SERVER-SIDE ROLLOUTS COMMENCING.

You might get a match where it is fixed, and then one where it isn't, as the servers will roll out one-by-one. Give it a bit and they'll all be up to snuff. List of things this will cover:
  • Users seeing names duplicated on the scoreboard.
  • Users stuck at the end of a match and not seeing the EoR Screen.
  • BattleMechs being stuck in game longer then they should be.
  • Fixed an issue where people with high latency would experience a black screen after loaded into the game.
Thanks all, and good luck on the field!

Will this fix the black screen many of us are getting? Not exactly clear on what this patch is going to do.

Well it says "dedicated server". Is that the internal test server? or is that a crash caused by something the server is doing with the client.

dedicated server is of course "the server". so probably a crash related to joining matches/exitting matches, and not related to 'random crash to desktop' type crashes

Garth, I appreciate you reaching out to us and giving us updates.

However, I would suggest that, when you give details, use a minimum
of 4 sentences to describe the issue and what you are doing.

Regards.

what would you rather have- one bug fixed NOW, then move on to the next bug, or fix ALL the bugs all at once which means you have to wait ten times as long?

Let them fix this bug since they're already in the middle of fixing it, then they can fix the next bug.

Exactly what it is. My first 5 matches after patch I CTD immediately after getting off loading screen. I had to wait 15 mins because all of my mechs were in-game. The ones I managed to get into after that had the polygon HUD bug (updating drivers does not fix this or CTDs.) A tip for people with this bug, alt tabbing provides a temporary fix. Hope I helped.

Good stuff! I hope the hotfix gets implemented soon. The game is virtually unplayable for Oceania players such as myself - what with all the black screen/ long loading times and late releases. Rapid implementation of fixes such as this will do a great deal to shore up confidence for players both incoming and existing which is going to be critical as the game exits beta.
