The Dumahim and Turelim banners are awesome!!! Too bad there's no other way of obtaining them :(
Also, I noticed Hunter pack contains a picture of a new ability. What is that? Patch notes don't mention any new abilities.

Ah, thanks Varulven. :) I hope they can be bought individually. Or better still, at a bulk discount.

I hope you can buy the banners separately.

Tar bomb confirmed. Maybe.

Loving everyone's reaction to the packs, banner madness has spread far and wide it seems. :nut: (Myself included)

We're still in maintenance mode for now while we get the update out, I'll post an update here once we're back online.

Any ETA on when that is gonna be? I know you definetly want it to be working at 7 pm, so the open beta starts at least without conflicts. But having access to it before that would be awesome :D

Saikocat
21st Jan 2015, 16:54
I'll let you know as soon as I have an ETA for you guys, but it'll be before that.
But don't worry, I'll be here all evening either way! :)

I wanted to make a typo pun with the Captain steering us through the troubled waters, but it turned out to be going the wrong way :(

Glad youre with us :)

Like a few people in this thread mentioned, looks like Tar Bomb that has been talked about when people dug it up in the game files. That being said, there was a confirmation on twitter that the icon is there by mistake and supposed to be [Whip] instead... But what has been seen can never been unseen, Corey :p

Also, Saikocat, I know it's super early but please put me out of my misery... Are you guys considering or have any plans about selling class banners (for all 12 classes eventually, when all get designed) separately in the game store? :)

Do you at least know if the servers are gonna start (or are planned to be started) with normal open beta launch in 40 minutes? Or is there a chance that I might take longer than this?

We've made some adjustments/improvements, but if you have any specific comments or questions, let us know!

Is it better or worse? I'm still downloading things.

The new banners look amazing! Makes me kind of sad how ugly (in terms of low resolution) the Alpha-Banner looks in comparison :poke:

Btw: What do you think about a preview for the buyable banners (like Skins)? Would be quite useful especially for the event banners.

Hm... Psyonix did u do something with the matchmaking? Yesterday I had awesome hard and close matches. MMR start working? :)

Saikocat
22nd Jan 2015, 09:08
We made some improvements in the last patch (before yesterday) that should make for better searches/matches

Well after 3 hours of testing, I think u did some awesome work there. Today I test it more. Well it's not a n00bstomp anymore.

BTW Why still Early - Access in Steam? No advertisment, no top of the free play games :(.

Feels good to see Nosgoth on the front page! Looks like it's reflecting positively on the player numbers charts too. Hope it keeps growing until you guys have to increase server capacity :)
