NVF & saturnalia JPs will be on py'numbra

new synergy - parasitic impetus

2 - 15% reload time reduction

3 - 15% damage boost

4 - on dodge roll, gain parasitic contagion for 10 seconds (cooldown 15 seconds)
parasitic contagion - grants 15% life and shield steal & all rounds infect enemies.

50% patron boost to score

pvp matches - medal rewards provide PG. silver medal rewards 5 PG, gold medals provide 15 PG. possible to gain 45 PG per PVP match (3 gold medals).

season 2 crystal springs missions will be addressed. quest giver and teleporter should be visible.

ex inanis is planned to rotate every 2-3 months. PG is being reviewed for arkbreaks and co-ops for future PG rewards. arkforge payouts are being monitored and reviewed. redundant cyber chips are being reviewed. hoverbike has been reviewed; its sounds and skid marks are fixed. co-ops are being reviewed so they can be started easier.

lower priority arkfalls and arkbreaks are now in rotation since the events are not spawning major arkfalls. abominable warmaster is being reviewed and once his PG rewards are adjusted, he may appear. unused weapon models are being reviewed for possible inclusion. apocalypse rocket launcher's collision detection is under review. backpack synergies are under review for AA and GA. spawn rate for py'number is under review.

Did they give a date on when we will see this? Or will it be at the same time as Synergy changes?

The PVP change will be part of the 9/5 update. That block of information is separate from the reviews and considerations given later in the video

I like this new syn just hope these shrill feeders aren't weak as the ones spawned from the epidemic syn.

They're a bit different. I listed this above. These shrill feeders can spread the infection and the weapons are capable of infecting multiple targets at once

Great thread Lexxy! I apologize everyone for the lack of PTS patch notes, as I have been at Gamescom, and will be at PAX as well this coming weekend. I would like to call out that the release date for this update has been changed to 9/6, due to the game shows. Thanks again for posting this information!
