Patch Notes 07/12/2019 - Ranked Scenarios

[Hotfix #1]
-Fixed an issue where a ranked scenario popping could cause an infinite loop hang in the matchmaker.
-Changed how quitting a ranked SC affects your MMR internally. (display coming soon, hopefully)
-Ranked Scenario queue pops do not expire after the timer anymore; instead, they will aggressively try and port you into the scenario as long as you are not engaged in combat and are actually loaded in the game world

[Ranked Scenarios]

- Ranked Scenarios are now in a testing phase, with no rewards currently but later planned.
- Ranked Scenarios will be available in one of two ways: Premade Ranked 6v6, and Solo Ranked 6v6. Both are available after career rank 40 is achieved.
- We'll be collecting data internally based on matches played, currently they will offer no extra rewards but we will implement bragging rights on the website soon enough. Depending on how testing goes, we may adjust, modify, or remove this system. If the system is received in a positive manner, the system will be used for weekly rewards based on matches played and your current rating in the near future.

[Solo Ranked 6v6]

- Solo Ranked 6v6 Scenarios are scenarios you queue up for by yourself, and will not show up in a group.
- Currently, the only map available is Caledor Woods.
- The flag is now a right-click capture point, which takes 30 seconds to capture. Point generation is enabled while this flag is captured.
* Player kills will grant 50 points.
* The scenario itself has no guards, which means it will end in a total domination after 10 kills have occurred, or after the scenario timer has elapsed.
- This system has an aggressive matchmaker which will pick the first 2-2-2 composition available in the queue as soon as it's available. It will not start a scenario if the 2-2-2 composition is not available.
* While in a Solo Ranked 6v6 Scenario, you will be unable to respec your mastery points despite the career trainer being there, and will be matchmade according to your mastery points.

[Premade Ranked 6v6]

- Premade Scenarios are scenarios you queue up for with a premade group of 6.
- Currently, the only map available is Caledor Woods. This is the same Caledor Woods premade groups have been fighting in, and contains the standard ruleset from before - with one change;
- The flag is now a right-click capture point, which takes 30 seconds to capture. Point generation is enabled while this flag is captured.
- This system has no matchmaker and you can bring any composition you see fit into the 6v6 match.

[Scenarios]

- Respeccing mastery or renown while queued for scenarios will now remove you from scenario queues. If a scenario pop is pending, you will receive quitter in addition. This does not kick you from active scenarios.
* This is to address an issue where the matchmaker did not know if a healer is DPS or Heals in some very specific circumstances.

[Abilities]

- Swordmaster: Fixed an issue with the Crashing Wave where it was doing more damage from strength than intended, per tooltip.

[NPCs]

- Additional guards have been sprinkled around some warcamps and scenario spawn points. Most people probably don't need the reminder that finding a way into a warcamp or spawn point will likely result in GM sanctions. Please use the bugtracker if you notice somewhere that needs an extra guard added.

[Fortress]

- Fixed an issue where players could terrain exploit out of stonewatch prison.
- Added a block to switching realm in a fortress battle. Switching realm and attempting to join the same fortress will block any gains.

[Quests]

- Prophecy: This T4 Chaos Epic Quest is now available until the end
- Twisted Warboss Gift: You will now have to take the head of Ember Firestorm
- Coddle Souleater: Class restriction has been set on all the quest rewards
- Glories Past and Present: Icons of the quest items have been corrected, and the quest rewards have been set
- Undeserved Blessings: The quest rewards have been set

[Interface]
- The Surrender Window should attempt to hide itself when not in a scenario, else a /reloadui should do it. The vote timer has been decreased to 2 minutes (from 5).

[Gold Chests]

- Fixed a issue which could cause a gold chest scoreboard to be malformed.

[Tickets]

[15241] The Scaly Skin is no longer stackable
[15228] Reminded Murgo that the event has ended, and he may come back next year
[15231] Typo has been corrected
[15233] Typo has been corrected
[15234] The NPC will no longer have a weird animation

In the ranking is it going to be more feed the 24 -7 players winning by default or is it the thought to have win/lose ratio concept.
Maybe early to ask this but ...

This seems interesting enough to perhaps get me to try out a SC or two. Thanks for the work, as always.

Healer specs are based on their mastery point investment.

If you have even points in the DPS/heal trees, you are counted as a healer.
