    New:
    • All new look to the main Bay screen to show your ship and weapons!
    • Added Gear Score! It shows how strong your ship and items are.
    • You can now play the next battle without returning to the Bay.
    • Added new optional joystick mode: Center joystick to touch.
    • Added a cancel-shot area.
    • New splash screen.
    • Added a popup to show the result of a battle that has ended after you left while you are in the Bay screen.

    Improvements:
    • Show battle date in the results screen.
    • Graphical improvements to Defender MK7 model.
    • Small performance improvements.
    • Added 'predictive vertical aiming'-option to options menu.
    • Improved chat filtering (coming soon!).
    • Always use the highest quality model for the observed ship.
    • Changed resource info dialog to be available for gold, sugar, pearls and guild tokens in addition to upgrade materials.
    • Updated grey fleet icon to blue.
    • Small tweak on speeder textures.

    Balancing:

    • Shipwreck damage blocks all healing.
    • New icon for tesla shield duration, and duration is shown to enemy players.
    • Repair bolt now removes stun, remove stun heal block and also heal the target when talented.
    • Flare gun, Fire Bomb and Napalm deal their full lifetime damage to tesla shield with duration buffs included.
    • Weapons that break frost now also break frost heal reduction.
    • Repair Bolts that break frost now also break frost heal reduction.
    • Fixed Repair Box critical amount talents.
    • Napalm in combination with fire bomb/flare gun effects no longer gives multiple “damage to burning targets” bonuses.
    • Changed flare/frost healing reduction debuffs so that only the bigger one applies instead of stacking.
    • Fixed healing counting towards damage quests.

    Dev comments: Overall, many of these changes affect healing in a positive way, and fixers should have an easier time keeping players alive, including themselves.

    Tesla shields are now be easier to break with fire weapons, and you have more information to work with if you want to wait the duration out instead of breaking it.


    Fixes:
    • Fixed being able to fit range perks to healing bolt and showing a range for the healing.
    • Fixed battle countdown being stuck on the screen if enabling flight camera during countdown and disabling it afterwards.
    • Fixed player seeing wrong weapons for other players until they switch weapons after reconnecting during a match.
    • Fixed rare crash when trying to toggle guild boosts.
    • Fixed tier 4 items not showing upgrade arrow even when all evo requirements are met.
    • Fixed claimable weekly quests from previous week not showing in the client.
    • Fixed crit chance missing in explosive cannon item info.
    • Fixed “sneaky" highlight triggering under wrong conditions.
    • Fixer MK6 model quality improved when far away.
    • Fixed rare crash resulting from fleeting.
    • Fixed loading tips getting stuck on the screen if the game disconnects while in the matchmaking screen.
    • Fixed map names being broken in battle log in Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
    • Fixed players getting stuck to a battle that has ended in very rare cases.
    • Fixed replays not being saved in some very rare cases.

    Thanks for the update..
    Please tell us when the gameplay ping is going to be fixed.. US = 40ms - other countries above 200ms.. is that FAIR? 2018!
    So many players struggle to gain infamy and they do not know what is going wrong.. make it EQUAL please!

    Ping isn't the devs' fault it's the user's internet speed.

    Thanks for vertical aim "assist" becoming optional. Also like the healing changes.

    I assume that the following changes fixer from best questing boat to the worst? Correct interpretation?
    • Fixed healing counting towards damage quests.
    To be be fair it was quite strong before, now its back where it belongs!

    ---
    And a wish for next patch: More than 1 talent spec or a way to alter talents that doesnt have a 1 week cooldown.

    Great update. Tesla shield duration is a plus. Adding vertical aim option and centering joystick is just what I need. Thanks for the hard work devs. :)

    Please reconsider the napalm+flare combo. It was a unique and strategic way to utilize an already underused weapon, why bother change it.... Also Ex. Cannon is now even more devalued.

    Firebomb will have max duration whether shield is active or not...is it true.
    Finally we will have less crying babies in the bay.
