The new feature will allow players to set up teams at any time during a game. Players can then apply to join an existing team or create their own. All the necessary controls are available from the in game options menu. A player’s team affiliation is indicated by the team letter next to their name. A capital “B” for example means, that the player is a member of team B. A lowercase “b” means that the player has applied for team B but has not been accepted yet.
Units do not exert zone of control (where units can not move freely in the vicinity of other units) over friendly units nor can they attack them. Team members do also loose and gain points together when a player is defeated in a rated game.
We are very excited about this new feature and can’t wait to see the first teams in the wild!
The update is scheduled for 6pm CET (see it in your time zone…)
