A first look at the game changing UI.

Thank you so much to all the players who took part in our testing.  We had 81 players who put having fun on hold to make sure we could test the new match system.

As they can all attest, this was hardcore testing with 351 separate queues recorded. That’s 216 pilots and 398 gunners and engineers.

On a positive note the matchmaker took an average of 17 seconds to put a player into lobby even when there was only a max of 30 players in queue at one time.

Follow the jump to see what was tested and what’s changing! Continue reading

Behold the newest decoration being made for your ship.

Friday, normally the most exciting day is being usurped by Satuday this week. Saturday we are testing the new match system. What makes this testing so much more exciting than the last one? Your feedback. After we heard what players had to say about the old system we thought long and hard about making a system that fits the community spirit and matches the amazing and social players we have. Tomorrow we are excited to unveil this new system to you in the dev app and once again listen to all the amazing feedback you have for us.
Testing will occur at 5 pm eastern, 9 pm GMT, June 28th on the Dev app.

If you do not have access to the Dev app please click anywhere in this paragraph and fill out the forum. The only required part is your email so we can give you a code and the times for the event.

As always we’ll be talking about these new developments live with everyone at 3 pm eastern, 7 pm gmt. Join us as twitch.tv/gunsoficarus

As always after the jump you’ll find what the team has been working on. Continue reading
