The plan is to lockdown the NSL Competitive mod when the season starts for the duration of season 10. Only small adjustments, if needed, (after the lerk one) will be made between now and the first scheduled match. After the first match, no major changes are planned. We may have to adjust things depending on what UWE does during the season. We will decide after an update by UWE if it changes the game in any meaningful way. In that case, we would try to revert the change. If it's a small thing, perhaps we keep it in comp mod. We also may make additional updates like bug fixes.
The biggest change we are making right before the season starts is to the lerk. The lerk movement changes introduced in build 310 will be added to comp mod. The goal is to have most of the movement in comp mod match vanilla NS2. If you are a lerk player, please keep this in mind going into the season that there will be a change in comp mod to match vanilla's movement.
