Update:  Hardcore Scrapped! due to only working correctly on the 1st map on rotation, after that it just goes back to normal.  Apparently the Devs have known about this issue for several months and still haven't got it working properly.

I've decided to give the new Hardcore mode a try.  This is because we have so many players come on to our server and just run straight to the point for score and kills.

I've already changed the server and wil leave it running up until Sunday the 21st so that we can all see how it goes.

Before anyone starts to moan about the change, please let's give it a try, before we do.

New Weapons added: QBZ-97 (Security) and QTS-11 (Insurgents)

There are two new medium caliber assault rifles available for Rifleman, Demolitions, Commander, and Observer classes: the QBZ-97 for Insurgents at 3 supply points, and the QTS-11 for Security at 4 supply points.

QTS-11

The QBZ-97 is an effective bullpup 5.56 caliber option for the Insurgent team at an affordable cost, putting rounds out a little faster than an AKM. The QTS-11 is an advanced special operations rifle with an integrated bolt-action grenade launcher, and fires flatter than an AUG A3 with its lower recoil and slower fire rate.

Removal of Competitive
With 1.9.1, we’ve decided to remove Competitive official ranked matchmaking from the Play menu. We understand that this change could be upsetting to our competitive players, but we feel this is what’s best for the game going forward. Competitive matchmaking suffered from extremely low player participation, with players often struggling to even find a match. This is especially a problem for us because it means new players who decide to try a competitive experience on boot up will essentially be stuck, confused, and annoyed. We need to ensure any new player in our community gets quick and easy access to much stronger experiences like those found in Versus, Co-op, or community servers. We want every gameplay experience in Sandstorm to meet a certain standard, and Competitive was not up to that standard.

For the next two weeks our regular limited time playlist will be a modified version of Competitive Firefight. Modifications include normal Versus Firefight classes and normal supply costs for weapons and equipment. Other rules seen previously in Competitive Firefight like faster objective capture, shorter rounds, and 5 v 5 players are still the same.

Game Stats Improvements
We will be revamping the Stats section of the main menu to streamline the way we collect game statistics. New end of round screens have been implemented, and backend logic has been revamped to ensure XP and cosmetic rewards are correctly earned. As a part of this effort, the Weapons section will need to be removed in this update and reimplemented in a future update. Your game stats will still continue to be collected, however the UI to display the information will be missing temporarily. When we reimplement the Weapons and Achievements sections, all stats you have earned since before and after this update will still be seen. These sub menus just need to disappear for a little while as we rework our system, with no actual loss of data. We apologize for any inconvenience or disruption this may cause.

Here are the list of changes:
Replays are now found in Stats > History instead of Replays in the Main Menu
Improved end of round screen by adding match history and statistics at the end of every round


Gameplay Improvements
Added night equipment to the Firing Range


UI Improvements
Updated the Main Menu to improve the presentation of the 1.9 update

Below is the latest from the Developers on the game.


"We are aware there are some issues that have popped up with 1.8 being rolled out and played by all of you.

The first hotfix we roll out will fix issues with the Urban Warden DLC’s police badge not appearing and the weapon skin for the ACE 52 not appearing properly. We understand you are not getting the product you thought you were paying for, so that will be fixed ASAP.

We are also hard at work on a second hotfix, prioritizing bugs that affect gameplay.

The most critical issue we have seen is an issue when loading into Tell. For now, we have a workaround for anyone suffering from this problem. If you use -DisableModSubscriptions as a launch parameter this should solve the issue.

Other issues such as the incorrect objective showing after a team switch, hands obscuring optics, and smoke showing as cubes and not as smoke are also being worked on.

Thank you for your patience while we fix these problems, test them, and roll them out to you".


Hopefully the part with hands obscuring optics may fix the issue that Boycie has with his invisible gun (may help, may not).
