8 vs 8 Elimination Battlegrounds Coming Tomorrow

news_2017_4_19_8vs8

Robocraft’s latest BRAWL, Elimination Battlegrounds, will be updated tomorrow (20th April) with a new 8 versus 8 player count! Formerly this BRAWL was 5 versus 5 only.

The BRAWL is still based around the classic Elimination formula (single spawn, last team to survive wins) bolstered with the new maps and more robots on the battlefield to dial up the mayhem.

Tomorrow’s update also has a small number of improvements and bug fixes – all of which are detailed below:


NEW:

BRAWL RULES:

  • Game Mode: Elimination
  • Maps: All
  • Number of Players: 8 vs 8*
  • Permitted Weapons: All weapons and movement parts permitted
  • Special Rules: None
  • Bonus: 2x XP + additional crate

*As mentioned previously, this BRAWL was formerly 5 vs 5 only.

BUG FIXES:

  • Capture points in Elimination Battlegrounds now sync up more closely to the capture point geometry.
  • More EXP sticker placement optimized for multiple languages.
  • Removed small hiding spot by the nose of the spacecraft on the Vanguard’s End map which small bots could manipulate for protection.
  • Updated collision geometry for the crashed spaceship on Vanguard’s End to minimize the ability of smaller robots to hide between the ship’s different wall layers.

OTHER CHANGES:

  • Minor translation improvements in main menu
  • Made the Carbon 6 branding on the Sprinter Leg a brighter shade, so it is easier to see when players change the component’s color.
  • More EXP sticker placement optimized for multiple languages.
