All silly activities like this will be looked into after the lobbies are reintroduced, since for now it is essential we get them up and running properly in quick order before anything extra like this. I do miss the snowball fights, though.
Nothing much beyond what's been stated in this thread so far. This was initially a tiny patch to update predators, but the matchmaking portion of it was such an undertaking that a bunch of other bits had time to get cleaned up. Most of this patch is for visuals, audio and AI, with balance and bug fixes (while bigger than they were ever initially going to be) taking a relative backseat until the next one.
Thoughhhh I CAN say that the current patch will not take much time from now to reach public. We're actually squashing the last bit of glaring issues right this moment!
