Updated flashbang mechanics

We’ve updated the flashbang mechanics. First, we’ve added extra tracer beams, and that means if the first tracer beam establishes no contact with the player’s camera, the player may still get legitimately flashed and stunned if the three additional beams ‘ricochet’ off the nearby surfaces at them (see. screenshot #1). Apart from that, we’ve solved the issue with the primary beam getting stuck / stopped by minor obstacles, such as grass, wire fences and alike.

Secondly, we’re reducing the flashbang explosion radius, making it more chambered as a whole. This means the player is more likely to be stunned in close quarters. And lastly, we’ve adjusted the system to account for the player’s cam rotation and angles at the time of the explosion which, in simple terms, allows the player to tactically rotate and face away from the explosion to mitigate the stun / flash (see screenshot #2).

This mechanic overhaul required a range of adjustments to be made to helmets that provide flashbang protection.

Due to the flaws of the previous system, some of high-level helmets used to give near impeccable flash protection, while the starter helmets provided little to none. In order to reduce this gap and get some visible results, the stats have been adjusted.

H&K G28 adjustments. Based on player feedback, we’ve adjusted the following specifications of the H&K G28 sniper rifle:

Specific mechanic changes

Switching sides in PvP matches. Rounds are now set to be more dynamic and change at the first half of the game. For example, if you need 6 rounds to win the match, the sides (attacker/defender) will be switched after 3 rounds. If the total rounds required to win is an odd number, it’s rounded towards the nearest lowest. Say, you need to win 11 rounds, that means the number’ll be rounded down to 10, and the sides will be switched after 5 rounds are played.

Notification mailbox. We’re reworking the obsolete elements of the interface, and as a part of this optimization initiative we’ve developed a new mailbox that will store all non-critical in-game messages in a separate, comfortable-to-view area. This new feature enables us to unclutter the main screen and make notifications more manageable overall. After a notification is read, it is instantly deleted.

Visual revival effects. This visual effects overhaul allows the player to understand the process of being brought back to life by a Medic or Resurrection Coins more clearly: the played character will now get blinded for a moment during a shock, and the revival will be accompanied by an awakening gasp.

HArms CQR

Introducing HArms CQR — a highly ergonomic assault rifle designed by a German manufacturer Hera Arms as an exterior module to the all-time favorite AR-15.

In Warface, HArms CQR is an assault rifle with average rate of fire and effective range, offset by impeccable damage and extremely soft recoil, allowing for long subsequent bursts with no considerable kickback. To further emphasize this quality, the rifle’s outfitted with a high-capacity Magpul drum bag.

Other changes

  • Optimized client-server communication methods and protocols responsible for game security.
  • Changed connection quality indicator system.
Details

The old indicator system was fairly flawed, as it failed to depict the real picture about one’s connection. It often gave the wrong impression about how your ping affects the gameplay.

To start with, damage registration in cases moving targets primarily depends on the target moving mechanics and only then, secondarily, on connection quality. If your target is moving directly across flat terrain without altitude changes, even the drastic ping values won’t affect the gameplay. We’ve done thorough tests within the development team on this subject, which have been further confirmed by some of our community members (for example, “Monter’s” videos). However, the case changes if the player interacts with some objects, like climbing over an obstacle or jumping over a gap between two crate. In these situations, you can observe irregularities between the picture and the actual target location even at low ping.

We’ve previously attempted to optimize the moving mechanics further, though to no full avail. As of right now, we’re working on the third version of the so-called updated system that we hope to deliver in future. It isn’t related to the ping indicator in any way and should improve the cases described above.

Changing the current indicator system allows us to give players correct information on how their ping affects the actual gameplay. This change is mostly aimed at reducing the negative emotions associated with misleading information provided by the old indicator system, and most importantly, is just a mere step to improving player-to-player and player-to-server interactions.

In the new system, five bars indicate that the delay is no higher than 65ms, a broadly accepted standard for modern titles. The new bars will essentially do a better job at showing how the gameplay is affected by player connection.

  • Players are now able to skip cinematic comics in Special Operations (those that have them); several navigation buttons have been optimized.
  • Increased Resurrection Coin Crown costs.
  • Added a Resurrection Coin Random Crown Box.
  • “Scarlet Dragon”, “Jade Dragon” and “Black Dragon” series now have their own guns and achievements. Stay tuned in March for more about this!
  • Items with 0% durability can no longer be deleted from your Inventory.
  • Added the “Services” button in the main menu.
  • “Battle Royale” map has been changed to “Mojave”.
