Patch v1.05 – Booma, Out of Beta

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Patch 1.05! Today, we’re introducing our 16th Clone. With this arsenal of fine warriors at your fingertips, we finally feel that after 5 months in open beta we are prepared to transition to “Games of Glory” the fully released game.

A major thank you to all of our friends and community members who have joined us along this journey. Here is a list of the main updates that are featured in this patch:

New Clone

  • Booma (Skiuteran faction, Tank class) now playable
Booma is a strange but regal figure among the inhabitants of the Skiutera system. All Skiuteran hold her in high regard. When colonizers first arrived, she was leading the defence, but as the power of the invaders became apparent, she signed a peace treaty to stop the killing. Despite this, she was sent to the Games of Glory by the Skiuteran Governor installed by the Synarchy.
Coquetry
Booma increases her movement speed and gains a heal for the duration of the effect, partially reducing her armor
Toxic Beauty
Booma increases her armor and deals damage over time to all opponents near her, but she’ll lose health during the skills duration
Booma’s Trashing
Booma jumps, deals damage and stuns all opponents near the impact area

Changes

  • Totally re-factored camera to improve movement and visibility
  • Tweaked bots AI so that they behave better on all difficulty levels, and provide a good challenge for players
  • Updated matchmaking system so that players find ranked matches more quickly –
  • Booma is the new Clone to welcome players on the home screen

  • Small boost to Ragnar’s health
