For Honor's Warrior's Den Livestream Updates - Mar 21 2017

It has been just over a month since For Honor released and there's been several minor updates and changes for the game over the weeks, which are first announced and talked about in the Warrior's Den Weekly Livestream.

Apart from updates, they also do developer interviews,  play matches with the community, showcase fan art and do some giveaways.

I haven't watched these videos till the latest one on March 21 and I thought it's a good way to engage the community.

Here's the full video..

If you don't have the patience to watch the whole vid, let me break down the important news & updates for you..

You can join the rewards program on their site to win some cool prizes, one of which includes this For Honor branded coffee, made in collaboration with Death Wish Coffee.

The Game Director, Damien Kieken, also came on the show to give some updates..

1) Troubleshooting your NAT Connection

Basically, there are 3 types of NAT types; Open, Moderate & Strict. In this article, it explains that NAT Types doesn't affect gameplay in most situations, it does affect matchmaking making it longer for players with Strict NAT to find a game. You can use the links in the article to help solve that issue by changing to an Open NAT.

I'm on Moderate NAT so hopefully this will work for me.

2) Two and a Half Years to unlock Everything!

Haha, this was actually in response to the Reddit post about how it would take Two and a half years to earn enough Steel Credits to unlock all customization items available, for all 12 heroes.

Damien's argues that like most Online RPG games, the goal isn't to unlock all items but just your favourite ones.

Well, I have to admit he is right but of course the completionist in us gamers will want to get them all. Looking at how much the items cost (real money or steel credits), and considering how slow it is to earn them, I haven't entertained the idea of unlocking everything..

3) New Content

New Gear, Maps and more will be released with the New Season..
Ranked Mode is also something they are working on..
New Outfits might be coming as early as this week, Elite Outfit was mentioned..
New Viking Map will be out in Thursday's patch.

4) Hero Balancing

Lawbringer & Berserker are mentioned to get some changes

5) Community Order

A New Community Order with a reward of 2000 Steel Credits will be active this weekend!

That's about all for updates this week.. After that, they had a Dev Tester play some matches with the community and lastly, they showed off some fan art and creations. Rather cool stuff!

There are hosting a Giveaway on Reddit with some very, very cool stuff to win!

Would love to win some of these but I don't have a Reddit account, haha!

Looking forward to the new unlockables even though I don't have the Steel for them. Didn't even have the Steel for the previous new stuff that they released..

Very cool stuff but I am saving up for some Outfits and after that I need to max out my Gear! Also for SEA players, do check out this Online Tournament happening tomorrow. I'm really enjoying this game and hope to see you guys online as well..
