    2019 Season

    Hey Everyone!

    We’ve got a new patch coming your way in the weeks ahead!

    First, I want to thank you all for your support over the past few years and for continuing to play Atlas Reactor! Below are the changes you will see in upcoming patches.

    2019 Season:
    This next Season will not be numbered, but will be named after the current year. This next season is planned to be at least 5-6 months long instead of the usual 3-4 months.
    We have revamped the rewards from Season levels to include rewards from the entire history of Atlas Reactor. You will find rewards up to level 500! If you reach a level with a reward that you have already collected, you will be given a Legendary Loot Matrix instead. These Legendary Loot Matrixes are full of rare and legacy skins, taunts, emojis, overcons and more. We have also added the ability to purchase season levels, and you will receive all the rewards given for those levels at once. Since every season level has the reward of a Loot Matrix, we will be removing the Loot Matrix packs since they are mostly redundant, though the packs we offer during special events will still return.

    New Skin! Commando Zuki will be released as a reward for reaching level 500 or purchase with Prestige Points. The two offered will be different variants, so you can collect both!

    New Mods for all Freelancers! Over this season we plan to release new mods periodically. One thing we were concerned about was how a large influx of mods would affect ranked balance, so some mods will not be available in ranked mode initially.

    Ranked:
    End of Season Ranked rewards will now be given based on the highest rank achieved instead of some rewards being given based on standing at the end of the season. New rewards are being added for purchase with Prestige Points. We are also increasing the amount of Prestige Points given per match to make up for seasons being longer.

    I also wanted to respond to some of the questions/concerns I’ve been seeing:
    During 2018 we released both Vonn and Lex, while popular characters, they didn’t help bring new players into the game. We love adding new Freelancers to the game, but currently we are focusing on adding sustainable progression and variety to gameplay.

    Players have mentioned long queue times for ranked during non-primetime hours, we are hoping that the new ranked rewards will give players an incentive to queue up. This is something we will continue keeping an eye on.

    Hexcellence and Oblivion will be returning to the PVP queues with the patch. We are also planning to run more alternate game mode weekends like the one we ran late last year for extraction.

    Thank you for playing Atlas Reactor!

    Matthew ”NotShyguy” Walsh

    This all sounds great! Are there any balance changes coming with the new season? Or will that effectively be done through adding mods?

    I'm so incredibly hyped for the new season! When I heard about Trion being bought out by a new company I thought the worst. (I'm positive I'm not the only one in the community that did the same). New Mods!

    Happy New Year! and good to see your post. New mods sound great and im down for some new things to spend my boat load of prestige points on and 500 legendary loot matrices sound good to me esp if i can pick up a few of the warbotics skins I happened to miss.

    And WOW Xu, first post. Im Eco and im new also,

    I am looking forward to the changes in the new season, but I still hope to have a new Freelancer in the next season.I saw the new Freelancer's avatar (which is an fp) in the live broadcast before the season 7. This season is not out, is it stopped production?

    I'd say overall I'm positive about this post. Getting new blood into the game is vital and I hope there's a significant renewed focus on that. One of the things I think is a challenge to overcome is that the game can be very difficult, even for experienced players. For newbies, it can be stultifying. I don't know what the churn numbers are but I imagine they are pretty high. If that could be addressed somehow there's a great future for the game.

    I hope you will also invest in marketting the game to get new people in! Just a few days on steam frontpage for example would surely bring a much needed boost to userbase (that's where I found it from initially :P)

    Balance will be a work in progress as mods come out. This season will not have sweeping balance changes like most previous seasons.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear, every level will continue to give regular Loot Matrixes, as it does currently on live. The Legendary Loot Matrixes are given as replacement for rewards that appear every few levels.
