General Differences

  • The beta's map editor (Staredit) is not included in the beta and would have been received through a patch, however as we have no beta patches we cannot access it.
  • The map format is different from the final one and incompatible with the final map editor.
  • The beta had an observer mode which was removed from the final game, each game has two observer slots, and upon losing a game, a player could originally become an observer.
  • The beta has a cut voice chat mode which was removed from the final.
