Alpha 0.6b Patch Notes
Hello Community!

On October 16 we will be releasing the Alpha 0.6b patch. This is primarily a bugfix and optimization patch, but will also contain some balance changes and new content. We'll be adding three new profiles on top of the existing three, which are essentially variations of them with some new stuff thrown in as well. These should help give you a first glimpse in to customization and variety, which we're looking forward to sharing more about in the coming months.


New Content
  • Three additional Profiles
  • New Weapon: Hunting Bow
    Weak but Swift
  • New Weapon: Dane Axe
  • New Helmet: Cloth Hood
  • New Perk: Juggernaut
    Enemy attacks won't knock you down whilst sprinting.
  • New Perk: Sure Shot
    Hitting enemies with arrows will charge consecutive draws faster. Stamina cost for charged arrows is lowered. You recieve no headshot bonus.

Balance Changes
  • Removed dodge stamina cost decrease from the Light Archetype
  • Increased attack time of Sword Special Attack to 0.75 from 0.7
  • Increased attack time of 1h Axe Special Attack to 0.9 from 0.85
  • Increased attack time of 2h Axe Special Attack to 0.81 from 0.76

Fixes
  • Fixed an exploit in Docks where you could climb a tree
  • Fixed several locations in Docks where characters could get stuck
  • Fixed a render crash via texture optimization
  • Fixed a bug where the winning team was granted higher score than intended
  • Fixed a bug where inverted look was not working in first person
  • Made several texture and level optimizations
  • Fixed an issue with melee collision
  • Fixed a crash which could occur by sending a blank chat message
  • Changed default shield paints for both teams
If you experience any technical issues or discover bugs, please report them at http://helpdesk.fatshark.se/

Thanks for playing!

Glad the special attack times have been increased! I also can't wait to run around wearing that very fashionable hood!

Good choice with the special attack times, I always did think they were slightly too quick :). Looking forward to it! The thought of playing as the huscarl with the juggernaut perk charging towards an archer, an arrow hits you right in the chest yet you continue running like a madman only to watch the poor archer panic briefly before getting his head chopped off :).

As much as I think the Huscarl is OP. I love this new perk. Being shot to the ground by an archer is irritating. Once you're down, he fires another arrow which puts you back on your butt again. 1 more to finish you off if you're not already dead. This has happened to me more often that I'd like, lol.

No Spears added? The roadmap shows Spears in mid-October, or did anyway... Disappointed to see they won't be in this update :( .

"Removed dodge stamina cost decrease from the Light Archetype" does this mean the "Quick Blood" perk is basically useless?
Red Dragon Oct 14, 2013 @ 10:54am

On screenshots of the new classes there is a new 2h axe. But it is not listed in this notes. Will it be present in upcoming patch?
