General

  • War:
    • Changed turret projectiles in War from physical projectiles to use hitscan detection. This should help performance in War, with fewer objects being spawned in the world.

    • Shortened the AFK warning message from 20mins to 15mins.
    • Shortened the AFK disconnect from 25mins to 20mins.
  • World Queue:
    • We added a confirmation screen when a player attempts to leave the queue for a world, asking the player to confirm if they’re intending to leave the queue.
