  • Very good news I must say :)



  • Very great news indeed! Awesome patch guys. Trying to test it out now. Is the patch not pushed lived? Usually if it was, Steam would bring up a prompt to automatically download the patch, but when I launch the launcher for Chiv Beta, and choose MW, the splash screen comes up like normal for ~10 seconds and crashes everytime, dang.

    edit: oop 2.9gb patch being pushed through now, hopefully it fixes my issue.



  • Sticky projectile (throwing weapons, arrows) now properly display on surfaces
    Death animations now properly play
    Dropped weapons now properly show

    Blood splatter on weapons will now properly display

    Spawn time Added for every 20 dmg done to team members

    Now this is interesting.



  • Seeing as the optimizations for DW maps did wonders, i’m confident we’ll see something great with this patch!



  • inb4 everything is broken



  • When can we expect this to go live? Friday?



  • Don’t rush it. Let’s try to find all the bugs before it goes live.

    I’m kind’ve happy to see the team damage longer respawns coming to MW from DW. I’m also very happy about FFA finally getting chase mechanic. While I think the 20 second timer wait between LTS start is great for clan battles, it’s gonna’ make those LTS rounds in classic pubs really obnoxious. I think it should be an option, like the enemy markers, or at least lowered to 10 seconds.

    The reasoning for LTS timer change in pubs recently the game would immediately start when there was 1 or 2 players on each team. This would mean slow loaders (a lot more slow loaders with the last update) would have to wait until next round to spawn. I’d always see full servers on LTS having around 20+ people waiting for next round when the map changed.

    I wouldn’t say it’s obnoxious by any stretch, it is definitely a step in the right direction. Having it customisable so server owners can change how long the timer is a neat idea however.



  • Please keep in mind, the maps are currently in flux as we continue to optimize and improve them. This is just the first pass on them.

    Bad idea.

    Make it an option which should be turned off by default.



  • See, all this optimization and small easy to find bugs should have been done at the ending of the development process, BEFORE the game was release. Sorry I just had to say it. Not saying I’m not happy with this update so far, but still.



  • @rumpelstiltskin:

    I could not agree more. This should be a server side option and default turned off.

    Still no fix for the bubble? Seriously?



  • OMG! OMG! OMG!
    I’ve never been so happy. This looks very very promising.

    • Jumping is now possible with no stamina

    Finally, my erratic play-style can be rewarded :D

    Going to have to test this update thoroughly, there are a lot of changes. Just need to download 4.3gb first :/

    Well its not a bug. Just an annoying feature.



  • Defending on stoneshill the peasants count as teammates, so don’t do what I did and smack them and die. 186 seconds to spawn.

    It doesnt need to be a bug for it to be fixed. I would not even call it a feature but the most stupid idea since Toe 2 Toe.
