Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Head Dev Professor and his team have been hard at work this December and January and are pleased to bring you this update on the many patches that have been implemented since the last update!

Also added in are many re-colors and new colors of Gambesons, Brigandines, and Tabards over Mail and Plate.
Changes to Defend the Virgin Mode (Coop vs. AI)
Included in the changes to DTV in this round of patches is a massive XP reward for defeating the final level of DTV. Players that beat the final wave of Tincans and the accompanying heroes now receive a 500% XP Bonus.
Also included are several tweaks DTV bot AI to improve bot interaction with players. Bots now have improved ability to focus on players, run to players, and target players correctly.
Ranged Balancing / Armor Soak Fix
Significant changes have been made to both Crossbow and Archer classes to provide more balanced play. Missiles (Arrows and Bolts) have also been made easier to see. Additionally, armor Soak values were found to be working incorrectly resulting in players taking excessive damage. These values have been fixed.
Full information on balancing changes can be found on the forums and the balance team can be reached in the cRPG Discord.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to play CPRG. The combat is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of swordplay techniques most of the attacks will land over a typical gamer's head. There's also King James's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Johannes Liechtenauer literature, for instance. The players understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about CONQUEST. As a consequence people who dislike CRPG truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in King James's existential catchphrase "Behead those who insult Acre," which itself is a cryptic reference to Fiore dei Liberi's Italian epic Flower of Battle. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as the developers' genius wit unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a CRPG tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the noblewomen's eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that their armies are within 500 reinforcements of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
alrite u tough boi, don't choke on your own mickey
