Patch 0.9.8 notes

NEW MAP: DIVISION


We have added new deathmatch and gun game only map; Division.
At one point we weren’t even sure will this map make into 0.9.8 but it finally did.

While working on this map it was called Bureau TDM. The resemblance is notable, can you spot why?









MILESTONES






Milestones are a new in-game feature that provides long-term goals and helps to keep track of your weapon specific statistics.

The player completes a mission and they are rewarded. Each milestone shows current progression and goal. The goal changes when milestone ranks up. There are total 15 tiers of the tasks.

Achieving milestones grants Credits or Tier Cases.

FLASH SALES


Looking for a specific skin that is just right for you? Here it is, flash sales.

Every eight hour a new piece on the offer wall. Flash sales grant a possibility to buy directly a specific weapon skin. These items are available for purchase only for a limited time. Price of the items is determined by the tier of the skins.

MATCHMAKING & STABILITY UPDATES


Okay, this is a bit complex to explain but I try. We sort of cleaned up the code so there are fewer issues when looking for a match, and ping for a party is smarter now meaning that even in a party it will adhere to limitations better.

TL;DR better matchmaking

EVEN MORE AUDIO UPDATES


  • Audio improvements reverted: they will be iterated upon in order to maintain the ability to distinguish the guns from each other
  • audio level adjustments
  • FIXED audio cutout issues

CINEMATIC SPECTATOR CAMERA


This is super handy for people who are making videos about Critical Ops. Ever wanted to have a scene in your video where camera swipes smoothly across the map? Well, now it is possible.

CLEANING USERNAME BASE


As we posted on Twitter earlier, we have started cleaning our userbase. We’ve renamed users with a non-operative name that have not logged into the game within the last 2 years and giving them a free force name change. This affects ONLY users that have not logged into the game since 2015.
