Beachhead posts FAQ for Clan Challenges; feature now live

Published

on

Beachhead has posted a FAQ on the new ‘Clan Challenges’ feature coming to ELITE real soon. This feature can be seen currently under ‘Compete’, but no challenges are posted yet.

This feature is a highly anticipated feature for many Clans, and appears to be going live soon. But according to some people, they see that the Clan Challenges section is already populated. As of now, I cannot see anything in the section.

Hit after the break for screenshots and the FAQ of Clan Challenges!

1. What are Clan Challenges?
Clan Challenges are milestones for Clans with at least one Premium member based off of specified MW3 accolades or stats that can earn Clan XP rewards and badges for your Clan. Clan Challenges are split into two types: Daily and Weekly and must be enlisted in by your Free or Premium Clan Leader.

Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for Clan Challenges.  When the Clan Leader enlists in a Clan Challenge, only the clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will count.
2. How do I participate in Clan Challenges?
In order to participate in Clan Challenges, your Clan Leader will have to enlist your Clan on the Clan Challenges Details page, found in the Compete section.

Note: Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Clan Challenge.

3. Who is eligible to participate in Clan Challenges?
Free and Premium members are eligible to participate in Clan Challenges so long as the Clan has a minimum of one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment.  Only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.

For example:  If a Clan Leader enlists at 9am PDT for a Clan Challenge that begins at 12pm PDT, only members who were already in the clan before 9am PDT will count.  If a member joins this clan at 10am PDT, they would not be counted.  However, this clan member would be eligible for subsequent Clan Challenges.
4. What are Daily Clan Challenges?
Daily Clan Challenges allow your Clan to earn Clan XP and badges by earning specific MW3 accolades.  Daily Challenges must be enlisted in by your Clan Leader in the Program Guide found in the Compete section.  Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Daily Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.

For example, the Efficiency Daily Clan Challenge allows your Clan a chance to earn 3 different tiers of Clan XP and badges according to how many Sharpshooter Accolades your Clan earns between the Start time and End Time.

5. What are Weekly Clan Challenges?
Weekly Clan Challenges allow your clan a chance to earn Clan XP and badges for reaching cumulative MW3 milestones of total kills, assists or score. Weekly Challenges must be enlisted in by your Clan Leader in the Program Guide found in the Compete section.  Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Weekly Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.

For example, the Rampage Weekly Clan Challenge allows your Clan a chance to earn 3 different tiers of Clan XP and badges according to how many Kills your Clan earns between the Start time and End Time.

6. Why aren’t certain members of my clan counting?
Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.
7. Will my participation count if I join a Clan during a Clan Challenge?
No, you must be in a clan that includes at least one Premium member before the time of enlistment for your participation to count.
8. Can I see my performance during a Clan Challenge?
Your performance in a Clan Challenge will usually be updated at various intervals throughout its duration on the Clan Challenges Details Page.
9. How long does it take for Clan XP and Badges to be awarded?
Typically, Clan XP and Badging can take up to 48 hours to be awarded but in some cases may take longer.
10. Do I need to be in the same match as my fellow Clan Members to participate in Clan Challenges?
No, you can contribute to a Clan Challenge with or without being in the same match as your fellow Clan Members.
11. How do I know if my clan is enlisted for a Clan Challenge?
You can confirm that your Clan is enlisted by checking the Clan Challenge detail page.  Your clan will show up as “Enlisted” if enlisted or “Not Enlisted” if your Clan is not enlisted.
12. Can my Clan Leader enlist after a Clan Challenge has started?
No, your Clan Leader must enlist before a Clan Challenge starts.
13. Where can I see how my Clan performed in a Clan Challenge?
Following the end time of a Clan Challenge, you can see how your Clan performed by selecting the Clan Challenge badge in your Clan Showcase and on the Clan Challenges Details Page.

15. Where can I find out the start and end times of a Clan Challenge?

16. What happens if you change how Clan Challenges work?
Like the other features of the Elite service, we will be regularly trying to improve and refine Clan Challenges. Check back with this FAQ from time to time.  This is one of the places where you’ll be able to find out about any significant changes that are made to Clan Challenges.

Apex Legends: how to activate the Season 9 Arena teaser

Apex Legends data miners have found out how players can activate a new Season 9 teaser. Here’s how to see it for yourself.

Apex Legends Season 9 Teaser Arena

The Apex Legends Season 9 teaser is now live, revealing the mystery behind the mysterious platform in the Firing Range.

After the halfway split for Season 8, players noticed a stranged platform implemented on the left side of the Firing Range map.

For weeks players were unaware of its purpose, but finally, the mystery has been uncovered and is associated with the new upcoming Arena mode.

Season 9 Teaser Arena

Data miner @GarretLeaks was among the few who leaked how players can activate the button found on the Firing Range platform.

GarretLeaks has even created a step by step guide of how players can experience the Season 9 Arena teaser, which will be available April 20th:

  • Step 1: Collect keycard from care packages (available now)
  • Step 2: Find Holosprays scattered around Kings Canyon
  • Step 3: Find Holosprays scattered around Olympus
  • Step 4: Press the phone in the lobby and listen to the audio
  • Step 5: Press the button on the Firing Range platform and wait for the ship (available on April 20th)

The Corrupted Keycards are now live and available to pick up from Care Packages in-game for both Kings Canyon and Olympus. On the 20th, players will then be able to scan the Holosprays and activate the teaser.

Dataminer @Shrugtal released images of where players will be able to find these Holosprays, which are located in various locations across the two maps.

You can scan multiple Holosprays in one match and even scan all three over multiple matches. It seems the Holosprays will spawn in all the locations highlighted in Shrugtal’s image.

Along with this, fellow data miner @Biast12 has also released a video showing what happens after activating the button in the Firing Range.

The video shows Biast boarding a ship after activating the button. Biast arrives at a new location where another button awaits, which activates an elevator. This then takes you into a small arena where a massive hollo of future Legend Ash is shown along with a voice line that states, “The Arena awaits.”

This is clearly a teaser for the upcoming 3v3 mode ‘Arena,’ which will be arriving in Season 9. However, this is also a teaser for the future legend, Ash. Although Ash will likely be arriving at a later Season – more like Season 10 – it does confirm that she will be arriving sooner than later.

In fact, it’s not the first time an announcer for a game mode has eventually become a playable Legend. Back in Season 3, the Shadow Fall game mode saw Revenant as the announcer, who later became a playable Legend in Season 4.

If this stays true to the format, Ash could be the new Legend for Season 10, after being an announcer for the previous season much like the introduction of Revenant. Players will be able to activate this teaser towards the end of Season 8.

How to get Fortnite’s new double-movement

You can try out double-movement in Fortnite with a mouse and keyboard, thanks to some third-party software that hasn’t been banned.

Double movement in Fortnite

Epic Games have gotten rid of the double-movement keybinds for Fortnite, but you can still make use of a third-party software to achieve the same function in the game.

One major advantage to playing Fortnite with a controller is that the joystick makes it much easier for you to strafe in one direction while looking elsewhere. Playing with a keyboard and mouse restricts your movement to four directions; front, back, left, or right.

This limitation can be frustrating, as it keeps you from being able to full-sprint while minding your surroundings. A few players used “double movement” keybinds to get around this until Epic Games removed them.

Fortnite Season 6

As the name implies, these would allow you to bind one of your movement inputs to two keys, so that you could achieve “controller movement.” Epic Games then banned this practice in-game by limiting movement input mapping to a single key.

However, Fortnite streamer BenjyFishy revealed to his followers that he used ReWASD and Keys2xInput to get around this issue, as Epic can’t ban them. He made sure to check with devs before adding it to his gameplay.

This implies that he got permission to use it, and you can also take advantage of it to get double movement when playing with a mouse and keyboard.

You can get a free trial of ReWASD, but will then have to pay for it each month after the trial ends. However, Keys2xInput is completely free, and will likely be the first choice for anyone who wants to try double-movement for the first time.

YouTuber itsJerian made an insightful video tutorial on how to set up these two programs, so you can check that one out for details about getting them to work.

While using third-party software for double-movement can seem tricky, it’s not as messy as it sounds. These programs simply emulate an ability that controller players already have, so that you can use it on your mouse and keyboard.

So far, Epic Games haven’t chimed in on this matter, and we don’t know for sure whether or not they plan to take action against this, but things look fine at the moment.

Players like BenjyFishy have contacts at Epic, so it’s likely that they were given the green light to use these programs, and you can try them out too.

Apex Legends devs announce commitment to fixing major server issues

The issue of server and net code problems has consistently caused problems for Apex Legends. However, a new dev blog is on the way.

Published

apex legends net code server issues

Apex Legends has had ongoing problems with server and net code issues. However, it does seem that they are trying their best to communicate with the community and plan improvements.

Over the last two years, Apex Legends players have experienced severe server and net code issues that many have complained about since release.

Of course, these issues are extremely complicated and won’t be fixed overnight. However, more communication between the developers and the community could bring light and positivity to the manner, allowing a better understanding of the ongoing issues.

Apex Legends server locations

Apex Legends director of communications, Ryan K. Rigney (@RKRigney on Twitter), revealed that he had been working with the Apex engineers to create a new developer blog concerning, “servers, net code, and tickrate.”

We have seen similar dev blog posts in the past concerning patch notes, future updates, and the most recent video with Jason McCord concerning Apex Legends hackers and cheaters.

This new dev blog is said to be coming out in two weeks and will attempt to acknowledge and explain the “biggest issues” concerning servers, net code, and tick rate, as well as “exploring recent/upcoming improvements.”

Ryan Rigney says he is expecting a mixed reaction, mainly because he knows players want overnight fixes for all Apex Legends server issues – which aren’t possible. The dev blog won’t promise “revolutionary changes immediately,” but it will allow better insight and communication with the community.

Pro Apex Legends player, NRG Rogue, responded to his tweets, essentially stating that it will not satisfy the community of the “14-24-year-old Apex Legends market.”

Just like Rogue, who says he is not “too techy” in understanding such issues, the majority of the community are likely to be similar. The information offered may be overlooked, or not fully understood.

Either way, more communication between the devs and engineers for Apex Legends can hardly be negative, so we look forward to seeing the information provided.

For more news on Apex Legends and the upcoming War Games event, arriving today at around 10am PST and 6pm GMT, stay tuned on Charlie Intel.
