sorry, but i have one more unrelated question, if you don't mind
are rings pre-determined? if so, do you have a ballpark number of possibilities? do ranked/unranked get the same ring combos?
i've started taking screenshots and have 14 rings...just don't want to waste my time if it's truly random
It's random, but there are some validity checks on the final locations, meaning there are some places that the ring can't end.
is loot in ranked any different than normal mode?
Your concept of bad isnt relevant.
The only way we will know if plat is average or not, (or way above average) is numbers that Respawn will need to provide us.
Doing math in these scenarios is usually filled with horrible assumptions.
What numbers do you need? The RP system works exactly as shown in game, and you’re matched based on it.
Aww shucks, I'm blushing
Incredible work! <3_<3
No anti-cheat updates or what
Anti-cheat updates will most of the time come in server or weekly updates. We push server changes multiple times a week for issues like cheats, error tracking, etc, but there's not always anything particularly interesting to publicly say about them.
You need to address low level bronze aimbotters queuing with platinum/diamond squads as boost service. Ban the whole parties.
Players obviously partying with cheaters share the banned life.
Is loot distribution also determined by the number of players landing in a given location? It feels like skulltown loot is crazy when multiple groups land there and less than lackluster if it’s just 1 or 2 squads.
Nope, loot is determined before players even drop
Client patch starting to roll out all platforms this morning and you'll need to download and update your client. Below are the issues addressed:
Not sure if this was added at some point without me being aware. But is there a way to report a cheater in the situation where you get second place to a person that's cheating when they become champion?
Something like a "players met" list from the game you just played would be nice for the situations where you can't spectate the person to report them in-game.
Not currently, but I'll see what we can do
@ksson85 I can see the Bangalore and Wattson skins on your account on my end, can you check your Rare quality skins again?
No joke can confirm that the giant space cows aka Leviathans go by the following names: Lola and Rosie
What was the reasoning behind this choice? Is it just easier to maintain?
Generally, players will do whatever they can to gain advantage. If their actions can influence, for example, the contents of a loot bin, they'll do so. e.g. if a lot bin was more likely to contain armor if you don't have any armor, some players would start removing their grey/blue armor before opening loot bins.
That photo of Josh, ha!
u/RSPN_Jeremy thinking of your tin foil hat comments while making this one
oh my gawd I love it! I can see Mirage with a massive tinfoil hat. We'll have to do a conspiracy skin in time for the area 51 raid XD
In your first response you were on Windows 10 build 1903 and now in the DxDiag you're on the latest version, so maybe there were some updates that were in the process of being installed that eventually finished.
Glad it's working now though, see you in Kings Canyon!
u/Scriptacus: I read that loot distribution is different when we're not playing with a full squad. Is it true? Does it apply only to 1+1+1 matches or also to 2+1 ones?
Thanks a lot!
EDIT: So... Are loot distributed according to a fixed percentage or according to probabilities?
I guess what I'm asking is... Are we guaranteed to have at least one of each item during a match? cc u/Scriptacus
Loot distribution does not dynamically change.
