Joyous Frost Wind!

And we are live \m/<(-_-)>\m/

Frost wind festival is a two week event that runs from today to January 4th 8am Eastern.This Den will cover the content available.

For Honor received an award for the People's Choice fighting game of the year.

They will be giving away 50 sweaters in the twitch raffle.

News of the week

They finished their dedicated servers test, they had good feedback which has highlighted some issues but overall they are in good shape and are very pleased with the feedback. They have things they want to improve and things they still need to implement. They mostly had no more latency than P2P, they do plan to put servers in the likes of Brazil. The people working on lag compensation are looking at the latency data from the servers test.

Bots, they re-opened the mmr, people will be seeing more level 1bots until they have 10-20 matches, when they are back from holiday the devs will look at the thresholds of bots. They have other things in mind for matchmaking but this was a necessary first step.

The last patch introduced a raider bug that affected out of stamina punishes, that will be fixed in a live update probably when they get back new year,it is in testing.

There is a bundle with everything except the weapons, as with any bundle it is a dynamic price, available 28th December to 7th January.

Themed event orders
Battle of 12 days, a new order per day with rewards and an ongoing story for each

There was a question over if the winter weapons would translate to higher rep gear. They want to, they don't have a solution yet but they advise to keep that weapon.

They brought out a texture artist to show us the winter weapons. They are themed after the arctic landscape, all of them have a gem. The main material is silver.

Inventory space, they are still investigating ways and means of increasing this. They have uses for salvage in the works but cannot talk about it yet.

Do they plan on making black iron blades and will there ever be all black colour pallets? Maybe

Team is working on Highlander tweaks.

Community corner which became part Q&A part through, added the questions above so um you already read them lol. There will be no Den until January 11th. And that is a wrap.

Yuletime gift to all, one recapped Den

Much obliged!

Concerning that line about all-black color palette; there's already 3 or 4 palettes that have 2 black and 1 dark colour. Those palettes also mask paint patterns, only patterns that have tri-color will show their third color, in the designated dark colour in the palette.

Doubt all-black is gonna look nice, however, if there would be an option to choose no patterns on the cloth parts, that would be nice. By then, people can choose dark color palettes which will give a near full-black look.

Thanks again for the awesome recap!

I really do like the frost win event but I main the shamen and I feel like the Vikings got a really bad mask, not because of the buffalo idea itself, I don't mind that but because the mask isn't even on the face in the executions and there is no like frost effect like there is with the other masks. Please can you change it to be on the face when executing
