    I hope everyone had a good weekend!

    This post is a follow-up announcement that I mentioned in Friday's changelog. (If you haven't seen Friday's update, make sure to go check it out first, it was pretty neat!)

    About a month ago, we posted a job opening for a Developer position with Savage Games. Today, I'd like to update you on why that was.

    Project APOLLO will be a new anti-cheat system developed by Savage Games.

    Thanks to your support, we're able to reinvest into you guys to improve the combat and play experience on Skybounds, Money Wars, and future Savage Games content. APOLLO is being developed to be unnoticeable to legitimate players. In fact, it's doing its job if you as a normal player never know it exists. The end goal is to make bans that are silent and swift against players that are ruining the game for others, so you can go back to enjoying it.

    I'll let @ItsErikR (Lead of Project APOLLO) explain the project in his own words:

    We're very excited to be rolling this out in stages beginning in the next few weeks, and we're happy that we will be able to resolve a major pain point for players with high latency connections as well as those that suffer from lagbacks.

    Thank you all again for your continued support, and thank you for helping us build a better server!

    Devon, on behalf of the Savage Games team.

    Seems like a very good development for the future of the server, can't wait to see (or not see :P) it being finished and finally implemented into the server completely!

    'good news for you Aussie people!'
    oh hey, I've been noticed. :o

    I'm looking forward to hearing the process of how Project APOLLO is coming along in the future, I'm sure once completed it will make the job more convenient in terms of banning cheaters.
