PC Product Update 8

New Features
• Chickey Gear for all Pros
• Added timer countdown to two minutes until end game / Overtime

Balance and Adjustments
• Changed end game rules so that Overtime only triggers if both Moneyballs have the same health when time runs out. If Moneyball healths are not equal, whichever team has the Moneyball with higher health will win.

• Increased damage done to players by all levels of LaserBazer Turrets
• Greatly reduced juice given by LazerBlazer Turret fire
