Updated Pinch Points LE to v2.02

  • Moved bottom middle gems closer towards the middle tech oil derrick for easier access and better balance.

Added Cold War LE v1.00

  • Removed barrels near right side tech oil derricks.
  • Reduced the number of trees near the right side player spawn point to reduce choke-points.

Updated Proving Grounds LE to v1.06

(Missing notes from previous release)

  • Replaced middle gems with ore to make it less important and encourage players to build around the corners of the map. This is to reduce the effect Magnetrons have on the outcome of a match. Also with longer distances between player bases and as bases get more spread out the Allied players have more opportunities to harass.
  • Removed trees around corner gem patches to allow space to build.
  • Removed ore mines from corner resource patches to reduce effectiveness of camping in the corner as Yuri.
  • Removed the middle ore mines to reduce the importance of resources in the late game.
  • Available for all scenarios. (SvA, SvY, SvS, AvA, AvY, YvY)
