Patchnotes via Steam Community

Hello there. The long waited update is finally here and we will be focusing on that mostly in this week's devlog.

Weekly wipe server changing to bi-weekly

Players who enjoy playing on servers that are wiped frequently. We felt like one week was too short a time and those servers are very unpopulated so we wanted to extend the wipe cycle by a week to give more time to play on a single cycle. We will be changing them to only wiping them every other week to give more time to play before wiping.
