This patch mostly features combat changes for improved readability as well as some other bugfixes.

Patch #12 Changelog 27/09/2019

Gameplay

  • Fixed invasion spawn values being different from Frontline: Player spawn 5->15, Ballista 30->180, Cata 30->180, Horse 30->120
  • Added destroyable trees to taiga that act as bridges and environment traps
  • Adjusted spawns on camp to favor first objective for attackers a bit
  • Added another burnable house to the camp on taiga to make defending a bit easier
  • Updated mod.io plugin (Linux server crash fix)
  • Fix for mod downloads being skipped
  • Potential fix for auth ticket error
  • Fix for failing community server reward drops

Combat

  • Miss combos no longer have lunge
  • Ripostes can now chamber, their chamber window is the entirety of the windup (chamber restrictions/sides still apply)
  • Riposte clashes will now overpower regular strikes
  • Flesh wound now sets stamina to 0 when it triggers
  • Flesh wound point cost reduced to 2
  • Blocking horse rider couch/joust no longer ragdolls
  • Adjusted regular strike release curve - now looks better and more readable
  • Riposte strikes now have their own release curve, which is linear - this fixes the stutter in the early release transition periods and makes them more readable

Visuals & Misc

  • Fixed a spawn protection box that poked through the ceiling on INV_Grad
  • TeamFlinch is now a server variable (same place as teamdamage is set, TeamDamageFlinch = 1 to enable) which will cause team hits to flinch teammates. Disabled by default.
  • Riposte stabs no longer angle (always straight), they also no longer let you choose the side of the stab, the side chosen is inherent in the parry side, which forces stabs to use the more readable (flip-around) animation, fixing cases of "jpeg stabs"
  • Strike->stab morphs will now force the stab to use the same angle as the strike, making the action more natural looking and less snappy
  • Attack turn compensation is now enabled in all directions (previously depended on angle, e.g. horizontals had no up-down compensation, and overheads had no left-right compensation). - this will make certain cases more readable and no longer instant hit

Invasion & Mod support

With this update, we are shipping the Invasion game mode on three existing maps: Grad, Taiga and Camp. Invasion is an epic, asymmetric, objective-based mode where one team defends and the other attacks. The remaining maps will be adapted for Invasion in the future, including the two new maps we’re working on - Feitoria and Castello.
Also featured in this update is automatic mod (map) download when connecting to a modded server. This is only the first step in mod support for MORDHAU, as the official SDK is not ready yet, although our resourceful community has managed to make maps regardless.

Stay tuned for more updates in the near future, Feitoria is just about ready for release!

Patch #11 Changelog 10/09/2019

Gameplay

  • Added a whole new asymmetric objective-based mode called Invasion. Currently available on Grad, Taiga and Camp. Mixed in with existing Frontline rotation on official servers.
  • Added automatic mod (map) download on connect and mod.io integration (workshop)
  • Server owners can specify their https://mordhau.mod.io/ auth token in the ServerModAuthToken field in Game.ini which they get from mod.io. Any mods subscribed by the mod.io user will be automatically downloaded & updated by the server on startup.
  • Reduced waiting for player time in duel from 120s to 90s
  • Fixed kill credits being assigned to teammates for teamdamage (e.g, even if the enemy suicided or died otherwise) causing a teamkill
  • Players on vehicles now count for pushing in push objectives (e.g. horses etc)
  • Getting auto-kickbanned for teamkilling (5 TKs) no longer applies a global matchmaking ban of 30 minutes, it now only bans you from that server for 30 minutes.

Combat

  • Adjusted axe head bonus stamina drain vs shields to be slightly weaker
  • Held block shields global stam negation increased by 1
  • Held block shields block turncap slightly less strict
  • Reverted Horde changes from last patch except for the projectile damage change
  • Horse respawn time increased to 2 minutes
  • Spinning in the opposite direction and trying to “backswing” will no longer work, now causes glancing blow

Weapons & Equipment

  • Eveningstar main mode strike combo slowed down 25ms

Visuals & Misc

  • Made thrown weapon trail a bit less squiggly
  • Fixed perma ban message showing when trying to search for a match after a temp ban expired
  • Fixed inventory not refreshing between matches when staying on the same server
  • Medium horse now gets random colors and patterns assigned on spawn, and will assume team colors when mounted in a team mode.

UI

  • Polish on objective icons look and feel
  • There’s now a fixed amount of closest objective icons that show up, preventing too much clutter
  • Objective icons now display in the map spawn screen
  • Added mute, unmute, mutelist commands for server admins; prevents players from sending chat messages; global on official servers
  • Banlist command now includes globally banned players on official servers
  • Fixed profanity filter not applying when checked (having to be re-checked)
  • Synced up duel UI countdown better with the server
  • Fixed top rank next icon breaking in duel

Patch #04 Changelog: 08/05/2019

With this patch, we are rolling out the gold compensation for our rocky launch. It comes in the form of 10K gold, and you can choose to accept or decline it when you launch the game. We have no way to know who was affected, so it is extended to all current players. This is a one time thing. If you decline it, it's gone. You will be able to claim this compensation until (including) Sunday UTC.

Networking

  • Matchmaking improvements
  • Joining a server will now reserve a slot in advance, fixing the issue of being booted after loading.
    Server owners will have to make sure that the beacon port (15000) is reachable; it can be overridden on the command line with BeaconPort=<port>

Maps & Gamemodes

  • Fixed players being able to get out of bounds on Mountain Peak
  • Fixed some icicles not dropping on Mountain Peak
  • Weapons/projectiles no longer collide with bounds on certain maps

Visuals & Misc.

  • Fixed spectators being kicked for AFK even when moving
  • Fixed fire kills not being tracked
  • Fixed pyromaniac achievement not working
  • Fixed Whack A Mole achievement
  • Fixed couched head kills not being tracked
  • Potential fix for a rare(?) crash (could also crash the server)
  • Added m.ThirdPersonDeathCamera by default it is disabled, added it to settings as well. Does what it says, forces 3p camera on death. Can help for people who get motion sick.

Audio

  • Increased volume of human footsteps and horse galloping, increasing sound awareness
  • Catapult & Ballista firing sounds can now be heard from further away, increasing awareness
  • Fixed horn on camp being too loud at certain times
  • Increased volume of low stamina breathing and made it more even across voice sets, making it easier to notice in fights
  • Lute is now louder

UI

  • Added friend UI marker - can be toggled with H, in the options or m.friendlymarker console command. Has 3 states (friends & party, all teammates and off).
  • Frontline spawn screen now shows friends and party members as orange dots
  • Added “Show Killed By” toggle in the options or m.ShowKilledBy, can be used to turn off the killed by panel
  • Tutorial reward message on main menu now hidden when it is completed

It's been one hell of a ride thus far, and it's only been 7 days. None of us would've expected this reception in our wildest dreams.
As of today MORDHAU has sold just shy of 500.000 copies and we have reached a peak of 60.000 concurrent players yesterday. These are just mindblowing numbers to us, and we still haven't fully realized that MORDHAU is currently among the top played games on Steam.

Unfortunately the launch wasn't as smooth as we had hoped. Server performance was abysmal and reward drops such as Gold and XP, as well as unlocks were not functioning properly. We are still in the process of seting up new servers in regions that need them and as a result the Matchmaking can still be spotty. There's also some other Matchmaking related bugs that prevent parties from joining the same game, or BR lobbies to populate very slowly, but we're on top of that. All things considered, the majority of launch issues have been resolved. As for compensation of the lost Gold and XP. We have not forgotten about it and will be shipping it via the next patch.

Right now we are addressing some of the more frequent and critical issues, like the "Ghost Bug" among others, as well as some map exploits. These past few days had been very hectic for us, but things are starting to somewhat get back in order.

Looking ahead for future updates, we've got a couple new maps in mid-production: Castello and Feitoria. Here's a few impressions on the latter.

On top of that we will start looking into Ranked/Competitive modes, starting with duels. However we cannot give an exact timeframe on when you can expect these updates to be rolled out yet. We are terrible when it comes to estimating things, I'm sure our alpha players can attest to that.

Additionally we will keep adding new armor pieces and weapon skins here and there, as well as some new character customization options.
Goals further down the line would be to release Modding Tools, as a lot of you seem to be very eager to create some custom content.

We've got lots of ideas for improvements to the maps and gamemodes. There's also been some amazing feedback and suggestions coming from you guys. When it comes to balancing and tweaking of mechanics, we are pretty happy with how things are looking right now, but we will start tweaking some things soon.

In closing we'll take this opportunity to give some shout-outs.

Thank you

  • to all the Kickstarter backers and alpha testers. Without your constant feedback, suggestions and nitpicking the game would not be where it is now.
  • to G-Portal/zeuz and their amazing support. You guys were super helpful and assisted us a bunch to keep up with our launch woes.
  • to all community server hosts. You really saved our asses to provide servers for all these players while we were struggling to spin up our own.
  • to our promotional launch re-stream: You guys knocked it out of the park and delivered some sweet first impressions right on the storefront.
  • to all the content creators out there creating videos and streaming. MORDHAU spread like a wildfire, which wouldn't have been possible without you.

Will those armory poses be usable as extended taunts, like the squat?

We might add some of them as emotes in the future.

They are serviceable right now but have been in a broken state since forever.
The attack code is broken causing them to gamble pretty much all the time. On top of that they're currently also unable to FTP which is why they're so easily beaten in 1v1.

EDIT: The behavior profiles used were also not changed since the Kickstarter videos, where we needed brainless fodder. Resulting in them not creating any space whatsoever.

Very low priority right now so can't give you an ETA. They have to take the backseat for more important stuff.

This does not apply to other players.

This is by design to hide the first person t-rex animations of your own character.

It's been a while! In fact more than two months.

A lot has happened in this draught of updates and there were various reasons why we couldn't release some of the new features right away in smaller patches.
Mordhau is a game that consists of many different small systems and they all need to run in sync like a well oiled machine. If just one of its "gears" changes a little bit, all of the others have to be tweaked as well, resulting in a lot of headaches for us.
Couple that with some deeper refactoring of some old code, this can become a lenghty but very needed process.

That said we're very happy with the current state of the melee combat, and thus will finally shift more of our focus towards content creation. Granted we will still tweak things here and there as needed, especially since there's been a lot of drastic changes in this patch.

We've also heard your pleas for more transparency and will try to adhere to it, thus we're releasing a small roadmap to give you a rough idea on where the game is headed in the next few weeks and months until beta and release. We'll also shift more of our communication back to the forums so all info can be gathered and archived in one place instead of having to catch glimpses and little tidbits on Discord or Reddit.

To sum things up, here's a list of the biggest changes and improvements in Patch #14:

  • Upgraded the engine, bringing a vast array of improvements in visual quality as well as optimization and significantly improved load times.

  • Fixed long running and infuriating bugs like getting locked out of spawning, or crashes caused by alt-tabbing during loading screens.

  • Polished a lot of animations and visual effects.

  • Tweaked mechanics, balance and timings to create a more unique feel to our arsenal as well as more defined roles.

  • Reworked lighting and post processing to ensure better readability while retaining a high dynamic range and fidelity.

  • Netcode improvements to deliver a smoother experience on a wider ping range than before.

  • A lot of groundwork for the main gamemode Frontline, as well as ranged weaponry, support equipment and vehicles.

  • Some new weapons and gear, who would've thought?

1) We're changing the way we handle map bounds, so spectators will be able to leave the playspace a little further on some maps like Grad.

2) We'll force the watermark for the remainder of Alpha/Beta to ensure a clear distinction between older footage from media captured after release.

3) There is no surefire way to turn off all lodding at once, but there's a couple console variables to help you with this. r.HLOD 0 will disable all hierarchical LODs (these are the blurry ones). Set r.StaticMeshLODDistanceScale to something like 0.1 to force Static Meshes to LOD0. Setting r.SkeletalMeshLODBias to a negative value will force lower LODs on characters. Lastly setting r.ViewDistanceScale to some higher number like 5 will cause foliage and other smaller meshes to render further.

Keep in mind that these settings are not intended for live play as they will severely harm your performance.

How the fuck.

EDIT: Alright, alright, I fucked up some blocking volumes the other day, so now I know how you get up. Enjoy it while you still can. But just to make sure, can you PM me those 3 spots you can get up?
