Technical update
Technical update important

Mercenaries! The time has come for the first technical update of 2017! Please note that it is primarily aimed at solving the matchmaking duration issues and enemy/team balancing:

  • Added map and mode unlock progression - now the game modes and maps will be unlocked gradually for new players. For instance, players below level 5 will only have access to day Bay 5 map in Deathmatch mode. This change, we hope, will lead to a much quicker matchmaking for new players, concentrating them on them most basic and easy to master location and ensuring the smooth learning curve for entering the game.
  • Temporarily turned off training matches - all matches are now considered rating by default. Considering the Early Access status, the number of players simultaneously in game separated into two modes was not always sufficient for a quick matchmaking. That’s why we turned of the training mode for the time being.
  • The value of player rating - and rating of the opponents - has been increased and now plays the leading role in matchmaking. We assume that will create a better balanced matches for you.
  • We’ve decreased number of maximum player from 8 to 6 on Bay 5 map which should lead to overall improvement of gameplay pacing on this map.

We’ve also made a number of technical bugfixes that influenced the performance and stability of some of the game features.
