The update will be applied automatically when you restart Team Fortress 2. The major changes include: Players will now be ranked using a model based on the Glicko rating system used in CS: The old 18 Competitive ranks have been consolidated into 13 new ranks.
You can view the new ranks on the updated Competitive FAQ page http: The previous system started everyone at Rank 1, and required - in most cases - considerable time for players to reach a rank that properly reflected their performance.
The new system - by way of placement matches - considerably shortens the time required to reach an appropriate rank The requirements to access Competitive Mode have changed: If you do not own a Competitive Matchmaking Pass, you must now be at least Casual level 3 in addition to being a Premium user and having a valid phone number associated with your account.
We've made changes geared toward preserving the current damage range of flamethrowers, but requiring better aim to do so. Machine upgrade "Explode on Ignite" that resulted in it doing far more damage than intended.
We've increased base damage to help offset some of the reduction in output these fixes bring about. Changes to the "Explode On Ignite" upgrade in Mann vs. Machine Damage from the upgrade no longer counts toward the refilling the item's charge meter Fixed an issue where explosive damage could be reapplied for each target in the gas cloud Fixed the triggering bot not taking explosion damage Increased explosion damage to from The Axtinguisher The slow deploy time -- which is there to help "pay" for the burst-damage this weapon is capable of -- hasn't been very well received, and we agree that it feels awkward.
The design goal of this pass is to embrace the concept of a finishing-move weapon -- which requires planning, timing, and introduces opportunity for "combo" gameplay. Attacks mini-crit and then extinguish burning targets Receives a damage bonus based on the remaining duration of after-burn Added: And, unlike the Jarate jar, the infinite-range of the rifle means the Sniper can be far away from danger.
These changes are designed to preserve the "Jarate Rifle" identity, but tone it down, add more reward for the Sniper's skill by allowing higher first-shot damage output, and offer a way for players who want to focus on providing area-of-effect Jarate to recharge their Jarate jar more quickly.
Fully-charged body shots and headshots no longer splash Jarate on players around the target Reduced length of on-hit Jarate to 2 to 5 seconds from 2 to 8 seconds Added: Scoped headshots always mini-crit and reduce the remaining cooldown of Jarate by 1 second" The Short Circuit The current design of zapping projectiles is interesting, but we're not happy with how much it can be done.
While it would be easy to simply increase the metal cost which we've done beforeit would quickly push this weapon into the rarely, if ever, used category.
Instead, we've changed the fundamental behavior of the weapon, such that it requires a bit more anticipation and positioning from the Engineer, has more skill depth, and increases the team support potential of this weapon.
Alt-fire attack changed to launch a medium-range, projectile-destroying energy ball. Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol We underestimated how much health high-skill players would be able to recover during combat. Reduced maximum close-range per-hit heal amount to 3 from 7 The Panic Attack The recent redesign left this weapon feeling a little weak close-in, so we've increased the damage potential at point-blank and close range.
Players could perform a double-jump and then quickly switch to this item and eke out a third jump. The goal of the previous change was to require players to commit to this item in order to gain the extra jump.
