Rule Changes: 3 (v35305)

Free Pros: Assault, Combat Girl, Karl, Gunner, Tank, Wascot

This is the last week for PAX East 2012 uniforms and TF2 throwback gear!

It's the Rule Changes of Iroquoi county. Once you've seen one Rule Changes, you haven't seen them all.

This week we really focused on the player experience of getting into a game. We've made the process of getting into a game by yourself or with friends much more clear. We've fixed some issues that caused certain players to queue much longer than they should. This should improve everyone's speed and chance of getting into a good game!

As always, feel free to leave us feedback at! If you have issues please email
The current version is: 35305. If you don't have this version, please restart your game.
