This build has not been seen in a public branch.

With the IVRL qualifiers now finished, it's now time for the moment we have all been waiting for, in just under a month the IVRL finals will be held in Miami! With this in mind, we are working extremely hard to make sure the stability of the game only keeps improving, by focusing mainly on performance improvements, bug fixing, and gameplay balancing.

And remember all feedback is welcome, your input directly affects what we do next.
