Great patch notes. Game is most certainly headed in the right direction. Very glad you are listening to your community and providing what is truly needed for an amazing game in the BR genre.

I’ve put in a request/application to assist with content creation / promotion of the game using the gaming/streaming community I’ve created. We would love to be a part of the help for this game! If any dev/pr/comm manager would hit me up, would love to have a chat. Keep up the great work!
