Pilots!

In today's blog post we will tell you about some important changes that await you in the game this week!

For a start, we would like to tell you about the introduction of a new feature to the game, titled ‘Voice Chat’.

We are rolling out the first version of this system, which will be handy for those who play alone and do not participate in organized squads. This feature will be available in all of the game modes, you just need to enable it in the chat settings!

‘Voice Chat’ utilises Push-to-talk, that is, it will be necessary to hold down a button to activate it. By default, the button to activate voice communication is ‘Y’. However, you can always remap it in the "Key Binds" menu.

We think it is important to emphasize that the system is installed on the servers in test mode, so we encourage our pilots to leave their comments about it keeping this in mind!

In addition to the voice communication function, we also have a new PvP map ‘Iridium Strand’ waiting for our players. It's based on the design of the best map competition winner — Kyril (Secret Coal Mines). This map is based on the principles of symmetry — the starting conditions for the two teams are almost identical. Also, while creating the map, we were guided by the idea that pilots have to move as much as possible and have options for various tactical moves, so there's little space for camping.

Below you can see a brief video of a test flight!

 

Of course, exciting news do not end there: we have finalized the current rating system — in its previous version only a limited number of corporations was shown, but now, our pilots can find information for each of the corporations in the game!

In addition, this week you will see the expected completion of effectiveness gain calculation. Now, when you deal damage to an enemy while supporting allies, you will get the greatest efficiency multiplier.

This concludes today's article, if you have any questions about the described features — leave a comment below!

Sincerely,
Star Conflict team.

Another question, will be the new map available in PvP or just in Sector Conquest. Will we be able to play all the game types in this map if it's also available for PvP?

As far as I am aware it will be availible in PvP, as well as in Custom battle, there will be other modes too, not only 'Capture the beacon'.

Anti if you really want to help random players could you fix the MM so one squad must face another squad on the other side pls....

 

Just played 6 sector conquest match and have been matched vs Nova, Spin, death squad all the time and no squad on my side in anymatch...This can't be normal...!!! Obviously we lost all of them.. so fun lol

 

Anyway looking forward to the otehr changes..

Is the Command, engeneer efficiency gain going to be fixed?

As far as I know, Sector Conquest has no matchmaking, it's designed for corp vs corp games, if you and other players join alone then you're going to suffer. 

 

It is indeed normal.

There is no matchmaker in Sector Conquest. This is intended.

Once again: Sector Conquest mode is not a place for random players. This mode is for corporate players. We are satisfied with how matchmaker works in this mode.

 

Yes, if you are killing an enemy, you will get the higher amount of synergy (either for damage or for support)

Great to hear efficiency and synergy get's improved, so healers/"supporters" don't get punished for shooting at stuff.

Because Nova and SYN are on the same side of the conflict. You can't fight other corporations who fight for the same side.

For the moment we need to see how Voice chat will work on live servers (it was quite fun during internal testing), so for now settings are a bit limited. As soon as we gather more data on how it behaves on 'live' we will see what other settings may be added (without damaging its functionality). So please, test it to your heart's content and provide us with feedback on it.

There will be mining stuff or it's just decorative? 

I'm asking because iridium is the way to build Dreadnoughts afaik, so it would make sense.

The new map looks incredible.  Love the layout.  I can see LRFs not being able to do much with that many warp gates.
