|UCP migration: Calculation errors fixed [Edit]|
Dear editors, Fandom has just fixed the calculation errors that appeared all over Asphalt Wiki. If a page still displays wrong numbers and errors, please purge it by adding "?action=purge" to the URL in your bowser to force the cached version to be cleared.
|Irregularities due to Asphalt Wikis's migration to UCP [Edit]|
Fandom has now moved Asphalt Wiki to the Unified Community Platform (UCP). Unfortunately, they have changed several visual aspects without notice and have created bugs that severely affect the functionality of our site. As for the slightly distorted layout you may see on some pages, this is something we can fix ourselves in the next few days. Much worse are the functional bugs. These affect nearly all calculations on Asphalt Wiki and cause error messages and even wrong values all over our site. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL STATS, PRICES, UPGRADE VALUES, DROP RATES AND OTHER CALCULATED VALUES ON ASPHALT WIKI ARE NOT RELIABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! We apologize for the inconvenience and are doing our best to make Fandom get their stuff right as quickly as possible.
|Asphalt Wiki history project (2): The navigation bar [Edit]|
Part 2 of our tour introduces the history navigation bar. It is placed at the top of every history page, and its goal is to make every section accessible with only one click, no matter where you are.
The "Pages" row provides access not only to single day pages but also to overviews of time-limited events, special events and updates, filtered by game. The links in the "Categories" row have the same names but lead to the corresponding categories instead, each one sorted by name or date. The table of content (TOC) on history pages has been moved into the third line where it only appears when you move the mouse over the link. This is to prevent huge TOCs from blocking one quarter of a page before users get to see the actual content. Go to July 19 and have a look!
Special thanks go to WKPQ, Damian103 and AntoniuCalacean who are doing a great job by tagging, adding and creating pages to make the Asphalt history overviews more and more complete each day.
|Asphalt Wiki history project (1): Day pages are ready! [Edit]|
To our editors: Let your readers see what happened on that day! You can now turn every day of the year into a link by simply putting it into the usual double square brackets, for example [[June 24]]. Many of the day pages may still be empty but June 24 already gives an impression how they will look like as we continue converting our archives into the new system. In the coming days, we will inform you about more new features of the history project. In the meantime you can try it out and turn a few days into links.
|Goodbye, Asphalt Overdrive [Edit]|
Today we noticed that Asphalt Overdrive cannot be started any more. It seems that the game servers have been shut down. The 2014 spin-off drew some criticism for its endless runner gameplay that marked a departure from Asphalt's traditional racing mode. Nonetheless, it could attract many retro fans over the years.
|Average Fusion Coin value [Edit]|
Asphalt Wiki now displays Asphalt 8 Pro Kit Boxes with their average Fusion Coin value per card, based on statistical data. This may help players who open boxes for Fusion Coins and not for specific cards. An overview table can also be seen on Average card frequencies (Asphalt 8).
By the way, the current average value from the most common boxes is 843 per card, so players should have no illusions about getting more in the long run.
|Tuning Kit ads available again for German players [Edit]|
Since October 16, German players had their Tuning Kit ad button blocked by an ad for Falken Tyres. After talks of Asphalt Wiki and Falken Tyres, the company has now ordered Gameloft to remove the ad. Players can watch their daily booster videos again. Official statement from Falken Tyres: "All users should have the possibility to enjoy the game untroubled, because Falken stands for the fun of driving instead of anger. So we decided to stop our booster option to avoid misunderstandings. Julia Schehl, Marketing Department, Falken Tyre Europe GmbH."
|Official Patch Notes for the 2019 Halloween Update [Edit]|
Asphalt Wiki is proud to announce that we are now officially authorized to host Asphalt 8 Patch Notes. The Patch Notes for the 2019 Halloween Update will be released tomorrow. You can already see them here.
|Tuning Kits blocked by Falken Tyres ad [Edit]|
Players in Europe are currently experiencing a removed ad button for Tuning Kits. We have reported this to Falken Tyres. The company was not aware that their ad is obstructing players. They apologize for the inconveniences and have announced to contact the game developers immediately in order to solve the problem as quickly as possible.
|Asphalt Wiki has a new front page [Edit]|
Our main page has been completely reorganized and redesigned. The focus was to make it a good starting point and provide all important information right on the first page. A small version of our news feed has been integrated, as well as recent wiki activity and blog posts which were somewhat lost at the bottom of the page in the previous version. Tell us what you think!
|We've grown too big to be ignored [Edit]|
Gameloft has officially contacted the Asphalt Wiki admins and will consider the site as having influencer status from now on, like the youtubers. This means that we will hopefully get some information earlier than official releases and can share it on our pages. Let's see what the future brings. We have made clear that a collaboration will in no way change our style of publishing or let us follow any rules other than our own.
