Disclaimer: Most of equipment tab functions such as levelling, skill tree and saving loadouts are only available to logged players.
Known issue: In about 5% of games loadouts in respawn screen are duplicated. It shouldn't cause any gameplay issue, all of the loadouts are functional.
Leaderboards: Have been wiped for update purposes and players will now start from scratch. No worries though, we remember who was the top 10 and plan to treat them for their hard work and dedication!
Added: Redesigned Link is back - Hardcore difficulty only (Official severs, on unofficial ones both difficulties are available)
Added: New voice-overs for certain situations, mostly for Hardcore Link

Rule 1: When player performs team killing more than twice the player is kicked
Rule 2: When player is inactive/idle for longer than 60 second he is kicked.
