Location and mission updates

Changes in the respawn protection mechanics. Kill areas have been decreased, new logic for enemy detection on the mini map near the respawn zones has been added. Aircraft missions

Number of ground targets for low amount of players in a game session (from 11 to 21) has been increased.


Operations for lower ranks:

In missions where runway length was less than 1200m (mainly 900m), original airfields have been replaced by new ones with a runway of 1200m. Now it is easier to land and take off.

The accuracy of air defense covering ground targets has been reduced.

“[Operation] Counter-offensive”, “[Operation] Bastogne”, “[Operation] Henan Province” and “[Operation] Fortification on Sicily” have been rebalanced so that ground units are closer to the friendly team spawns. (Previously allies had an advantage in these missions). Targets for bombing are now equally reachable by both teams.

[Operation] Honolulu now has bombing zones and it is possible to destroy the enemy airfield.

“[Operation] Yoo Passage” bombing zones have been relocated and air spawns for bombers are now equally distant from the mission centre.

“[Operation] Port Moresby. Distance between spawns are now similar to that of other low-rank Operations. The Allied airfield has been moved. Spawns have been adjusted so that the Allies do not have superior advantage.
