Hey PC fans,
We’re rolling out a Call of Duty: Black Ops Dedicated Server Patch over the next few hours or so which will require each server to be restarted.
The patch addresses some bugs associated with Player Kicking / Reserved Slots. This shouldn’t affect the day-to-day interactions for most players. But for players who experienced abnormal game behavior as a result of reserved slot kicking functionality, this is now resolved.
There were two main problems which occurred under very specific circumstances:
- The player being kicked would sometimes see a temporary rank reset, which could cause other strange behavior with contracts, create-a-class, emblems, etc.
- When a player is kicked from a reserved slot, one of the remaining players could experience strange behavior (spawn with no weapon, "rubber banding", or checkerboard textures).
The 2nd case only occurred with reserved slot usage on an otherwise full server.
The client Black Ops PC Patch 1.07 is still in development, and will be much more comprehensive.
More details on that still to come.
