    50th edition special!

    Huge Lobby Update
    You guys made it clear that our old lobby was pretty lacklustre. There were several issues with the old lobby - these have all been addressed in this lobby update.

    New KitPvP 1v1 Map
    One of the most requested features of our KitPvP gamemode is a new, entirely flat 1v1 map, as can be found in most practice servers. Thanks to @Collector, we now have one!

    Return of Old WarZ
    A few months ago, we released WarZ 2.0. Unfortunately, we missed the mark with it and many players said that they wanted old WarZ to return. We have listened, and we are now running both WarZ 1.0 and WarZ 2.0 simultaneously. More information here:
    http://www.brawl.com/threads/73907/

    Since we re-released old WarZ, we have also tweaked the guns so comboing worked as it used to.

    CTF Bug Fixes, Ninja Tweak and More
    CTF has received a recent patch fixing a wide range of bugs, including bugs causing maps to be played back to back. We are also testing a Ninja tweak, along with a poll to see what you guys think. Finally, we have released the feedback you guys have given to us about chemist, and we are now seeking your feedback on freeday.

    To see the full list of bug fixes, or to give your feedback on freeday, see here:
    http://www.brawl.com/threads/73948/

    Build Schematic Update
    CTF spawnboxes have now been added to Build's list of schematics, including the seasonal variants.

    That's all for this month, I hope you guys enjoy the updates.

    Featured Brawler
    This month's featured Brawler is a staff member who saw an issue with the management of CTF, and took the initiative to fix it himself. There's been a recent internal change which was kept pretty quiet - we now have a CTF council, a group of staff members who frequently get together and discuss issues with CTF and how to fix them. You might have noticed improved communication between the staff team and the CTF community, and this is all down to this council. This staff member founded this council and has helped manage it, arranging weekly meetings and discussion topics, which has drastically improved CTF's development.

    The featured Brawler for this month is @ningeek212. Congratulations!

    Trivia Question
    Last month's question was: as of November 1, how many days have @Eil and @Miskey both been administrators?
    The answer is 238 days. @Blamo answered it first and earned a forums trophy!

    This month's question is: how many snow blocks are there in the new Christmas lobby?
    The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

    Group Advertisement
    This new CTF team aims to innovate the way teams are organised. They describe themselves as "a team that allows players to make choices, suggestions and participate in developing new strategies for the team." They are currently pending, and will be likely be official very soon. Interested? Apply here!

    Sponsored Media
    This month's sponsored media is a picture of @chickenputty dabbing. Because, why not?

    As always - the memes I've put here are purely comical, they aren't actually what I think of Brawl.

    brawl is so dysfunctional that wildwest is still a category in the leaderboards.
