Dylan Jobe discusses Warhawk 1.1 patch

If you've been keeping an eye on the PlayStation.Blog you will have noticed that Dylan Jobe has recently posted up a nice piece of news regarding Warhawk. Several pieces, actually. To begin with, Warhawk version 1.1 is on its way and will arrive sometime before the end of October (that's this month, by the way). The update doesn't add anything to the gameplay but, instead, is mostly focused on stability and glitch fixing and will work alongside recent stability fixes on the server side. This is great for those of us who still suffer from weird stats errors (we get rank increases almost every time we login) or who still can't make it onto ranked servers. The full patch list can be found after the jump.

The second big announcement involved new Warhawk police - called Arbiters - who will be overlooking the leaderboards and who will be joining games in order to maintain the Warhawk peace. With guns. They have a wide array of punishments at their disposal including kicking, banning and sending harshly worded emails to you and your parents. So if any of you are sneaky cheaters then you'd best watch out - the Arbiters are after you.

Finally, Jobe mentions an announcement regarding update v1.2 coming soon. This will probably be the December expansion we've been hearing so much little about. We'll keep you posted.

Server-side updates

  • Stat database stability improvements
  • Improved server stability
  • Max Clan limit changed from 32 to 64
  • Viral Rank-up bug fixed and correct for players that were accidentally ranked up.
  • "Time-in-Vehicle" Stats fixed so certain awards can now be granted properly.

Client-side updates for Patch v1.1

  • Stat connection, fetch/post fixes
  • Significantly improved client connection stability
  • Quad "????" Ping display bug fixed.
  • Added support for Player-Ranked Servers.
  • Game synchronization fixes due to fluctuating network conditions (packet-drop).
  • Crash fixes for end of game and split screen.

1. lol. i like the first part of the update with the rankign fixes and stuff but the arbiters part sounds like a joke. are they really gonna send e-mails and run around the servers chasing down cheaters and stuff. what would they even do?? i think its gonna be funny when they actually start doing this.

2. yeah im not sure I like the idea of the game being policed, I have never really had a problem with cheating, plus if you dont like how someone is playing leave the server. Hopefully this whole policing thing only applies to official servers, dont police personal servers. I wonder what will be policed specifically, like would you be kicked for team killing? One game I was in turned into a big team killing match, no one really got points but we all enjoyed ourselves, so it would be dumb if we got kicked for that because someone whined about it. I dont know I'm just never a fan of being policed, power to the people...err players.

3. Please fix the invisible tank cheat.. its freakin annoying as hell.

4. i totally agree with phattie that damn tank glitch is annoying as hell. As for policing the game, i dont really mind since im not one who goes out to team kill just for the fun of it. If i ever team kill, its because either you out right shot at me for a weapon or killed me for one and this has happend or if i was going after the enemy and i killed a team member by mistake. Accidents do happen, as long the warhawk "policemen" understand this then i have no problem with policing the game. There's too many jack ass cheaters out there anyways.

7. I hope something can be done about those rankup no kill pussys . I like nothing better than getting into their games and messing them up (rocket launcher/air strike group kills and hiding the flag etc) tee hee !!
so far i've been banned from 6 of their servers!!!! lol

Policing is a big deal for me. I was playing with an African American friend and throughout the game he got verbally abused and there was nothing I nor he could do about it. You only need to be worried if you cheat.

And I am pretty sure the game knows what your IP address is no matter what PSN screen name you use so they can block your IP.

(I am surprised they aren't already mods in the game already)

9. How about a patch that lets us re-map all the buttons the way we want?

10. When is Best Buy doing this promo?

11. Come on, so none of you ever get annoyed when your own team member just suddenly knifes you in the back or blows you away with the tank for no reason at all ?

Yeah, that's really annoying and it happens all the time.
