Leaderboards preview + hotfix update!




Hi everyone!

First of all, a warm welcome to all new players! We hope you guys enjoyed the weekend deal on Ballistic Overkill. =)

Today we’d like to share more detailed info on the update we’ve been working on (no ETA yet) that will bring a brand new feature: leaderboards! This update will add skill rating to all players. Skill rating is adjusted according to your score and performance within every valid* match. You can already preview your skill rating on Steam’s performance ladder screen, but note that we’re still working on it and we’ll let you know exactly how SR gain and loss works when the feature is release (we’re currently only testing it). There are 16 ranks you can climb through, each requiring a higher amount of skill rating to be reached. At the end of every month players will be rewarded according to their rank! The top 100 players on leaderboards will also receive monthly rewards. And there are also weekly rewards for the top 30 players on each class based leaderboard! Rewards go from regular scraps to golden lockboxes containing golden weapon skins! There is also a new item, the golden scrap, used to craft golden lockboxes. As long as you’re an active player, you will be rewarded! And rewards increase as you climb ranks and stay closer to the top 10 best players. We’re excited to see how this new feature will play and hope you enjoyed this preview! You can check more leaderboard UI preview here.

*You will only gain or lose SR on valid matches, which are official dedicated servers matches that you’ve played for more than 4 spawned minutes with more than 8 players in it.

Additionally we’re pushing a small hotfix update to improve matchmaking algorithms to better fit the current active player base. Community dedicated servers will now be searched through “play now” button and you can toggle it off on settings menu.

On Linux we're experimenting a 64 bits version! You can try it when launching the game and let us know if it works great. There are also some balance changes you can check out below:

1.4.0 - Hotfix

Hello everyone! Today we’re releasing a small hotfix patch to fix some reported bugs (specially the error joining match one) and apply a few balance changes. Ninja was a skill that left no room for counterplay so we’ve completely changed it. We’ve also buffed some of Wraith’s unpopular weapons to make them more competitive and increased Tank's and Vanguard's movement speed a little. You can read full patch details below!


Balance Changes

Shadow
  • Skills
    • Swiftness movement speed reduced from 15% to 12%.
    • Ninja reworked
      • Shadow loses the ability to become invisible. In return, this soldier gains +15% damage resistance, +25% melee damage and his footsteps volume is reduced by 100%.

Wraith
  • Weapons
    • Hydra clip size increased from 16 to 20
    • Demon and Firebrand damage increased (2 points)

Tank
  • General
    • Tank and all LMGs movement speed increased

Vanguard
  • General
    • Vanguard and Slayer movement speed increased

Fixes
  • We’ve made changes to fix the “error joining match” issue. After leaving a match, wait a few seconds before joining another match to avoid this issue.
  • Awareness (Marksman trait and skill) now properly detects Shadow and has a skill icon feedback.
  • Fixed an issue with Wonderdome health packs not respawning.
  • Fixed some elements missing on Hollow’s (map) sky.
  • Fixed loadouts breaking after leveling up and equipping new skills between matches.
  • Fixed duplicated player connected/disconnected messages on killfeed.
  • Refined matchmaking algorithms.

Thanks for playing and have fun!
