Status effects and other updates
With the server restart on May 22nd a new update will be released.
The major changes are:
- Positive and negative effects indication (except the Flash client).
- Changes of map rank limits in MM
- Changes of rank limits of the items in the Garage
Status effects indication — What is it?
Status effects fall into two categories:
- overdrive readiness;
- overdrive duration after activation;
- immunity — ignoring damage after a respawn;
- repair kit duration;
- double armour duration;
- double damage duration;
- speed boost duration;
- extra armour (e.g., the «Defender» drone);
- extra damage (e.g., the «Booster» drone).
- fire — a tank’s temperature is above normal;
- freezing — a tank’s temperature is below normal;
- EMP — stun and supplies force reload;
- stun — a tank is not able to move (e.g. after Hunter’s OD);
Status effects are visible to all players in a battle — for you, your teammates, and your enemies.
- HTML5: positive effects are displayed above a tank’s health bar, negative — below it.
- Android: you see status effects of your teammates and enemies only.
- Flash: status effects are not displayed.
Changes of map rank limits in MM
This update will affect low ranking players only. The Matchmaking system will consider a player’s rank and choose only maps which are available for the player. You can check which maps are available for your rank on the Wiki.
Changes of rank limits of the items in the Garage
In order to improve the learning process for new players and to shift the focus on more important aspects of the game, we have changed the rank limits for supplies and the «Brutus» drone:
- The «Speed Boost» (3) and «Mine» (4) supplies are now available in the Garage starting from the Sergeant (6) rank.
- The «Double Armour» (5) and «Double Damage» (5) supplies are now available in the Garage starting from the First Sergeant (9) rank.
- The «Battery» supply (6) and «Brutus» drone (6) are now available in the Garage starting from the Corporal (4) rank.
- There are a few changes in the characteristics of the «Defender» drone:
- Effect duration time was decreased from 20 seconds to 15 seconds;
- Now consumes 2 more «Double Armour» supplies;
- The recharge time was decreased from 20 seconds to 3 seconds.
- Optimized PC performance on the Rio map.
- Few changes of the layout in the HTML5 version
