    • Relayed ingame changelogs to discord
    • Changes to team: Rename & Transfer leadership
    • Removed props based on usage
    • Removal of welfare system because it was being abused, free props are meant to replace the system

    • Ability to warn an entire team
    • Added MW2-styled color codes

    Reflection of the summer event

    • It’s not unique (copy of other events)
    • Lack of songs

    Development

    • New weapons are being integrated to TFA; fresh start, more control, and more weapons
    • As more weapons are added, a loadout system will be taken into consideration
    • Donkie wants to convert US3 into a test server where you can configure props/weapons (mod+)
    • Remake of the entire HUD
    • UI rehaul of the team menu
    • Map Testing

    ???

    Discord dev channels
    • A discussion was held about the devzone channel being restricted
    • Devzone should be opened to everyone (the community) instead of staff
    Replayability
    • Discussion was held in regards to replayability
    • Idea of daily rewards of giving players cash on the weekly/monthly board
    • Nyaaa reinforced Jeffrey’s Hard mode suggestion
    • Add a prestige system
    • Add a spectator area (on donkie's new map)
    Other
    • Create tutorials covering basic flood tips (and events)
    • Nyaaa suggested a video
    • Donkie wants to create a help page on the Q Menu
    • Nyaaa brought up the translation of flood rules but was an issue because of the barrier between languages (when carrying moderation).
    • Donkie said it’s a good idea so players don’t have an excuse to break server rules; have a translated notice that players are expected to read and write English when it comes to moderation
    • Silver reinforced the idea of nerfing zombie HP
    • Nyaaa wants Gold+ to vote for a specific event
    • Any suggestions/ideas with permanent value should be posted on Github or the forums

    Thank you to those who have attended!
