Today’s Repopulation patch makes ‘massive changes’ to combat

This didn't work out all right.

If you’re looking to test The Repopulation this morning, well, it’s going to be down for four to eight hours. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the extensive break is allowing the devs to apply the 15.1.1 patch, which features “massive changes to the combat system.”

Every skill in the game has been examined with an eye toward balance and improvement, with melee skills receiving the most upgrades. New stats have been introduced, while buffs and debuffs have been tweaked to be more reliable and “reduce the amount of chance in an encounter.”

Combat is also getting a visual upgrade, chiefly in regard to ranged weapon animations. Above & Beyond says that a melee animation pass is planned. 15.1.1 includes texture upgrades, too, as well as a healthy portion of other stuff that you’ll find in the official build notes.

The graphics are constantly being improved, but it is a little bit at a time thing. Missing graphics being added, placeholders being replaced, textures being upgraded, etc. It’s something expected to be ongoing until launch.

I had a look at a few gameplay videos on youtube of this game . The graphics looked very outdated do they intend to upgrade them at some point before release ?

So … just a simple question … how does one get into The Repopulation ( other than cash since … I am embarrassed to say I am currently looking for work )? 0_o

Golden_Girl  So let me get this straight… You don’t think the H1Z1 devs have been doing a good job since the game hit Steam?
Amazing.  Absolutely amazing.  I’ve seen your cynical little jokes all over this website, and others,but now I realize that you’re truly just insane.

deeggale devin007 The action combat is buggy, but it seems to fit the game better than the full on tab-target, though to be fair it’s not full on shooter mode either… I think the idea works and it just needs a bit of work to get right.
