  • This rating will be assigned to players once they complete their first match
  • ATHENA Rating leaderboard is added on the home screen in-game (note that this leaderboard updates every 10-20 minutes)
  • ATHENA Rank is derived from the ATHENA Rating and is displayed as an icon beside the persona name which allows players to know roughly what level of ATHENA Rating another player has
  • Players who have beginner status will not have an ATHENA Rating

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Currently some players are unable to enter into matches on the map: “Khyber Stronghold” a fix for this has been found and is scheduled for implementation in update 0.13.2
  • Currently, players who leave a match are supposed to be replaced by players of a similar ghost rank; however, players frequently aren’t able to be replaced, which can lead to an imbalanced match – this will be resolved in a future update
  • Currently players whose passwords include special characters (used in various langauges) are unable to fully log into the game via the launcher; however, they will simply be directed to the client page where they will receive an error stating: “Invalid Username/Email or Password” at which point they simply need to log in as normal within the client
