Changelog 53 - Game Version 1.4.7458.30800

» » rc set meleeArenaAllowShooting true or false


Bug Fixes

- Solved an issue where the main menu user interface would disappear if a server shuts down while you’re downloading modifications then attempt to connect to it.

- Solved an issue with rock props being no longer present on Lamarsh Fen.

- Attempted fixed towards an infrequent issue which causes recurring kills to appear in the kill feed.
