The latest Closed Beta patch is out for Hi-Rez’s team-based shooter Paladins, and aside from the usual fixes and tweaks, they’ve added Challenge Matches and an Experimental Queue.

Challenge matches can be accessed via the main play screen. To enter a challenge match, you’ll need to be the leader of a party of five. Select the Challenge queue, enter a game name, and select a server. Once that’s done an opposing party can select your game from the queue, starting the match.

The Experimental Queue adds two new, more casual modes to the game:

Assault Mode: Instead of having to capture points, Siege Engines will continually spawn, alternating between teams.
Capture Point: There’s no Siege Engine or push phase. Instead, teams will fight each other to be the first to capture five points.

Fixes and small changes also dropped with Patch 11. For a full list of changes, head over to the Paladins forum.

  1. I had two beta keys for about a month now and I just started an hour ago. Uninstalled after one match. This comes from a person who isn’t picky about games.

  2. Game got some ways to go for a lot of people. I do like it but you can only do so much capping and so much siege over and over again. I do like it but there needs to be 3 or 4 more other game modes to go with this game and also it wouldn’t be so bad to have some modes where you can play same person more than once kinda like how some other games do it, but considering its a moba based game I don’t think that will happen.

  3. I was so hyped about this game and once I was ingame, its really boring !! i cant play 2 games in a row, I always exit the game efter i have done 1 game.

  4. Got to play this game like a week ago, was hyped, but once in game it really is boring, well characters are good but skills kinda sucks and the attack ughhhhh….
