    Sad for people like me who looked forward to TDM coming to Ranked and get essentially nothing new after this once so big announcement. If at least the event had started immediately...
    So no Battle Bay one other day. You choose it, Rovio.. Three are other nice games, too.

    so I like the bonus gold and sugar, but I have concerns about casual mode. It will defiantly be nice to try out new boats and potential wepons, but after a while it might become a wasteland. The reason why is you don’t get any resources out of it. I think events and ranked battles will be solid. I will be interested in seeing how infamy will work next season as it is still not updated.

    Season reward boxes do look better as well. 5 epic pieces and a legendary piece and legendary parts for ace 1 is a big upgrade. So far I like theses pieces for the update, for TDM ranked I am still holding off until I play it as I think there will be some growing pains.

    Is the infamy change only applicable in the events? I just played a hardcore match and everyone still went + or - 24 infamy as usual.

    QUOTE="The Grim Repair, post: 195487, member: 13052"]Dear Captains,

    the new update is just around the corner and we have a bunch of awesome and new things for you in store!
    We will go live THIS WEEK still - so stay alert. :)
    Without further ado:

    NEW
    • Casual Mode: Play the game for fun and complete quests without the fear of losing infamy! There is no league bonus, for that you have to play Ranked Mode!
    • Hardcore Team Deathmatch lets you play with your whole shipyard and bring more than one ship into battle. When your ship is destroyed during battle, you respawn in a different ship that you own.
      You only need one ship to be able to play this game mode. However, when you bring only one ship,once you are sinked, you won't respawn.
    • Added new tier to Nightmare League!
      [​IMG]
      Nightmare I (minimum requirement 5K Infamy) and Nightmare II (minimum requirement 4K Infamy) will be available with the next Season after the Update goes live.
    Items:

    View attachment 25229
    • Standard torpedo
      A hybrid between swift torpedo and big torpedo! Standard torpedo is for those situations where you want a lot of aoe damage, fast!
    View attachment 25230

    • Big Bandage
      Another alternative for those who want more regen in their 2-slot blue slots!
    Special:
    View attachment 25231
    • Battle Bay hits Twitch!
      We will have a 24/7 LIVE STREAM on our official channel PlayBattlebay where you can watch the top Captains battle it out Day & Night!
    BALANCING
    • Nerfed Firebomb damage by 10%
    IMPROVEMENTS
    • Significantly increased Season Rewards
      Pieces, power cells and parts have all been increased for every league and sugar has been added as a reward!
    • Battle Bonus rewards:
      gold and sugar battle rewards are doubled.
      HOWEVER: Casual and Event battles do not receive the reward bonus from your league tier. Only Ranked uses the bonus. now.
    • Changed Infamy to be more granular so that it better reflects your performance over time. Everyone will gain their personalized infamy!
    BUG FIXES
    • Ship sfx are now back to normal decibel levels
    • Fixed defender hybrid slot displaying wrong slot value(s) when exchanging teal and blue items.
    Announcements!

    Events

    Events will start again as soon as the update goes live.
    In the first week we will hold a couple of “flash” events, 2 days each featuring the new Hardcore Team Deathmatch game mode. We are very excited about this and want to hear all your feedback! Please let us know your thoughts on Discord!

    After that, regular rotation of events will continue as you know it. :)

    Seasons
    Season 62 starting Monday 14th will feature Team Eliminiation as usual.
    Future seasons may use other battle modes.[/QUOTE]

    I haven’t had to wait long for hardcore or casual battles today.
    I guess that means that not everybody quit after all?
    :)

    Edit: after seeing HCTDM I reserve the right to retract this post :(

    Why didn't they make another reward for completing 24 daily quest? it would not be bad, do not you think so?

    No from what I seen and what mod said in vip you have to set up boats before battle and the setup you have going into battle is then fixed.

    That's the thing... players will play where the rewards are greatest, which is why everyone has been in Event TDM. If no one is playing ranked matches, the League system starts to make little sense, because no one is contributing to Infamy. So I think it's a great idea to put the best rewards in ranked matches. If we are left with rewards like this events > ranked > casual, and Events are not ranked, we'll remain in the same system where everyone will be in events, and the League system continues to deteriorate.

    Actually, the word "may" was used.

    0FD08416-5E92-4564-8AB0-C58A4BF6686E.png Wasn’t there talk about the amount of infamy you gained/lost being a result of your battle stats? Why would the guy that did the least (on enemy team) lose the smallest amount of infamy?

    Aside from that, I’m really looking forward to these changes! Everything looks interesting.

    Agreed, that's opposite of what we would have expected.

    Is that in the battle log or just the post battle screen?

    The op now says once you're sinked you won't respawn. Why would someone bring one ship if they can't respawn ? P2Ws are going to have a big advantage tbh.

    It was a screenshot I took after the battle. But, infamy adjustments do show up in the battlelog.
