We'll also be playing with players (most if not all of the dev team) Wednesday at 10PM EST (we'll do this every Weds). Make sure you're on our Discord:


Patch is now live! Please make sure your game updates, if not, restart your Steam client.

New Features
-Bot Autofill!
-Our official servers will now have AI taking place of players until they connect so servers are never empty.
-You can now Check 'Bots Fill' in Host Game and your server will have bots that hold spots until players connect.
-If you're hosting you can also type '/haddbot 12' in chat to get 12 bots. -Adding this way may not obey Auto-fill Rules
-Hosted games can check Unlimited Ki
-All players can have unlimited Ki for all things during these matches. This is our first feature to give players "mutators/novelty options" outside of official rules.

Bug Fixes

-AI pathing adjustments in all maps
