Known Bugs

This is beta, not a demo. There are bugs. Most notably, is the "Persistance" Battle Mode. Please do not run a "Persistance" dedicated server unless you are around to monitor and reset it. It has been reported to stall and crash.

COMMENTS

There will be constant patches. That is why it is called a beta. If there were no bugs, Purge would have gone gold already.
