-A lot of work was done on -mm and -du this version and game mode order logic. However, for the sake of map stability, it needs more work and testing. Expect more fixes relating to the other modes in the future. DM included. CTF will be the last one I spend the time to fix.
-The map should be a lot more balanced and bug free now, pending any 1.19 issues, to better prepare it for real competitive and overall public use. There will probably be a minor update in the near future to clean up any remaining issues that come up.
~Have fun!
