  • Hey Reithur,
    Just an FYI for the team;

    There’s currently an issue with Taurant spawning without a weapon for some players.
    Switching class or reconnecting doesn’t seem to fix it.
    Powers are still usable as well as parry.


  • Very good stuff Beta3, unique Character Customization . Certainly shaping up this game tbh. Note above post that
    stuff in bugs derailing pleb.

  • @Zet Try changing weapons on the customization screen.

  • @Reithur I think that has been reported as tested without result, either. I’ve seen a few people around that has this issue with Taurant, luckily I haven’t had this issue myself.

    EDIT: I’m slow. I’ll ask people to do that if they encounter that issue. Thanks Reithur. :)

  • Increased jump height feels amazing, also love the fix with the riposte animations and being able to hop when stamina is empty. freedom is good

    now to make jumping feel even better, could use a UI cooldown notification for the jumping to minimize spacebar mashing when trying to be fast and keep the timing of the presses nice and smooth

    good patch ty

    EDIT: now that i think about it a UI indication of the time until you return to idle from being knocked down/stunned by an ability would help the feel and responsiveness of the game immensely as well
