    Next week, we expect to be ready to do balance testing for 2.9.0.

    See the changelog thread for all the changes. In particular, I want to know if concs seem okay; the intention is for them to be really good when you're with teammates, but otherwise not so much. Also, test out each of the weapons mentioned in the changes to see if they're still balanced, and try out arties again.

    Please post here if you can make it; we hope to do three rounds.
    First a warmup on district402, when we have 16 players and both commanders we'll switch to cyclopean. Post your map suggestions for the next rounds.

    I'm looking for commanders, because we intend to do a bit of balance testing, we need to try for a fair game.

    I think this would be ideal als a precursor to the scrim afterwards.

    If people want to do it after the scrim as well then that's a terrific idea. Try organise it @Paradox - I already talked to Lawliet and he's in

    He said "precursor" to the scrim that means before.

    He said precursor afterwards - it's very ambiguous

    Ohh I get it; Playtest as a precursor to the league that will happen afterwards.
    I read it as a playest that would be great as a precursor to happen after the league.

    I've turned that into a bugreport after figuring out how to reproduce. As it's not a new bug, it's not going to impede the release of 2.9.0

    Do you mean BE engineer's "Close quarters SMG" ? Did it occur just once during the test? Have you heard the bug before? Please try to reproduce this bug - I haven't been able to.

    No, it happened one time only, on district and lasted for 3-4 seconds.
