Back to News Listing BSG Deadlock: Dev Diary #5 - The Cost of War

Posted: Monday, March 26, 2018 by Matrix Support

Type: News

Attention, nuggets! We’ve got fresh intel straight from SIGINT that you might want to cast your eyes over.
 
Instead of a broad overview of the forthcoming update, today we want to deep-dive into a new feature coming soon to Deadlock. You can find a quick preview down below, while you can click HERE for the whole Dev Diary.

Persistent Damage.
The next time you start up a new campaign of Deadlock with the soon-to-be-released patch, you’ll notice some new features. One of these, as we alluded to in our previous Dev Diary #4 - Wear & Tear, is the concept of persistent damage.

Repairing the Damage.
With the new Persistent Damage system, any capital ship that takes damage to armour or hull will have that damage carry over to the next battle if left unrepaired. Luckily for us, Colonial Fleet has one of the most effective mobile shipyards at its disposal.
 
Hardship Builds Character
As an optional feature for all new campaigns, Persistent Damage adds a new strategic element to the Deadlock campaign. But it’s about more than just keeping your ships afloat.
With this new persistency between battles, you will also be given more historical data about each unit’s performance. Confirmed kills will be recorded, as will each of the missions the unit has partaken in. This will help communicate the veterancy of your ships as you continue your story of Colonial Fleet during the First Cylon War.
 

We’re really looking forward to the release of this new feature with the next update, along with a whole swathe of bugfixes and balancing updates. In the meantime, keep the torpedoes and bullets flying! So say we all!

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #10 'Hostile Environments'

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

I cant do that, Lucinda. You understand why I need you here.

Arthur McKennelly was sincere, soft, and perhaps the only person in the Admiralty Lucinda Cain could foster a kind thought for. He strolled the hallways of Daidalos like a kindly uncle, sharing smiles and half salutes to the personnel they passed. Even the overbearing presence of Ragnars storm clouds couldnt shake his good nature. Cain wanted nothing more right now than to knock him to the floor. One right hook ought to do it.

Tell me where Sarkis is,she said.

Command LIVE: Kuril Sunrise announced

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

An almost forgotten conflict is on the brink of erupting dramatically. The dispute over the Kuril Islands, claimed by the Japanese but held by Moscow since the end of WWII, is turning hot again thanks to an increased presence of nationalists and populists on both governments.

The JGSDF has traditionally been concentrated in Hokkaido already, but airborne and amphibious units have moved there, ostensibly for exercises.
