Making Enlisted a Better Place №9
Each update of "Making Enlisted a Better Place" focuses on a particular aspect of the game or a particular mechanic, where we fix bugs or add interesting features.
The realized improvements mostly or even completely are based on the feedback you leave in the special topics and discussions on the online communities.
More experience and mine upgrades
Every action you take in battle should bring your long-awaited victory closer, even if it's not directly related to kills. We completely agree with that, so in the current episode we focus on rewarding you for your tactical actions and show you the mine upgrades that you were able to vote for recently.
More points for tactical actions
Since engineers are rewarded for building forts and other strategic structures, you can expect to be rewarded for destroying these enemy buildings for the good of your team.
Sandbags, barbed wire, stationary cannons and machine guns and, of course, respawn points — now you can also earn points in battle for destroying these objects. The method of destruction does not matter at all — take it apart by hand, destroy it with a grenade, explode it from a tank’s gun or smash an engineering rally point in hatred with a buttstock. The bottom line is the same — 5 to 45 points per destroyed object, depending on its tactical value.
We've also doubled the reward for capturing zones, and for destroying strategic objects in Destruction Mode. Now it will be more profitable to complete core mission tasks.
Another increase in points for Engineers themselves. Increased reward for respawning an ally at your rally point from 15 to 30 points!
We will continue to track your game tactics and think of worthy rewards for them.
You voted, we delivered. Take a look at how mines will behave in battle from now on, and fill your soldiers' pouches with them.
Increased activation range of anti-personnel mines
Now it isn't only about blocking a narrow doorway, but also about making a small room very dangerous.
Added a short delay when triggering an anti-personnel mine
Busted yourself? Now you have a little less than a second to leave the kill zone or go prone - both of which increase your chances of staying alive. Also after setting a mine you'll see a marker above it, just like a dropped enemy grenade.
Other Mine Upgrades
Both anti-tank and anti-personnel mines can now be set much faster. Another upgrade you asked for is that mines will be less likely to detonate from explosions nearby.
You can purchase mines for your soldiers in the "Logistics" tab. Each soldier has a separate inventory slot specifically for mines that does not take up space for other useful items.
