The Assault Team optimizations that we have had on prototype earlier is now in the final stretch of development.
WHAT ARE WE TESTING AND WHY?
The changes on prototype contain a major update to the game clients handling of Assault Teams. We would like you to come and help give us feedback on the UI changes and additions.
- Assault Team changes should now impact the game less and result in some performance gains.
- Assault teams are now equipped on characters using drag and drop like the rest of a characters equipment.
- Several useful windows have been made easier to access.
- Several community suggestions have been implemented into the game
- Several crashes have been found and fixed
- Squads that are created by the matchmaker are now disbanded after a game.
NB: In the forum topic linked below, we’ve also added a post with more details on the changes and improvements.
