This downtime has ended early! The new patch (38MB) can be automatically downloaded via the launcher.

Attention test pilots,

The HAWKEN Closed Beta servers will be taken offline at 4:00 PM Pacific for about two hours to address the issues that players are experiencing such as server connectivity. A new patch will automatically be downloaded via the launcher when Closed Beta service resumes.

If you're unfamiliar with beta tests, the purpose behind these events is to discover issues and address them before a game formally launches. You're helping us make HAWKEN the best mech-'em-up free-to-play shooter it can be from day one of Open Beta on December 12, 2012.

We greatly appreciate your understanding during these outages and technical headaches. Your patience speaks to the quality of the HAWKEN community and for that we thank you. During the downtime, please provide your feedback on the Closed Beta forums.

Keep being awesome and know that we're actively working to get you back in the fight ASAP.

Might as well report another bug.

Bug: Typo in latest patch notes. "Variety is the spice of life. after all." should be "Variety is the spice of life, after all."
Cause: Viewing the post.
Reproduction: Open the patch notes, see typo.
Severity: 1

Heh just kidding, nice work guys.

Not a fan of the PhysX off by Default... that should be something the user can decide on otherwise its a backwards step for nvidia users.

I also found a bug as well that I didn't have a chance to screenshot either.

Squashed Bugs
  • Resolved an issue which sometimes caused a loss of earned XP. Now you can back up that 27/0/0 deathmatch with the numbers to prove it.

Does this include mech level and xp getting reset as well?

I think they just mean it's off by default as opposed to on by default, and that a user can still toggle it on.

Hmm, would that be why I suddenly had a mech who went from Level 6 to Level 0, then? :P

I did do that. I do have screenshots to prove my level and such beforehand.

According to my screenshots, at 5:30 PM Eastern, I was still Level 5 (almost level 6).

At 5:52 PM Eastern, I got the XP that would get me to Level 6 (assuming I hadn't become Level 6 due to the previous match). I quit because I wanted to go spend those points and level up my mech, but when I went to the garage, it told me it was Rank 0, and those 4200 XP were all I had.

So I guess it boils down to when you guys did the reset. If it was around this timeframe, then obviously my bug is due to you guys actually resetting stuff. If not, then something weird happened!

AHHHH WRONG!!! (Kinda)

The ACTUAL lvl and xp have not reset (YET!) However the IN GAME after action report will sometimes say that your mech is lvl 0 no matter what lvl it was previous.
