my thoughts on these changes

Quote

Added in 5 more contact levels for RIOT BETA with the new �Dragon� weapon skin as the reward for getting to Rank 10

adding 5 more levels for one extra reward is just doubling a problem riot already had, especially if contact standing continues to increase every level

 

 

Quote

Players now appear on the radar of the final zone of RIOT

this will certainly force people to actually play the final round, but i worry that it will further enhance the skill gap - no more sneaking up on players for surprise attacks

 

 

Quote

RIOT now always plays in peak daylight hours

im curious why this was added, was there some issue with night matches that im not aware of?

  • Minimum amount of players for RIOT is now 8 players

both good changes

 

i remain skeptical of allowing premade groups at all tho

good change, altho i think i would have preferred some work on the spawns themselves this will at least help

nice to see the joker store changes getting such a quick follow up

 

any eta/news on the new ways to gain JT?

 

 

 

overall its good to see steady work being put into riot, but i have to wonder at what point does it stop being worth the time? we've already been told that the mode was mainly created as a practice run for the devs, does this still hold true when the systems created are already in place?

im willing to try it (assuming riot doesnt remain dead on jericho) but i think the final zone radar change is for the worse - hide and seek may have been annoying but with the way that standing is rewarded (and i see no mention of changes to that) players are now forced to risk dying before the match ends and getting almost no standing, a problem only made worse by the addition of 5 more contact levels assumedly with higher and higher standing requirements

Yep that is an issue.

 

"does apply correctly"

 

 

My favorite part is

 

"RIOT now always plays in peak daylight hours"

 

does that mean what i think it does? does it start by itself?

I think we decoded that it means there is not going to be a day/night cycle in the RIOT instances anymore

Good pick to add the Colby .45 AP. The rest is just... more riot? Really? It's already pretty exhausted no matter how much you polish and fix it. Players will flood it for the reward (if even) and then leave again back to missions and fight club. It's a lot more like a chore than a game mode to most of us (at least to me) and I think that focusing on the missions game mode has much higher potential success rates for bringing players back.

 

Then again, it's what comes after 3.5 comes out that matters most, not any of this.

.45 for 6k JT seems like a great deal, I spent like 30€ on that thing...

But let me guess, riot kills still don't count towards weapon roles.

Getting .45 permanently for JT was a good move

JT Weapons added to the Joker Store: Keep them coming

Fun fact is that people are playing more FC than RIOT because of the rewards.

Also RIOT is still boring, some ideas:

 - increase the rewards with more JT, otherwise people will just join FC

 - Tweak it so that you have more action between the fights. Get rid of the arming device thing, make it automatically, more dynamic. Maybe some mines? Running around arming devices is not fun at all.

 - Buying your custom loadout is not good. The BR is supposed to be random. Don't have to mention that there are NTEC and OCA gods out there. I suggest you guys remove the custom loadout. Wanna play it? Go FC then.

Add please Agrotech ACES Rifle JT2 or Agrotech ACES Rifle R&D III as permanent weapon to Joker Store)

One reward for 5 contact levels is quite ridiculous if you ask me.

 

All the previous contacts unlock 1 or even more items per level.
