Patchnotes 29/12/16

Post#1 » Thu Dec 29, 2016 11:54 am

[Open RvR]

Azarael

Battlefield Objectives

The contested and lock timers for Battlefield Objectives are now based on population distribution history for both realms:

  • Objectives that were taken by zerging will have high contested timers and short lock timers. This effect is mitigated if the attacking zerg was necessitated by a defending zerg.
  • Objectives that were overdefended, or that lacked defense, will have short contested timers and high lock timers.
  • The sweet spot for both attack and defense of an objective is using 20% of your realm's forces.

The existing effect of AAO on lock timers remains.

Victory Points

The green and yellow bars at the top right of the UI no longer represent reward scale. Instead, they represent control of the area. The yellow bar represents your realm, and the green bar represents the enemy.

The bars shift as you gain Victory Points, which come from having overall control of the current zone's Battlefield Objectives. Controlling 3 objectives shifts at normal rate and controlling 4 shifts twice as fast.

The maximum shift is determined by your control of Battlefield Objectives and Keeps:

  • Base maximum: 50%
  • 3 objectives held: +15%
  • 4 objectives held: +30% instead of +15%
  • Enemy keep held:: +35%

A zone locks when one realm reaches 100 Victory Points, and Victory Points also scale the value of supplies.

Keeps

A fallen keep will be controlled by the enemy for a minimum of 45 minutes, and will remain controlled as long as the enemy controls more than half of the Victory Points in a zone.

A keep can support 25% of the attacking force's total numbers as defenders at rank 0, and can support an additional 15% per rank attained. If this limit is exceeded, Diminishing Rations applies.

Interesting certainly.

However how am I supposed to know when "diminishing returns" begins at keep?
Will I just notice it from lessened exp/rr gain, or is there some way to know that now 25% of your allies are there with you?

Also do WC cannons still reach some BOs in certain zones or is that just a distant memory from live? For example Destro WC being almost above MM BO.

I'd like to have some clarification.
Do you get victory points over time and holding objectives just increases the rate? If yes, then I think this goes in the right direction and is pretty much how it should be. :)

If you only lock zone, when you take the keep, then several hours stalemates with equal forces continue to happen, when either side is unable to take the keep.

Pointless to discuss. There's an issue related to changes with the new patcher, forcing me to roll back code.
PMs will not be read.

I loved the domination system back in the days. It's gonna break up the zerg and give us more small scale fights on the BOs (hopefully).

It's no change. Is a rollback. It means it will come back exactly as it was. :D

Does this mean the squig powerleveling spot is dead?
