as we talked about these topics yesterday on State of the Game #151, we wanted to also update you on the forums about Control Points and the Seasonal Manhunt and how these features interact with the Global Difficulty change. We previously stated that the Control Points should reset when changing the Global Difficulty and this will be our intent moving forward.

Currently, Control Points don’t get taken over unless an Invasion is happening, or a Manhunt Target takes over a zone. In an upcoming patch, you will be able to reset Control Points when you change Global Difficulty so that you can choose to reset your map and replay the Control Points if you wish.

For the Seasonal Manhunt, we will enable a separate interaction to reset the targets and be able to replay the Named Zones connected to them. You currently can reset the progress by changing the Global Difficulty, but it also means that you can reset your ongoing progress by accident. When the feature has been implemented you will have the option to just reset the Zones that are connected to the Manhunt and we currently plan to add this option in the Seasonal Manhunt UI to clearly separate it from the Global Difficulty change.

We are aware that Directives are currently not staying active consistently and are also resetting the Manhunt progress. Both are not intended and in a future update, Directives will stay active regardless of you changing the area you are currently playing in and they will no longer reset Seasonal Manhunt Progress.
