In the current update we’ve also tweaked the settings for the Domination battle mode. The reason is that during Closed Beta Testing, games played in this mode would have a shorter duration than in other modes. We received complaints that players often did not get a chance to take action in the game due to the short time-span and, as a result, the game-mode put too much emphasis on spotting. The team that had more light and fast ships would have the upper hand.
To better balance the importance of spotting and to bring the overall duration of battles in Domination in line with the other modes we tweaked the settings on almost all maps for patch 0.4.0.
Below you can find the changes we did in comparison with game version 0315.
