This is mostly a quality of life update including some foundations for updates to come.
- Your handedness preference is now synced across devices (as well as your jersey number)
- Left handed players will now see their character hold the stick left handed in the main menu
- Left handedness is now synced in parties in the main menu display as well
- Premium players now unlock the blue glowing 'Premium' title automatically. You can set it in Player -> Titles.
- Created a popup for when you unlock titles (only premium atm, more planned for other things).
- Added titles to the end-game scoreboard
- Titles now have more appropriate sizing and spacing on the scoreboards and in the title selection interface
- Created a system for the artists to hide ears on jersey cosmetics (to support hooded capes like 'hooded').
- Added three capes: clawed, hooded and royal cloak (one of which will be exclusive on our Patreon, voting happening now)
- Added alien hands and antennas, superstar cosmetic
- Added two variants for mittens, 9 for fishbowl
- Re-added proper sanitizing of usernames (bug where you could make your username a different color).
- Fixed an issue where if you're banned the ban message would disappear after the loading screen
- Fixed an issue with our chat filter that would fail to catch vAriATioNs iN CapITaliSaTioN
- Took down the holiday decorations in the locker room
- Created a bunch more internal tooling to help us resolve support issues, organize things and moderate the game
What we are working on
- There's more experimentation with taking down the bumping meta and some rotational speed unfairness between input devices (this is progress towards ranked)
- I'm working on a code redemption system in the shop which will help with giveaways and marketing to increase the player base (e.g. we can give influencers and organizations a code in the shop to get a jersey with their logo)
- We have a developer working on a first draft of bots for the game. Still early stages but it's looking promising.
- The artists are working on several simpler cosmetics that we'll be giving away for free later as rewards for logging in and other things
