January 19

Patch 1.2.19 deployed Jan 19th with updates, improvements and fixes.

Updated Jan 20th 18:00 EST: Hotfix has been deployed. Requisition points addressed and if you're just seeing this, Campaigns are up and running. Have a great weekend and our most sincere apologies for the troubles you may have encountered. Now start the carnage.

Updated Jan 20th 10:00 EST: Hotfix for various issues is in testing with intended deployment today. We are considering adding more fixes to that hotfix which could affect deployment time or simply an additional hotfix next week.

Updated Jan 19th 17:00 EST: We have identified the client crash when using "Swap Loadout" and the fix has now been deployed. You may have to force Steam to check for an update if you have already patched.

We apologize for the short notice on this patch deployment, it contains many updates, general improvements to a number of systems, bugfixes. performance work and last but not least, a good amount of combat balancing.

Much of this was covered in last weeks Twitch and we were hoping for a patch deployment being possible today, as we're already working on the upcoming patch. Next patch is also focused on performance and more balancing - which will predominantly be around the Loadout Point Revamp.

I'm finalizing patch notes. Houman, our Patch Notes Master is still out sick, as you may have noticed in the quality of the last two patch notes. We're simply not as great at it and it takes him days to get it up to the quality he delivers. I will add them to this post when finalized.

Let's give Houman a shoutout to get better and we all all hope you enjoy the latest changes and balancing.


Patch Notes - Game Design Section

NOTE #1: Campaigns have been patched out but it's a system that we control behind the scenes and the go button has not been pressed yet! Expect them to be started tomorrow once we've confirmed the stability of the latest update.

NOTE #2: This is not the "big" pen/toughness/LP revamp, as that is a big job planned for the following patch. You should start seeing changes related to it showing up on UAT as soon as next week.

Changes (from Game Designers)

- RTS weapons are now fully moddable except for the following: Abaddon’s - - Grace, Sternguard Bolter, Gatekeeper’s Bastion. These will be made moddable in the following patch, but are slightly more complicated than the rest.

- Sprinting turn rate has been significantly increased for SM tactical, ground assault and apothecary, CSM traitor, traitor assault and sorcerer, and Ork shoota, slugga and painboy.
- Jump Pack wargear have had their costs and stats changed across the board. Stormboyz, Raptors and Assault characters can potentially be even more maneuverable than before, but maneuverability wargear costs significantly more than it did before.

Bug Fixes (from Game Designers)

- “Standard of Precision” node name has been changed to “Standard of Certainty” to match the item it rewards.
- Storm and Fury Tempest Launcher now fires one big projectile as its text describes.
- Flesh Circle now triggers the correct vfx when hitting Khorne characters.
- Secondary fire on the Reaper Launcher now correctly triggers a cooldown.
