Patch Notes 26/04/16

Postby Netheos » 26 April 2016, 11:09

Greetings Admirals!

We’re pushing out the first post-launch bugfix patch today, dealing with a number of bugs that have been reported since launch. Another will be coming very soon. You can read the patch notes below.

More stuff is coming later this week! On Friday, we’ll release a development roadmap of what we have planned for the game over the coming months. We’re dedicated to providing long-term support for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, and we’re looking forward to showing off the cool things planned for the future!

  • Fixed a bug affecting the icon and effect of the Wraithguard Eldar upgrade.
  • Fixed a bug affecting the visual of the destroyed prow on an Eldar Voidstalker.
  • Fixed a bug affecting the tooltip and feedback of the Eldar Pulsars.
  • Fixed a bug affecting the Eldar Maelstrom, causing it to spawn inclined or not on the same plane.
  • Fixed a bug causing the guest to be able to see the deployment zones in the starting cutscenes.

  • Fixed a bug causing two dialogues to trigger if the player pressed escape during a dialogue and closed the menu.
  • Fixed a bug causing the Holofield to spawn particles when allied shots passed through it.
  • Fixed a bug that didn’t cancel a skill a player was going to launch if the ship using the skill was destroyed.
  • Fixed a bug causing the Nemesis destruction dialogue to trigger even if the player lost a mission without destroying the nemesis in it.

1 Light Cruiser for extra 100 points vs 10 mines, 2 platforms with 3 dps each and station with 3 escorts.
Still unbalanced.

ALL cool stuff, thanks guys

question is it intended that a player suffer a lost in the warp on the data retrieval and assassination mission if the data holder or admirals ship warps out to win the mission? is this fair if intended

Nothing for Eldar Pulars?
They do still require a rework.
