Brink PC: Stats Site and game update live!

Starting today, PC players can track their stats on the Brink stats site located at http://battle.brinkthegame.com/ (for info on getting started, visit the site’s FAQ page). Additionally, a new PC update has gone live on Steam. Some of the highlights are below:

  • Server admins can set up a custom welcome message for their server that will show up on the loading screen when players connect
  • Fixed Aquarium map from logging only one objective as being completed
  • Incremented networking protocol
  • Added objective timing info to the Stopwatch review screen
  • Fixed player nametags disappearing despite not being affected by flashbang
  • Fixed having a players’ weapon stuck in iron-sights for the entire refire duration when needing to perform an auto-reload
  • Added support for showing player health bars for spectators when looking at the player
  • Fixed issue with caltrop models not always being updated properly
  • Added automatic scrolling when typing in chat boxes
  • Added ability for spectators to watch a current objective’s progress
  • Server admins can increase the defending team’s spawn timers in Stopwatch
  • Players can verify people’s Steam identities so they can verify people’s Steam IDs
  • Spectators can see player names colored by team (red vs. blue) rather than white
  • New filter capability so players can view by their preferred server type which translates into dedicated servers offering better performance
  • Now force a refresh of the notifications screen each time it is activated
  • Hacking terminals are now easier for the attacking team
  • Added 10 seconds to each defending team’s spawn time in Stopwatch mode
  • Fixed issue with caltrop models not always being updated properly

That’s all for now. As soon as we have more information on the titles updates for PS3 & 360, as well as the release date for Agents of Change, we’ll let everyone know.

  1. Ahh, little disappointed that it doesn’t seem to reflect stats from the 50+ hours I played before the rollout of stats.

  2. Well for me who plays on Xbox and who doesn’t give a damn about Stats and Rankings this is dissapointing…
    At least you let us know that there’s still somebody working on Brink :/

  3. Despite all the whining on forums about the patch, there are some who appreciate the changes. If anyone at splash damage is reading this, not everyone hates it.

  4. Hi,
    nice changes but there are still a LOT of people that are worried about the PC stats page. It still doesn’t work for me, too.
