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.
