THE GAME IS RUNNING WELL. NOW IS THE TIME TO INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO PLAY AFTERMATH WITH YOU!

 

Hey everybody,

 

Here's the patch notes for 5-29-17 + 2 hotfixes!  This patch focuses on a lot of smaller fixes and 'Quality of Life' improvements that Aftermath needs.  Most notably an update to Hitboxes and change to the way Liberations function since they are our 'boss fight' so to speak for now.  They need to feel valuable, but also not just dish out the rarest items in the game 24/7 and also not be solo-able as it throws the balance of item intake rates out of proportion.

 

Eventually we will be adding a tier 5 weapons table to the game which will be weaponry that has glowing paints / valuable accents that make it instantly recognizable as an ultra rare weapon.  The same goes for high end armor.  

 

There are new point of Interest spawns that aim to add value to each area and serve as a place to loot at the bare minimum if passing through an area.  This should create a bit more centralized conflict as you can expect players to be more prone to hanging in this areas.

 

HOTFIX NOTES BELOW -  6-1-17

  • Updated Server List - There is now only 1 Pinetop server and it is for Veteran PVP
  • Limited US server rentals are now available
  • Tier 4 weapons are now slightly more common in Liberations
  • Reduced spawnrate of blueprints in liberations from 19.5% to 7.5%
  • 5.56 ammo was missing from Liberation drop table and added back to Liberation drop table
  • Fixed issue with blank GC screen

Here's what to expect in the next patch: http://forum.willyou...xt-hotfixpatch/

 

HOTFIX NOTES BELOW -  5-31-17

  • Updated vendor pricing for all items in the game.  You can tell how rare an item is by how much GD the vendor is willing to offer for it.
  • Fixed Rarity Color Display for all cosmetic crates!  Drop rates are unchanged, colors just properly display now!

US SERVERS ADDED!

  • You can now rent US & EU private servers!
  • There is now 1 US Legendary and 1 Regular US Arizona map
  • /server command fixed to display proper number of users

VETERAN PVP SERVERS ADDED

  • These servers requires a 'VETERAN PVP BADGE' which can be purchased from a vendor in any safezone.  This item is permanent, simply place it in your vault.  You must also have minimum 20+ hours played in Aftermath.  If you meet both of these requirements, you may connect to Veteran PVP servers.  We encourage all clans and PVP players to play on Veteran PVP servers for the best Anti-Cheat experience!
