PC Patch 1.7.1 brings several fixes to a few core quality-of-life issues. Thanks to everyone for helping us identify (and resolve) them! We also just updated the market with the Ravenswood bundle, which you can see in all its dark, mysterious glory below.
KICK-BACK TO HANGAR MAINTENANCE ISSUE
Today's patch is designed to resolve an issue that has caused many players to get kicked back to the hangar while loading into a match. We’ve made some major changes to our underlying network technologies that should improve the game’s overall responsiveness.
Please let us know if you're still experiences any issues related to this bug.
ADDITIONAL 1.7.1. IMPROVEMENTS:
Potentially fixed an issue that caused the game to freeze in Onslaught mode.
Fixed an issue with the Purge Ram IV and V modules’ damage being too high (it is 4k for Purge Ram IV and 5.5k for Purge Ram V again).
Implemented several network and server optimizations. We've greatly reduced the amount of redundant information that clients send to other clients and the server. This should create a noticeable improvement in game responsiveness as well as fewer network timeouts.
During this maintenance period, we will be performing system software upgrades on our servers.
NEW TO THE PC MARKET: THE RAVENSWOOD BUNDLE!
Is the raven a symbol of luck...or an omen of death? It depends on who you ask, because this enigmatic bird has a diversity of meanings. If you ask Bix, the founder of Sinley Bay, you might not get a response—just a casual gesture toward the massive, legendary Zmey-class Dreadnought he used to command: the Ravenswood.
Style any of your ships with the ominous items of Bix’s notorious Ravenswood for 2,300 GP!
THE RAVENSWOOD COATING AND DECAL
Cover your vessel with the Ravenswood’s fearsome claw decal (125 GP) and coating (300 GP)!
For many cultures, the Morrigan is a raven-like goddess of fate, war and justice. It’s also the symbol of Project Morrigan, the Transhuman terraforming project that sculpted Venus into a livable planet. While this decal has a strong battle theme, it is mostly about honoring Bix’s home.
THE RAVENSWOOD EMBLEM
Outfit your ships with the ferocious, screaming skull of the Ravenswood emblem for 50 GP.
Bix had this sinister skull affixed to the Ravenswood when he led Icon Operations—an elite unit of the PCF— far out into the Uranian system to fight the Transhumans. Some say it represents courage. Others, madness.
