    A bit anemic as far as community crunches go but I guess it can't be helped since there's nothing to really talk about till the new map drops. At least the EVO kept the adult children that constantly mewl about EVO events because they can't be arsed to actually grind normally quiet. Also when are we gonna get some love for Zany Zebra's 100 day challenges?

    Honestly netguns has ruined this season! People play classic to avoid gen 2, but somehow net guns have been able to come across to classic and has ruined the classic version of pvp. And also the aimbotters getting away with cheating is getting out of hand! Next season they should remove net guns and do more against cheaters. This cluster has some serious potential if you do something against the cheaters.
