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!

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #8 Legacy

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Winning the Game

In Empires, you are building your nation so that it endures the passage of time, and your achievement is measured through the legacy you’ll leave, even if in the end, your nation is no more.

There are several ways to achieve this goal of being first in Legacy. It’s not just something to be only achieved by conquering part of the map, although that approach remains a possibility, rest assured.

If you take a military approach, then you’ll want to plan your campaigns so that you conquer and hold your objective regions. These regions are set for each nation and represent loosely their historical progress or areas of interest. Some nations will have objectives set in a concentric way, around their capital, so they will expand outward in each direction.

Armored Brigade first Nation Pack is announced! With a free surprise!

The Cold War is cold no more. NATO countries are facing their Warsaw Pact counterparts right in the middle of Europe, furiously fighting to control the Fulda-Gap and close key-locations.

But Germany is not the only European Front where the Soviet High Command is looking to overcome the West resistance.

On the south, a century-old hot border is ready to erupt into fire. Yugoslavia, although not a “Soviet” state, is willing to take advantage of the chaos in which the totality of Western Nations has been embroiled. Their eyes run along the Italian border and the important port of Trieste, the acquisition of which could be of immense value for its economy. The JNA (Yugoslav People's Army) is equipped with hardware of high efficiency and it is not afraid to use it on its old enemy.
