2.43 Incoming Very Soon

A few major things slipped through the cracks of 2.42 and are wreaking havoc. Primarily, a client crash related to joining a server while a laser grenade is active or thrown, which has been found and will be fixed in 2.43.

We also plan on addressing a few balance concerns, particularly with the slowfield, which is currently too strong. We made some last minute changes before 2.42 was released that needed more testing than they received. The Super Nailgun clip will also be raised from 30 nails to 50.

This balance/bugfix patch will be released within the next few days at most, so stay tuned.

Sorry about any issues you've been having with 2.42/2.42.1.

then that 15 months would turn into another 12 months..... valve runs on a cyclic time frame.

Thanks Squeek for putting this on the front burner !!
