Escape From Tarkov Wipe and Installment of Patch 12.12 Confirmed for Tomorrow?

From certainty, to bamboozlery. Not much, just a whole lot of shame.

Update #2: I found the BETA EFT Announcer that used to announce upcoming features and changes to the game. It still doesn’t have verified status but as I am aware, it’s in belonging to BSG. That account does not hold any information regarding the possible wipe for tomorrow. Therefore, I do believe we’ve been bamboozled. With this behind us, we can say that the only way to find out if there’s a wipe tomorrow is to wait until the time comes.

So far, we’re only left with the 12.12 tease on Battlestate Games’ official Instagram profile and the Newspaper Issue no.1212. Therefore, all indicators point towards a tomorrow wipe.

Update #1: The tweet posted by @BetaEFT is unofficial and probably fake, so we’d rather wait for official confirmation by Battlestate Games’ Twitter. Why did we post this information? Excited like you are, this information was posted because Escape From Tarkov has an official EFT BETA announcer, which sadly does not have the Twitter “verified” status. So, I am unsure if this is an official announcer or a scam, simply due to the fact that Battlestate Games had a similar announcer profile on Twitter that had more followers. Yes, there have been some scammers making similar Escape From Tarkov BETA Announcer accounts, which for some reason appeared in my personal Twitter feed. As you know, the tweet claimed that the wipe and patch installment is supposed to go live tomorrow, for which we cannot confirm, at least not until Battlestate Games official Twitter profile confirms the same.

I do believe and hope the update goes live tomorrow, and I am genuinely sorry for playing with your feelings. I know the feeling, as I’ve fallen for the same trickery if it’s one. Just to clarify, I am not fishing for visits or anything like that. I am an avid Escape From Tarkov player with over 3000 hours in the game, and a fresh wipe is like a godsend to me. Therefore, please don’t judge me.

Still developing…

Old Writing – Unreliable

Escape From Tarkov’s patch 12.12 will arrive tomorrow, and the developer has finally confirmed it. First, the developer teased the installment day via an image for later the pre-wipe events to come in session. One week after the tease, Escape From Tarkov’s BETAEFT channel on Twitter (it’s an official one that provides users with updates) confirmed that the update would be deployed tomorrow at 10:00 GMT +3.

The maintenance is supposed to last for around 18-22 hours, and the patch notes will remain unknown because BSG wants us to see the changes for ourselves first. Usually, the patch notes arrive in the next three days if my memory serves me well, so we’ll get them eventually.

Suspicious EFT Beta Announcer

Are you ready for all the coming changes? The new VoIP feature will allow you to be communicating with your friends and enemies in-game, so that’s one h*** of a surprise. Furthermore, even if you’re the biggest chad, you will no longer be able to push enemies due to the player inertia system. So, what would your approach be? Tell us in the comments below!

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.

    1. Yeah, I was working on an update in the meantime no worries, the article changed. Nevertheless, the update should be tomorrow. The sad part is that I cannot even find the official EFT Announcer profile on Twitter.

    1. Yes, I am aware I am working on an update. Have no clue why it appeared on my Twitter feed, so I got excited and jumped straight into writing an article. No worries though, an article update has been pushed.

  1. Inertia doesn’t stop nor prevent anyone from pushing players. Maybe it might stop someone (you) who’s scared to push, giving the excuse to blame BSG for your lack of fortitude, but not anyone else. Would love to hear your excuses for why you believe this and are perpetuating this rumor.

    1. Clearing angles wouldn’t be as easy as before as you would not be able to peek that fast. So if a guy is hiding in a room I doubt you’ll go and try to find out his position by strafing left and right, because your change of direction would slow your character and you’ll most likely eat a headshot before even realize where he is. So yeah, it will be a lot harder. I have over 3k hours in the game, and I believe that this will be a lot harder now.
