The updated sign and the new poster look amazing!

Vietnam war flashbacks to Dec. 2018

Ah, I’m sure we’ll be fine.

cue the plaza a year later, now a smoldering, ruined wasteland littered with dead tower players and catsacks

Narrator: They were in fact, not fine at all.


so baiscally your doing it step by step migration until you get to the final version of 4.27, which will have atleast its own benefits.

The plaza poster looks so pretty!
I’m so happy to have physical maps in the plaza again , but that border looks sort of out of place in the plaza to me.

tbh i don’t like the new map sign cause it’s so chaotic and hard on eyes. But hopefully it gets a bit more simplicity-friendly look on release
