Ranked play is live in PTE 74358 [UPDATED]

PTE 74358-main has gone live and jables has the details for us. It’s available through both the Uber launcher (switch to the PTE build) and Steam (opt-in to the PTE beta).

Please be sure to disable PA Stats while using this build as it produces broken data.

We’re adding known issues as they’re identified.

New

  • Ranked with Matchmaking!
    • 1v1 ranked lobbies
    • Matchmaking
    • Unranked badge for use during preliminary matches
    • After 5 games, Ranks: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Uber (with unique badges for each)
    • New UI flow to support Ranked gameplay
    • Improved region selection dialog
  • 4 new Custom Commanders
    • Following are newly available for purchase (see below for images)
      • Chronoblip (I believe new since last update)
      • Diremachine
      • Stickman9000

Chronoblip Diremachine Stickman

Improved

  • Server Browser shows modded as well as unmodded games by default
  • System import/export (save and load systems that others have created, allowing sharing)
  • Added tabs and work on redesign of System Editor
  • ChronoCam Time bar alerts now use team color when available
  • Added missing loc throughout the UI (still work in progress)
  • Metal planet pole cap and platform mapping improvements
  • Custom Commander texture work for one of our not for sale commanders

Bugfixes

  • Bugfix that was causing servers to hang
  • Random bug fixes for perf and crashing
  • Toggling fullscreen via alt+enter now correctly updates the full screen setting

Known issues

  • Rank updates can take a bit to update
  • There is no notification sound if you happened to be tabbed away when game is ready
  • Will be doing a pass on systems being used for 1v1
  • Game count is currently broken
  • Right now the update to your rank can be delayed. At the end of a game the rank you see is often the rank you started the game with and not your new rank. Even after you return to the main menu it might still show the old rank. This is something being worked on.

Update

74416-main has been pushed to PTE. It includes:

  • A number of additional server crash fixes
  • Update to localization tags that were showing up
  • Gaf system has been removed from 1v1 Matchmaking
  • Removed Game Count / Players in Game stats
  • Fix for building MEXs over MEXs
  • Added a re-queue button to the end of matches and make sure provisional ranking status shows up the first time you play as well
