Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

There was no State of the Game last week due to members of our team being away. Community Developer Petter Mårtensson is back this week to give general updates on PTS3 and Rogue 2.0.

If you missed the stream, you check out the VoD below.

The 1.8 PTS is ending on Tuesday, October 31. With all the verification processes involved, there will not be a PTS Phase 3 on consoles.

Rogue 2.0 is staying relatively the same when it hits the live servers. Of course, the system is still open to tweaks as we move forward. However, we are currently investigating the length of the initial Rogue Timer as well as the Time To Kill in PVP.

Classified Striker’s alongside Classified Nomad will also remain relatively unchanged when Update 1.8 goes live. In terms of Classified Predator’s Mark, we believe the set is in a solid place PVE-wise. In addition, the Ballistic Shield skill will not be adjusted more before the release of Update 1.8. With all that being said, we will be keeping a close eye on the meta for all sets.

WSP Alerts are being adjusted for both solo and group players. We will have more information for everyone as soon as possible.

The PTS changes to Global Event Tokens earned when completing Amherst’s, Lexington, and Clear Sky have been reverted. Players can expect the GE Tokens earned from these activities to return to normal.

While certain Commendations for the next Global Event are tied to DLC, the mask/patch rewards will not be tied to these Commendations. Players will be able to earn the next rotation of masks without owning any DLC.

Again, the 1.8 PTS ends on October 31 with no PTS3 on consoles.

There was a miscommunication regarding a special Halloween event next week. To clarify, next week’s event is a Double Field Profiency Caches Event.
