Hello Commanders,

Are you ready to test 21.4 in preparation of the WCS 2021? This update contains the latest changes before the end of the year, so we hope you are looking forward to this small update.

The patch will commence around 07:00 – 14:00 UTC on Wednesday, October 06th. We will take PTE offline for the update, then return it for access to testers when the process of this maintenance is finished.

Below are a list of changes and the worlds selected for the first round of the Update.

Changes:
  • Invalid User/Base names should now be detected much sooner
  • Offensive POI modifiers are now displayed in battle prep and combat
  • Number of Bases and Player Level are now displayed in the MY Games tab
  • CiCs now have options to allow substitutions to issue alliance invites
  • Substitution rules set by a world are now listed in the substitution options

Bugfixes:
  • A visual bug has been fixed that kept counting offensive repair time for destroyed bases that do not generate offensive repair time
  • Base shortlist should now deal better with user scripts
  • DST time display has received some improvements for correct display

See you on the battlefield, Commanders!

  • The maintenance has been concluded.

    Currently some new interface texts are missing their localization and show a tnf: flag, this will be addressed shortly.

    If you find any more bugs or issues, please let us know here in the forum.
    Happy testing :)

  • I'll sent some changes in (external) scripts to their authors or maintenancers. ;-)

    Questions:

    1) The thing about showing the number of bases in the other worlds ... will it only work when all the worlds are at 21.4?

    2) I'm not in rank 20 in all worlds ... will it only work when all the worlds are at 21.4, too?

  • What would be the correct display of the levels in this case?
    Are the bases on those worlds destroyed?

  • The number of bases varies in each world, they are not all the same.

    No, none of the bases are destroyed and the player is active.

  • Base shortlist should now deal better with user scripts
    may i have more info about that? maybe in DM if you prefer
  • Thanks for the feedback so far, the My Games tab will show data properly once all other worlds have the same code with 21.4 deployment proper.

  • It would be perfect if the "Rank" could be shown like this:

  • Thanks this is what we intend to change the display to.

    This morning I tried to send (three times) a message and after click on "Send"... nothing happens.

    Testing now...

    And I received the mail.

    Now trying to reply my own message...

    I click on "Send" and window close normally.

    Two times and... nothing happens. No new message in my inbox.

    Maybe an special not supported condition or... I don't know.

  • I will try adding a friend to the destination address:

    Click on "Send" and (again) nothing happens. :-(

    I don't know if you have a copy of the message but me, no. :-?

    I can't think of anything about what the problem might be with the message I'm trying to reply to. There is free space, the recipient is correct, it seems that he sent it but ... it does not arrive.

    I understood you - @EE_Elephterion may ask you to change in a Direct Message.

    I think i get most of it. So the options are not working you say. I believe you have the Veteran rank in the alliance, which would usually not allow you to do either, invite players to the alliance or set markers.
    What tooltip do you get displayed when you place the mouse over?

    If you're the player you're substituting for is in GeForce Wing, the reason you can't invite is because the alliance is full.

    I've substituted successfully with my Gamerdruid account in GeForce for an officer in GeForce Wing. The only marker it allows me to place is the layout reservation marker although in the substitution window it gave the option to allow markers and invites.

    EDIT: After further investigation it seems none of the new options are inherited on substitution. The developers are now aware of the issue. Thank you for your testing and reporting the problem. This is the purpose of having a PTE, not to win the centre and kill the Fortress as some players seem to think.

    I think it is normal that in a substitution you cannot do the CiC functions.

    You shouldn't be able to expel anyone, you shouldn't be able to dissolve the alliance, you shouldn't take substitutions from a third party, etc.

    If you are the CiC you have to be able to do "everything" but if you are a substitute, no.

    Although I repeat that this is only my opinion. O:-)

    Edited:
    If you need the CiC functions indeed, your CiC can assign you as Second Commander or like another CiC for a limited time. O:-)

    Whilst I understand your point, they introduced the ability of a CiC (and officers) to assign certain functions to a substitute. That doesn't work.
