    Amazing it took them damn near eight years to add the auto attack timing bar to the default UI….that being said I might actually consider running hte default UI now because of it lol

    There’s an age slider?


  • Loch


    There’s an age slider for the original models, yes.

    A very nice set of updates.

    Going to enjoy all of them from not watching the Benny Hill session with the flag in Ganak anymore, to seeing tanks be squishy with no block in recklessness to the much needed autoattack bar.

    @Bhagpuss Some folks actively prefer original to SOGA for that very reason. (Full disclosure, I’ve been migrating back to original from SOGA myself of late.)

    Oh great. Now I’m going to have to ‘replace’ music files and run Ganak just to PVP to the tune of ‘Yakity Sax’…
