Elite Turret Upgrades, ONP Unit Improvements – July 27 Patch Notes

Elite Turret Upgrades, ONP Unit Improvements – July 27 Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

Elite Turret Level 24 Upgrades

  • The following advanced turret weapons can now be upgraded to Level 24 using new blueprints from the Event Prizes store:
    • FASCAM
    • C-RAM
    • HEL Laser
    • M45 Quadmount
    • Artillery

ONP Unit Improvements

  • The Elite Rifleman, BMP-1 now have 20% greater HP at all levels.
    • This is in addition to the increases of 20% HP each unit received in the June 29 and July 13 updates.
  • (Thunder Run only): The MQ-8B also gains 20% greater HP at all levels
    • DoV’s version of this unit already has boosted HP

Hardware TOC Allocation

  • In Single-Player AI bases and AI-controlled bases on the Map, now 40% of available Hardware loot will come from destroying the TOC. Destroying Hardware Depots alone will yield only 60% of the total Hardware in the base.
  • In addition, a bug was fixed that previously caused AI bases to shift less than the intended amount of loot from Hardware Depots into the TOC. The new 40% assignment should apply in all cases now, even on second and following attacks against the same base.

(Thunder Run only) Non-Map Matchmaking Improved

  • A bug has been fixed in the match-making system used for Thunder Run’s “Non-map” regions. This fix makes it more likely that players looking for a Multiplayer opponent will be able to find one, instead of being told there is nobody to fight.

Good hunting, Commanders!

Unit Stat Improvements

Unit Stat Improvements

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

Unit Stat Upgrades

  • The Elite OH-58 and Elite Rifleman now feature individually-upgradable Health and Damage stats, similar to other elite units.
  • All Infantry with upgradable Health and Damage stats can now have those stats upgraded to Level 6, for a +20% bonus above the base strength.
    • These Level 6 stat upgrades require Unit Stat Blueprints, available for ONP in a new section of the Event Prizes store.

Other Unit Improvements

  • The Elite Rifleman, BMP-1, and MQ-8B now have 10% greater HP at all levels.
    • This is in addition to the 10% HP already added to these units in the June 29 update.
  • The Elite BMP-1 now has 50-80% greater HP at all levels.
  • The BMP-1 now features stronger security teams at Level 10 and above:
    • Level 10: Combat Engineer added to the security team
    • Levels 13-15: Sapper is now the security team, instead of Combat Engineer
  • (Thunder Run only): The Elite MQ-8B gains 30-50% greater HP at all levels (now matching this unit’s current stats in DoV).

Good hunting, Commanders!

Season 7 will begin immediately after the end of the tournament. The following changes are planned for Season 7:

  • The “shark tank” level at which players can be attacked by anyone will rise from Level 33 to Level 39. This change gives Level 36-38 players protection against attacks from higher-level enemies.
  • Two new maps, Maps 608 and 609, will open to all players.
  • Four older maps will be retired: Maps 203, 206, 223, and 225.

Patch Note: June 29, 2017

Patch Note: June 29, 2017

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

Gameplay Updates

  • The Elite Rifleman, BMP-1, and MQ-8B now have 10% greater HP.
  • The option to trade in expired ONP for Hardware will be available again during the next special event week.

Technical Updates

  • When using consumable items like missiles and boosts in battle, if you have more than one stack of the same item with different expiration dates, the game will now use up the earliest-expiring stack first.
  • A “restack” button has been added to the Warehouse inventory. Pressing this button will organize your items into the fewest stacks possible to save space. (note: stacks with different expiration dates must still remain separate, and the usual stacking limit for each item type still applies).
  • Fixed a bug that caused the chat text box to lose keyboard focus when the mouse cursor is moved away from it.
  • A UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter arrives at the pickup zone in a joint-training exercise during Operation Atlantic Resolve. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Thomas Scaggs)

Thunder Run: Hardware Loot Shift

Thunder Run: Hardware Loot Shift

New this week in Thunder Run:

  • In Single-Player bases and AI-controlled camps, 30% of Hardware loot is now shifted from Hardware Depots/Yards into the TOC.

This change is intended to solve the problem where players attack AI camps on the map, destroy Hardware Depots/Yards, but leave the TOC untouched, preventing fresh new camps from spawning.

From now on, players who want to loot all available Hardware must destroy the TOC, which will cause the camp to disappear and be replaced by a fresh new copy elsewhere on the map.

Good hunting, Commanders!

ONP Trade-in Offer (This week only!)

ONP Trade-in Offer (This week only!)

Only this week in Thunder Run:

Left-over Ops Needs Points can be traded in for Hardware after the end of this special event.

When the special event store closes this Saturday, June 24 at 1700GMT, any remaining ONP in your Warehouse will automatically convert to “Obsolete ONP” that you can trade in for Hardware, at a ratio of 2 Hardware per ONP.

To perform the trade-in, wait until after the event Store closes on Saturday at 1700 GMT, then click the “Obsolete ONP” item in your Warehouse and choose “Trade All In”.



Notes:

  • Obsolete ONP must be traded in for Hardware before the start of the next event; it cannot be carried over between event weeks.
  • This is a one-week-only offer. We will let you know in advance if we plan ONP trade-ins for any future week.
  • Hardware storage is limited by your Depot space. Check your Hardware Depots before trading.

Good hunting, Commanders!
