Warhammer Underworlds: Online's latest update was released today, and it is an important one. The update added some cool new features including a leaderboard, the new Exalted rank, and queue changes. It also brought a handful of bug fixes.

You will be able to access the new leaderboard by clicking on the ladder button. There are two kinds of leaderboards, one is for Exalted and the second is Warband-specific. One new rank has also been added to the game. Now you will be able to climb that ladder even further. The new Exalted rank is higher than Rank 1. The Exalted rank will also show a number which will represent your ranking. Now you can see who is really on top.

That’s not all, as this update also removed the previous Casual and Ranked queues. The developers didn’t want to divide the player base between the two queues, so now they are combined into one ‘Play Online’ button.

As mentioned above, the update also brought many bug fixes. You can read about them below or on the official site.

Warhammer Underworlds: Online Update 029 Patch Notes


Hitting the ladder button will bring up the all new leaderboard screen - compare your performance to other players across the world. Where do you sit against the highest ranking players?

  • Exalted leaderboard
  • Warband-specific leaderboard

Introducing Exalted

Once you’ve hit Rank 1, the fight to be the very best isn’t over. Beyond this top rank, you’ll be titled Exalted and Warhammer Underworlds: Online will show you a new number that represents your ranking in relation to other players that have also become Exalted. Using the new leaderboards, you’ll be able to find out if you really sit at the top.

  • New highest rank: Exalted

Queue Changes

On startup, you’ll notice a change to the way you play matches in Warhammer Underworlds: Online. We don’t want to split those looking for games into two separate queues, so to reduce wait times, Casual and Ranked queues have been merged into a single queue, now called Play Online.

  • Merged Casual and Ranked queues into Play Online
