Commanders!

We are happy to announce another addition to Armored Warfare – Update 0.21 "Eye of the Storm!

This update is bringing both new content – including the long-awaited new progression vehicles, a new PvP map and existing map overhauls – as well as a large number of changes and improvements of Balance 2.0 game mechanics and corrections of bugs. Here are some of the main features that await you:

  • New Progression Vehicles
  • Waterway PvP Map
  • PvP Map Overhauls
  • Ammunition Changes
  • Economy Changes
  • Garage UI Improvements
  • Visual Enhancement Program

New Progression Vehicles

In Update 0.21, we are introducing a series of Czechoslovak and Polish vehicles. It consists of Tier 6 to Tier 10 vehicles of AFV, TD and LT classes that are bringing new mechanics currently unique to this branch, such as the Spike-LR fire-and-forget guided missile system. The branch consists of both tracked and wheeled vehicles, which all have excellent firepower (often with very high rate of fire) and mobility for their respective tiers.

BVP Šakal – Tier 6 Armored Fighting Vehicle

The Šakal (“Jackal”) is an experimental AFV produced by Excalibur Army, a Czech military vehicle and equipment producer to replace the BVP-2 in Czech service. A prototype was built and underwent trials but was ultimately not selected to become the next mass-produced Czech IFV. It is, however, currently offered to foreign customers for export. The Šakal is armed with the 30mm 2A42 cannon and a Spike missile launcher.

KTO Rosomak – Tier 7 Armored Fighting Vehicle

Originally a Finnish modular design by Patria, the Rosomak (“Wolverine”) is a standard wheeled Infantry Fighting Vehicle of the Polish Land Forces, replacing the old OT-64. Licensed production in Poland started in 2002 and the vehicle already participated in combat operations during the War in Afghanistan. Production is expected to continue until 2019. The Rosomak does not carry any missiles but is armed with an exceptionally powerful 30mm Bushmaster autocannon.

Anders

WPB Anders – Tier 9 Light Tank

The Anders universal platform was developed as the means to provide the Polish army with an entire family of vehicles, ranging from an IFV to a powerful Light Tank that was to replace the actual Main Battle Tanks in the Polish army. This line of thought was, however, discontinued, as was the development of the Anders platform, although it recently appeared again under a different name. In Armored Warfare, the Anders is represented by a Light Tank variant with a powerful 120mm cannon.

wilk

Wilk XC-8 – Tier 10 Tank Destroyer

The Wilk (“Wolf”) is a prototype fire support vehicle based on the Rosomak chassis. It was developed as a fire support vehicle for the infantry formations carried by Rosomaks. Its initial 105mm cannon model failed to catch the Polish attention due to incompatible gun caliber, which led to an upgrade in the form of the XC-8 turret, carrying a 120mm gun. The Wilk XC-8 was unveiled to public in 2015 but it was not adopted by the Polish military either, despite its excellent performance.

Waterway PvP Map

No matter what shape the world is in, one thing will never change – the trade must flow. And few places on the planet are as important for world trade as the Panama Canal. Recently, several rogue corporations hired an unscrupulous band of mercenaries to take over the channel to pillage the ships passing through Panama’s massive waterway to drive the already exorbitant commodity prices even higher. Put an end to that, commander!

waterway

The Waterway is a brand new PvP map, coming to Armored Warfare in Update 0.21. With its 1300x1300 size, it offers all sorts of terrain for players to use to their advantage.

Ammunition Changes

Over the last weeks, we have evaluated the results of the abovementioned changes and have identified several issues with the Balance 2.0 system. These include:

  • In some cases, the shell damage is difficult to predict due to the complexity of the damage bonus system and its interaction with damage-enhancing and damage-reducing elements such as the Spall Liner for example
  • In some cases, the penetration or non-penetration of shells is unpredictable as even vehicles with very thin armor can under certain circumstances withstand high-caliber fire that should be reasonably expected to penetrate and cause damage
  • Low-tier HEAT shells are sometimes exceedingly powerful while high-tier HEAT shells are less useful than we’d like them to be with kinetic shells being superior in most situations
  • The penetration indicator is in some cases unreliable – shells can sometimes bounce off armor that is marked as green for example

Some of these issues go directly against our vision for the shell type roles. To improve the shell situation and to bring it closer to the abovementioned intent, we will be introducing several changes in Update 0.21.

Read more about them in a dedicated article!

Economy Changes

One of the topics that are hotly debated amongst players and developers alike is the Armored Warfare game economy – specifically, the rewards and their relation to in-game prices and costs. In this article, we’d like to give you an overview of our plans for the future of Armored Warfare economy.

Update 0.19 and Update 0.20 both brought significant changes to many Armored Warfare mechanics, including those that had major impact on the game’s economy. Time to kill, hitpoint amount, shell damage and armor layout – they all influenced it to a degree. After the launch of Update 0.20, we took a long hard look at the game’s economy itself as well as the player feedback on it and decided to introduce a number of changes.

Our goal is not to slow down the game progression, but to introduce a system where both the player contribution to the battle and the personal performance are justly rewarded.

Additional Garage UI Improvements

Update 0.21 is bringing further improvements to the new Garage User Interface, introduced in Update 0.20. These improvements include:

  • New Vehicle Customization Window
  • New Dealer Window
  • New Daily Challenge Window with rebalanced Challenges
  • New Battle Result window with the added option to share your results on social media
  • New Low-Requirement Garage for lower-end PCs
  • A large number of smaller changes designed to improve the UI experience based on player feedback

Further improvements to the Garage UI will be added in the future.

Visual Enhancement Program

In Update 0.21, we are taking the first steps to improve the graphics of Armored Warfare, including the vehicle model look and feel. Significant graphics updates will come in future updates, but the improved lighting system represents the beginning of the Visual Enhancement Program. At the same time, we are introducing several optimizations that will improve the game’s performance on lower-end PCs.

List of 0.21 Changes - Basic Update

Gameplay Mechanisms

Minimal Settings Garage

We added a new, minimalistic garage for all players who play Armored Warfare on weaker PCs. This garage offers higher FPS than the standard one. It can be enabled in the Settings Window.

Economy Changes

We are introducing the economy changes, described in the earlier Developer Diary. These changes include:

  • Correction of the loot crate drop rate in GLOPS in relation to the new reward system
  • Spotting reward is now awarded even if the line of sight between the spotter and the target gets broken
  • Target spotting rewards are now only applied the first time a target gets spotted

PvP reward changes include:

  • Damage reward (before taking Tier bonus and multipliers into account) in PvP is increased by 50% (from 1 to 1.5 credits per damage unit)
  • Players no longer receive Credits for kills and immobilization
  • Base reward for spotting reduced to 108 Credits
  • Base reward for winning is now 1728 Credits, the PvP victory Credit multiplier is removed
  • Team damage penalty increased to 3 Credits per damage unit
  • Target spotting rewards are now only applied the first time a target gets spotted

The idea behind these changes is to make the reward system simpler. Additionally, we have increased the base reputation income for killing an opponent to 56. PvP players will, however, no longer receive any rewards for the following actions:

  • Killing enemy crewmembers
  • Launching smoke grenades
  • Destroying enemy vehicle modules
  • Assistance
  • Assist, kill or spotting streaks

Read more about the economy changes in our In Development article.

Ammunition Changes

We’ve also changed the way HESH ammunition works. Upon impact, when it comes to penetration calculation, the shell will no longer consider the impact angle if it is lower than 60 degrees. If it’s higher than 60 degrees, effective armor will be taken into account. Ricochet angle increased to 85 degrees.

Additionally, penetrating thick armor will reduce the damage significantly while penetrating thin armor will allow players to deal a lot of damage with this type of shell. The damage is also significantly reduced when the shell detonates at some distance from the armor. If the distance is higher than 25cm, the shell deals no damage. The fragmentation diameter upon penetration (inside the vehicle) was also increased – earlier it used to be a cone with 15 degrees angle from the shell axis, this angle was now increased to 45 degrees. As a result, this type of shell is really good for destroying modules and crews, but is also sensitive to impact angle.

Additional changes include:

  • Changed the HE penetration values, now it scales with shell caliber (the higher the caliber, the higher the penetration)
  • HEAT shell damage and penetration of all shells rebalanced to correspond to their new role (some tanks receive extremely powerful HEAT shells as a result)
  • Changed the way the HEAT and HE shells interact with cage armor (meshes) – they will now detonate instead of being destroyed (this will lead to a greater chance of penetrating areas covered by cage armor with ATGMs and HEAT rounds)
  • Fixed the HEAT shell type on various tanks – DM12, DM12A1 and M830 are now HEAT-MP rounds
  • HEAT rounds now deal 20% more damage when penetrating armor (30% for tandem HEAT missiles and 35% for HEAT-MP rounds)
  • Fuse Failed (ricochet) angle for Tier 9 and Tier 10 HESH and thermobaric missiles increased from 80 to 85 degrees
  • Changed the way the HEAT and HE shells interact with cage armor (meshes) – they will now detonate instead of being destroyed (this will lead to a greater chance of penetrating areas covered by cage armor with ATGMs and HEAT rounds)

Read more about the ammunition changes in our In Development article.

General Changes

  • Changed the format of engine names in the Garage, now they also show horsepower
  • Smoke grenades now have real names (with the exception of the T-14 and T-15)
  • Player statistics will no longer take bugged battles that ended immediately after their start with a “Draw” result, existing statistics will be re-calculated
  • Artillery now sees spotted enemies regardless of distance towards them in the aiming mode (the “artillery render range” issue)
  • Fixed the bugged challenge to immobilize enemies, now it’s being tracked correctly
  • Reduced various delays in the spotting system to improve its performance
  • ATGMs rebalanced – their damage and penetration now uses the same formulas as shells
  • ATGM reload now starts immediately after the shot, not when the missile explodes
  • The engine fire mechanism was overhauled. Damaging or destroying external fuel tanks no longer causes engine fires
  • All boosters from silver Loot Crates will now be of silver quality
  • Increased the penalty for team damage

User Interface

We have added several new overhauled screens and windows to the Garage to finish the transition to the new garage. We have also improved the existing elements based on player feedback. Additional UI changes include:

  • Fixed the right-side vehicle statistics display in the Garage (moved the buttons for better convenience)
  • Vehicle progression bar is now displayed in all the windows that show player vehicle info
  • Switched the Reputation icon to a new one
  • The aim reticle now turns red when a shell is being reloaded
  • Fixed some issues in the Garage tutorial
  • Returned the option to return to battle when the player left the battle after his vehicle was destroyed. The “To Battle” button changes to “Return to Battle” for such vehicles
  • The “To Battle” can now be also used to get out of a queue
  • The Upgrade window now displays the full name of the tank
  • Fixed some module icons in the Upgrade window
  • Removed the multi-line entry field during the Custom Match room naming
  • Fixed a number of consumable and armor entries
  • Added the ERA effectiveness to the armor description window
  • Fixed several smaller UI issues (incorrectly displayed icons and such)
  • Fixed the bug that prevented the player list settings from saving
  • Shell quality indicator returned
  • Overhauled a number of buttons to the Garage
  • Fixed the bug that caused portions of text to be replaced by smileys
  • If a player switches vehicles as a part of a team, an unconfirmed changes warning will appear
  • Added the “Garage”, “Preview” and “Proving Grounds” options to vehicle context menu
  • Fixed the issue where the progress boost icon was available even if the player did not have enough Global Reputation
  • Fixed the issue that caused the Gold Purchase window to load too long
  • Fixed a number of shell icons
  • Fixed the incorrect text in the Platoon window when joining a Platoon
  • Fixed the incorrect arrow icons in the Dealer menu after purchasing a Tier 2 vehicle
  • Fixed the bug that prevented players from buying or selling a vehicle if they had unused Tier 9 or Tier 10 tokens
  • Reworked the window that appears after obtaining a Tier 9 or a Tier 10 Token
  • Fixed the bug that allowed players to change modules, insignias, consumables or retrofits while in queue
  • Fixed the bug that prevented the camera from rotating in the garage after previewing vehicles in Dealer trees
  • Fixed the penetration indicator bug where HE shells could bounce off armor that was shown as green
  • Reworked the ATGM aim reticle

  • Damage numbers in battle changed – the more damage you do, the larger they will be and they are also sorted by damage type with different colors representing different types of damage
  • Added tooltips to various interface elements in the Garage
  • The Upgrade window now has two new tabs – with vehicle characteristics and with vehicle description
  • Added the drag and drop system to the tank configuration window

  • KTO Rosomak M1M Tier 8 AFV
  • WPB Anders Tier 9 LT
  • Wilk XC8 Tier 10 TD
  • Type 99 Tier 8 MBT

Camouflage Overhaul

We’ve made changes to the camouflage factors of many Armored Warfare vehicles to improve the spotting mechanics and to enhance the role of various classes. These changes include:

  • Significant increase of camouflage of all Tank Destroyers
  • Slight increase of camouflage of all Armored Fighting Vehicles
  • Decrease of camouflage of all Light Tanks
  • Decrease of camouflage of some Main Battle Tanks

We also fixed the camouflage of “edition” vehicles such as the Fox SHARK to make it correspond to their regular counterparts.

Camouflage Factor Reductions

  • Type 62: 30% to 15%
  • Expeditionary tank: 35% to 26,3%
  • T92: 35% to 28,5%
  • M551 Sheridan: 30% to 25,5%

  • Stingray 1, Stingray 2: 30% to 27%
  • M8 Buford, M8 Thunderbolt II: 30% to 27,3%
  • Chieftain 900, Chieftain Mk.2, Chieftain Mk.10: 10% to 7,6%
  • Challenger 1, Challenger 2: 10% to 8%.

Camouflage Factor Improvements

  • ERC-90 F4: 25% to 34%
  • AMX-10 RCR: 25% to 32%
  • OT-65A: 27,5% to 34,5%

  • LAV-150: 27,5% to 33%
  • M2A3 Bradley: 25% to 30%.

Please note that the Camouflage Factor value represents the share by which the enemy spotting distance is reduced. In the game values, 30% translates into 0.3 camouflage factor.

Accuracy Changes

We have changed the accuracy of many Main Battle Tanks to increase gameplay diversity. The accuracy changes are as follows. Generally speaking, the Leopard family now has the most accurate main gun of all MBTs on their respective Tiers.

  • Challenger 1: 0,11 to 0,128
  • Challenger 2: 0,1 to 0,11
  • Leopard 2AV: 0,13 to 0,12
  • Leopard 2A4: 0,114 to 0,11
  • Leopard 2A4 Evolution: 0,11 to 0,105
  • Leopard 2A5: 0,11 to 0,105
  • Leopard 2A6: 0,1 to 0,09.
  • M60A1: 0,132 to 0,152
  • M1 Abrams: 0,13 to 0,124
  • M1A1: 0,114 to 0,122
  • M1A2: 0,11 to 0,117
  • M1A2 SEP V2: 0,1 to 0,115
  • Т-72A: 0,155 to 0,13
  • Т-80B: 0,13 to 0,126
  • Т-90: 0,125 to 0,12
  • Т-90A: 0,12 to 0,11
  • Т-90MS: 0,11 to 0,105
  • Т-14 Armata: 0,1 to 0,09
  • Type 98: 0,11 to 0,118

To compensate, the aim time of several Tier 10 large-caliber guns was increased (details are mentioned in the respective vehicle sections).

Leopard 2 Series

In Update 0.21, the Leopard 2 series of vehicles becomes extremely accurate. The Leopard line now has the most accurate MBT guns in the class.

To compensate, we increased the aiming times of the following guns:

  • Leopard 2A6’s L/55 gun – aim time increased from 1,8 to 2,2 seconds
  • Leopard 2AX’s 130mm gun – aim time increased from 1,8 to 2,4 seconds

We made some changes to the Leopard 2AX to make it more competitive:

  • Shell damage increased to 725-750 to correspond to its 130mm caliber
  • 130mm accuracy improved to 0,08
  • Improved the mantlet thickness
  • Fixed the engine area armor (shells do not strangely ricochet when firing at it anymore)
  • Gunner sights armor significantly improved (it’s no longer a weakspot)
  • Side plates armor significantly improved
  • Improved armor kit – lower frontal plate thickness improved
  • Improved armor kit – upper frontal plate thickness slightly reduced
  • We significantly improved the protection against HEAT rounds and slightly against kinetic rounds

Overall, the frontal protection of the vehicle was significantly improved.

Additional Leopard 2 series changes:

  • Fixed the bug where the same shells for Leopard 1A5, Leopard 2AV, Leopard 2A4 and Leopard 2A4 Evolution had different values
  • Fixed the incorrect gunner’s sights weakspot on Leopard 2 and Leopard 2A6
  • Leopard 2 armor materiel changed to composite, improving the resistance to HEAT rounds but decreasing the resistance to kinetic rounds
  • Improved a small area above the Leopard 2A4 Evolution mantlet
  • Reduced the Leopard 2A4 Evolution turret front and sides armor
  • Leopard 2A5 APS changed to KOEP MUSS (including the model and its mechanics)
  • Fixed the incorrect Garage armor values for the Leopard 2A6
  • Improved the Leopard 2A5 and 2A6 mantlet thickness
  • Fixed the Leopard 2 armor for all Leopard 2s so that it’s no longer possible to easily penetrate by firing at the frontal roadwheel

C1 Ariete

  • Fixed several armor issues
  • Improved the mantlet armor
  • Improved the gunner’s sights armor
  • Armor materiel changed to composite, improving the resistance to HEAT rounds but decreasing the resistance to kinetic rounds

PL-01

This vehicle was significantly overhauled. PL-01 now can into stronk combat! The biggest change is that the Improved Armor was replaced with the ADAPTIV Active Camouflage System that gives the vehicle 30% bonus to camouflage if the tank stands still for 3s.

The base camouflage factor value was reduced to 24% (0.24) but the ADAPTIV system allows PL-01 to have the same bonus as if it was hidden behind a bush even when there are no bushes around. Please note that bush camouflage bonus stacks with ADAPTIV to the maximum allowed ingame value of 45%.

Additionally, enemy Thermal Imager modules that reduce bush camouflage bonus do not work on ADAPTIV.

Additional changes:

  • Armor resistance against HEAT shells was increased
  • Armor resistance against kinetic shells was reduced
  • Top APFSDS shell penetration increased to 780mm
  • PL-01 now has an autoloader with 6 rounds, the time between shots is 2,7s with the whole clip reloading 16s
  • Accuracy improved to 0,085

Stingray 1 and Stingray 2

  • Both Stingrays now get a Ready Rack like the LAV-600, 4 rounds, 3 seconds between shots, 22s rack reload
  • Reduced the incorrect additional armor kit lower frontal plate resistance to APFSDS shells on Stingray 2
  • Commander hatches no longer take reduced damage

BMP-3, BMP-3M, BMD-4

The HE shells of these vehicles are now very powerful due to overhauled ammunition mechanics.

  • 100mm rate of fire for BMP-3 and BMD-4 increased to 9 rounds per minute
  • 100mm rate of fire for BMP-3M increased to 10 rounds per minute
  • Switching between 100mm and 30mm guns now takes 0,25s

These changes allow these vehicles to surpass other vehicles in damage per minute value, but this is compensated by the weak 30mm cannon and poor camouflage value.

SPHINX

  • Penetration of the improved sub-caliber rounds for the autocannon increased to 200mm
  • Switching between the autocannon and the missiles now takes 0,25s
  • Launch time between missiles decreased from 2s to 1,5s
  • The vehicle can now fire a missile while another is still in the air, allowing this poorly-armored AFV to defeat enemies with APS better

Challenger 2 ATDU

  • Increased the 140mm gun shell damage to 800 points
  • Slightly increased the rate of fire
  • Aim time increased to 2,3 seconds
  • Increased the shell price to correspond to their increased damage
  • Fixed the bugged upper frontal plate armor (removed the unintentional weakspots)
  • Slightly increased the armor of the Challenger 2 ATDU turret “cheeks”, this armor area can now withstand hits from Tier 10 APFSDS shells

Challenger 1 and Challenger 1 WOLF

We somewhat reduced the turret armor. The front is still impervious to shells but the left turret side now has a weakness where the extra armor doesn’t cover it. We also fixed the bugged equipment (tool boxes and such) around the turret that gave 150mm of protection, reduced to realistic 10mm. This makes the whole sides equally vulnerable to hits.

Additional changes include:

  • Bugged fuel tank armor reduced from 315mm to 15mm
  • Stock frontal armor reduced, Improved frontal armor made thicker to improve the vehicle’s sense of progression
  • Frontal part of the additional side plates reduced from 150mm to 30mm
  • Fixed the exceedingly thick small panels on the upper front plate
  • Significantly improved the mantlet armor
  • Improved the turret roof armor (commander’s hatch area)
  • Slightly increased the lower frontal plate applique armor
  • Fixed the bugged upper frontal plate armor (removed the unintentional weakspots)
  • Fixed the bug that caused the commander’s hatch to take full damage

We also rebalanced the tanks slightly. They will keep their extremely thick armor but will have weakspots as well.

M1, M1A1, M1A1 AIM, M1A2 and M1A2 SEPV3

We changed the side armor of the entire Abrams series as such:

  • The hull sides are now vulnerable to autocannon fire
  • Lower frontal plate armor was improved
  • The incorrect UI armor values in the menu were fixed

Specific Abrams vehicle changes include:

  • M1 – frontal turret protection from both APFSDS and HEAT shells reduced (for APFSDS significantly)
  • M1 – side screens thickness slightly reduced
  • M1A1 – frontal turret protection from both APFSDS and HEAT shells increased
  • M1A1, M1A2 – fixed the bugged lower frontal plate armor that allowed for easy penetrations
  • M1A1 AIM – armor significantly increased
  • M1A1 AIM and M1A2 SEP V3 ERA effect description in the Garage improved
  • M1A2 – fixed the TUSK V2 improved armor materiel and the incorrect Garage armor values
  • M1A2 – introduced a large number of small armor fixes
  • M1A2 SEP V3 – fixed the bug that caused it to receive too low damage when ramming
  • M1A2 SEP V3 – armor significantly overhauled (including thicker upper frontal plate), resistance to the most modern ATGMs and APFSDS rounds reduced

XM1A3

The XM1A3 can now choose between two guns: automatically loaded 120mm (2 shots) or one-shot 140mm.

  • 140mm: 800 Damage, 720mm Penetration, 11s reload time, 2,5s aim time (increased from 2,3s), 0,115 accuracy
  • 120mm: 590 Damage, 800mm Penetration (new shell), 0,1 accuracy, 1,6s aim time, 2 shot autoloader FASTDRAW with 2s between both shots and 14s reload time

Additional changes:

  • Turret traverse increased to 36 deg/s
  • Armor significantly overhauled (including thicker upper frontal plate), resistance to the most modern ATGMs and APFSDS rounds reduced
  • Small mantlet area thickness improved

Chieftain 900

  • Aim time reduced from 2,6s to 2,3s
  • Mantlet thickness improved
  • Added armor to side screens (15mm thick steel plates), now they provide protection from HEAT and slightly also from APFSDS shells)
  • Fixed the incorrect Garage armor values
  • Bottom armor improved to 25mm
  • Fixed the bug that allowed players to damage the tank’s loading mechanism without dealing damage to the tank itself
  • Fixed the bug that made the penetration indicator turn white when targeting its tracks

BMP-3M-125 Dragun

  • Improved APFSDS round damage increased to 640
  • Rate of fire increased to 8 rounds per minute
  • Aim time reduced from 1,9s to 1,33s
  • Accuracy improved from 0,11 to 0,09

Russian MBTs

We significantly improved the T-90A, T-90MS and T-14 Armata rate of fire:

  • T-90A and T-90MS reload time reduced from 10s to 8,5s, top APFSDS shell damage reduced from 680 to 660
  • T-14 reload time reduced from 9,2s to 8s, top APFSDS shell damage from 720 to 700

Further T-14 Armata changes include fixing the bug where the armor of the upper part of the hull was too thin and the side armor was too thick. Now, the Armata behaves the way players expect it to: the side armor is now vulnerable to large caliber autocannon when firing at it directly while the hull roof is now significantly more resistant to HE shell impacts. We also made the following changes to the tank:

  • Fixed the bug where the turret ring took reduced damage
  • Fixed the bugged turret ring armor
  • Frontal turret armor improved
  • Upper and lower frontal plate center behind the ERA kit somewhat reduced
  • Commander and driver hatches armor somewhat reduced

Additional Russian MBT changes include:

  • T-72B3 reload time reduced from 9,9s to 8,5s
  • T-72B3 aim time reduced to 2s
  • T-72B3 lower frontal plate armor improved

List of 0.21 Changes - Update 3

Tutorial

Social Networks

Now you can share your ingame feats with your friends using social networks! The features added include:

  • Sharing screenshots on social networks
  • Account can now be connected to your Facebook, Vkontakte, MojMir and Odnoklassniki networks (only one game account per one social network account is allowed, accounts can also be disconnected from your social network accounts)

Post-Match Debriefing Window Overhaul

We changed the match results window to the new graphics standard. The window now contains a button to share your result on social media and a button to view the match’s replay. It’s now also possible to view match results for other matches without having to leave the Post-Match Debriefing Window.

Spotting and Camouflage Fixes

These changes were described in our recent developer diary and include the following two changes:

We’ll increase the maximum environmental bonus a bit. In Update 0.20, multiple environmental camouflage bonuses (for multiple bushes that are between the spotter and the target) can stack up to the bonus value of 0.45 (45 percent). In Update 0.21, this limit will increase to 50 percent to tweak the environmental camouflage a bit.

Secondly, we’ll change the way the bushes (and the environmental camouflage they provide) interact when firing a gun in their vicinity. As of Update 0.20, all bushes within 15 meters of a player who fires a weapon lose 66 percent of their environmental camouflage bonus for 5 seconds. In Update 0.21, only the bush with the highest camouflage bonus will lose its environmental camouflage this way (it will lose 70 percent instead of 66 percent). This will improve the role of using heavy foliage to your advantage.
