Counterpact November 28 Update Steam

The developers of Counterpact released a new update focused on mode-related objectives and balancing adjustments.

Mode-Related Objectives

Now, completing mode-related objectives will award players with points. In Power Struggle and Dual Power Struggle, players present in the capture zone are rewarded with one point each, upon its capture. In Capture the Flag, players who initially grabbed the flag will receive one point and the player who captures the flag will receive another point. In a situation where the same player initially grabs and captures the flag, they will receive two points.

Balancing Adjustments

In the latest update, the developers made balancing adjustments to improve the overall gameplay experience. Players are now required to make three captures - the default goal - in Capture the Flag. Also, flags that are dropped in or next to an elimination zone are reset instantly.
