  • Keepalive timeout was increased! [30 seconds ---> 120 seconds] 
  • This will greatly help players with connection problems to not get kicked.
  • /tps command is now available for all players, so it's now possible to check if that it is the player lag which is intact or it is the server lag.
  • The voting menu in all minigames no longer automatically opens.

  • Payment methods were updated in our webstore, now paying via cards is possible using PayPal.
