Build 947 – Fixes and Improvements

First stage of that “cleaning up” bullet point.

Update on the crashing situation: We’re reverting the changes to the server browser, we’ll be debugging them more next week but we want to avoid having people crash and complain. As such, server browser pings will still likely be inaccurate, just a heads up.

Mostly fixes, but a few changes as well, most notably:

  • No RNG when firing “normal” shots as archer, only legolas
    This means that legolas spamming isn’t as accurate at long range and pinpoint sniping is feasible, raising the skill ceiling a little.
  • All classes can arrow climb
    This increases the utility of the archer as it can now be used to help allies over walls – arrow climbing has been revamped to kill the arrow quite quickly, and allow you to “jump” off of the arrow instead of climbing it like a ladder (no movement penalty). We’ll be paying close attention to how this affects balance, but I think it’ll allow archers to feel more useful during a push.
  • Vote kick tweaks
    Most notably, if someone leaves while being vote-kicked, the system presumes they were guilty. The ban time has been increased to 30 minutes to help deter persistent griefers.
  • (the changes to server browser have been left out of this build to prevent crashes)
  • Spawn immunity doesn’t restart when changing class
    Preventing the (minimal) abuse that had been going on with that.
  • Visible boards over a tunnel that you can’t travel through
    No more tapping E to “check”
