rovers,” they’ve said.
