Grouping Issues

- Fixed a bug where one group remained stuck on character selection if the other group leader quitted with the group while in lobby

- Fixed the situation where sometime two groups couldn’t join each other

Artifact Assault Balancing

- The size of the capture zone has been increased to 6 meters (from 5 meters).

This change does not alter the way capture zones work. It doesn’t change the number of elements in it

or the number of access to it. However this slightly reduces the time for the attackers to get to the capture zone.

It widens the zone a little bit for them.

Abilities Balancing


- Fixed a bug that prevented players affected by Knife from teleporting.

 - Fixed a bug that sometimes made a player become invisible when he tried to teleport while holding the artifact.

- The Casting Time of Teleport can know be crafted to 3.5/3.15/2.8 seconds (from 3.5/3.25/3.00).

Teleport was too hard to counter on AC3 once crafted to its maximum,

but we agreed that the crafting of the Teleport was this time too small to really make a difference.

With the updates done on other abilities, we decided to slightly increase its crafting.

Time Phase

- Players affected by Time Phase are not able to climb or jump anymore.

We originally wanted to give some natural counters to the Time Phase,

but this gave too much advantage to pursuers in team modes. With this change,

we want to make the ability more reliable.


- A 1 second delay has been added before re-opening a door/lift with unstoppable equipped.

Countering a just-closed chasebreaker is a great feeling. Unfortunately, the ability unbalanced the

game too much in Artifact Assault and ruined some level design opportunities: running on a straight line

became the basic strategy for carriers. We want to reward strategic and cunning escape techniques,

and we think that a player should always have the advantage for using a Chasebreaker.

The Unstoppable ability was breaking this promise. But we didn’t want to remove the perk, as we like the

opportunity it gives to the game: a closed chasebreaker will now take 1 second before being reopened.

What this means:

- A running pursuer will miss the reopening. He will climb the door or the wall behind the lift, or miss the just used corner helper.

- How to take advantage of the perk: by slightly slowing down your run or simply by doing some zigzags in the

last meters before the chasebreaker (to give it some time to reopen).

- Well used, Unstoppable still lets the pursuer to go on with the chase.

But Chasebreakers will now always give an advantage to the targets, and the use of the perk now has to be planned.
