4s this is your man from the land of the
6s long white cloud ron plays games and i'm
9s going to be bringing you this week's
10s recap
17s [Music]
31s yeah right okay this isn't uh it's not
33s going too well for me here perhaps i'll
35s do a little better at one of the new
36s last man standing modes that have just
38s been added while you're in the lobby
40s area once lisa's introduced you to the
41s game you'll see the new settings button
43s on your head up display it'll open up a
45s menu allowing you to choose preferred
47s game mode there's a zirca build with
48s level 75 attack and 45 defense or the 1d
52s pure build with level 75 attack and one
54s defense when it's time for the action to
56s begin it'll have to choose one of the
58s modes for the game it'll do this by
60s looking at the preferences of the
61s waiting players for example if most of
63s the waiting players had circa as their
65s preferred mode a few preferred mac slash
68s med and only one guy who chooses the 1d
71s pure the game would have a high chance
74s of picking circa a medium chance of
76s picking max mid and a tiny little chance
78s of picking the 1d pure last man sounding
80s can still pick a random mode for a game
82s regardless of the preferences so that
84s there's more variety and so that big
86s groups or pesky bots won't skew it too
88s heavily you'll see the game mode
90s announced as you arrive in the battle
91s arena the countdown duration has been
93s increased so you'll have a little more
95s time to react now that you've got three
97s different modes to prepare for
98s you'll want to set up your loadouts hop
100s over to the supply chain and lobby to
102s configure them make sure to give the
103s team a bell as well if you've got any
105s suggestions for other items that could
106s be included in the loadout there's also
108s the new ability to choose a spellbook if
111s your loadout for a game mode includes
112s the rune pouch it'll enable a selection
115s of smells from whichever spell you
116s selected for the mode
118s standard was third spells and entangle
120s you've got ancient with ice and blood
122s blitz and brush and then lastly luna
124s with vengeance and qme these aren't the
126s only game modes that players have
128s requested for lms and there have been
130s some pretty interesting suggestions for
131s what else could be added in the future
133s such as a mode with no protect prayers
135s at all so make sure you keep pestering
137s the team with ideas the default spell
139s book for the new modes will be ancient
141s this may be changed in the future based
143s on feedback however please note you can
145s also change between spellbooks freely if
148s there is a different option you prefer
150s lunar spells will remain available to 1d
152s viewers as this is the case in the pvp
154s arena this week the three protect
156s prayers have been made more effective
158s damage is now reduced to 30 percent up
160s from 60
161s so if you got whacked for what should be
163s 100 damage you'll take 30 damage instead
166s of 60 with the correct ram
168s this is an experimental change designed
170s to reward players who've taken the time
172s to develop their switching skills
174s we're open to reverting the changes or
176s rebalancing the buff and we'll be
178s monitoring feedback closely in the days
180s following the update the yellow
182s notifications on the head up display
183s should no longer overlap with the buff
185s bar and the clients
187s the bath bar should also stop showing
189s the minigames ammo after you've left the
191s battle arena
192s and although the suppliers in the last
193s man standing look pretty tasty you
195s probably didn't need warnings saying
197s that item's valuable are you sure
199s whenever you try to drop some on the
201s floor
202s those warnings have been suppressed
203s inside the mini-game now and the dark
205s rock map the starting positions for
207s players have been updated
208s the game now uses pairs of spawn points
210s rather than clumps of six making it a
213s little more how the original desert
214s island map spawns its fighters
217s also in the dark rock map loot crates
219s won our tennis spawn close to the final
221s safe zone it's such a large map that
223s they were often spawning in areas that
225s the fog had already just reached loot
227s chairs and crates will now check what
229s items you already have when deciding
230s what to give you no more aimless verbal
232s abuse and profit stitch ups as you get
234s your third pair of dragon claws the loot
236s chests and crates have some additions
237s too you can find an exact list of what
240s items by clicking the link back to the
241s original news post in the description
243s below there have been some further pvp
245s changes this week some unintended
247s behavior has been fixed for npcs for
250s initiating the pj timer this unintended
252s behavior meant that an npc hitting or
254s attacking a player would prevent that
256s player from being attacked for 12
258s seconds
259s this was causing players to karate chop
261s their keyboards out of frustration in
263s both pvp and pvm scenarios in pvp this
266s behavior meant that an npc hitting a
268s player once in a single way combat zone
270s would give the player 12 seconds of
272s immunity and therefore guarantee a
274s cheeky log out while this is a fix for
276s unintended behaviors we hope these
278s examples give players all the
280s information they need to make sure any
282s would-be escapes aren't cut short by
284s this fixed in pvm this behavior meant
286s that npc a
287s hitting a player once and then getting
289s trapped behind the environment such as
291s rocks
292s or other npcs would prevent npc b from
295s attacking the player for 12 seconds
297s these behaviors have been changed for
299s npcs to better reflect their mechanics
301s before this change players attempting to
303s teleport from the revenant caves while
305s attacking the npcs there will now have
307s to wait about 1.2 seconds for the
309s teleport spells to begin
311s this means no more cheeky teleporting to
312s safety as soon as you see a little white
314s dot appear on your minimap the pvp rotor
316s has also been moved to period b
318s which means the pvp world is uk based on
321s world 560. the high risk pvp world is us
324s based on world 579
326s the free-to-play pvp world is uk based
328s on world 561
330s and the competitive lms world has
332s switched to world 580 which is us-based
335s or 390 for the aussies
338s for competitive lms has been deactivated
