Greetings MechWarriors,

A Hot-Fix is scheduled to occur today, August 23rd at 1PM PDT (8PM UTC), to address the following fixes:

- Removing Stock only mode in Competitive Play and resetting the leaderboard.
- Fixed an issue where the new hitboxes changes on the Marauder II dorsal cannons were not affected by ballistic weapons.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

SERVER SELECTION MENU IS BUGGED FOR SOME TIME NOW! Sorry for the screaming there...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix this! I don't want to restart the client every time I want to change the server. This is extremely nerv wrecking if you want to syncdrop with your friends abroad.

There is a workaround for server selection. I do not exactly remember it, but try to create a group and select servers there. Or do it on solaris. Or in lobby. I really do not remember, but there are more server selection checkboxes than just the quickplay one. As soon as you find a working one, the quick play dropdown should work again too without logging out.

Should still be fixed, but cannot be done in 15 minutes.

I haven't had this issue since last patch, so I wonder if its a hardware/software conflict...so basically its fixed for me since last patch.

I was hoping for a fix on the heat bug. Maybe next patch, then?

What kind of sorcery is this? Do different weapons have their own hitboxes? I could understand the logic responsible for this back in the days of LRM headshotting but surely there's more elegant solutions.

Although it would also explain PPC's passing through targets, if they're the last hitbox on the checklist, by the time the server's checked all the hitboxes it's already impacted the ground behind...

Or maybe... it's a precursor for Reactive armour.... TIME SKIP CONFIRMED!

it's not unlike when you shoot a black knight in the face it hits CT, unless there is a weapon on the head in which case you are now shooting the arm, right? a few mechs behave like this but I don't really get into it.
the guys who know stuff could probably tell you more.

For the people who can't figure it out, they likely broke the server selection feature on purpose, because the player pop is so low, that if it was in effect, then matches would take even longer to get. Oceanic players in particular would basically never get a match without the game forcing NA and Euro players onto the server against their will.

As it is, it has never worked right anyways. I have tried countless times to permanently block the Oceanic server basically ever since I started playing the game 3 years ago. It NEVER stays blocked for long. A few days to weeks later and ta-da the game is dropping me on Oceanic again until I go reblock it.

wait times are too long to switch servers off, and i thought this years ago.

Did they break the friendlist refresh button again?

And maybe they could add a blinking addition to the group window:

Close all chat windows to stay ready permanently during search.

It´s a new feature that was discovered by accident and only spreads slowly through the player base.
