The next part of Capture the Flag has been finished, and has been rolled out to our games! Some items in the loadout browser now have multiple levels!
When mousing over an upgradable item, the current level (and max level) are shown up top, as well as the current stats vs the next level's stats. Right clicking the item will purchase the next upgrade. Once an item is upgraded, you have the upgrade forever! It does not cost more Loadout Points, and will stay the new level across all loadouts. (Even if the one you upgraded it on was deleted!)
We feel like this change will add much more replay value, as players will strive to upgrade the items they use most often!
More upgradable items are coming in the future, but quite a few armor sets, weapons, and special items currently share this feature.
A more organized loadout builder!
To make equipping and de-quipping items faster, I've redesigned the item selector. Equipped items show up on the top 2 rows, and others show up on the bottom. The enchanted effect wasn't clear enough, so this should make it easier to see!
Other notable changes:
- The Strength potion was removed from the game
- Speed I is now an option (instead of only speed II) for 8 Loadout Points
- Added support for future "Announcer Packs"
Capture The Flag is about to get MUCH cooler.
Today, I've pushed an update to bring the immersion of our new CTF game to the next level: An announcer!
All great games have a voice that guides you, so you don't have the constantly pay attention to chat, and now we have that awesome voice! (It just so happens to belong to AshPurdyy too).
The first time you join a CTF server since this update, you'll be asked if you'd like to allow us to send you resource packs. If you want to hear custom sounds, just say Yes. Once you say yes once, the pack will automatically download every time you join a future game. Now, you'll hear AshPurdyy narrating your respawn timer, flag status, and turret/minion spawner destructions! It's actually super awesome!
If you choose No, we won't bug you again, but you won't hear the announcer for this game (or any other that may use it in the future). If you change your mind, just visit us on your server list and set "Server Resource Pack" to "Enabled".
Let us know what you think! If this update is taken well, we have many future plans for this...
Other notable changes:
- Cake eating is now completely disabled
- You can no longer wander into the void as a spectator
- Flags dropped in water will now instantly respawn at base
- Spectators can no longer use game pads
- All sword prices have been increased by 1 Loadout Point.
Today I'm very happy to introduce a new change to CTF... introducing Sudden Death mode!
Sudden Death mode is our solution to frustrating games that end in no winner because of equal captures. This will happen no more!
At the end of the game that would end in a tie, Sudden Death mode is activated. During this mode, the following changes are activated:
- There are no more respawning
- There is no joining either team, regardless of size
- The capture goal is changed to be the next capture for either team.
Keep in mind, this has no effect on games that wouldn't end in a tie! If you're beating the other team 4 - 2, and the timer expires, your team wins! No Sudden Death!
This update will be rolling out this weekend, so look for it on a CTF server near you!
Other notable changes...
- The cost to respawn will never exceed 1,000 Credits
- Games are now capped at 20 Minutes, instead of a half hour
- Attempting to bypass a team barrier will now kick you from the server
- Turrets & Minion Spawners now carry 25 HP, instead of 10. They also cost less Loadout Points to equip.
- Putting ! before your chat will now shout for all to hear (Premium Members Only)
- The Strength & Regen potions now cost 18 Loadout Points to equip (instead of 15)
- Full Diamond Armor now requires 28 Loadout Points (instead of 24)
