PvP Updates Thread

Vota wins, loss, and other stats are not updated in both the book in /pvp, nor the website.

Well, I tried out 1v1 too, and that also seems to be doing the same thing. No win/loss update in neither the book nor website.
All website stats seem to be frozen atm, 1v1 isn't budging. Prowess gain is also broken.

quick question about potent word aura, is there a cap on how many hp/dmg pots you can have? or can you just camp at the back of a fight and then go in with tons of pots?

I believe the cap is 3 hp pots and 4 damage pots... possibly 5. Though, I am uncertain how the aura triggers. If it triggers on a constant running timer or if it triggers once the potent word ends its cooldown.

It runs on a constant timer and caps at max 3 heal potions and 3 harming potions depending on whether you have those talents. Otherwise, 2/2.

You can get 4 pots if you're nearby when Rallying Cry is used, but PWA will only get you up to 3 if you have Potion Slinger/Potency.

  • Both Red and Blue bases have been updated visually and moved slightly to encourage slightly better balance. This is a WIP and we are tracking a lot of statistics with games now in order to get a feel for imbalances.
  • Entering an enemy base will very nearly instantly kill you.
  • All artifacts were raised by 2 blocks so they don't work to mitigate knockback as easily.

  • Inventory preferences for Potions should now finally work. This should also include getting potions from Rallying Cry, Potent Word Aura, etc.
  • Silence now prevents potions from being thrown for it's duration.
  • Fixed a bug with Silence where it did always actually silence abilities.
  • Arrows blocked by Reflexes now emit arrow-like particles (instead of spell particles) and play a noise when you block (for coolness)
  • If you have Groove, hitting a player with Reflexes active will no longer give you Groove stacks, but will not reduce your stacks either.

  • A new matchmaking algorithm is in place pending the next server restart that should do a better job putting teams together. It's a simple answer for now, but one that will still change when the actual Season 4 BG Rating changes go into play.
  • Added a 45s delay between a VotA ending and a new one starting to help with weird states of VotA that happen when games happen in quick succession.

Too lazy to make a report, but in VoC a pick will override your abilities if your bar is full and they won't appear in your inventory to be moved.

  • Explosive Arrow's cooldown was increased to 45s up from 35s
  • Last Stand's cooldown was decreased to 40s from 45s
  • Fixed (I think) Rallying Cry not correctly giving nearby friendlies the speed buff when it is cast. Jury's still out on whether the "Speed Zone" it drops even works...
