We released an update earlier today to the matchmaker that will now narrow the skill range of players searching for games. The matchmaker will also attempt to group players of similar ranges for a longer duration of time before widening the parameters of the search.
Players may experience longer waiting times while searching for games. Players at the very high end of the matchmaking spectrum may notice a much longer wait time than others.
During the Developer Live Stream we provided the first game mode(s) play through on our upcoming map, currently named “Spires.” There was also live gameplay use of the Deployable Shield, the LMG Barrel, the Double Barrel Rocket Launcher and the newly reworked Personal Shield. Spires features a stark contrast in vertical gameplay accented by planked bridges and plenty of areas to utilize advanced jumping maneuvers. The new map, Deployable Shield, Double Barrel (Rocket Chassis) and lots more will be available in the upcoming build.
