Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 brings Prise de Tahure Map, Full Patch Note

Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 for PS4, Xbox One and PCs is now available for download. The update size is around 4.8GB on PlayStation 4, 5GB on Xbox One, and 4GB on PC.

The new update comes with Prise de Tahure map. This is the second night map and the final map for the They Shall Not Pass expansion. You’ll need to own the Premium Pass or They Shall Not Pass to play on it. You can also access the map contents via Premium Friends or Premium Trials. Check out more details below.

Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 Patch Note

Prise de Tahure

  • Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 brings Prise de Tahure which is second night map and the final map for Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass. French raiders and German stormtroopers clash in an urban trench setting as the nights grow colder in the Champagne-Ardennes region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German and French troops. This content will be available for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners and owners of the They Shall Not Pass expansion pack. Non-Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners will be able to access the content via Premium Friends or Premium Trials.

Premium Trials

  • Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 introduces Premium Trials. Premium Trials are timed events that allow non-Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owners to experience the maps of our fully released expansion packs before they buy. Sounds similar to Premium Friends, right? It’s the same feature, but without the need to party up with a Premium Pass owner. Earning XP, spawning in vehicles released in the expansion, and progression/unlocks will be restricted to Premium Pass owners.

Maps & Modes

  • Soissons: Adjusted Flag D capture area in Frontlines to improve map balance.
  • Nivelle Nights: Fixed a bug where the Out of Bounds grayscale screen-effect would sometimes fail to enable.
  • Nivelle Nights: Fixed an issue where field kits in sector five in a Rush game could be used before the sector was active.
  • Fort de Vaux: Players should no longer be able to get on top of the fort around the courtyard area with Battlefield 1 Update 1.11.

Other Fixes

  • Updated the Map Voting system to exclude the previous map (as well as the current map) from the random selection pool to prevent the possible A-B-A-B map play pattern.
  • Game will now cancel matchmaking whenever backing out of the Operations globe screen. This to prevent a lingering blur state of the globe.
  • Synchronized damage taken effect to the actual shooter networked state. Previously it lead to out of sync effects where the shooter was not yet visible.
  • Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 fixed a rare client crash that could occur when a player joined late and a player just dropped/picked up a weapon.
  • Fixed a disconnect issue that could occur when loading a map.

Premium

  • Premium Friends – Non-Premium players’ score will now show 0 throughout the match on all Scoreboards and End-of-Round screens.

RSP

  • Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 added new setting to allow for limited number of specific kits.
  • Added setting for round time limit multiplier.
  • Added setting for Unlimited Magazines.
  • Countdown stops if players drop: Lowered the required player count for countdown to start game round to the minimum number of players required to finish a game if preround is enabled. The player count is unchanged if preround is disabled.
  • Battlefield 1 Update 1.11 implemented a latency soft lock option where players with a ping higher than 100ms higher get kicked automatically.

UI

  • Fixed issue where the “Player-Created Content” option was grayed-out, unusable, and set to “Hide” after booting the title without a network connection.
  • Fixed the wrong transport driver chase camera caption in the controls UI.
  • The networking issues icons will not show up in Spectator Mode anymore.

Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4 is now available for download

Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is now available for download. The latest update fixed issues related to gameplay, weapons, tweaks/balances, and adjustments to Operations. The update size is around 2.6GB on PS4 and 1.14GB on PC.

What’s new in  Battlefield 1 May Update

Operations

The developers made some adjustments to matchmaking– the first of many – to help mitigate getting matched to an empty server.

With this change, a completed match of Operations will loop back to the same Operation rather than exiting the mode. However, you’ll be on the opposite side of the battlefield. For example, if you started as the French Army in the first Operation, you’ll be on the German side when it loops back after the “End of Operation” screen.

By remaining on the same server with other players, instead of returning to the globe screen, we believe this will reduce the occurrence of being matched into an empty server. In the coming updates, we plan to continue to expand this feature to cycle through a complete Operation playlist.

Premium Friends

  • Premium Friends are coming back again. It will be active as we lead up to EA PLAY.

Maps and Modes

  • Fixed a Spectator Mode bug where the first-person camera could become stuck during the Pigeon Carrier Artillery camera sequence on the Assault Tank.
  • Changed ticket count for Domination to 200 from 100.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC fixed missing game mode description for Operations.
  • Tweaked scoring values for capturing flags in Conquest. Capturing gives less score now, however more capture ticks have been added and the team controlling more than 3 flags than the other team will be awarded Conquest Control bonuses.
  • Decreased the percentage of contribution to flag capture/neutralize from 50% to 30%.
  • Added “Join Any Operation” button to main Operations screen. Will start a matchmaking session to join any available operation at any size (40 or 64).
  • Spectator camera no longer missing from the map on Frontlines, Verdun, and Soissons.

Vehicles

  • Tweaked self-repair for A7V, FT17, St. Chamond, and Pierce Arrow.
  • Reduced health gained per self-repair cycle from 320 to 200.
  • Reduced time taken to complete a self-repair cycle from 8s to 5s: This makes these vehicles’ self-repair equivalent to the self-repair of the MkV Landship.
  • Doubled the health of Field Gun and Stationary AA. Made Field Gun and Stationary AA repairable. Field Gun and Stationary AA will now enter a disabled state at 50% health where they become unusable. To use the weapons again they must be repaired back to 100% with the repair tool.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC increased time that the shell camera is active on the MkV mortar landship from 3.5s to 4.5s. This better suits the increased flight time of the new heavy shell.
  • Changed how max range for AA is applied. Max range now varies depending on the pitch of the gun. Shells can travel a maximum horizontal distance of 300m, and a maximum vertical distance of 450m. This applies to both the stationary AA and the AA truck. Previously AA shells timed out at the same max distance from the gun regardless of direction, resulting in a roughly spherical volume covered by the gun. This means horizontal range was as large as the max height the shells could reach, and that at very high altitudes the AA could cover very little area, even if its range was technically large. The new AA shells will have slightly less horizontal range than before at low altitudes, but they will retain that range all the way to the flight ceiling. This will make AA much more effective against high altitude aircraft without making it able to reach distant, low flying ones as well.
  • Extended Fighter and Attack Plane elevator flap scaling curves to better cover the entire speed range.
  • Reduced cooldown of speed boost ability from 30s to 15s for both the Dogfighter and Airship Buster Attack Plane.
  • Set up rear view on all planes: Albatros, Fokker, Spad, Sopwith, Rumpler, Halberstadt, Salmson, Bristol, Gotha, Caproni. To activate: Hold freelook while in third person to use rear view.

Weapons & Gadgets

  • Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC fixed bug where Bipod Audio could persist when switching to secondary weapon.
  • Tweaked criteria for cross-class medal to require single shot rifles.
  • Added UI for grenade resupply.
  • Reduced the occluder size for the scope glint from 0.25m to 0.15m to hide it behind walls better.

Changes to Bayonet Charge:

  • Activated aiming speed modifier during prepare state as well as charge state. This means a player can rotate a maximum of 50 degrees during the prepare state. Also added an input modifier disabling strafe while charging.
  • Adding subtle boost to third person footsteps when bayonet charging to increase threat awareness. Boosted volume of Enemy VO for Bayonet Charge when close to player.
  • Slightly reduced maximum turn rate while charging.
  • Removed damage reduction while in charge. Weapons will now hit charging players for normal damage.

Gameplay

  • Added a camera shake advanced gameplay option to adjust the amount of camera shake caused by explosions, etc.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC added missing spotting animation when spotting a downed allied soldier as a medic with the Medical Syringe.
  • Automatically show low on ammo icons on friendly soldiers.

Controls

  • Players using controllers can now do custom button/stick mappings.
  • Fixed “Select Operation” button not properly appearing when using the joypad or on console.

UI

  • Moved ping widget to be below the kill log.
  • Fixed an issue in the squad select screen where no squad would be automatically selected for player not part of a squad. The first squad in the list will now be selected by default. Also added support on PC for pressing the space bar to join/leave a squad.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC fixed issue with the flag icons and world icons ghosting when going in and out of the customize screen from the deploy screen.
  • Added ability to disable UGC

Netcode

  • Implemented per region threshold settings for server side hit detection: 130ms for US + Europe, 200ms elsewhere.
  • Fixed server side hit registration interpolation.
  • Leading shot only necessary by the margin above the threshold, e.g. For US @ 150ms ping, you have to lead by 20ms.
  • Fixed latency display for server which is also responsible for decision if to perform client or server side hit registration.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC fixed input offsets for server side hit registration to match client side.
  • Fixed wrong hit indicator display when dying.

Battlefield 1 May Update expected changelog

Recently, DICE shared Battlefield 1 May Update details. The upcoming update may include several game mode changes, the new ability to repair stationary weapons, and netcode improvements.

DICE is expected to release Battlefield 1 May Update on Tuesday, May 30. Here’s everything that was previewed during the live stream. Keep in mind the exact numbers may be changed before the patch becomes active on all live servers.

Bayonet Charge

  • Activated aiming speed modifier during prepare state as well as charge state.
    • This means a player can rotate a maximum of 50 degrees during the prepare state. Also added an input modifier disabling strafe while charging.
  • Adding a subtle boost to third person footsteps when bayonet charging to increase threat awareness. Boosted the volume of Enemy VO for Bayonet Charge when close to the player.
  • Slightly reduced maximum turn rate while charging.
  • Removed damage reduction while in charge. Weapons will now hit charging players for normal damage.

Netcode

  • Tweaked values to reduce the number of kill trades within a 30m radius.
  • Improvements have also potentially fixed the issue with not being able to continuously hit somebody even if they are standing still.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update implemented per region threshold settings for server side hit detection: 130ms for US + Europe, 200ms elsewhere.
  • Fixed server-side hit registration interpolation.
  • Leading shot only necessary by the margin above the threshold, eg. For the US @ 150ms ping, you have to lead by 20ms.
  • Fixed latency display for the server which is also responsible for decision if to perform client or server side hit registration.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update fixed input offsets for server side hit registration to match client side.
  • Fixed wrong hit indicator display when dying.

To explain leading your shots, if you have a ping above 150 ms you have to aim ahead of your target a little bit more to compensate for your lag. This should decrease the number of times you feel you were shot after getting behind cover.

Map and Modes

  • Spectator Mode: Fixed a bug where the first person camera could become stuck during the Pigeon Carrier Artillery camera sequence on the Assault Tank.
  • Changed ticket count for Domination to 200 from 100.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update fixed missing game mode description for Breakthrough.
  • Tweaked scoring values for capturing flags in Conquest. Capturing gives less score now, however, more capture ticks have been added and the team controlling more than 3 flags than the other team will be awarded Conquest Control bonuses.
  • Decreased the percentage of contribution to flag capture/neutralize from 50% to 30%.
  • Added Join Any Operation button to main operations screen. Will start a matchmaking session to join any available operation at any size (40 or 64).

The developers have also changed the end-game lobby process for Battlefield 1’s Operations. You should no longer have to exit to the main menu and re-queue after your current match ends. With this new continuous lobby, you’ll stay with your team and switch sides.

Vehicles

  • Tweaked self-repair for A7V, FT17, St. Chamond, and Pierce Arrow.
  • Reduced health gained per self-repair cycle from 320 to 200.
  • Reduced time is taken to complete a self-repair cycle from 8s to 5s.
  • This makes these vehicles’ self-repair equivalent to the self-repair of the MkV Landship.
  • Increased time that the shell camera is active on the MkV mortar lands from 3.5s to 4.5s. This better fits the increased flight time of the new heavy shell.
  • Extended Fighter and Attack Plane elevator flap scaling curves to better cover the entire speed range.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update reduced cooldown of speed boost ability from the 30s to 15s for both the Dogfighter and Airship Buster Attack Plane.
  • Set up rear view on all planes.
    • Hold freelook while in the third person to use a rear view.

Field Gun and AA Changes:

  • Doubled the health of Field Gun and Stationary AA.
  • Made Field Gun and Stationary AA Indestructible.
  • Field Gun and Stationary AA will now enter a disabled state at 50% health where they become unusable.
  • To use the weapons again they must be repaired back to 100% with the repair tool.
  • Changed how max range for AA is applied.

Changes to Fighter plane variants:

Dogfighter

  • Added new secondary weapon, Incendiary Ammo.
    • Incendiary Ammo does greatly increase damage to plane parts, allowing the dogfighter to quickly cripple an enemy plane by breaking a wing.
  • Changed active ability from emergency repair to speed boost.

Bomber Killer

  • Changed active ability from speed boost to emergency repair.
  • Increased field gun damage against light vehicles.
    • Armored cars will no longer take less damage than light tanks from field gun hits.

Changes to FT Packages

Close Support Tank:

  • Battlefield 1 May Update increased 37mm HE ammo from 4 to 5
  • Replaced Secondary Case shell with Coaxial LMG. These changes should help this tank better fulfill its general purpose role.

Flanker Tank:

  • Increased reload time on the autocannon from 2.5s to 3.75s
  • Increased HE autocannon direct damage from 15-10.5 to 17.5-12.5.

Howitzer Tank:

  • Corrected primary weapon to HMG as shown in customization, was actually LMG. The more powerful HMG should help offset its limited firing arc when compared to the Coaxial LMG of the Close Support Variant.
  • Changed driver secondary weapon from case shell to flamethrower on the A7V Flame Tank Variant. This change will reinforce this variant’s role as a close range tank.
  • Added third person freelook to the FT Howitzer Variant.
    • Missed this one with the other tanks because the normal version has a turret that can rotate 360 anyway.
  • Battlefield 1 May Update added rear firing Tankgewehr as driver secondary weapon for the Tank Hunter Landship Variant.
  • Enabled driving and third person camera while using driver rear guns in the Squad Support and Tank Hunter Landships.
  • Improved MkV Mortar Landship Variant.
    • Changed secondary mortar shell from airburst mortar to the heavy mortar. Heavy mortar does much more damage and is effective against both infantry and vehicles, but has a much longer reload.
  • Replaced alternate smoke and gas mortar shells with track repair and vehicle smoke equipment.
    • These changes should make the mortar Landship more viable as a combat vehicle, rather than sitting in mortar stance in the backline.
  • Fixed a bug with third person aiming at vehicles that caused a bullet to not fire in the correct direction when aiming at soldiers head while they are on a horse.

Gameplay

  • Adding a camera shake advanced gameplay option to adjust the amount of camera shake caused by explosions, etc.
  • Added missing spotting animation when spotting a downed allied soldier as a medic with the Medical Syringe.
  • Automatically show low on ammo icons on friendly soldiers.
  • Made all players immortal during EOR.

Controls

  • Players using controllers can now do custom buttons/sticks mappings.
  • Fixed select Operation button not properly appearing when using the joypad or on the console.

In addition to the patch preview, DICE confirmed that Premium Friends will remain active until EA Play 2017, which begins on June 10. During EA Play 2017, the developers will preview the Russian DLC, In the Name of the Tsar.

Battlefield 1 Spring Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC released with Platoons

Battlefield 1 Spring Update for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is now available for download. The new update brings Platoons as well as new features, new weapon variants, and more.

According to the company, the first wave of Platoons features is added with the Spring Update, and DICE’s focus with the initial release is to add some of the core and most essential Platoons features, such as the Platoon Tag. Check out more details below.

New in Battlefield 1 Spring Update

  • Create & Manage – Any player can create a Platoon; you are however limited to one General role, the highest rank and the rank a Platoon creator starts with, at any one time. When creating a Platoon, you can add the following info:
  • Name – This is required and must be 3-24 characters. Names are not exclusive.
  • Tag – This is required and consists of 1-4 alpha-numerical characters. Tags are not exclusive.
  • Description – This is optional and can be up to 256 characters long. Use this to describe your Platoon however you see fit.
  • Emblem – You can choose an emblem for the Platoon from your own personal Emblem gallery. The emblem is then “copied” to the Platoon, meaning that if you later update your own emblem, it’s not automatically reflected in the Platoon emblem.
  • Access Type – This selection defines how other players can and cannot join your Platoon: Open (anyone can join the Platoon instantly), Apply-to-Join (anyone can apply; Platoon members with permissions can accept or reject applications), Closed (no one can join the Platoon while in this state)

Platoons are currently capped at 100 members, and players can be a member of a maximum 10 Platoons.

More details about Platoons:

  • General – This is the highest Platoon rank and there can only be one General in the Platoon at any one time. The creator will initially get this rank, but can transfer it to someone else (which must be done if you want to leave the Platoon). The General has access to everything, including the option to change name, tag, and even disband the Platoon.
  • Colonel – Colonel is the second-highest rank and has access to most Platoon management tools, such as editing the description, emblem, and the access type. This means they can step in for the General most of the time.
  • Lieutenant – The Lieutenant is the lowest level rank with management permissions. Mainly their ability is to accept or reject Platoon applications, if the Platoon is set to “Apply-to-Join”, as well as link their Rented Servers to the Platoon.
  • Private – Private is the initial rank any new member gets in the Platoon. This rank doesn’t give you access to anything, besides the fact that you are now a member of the Platoon and can represent it and join other members playing. As a rule of thumb, you can always promote someone else to one rank lower than your own, and demote or kick members that are one rank or lower than your own. Rank permissions also always stack, so if you’re promoted you can know for certain that you have the same access as before – and more.
  • Find & Join – Platoons is all about playing together. In the “Find Platoon” section, you will sometimes get a list of recommended Platoons to join, which is currently based on other Platoons that your friends are representing. Once you’ve found a Platoon, its access type will determine how easy it is for you to join. Maybe you can simply join it right away, or you must apply. If you’re unlucky it’s closed, and that’s that.
  • Representing and Playing with Your Platoon – For many players, representing your Platoon is what it’s all about and we have tried to make this process easy, smooth, and awesome with the new system. First, you can always only represent one Platoon at any given time, and you can also choose not to represent any. You will retain your membership and rank in the Platoon; it’s basically just something you toggle. When you represent a Platoon, its tag will automatically be displayed in front of your name and its emblem will automatically be displayed wherever your emblem is usually displayed. This essentially “overrides” your equipped emblem; when you represent a Platoon, we want you to really represent it.

More in Battlefield 1 Spring Update:

New Features

Medic Revive Intent

  • You can now “spot” the dead player to indicate that you are on your way to them. The player will see your name blinking in the death screen and show as “incoming medic”. The medic will also shout that he is coming.

Server Administration

  • Server admins can now add other players to a list to give them admin rights to the server.
  • With Battlefield 1 Spring Update a server can now be set to need lower numbers before pre-round ends (from 20 to 6).
  • We are also adding the ability to use password protected servers.

New Content

Weapons

  • With this update, we’re introducing four new weapon variants – one for each class: Hellriegel 1915 Defensive, Selbstlader 1906 Sniper, Huot Automatic Optical, Martini Henry Sniper

Ribbons

  • With the Battlefield 1 Spring Update we’ve decided to expand the system by adding 19 new Ribbons. The focus with the new Ribbons is to promote teamwork. You will now get Ribbons for performing tasks such as spotting, reviving, resupplying, repairing, healing, and more.

Dog Tags

  • There are five more Dog Tags to get with this update: Battlefest 2017, Answers HQ, Sakura & Murata, Regimental Stein, Play to Give

Battlefield 1 Winter Update download is now available with new features

Battlefield 1 Winter Update is now available for download. The new Battlefield 1 Winter Update bringing back the ever-popular ribbons from previous Battlefield titles. The new max Class Rank is now 50. Also, there will be unlockables on the way to maxing your Class Rank.

There are plenty of other new features and improvements, both big and small, in the Battlefield 1 Winter Update. Check out the full details below.

Battlefield 1 Winter Update Improvements:

MAJOR UPDATE: RIBBONS

You will now be able to collect Ribbons as you play. There are 20 different Ribbons to collect, and each time you get a Ribbon you also receive a 300XP. The Ribbons are designed to promote good teamplay and playing the objective.

It is now possible to unlock an Elite Codex for eight of the available primary weapons in the game. All you need to do is get 500 more kills per applicable weapon. Not only will you get a shiny Elite Codex, but you will also be awarded 25,000 bonus XP. Not bad when you’re chasing those new Class Ranks.

MAJOR UPDATE: CLASS MAX RANKS

The new max Class Rank will now be 50. At every 10 new Class Ranks you’ll receive a Battlepack, and when you hit 50, you will be granted some extra nice Class flair in the kill card to taunt your fallen foes.

On top of this, the update also added the feature to vote for the next map after a match is over. Players on the server will get two options to vote for, and whichever alternative gets the most votes will be the next map. The options will be randomly selected from the server’s map rotation.

Battlefield 1 Update released with lots of changes

DICE has released Battlefield 1 update. The latest Battlefield 1 big Fall update brings long list of changes and improvements to the Battlefield 1 game.

One of the major changes has to do with the Operations mode, which is new for Battlefield 1. The attacking side loses too often, so DICE is boosting the number of tickets for that side. Now player can also customize solider from within the UI. The patch also introduces rent-a-server support, while the ability to buy Battlepacks with real money is “coming soon.” Battlefield 1 update is around 2.2 GB.

Battlefield 1 November 15 Update Changlog:

Operations Changes:

Going forward we are addressing the balance issues with the Operations game mode. It’s clear that attackers need a boost. To increase the effectiveness of the attacking team, we are increasing the overall tickets for both Operations & Grand Operations. In addition, we are also making it somewhat easier to capture sectors as an attacker by reducing the amount of time it takes to capture a flags in Operations & Grand Operations. We’ve also increased the minimum tickets regained in grand operations to from 30 to 50, as well as increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders. This will give more of a fighting chance to capture the next sector after previously capturing a sector while having very few tickets left.

64 player

  • Increase attacker maximum tickets from 150 to 250
  • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
  • Increased the amount of minimum ticket regained when capturing a sector in 64p Operations from 30 to 50.
  • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.

40 player

  • Increase attacker maximum tickets to 200 from 150
  • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
  • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.

CONQUEST CHANGES:

We’ve listened to your feedback in regards to the Suez Conquest layout in regards to balance. We will be adding two more flags to the layout, this should result in one team not being able to capture and lock down all flags as easy as before. In addition, we also noticed that it was very difficult to re-capture flags within the capture areas located in the village areas. To solve this we’ve reduced the capture size of these areas to include less buildings. The result of this should make the flags somewhat easier to capture and make sure that a team that has lost and been pushed out of the villages can easier re-capture them and get back into the fight. In addition, to help a team that has been pushed back all the way to their HQ, we’ve added an armored car that players can use to break out of the HQ and flank the opposing team.

  • Added two additional flags on the Suez map, giving it a total of 5 flags.
  • Added 1 armored car for either team to spawn in their HQ.
  • Reduced the size of the capture volumes on the flags located in the villages, old A & B flag. This is to reduce the amount of building interiors located within the capture area. The change should result in the flags being easier to capture.
  • You can customize your soldier from within the UI by selecting either the icon on Home or on Soldier
  • If the squad leader ignores requests for orders the leadership is transferred to another member of the squad.
  • When a squad member requests an order (and there is no active squad order), the requesting player is added to the want-to-be-leader queue for that squad and a 60 seconds timer starts (the timer is not reset if there are other squad members waiting in the queue already).
  • When the 60 seconds pass, the first member in the squad queue (the one who requested order earliest) is promoted as a squad leader. If there are other members in the queue after him, the timer is automatically reset to 60 seconds and if the new leader doesn’t give orders over that period either, then the next waiting in line is promoted and so on.
  • If the current squad leader issues an order, then the queue for the squad is cleared.
  • Equal weather in Rush. Now uses same weather sequence and trigger conditions for both rounds in a match
  • Changed default player count of operations to 64 from 40
  • Made the pigeon visible from a longer distance in the War Pigeon game mode
