Patch 1.4.1 was rolled out on March 14, 2018. Patching begins at 9:00 CET and downtime is scheduled for 2 hours.
New Feature: Twitch Live Stream Indicator
Players now have the option to display that they are live streaming Battlerite on Twitch.tv in the menu UI. This indicator is currently supported in the solo Leaderboards, Profile, and Friends List. The indicator also provides a direct link to the live channel in the users preferred browser.
- To use this feature, you must have linked your Twitch account in Options > Account
- The Twitch Live Stream Indicator is turned on by default. It can be disabled in Options > General > Misc (this option is only shown if you have already linked your Twitch account)
- The indicator will only apply when you are Live on the Twitch account you have linked your Battlerite account with and tagged Battlerite as the game you are playing
- It can take between 5-15 minutes for the menu to update from when a player started live streaming
Free Team Name Change
Due to a bug some teams did not receive their free team name change after Patch 1.4 was released. All teams who should have received a free team name change should have now received one. One free team name change will be given to all teams who complete placement each Season. More information about team name changes can be read in the 1.4 Patch Notes.
New Unity Version
A new Unity version of Battlerite is available for players interested in testing. Please note that this version is still in its beginning phase of implementation.
While initially this version was available to all players, it has now been restricted with a password. If you are interested in trying out this version, please submit a ticket to support.battlerite.com with the title “Request for New Unity Version Access” and under the category of “Other.”
This version of Battlerite is meant to assist players who are struggling with game crashes in DirectX 11. We will try to keep this branch up to date with the live version, but there is a possibility it will lag behind a day or two in updates.
Some players may have noticed an increase in the amount of double support compositions in both Casual and League matchmaking. Before Patch 1.4, teams would be restricted to single support compositions.
With Patch 1.4 we removed this composition restriction. This was an adjustment to improve queue times and allow matches to be balance better by player skill and less according to Champions or archetypes.
According to our collected data, double support compositions have the same win ratio as single support compositions. However due to the feedback received by this change we’ve decided to tone down the amount of double support compositions. Players will now be restricted to single support compositions unless a player they are matched with has been in the queue for longer than 5 minutes.
We will continue to monitor data and listen to feedback so that we can better adjust this system as necessary.
