    Hooray, that is something great to read!!!

    Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
    Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

    Why teh desertruin?!?!?!?!? icon_restless.gif
    Was awesome map...not anymore.
    Y'know graal is not the best gamemode.

    Ok now good stuff. EVERYTHING IS COOL! You are making a new game there, like there is everything changed, Combat, Block, Menus, Maps, Pickups, Speeds and so on...

    Can you tell that is skirmisher still the fastest and have you reduced berserks speed?

    Skirmisher is still the fastest, berserker is the second fastest, but when he does his special, he is a little faster than the skirmisher.

    you guys did not mention pvk_pinegrove in the Change Log. Does that mean that it won't be in 2.3?

    and I hope you guys release pvk_saints as a custom map since you took it out of the game.

    Edit;OOPS I FORGOT THAT YOU DID MENTION SANDSTORM SORRY!

    saints may return in the future, it is in need of significant changes though to fix many of its problems.

    you guys should release a trailer of 2.3 or a game play video of the Gestir.

    But I wouldn't be surprised if your already planning that. wink.gif

    Oh...my...god, (head explodes due to awesomness), this is just so...much good stuff. I read the entire changelog, and the only thing i was remotely confused by was desertruin, it was my favourite map,also you dont really have any other official territory maps, hope you will release it as territory when 2.3 is released. But still, there is only one thing i can say, and that is OMFG
    the n00biest pirate on the seven seas

    Blocking an enemy attack to the wrong direction may stun you

    I really like the revenge mechanism in LTS, and also the chance of a game to start in Sudden Death.
    That is something I always wanted in LTS, Sudden Death is just so awesome.

    Nice to see we are finally getting some solid progress, Looks like a great update, My first thoughts were to question how big this release actually is, because it does seem like one extra class for 1 of the 3 teams, and it has been a long time but at the same time I can imagine a huge amount of work must have gone into converting it all to the orange box engine, and squashing all the bizillions of bugs that come with it. Thanks PVKII team!! biggrin.gif

    *goes play normal desertruin before 2.3 comes out*

    I'm sure the Holy grail version of desertruin won't be that bad.

    after all they have the new territory map SandStorm that should make up for desertruin.

    and their are allot of custom territory maps.
