General stability fixes

Improved JIP (“Join in Progress”) rules for Social playlists

Added thresholds that will prevent JIP in Social playlists depending on the remaining score to victory, score differences between teams in a match, and time remaining in the match. These are tuned on a per-game-mode basis with the goal of reducing negative JIP experiences.

Fixed a number of exploits for Warzone
Fixed ability to get inside bases to contest
Fixed ability to get under the world
Fixed ability to destroy the core when you should not be able to
Fixed an issue where the red team shield door would sometimes not have proper collision

BTB Assault matches now group properly under their own category in the Service Record

Fixed an issue where REQ currency would sometimes not recharge properly when joining in progress to Warzone modes

Fixed an issue where players who JIP’ed into Warzone games were not leveling up

Fixed an issue where JIP’ing players sometimes caused momentary hitches

Added a fix for the “black screen” bug (We believe this is addressed, and will be monitoring closely - please let us know if you experience this issue post-patch)

Fixed a bug in which banned players could continue to play matches

Fixed a bug where March on Stormbreak and Battle of Noctus home bases did not have player collision

Fixed a rare crash players could hit if they died while picking up power-ups

Increased the cooldown time on the Banshee's flip maneuver
