And these changes are?

Multiplayer

Please Note: Multiplayer servers will be opened for the beta branch to enable you to test the changes below. They will open tomorrow (Friday) around 11 am UTC and will remain open over the weekend.

Design & Balance
Combat

  • Bows, Crossbows and all Throwing Weapons' readying/aiming duration and patterns are now related to weapon speed (aiming used to be standard for all ranged weapons).
    • The faster the weapon is, the faster it readies up, the smaller the initial crosshair, the faster it gets accurate and the longer it holds max accuracy.
    • Minor adjustments will be made after reviewing performance.
  • New Perk for bows and crossbows:
    • Faster Release - Grants faster-travelling projectiles to increase the effective range of Bows and Crossbows. Does not increase the damage value.

UI
Changes
  • Swapped places of Play and Armory tabs to centre the Play tab.
  • Reporting a player automatically mutes them for you after a report.
Fixes
  • Minor visuals fixes in the lobby custom game tab.

Both
UI

Changes
  • Mission Order Radial:
    • The order UI has been changed and now has radial buttons. This is implemented mostly for gamepad usability since previously, that UI implementation was unusable with gamepads. Because of this, some orders had to be moved. F1 and F2 orders are unaffected but F3-F7 orders are now under a list, F3 (like F1 and F2). We're open to feedback about this change. So let us know what you think!
  • UI now supports other language characters that are not included in the selected game language:
    • Previously characters in other languages would show up as block characters. e.g if your game language was English and someone typed in Japanese in the MP chat, the English player would see those characters as block characters. Now they show up as the correct characters.
Performance
  • Optimisation made for agent spawning, improving the initialisation of battles and reinforcement phases.
  • Optimisations made on inverse kinematics by reducing unnecessary usage in the animation system, slightly improving the overall performance.
Combat
  • Fixed a scenario for crush through where the attacker could deal full damage to the opponent.
  • Troop movement speeds when moving in arrangement had been reduced noticeably in the previous update, according to feedback and testing, this reduction has been made less severe for line arrangement.
Modding
  • Fixes for crashes when using road_instance script for river sculpting.
  • Check for errors functionality in editor also checks the physics objects of the mesh bended entities.
  • A new functionality added to the editor for re-baking the selected GI probes.

The changes look good, I hope beta servers will be populated.
im planning on checking it out, well see if this is going to help or **** the game. Im worried by the fact that alot of the throwing weapons got a 10 damage nerf though happy to see that they were increased in number. Also Lance damage going up was needed so good job. Also bastard sword for legionary and long sword perk for tribal warrior are nice compliments as well.

@Callum can there maybe be a duel server with rotating factions? Testing everything in skirm is a pain in the ass and testing it on Duel would be way easier to detect stuff that is broken/should be fixed.

There has been a slight delay opening the servers as we are testing a hotfix right now. If all goes well the servers will be opened alongside that hotfix this evening.

Recruit
I played TDM today with about 8 people total. 4 vs 4, and as an Aserai Archer, I felt like a sniper with the new faster release perk. It seems like instead of nerfing crossbows, they buffed all other ranged. Idk, it’s too early to say definitively but it might need to be tuned separately for Siege and TDM custom servers from ranked Skrimish and Captain that you can actually queue for with today’s player base

Archers are much better, however kahns guard are very slow and whats up with shield wall? Why is the movement speed so slow and why does it effect your cav? And what happened to the command to face enemy now its only face direction. The archers are a great improvement I still feel like kahns guard need some more work the don't shred like rangers or archers, and they are still slow. Cav feels good too, the ai seem to attack better and are overall smarter.
