    New Forum Layout
    Thanks to a lot of hard work from @chickenputty and @Eil, the forums have been given a new look to match with the rest of the site! Since you're on the forums right now, you probably know what it looks like... but here's a screenshot of it anyway!
    [​IMG]

    Wild West Coco Base Changes
    Similar to the recent changes to the Wildgrass and Poppy rebel bases, Coco has had a huge overhaul! This new base features drastically improved aesthetics and a revamped layout, making fighting more interesting.

    Special thanks for @Eikaru (Droiid), @Nafsu and @Pyrotheum for making it!

    Wild West /stuck Command
    As well as the coco rebel base changes, we have also added a solution to one of the most infamous glitches on Wild West. Ever took a train and got stuck in the void, leaving you no choice but to spam any mod online to help you out? Now, you can simply do /stuck, and the glitch should fix itself.

    Wild West Night Cycle
    After months of begging from many members of the community, Wild West finally has a night cycle added. This change is purely aesthetic, but the demand for this has been very high so we hope you enjoy it.

    CTF EMP Update
    Thanks to our newest developer, @redslime, CTF has received another update! After a long time of Elf being underused, the class has received a major revamp allowing it to stand a better chance against other classes. We also changed Medic, Pyro, Mage and Chemist, as well as a few other minor changes and bug fixes. For a more detailed changelog, visit the thread here.

    CTF Alltime Leaderboards
    A while back, we had to remove the CTF alltime leaderboards due to issues loading all the stats. However, we've been able to fix them and they are now back! To view them, visit the site here.

    War Emblem Update
    Clan emblems on War are finally visible in-game now. To see them, type /clan info <clan name> and click on "View Clan Emblem". Here's a preview of GIGN's clan emblem:
    [​IMG]

    New War Maps
    After a very popular demand, we've finally added more maps to War. The update features 7 new maps, most of which are reskins from Legacy War. See here for more information: http://www.brawl.com/threads/72166/.

    Global /calc Command, Mainly for Raid
    A pretty small command which I'm sure a lot of raid community members will be grateful for next time they want to track someone. A simplified version of /calc has been added, and (hopefully) it shouldn't be possible to crash the server with it! Simply do /calc <number> <expression> <number>. The command works on every gamemode, but will be most useful on Raid.

    KitPvP Changes
    Following the KitPvP changes that happened in February, we've decided to give a small buff to the Fighter kit. We felt it took too much damage, so it's chestplate now has a protection enchantment to give it a small boost against other kits. Hopefully this makes the kit more useable!

    HG Events
    After a long period of no events, we hosted 2 HG events this month. The first, despite only being announced 12 hours before the event took place, reached over 75 players - it was one of the biggest events HG has had on Brawl! These events are normal HG events but with higher stakes - the winners get free ranks. There are more HG events coming soon, so get practicing.

    Build Nightvision Command
    A small albeit useful update: you can use the /nv command to toggle on or off night vision. This was added a while back but was broken, we have recently fixed it.


    [​IMG]

    HG Kit Rotation
    Normal: Dwarf, Fireman, Jumper, Poseidon
    VIP: Miner, Monk, Toolmaster
    MVP: Philosopher, Rhino, Spectre, Tarzan, Thor
    ELITE: All kits, as always

    Featured Brawler
    This month's Featured Brawler is someone who has helped the staff team so much, they might as well be the the manager for Wild West... but they're not even staff! Not only has this player helped a bunch by suggesting a load of changes for the gamemode, but he has also contributed to all of the new rebel base reskins. This month's Featured Brawler is @Eikaru (Droiid)! Don't forget to thank him for the tremendous work he's put in recently.

    Trivia Question
    Last month's question was: What was the official name of the old WarZ Competitive server?
    The answer was ArenaZ. @Usp45 answered it first and earned a forums trophy!

    This month's question is: How much time total has been spent playing War 2.0 since it's release?
    The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

    Group Advertisement
    This month, our featured group is going to a more casual CTF team. If you're looking to get involved in the team scene and want a friendly, casual environment to start out in, The Jailors is a great team to join. Led by @Roll0fSushi and @kaibolger1, there's never a dull moment. You can see their very colourful team thread here!
