Postby Adila » Sat 13 Feb, 2021 8:16 pm

Preamble:
Wanted to fix some old bugs that people brought up right after the new patch was introduced and fixes some of the issues with the new maps. Minor balance changes were also made after some discussion.

Credits:
Maps fixes by Swift, bug fixes thanks to all those who sent in reports and gameplay. Also thanks to everyone on discord for their ideas, suggestions, and general support.
