Warface Gains Major Improvements in "Treasure Hunters" Season

Treasure Hunters Season Crytek Studios

Are you a competitive Warface player? Experience the Treasure Hunters season and join in Ranked matches, now in full swing! But unlike the previous season, there are quality-of-life features implemented thanks to a recent update.

Ranked Match Improvements

Warface now has a matchmaking queue timer for all game modes, including PvE, PvP, special ops, and of course, Ranked matches. This timer gives you a rough estimate of how much time you have to wait for the system to find a match for you.

Matchmaking Timer Crytek Studios

The developers also implemented some changes to penalize you if you leave the match early. If you suddenly get disconnected from a match, due to a random disconnection or technical difficulty, but you're able to log back in before it concludes, you will be rewarded in full if your team wins, or lose points in case your group lost.

Now, if you leave the match and have no intention of coming back, you will get banned from participating in Ranked matches for a limited time. You will also not receive any points if your team wins the match. If your group was defeated, your team only loses half the usual points, however, you will lose the full amount.

Plus, the early surrender is removed in the new system. The surrender vote only becomes available in the fourth round or during the seventh-minute mark of the match.

This patch implemented other changes, improvements, and bug fixes as well. Here are some of them:
