PTR Test 7/11/2020

New Content and Features

• Self-Interrupt keybind is now bound to ESCAPE. Usable while rooted and non-punishing, meaning you can interrupt yourself any time to not incur a GCD (so if a Silencing Shot is flying at you, can interrupt yourself and re-cast if done very quickly). Self-interrupting also provides a quick little error sound.

• Spell values on tooltips now dynamically update when changing gear.

• Options -> keybinds have been remastered and polished. There are now keybinds for Self Interrupt (default T) and Meditate (default Z).

• Updated the play panels to include Ascension and a Ranked team mode (coming soon).

• Movement will no longer get ‘stuck’ when hard CC’d and key still pressed. Holding down a movement key (or mouse) and getting Crowd Controlled will no longer require you to re-press the key (or mouse). This was a clunky interaction that has been polished, so if you are holding down a movement key -> get rooted -> you will run in the direction when the root expires. Likewise, if you try to move while rooted you will immediately start running in that direction when the root expires.

• Hostile Area of Effect zones now have a red color tint on them to make them more distinguishable from ally abilities.

• Interrupts are now displayed on scrolling combat text.

• During post-game, TAB is now the keybind to toggle scoreboard instead of HOME.

• Added collision to the horizontal edges of all arenas so players can no longer ‘hide’ half of their character model off screen.

• Starter gear will now persist on new characters.

• New characters will now join the world channel.

• You can now delete your characters in the character panel.

• Intro cinematic now always shows allies first then enemies instead of the left team first every time.

• Auras no longer persist through death.

• You can no longer target dead players.

• Added a Connection Interrupted dialog when there is a network loss.

• Added a success feedback dialog when creating an account.

• Opening the Character Panel now also opens your Inventory simultaneously.

• Items not reserved to you now are more faded out. Some new players were confused about attempting to pick items that belonged to another player. (Before & After picture below)

• Control + A for Select all, Control + C for copy, etc. are all functional in the lobby chat now.

• Game channel has been renamed to Party in the Lobby, which is more accurate and should be more helpful for new players.

• Pressing ENTER in-game now always defaults to Party chat.

• Pressing SHIFT+ENTER in-game now always defaults to Say chat.

• Fame levels now display accurate dynamic information.
