UPDATE: We'll be extending the maintenance window by 60 minutes. Thanks for your patience!

Attention, pilots!

The HAWKEN servers will be unavailable at 5:00 PM PDT (GMT-7) on March 14 to introduce a the following game updates:
  • The "disappearing HUD" bug that prevents weapon and item use after re-spawning should now be fixed.
  • Players will now be able to launch back into the Training Mission during the bot battle.
  • Major collision exploits on the Facility map have been fixed.
  • Facility map server stability has been improved.
  • Players with Pilot Ratings below 1475 can now always join Beginner servers while players with Pilot Ratings above 1700 can now always join Advanced servers.
  • Some servers will now always display as Beginner or Advanced.
  • The Pilot Ranking range for joining servers has been reduced to +/-200. This value is still subject to change in future patches.
The servers will be accessible again within 60 minutes. See you on the battlefield soon!

Edit: Huh, turns out that server doesn't like embedding.

Anyway, oh please, oh please, I hope this works.

So, anyone over 1800 MMR can join any Advanced server (regardless of rating)? Or are they still limited to +/- 200? That is, will a rating of 2100 be able to join a server at 1650 (the limit for Advanced rating)? Vice versa, will an 1800 be able to join a server rated 2100?

Regardless if their Pilot Rating is far above Advanced or far below Beginner, pilots will always be able to join the appropriate server via the server browser.

It sounds like you need to restart the launcher. Our Support Team can provide additional help: https://playhawken.zendesk.com/

Is that a yes, or a no (or is it buttermilk pancakes)?

It's a yes. He's saying anyone at an Advanced rating and above can join an Advanced match, regardless of whether they're 200 above the rating or 2000.

It seems the 100 kill cap for 24 TDM has been reverted back to a 50-kill cap. Can you raise it to 100 again please?

Which is great because I could see people having trouble finding matches with ratings in 2k+

Can anyone explain to me how ratings are determined? Is it solely by exp per minute or what?

I have a correction on those numbers: Beginner is ≤1475, Medium is 1476-1699, and Advanced is ≥1700.

I experienced the respawn-HUD glitch today.
Lucky me.

Also, might you clarify upon what is entailed upon being able to relaunch in the training mission?
I'm not sure if I am comprehending this correctly.
