Patch Notes 1.4.0

Merry Patchmas, Yolks!

Today’s patch comes with lots of balance, and quality-of-life improvements across the entire game — along with general crash fixes. They also made major changes to their anti-cheat detection to ensure fewer matches with players who don’t play fair.

Ho-Ho-Ho-Hop in there!
