Future of PA and Titans Update

We wanted to share some of the things we’ve been working on and that are currently in the pipeline:

  • Ladder reset for 1v1 giving everyone a fresh shot at hitting the top of the ladder
  • Working on server performance and optimizations to improve player experience (some of these optimizations have already been made)
  • New 1v1 ranked maps

We will let everyone know as these come online.

Also, for those of you who did not see the announcement, Community Mods, the Community Dedicated Server, Community Chat and Legion Expansion support are now up and running.

Hotfix 110069 is now live!

This hotfix resolves the SSL issue preventing MacOS users from being able to sign in. A separate fix for the PA Launcher will be rolled out next and we will release that as soon as it is ready. Thank you again for being patient with us and happy annihilating!

Update: A fix for the PA Launcher on MacOS has been released. However, there is a new bug that has appeared on the Windows PA Launcher that causes it to get stuck in an update loop. For the time being, please hit Cancel and it will allow you to continue to play Offline for now while we sort this out. Thank you for understanding.

Second Update: The issue with the Windows PA Launcher has now been resolved and you should be able to launch the game again using any platform and any OS. Thank you for bearing with us as we worked through this issue!
