New respawn mechanic

 

  • A new respawn has been added to the arenas.

    • After being destroyed, the player will have to wait for a reconstruction time.

    • During this time, the camera will focus only in the bomb.

    • After this time, the player will be able to choose a spot of the arena to go back, marking the spot with a counter.

    • When the players go back to the arena, they get invulnerable for a certain time and enemies that are in the respawn spot are instantaneously destroyed.

Dev notes: We notice that, with the old respawn mechanic, players spent a lot of time out of the action. This happened due to the need to move from the respawn point to the bomb. Aiming to fix this problem, we developed a new reconstruction mechanic which allows players to go back right into the combat again.

 

Overtime

  • Each round has a maximum time.

    • At the end of this time, the match will enter Overtime.

  • During the Overtime:

    • The two delivery points (blue and red) are going inwards in same speed through the track getting closer to the middle of the arena.

Dev notes:  After a data analysis, we noticed that matches with excessive duration had a worse retention than quick ones. Keeping this in mind, we developed a new mechanic which makes it harder for matches to have an excessive duration, turning the final minutes more exciting.

 

Known bugs

  • When the commands are customized on “B” button, there are still some messages about the store.

  • In some occasions, the bomb goes visually inside the Little Monster pilot when she grabs the bomb.

  • In some occasions, the reconstruction interface got stuck in the screen after coming back from the automatic pilot.

  • Sometimes, when you are reconstructing, the audio fails for a moment.

  • When the player joins a match in the Spectator Mode, the TAB button with the stats won’t work.

  • In some occasions, when a player reconnects with the game, his/her car becomes invisible.
