Patch Notes Thread

#1 Posted by metalsnakezero (2667 posts) -

I felt this was something important since it really does change some properties on how the characters play now and also show that Arc is paying attention to any problems with their systems.

I'll try and keep up on some news on future patches but if you like to pitch in go right ahead.

These notes are from a translation by DevilTrigger from themayonakamidnight.comforums.
