General

Structured Player vs. Player

General

  • Daily Automated Tournament: Increased rewards.
  • Monthly Automated Tournament: The first-place team no longer receives a reward-track potion. Instead, the first-place team will receive a unique gizmo that will enhance the user with a special effect.

Lobby

  • The free-for-all arena has been updated to prevent players from firing into the arena from safe locations.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed players to get outside of map boundaries.
  • Fixed an issue in which personal-story markers were inaccurately displayed.

Revenge of the Capricorn

  • The Maritime Defense achievement will now progress as expected around the Archway control point.

World vs. World

General

  • Outnumbered is now applied each scoring tick (every 5 minutes). Swapping to a map right before a tick will no longer grant an Outnumbered pip bonus. Instead, you must play on an Outnumbered map for an entire tick to earn the bonus.
  • Consume All now works for Badges of Honor.
  • The Skirmish Chest now opens a vendor window instead of an item-selection window. This will allow multiple items to be selected from the chest.
  • Participation decay timers have been adjusted so that players must be more active to keep participation from decaying.
  • Three new commander icon colors have been added: cyan, magenta, and white.
