Y3S3.1 Patch Notes

09/17/2018 12:00 PM

The first patch after the season launches is generally a much lighter patch. As such, you will not see the same level of fixes as a Season launch. Patch Y3S3.1 deploys to PC on Tuesday, September 18th, and Console on Wednesday, September 19th.

Team kill Bans

The team killing penalty for a first offense will be adjusted from a kick to a 30 minute ban. Initially, if a player was team killed in Casual, the offender was kicked from the match. The same situation in Ranked would result in a kick as well, but also triggered an abandon penalty. This was confusing because it seemed as if the team killing punishment was different between Ranked vs Casual.

The new breakdown is as follows:

  • First offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes
  • Second offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 1 hour
  • Third offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours.
  • Fourth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours.
  • Fifth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days.
