Hey everyone! Welcome to our Friday Update!
Sorry, this was put out a little later than normal due to waiting for a couple of things!
* First off, we’re excited to give you a sneak peak on our new customization in game. Like we said previously, you can change the background pattern and colors of your outfit for both team play and FFA, as well as customize emblems. You can see nice close up views of your character and spin them around to see how it looks from all angles. You can choose which helm you’d like your character to wear from this screen as well.
* Secondly, phase 4 of the beta build should have been online sometime tonight, however, Steam decided to be difficult at that exact moment, so most likely we’ll have to wait until Monday. Sorry! :( So to tide you over until it’s officially updated, here are a few fixes and alterations written up by SlyGoat, of what’s to come. Balance changes shall wait til’ Monday!
CU1 Patch 2 Beta 4 (Just a preview of what's to come!)
-Projectile stickies should work again.
-Assists now properly awarded to both teams.
-Alt slash tracers for fists draw properly.
-Projectile speed should no longer be influenced by framerate.
-Special daze length from 1.5 seconds to 2.
-Ranged weapons no longer flinch on hit (attack is canceled instead), and can now cancel attack at any time.
-One-handed bastard swords withut a shield now 'officially' supported; 1 will toggle between one-handed and two-handed, 3 will toggle shield if equipped.
-Vanguard sprint attack can now be rebound to a key other than mouse 1 to allow you to perform normal slash attacks with a sprint attack readied.

-Stamina drain from parrying an attack is now locked between 8 and 25, from 7-35.

Low stamina sounds updated:
