Operation White Noise – Mid-Season Reinforcements

Patch 4.2 will be deployed to the TTS on Thursday, January 11th. As with most Mid-Season Reinforcements, we have a collection of Operator changes that are coming, particularly for a couple of fan favorites (or nemeses).

Deployment on the live servers will come after we have had a chance to review the feedback from the TTS.

Ela’s SMG will have a reduced magazine size

We have decided to lower the magazine size of her SMG from 50 to 40 bullets.

Game Designer notes: Ela overpowers her competition. Players select her almost every round, and for a good reason. All of the data we have on her (such as win ratio, K/D ratio, and Kills per round) shows that she needs to be nerfed. We have found this to be primarily because of her SMG and to a lesser extent her concussion mines.

The recoil of her SMG was already nerfed slightly with Y2S3.2, but this did not have the impact that we hoped.

For now, we’re trying to balance her while keeping her SMG’s uniqueness, which lets her fight several opponents at a time better than other defenders. We will consider other ways of nerfing this weapon if this is not enough.

In addition to the reduced magazine size, we will be reducing the overall strength of concussion effects across the board.

Reduction in Concussion effects

With Y2S4.2 patch, concussion effects will no longer disable sprinting. It will still reduce movement speed and camera rotation speed, but affected targets will recuperate much faster (4 sec, instead of 7 sec). The effect on sight and hearing will still last a total of 7 sec.

Game Designer notes: This change will affect both Ela and Zofia. We believe this will most heavily impact Ela, as Zofia also has impact grenades to rely on for increased effectiveness.

Compared to other gadgets of this nature, the concussion effect is superior in almost every way: it greatly affects movement speed, massively slows down rotation speed, and also reduces a player’s ability to hear and see.

Ash’s R4-C nerf

We reduced the damage of the R4-C to 39 (from 41).

Game Designer notes: Ash is still a pick that is too attractive when compared to other attackers. We’ve compared her most popular weapon (R4-C) to other assault rifles stats and given the R4-C’s very high rate of fire (860), its damage is a bit too high.

*We are aware of a visual issue with Suppressed damage not displaying properly in the Menu. The values in-game are true to the table above.

Capitao’s Para-308 buff

We increased the Para-308’s raw damage is to 48 (from 43). We also slightly reduced the intensity of the random components of its recoil.

Game Designer notes: Capitao right now is not attractive enough. His gadget suffers from a few issues that will need long-term solutions, but in the meantime, it’s clear that his main assault rifle is too weak.

*We are aware of a visual issue with Suppressed damage not displaying properly in the Menu. The values in-game are true to the table above.

Twitch’s Shock Drone Ammo

We reduced the max ammo for each Shock Drone to 5 (from 15).

Game Designer notes: Twitch right now is too strong. There are several possible reasons, one of them being that her drones have the potential to deny an unreasonable amount of electronics from defenders. We feel that this change will force players to start making choices about when to shoot or to save their ammo, and which Defender gadgets to destroy.

Bandit’s barbed wire

Bandit will now have two barbed wire (down from 3).

Game Designer notes: Even if Ela has eclipsed Bandit’s pick rate, players still pick him too often. Reducing the number of barbed wires he has should bring him more in line with other Defenders.

Lesion’s Gu Mine refill timer

We lowered Lesion’s Gu Mine refill timer to 30 sec (from 35).

Game Designer notes: Lesion is in an OK place right now, but could use a slight buff. By reducing the refill timer, it will encourage his specific playstyle of staying alive as long as possible to increase the strength of his defensive gadget.

Temporal Filtering

The T-AA has been fully implemented. As part of this, the Resolution Scaling and Sharpness Factor slide bars are in the Options menu.

With render scaling, you will be able to customize the ratio between render resolution and display resolution, which will allow you to maintain your target framerate. For example:

More details about Temporal Filtering and Anti-Aliasing can be found here.

Bomb UI Changes

We changed the player markers for players that are interacting with the Defuser. When a teammate is interacting with the Defuser, a new animation icon appears on the player. If your teammate is in the process of disabling the Defuser, you will also notice a new animated icon on that player. The new animated icon should make it easier to identify which teammate is currently interacting with the Defuser.

Additionally, once the teammate plants the Defuser, the progress of the Defuser replaces the round timer.

These are the first steps we are taking towards improving the Bomb game mode, and we will have more information about our next steps at the Six Invitational!

Caster Camera improvements

We will be making some adjustments to the Caster Camera. These adjustments will improve the viewer experience for those watching the spectator camera, but also provide them with more information in a more digestible format.

You can see a screenshot of the new UI here:

Ghost War Update 2: Jungle Storm and Title Update 11 Patch Notes

Today we are thrilled to share with you all of the changes we are bringing to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands with the Jungle Storm update. It will be available on December 14 on PC, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One. The size of the patch will be 4 GB on Steam, 13 GB on Uplay and up to 13 GB on consoles depending on your version. Please remember that you’ll need to restart and update your platform if you wish to play online.

This update brings a myriad of fixes, improvements, and biggest of all — Ranked Mode for Ghost War. We have been listening to all of the feedback the community has been sharing, and we have worked hard to fit as much into this update as possible, while still maintaining the balance that is paramount in Ghost War. Read all about the improvements we’ve made below.

https://youtu.be/RcT88W5lkqU

GHOST WAR CHANGES

Ranked mode

Ranked Mode is now available in Ghost War! It is unlocked at level 15 and will challenge you to climb the ranks from Bronze to Elite. You can read everything you need to know about this new ranked mode in our FAQ article.

New classes

A new Marksman class has been added, called Pathfinder. Equipped with a crossbow, his light step does not trigger mines, he cannot be detected by Scout’s Drone motion sensor, marked by drones or the Sentinel’s Satcom Tracker. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will have immediate access to the class, while the other players will be able to purchase the Pathfinder with 4000 Prestige Credits after a week, in the usual skill trees. The class can also be unlocked in the in game store against Credits.

A new Assault class has been added to the game. The Predator is a reliable and versatile frontline fighter, equipped with either an M16 rifle or the MG121 LMG. His Battle Rage ability grants him all the Adrenaline bonuses for a short time: increased health and regeneration, suppression immunity and faster revive. Season Pass and Ghost War Pass owners will have immediate access to the class, while the other players will be able to purchase the Predator with 4000 Prestige Credits after a week, in the usual skill trees. The class can also be unlocked in the in game store against Credits.

New maps

New maps are added to Quickplay, Custom games, and Ranked rotation for both Elimination and Uplink game modes. Ruins and Jungle Base are added for Elimination and Scrapyard and Urban Incursion for Uplink.

Jungle Base

A small Bolivian village supported by open fields and a central massive communication center. Jungle Base is an urban environment with surrounding foliage for flanking, and elevated areas perfect for snipers. Between the buildings and bushes there are plenty of places to hide, so make sure your team is watching your back!

Ruins

Located in the forest valley, Ruins is surrounded by trees. The middle of the map has spacious areas between buildings. Be mindful of a sniper’s gaze or an assassin’s sneaky attack.

Scrapyard

A Santa Blanca hideout used to store and move cocaine to a nearby airfield, Scrapyard is a sparse, urban style environment. The middle of the map is full of right corners, so be prepared for some close combat!

Urban Incursion

A Bolivian town on the slopes of Inca Camina, this map is a moderate density urban environment for players to enjoy urban warfare. This map offers a bit of a different style and pacing from the normal Ghost War match.

Character customization presets

Three customization presets are now available to use with each class. Every customization done on a preset slot will be instantly saved. With the addition of the presets, the full customization is only available outside a match to speed up the player ready process.

We have also added a Costumes option to character customization and 5 class packs — Tech, Sentinel, Medic, Assassin, and Enforcer.

Players Stats Page

We have added a page in game in which you can view all of your stats. Weapon stats have also been added to the Gunsmith page.

Quit penalty system

We reworked our penalty system for quitting a match while it’s still ongoing. We added strikes-outs, temporary ban penalties and warning popup to make sure the player is conscious of the sanction. The ban are going from 10 minutes to 4 hours at most and the strikes are disappearing after a 2 hours long probation without a new quit. Also, keep in mind that if you leave a match before the end, you will still receive a defeat but no victory, depending on your squad result. For more information about this system, please read our Ranked mode FAQ.

Ranked Mode FAQ

With Update 2: Jungle Storm, we brought a new ranked mode system. You can now compete against the others to climb the ladder and sit at the top. In order to help you doing so, you will find all the explanations you need below.

How to unlock the ranked play?

Ranked play becomes accessible once you reached level 15. If you have already reached Prestige, this limitation do not apply to you.

How does it work?

The ranked games are divided between Seasons of two months each. A Season starts on the 1st of the month and ends two days before the end on the second month. At the beginning of each Season, you will have to finish 15 placement rounds.Your results during these placement rounds will determine what your starting rank is for the ongoing Season. The rank of every player is reset at the beginning of every Season; nothing is granted forever. Afterward, it will be up to you and your squad to improve your rank or remain at the top.

How does the progression work?

Players are divided in 6 brackets based on their Matchmaking Rating: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Elite. Once you played the 15 rounds of placement of a Season, you’ll be assigned to one of these brackets. Afterward, based on your round win/lose count, you will go higher or lower in the brackets. Players who achieved Gold or higher won’t drop down to Silver or Bronze that season, however.

Where will people see my rank?

The game displays the rank of a player with their nametags. Thus, you can see other players’ rank in the match lobby, on the tacmap, on the end-screen and in the sum-up of the match. This is also where other players will see your own rank!

How does the matchmaking work?

Ranked is a new matchmaking mode, in which you’ll be able to play both Elimination and Uplink. Players will be able to select either Quickplay/Custom/Ranked from the main menu.

In Ranked Mode, players start with their Quickplay MMR, not from a baseline. For this reason, it is possible for people to play all Ranked matches together and end up in different leagues. This will eventually even out if they keep on playing together.

The MMR of players, in both Ranked mode and Quickmatch, is based on the results of the individual rounds and not on the outcome of the entire match. For this reason, it is possible sometimes to be demoted after winning a match, especially after a 3-2 result. This will happen if the opposing team has a MMR lower than the match winners. The amount of MMR gained and lost after a round depends on how big the initial MMR gap was, so it is possible for the 2 losses in a 3-2 match to matter more than the 3 wins.

Only two things impact a player’s MMR after a round. One of them is winning or losing. The other is the standing of each player before the round. A player will lose less MMR after an “expected” loss, faced with a higher MMR opponent, and will lose more MMR points after a loss against a lower opponent (and the same is true for how many points they win after a victory). This behavior is exactly the same as in all games that use an Elo or Glicko type of system.

What are the rewards?

Every completed ranked match will grant a bonus XP. Every new bracket promotion will grant bonus Prestige credits. At the end of a Season, players will earn XP boosters and Prestige credits based on their bracket.

What are the leave penalties?

Leaving an ongoing ranked game will grant the player a strike that will disappear after a probation time or accumulate with other strikes if he keeps quitting ongoing ranked games. When strikes start cumulating, the player will receive a warning pop-up to confirm he will receive a temporary ban penalty if he chooses to leave the match. The penalties will then increase from 10 minutes to 4 hours.

Ghost Recon Wildlands – Legendary Movie Monster, The Predator, Coming in Free DLC

A deadly new threat enters Ghost Recon Wildlands this week, armed with powerful weapons, advanced stealth abilities, and more mandibles than seem strictly necessary. From December 14 through early January, the Predator will bring its unique skills to a special challenge that sees players (solo or with up to four players in co-op) hunting the creature—and being hunted in return. Defeating the Predator will be no easy task, but if players manage to take it down, they will be rewarded with exclusive items, including the Predator mask, which features Predator vision. To help you fully embrace your inner hunter, the Predator Pack (available in the in-game store) introduces 15 new customization items inspired by the original movie, including weapons and a new close combat move.

https://youtu.be/cokpaG9SyiE

Ghost War, the free PVP mode for Ghost Recon Wildlands, will also get a Predator-inspired addition: A new class of soldier inspired by Dutch, the protagonist from the original movie, who can engage a battle rage mode to tip the scales in his favor.

“At Ubisoft Paris, we have been fans of the Predator for a long time and are thrilled to bring such an iconic character to our game” said Nouredine Abboud, senior producer at Ubisoft. “The challenge is full of references to the original Predator movie, and we cannot wait to see the reaction of our players!”

We got to chat with Abboud to learn more about where the idea to bring the Predator into Wildlands came from, and how they designed the hunt to capture the deadly tension of the movie.

The Legends of the Wildlands have previously been rooted in the setting and history of Bolivia. What motivated you to look elsewhere for inspiration?

The Legends of the Wildlands really began as easter eggs for the community. When we first saw videos of our players showing their passion, we thought it would be interesting to play up to their expectations, while at the same time building on the incredibly rich Bolivian culture.

When our Fallen Ghost DLC was released, we were amazed by the feedback we got from the community members, who praised its more somber tone and its tactical approach. But what we sensed was that there had to be a Predator hiding somewhere, observing us in the jungle setting of the DLC. That’s where the idea originally started.

How did this process even start? What did the team need to do first?

When we realized in June that this year was the 30th anniversary of the original Predator movie, the coincidence was too great to pass up. We have a very good relationship with 20th Century Fox, and they were as excited as we were to let the Predator fight the Ghosts in an environment that fit their vision, so it was an exciting and fruitful discussion. Our team learned everything they could about the Predator, not only by studying the original movie, but also through exchanges between our artists and the creatives at 20th Century Fox.

What was the reaction for the team when they found out they would get to work with one of film’s most popular sci-fi characters?

The entire team was ecstatic, especially the creative team in Montpellier. Our team appreciates the original Predator movie just as much as our community does, and everybody involved had a clear vision of the direction we could give to this special challenge. I have to say that Tom Isaksen, our lead character artist, has done a tremendous job of recreating the original Predator, taking care of every costume detail. It was a great challenge.

What aspects of the Predator did you know you’d absolutely have to nail to convey the same suspense that’s present in the movies?

The mission is built to recreate some of the tension felt by Dutch and his crew in the original Predator movie. You first discover hints about the Predator’s presence before actually getting to meet and fight him. Getting that feeling of being swallowed by the surrounding jungle was something we really wanted to convey. And of course, the music takes a big part in creating the tension.

Along those same lines, what were the challenges in balancing the Predator’s abilities with the systems that already exist in Ghost Recon Wildlands? What can the Predator do, and what do the Ghosts need to do to fight it?

The Predator can run around, jump in the trees, taunt the Ghosts, and activate his cloaking device. Once he wants to engage you, he can use his Plasma Caster or his Smart Disc, depending on the situation. Being able to quickly react and always keep on your toes will be the key to defeating the Predator.

How did you approach calibrating the difficulty level for this encounter? How much of a challenge are you throwing at players?

We know that the Predator is the best hunter there is, and we really wanted our players to feel he was a great menace. The talented game designers in Montpellier tweaked the gameplay to make sure this would be the most difficult fight players could find in Ghost Recon Wildlands, especially when you approach it solo. To prevail, we think the Ghosts will need to work as a unit, so we advise our players to try out this challenge in four-player co-op with a lot of coordination and communication!

Will the Predator ever try to blow itself up?

That will be for you to find out.

GENERAL TWEAKS & IMPROVEMENTS

GAME HEALTH

GRENADE TRAJECTORY SYNCHRONIZATION

We will be testing a new synchronization logic for some projectiles, with a primary focus being on grenades.The main purpose for the Trajectory Synchronization change is to fix issues where a grenade would desync on the game client and suddenly teleport back. This synchronization change allows us to align the trajectory between what the server sees and what you see on your client. This will reduce the chances that your grenade will return to you after releasing it.

Together with this change, we will take the player velocity into consideration when throwing a grenade. As a result, moving while throwing a grenade will alter the trajectory in various ways. The initial velocity of the grenade will now be combined with the thrower’s movement velocity at the time the grenade was thrown. The thrower’s velocity will therefore modify the trajectory of the grenade in these ways: Throwing a grenade while moving forward will result in a longer throw. Throwing a grenade while moving backward will result in a shorter throw. Throwing a grenade while strafing will induce a lateral movement in the grenade trajectory.The initial reason for this change was that we found that it made grenade throws feel better with this new synchronization logic. We were also glad to see that after playing with it for a while and getting used to it, this change made us feel like it added depth and player control to grenade throwing.This feature is experimental on the TTS, so we welcome your feedback on the TTS Subreddit.

PLAYER COMFORTPISTOL RECOIL

We have changed the pistol animation for greater player comfort. Our overall goal is to make pistols a true choice for players, not just a last resort when you are out of bullets.Before this change, you always had to aim down the sights because the animation would make the barrel of the pistol lift up in the middle of the screen (where the bullet goes). As a player, you would then have to guess where the enemy is. This issue was especially true if you were aiming for their head.We have also increased the rate of fire of all pistols. Players can discharge their magazine significantly faster with this change. This has the added benefit of making pistols more lethal, which ties into making them a real choice for players.

NEW UI INDICATORS FOR BUFFS/DEBUFFS

We are introducing buff and debuff indicators on the UI HUD. This will allow for better visualization of when you, for example, have Rook armor or step on a Lesion mine. With the new visual unification of all effects on the player’s character, this means anything you have applied to you is now displayed.This includes: Rook Armor Jackal’s mark (and marking as jackal) Lesion’s GU mine Dokkeaebi’s Phone hackThere also is a color coding: Blue: Positive effect Red: Negative effect

[UPDATE] XP Issues in Ghost War

Hello Ghosts,

We have heard concerns over the bug related to the amount of XP shown as being received after every match in Ghost War. Some players have been reporting that they are being shown negative XP points being earned. We wanted to take a moment to address this issue.

It seems to only be impacting players who began leveling prior to the October 24 update and is only on the player facing side. In other words, it only looks as if you are not being awarded XP properly, but in actuality you are. Our backend is calculating all of the XP properly, and therefore you should get upgrade points and unlock classes and perks on schedule, regardless of what XP you see you are getting.

This being said, this issue will be fixed in a future update, so stay tuned.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding while we resolve this issue,
Your Ghost Recon Community Team
