Master your own destiny! Command a nation!

Keating is online!

The new build named Keating (after the American Major General Frank A. Keating) is live on the servers!

New Features

Tier-based matchmaking

Tier-based match-making is here. The game will automatically try to sort players into groups depending on tier. This will make it easier for new players to learn the game. Read more here.

Battlesystem

If the defender wins a mission, ATs for attacking faction will retreat from the battle location. Yesterdays guest blog explains a bit about it here.

Level polish and performance updates

Reto.Ratamahat keeps making the levels both play and look better. Here has detailed his work in a two three-part blog. Here is Part 1 and Part 2 & Part 3

There are of course more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…

Minor stuff

Here is a list of some additional features in the Keating build.

  • Minor VFX tweaks.
  • Minor HUD changes – Action game progress indicators
  • Minor HUD changes – Team color is now Yellow not Green
  • Minor HUD changes – Improved damage indicator
  • Minor HUD changes – Squad Leader icon changed to triangle
  • Metrics added to gather more data on player behavior and improve statistics
  • Animations detached from skeleton, to improve resource loading and performance
  • Use native desktop resolution when starting the action game for the first time
  • Chat: Links disabled pr. default, go to options to enable.
  • Strategy: Mission Details only show assault teams in the mission, both numbers and on minimap if possible.

Mobile Command

The Mobile Command app moves along on its own release cycle (when at all possible) so the current version is compatible with the Keating build when it goes live. A much requested new feature is the ability to search for battlefields, as well as bug fixes and performance improvements on both iOS and Android

For a more detailed changelog take a look here: Changelog on the wiki.

  11. WillhelmWillhelm08-06-2013

    Just a question: Why you keep naming the updates/builts in the game by something that is related to WWII era? I thought we play “Unreal tournament” type of game.

  12. kAAMEhAMEkAAMEhAME08-06-2013

    Thats a good begin to make your game better.
    but whats more important “PLEASE DEAR RETO TEAM BAN MUTLIACCOUNTS”

    This “tiered’ match making is the worst idea you’ve had. Please remove it. Promptly. Lots of the other changes are great, but the I don’t want to play with a bunch of low levels only who don’t know how to play.

    • fagadabafagadaba08-07-2013

      Then prove yourself worthy and move on to the next tier.

    • sniper23sniper2308-07-2013

  15. GerhachtGerhacht08-07-2013

    You Need to work on small things to make the (game) world better… right? Game mechanics, Game mechanics and Game mechanics Need some more effort. FPS/Heroes is nice already GJ! Please make a Major RTS update for the L-build.

  16. Reto.Robotron3000Reto.Robotron300008-10-2013

    We wanted to push out this build as it contains a lot of behind-the-scenes work for profiling performance. AND it has a major performance fix.

    We decided to push the build out now so people can play the game instead of waiting for more content, I am sure you will agree that this is a good thing.

    The tier-based match-making is one of the most requested and needed features for a long while, so calling it unwanted is simply wrong.

    Have nice weekend,

    Can you please hurry up and add some new content such as the; M1 Carbine, Browning Pistol, Webley Revolver etc. other than that the build looks good :)

    Wait, is this a update or what?

    Well if you are going to name the K build for General Keating you should pick this much closer to the battelfield General Anthony Clement “Nuts” McAuliffe for the next revision M build,
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_McAuliffe

    On December 22, 1944, through a party consisting of a major, a lieutenant, and two enlisted men under a flag of truce that entered the American lines southeast of Bastogne (occupied by Company F, 2nd Battalion, 327th Glider Infantry), General von Lüttwitz sent the following ultimatum to Gen. McAuliffe:

    To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne.

    The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in German hands.

    There is only one possibility to save the encircled U.S.A. troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the presentation of this note.

    If this proposal should be rejected one German Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The order for firing will be given immediately after this two hours term.

    All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the well-known American humanity.
    The German Commander.

    The response to the German Commander went like this:

    —————-

    To the German Commander.

    NUTS!

    The American Commander

    ————-

    The German major appeared confused and asked Harper what the message meant. Harper said, “In plain English? Go to hell.”[3] The choice of “Nuts!” rather than something earthier was typical for McAuliffe. Vincent Vicari, his personal aide at the time, recalled that “General Mac was the only general I ever knew who did not use profane language. ‘Nuts’ was part of his normal vocabulary.”[4]
