Dear Players,

Sadly, we have encountered unexpected issues with the Game Mode changes - which is why they will not be included in this patch.

Needless to say, our developers are working like a beehive to fix the issues and bring you the changes asap. I cannot give any ETA right now.

Please bear with us, we'll update you as soon as possible!
