UPDATE 2.9 - Customs, Matchmaking & Boosts



The latest version of Block N Load brings changes to the matchmaking system which should help improve the quality of matches plus additional options for Custom Games. Of course, there are also a number of other improvements and fixes to go along with it as well.

Some of the key changes in this version include:

Custom Games
Custom Games have received some new functions to make them more interesting and easier to find players to join matches on player made maps from the Steam Workshop.

It is now possible to allow players to join a Custom Game even after it has been started, once a Custom Game has finished the host of the custom game can choose to take the game from the scoreboard back to the match setup screen, and new options to adjust the size of the Brick Wallet Cap along with the number of Bricks that each Hero starts the match with have been added.

Matchmaking
A number of changes have been made to the matchmaking systems to make them more flexible. We’ve used existing data about the people currently playing Block N Load to set the starting points for these, and hopefully you should see some better matches formed as a result.


XP Boosters
It is now possible to purchase boosters that increase the amount of XP you gain from completing matches in the in-game Shop. Each booster will run for the amount of time specified and during the time it is active will let you earn XP for your Heroes and Player Level faster.

4th of July Arena
Additionally, as this update is coming out on the 4th of July the arena "E Pluribus Unum" is making a return to Casual Mode rotation and Custom Games.

It's time to party like it's 1776!

96% of my time was spent in the beta.

Then they nerfed Juan's movement abilities to the point of being useless. No more slinging across the map in the span of 10 seconds if you don't accidentley splat yourself.

The netcode never got better either. Have fun with people popping around in short bursts.

Also lol that F2P model.

An average game...
-Select an offensive hero
-Defensive heros say theyre gonna attack and tell you to defend
-Can't do anything in warm up because you don't have defensive blocks.
-Teammates cover up cube.
Game starts
-Hear "Your Cube is Under Attack"
-Realize your teammates didn't put down radars.
-Cube blows up
-Read ez pz in chat.

That's why I love this game

Essentially team fortress 2 meets minecraft. The first part of a match is spent building ur base/defenses minecraft style 1 block at a time. Then they drop the walls and ur in a team fortress 2 style objective based shooter tring to destroy the enemies base. You can dig trenches, place exsplosives and shoot the enemies in the face to get to their cores. The game is free 2 play and can be loads of fun specially with friends.

I REALLY like this game. It's a simple thought, but it's has a really nice mechanic. It's a Free2Play so it's flawed of course. Some 'Heroes' are a little over powered. But it does give it character, and I think if a nerf/buff comes it shouldn't be a large one.

Strong Heroes(IMO):
-Kira-Chan
-O.P Juan Shinobi
-Kreepy the Klown
-Vander Graff
-Dream Genie
-Sweet Science
-Nigel Purdy Longshott

Weaker Heroes(IMO)
-Roly Poly Fat Fat
-Yuri the Yeti
-Astarella

More or less "balanced"(IMO)
-'Sarge' Stone
-'Doc' Eliza Doolally
-Cogwheel
-Tony Torretto


This is based on WHEN this was posted. This could change. If I'm still active on a change that changes the placement of the heroes on this list, I will change it.
