PC Game Update 1.11 Hero Image

PC update 1.11 puts plenty of options at your fingertips. Enjoy greater control over your ships, more insight into matches, and plenty of bold and colorful items to wear into battle.

Features Header

Secondary Loadout Slots

Secondary Loadouts


What's better than one loadout? Two! Now you don't have to choose between taking a Thrust Amplifier or Blink Warp into battle. Every ship (excluding Hero Ships) now has an “A” and “B” loadout slot.

Each loadout can be equipped with its own modules and cosmetics, then selected in the Orbit screen or mid-match on the respawn screen. And no matter which loadout you choose for a ship, you’ll still get the same XP and match rewards.

DN_Patch_Notes_DevNoteWith this update, we hope that players feel free to try unconventional modules on their secondary loadouts (since they will already have their trusted primary loadouts). We also wanted to give players greater flexibility to adapt to the tactics of the opposing team mid-match.

 

Module Prerequisites Removed

No Lines In The Tech Tree 1.11

No more unlocking modules in a certain sequence to get to the bottom of a tech tree! Now all of a ship’s modules are available to research and unlock at the same time.

DN_Patch_Notes_DevNoteThe removal of prerequisites means that players are now free to research and purchase the modules they want, in whatever order they desire. We think this will allow them to quickly unlock their preferred modules for their primary loadout, and give them the option to experiment with the rest in a secondary loadout.

 

Say Hello to Hangar Chat

Hangar chat is now live! Now you can chat with your squad in the comfort of your hangar. Don’t have a squad? Not to worry: we’ve also included global chat in your language to help you find someone to watch your back in battle!

 

Module + Secondary Weapon Videos

Module Preview Video

We’ve added videos to all ship modules and secondary weapons. This allows you to get a better idea of what each one does—especially before choosing to research or purchase them. We have also made additional changes, which include:

  • Revising 30 descriptions of ship modules and secondary weapons so that they correctly describe current functionality

  • Fixing several ship modules and secondary weapons that were making incorrect numerical comparisons with previous tiers


New End-Of-Match Screen

PC 1.11 End Of Match Screen CM Preview

Enjoy an updated end-of-match scoreboard with your captain in full view! The end-of-match screen provides a quick look at the top 3 players, your personal stats as well as the rewards you earned in each ship you played.


End of Match Screen 2

DN_Patch_Notes_DevNoteOur goal for this change two-fold. We wanted to celebrate the best players after a match (besides just featuring them at the top of the scoreboard) and to provide more insight into the rewards for every player.

 

Hangar Calls to Action

Calls to Action will now display to alert you to various opportunities in the hangar. For example: when you earn your first GP, you’ll be notified that you can go buy a cosmetic item in the Market.

 

Razer Peripheral Compatibility

Battle with a wider spectrum of fire and flame. The skies of Dreadnought now support a full fleet of Razer Chroma peripherals!


New Language: Polish

Polish is now available in-game! To switch to Polish, simply select the language from the “language” dropdown menu in the top-right corner of the launcher and hit “play.”

 

UI Improvements

We continue to polish the look and usability of the UI. Our latest changes include:

  • Replacing the Dashboard button with a direct link to the Statistic Screen. The Dashboard is still accessible through a new button in the secondary bar near the Play button

  • Converting UIs that still used the original style to be more in line with the current Dreadnought style

  • Improvements to the billing and payments UI


Additional Improvements

  • Re-tuned corvette AI to increase survivability: now corvettes do not attack too aggressively without proper allied support

  • Rebalanced AI for new players in Proving Grounds matches

  • Added a preview window to bundles within the Market so you can see all included items

  • Tweaked the ship manufacturer logos in the manufacturer trees

  • Updated the lighting, look and performance of the hangar

  • Polished map visuals on Ixion


New items added to the market including a fanged Hero Ship, a value bundle for players old and new, outlaw captain vanity, and bold ship cosmetics!

Dreadnought

Health

Tier III Dreadnoughts had very low HP compared to Tier IV and since Tier II  has been removed from veteran matches the Tier IIIs can now be made to hold their own against a TIV.  That’s why we buffed them a little.

  • Tier III Light Dreadnought HP increased from 36000 to 38000

  • Tier III Medium Dreadnought HP increased from 45000 to 48000

Bombers - Mines (All Tiers)

Plasma Broadsides (All Tiers)

According to your feedback these were outclassed by Ballistic Broadside which has a higher range and shorter cooldown. We made the Plasma Broadside hit harder to put them in the same ballpark as the Ballistic broadside.

  • Tier II Plasma Broadside projectile damage increased from 975 to 1000

  • Tier III Plasma Broadside projectile damage increased from 960 to 1000

  • Tier V Plasma Broadside projectile damage increased from 900 to 1000

Tractor Beam (All Tiers)

The combination of Tractor Beams with a Plasma Broadside makes an interesting and rewarding combo. We buffed the tractor beams a little to motivate you to try that one.

  • Tier II Duration increased from 12s to 15s

  • Tier III Duration increased from 15s to 18s

  • Tier IV Duration increased from 15s to 20s

  • Tier V Duration increased from 15s to 20s

  • Tier III Projectile Damage increased from 190 to 305

  • Tier IV Projectile Damage increased from 150 to 240

  • Tier V Projectile Damage increased from 150 to 280


Corvette

Autoguns
  • Tier V Duration increased (and standardized) from 16s to 20s

Heavy Torpedo

According to your feedback this one is outclassed by the Weaponbreaker Torpedo so we buffed it a little.

  • Tier I Cooldown reduced from 55s to 45s

  • Tier II Cooldown reduced from 50s to 40s

  • Tier III Cooldown reduced from 45s to 35s

  • Tier IV Cooldown reduced from 43s to 30s

  • Tier V Cooldown reduced from 40s to 25s

Scrambler Mines (All Tiers)

The Corvette mines were acting more like unguided bombs that could be dropped all together on a single ship beneath the Corvette. These changes (and the general changes to the mines) should make them behave more like actual mines.

  • Mine  Damage increased from 800 to 1200

  • Mine Activation Radius increased from 160m to 240m

  • Mine Damage Radius increased from 200m to 400m

Light Proximity Mines (All Tiers)
  • Mine Activation Radius increased from 160m to 240m

  • Mine Damage Radius increased from 200m to 400m


Artillery Cruiser

All Autobeams (All Tiers)

A good Artillery Cruiser captain can defend an entire fleet using these autobeams. That’s not intended so we decided to cut the range.

  • Range reduced from 2000m to 1500m

Mine Catapult (All Tiers)

In experienced hands the mine catapult was very OP and in need of a nerf!

  • Mine Activation Radius increased from 200m to 440m

  • Mine Damage Radius increased from 240m to 480m

  • Mine Trigger Time increased from 0.5s to 1s

  • Tier IV Mine Damage reduced from 7500 to 5000

  • Tier V Mine Damage reduced from 6000 to 3750

Proximity Mines (All Tiers)

  • Tier III Mine Cooldown increased from 6s to 12s

  • Tier IV Mine Cooldown increased from 5s to 10s

  • Tier V Mine Cooldown increased from 4s to 8s

  • Mine Damage Radius increased from 240m to 480m

  • Tier III Mine Cooldown increased from 6s to 12s

  • Tier IV Mine Cooldown increased from 5s to 10s

  • Tier V Mine Cooldown increased from 4s to 8s


Tactical Cruiser

Overclock Module
  • Tier V Cooldown reduced from 45 to 40

Tractor Beam Pod

That’s a very interesting module that was not living up to its full potential and was therefore not very popular. We now decided to allow Tactical Cruisers to spawn two pods. This might be a little bit too much but we want to check it out anyway. Pods demand some teamwork but used properly, they are highly effective and can be great fun.

  • Maximum Active Pods increased from 1 to 2
hile the number of pods spawned per activation of this module remains 1, we have increased the maximum number of active pods from a single captain from 1 to 2. Savvy captains will therefore be able to get more utility out of this module when used in combination with other modules or officer briefings.

  • Tier III Cooldown reduced from 80s to 65s

  • Tier IV Cooldown reduced from 75s to 60s

  • Tier V Cooldown reduced from 70s to 55s

  • Tier IV Light Tactical Cruiser Forward Force increased from 45000 to 65000

  • Tier IV Light Tactical Cruiser Reverse Force increased from 45000 to 65000

  • New speed is 708m/s without energy, and 1278m/s with energy

  • Tier V Light Tactical Cruiser Forward Force increased from 45000 to 65000

  • Tier V Light Tactical Cruiser Reverse Force increased from 45000 to 65000

  • New speed is 708m/s without energy, and 1278m/s with energy
