After two weeks out in the wild, TOXIKK gets its second update. All hail 1.0.2 Vanilla, the update to finally transcend TOXIKK into an entity of pure light and love. Let’s take a look at what we did here:
01 – SKILL CLASS (SC) SYSTEM LIBERATED
The Skill Class (SC) based matchmaking system was liberated a lot. Instead of grouping various SC ranges into individual groups, SC matchmaking is now primarily used to distinguish between “A league” (SC 8-12) and “B league” (SC 1-7). Furthermore, even this last restriction can be overruled, if a player disables “SC Matchmaking” in the newly added Quick Join preferences (see below).
02 – NEW QUICK JOIN PREFERENCE: SC MATCHMAKING
SC (Skill Class) based matchmaking can now be deactivated in the Quick Join options. Simply go Multiplayer -> Quick Join to toggle SC matchmaking on or off (it’s on by default). WARNING: Disabling SC restrictions will send you to servers open to all Skill Classes. Prepare to get destroyed by veteran AFPS players. You can turn SC based matchmaking on again, whenever you feel like you had enough of being stomped on.
03 – NEW QUICK JOIN PREFERENCE: FRIENDS ONLY
This is primarily interesting for Free Editions players: You can now force the client to primarily look for servers with friends. However, it is important that your friends either play on a server of your skill class range (if you have SC matchmaking enabled) or play on servers without SC restrictions.
04 – ROCKET LAUNCHER: SPLASH DAMAGE RADIUS REDUCED
We heard you. Though, please be aware that the Cerberus is intentionally a strong weapon (pretty much like in many old-school APFS titles the RL was slightly (read: heavily) overpowered). We already nerfed it a LOT since the first Early Access days, where it was OP to an almost ridiculous level. With all …read more
