Patch Notes 21st March 2019

About this patch
We are very happy that we came to an agreement with Jagex so we now have control over the game. We look forward to working with the games awesome community to ensure that the servers are up, and matches can be found.

One of the things we want to do, is to try out things (sometimes quite radical stuff). Some of these you will hate, and sometimes for good reason. We will be listening to you, and looking at the data, and when it turns out that some things do not work we will try to be quick remove or resolve it.

Our key focus for this update was trying to reduce the time needed to search for matches. We have also added some new blocks that we hope will shake up how the matches are played. We have also done a much needed balancing pass, and some tweaks and fixes that we know you have been waiting for. We look forward to hearing what you guys think. Building is awesome.

Toadman Crate
A little welcome from us for all existing players.
The crate will either contain a random new character, or if you have all characters, a random new skin. If you have all characters and skins, your crate will contain 3000g
(This crate does not include special exclusive skins)

New Blocks
Cloud: The Cloud block has to be built next to another block, but will remain up in the air if the blocks around it are destroyed, giving a new perspective for the “sky bridges”
Cannon: Fire a bullet at a fixed time, which does damage on explosion
Piggy Bank: The Piggy Bank device block gathers bricks over time. When destroyed, the contents of the piggy bank are shared among the team.

Characters max level
The character max level has been increased to 200. At level 125 and 150, you will receive 1500 Gold. At level 150 and 200, you will received bounty crates (Gold at 150 and Diamond at 200)
