Wuthering Waves Compensation List & Reward Duration – Main Image

Wuthering Waves’ launch was nothing short of rocky, marred by the immense pre-release hype that quickly turned sour as players encountered a slew of issues preventing them from even playing the game. So far, Kuro Games has quickly acknowledged the frustration, offering apologies and generous compensation.

While hotfixes have addressed some issues, others persist. Players report a sudden loss of background music, and the world continues to suffer from lag, stuttering, and audio cutouts. On top of that, many players find the Echo-leveling system, a core character ascension component, to be excessively grindy. Kuro Games recently addressed these ongoing issues in an official notice.

We apologize for the deficiencies and issues present in Wuthering Waves, our first fully independently developed and globally published game at Kuro Games. We understand that this has affected your gaming experience, and we are working to improve it for those who love the game.
