Product Update - Valve
Jun 13, 2013
Patch 1.20

New Features
New playable ‘Naut: Ayla! This devious little girl is voiced by Ashly Burch!

Major fixes
- New players now get a lower rating and league in the leaderboards, so that they start in league 9 (or sometimes maybe league 8) instead of in league 5. This rating decrease gradually disappears in their first 30 matches. This counts total matches finished in ALL seasons, not per season.
- Since this changes the scores of all new players, a new Season is started, making the previous Season extremely short!
- Matches now update their league based on who is in the match. So if a match is started by a league 3 player and then a league 1 player joins, the match changes into a league 2 match, instead of remaining a league 3 match as before.
- Made some improvements in Season transition code, hopefully fixing the issue that some people were shown in the leaderboard as if they had played a very large number of matches and had a very low win percentage.
- Fixed that an incorrect leave penalty was sometimes applied.
- Fixed that anti-cheat code would sometimes incorrectly think there was a speedhack happening and would then quit the game.

Minor fixes
- Fixed some text errors
- Roof thickness of the core on Aiguillion is now the same as on the other maps
- When the bottom turret on Aiguillion gets destroyed you will no longer be shoved to the side when standing above it in the neutral zone
