Note from the Developers

After Photon’s machine balance, we analyzed the community feedback and our data again to decide which machines would receive a new balance round. In the first moment, we selected Vulture and Full Metal Judge, and then performed a few tweaks to Vulture to reduce his total power and the ability to hunt down enemies easily. For Judge, the changes were smaller, but very effective, and brought the machine to a competitive level. We’ve also added Artificer to the balance list because we also noted that we had the community feedback and the data to evidence the need for changes. We’ll continuously check our data and monitor the machine performance, and we might add a few more changes to Vulture and Artificer in the future.

 

Friends System
  • An “Add Friend” button has been added to the list of recent players, making it easier to add new friends.
  • Some interface texts were adjusted.
  • Fixed a bug with the PlayerTag displayed in the match ending screen for AFK players.
  • Fixed a bug with the behavior of the Friend List’s tooltip while browsing friends options.

 

Metal League
  • The texts under the Metal League section were updated with the details for the new season that’ll take place starting from January 11th.
