Warhawk v1.1 Patch and Arbiters
Dylan Jobe, Game Directer of Warhawk posted on the Playstation Blog that they have been working hard on addressing issues the Warhawk community are experiencing.
Currently they are working on 2 patches at the moment but discussed v1.1 patch in his post with v1.2 patch details coming soon. Here are the details for what updates they made already and what v1.1 patch are going to include:
* Stat database stability improvements
* Improved server stability
* Max Clan limit changed from 32 to 64
* Viral Rank-up bug fixed and correct for players that were accidentally ranked up.
* â€œTime-in-Vehicleâ€ Stats fixed so certain awards can now be granted properly.
Client-side updates for Patch v1.1
* Stat connection, fetch/post fixes
* Significantly improved client connection stability
* Quad â€œ????â€ Ping display bug fixed.
* Added support for Player-Ranked Servers.
* Game synchronization fixes due to fluctuating network conditions (packet-drop).
* Crash fixes for end of game and split screen.
The v1.1 patch should arrive by the end of the month.
Also in the post is that they are responding to complaints about people stat-padding and to people messing with the Warhawk community which they say they will not take lightly.
To protect and ensure peace reigns in the land they are officially announcing the Warhawk Arbiters. The Arbiters will oversee pretty much all things Warhawk and join games for observations. In Dylan Jobe words they are pretty much like judges in Judge Dredd.
Warhawk Arbiters, “have the authority to warn players, call a player out to prove his or her skills or render judgment. Judgment can take many forms, an email warning, forum post, a kick, temporary/permanent ban, or the Warhawk Arbiters can request your Warhawk stats be cleansed.”
Its nice to see this kind of support for any game. This is what keeps fans happy and this patch can’t come soon enough. I know I stopped playing for a bit because of connection and stat problems. Nothing worse to me then not having your stats update properly especially when your doing good. Also with Judge Dredd in the mix Warhawk fans should be happy for a while.
