Spotting system update

The recent Patton build saw the reintroduction of the “Spotting Feature” where you can spot enemies and tell your teammates, and you get an indication of who and what they spot. We saw a LOT of feedback on this, from well thought-out ideas for improvements and suggestions for polish over players being very happy with how much easier it became to deal with spawn campers to other players who, in polite terms, did not agree with the spotting feature coming back.

For those of you who remember this back from alpha, we had a spotting system which we now have decided to get back in and iterate on – the old version worked much like this one, with round blobs above soldiers’ heads, this was turned off when the GUI/HUD was updated.

Over the last couple of weeks the spotting system has gone through a number of iterations, with the help and feedback from the community, and we are now getting ready to roll out the next improved iteration.

Server & Login Status Update

We are still working hard to increase the current player limit. A series of hotfixes and optimizations will be rolled out as soon as we have tested them properly – hopefully today.

Helle Mr. Server! Catch!

Hello Mr. Server! Catch!

These hotfixes will most likely allow us to have a higher cap on the servers than the current 2200 concurrent players, but it is still too early to tell what the cap can be raised to – we will roll out the fixes and slowly turn up the cap until the servers starts to misbehave.

We will also introduce a login queue, so you can get into the game in a more controlled manner, and at the same time you’ll be able to see your place in the queue.
