Drop Pods v2
Captains are in for an upgrade with the introduction of Drop Pods v2, offering a smoother experience for Pilots. The new features allow for a more fluid management of the pods, including options to redeploy, unpack, and unlock, with varying functionalities and cost implications tied to each action.
Play and Earn View
The Play and Earn menu has been upgraded to display an array of statistics regarding the user’s activity. It not only showcases the current market price of SILK and the recent VP/SILK ratio but also allows tracking of lifetime stats for individual accounts on a revamped dashboard. Furthermore, a host of other elements now offer insights into the accumulated rewards.
Report System Update
In a bid to tackle communication abuse during games, the mute button on the in-game scoreboard has now transformed into a “mute and report” button. This initiative seeks to promote healthy gaming interactions, with punitive measures including a global mute as opposed to game bans. Additionally, players have a daily report limit, fostering responsible reporting.
Killfeed UI Overhaul
Pilots can now stand out in battles with an enhanced killfeed UI. Several new notifications and rewards systems have been implemented, such as the Domination, Revenge, First Blood, and Multikills, each offering various ways for players to gain extra points and recognitions during a match.
Freecam Feature Launch
The long-awaited Freecam feature has finally been introduced, allowing spectators in exhibition matches to have a more immersive experience. This feature facilitates a dynamic view of the arena, encouraging players to explore, engage, and record epic battles from various angles.
Hidden Ranks Initiative
Based on testing insights, Spider Tanks has altered the visibility of player ranks before a match to enhance enjoyment and foster strategic gameplay. The change aims to shift the focus from rank visibility to team composition and strategy development, without affecting the existing matchmaking process.
In conclusion, the Patch 1.4 brings a slew of welcome enhancements and additions to the Spider Tanks Arena, demonstrating a commitment to continually elevate the gaming experience. Through various improvements in gameplay dynamics and user interfaces, it promises to foster a more engaging and rewarding gaming environment for its users. As the arena gears up to implement these changes, it is anticipated that players will welcome the initiatives aimed at streamlining operations and fostering positive gaming interactions. The new patch certainly sets the stage for exciting times ahead in the gaming arena.
