Changes & ImprovementsChanges to Mid-Air AccuracyWe’ve acknowledged that beta players felt the time to kill was too low and that corner strafing/jump peeking was too common. Previously in Battalion, weapons were 100% accurate in the air. We have now added another layer of depth to the game, to reduce the amount of ‘flying around corners’complaints. Whilst strafing around a corner is still a valid strategy, it should no longer be the most optimal way to approach a gun fight, allowing for more options. These changes affect the scoped rifles & the Kar98 most of all. For an amount of time when a player is in the air, they will no longer be able to hit perfectly accurate shots. This change is ONLY applied to horizontal movement (X & Z axis), if you stand still and complete a regular vertical jumpshot, you will retain 100% accuracy.This change has been applied to the following weapons at different levels of inaccuracy:Kar98 Sniper (Extreme)Springfield (Extreme)Kar98k (High)STG44 (Medium)BAR (Medium)Thompson (Minor)MP40 (Minor)
Player CountsTechnically, you can run a 50v50 game if you so wish! However, we have tested the game with 18 players max, so anything after that is uncharted territory. As part of our “Major Content Update” in summer 2018 (www.battaliongame.com) we plan to include ‘large map support’ so that players can begin to play games with larger server numbers.Please remember, the more players in a game, the more your frame rate will be affected.
Pre-Order GameserversWe’ve been working with Multiplay who host all of our matchmaking servers, but they will also be hosting servers for players who want to run their own game! Their servers will be limited for 60 tick for now this will change in the future. Visit https://www.multiplaygameservers.com/game-servers/battalion/ to pre-order your dedicated servers ready for Day 1 of Early Access.Tick RateAfter much deliberation, we have decided to run our matchmaking servers at 60 tick. There are multiple reasons for this and it is important that server providers read this. We fully intend to offer 128 tick servers in the near future, but currently with our time constraints there are bugs with 128 tick. Some animation related and some spectator related. Clanwars is in its early stages but we intend for it to use higher tick servers, so fixing these issues are a priority for us.If you do run your own server, we advise you do not use 128 tick and stick to 90 at most until we iron out these issues. But remember, the game has been tested most at 60 tick.
We are super excited to announce that Battalion 1944 will be coming to Early Access on February 1st 2018 at 17:00 GMT.It will cost just £11.99 / €14.99 / $14.99
