NFSW Maintenance Window - August 21

Post by SwiftDrift27 on Tue Aug 21, 2012 3:25 pm

Purpose:
The purpose of this maintenance window is to deploy server / a game patch to Need for Speed World. Please see Release Notes below.

Date:
August 22nd, 2012

Duration(s):
5 hours
Start: 1pm (13:00) PDT – 4pm (16:00) EDT – 8pm (20:00) UTC
End: 6pm (18:00) PDT – 9pm (21:00) EDT – 1:00pm(01:00) UTC

New Features:
- New Car Classes system: Cars are no longer bracketed by Tiers, and are instead bracketed by Classes (E, D, C, B, A and S)
- Players can upgrade any of their cars to reach a higher Car Class based on the car’s Overall Rating
- The Purchase Cars, Sell Cars and Change Cars screens have been updated to feature an improved user interface and functionality.
Cars are now sorted in a scrollable list with the option to filter by Class and Make. A new panel shows any Skill Mods, Performance Parts, and Aftermarket Parts that are installed on the car, even before purchase; Players can mouseover each icon to get more information (e.g. part values)
- Events-of-the-Day: Events will dynamically change every day (about 12 to 15 events will be available per day.)
- Parts no longer have Tiers, any part can now be installed on any car
- All Street Performance Parts are now available for purchase with Cash in the Performance Shop
- More Car Slots will be unlocked at different levels: level 12, level 20, level 30, level 40, and level 50 (Players will be awarded the car slots retroactively based on their current level)
- A.I opponents now compete using a larger selection of cars

Changes & Bug Fixes:
- The maximum number of players per Multiplayer Event has been reduced from 8 to 6
- Events are no longer level restricted
- Cars available for Cash are no longer locked by level
- Visual Packages sold for Cash are no longer locked by level
- Car repair prices have been adjusted
- Cash prices have been adjusted across all cars
- SpeedBoost prices for a number of cars have been adjusted
- The starting Cash balance for new Drivers has been adjusted
- The “Misc” category has been removed from the Performance Shop
- Fixed an issue in the Skill Workshop that caused filters to appear blank after scrolling to the bottom of the Store
- Fixed a vinyl mirroring issue on the BMW M6 Convertible
- Some missing damage detail was added for the BMW 135i “Flexor”

I won't spell it out directly but here's a hint;

Imagine you're a security guard. In your office, you have 50 monitors to check constantly. It'd be pretty easy to miss something if you're not looking in the right place. If that number of screens is taken down to 15, it's more likely you'll spot something wrong.

Oh, and it's also one of the reasons why the number of competitors has been taken down from 8 to 6, although it'll obviously also help with lag.
