Announcements / Rainbow Six Outbreak Packs
« Last post by lilith on Jan 25, 2018, 20:32:34 »


Outbreak and the new Outbreak Collection


An infestation of unknown origin is attacking the small town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. The danger is so high that the authorities quarantined the entire town, trapping civilians and soldiers inside. Very little information is filtering out, but the only certainty is that the situation is dire.
Outbreak is a four-week event where all Rainbow Six owners will be able to team-up with two of their friends to take on a mysterious threat. This free event will begin with the launch of the Year 3 Season 1 title update.
Within the duration of the 4 weeks event, an exclusive collection of cutting edge HazMat cosmetic will be available. This gear will be found in the Outbreak Packs.



In line with our promise to you from the beginning, the Outbreak Packs will not provide you with any gameplay elements, and will contain cosmetic items only.
The Outbreak Collection is composed of a total of 50 unique items, and no duplicates. What this means is, if you acquire 50 Outbreak Packs, we guarantee that you will have the entire Collection, including the Elite Uniform. They will contain universal weapon skins, unique weapon skins, headgear, uniforms, charms, as well as an Outbreak Collection exclusive of this season’s Elite Uniform. While there is a unique variation of the Elite Uniform available in the Outbreak Packs, the standard version of this Elite Uniform will be available for direct purchase once the event has started. All items in the pack will be either Rare, Epic, Legendary, and there will not be any content overlap between the Outbreak Packs and the Alpha Packs.



The Outbreak Packs can only be acquired for 300 R6 Credits each. That being said, a few other Outbreak rewards will be available through game play, and will be awarded based on other criteria to be disclosed at a later date.
All players that log in during the Outbreak Event will receive four Outbreak Packs immediately. For those of you who are new to the game and purchase the Advanced Edition before or during the Outbreak Event, you will receive the 10 packs that are included in the Advanced Edition, plus the four for logging in during the event. If you purchase the Advanced Edition after the event is over, you will still receive the 10 Outbreak Packs.

The Outbreak Collection will contain cosmetic gear for the following Operators:

-Two Chimera Operators
-Smoke
-Ying
-Buck
-Kapkan
-Hibana
-Zofia
-Fuze
-Ash
-Doc
-Thermite
-Tachanka
-Glaz

Oh no, Ella was my favourite defender this season. But 50 bullets in mag was really too much.
But they didn't specify what "reducing the overall strength of concussion effects" mean :/

Ash R4 damage nerf, I will have to test that out..
Twitch drone nerf to 5 shots, going down from 15 to 5 is way too low, 8-10 would be understandable.
Either way, drones can be easily detected and killed. It wasn't even that overpowered.

Have to try new graphic settings too.

4.2 PATCH NOTES

January 23rd on PC | 3:00 PM CET

BALANCE CHANGES

Ela’s SMG will have a reduced magazine size
We have decided to lower the magazine size of her SMG from 50 to 40 bullets.
Game Designer notes: Ela overpowers her competition. Players select her almost every round, and for a good reason. All of the data we have on her (such as win ratio, K/D ratio, and Kills per round) shows that she needs to be nerfed. We have found this to be primarily because of her SMG and to a lesser extent her concussion mines.
The recoil of her SMG was already nerfed slightly with Y2S3.2, but this did not have the impact that we hoped.
For now, we’re trying to balance her while keeping her SMG’s uniqueness, which lets her fight several opponents at a time better than other defenders. We will consider other ways of nerfing this weapon if this is not enough.
In addition to the reduced magazine size, we will be reducing the overall strength of concussion effects across the board.

Reduction in Concussion effects
With Y2S4.2 patch, concussion effects will no longer disable sprinting. It will still reduce movement speed and camera rotation speed, but affected targets will recuperate much faster (4 sec, instead of 7 sec). The effect on sight and hearing will still last a total of 7 sec.
Game Designer notes: This change will affect both Ela and Zofia. We believe this will most heavily impact Ela, as Zofia also has impact grenades to rely on for increased effectiveness.
Compared to other gadgets of this nature, the concussion effect is superior in almost every way: it greatly affects movement speed, massively slows down rotation speed, and also reduces a player’s ability to hear and see.

Ash’s R4-C nerf
We reduced the damage of the R4-C to 39 (from 41).

Game Designer notes: Ash is still a pick that is too attractive when compared to other attackers. We’ve compared her most popular weapon (R4-C) to other assault rifles stats and given the R4-C’s very high rate of fire (860), its damage is a bit too high.
*We are aware of a visual issue with Suppressed damage not displaying properly in the Menu. The values in-game are true to the table above.

Capitao’s Para-308 buff
We increased the Para-308’s raw damage is to 48 (from 43). We also slightly reduced the intensity of the random components of its recoil.

Game Designer notes: Capitao right now is not attractive enough. His gadget suffers from a few issues that will need long-term solutions, but in the meantime, it’s clear that his main assault rifle is too weak.
*We are aware of a visual issue with Suppressed damage not displaying properly in the Menu. The values in-game are true to the table above.

Twitch’s Shock Drone Ammo
We reduced the max ammo for each Shock Drone to 5 (from 15).
Game Designer notes: Twitch right now is too strong. There are several possible reasons, one of them being that her drones have the potential to deny an unreasonable amount of electronics from defenders. We feel that this change will force players to start making choices about when to shoot or to save their ammo, and which Defender gadgets to destroy.

Bandit’s barbed wire
Bandit will now have two barbed wire (down from 3).
Game Designer notes: Even if Ela has eclipsed Bandit’s pick rate, players still pick him too often. Reducing the number of barbed wires he has should bring him more in line with other Defenders.

Lesion’s Gu Mine refill timer
We lowered Lesion’s Gu Mine refill timer to 30 sec (from 35).
Game Designer notes: Lesion is in an OK place right now, but could use a slight buff. By reducing the refill timer, it will encourage his specific playstyle of staying alive as long as possible to increase the strength of his defensive gadget.

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

Temporal Filtering
The T-AA has been fully implemented. As part of this, the Resolution Scaling and Sharpness Factor slide bars are in the Options menu.
With render scaling, you will be able to customize the ratio between render resolution and display resolution, which will allow you to maintain your target framerate. For example:


Bomb UI Changes
We changed the player markers for players that are interacting with the Defuser. When a teammate is interacting with the Defuser, a new animation icon appears on the player. If your teammate is in the process of disabling the Defuser, you will also notice a new animated icon on that player. The new animated icon should make it easier to identify which teammate is currently interacting with the Defuser.
Additionally, once the teammate plants the Defuser, the progress of the Defuser replaces the round timer.
These are the first steps we are taking towards improving the Bomb game mode, and we will have more information about our next steps at the Six Invitational!

Caster Camera improvements
We will be making some adjustments to the Caster Camera. These adjustments will improve the viewer experience for those watching the spectator camera, but also provide them with more information in a more digestible format.
You can see a screenshot of the new UI here:

« Last post by Potzo on Nov 1, 2017, 13:21:56 »


We're mostly interested in State of Decay 2 (10:33), while GTFO (13:26) and Anthem (15:26) also look very promising. We played Warhammer:End Times couple of months back and it was quite fun in coop, so the new one (1:00) should be even better. Overall a pretty nice roundup for 2018.
