RELEASE #10.1

 

RANKED MODE ADJUSTMENT (COMMUNITY)

Dear Prospectors,  we have heard a lot of feedback concerning the first implementation of Ranked Mode, and we are very glad that you shared so much of your insights and experience with us. This is why we want to present you with the second iteration of the Ranked Mode formula.

In short: instead of basing your Rank Points on the match rank and your performance ONLY, we now make a prediction on how well players are expected to perform in a given match and base your rank points on actual performance compared to expected performance. Additionally, tuning has been adjusted to emphasize the value of your scoreboard placement more than before.

We know that this description is a bit on the vague side, and we will provide you a more detailed analysis in the form of a Blogpost in the near future.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • If you press the [ENTER] Button during the match, you will freeze for up to 5 seconds! So please, do not press [ENTER] during the match.
  • MK2 weapons are still called MK2 and this will be fixed in a future release.
  • Voice chat is NOT working at the moment.
  • ZEUS and KARLA can have issues with visuals in 3rd person.

  • Items still lose their upgrades when dropped, we’re working to remedy this in the future!
  • When you die in a duo or squad match your team rank will not change until all of the players have either escaped or get foamed. We know that this can cause some confusion but the rank is shown at the end of the match will be the correct one.

  • Laser Drill still can have some texture issues.
  • Sometimes the boxes of your Ride can hover in the air.

Please remember:

Even though we are now in Early Access and Season Two has started, the game is still in development. This means that bugs and crashes are to be expected.

If you find any issues during your session, please don’t hesitate to report it using the bug reporter tool in-game.

Please also keep in mind that queue times, especially late in the night might be longer than expected due to lower player count around these times.

We hope you have fun during your time on Fortuna III and look forward to reading your feedback!
