  • Change: Reverted civilian looking girl soundset from "HELP" to previous voicelines.

Amazing!

Fix: Alt frag grenade will no longer knockdown on direct impact when it shouldn't be doing so.

This encourage QT to be more used indeed. And reduce the impact of other classes using grenades. Yet I think it's abit sad, for the skill required to properly land it on someone was higher than before, when simply throwing it on the ground blindlessly.
I liked that "bug-feature" and felt it wasn't too much impactful (As opposed to the previous design we had).
Having Concusive and Frag being very similar (too similar...) Is abit sad.

Change: Anti-TK System
Fantastic changes, smart and very well needed.


Any plan regarding the bug concerning the class limitation ?
Thanks for the update.

They may not be the same in the future, there are ideas on how to differentiate them more, but it is a bit down the line as we want to tackle some other things first.

I have an idea to try, idk if its gonna work or not. We will see if I have time to do it before the next release.

A very nice patch overall, lots of good little changes, but this kinda caught my attention:

Assisting in team killing someone within 5 seconds of their death grants you an equal amount of TK points to as if you had killed them yourself.

Now, I understand why this was implemented, but I think it may hurt the gameplay more than helping it. Can't say for sure this early, but it does look like a potential annoyance in every gunfight, as accidental friendly hits are not uncommon.

Still, good update, cheers!

Frag nade knocking down people on direct hit wasn't removed.
There were some edge cases where it was knocking down classes that should not have been knocked down (SBD). The bug fix accounts for those cases.

  • held.
WHY?????????!??????
because the ability was incredibly niche, and the few times it does happen are usually accidental inputs because someones trying to crouch to either punch someone on the ground or to become immune to force abilities, the only time I ever see good players use it is to put out fire quicker, and most of the new players who use it end up using it less and less the more they play the game.

Basically to remove frequent accidental inputs while not removing the ability from the game.

The way I understood it is, you only get this if both the kill and assist were red. If kill was a white (normal kill) and you had a red assist then those extra points do not happen.

If it's any different then devs clearly don't play open, lol

Undeadstar constantly travels through a wormhole and sometimes it ends up in the galaxy of MB2 then leaves. >.>
