    Hey Folks!

    You can now support the game through Patreon over here!
    [​IMG]


    We're excited to bring you the first build with Patreon features! :thumbs_up:

    We've been working towards unveiling this for a while and we can't wait to hear what you think.

    Some features are still a little rough, but the bulk of the lower tier patreon features are there:
    • Royal Guard Cape Armour Set (available in customisation settings)
    • Extra Head Packs (Also Available as Steam DLCs)
    • Priority Join (2 "Above Capacity" Slots for Supporters)
    • Exclusive Discord Roles + supporter-only channel
    Still to come is the custom heads for top-tier supporters, and making sure the integration is production ready - but we won't know the latter until we've tested it at proper volume! ::):

    Free to Play is coming!

    This build is part of the march towards a Sustainable, Open, F2P KAG that has been happening behind the scenes.

    F2P should significantly increase the accessibility of the game and help the player population. All current paid players will retain all current access, all Steam DLC will continue to function, and there will NOT be pay to win microtransactions - nothing to fear :flex:

    More info on that soon as details are worked out! There's an overview of our current plans on the patreon page for those interested.

    Business as Usual - More Improvements

    This build also contains several bounty, feature, tweak and translation changes, with more on their way soon!

    A quick overview (check the changelog for full details):
    • Updated Accolades for recent Community Tournaments
    • Player Heads in Scoreboard to ease identification of players in-game
    • KDR always rendered to 2 decimal places
    • Mapcycle Cleanup is underway at the moment, with more active cycling of older maps happening through #democracy on Discord
    • TDM map tweaks
    • Spanish Translation fixes
    • Chinese and Japanese translations in the works (see github)

    There's also a further 10 pull requests waiting on github for review before the next build, more mapcycle changes coming, and a lot of community development and discussion happening day to day. If you're not already, jump in The Official KAG Discord and get involved with #democracy, #development, #mapping and #testing!

    Have Fun!

    It is on Steam. You can check on Discord; the Discord announcements always link to the THD- and Steam forum post.

    @Mazey At the time of posting, you did not do the announcement. Also, why isn't it updating under Steam KAG's "Recent News" area? That reply was from ~3 hours ago.

    Didn't update there because Geti didn't post on Twitter. Fixing.

    Unless you didn't mean the launcher news. If you're talking about the thing you click called Recent news or something (ones shown when you update the game) - then those are always broken.
