New CTF Map[edit]

  • An early version of Ice Coaster has been added to the game.
  • “Ice Coaster is inspired by Tribes 1 legacy map Rollercoaster”
  • Added to the CTF All Maps rotation.
  • Added to the featured list with Terminus.
  • Terminus and Ice Coaster are now available to be run on private servers.


Gameplay[edit]

  • All active devices have been rebalanced. See PTS 2 weapon stats spreadsheet.
  • Additional optimizations have been made to improve network performance.
  • Projectile collision sizes have been adjusted to be similar across devices.
  • Impact projectiles size set to 15, up from 10.
  • Timed explosives size set to 20, down from 42.
  • Automatic projectile sizes set to 25, down from 50.
  • All explosive damage falloff has been converted to linear falloff.

“Linear falloff allows players to adjust how much damage vs. impulse they get from disk jumping and other explosives. It also rewards better shots for skilled players, allows for larger explosions increasing new player's likelihood to hit, and is a simpler system to understand.”

  • Removed direct hit bonus on almost all weapons, greatly reduced on others.
  • Removed minimum damage clamping
  • Increased all explosive radii

Call-ins removed[edit]

“Requiring Call-ins to clear defensive stacking is not fun, nor does it promote skill-based gameplay and teamwork. We have made appropriate adjustments to nerf stacking and are subsequently able to remove call-ins. The deployable inventory station will be coming back in another form in a future PTS.”

The following weapons have been changed back to hitscan. Damage and falloff values were also adjusted.[edit]

“This was an over-aggressive change to high-ping players that negatively impacted their ability to play the game in its current state. The hitscan weapons damage and falloff values have been adjusted to be balanced with other non-hitscan sidearms.”

  • Light: Sparrow
  • Medium: Eagle
  • Heavy: Nova Colt

The following weapons have been set to utilize 100% inheritance[edit]

“At the community’s request, a set of 100% inheritance automatic weapons have been added to each armor.”

  • Light: Falcon SMG
  • Medium: NJ4 SMG
  • Heavy: X1 LMG

Numerous stealth gameplay adjustments[edit]

  • A stealthed player may not pick up or return the flag.
  • Stealth pack now reveals when you are jetting.
  • Stealth pack may not be active while the flag is being carried.
  • When a pack is toggled on, such as a shield or stealth pack, the health regen timer is reset. It then starts over from the beginning once the pack is turned off.

The Phase Rifle now locks a passive energy pack into your pack slot overriding whatever was there before.[edit]

There are some known issues here with the UI. The old pack will appear locked in the pack slot. However, an energy pack is actually locked in the slot. The in-game hud shows the correct pack however.

  • All shotguns have had their spread reduced and patterns adjusted.
  • Deployable explosives have had their damage reduced and impulse increased.
  • Screen shake has been reduced by 50%, and its length also reduced by 30%.
  • The Rocket Turret has been moved to Heavy armor.
  • Vehicles no longer require credits to purchase.


Equipment Changes[edit]

Current loadout spreadsheet

Weapon Class System[edit]

“Weapons have been simplified and condensed down to a less overwhelming number. Weapons will come back in a later patch if they offer additional gameplay value. Damage numbers, ammo counts, radii, and falloff have all been modified to further balance the game.”

  • Impact - Explode on impact
  • Automatics - Rapid fire weaponry
  • Timed - Fuse timed explosives
  • Sidearms - Small backup weaponry
  • Short Range - High damage short range weaponry
  • Speciality - Armor specific weaponry

Finally, air control and ski control values have been adjusted to limit heavy capping viability. Essentially, heavies can get around the map easier but flag running is not viable.”

  • Determination
  • Looter
  • Pilot
  • Potential Energy

  • Deployable explosives are now limited to 1 out per player.

NOTE: There are known usability issues and UI deficiencies associated with this transition that make it more difficult than it should be to both equip your weapons and to understand what you have equipped. There are also known bugs with the display on the HUD of your equipped weapons. We want to test this system on PTS prior to finalizing the User Interface, as feedback from testing could lead to changes in the overall design, which may in turn impact the user interface.


UI[edit]

A work in progress weapon loadout bar is now enabled by default. It shows the following:

  • Weapon slots, belt items, and packs equipped.
  • Keys bound to these slots
  • Which weapon slot is currently selected
  • Active and Passive reload progress
  • Ammo for each slot
  • Credit Counter / Call-ins UI has been removed as we move towards removing credits.
  • Once a weapon is picked while outfitting your loadout you are automatically brought back to the base level of your currently selected loadout.
