The sale is comprised of three different categories, professional tools, joyride and best look! Each category has different items on sale and we will cycle through each category one at a time during the Holidays!
AIRFIELD MAP REWORK AND TERRAIN UPDATE
We have shifted focus away from the new assault map and into the current maps to make sure they are on par with the gameplay experience we have envisioned. This includes but is not limited to some terrain fixes! To that extent, the Airfield map has been the main focus of update 1.17 – more cover for infantry, new routes for flanking and a better experience all-together!
Terrain fixes have been deployed on Samrée Depot, Sawmill, Airfield, Factory and Mountain Town maps. This should fix much of the uneven terrain and we will continue to monitor and correct any terrain issues.
NEW RTS FEATURE: RESOURCE DEPLOYMENT QUEUE
Assault Teams will now be put into an account based queue. When your account is No. 1 in queue you will have your prioritized Assault Team deployed if resources are available, then your account will go back to the bottom of the queue.
This feature will allow all players to have a fair chance in deploying their Assault Teams while introducing more strategic planning of which Assault Teams to deploy first.
We have recently set up a new way to build our houses, in update 1.17 we are soft-launching one of the new houses on Colmar Hamlet map with many more to come!
We have upgraded the American Truck, 1/4 ton, 4×4, the German Kübelwagen Typ 72 and the Soviet GAZ-67 to PBR. They now look better, have a speedometer, better glass effects and a lot more details.
Fixed an issue with Special Classes not being limited in the matchmaker. Special Classes joining a match are once again limited to 6 in total with a limit of 4 per type.
