Hello MechWarriors!

This is a reminder that - 1) Today is a patch day, and 2) That means servers will be coming down at 10am PDT!

I'll update this with the patchnotes once they're all completed. Oh, and if you post 'were patchnotes' or other hilarious posts about the patchnotes, I will remove them.

That said, hope you guys enjoy it, and we'll see you on the battlefield!

Cheers,
The MechWarrior Online Team

Bug Fixes

  • Changed spawn location in Terra Therma for players spawning too close to the shipping containers. This was causing Mechs to have human scale movement collision capsules, making it very difficult to navigate the world.
  • Removed collision around the hole in center of Terra Therma's platform in Assault mode.
  • Fixed many "stuck bugs" in Terra Therma.
  • Fixed some collision issues in River City (Night) where certain sized Mechs were getting stuck between buildings.

General

  • Navigation marker posts in Terra Therma will now actually cast light (med+ spec) for slightly better path-finding. Pro-tip: If the marker post is on the right edge of the path, you are headed toward the center volcano.
  • Terra Therma - Damage and heat sustained whilst in the Volcano has been increased and is subject to further tweaking.
  • Cockpit lights indicating the open/closed state of weapon bay doors are currently non-functional. Normal functionality will return in a future release.



We thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!

No he just didn't finish the sentence:

Were patchnotes supposed to be posted by now?

The answer to that at all times of course is: No they were not.

From what I understood it was gonna increase the twist speed and the turning radius of medium mechs. Does anyone know if it also increases acceleration and deceleration? I guess we just wait for the patchnotes.

That patch notes are not yet written for a build that is supposed to go live in a few hours explains a lot. Kudos for the honesty though

In advance of the patch, I would like to complain that something in the patch is broken, and that at least three separate posters, none of whom will have read the forums, will make the identical complaint.
