    Hello everybody!

    We are proud to announce a new update for OITC. These are the changes that were added to hopefully offer players better gameplay, more variety and more competitivity to reignite the spark OITC once had:

    New lobby by the J&H Build Team.
    8 new maps.
    New ELO system in addition to the standard leaderboard.
    Some bug fixes.


    How the ELO system works
    The ELO rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players, originally made for Chess. Basically, everyone has a certain amount of ELO. Everyone starts off with 1200. This would mean you are an average player. Winning or losing will grant or deduct ELO.

    Here comes the cool part. If you win against someone who is much better, let's say 1600 ELO, you will gain +24 ELO. However, if you lose against him, you will only lose -8 ELO. This means that you gain or lose points based on the skill level of your opponents. If you are really good at OITC, you will climb the rankings, if you're not that great you will drop. This will give a fairer ranking system than the current one, where it was purely based on how much you play instead of showing how good you actually are.

    I would suggest being able to play with people relative to your skill level, but that is just me c:

    Honestly, this update is really bad imo. I have 4 reasons why


    1. The spawn killing, on the new maps the spawn killing has drastically increased. I got spawn killed 8 times in a row, which is insane. The new maps need to either have more spawn points or a bigger map. Right now you can bairly move without being critted out or shot instantly.

    2. Nobody uses the sword, unless they crit you out. Right now with the new maps it is just shooting and no sword fights. Maybe you should make the maps less crampt so there is more area to sword fights and less area to just shoot straight and always hit.

    3. The stupid glitch where the games last forever, infinitely giving you xp every kill you get farming levels.

    4. ELO Gets reset every 10 mins. I was playing a game and everyone got kicked, I log back in, bam elo resets. This problem may only happen now, but I expect now whenever there is a server restart if you are in a game it will reset your elo.

    I like the maps, but I think Meltdown needs to be lag-free more cos it has lot's of lag, but it's still good, and thanks!
