    The stats tracking should be able to buy with credits imo, so people can use their credits other than buying classes.

    Great update and fixed alot of Bugs.
    I also agree with feeliq that the stat tracking thing should be bought with creds and not money.
    But as far as elf goes I dislike. Tbh I understand and agree with the 3 to 5 second cooldown on wind element, but the 15 block radius is ridiculous, as a defensive elf main I cant play elf on the majority of maps now like Airlock or Blackout. If there is going to be a radius it should be 5-7 blocks to protect the flag.

    Hell yes. Great work and I think these are some of the best changes after removing wool.

    Few things:

    1. Elf changes are good for most part, I do agree with @Northernlreland that radius from flag might need a decrease. 15 blocks does seem a bit far. But I guess we should actually play it for a bit first :stuck_out_tongue:

    2. Medic/Assassin/Pyro/Respawn changes are nice, definitely takes some of the annoyance out of ctf lul

    3. Visual changes seem pretty awesome. Does MVP go by most credits earned? Cause that's just gonna go to defense almost every single time.

    4. Credits changes are nice, wish there were more ways to earn credits tho. Like healing. Or damage dealt around the flag. Also still want gifting to be a thing.

    5. Stat tracking is buyable with irl money only? Is that correct? I dun feel like checking

    6. oml thank u for fixing bugs

    But seriously though, great update, I love the cosmetic changes.

    Also, did you ensure that you cannot rename the flag

    I forgot one thing to say soo,

    Elf:
    Why on Earth disable Wind Element, Vortex is the stuff why people complained about and elf cappers like @915 are now legit screwed here. Also decrease the goddamn radius or remove it, it would encourage people to use ninjas on offense. The cool down was 2 seconds, 4 seconds seem reasonable.

    Of course.

    The 15 block restriction only applies to the vortex, you can still use the wind element to fly. Clarified that above now.

    Glad to see another update come through, it seems to have been well-executed and thought out. And hey, my idea was added in (a version of it at least).

    That's a relief. @Feeliq_, stop spreading misinformation :stuck_out_tongue:. I panicked for a moment.

    Perfect update 12/10 I couldn't have asked for more.

    But it says crafting's been disabled??? This is a huge nerf to Fashionista!

    It would be nice to be able to buy the CTF cosmetics with credits though, just to give something to the dozens of people who want to waste their hundreds of thousands of credits on at least something. I understand Brawl needs to not go broke and everything, but people have been wanting other uses for their credits ever since they were introduced, and the fact that classes are cheap af now will just make this more problematic.

    Fashionista's crafting bench is obviously not affected.

    Currently:

    Inventory for ninja is no longer saving.
    Attempting to save my inventory makes me a ghost player. Can't select classes have no class selector or compas upon login.

    I think inventory saving broke when custom item names were added, I'll fix it tomorrow. I've been trying to figure out what causes the ghost class/not having any items but I didn't manage to find the cause yet :/ I know it's not necessarily connected to using /saveinv though, I've been getting the problem by just relogging. Will update you again when I fixed it :L
