Kicking AFK Players:

    • Players will receive a message after being kicked, to let you know why you’ve been removed.
  • Players who AFK in Training Mode after queuing for Ranked with our Dual Matchmaking will be removed from the Training Mode session, but remain in their Ranked queue.

Synced Up Emotes:

  • Sync-up your emotes with players within a 15-meter radius of your character or in the lobby on the main menu.

Reputation System Updates:

  • Normal Matches: Exiting a match while in the starting area, prior to boarding the plane will NOT negatively impact your reputation.

    • You can leave a Ranked Match up to 5 minutes after (but not before) the plane has taken off without losing reputation, in situations where matchmaking has provided you with a random teammate who has then exited the match.

Changed the Key Binding for quantity adjustment

  • Pressing D-pad left/right and R-stick left/right will increase/decrease selected items by one.
  • Hold D-pad left/right and R-stick left/right will increase/decrease selected items by one. However, once it reaches ten, it increases by tens.
  • Press/Hold D-pad up/down will increase selected items by ten.
