DUST mercenaries,

 

Here's a message from one of our level designers, CCP Tigris regarding current and planned changes to the map rotations in DUST 514.

 

"Dear players,

 

Thank you for your valuable feedback! The DUST Development Team would like to make sure that we deliver the best gameplay experience possible. In order to get players into the battle they want to be in when they want to be in it, we will be introducing a new Instant Battle category called Ambush Off-Map Support, hereafter referred to as Ambush (OMS).

 

Players will be able to select between Ambush and Ambush (OMS) in the Instant Battle section of the Battle Finder. The difference between these game modes is as follows:

 

Ambush: Two teams of mercenaries will fight to the death, each team attempting to deplete the available clone reserves of the other team within the allotted mission time. If the mission timer expires before a team is eliminated, the team with the most available clones will be deemed victorious.

 

Ambush (OMS): Two teams of mercenaries will fight to the death, each team attempting to deplete the available clone reserves of the other team within the allotted mission time. As the battle progresses, off-map support in the form of turrets and other assets will be dropped from orbit onto the battlefield to assist whichever side is able to claim them. If the mission timer expires before a team is eliminated, the team with the most available clones will be deemed victorious.

 

Being able to select your favorite battle format from these choices will help get you into the battle you want to be in quickly and easily. 

 

As always, player feedback is greatly appreciated. Please let us know which of these battle types is your favorite, and let us know what changes you would like to see in future versions of these battle types. 

 

Thank you!"

 

You will be able to select "Skirmish", "Ambush", and "Ambush OMS" from the instant battle tab after DT tomorrow January 29th. 

 

Also, as part of the changes to map rotation, we have removed the “Fetalis North Ward” and “Fetalis Central Ward” maps/game modes from current map rotation. We will also be removing the Skirmish "Skim Junction" and Ambush "Skim Junction" map/game modes after tomorrow's DT.
