UPDATE JUNE 14TH - Xbox Matchmaking Update has gone live.

Recommended Posts

Hi all! We've been hard at work and wanted our next update to be a positive one for you all here on Facebook. Our team has been working non-stop on this update and we're in a place where things are far more stable. To be frank; we're still monitoring memory-leak issues, but the vast majority of users should be getting into games quickly via Quick Play with far fewer instances.
Apologies from our team are in order for this wait and our thanks for the patience that we've been granted from our fans. It's a long, tough road for issues such as this, but you guys are heard and we are working as fast as possible to improve your experience. We are thankful that so many of you find the game to be very fun when you play, that's always our goal, so we've worked tirelessly to ensure that every single person is getting to enjoy that experience.
Exploits that users reported are being removed. This patch is the first batch of some major ones we identified, while PS4/Steam will be getting a larger set of exploit fixes coming.
Our team has been taking a lot of feedback into account from fans, so this update has a lot of exploit fixes and we've added a more severe penalty to counselor team-killing. This penalty will go live with the other versions of the game on their next respective patches. As for other griefing/harassment concerns; we are looking into a report feature to ensure that users that go far and away beyond acceptable behavior are taken care of. We will have news on that in the coming weeks.
For those on PS4 and Steam; we have updates planned quickly, mainly for exploit fixes and a perk-selling exploit that will be resolved with our patch. We are aiming for this week on Steam and next week with PS4, however we would like to remind users that this is not set in stone. Another stability patch for Xbox One is already lined up with even more fixes, but we're here to get those users that had to wait a better experience. Stay tuned for an announcement on what we plan to do for everyone coming soon!
