    This is the first big step on our way toward bringing more content to guilds.


    • Guild quests
    Embark on increasingly hard quests with your guild!
    Earn guild tokens that can be used in the guild raffle.
    Purchase guild quest boosters to speed up the progress for yourself and the entire guild!
    • Guild Raffle
    Use your hard-earned guild tokens to play the guild raffle board and earn great prizes!
    • Battle Replays
    Replay any match from your battle log. You can even change perspectives!
    Share your match to your guild at the end of the battle or from your battle log.
    • Guild Rivalries
    Compete against other guilds. Complete more quests than your rivals within the week to earn huge guild token rewards and bragging rights!
    • Battle highlights
    Get highlight medals in battle if you did something awesome!
    Check your total highlight medals in the battle end screen.
    • Blocking

    You can edit your block list in your player profile.

    Item Balancing
    • Duct Tape
    +8% repair amount.
    • Tesla Bolt
    Damaging a ship with Tesla resistance no longer removes the resistance.

    In the last update, item balancing was done incorrectly for Legendary Sniper Cannon (-7.5% damage) and Legendary Ballpark Mortar (+14% damage). This will be corrected in this update.
    Here is what this means for specific levels:
    • Legendary Ballpark Mortar
    Level 1: +14% damage

    Level 10: +10.1% damage

    Level 20: +6.6% damage

    Level 30: +4% damage

    Level 40: +1.9% damage

    Level 50: no change
    • Legendary Sniper Cannon
    Level 1: -7.4% damage

    Level 10: -5.3% damage

    Level 20: -3.6% damage

    Level 30: -2.1% damage

    Level 40: -0.9% damage

    Level 50: no change
    • Frost Blaster
    Fixed slowdown amount talents not working.

    Economy Balancing

    • Fixed an issue where burning weapons were contributing too much to a player's battle rewards.

    • Your own name is highlighted in the battle HUD with a different color.
    • Dialogs have been made larger.
    • Fixed sorting of players in battle log also to first use battle stars, and then sum of damage and healing.
    • Changed player chat menu to horizontal.
    • Improvements to weapon effects.

    • Added delay to confirmation when buying more inventory space.
    • Added particles to box opening.
    • Health pack "explodes" when it expires and heals 50% of its value to all ships within 2.5-unit radius.
    • Perks and item levels are now displayed in player profiles.

    No, this will mean the resistance will remain. So if you get stunned for 10 seconds, you get a 20 second resistance that reduces further incoming stuns by 50% for that duration etc.

    Oh, this? There is a little advanced part in the training tree that allows stun resistance to heal bolts, I believe? It's for that, I think.

    It just means that the stun immunity won't be removed with the stun when you take damage. Fantastic news!

    No. Just the opposite, when you get shot while stunned the stun resistance which shortens the future stuns is not removed.

    To elaborate: We always had the resistance to prevent you being chain stunned for 10 s then 10 s etc without being able to do anything inbetween. This resistance (and stun) broke on damage. We no longer remove the resistance on damage so it's a nerf to multiple teslas in a short time span against the same target.

    Yeap Yeap Yeap Yeap Yeap :)

    Loving the fact total healing and damage will be factored it. I hope this is reflected in battle rewards and stars! Fed up of 1 star wins after doing 30k+ healing just because of lowing damage.

    I think it means you can no longer shoot to remove the post stun resistance and then restun immediately after
