Good afternoon Quakers! Week 10 Challenges from BattlePass 15 are live. Season 15 started a couple weeks ago, and brought with it 3 New weapon skins added from the classic video game Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (2007). Tower of Koth map variants for Sacrifice, and Capture the Flag have been added as game mode options. Many other changes are here for Season 15. You can read our ARTICLE about Season 15’s content patch for more details. MID SUMMER PATCH. We also received a PTS update yesterday August 24th, 2022. I’ll leave those notes below. 20 DAYS REMAIN FOR SEASON 15.
🔹 Corrupted Keep – Fixed exploitative player hiding spot in ring-out area
🔹 Corrupted Keep – Fixed two exploitable totem/turret spots outside the SSG and TB windows
🔹 Ruins of Sarnath – Fixed an exploitable totem/turret spot in the upper walls in the hallways surrounding the central room
🔹 Death Knight – Fixed Fire Trail activation. Removed damage from standing on the trail, in exchange for it 100% applying the fire dot (which is still 10dmg/sec for 7 seconds)
🔹 Sorlag – Ally spit color now blue, so you know it’s safe (still green in first person) (acid steam works at the moment, but the decal is still green)
🔹 Fixed issues that prevent some sound events from playing when multiple occurrences happened within a narrow timeframe:
- jumppads sounds within 100 milliseconds
- jump sounds (from the same champion type) within 100 milliseconds
- steps sounds (from the same champion type) within 100 milliseconds
- pain sounds (from the same champion type) within 500 milliseconds.
🔹 Potential fix for NVIDIA Reflex issues on unsupported cards
🔺 Logging added for continued Game Pass work
🔹 Anti-cheat updates
If you are not already familiar Quake Champions has 4-ish Seasons a year that also correspond with our BattlePass Seasons. Meaning we have 4: 10 to 12 week long BattlePasses a year. Week 1 is primarily made up of completing basic tasks such as completing matches, playing specific game modes, or using your champion abelites. Note the right side of the BP does not open up until you buy the BP for 1000 Platinum.
A new set of challenges opens up every Wednesday at 8:00 PM EAST | 2:00 AM CEST. The challenges are broken up in 2 parts. First their week, and then their side left side | right side. The left side consists of the free challenges you can obtain without buying the Battlepass. The right side is accessible after buying the Battlepass. The right side tends to be slightly harder, but gives additional XP as well as shards.
You can buy the BattlePass for 1000 platinum. Platinum is the Premium currency in Quake Champions. If you are using steam I recommended buying from Bethesda directly at this link: Platinum Editions!
Valve takes 30% of all purchases from steam. The money you buy with platinum goes back to the Quake development project. Just make sure you are logged into your associated Bethesda account, and it should be in their by the time you log into the game. If you are using the Bethesda launcher then just purchase it in game as you normally would, but you will be on steam soon just a heads up. (Microsoft Store integration soon).
The Battlepass itself is separated in 2 rows. The top row is the free version. You can acquire all the items here just by playing the game to level up your Battlepass. The bottom row is unlocked only with the purchase of the Battlepass. This is retroactive. So, if you are at level 50 and decide at that point you want to buy the Battlepass. Everything below level 49 will be added to your account. Keep an eye out for level 2, and 36 as these levels give you an automatically applied haste salve which gives you Triple XP for 7 whole days.
Once you have purchased the BP click the shield at the top of the screen, and hit the activate button that will be below the season 15 Name Plate.
Just a heads up you are getting an instant 7 day Haste Potion at level 2 with the paid version of the BattlePass. You also get another at level 35. You can earn 155 Platinum from the BattlePass this season. There is technically a 2nd half to the Battlepass levels maxing at level 200. Level 101 to 200 has rewards as well. Every 5 levels starting at 105 you will receive 1 shard. While every 10 levels starting at level 110 you will receive 1 shard, and 1 Reliquary. The only exceptions being 190 where you receive 3 shards, and 200 which you will receive 5 shards.
