State of the Game - June 15th, 2017 - Commendations Teaser

Postby JokerUnique » Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:46 pm


Here are the changes that were implemented with the June 15th maintenance.

  • Fixed a bug where the Recovery link "auto-revive" feature would still work while another Signature Skill was on cool down.
  • Created an out of bounds area inside Midtown Music that will prevent players from staying inside the environment. A more permanent fix that will prevent access to this area entirely is coming in the next client side update.

This State of the Game focused on the Commendation-Feature of Update 1.7 and revealed some other new information about the next PTS and general bugs and issues with the game.

Hot Topics
Update 1.7
  • Update 1.7 has the goal to re-engage the community with the content and present the players with new ways to play the missions and the general content.
  • Update 1.8 is more of a content patch.

Update 1.7 PTS
  • There will be a console PTS for 1.7
  • We have no specific date yet.

Known Issues
Rapid Bug
  • Is just an UI issue, you can use it and get the full effect, it is just not displayed properly.

Looking Forward
Next State of the Game
  • Keith from Red Storm will join the State of the Game

Special Weekend Event
  • June 16th to June 19th
  • Extra Rewards from Named Bosses

DeadEye / Seekers
  • There will be changes to both of them and those will be tested on the next PTS
  • They also want to make sure, that both will be viable for PVE and PVP

  • Will be addressed

Update 1.7 – Commendations
As mentioned, Update 1.7 has the goal to re-engage the players with the content and the Global Events and the Commendations will support exactly that goal:
  • Commendations can be called achievements and are short and long-term goals for players.
  • They are retroactive, so long-term players will already have unlocked some of those achievements
  • Non-repeatable story achievements are of course already unlocked.
  • But not all of them are retroactive, because they were not tracked when the game launched – but that also gives you a perspective on how good you are doing with your progression.
  • The Commendations should motivate players to play the game in a different way and explore new content, builds and playstyles they have not tried before.
  • There are about 500 Commendations
  • Some Commendations are also tied into the Uplay, Xbox and PS4 achievements, so now we have one big achievement package.
  • Some Commendations have multiple steps and you get rewards for small goals and for the big goals – more details will follow
  • Not all numbers are final – they are still being fine-tuned

New Vanity Slot – Patches
  • When you complete a Commendation, you will be rewarded with a patch that is assigned to that Commendation
  • That patch is a new vanity item that can be placed on your agent.
  • The patch will replace the phoenix logo, that is now per default on your arm
  • This way you can mark yourself as a special capable agent

Commendation Examples
  • Complete legendary missions without going down or dying
  • Complete Dragons Nest without getting hit by one of the Cleaner Cars
  • Kill 1000 Rikers / Cleaners etc
  • Spend 3 minutes looking at the art gallery in Survival
  • Equip a Turtleneck
  • Close car doors
When you have ideas for achievements – post them in the forum

New Rank
  • A new rank will be added that is called “Commendation Score”
  • It is the sum of all your unlocked Commendations and basically shows your in-game experience.
  • The Commendation Score is account wide – so when you play on an alt, the other players still see your overall experience.
  • The Commendation Score will show the difference when all players have GS 256.
