Posted by: Nathan at 5/31/2012 3:57 PM
Its Thursday so that means its time for another Super Monday Night Combat update!

This weeks update has focused mostly on balancing issue. Only teams of 5 will be matched with other teams of 5 when Q'ing. If you Q solo or with one other player you will be dropped into a game together. Removed is the ability to Q with 3 or 4 players so teams don't start 3 vs. 5 or 4 vs. 5

Other updates include a nerf to long shot turrets in Turbocross along with starting turrets having a shield to prevent backdooring from commandos. 

The free pro rotation this week will be Captain Spark, Cheston, Megabeth, Sniper, Support, Tank

Finally Combat Girl and Leo will be getting new costumes. Combat Girl will be getting the Pitgirl outfit while Leo gets the illusionist attire 

Check out the patch notes below for all the details. BACON!
