Adventurer Season 6
  • The Adventurer Pass spans over the 10-week season and is a way for

      1500 E-points back when they hit tier 97!
    • Adventurer Characters (does not affect game balance)
      • There will be three Adventurer Characters in this season. All
        characters have a variety of unlockable styles, and will gradually
        unlock as the player's Tier increases their Adventurer Pass

    • The Adventurer Pass, which is available for 950 E-Points. E-Points are a
      premium in-game currency obtained with real-world money via Steam
      payment (1000 E-Points is equivalent to $9.99 USD)

    Adventurer Pass, including two base Adventurer Characters: Ookami and

    on the season tier that they have already reached!
  • Players can level up their seasonal character levels by accumulating experience
    points in-game; each character level will reward a certain amount of
    Adventurer Badge(s). Completing daily and weekly challenges will also
    reward Adventurer Badges accordingly, 10 Adventurer Badges will increase
    players’ Adventurer Tier by one
  • Weekly Challenge Missions will provide a large amount of Adventurer Badges and character
    experience points to help players increase their character levels and
    Adventurer Tiers. Season 6 will provide 10 sets of Weekly challenge
    missions. The first eight weeks' challenge missions will provide a large
    quantity of Adventurer Badges and the final two weeks' challenge
    missions will provide a large amount of character experience points. As
    the season progresses, one set of weekly challenge missions will be
    unlocked every week, and the already unlocked missions can be completed
    at any time throughout the season
  • As always, none of the rewards in the Adventurer Pass affects game balance, and all unlocked rewards stay forever

Quake Champions Fall Update
13 sep 2019

BUILD HIGHLIGHTSNEW RANKED SEASON
We’re kicking off the new season with a new ranked mode and a Leaderboard reset. Everyone begins Season 4 with a clean slate and can begin qualification matches on day 1, no need to level up before jumping into the fray. To test everyone’s skills, we’ve added Time Limit Duel to Ranked Play, which has been in the forefront since QuakeCon and the launch of the new Quake Pro League and Challenger Cups.

Now is a great time to challenge yourself in Ranked Play, completed your qualification matches, and work your way up the Leaderboard. Participating in Ranked Play is a great way to improve your skills, challenge yourself, and eventually prove yourself – and hopefully have some fun along the way. :)

How does Time Limit Duel work?
  • Objective. Choose 1 Champion, pre-selected prior to the match and are locked into place for the duration of play. Earn the most frags in 10-minutes, or first to twenty frags to win! If players are tied at the end of 10-minutes, players enter into Sudden Death and pressure mounts as the next frag leads to victory.
  • In Custom Game, TLD works just as you have come to know it. Two players in the Custom Game Lobby have an unlimited amount of time to make their Champion choices, with no restrictions. Players can increase the frag count, choose to disable abilities, or agreed to house rules for their Champion and map selections. Once the Party Leader is ready, they initiate the match and off you go!
  • In Ranked Play, TLD is largely the same, but with one new twists – blind picks. Once you have been matched with an opponent, each player will be given 15 seconds to decide who they wish to play. There are no restrictions on who you get to play, and your choice is made in private. You may have a favorite Champion that you always wish to play, you may make a decision based on the map voted upon, or you may want to make a strategic choice by attempting to guess who your opponent may select if you happen to have know their playstyle. Once both players have locked in their selections, the Champion matchups are revealed in-game when you see the two Champions face-off before entering warm-up.
  • We hope you enjoy this classic staple of Quake Duel.

NEW VANITY ITEM: DEATH KNIGHT NOSFERATUEven the creature of the night are prey to the Ash King.

NEW MODE: CLASSIC FFAWe’ve added a new game mode to Quick Play, a classic take on Free-For-All where Ranger has found himself trapped in a nightmare from when he had first entered the Dreamlands. With the all-mother Shub still up to no good and no Dire Orb at his disposal, Ranger only has his trusty Gauntlet and Machinegun at his side, along with any weapons he can add to his arsenal along his way.
  • Ranger-only Deathmatch
  • Spawn with Gauntlet, Machinegun, 125/100 HP, 0/100 AP
  • No spawn protection
  • Slower weapon respawn
  • On death, players drop weapon but do not drop shards
GAME MODE UPDATESALL (applicable)

PRACTICE TDM (Bot Matches)
  • Added The Longest Yard to Bot TDM map voting pool
SOUND UPDATESOverview (Stereo & Surround)
  • Improved directional positioning
  • Reduced volume of ambient sounds
  • Updates & fixes to reduce sound cutting out when a large number of sounds were playing
  • Reduced the volume of teammates and weapon fire not directed at you, to help you isolate and target the enemies that are immediate threats
  • Unified character sounds to a 32m (1280 u) sound radius. Most of these sounds had a radius of 37.5m (1500 u) but varied. As a comparison for those familiar with our previous titles, the max sound distance in Quake Live is 1250u.
  • Unified and reduced weapon firing and explosion sounds from 70m (2800 u) to 45m (1800 u) radius.
  • Added player respawn sounds audible within a 20m (800 u) radius
  • Added third-person weapon switching sound events, you can now hear enemies switch weapons within a 20m (800 u) radius
  • Fixed BJ-Duel Wield sounds
  • Fixed Tri-bolt Quad sound
  • Added ~250 new VO lines, increasing the diversity but not frequency of VO
HRTF 3D Positional Sound (Beta)Improvements and fixes made to the HRTF Beta, but is currently only recommended for matches with small player counts, such as Duel.
Want to try HRTF 3D Positional Sound? Be sure to check the following:
  • Set in-game Speaker Configuration to Stereo
  • Enable HRTF before you play, HRTF can only be enabled or disabled in Settings while not in-game
  • You must be using Stereo Headphones. Special headphones are not needed, you can use anything from Ear Buds to Studio Monitor Headphones, but headphones that have Surround Sound features should have those features disabled or they would not be recommended.
  • Spatial Sound in windows should be set to (Off)
  • Disable any other Windows or audio driver level Surround Sound simulations or environmental effects
Changes & FixesHit Boxes
  • Increased the radius of the existing Torso Capsule to 0.4m (16u) for all Champions, giving a consistent center mass hitbox. Arms, legs, and head hit volumes still exist as additional hit areas
Play Now UI

Scoreboard UI
  • Added Kill/Death Ratio to all non-Duel Scoreboards
  • We no longer show your player at the top of your team’s scoreboard regardless of placement
Leaderboard UI
  • Removed the unused Season dropdown
Player Profile UI

Control Settings
  • Updated Zoom Sensitivity to use an auto scaling 1:1 monitor distance zoom sens. Zoom Sensitivity 1.0 will now provide you the exact same mouse sensitivity feeling as when unzoomed
  • Added ‘Auto-Scale Zoom Sensitivity’ option. Recommend and enabled by default, this will apply focal length scaling to your mouse sensitivity while zoomed. When disabled, there is no auto-zoom scaling and the Zoom Sensitivity Multiplier will be applied directly to your mouse sensitivity, allowing you more control over your zoom sens.
  • Updated Control Settings layout to support new options, keep weapon and movement binds “above the fold” and position the often adjusted mouse sensitivity values closer to the Save button
  • Added greater precision to the Mouse Sensitivity, Pitch, Yaw, Mouse Accel, Mouse Accel Offset, Mouse Accel Sensitivity Cap, and Zoom Sensitivity Multiplier sliders
