Monday Night Combat Update Shortens Crossfire WaitS

Not "patched," remember? Monday Night Combat carries a "Live Update System" that allows it to tune settings without rolling a full patch through the time-consuming certification channels. Here's what you get:

• Time between Crossfire matches (the competitive multiplayer arena) has been shortened to 45 seconds from 60 seconds.

• The minimum number of players needed to start Crossfire is now six; it was eight.

• Custom bots now spawn in 10 seconds, not five.

Now, that said, Uber's aware of "known bugs and exploits," and is working on a patch to address those, as they're beyond the bounds of the game's on-board tuning system.

But hey, faster Crossfire starts with fewer players, that's a good development.
