Name Reservation Bonus Items

As you may very well know, bonus items were added to the player and clan reservation plans in https://xero.gg/reservation/. Since then, we implemented brand new visual effects and improvements to the game, so we thought these special items should receive one of those effects! Here is some new ingame footage of said items:

Visual

The first update is regarding the scoreboard view, it has been revamped and room information is now fully displayed. Here is a comparison:

Since the time we posted the previous development letter a little over a week ago, we have implemented most of the concepts in the game. We prepared a video showcasing the fully functional halftime break with the legacy interface at the end, we also extended the time you're able to change your character during halftime from 10 to 20 seconds, please take a look:

Lighting has been improved across all maps, the character now matches the environment of each map.

That's it for today's developer letter, we hope you had a good read! Open beta is right around the corner, so stay tuned!
