New Feature: Time Bank!
  • We've added a new feature to all modes called the Time Bank
  • Each player gets 2 Time Bank charges per match
  • If you hit 0 seconds on the timer without locking in, you will get an additional 5 seconds and a Time Bank charge will be consumed
  • You can only use 1 charge per turn (so you cannot use both charges in a single turn)
  • We've added this because the biggest "feel bad" moment right now is completely missing a turn. This allows players to have a couple moments each game where they can lock in just after the timer ends without missing an entire turn. We'd love to hear your feedback on this new feature!

Tutorial
  • The tutorial is now optional for new players
  • As part of our Beta test, we are trying out making the tutorial optional
  • New players will be greeted with a screen that makes it more clear what type of game Atlas Reactor is and they will be recommended (but not required) to play the Tutorial
  • The default PLAY selection for New Players is VS BOTS.

UI
  • Changed fonts in a few parts of the UI to make them more readable
  • Number of players in the matchmaking queue has been removed as a display (but estimated time remains)
  • Why did we remove the number of players? This was an example of something that was hurting perception more than helping it. Our goal is to keep the queue relatively small - the faster we can make quality matches, the better for all of our players. We don't want you sitting in queue! The number of players in the queue isn't directly correlated to the number of people playing - but people were using it as that. We've removed the number since estimated time is a much better indicator to players of when a match will occur and it doesn't confuse what the goals are for the queue.
