Update March 2, 2020


Gameplay Changes

  1. All spawn icons are now much more legible on the map.
  2. Disabled "weapon sway" from Binos for Axis and Allies as players are having trouble marking accurately.
  3. Increase the drowning timer from 4 seconds to 6 seconds.
  4. Make all deadly rivers have a longer bank that will let you back out before falling in and drowning.
  5. Tanks crew now drown if they fully submerge their tank for too long.
  6. Jumbo tanks are now present on most other maps and game modes while we test their effectiveness and balance.
  7. Fixed: On the Enlist screen, changing the filter order multiple times will present the user with a server that they cannot join.
  8. Added audio menu volume slider for Ping Marker.
  9. Maximum marker count for Officers is now 5, and then resets the first marker thereafter.
  10. Maximum marker count for Commanders is now 5, and then resets the first marker thereafter.
  11. Maximum of one of each marker type.
  12. Quicker PING Fade.
  13. Changed resource node marker to tent icon node marker.
  14. Removed extra smoke marker but have left the "Request Smoke" marker.
  15. Markers now have a different volume at different ranges. i.e 500m+ plays no sound. It then gets progressively louder the closer they are. This is designed to cut down on audio clutter and give urgency to nearby marks.
