We hope you’ve been enjoying Disney Speedstorm’s fourth Season, “The Cave of Wonders”. It’s been amazing to see so many new players hit the track after our full launch. The team has been hard at work making improvements based on your invaluable feedback and we’ve got a mid-season hotfix primed and ready for November 2!
RANKED MULTIPLAYER PARTY LEVEL REQUIREMENTS
In Ranked Multiplayer, the party system was being exploited by a small portion of the player base. To address this issue and to help improve matchmaking in general we have now introduced Racer Upgrade limits to Multiplayer parties.
This means a party cannot be comprised of Racers with an Upgrade Level difference of more than 10 levels. For example, if a Racer is Upgrade Level 1, the maximum Upgrade Level you can queue in a party with is Upgrade Level 11 or a level 40 Racer cannot queue with a level 29 Racer and so on.
We will monitor how this new system works and adjust it based on community feedback, if needed.
RANKED MULTIPLAYER MATCHMAKING
Racers with a very high Upgrade Level but very low MPR League will no longer be matched with Racers with both a low Upgrade Level and MPR League. This change should improve the initial Ranked Multiplayer experience for new players, while ensuring more challenging races for experienced players.
Players were able to exploit both Common and Unique Skills that grant a speed boost by repeatedly hopping after activating the skill to maintain top speed for a longer duration than intended. It is no longer possible to maintain top speed by hopping repeatedly when using one of these skills.
- The hit detection when Dashing a rival Racer in Multiplayer has been improved.
- Fixed an issue causing Racers to be sent backwards after Dashing a Rival Racer.
