Game Update November 1, 2023

Around 9:00 AM UTC+1, game servers will restart for a game update to be deployed.

General Conquest-Related Changes
  • Pilots are now required to fully equip their spaceships, meaning blank item slots will now be indicated as a tech violation during Enlisting.
Random Teams in "Open Team Battle" Conquest
  • You can no longer choose a side when enlisting for OTB Conquest; instead, The Referee will put together two randomly sorted teams from all pilots who enlisted.
    • If at the end of the Enlisting phase there is an uneven number of pilots, one pilot is sorted out as overhang.
      • Pilots without valid tech are put to the bottom of the list during Enlisting, so they are most likely to be sorted out as overhang.
  • Enlisting for OTB is now only possible if there is no tech violation indicated for your ship, i.e. the levels of your ship and items must meet the demanded range, and your ship must be fully equipped (no blank item slots).
    • Ships and items can still be changed once enlisted.
  • Added a small warning icon to OTB Conquest Enlisting layout that informs pilots there will be a penalty issued against them if they enlist and then do not actively participate in the CQ battle.
    • Penalized pilots will not be able to enlist in OTB Conquest for 7 days.
  • In OTB Conquest, pilots now have 2 minutes 30 seconds to land on the planet after Enlisting concludes (1 minute 30 seconds in regular Clan Conquest).
Fixes
  • Fixed that using some items that would not prompt an offensive PvP action would mistakenly trigger the temporary Speed Booster deactivation in Pirate Mode (which we introduced in our last update).
