Hello Soldiers,

This is from the BS Dev Team:

Competitive Matches will finally be possible in the upcoming patch!

Thank you for patiently waiting for such a long time.

Competitive Matches do not require a clan to join; every soldier can join the match.

Now you must be at your best to compete and win in Competitive Matches, the core purpose of Black Squad is to prove your skills and show you are one of the best players!



What is a Competitive Match?

  • The Competitive Match is a game mode designed for those who want to seriously test their skills. It is different from quick or custom match, and it is recommended to participate after enough practice.

  • Competitive Matches start from the pre-season to the regular season. For the first pre-season, everyone will start with the same rank, and the rank system consists of 5 total ranks from the lowest to the highest rank. You must join Competitive Matches to rank up.

  • Friendly and enemy teaming and match processing is handled fairly using the ELO Rating; all soldiers participating in Competitive Matches will work within this system and its mechanism. Plus, MMR points acquired per user may be different, since the contribution to victory or defeat may be different for each round. It is also applied to Match Making Rate (MMR) Point which is collected every round and finally acquired or lost at the end of the match.

  • Competitive Matches will not allow mid-match joining, and the penalty for leaving the match is very high. (Sudden disconnections is OK). When one player leaves the game, it creates a huge disadvantage for that team.

  • Competitive Matches are available from the Sergeant rank (Channel entry requirement)

  • The Competitive Match is a 5v5 demolition mission and victory is the first winner of the 8th round.

  • Competitive Matches are only available to join by yourself. (This will be expanded later on to allow for multiple users to join)

Skill Rating (MMR Point)

  • Season 1 starts when the Competitive Match is open after pre-season.

  • Everyone starts with a basic score for the first time in Season 1, you will be able to see your score and rank from that point. Your win or loss is decided after the first match is over.

  • Skill ratings increase or decrease, depending on if you win or lose, respectively.

  • The rate of increase and decrease can vary each game depending on the number of rounds played and your own individual performance and contribution.

  • The rate is between 0 and 4000. The higher the rate, the better the skill.

  • Rank changes according to skill rating.

  • In a Competitive Match, you will be on a team with similar skill ratings; and the opponent team will be matched with similar skill rated soldiers as well.

Season System

  • Competitive Matches are operated as a season system.

  • The season will last for several months and a specific schedule will be announced later.

  • Finish the season with good skill ratings by improving your skills as much as possible during the season.

  • Statistics are reset at the end of the season.

  • At the end of the season, the Competitive Match will end and will not be available during the non-season.

  • Once the next season is open, you will be able to join to the new season.

Reward

- At the end of each season in the Competitive Match, you will get an exclusive reward through Competitive Matches.



More detailed information will be posted in the upcoming Competitive Match patch notes.

Please get ready for the upcoming Competitive Matches.

Thank you always.

Hello Soldiers,

This is from the BS Dev team:

Our Developer team would like to officially announce and explain the recent controversial issues in our community involving the AK ZHUKOV, SS2V5, Balisong and KATANA.
First of all, we would like to sincerely apologize that those items invoked unnecessary controversial issues at the time of its release.
We deeply ask for your kind understanding about this incident.

We want you to know that the AK ZHUKOV, SS2V5, Balisong items are RE-Skins.
RE-Skin simply means that its function is the same as the original one, and only the Look & Feel(Skin) is designed differently.

For this reason, AK ZHUKOV and SS2V5 belongs to the RE-Skin item group.
Therefore, AK ZHUKOV is the RE-Skin of AK12 and the SS2V5 is the RE-skin of the M4 CUSTOM, and the Balisong is a RE-Skin of other short range melee weapons.


As it is mentioned before, AK ZHUKOV has the 100% same function and features of the AK12 and the SS2V5 has 100% the same functions and features with the M4 CUSTOM.






Lastly, the KATANA will also be part of the RE-Skin item group, and our Dev team is currently developing the
same function, but different Look & Feel version of ‘KATANA’ for the ‘MEDAL SHOP' in the future.


Please look forward to it with patience.

As in the past, we are and will be trying our best not to release any P2W items in the future.

Thank you for your kind understanding.
