Now In Testing
Over the weekend we were full swing on Server #4 for testing of the newest update to EUTW PVP Warfare. The biggest highlights of this future update are a major change to the class system, weapon distribution, and increased options for fast travel.
Classes are now broken down into 4 functions. 15 x Riflemen, 5 x Medics, 5 x Engineers, and 5 x Snipers. Medics and Engineers will now take on a more critically focused role on the battlefield for those who thrive on support roles. It should also be noted that specific weapons and items will now be restricted for purchase by class.
The biggest change we are researching at the moment is expanding the ability to teleport into what we are now calling "Fast Travel". The system we are trying out is a lot more robust than what has been in place over the past 2 years and includes teleport options from base, captured flags, and MHQ's.
To learn more what we're working on and the WIP update notes, head on over to the forums to read the full changelist and the discussions surrounding the update. Note that what is being done here is by no means final and we still have a lot of work to be done to roll this out in various stages.
We'll be doing sporadic tests during the week as we begin refining the update based on player feedback and internal reviews.
