2 There is a tournament in 10 days, so it is a perfect time to fix Archer. The central issue for Archer was physics-based rather than attributes based, which makes solo testing difficult. Thankfully, @rooks[vegan], @Kingstad, @raaar, @noobula, and @izirayd were nice enough to test it out in multiplayer. @Kingstad decided that Archer should cost 180 metal to compensate for the changes. 2 There is a tournament in 10 days, so it is a perfect time to fix Archer.

4 It is also a good time to give Constable a little damage, because who are we to question the will of @Godde? Puppy and Moderator have also received a slight reduction in jank. In other news, the outline widget had its settings tweaked and is now enabled by default. Players already using the widget may want to revise their settings to take the changes into account. 4 It is also a good time to give Constable a little damage, because who are we to question the will of @Godde?
