Patch Notes 10/06/2024

Post#1 » Mon Jun 10, 2024 7:40 am

Highlights

10th Anniversary Celebration
Image

Has it really been 10 years of Reckoning already? It's rare for a fan project to outlast its game's live counterpart by such a significant margin, but here we are and we're proud of it. It is the combined effort of both the developers and you, the dedicated and loving fans of Warhammer Online and the Warhammer Fantasy universe. We are incredibly grateful to all of you for being a core part of all this and supporting us over the years, keeping WAR alive and choosing it as your home. But do not think this is all, as the best is yet to come!

So with that said, let's celebrate this anniversary with a bang! We have prepared several fun rewards and events for you all to commemorate this special occasion. Sounds good? Then spread the news, rally your friends and get in the WAAAGH!


Rewards

- [Anniversary Goodie Bag] as one-time login reward.
- [Anniversary Companions]
- [Anniversary Fun Box]
- [Anniversary Capes] - Preview here.
- 10th June to 17th June - x2 [Renown] Boost and x2 [War Crests] from player kills.
- 14th June to 17th June - On the Weekend, x3 [War Crests] from player kills.

Weekend Warfront: Guns, Shrooms, and Steam

Image

The trains of Kadrin Valley are carrying gromril back to Karaz-a-Karak night and day. Work on the Doomstrikers is well underway, but now the greenskins have decided to sabotage the efforts. Get out to Gromril Crossing, and help your realm drive back the enemy!

This weekend Guns, Shrooms, and Steam 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 Gromril Crossing scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.



Content
Image
Dungeons

- Wrackspite's adds in Bastion Stair now properly move towards the boss at a slower speed.


Scenarios

- You can no longer queue for scenarios while tagged as AFK. Keep in mind that if tagged AFK in a scenario you will be kicked from the SC.

Typing /afk is a toggle option that you have to type in again to remove. This caused players to unintentionally get instantly kicked from Scenarios on join, due to forgetting to disable their Away From Keyboard Status.



Website
Image
Killboard

A few modifications have been applied to the Website's Killboard functionality:

- Lifetime Death Count has been hidden from Character Profiles.

- Death Count has been removed from Weekly/Monthly Player Leaderboard.

- Death Count has been removed from Weekly/Monthly Guild Leaderboard.

All other stats, including deaths, will remain visible and available for potential analysis in the individual Scenarios and Skirmishes pages.

Fighting is what RoR is all about, and we'd like everyone to focus on enjoying the game and working together as a Realm. With this change, we're making room for more emphasis on core game mechanics, objectives, career roles, and player interactions, creating - in our view - a healthier and more fitting MMO experience.

It will take time to see difference, but if we can influence player behavior even a tiny bit for the better, we’re all for it.

Remove the killboard player part, keep guild kill monthly-weekly and skirmish/scenario. Or atleast make personal stat private.

Nice bugfixing and very good to hide death count in killboard !

Now everyone can enjoy the game and get fun fighting desperate battles, instead of kiting forever to keep their precious KDR...

However, about bug #21069 on SW/SH warlord 4 Pcs : Evade Strikethrough from gear is still not converted to Parry strikethrough while in Assault stance, despite being a "Ranged Prowess" as tooltip say.

Is that intended ? Because it makes no sense to get a melee-oriented gear set only to get the ranged bonus.

The killboard website's individual kill stats are only informative for DPS classes. Healers and tanks have no incentive to focus on kills. Therefore, it makes little sense to track kills for individual players. I agree that guild stats should be more prominently displayed, as this can foster realm pride and provide more reasons to join a reputable guild.

2nd step should be disabling addon SOR, to encourage players or other groups to actually play a game, instead of chasing action in one zone. With SOR nature its not possible to change zone for a WB to not being noticed. We need fog of war, please, consider it, or at least ask majority of players.

Impressie work on the bugfixing as of late! Had 2 or 3 on the list this week and you guys hammer them down just as fast as they go up!

Killboard, a naive part of me wants to believe this will remove some of the "I rather live than get those two risky kills" mindset and players will hopefully take more chances and enjoy pvping instead of enjoy living.

But it does make me wonder, if removing deaths will not make it harder for GMs to easily spot the few times a year were one or two players try to killtrade and killboard would easily set off an alarm for this unintented progression and rulebreaking. Hopefully the RoR team still have tools to detect and uphold the rules for killtrading where Killboard seemed like a very easy way to spot the lawbreakers.

/s Why would one try to fix the root of the issue when you can just hide the data and outcomes, yeah.
