1.14.00 BZII Beta Patch Feedback
Normally we receive a lot of gamer input and feedback through our community discussion board. Unfortunately, as many of you know,
we have been having problems with the board. We’re still eager to get feedback from everyone concerning the performance of the beta patch, however.

We will begin sorting through these over the next few days.
If the patch works well for you, super!
