System

Hide nickname

You can now choose to ‘hide nickname’ so other players will see a temporary nickname instead

  • The temporary nickname will appear as “Test Subject 1”, “Test Subject 2”, etc.
  • When your character dies, both your real nickname and your temporary nickname will appear in the final screen.

Matchmaking & LP

Before introducing Ranked mode, we’re planning to run some tests on matchmaking.

  • Increased the LP weight given to player kills in Solo mode. We hope this entices solo players to pick more strategic fights in different situations.
  • LP changes can affect particular characters, and LP is an important factor in making character balance adjustments, so we will monitor it and adjust accordingly.
  • LP penalties for duo and squad teams have been slightly lowered.

Matching Complete!

  • After finding a match, Eternal Return will pop to the front of your screen so you never miss a queue! Edit: Removed due to bug
  • Also, the taskbar icon will blink.

Handling improvement

  • Casting abilities no longer cancels movement instructions.
  • Movement while using skills has been optimized to be smoother.

Optimization

  • We’re continuing to focus on the improvement of in-game character resources (mesh, textures, models, animations).
  • Previously we did some tweaks to Isol — this time we’ll be looking at Magnus.
  • The load on resource-optimized characters is reduced, so the overall load will be reduced as more characters are added.

Shortcuts

  • Shortcut [P] – Can now toggle route lists edited beforehand in game.
