Under Siege Patch Notes | CB22


Under Siege

Closed Beta 22 Patch | April 18th

Beta Expectations


General

  • Improved the effect on screen that plays when you receive damage from an enemy. This effect will also scale based on damage received.
  • Sounds that play when you receive damage have been customized based on their source (Lightning, Fire, Bullet, etc.). This is done to help improve identification and prevent too many sounds from competing with each other for your attention.
  • Removed old keybindings from settings menu.
    • Added ‘Deck Swap Menu’ on keybind U
    • Added ‘Burn Card Menu’ on keybind I.
  • Fixed an issue with Champion portraits missing from cards when acquiring from Radiant chest.
  • Addressed an issue where FX would persist after respawning.
  • Addressed an issue where animations were replaying on respawn.
  • Addressed an issue where players were appearing stuck inside their horses during killcam.

Gameplay

  • NEW MODE – Siege
    • Siege has been reworked. It is now round based, and each team works to earn 4 total Objective Points to win the match. An Objective Point is earned when a Capture Point is captured, or when a Payload is successfully pushed to the enemy base. Once a Capture Point is captured, a Payload cart spawns for the attacking team and must be escorted to the enemy base for an additional Objective Point. The Payload phase lasts 3 minutes, and during this phase the attacking team will spawn at the Capture Point.
    • Before each round starts, players can change what deck they are currently using to better react to the circumstances of the round.
    • Before each round starts, players may now choose from a list of Burn Cards that will remain active for the round. Burn Cards cost Credits, which are earned throughout the match for various actions like killing players or capturing points.

  • Pets and deployables no longer put their owner in combat.
