Making Enlisted a Better Place №12
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.
Upgrading the Respawn Window
Our updates are usually concerned with how the battles are fought. But this time the focus is on what happens right before the fighting: the respawn window. We've given it a few upgrades you'll surely appreciate.
To Battle without Delay
How many brilliant victories have you won just because of a handy rally point built by an Engineer? A simple building — that had a specific flaw. We're talking about your teammates "fighting" for the right to respawn on the rally point. At times such a "war of clicks" was as hot as an open shootout with the enemy. You've been telling us about this issue, and we're happy to announce that it is now in the past!
Now when several teammates choose to respawn at the rally point simultaneously, they will be put in a queue, showing them how many others wish to respawn in the same place. As soon as it's your turn — move out, to victory!
The timer will stop if a battle breaks out near the rally point, but you will still keep your position in the queue, so your squad will be ready to join the fight as soon as the bullets stop flying.
Be Tactically Prepared
Another helpful, nifty and logical way to make the respawn window better is adding the ability to view the mini-map and a list of players, as well as giving out quick commands with the help of the pie-menu (Alt button). Which you can use, for example, to request enemy co-ordinates before flying out on a bomber.
All of this has been added to the respawn menu. Use it all well!
