The bots are especially important here, since the game has a depressingly small player base. It didn’t manage to take off the same way their previous brainchild did, so even the regulars can have a tough time finding people to play with. Thankfully, bots will now fill empty spaces on a server, moving aside when actual players appear. Here’s the full changelog:

Major Changes:
  • 2 Arena maps: The Pit and Old Arena
  • Bot assisted servers
    • Bots will auto-populate the server once a player spawns in
    • Bots leave/join as players leave/join to max out the player count
    • Bots don’t prevent players from selecting a class if a class limit is set on the server
    • Bots are removed at end of each match
  • 3 Abilities
    • Alchemancer Depth Charge: Release a series of explosions in front of you
    • Vypress Pincer – A Brutal melee attack that takes a long time to wind-up but delivers a crushing blow to a single enemy

  • Taurant Sword: a new sword + multiple skins
