New in v0.19 2017-11-04
While the new 0.19 version is bringing a fair bit of polish, with previously missing features such as follow killer and powerup for spectators and callvote kick for the odd time someone needs to be shown the door. The main new features to look out for is how the game changed how to deal with first spawn and respawning players in general as well as a few new powerups, to give a bit of color to deathmatch in general.
Spawning and Respawn:
As the game counts down, players will be spawned at their locations, while still able to look around they won't be able to move until the match starts properly. Letting them plan ahead for their game. Make a plan for where they will go first. And in some cases also spot where the opposing player(s) have spawned.
When fragged, the player will be moved to their next spawn point as they are made able to respawn and there they will get a spy cam on where they will spawn and what is happening at that location. At this moment you have 3 seconds to chose when to spawn before the game does it for you.
The game now has a few more powerups that you may not commonly see in AFPS games like these.
Chaos Sphere, Berserker Sphere and Leach Sphere. A fair disclaimer though. These are quite potent powerups, and potentially (probably) they could be a bit overpowered. But for the time being, they are what they are. Since testing them should be fun regardless.
This powerup makes your weapons fire 3x as many shots spread in an 45degree arc from your POV.
This powerup makes you only have fists. But with the added bonus of them having an AOE exploding attack on contact. You also have the benefit of a battlesuit to make you survive a bit longer. Because explosions hurt.
This powerup makes you recieve 100% of all you deal to an enemy damage back to you. It's quite potent, you can overcharge your health way past your ordinary max.
