Jagged Alliance Online gets Comprehensive Update
The latest milestone of the turn-based strategy game Jagged Alliance Online brings with it a reworked PvP system, an improved world map and adjustments to the difficulty of the game. As a result, the mercenaries that players know and love can be hired much earlier on and are no longer only available to high-level players.
The changes to the PvP system apply mostly to matchmaking, which now finds equal opponents more quickly. A new global ranking list, which shows the best PvP players in all game modes, has also been added. The world map now has a centralized PvP area that connects the PvP missions, which were previously separate. To provide a better overview and help players find a suitable mission more quickly, the difficulty of a mission is now shown on the world map.
Changes also include some game rebalancing, particularly with the damage from SMGs. PvP has also added new rewards along with healing and repair options to help players get into (and out of) matches quickly and safely. The entire update comes with an account reset to level the playing field.
