    Can't wait! Also will it be covering items, and strategies concerning them. You see way too many new players just bomb spamming the moment they get money and not actually achieving anything with them.

    *Newb throws bomb, I sit there standing by it and grab it and throw it back in the last second killing them, good times*

    Anyway single player sounds really good at the moment, I hope it's not just random tutorials for items or stuff and more like save the princess with some cool iconic (sorta) epic boss battles like skinney said.
    Also DO NOT FORGET DINOSAURS @Skinney <3, I have seen the entities list and I we all are pumped for the dinosaurs you are totally going to put in it as some boss.

    If you crumble into the demands for dinosaurs that the whole of the kag community has been eagerly waiting for I will do the cinnamon challenge and the Ice bucket challenge at the same time !

    Eh, I don't see it as too bad. Could probably be better, but...

    I'm gonna take some screenshots and edit them in.

    EDIT: Edited them in.

    yuck. But I'm talking along the lines of queues for servers and a refresh button that works.

    Ah, I assumed you meant more from a visual standpoint instead of a change of functions.

    I really don't think so.
    A) I prefer the current title screen art
    B) One of the main things they changed is the server browser, which looks a lot worse imo. I really don't like how the different types of servers have different colors of text rather than the current different colors of buttons.
    C) They improved the quickjoin. I don't think quickjoin should even exist. Honestly this game is too small right now for quickjoin, there's only like 10 active servers. I say you should make people use the server browser. The only improvements I think it could use is putting the "active players" symbol and the gamemode symbol where the favorite star is now.

    Also if you could look at the playercount out of max players without having to click on the server to check that would be nice

    @Geti If you do change the trap blocks usage, can you please give access to a block which is like how the trap block is now, except it can only be used in map creation. They are a nice block used in TDM maps in my opinion, which would be ruined if both players can walk through them.

    No, because that means more load time, more files to collect dust and more confusion - HOWEVER I'll build a rules flag to reverse the change, and set it by default into TDM (and obviously it can be used elsewhere if you want it, including in modded CTF for "old trap blocks"). I honestly hate doing this because of performance issues with checking flags like this constantly, but it's a contentious enough issue that I'd rather have a simple switch for to avoid this kind of backlash :)

    Also regarding the menu and its info i think the search for player option is broken or only works for some people..

    You could make a wesnoth type of display where it shows everyone online and the game theyre in, but I don't know how diffucult thatd be able to get to work / worth the time.
