Patch Notes 03/07/2021

Post#1 » Sat Jul 03, 2021 12:18 pm

Weekend Warfront: Thunder Valley Rampage

Image

A battle's broken out down at Thunder Valley. Seems the greenskins have found the secret workshop where Dwarf Engineers are developin' new engines of war. Thunder Valley's importance to the war effort can't be overstated. Quick now, go join the fight. We need every warrior we can get down there!

The Thunder Valley scenario is open again for characters of all levels! This weekend only join in the joy of slaughter as enemy forces clash in this legendary locale!

This weekend Thunder Valley Rampage will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Thunder Valley scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks. Completing all tasks will grant the title: "Thunderous Veteran".

Ranked Scenarios

Some tweaks have been done to the matchmaking to try and strike a better balance between fast pops for all MMR ranges and balanced matches. The match maker adapts automatically to different population levels and will create wider MMR brackets during low pop hours or when players have been in queue for a long time. And smaller brackets when there's more ongoing games and shorter queues.

Oh that's nice. I wondered why I was always AP dry when fighting maras in ranked... It will surely improve a bit Order QoL knowing this bug is now fixed. ;)

There is still hopefully the hard restriction of no 0 mmr with 1k+ mmr ppl right? No matter what the pop is?

Quite sad there still aren't any slayer nerfs.
Every (objective) data point clearly indicates they are hugely overperforming for a while now and with the focus on soloq 6v6 where they are a significant outlier you would expect something to come through.

Stop expecting class nerfs and buffs. We're not doing them outside of balance cycles. If the game is unplayable in your opinion due to specific class balance, come back in 3 months when we do the next round of changes. If you have specific balance proposals you want to see considered, post detailed and constructive ideas in the Balance Proposals subforum, and make sure you review the Rules for Proposals to have the best chance of getting them discussed.
