Balancing can be done by hot fix so probably that...
Does anyone know if it will have to be a patch or Hotfix for the Lag Comp?
they can do quite a bit with those hotfixes... any adjustments to anything can be made..
my understanding is the server push hotfixes are simply parameter changes... they cant add new data or fields... but can freely change any parameter like lag comp or gundamage/ROF on the fly..
so like... adding the parameter "CL_makebulletswork" would take a client patch... while changing it to "cl_makebulletswork 1" can be done on the fly if its already there..
my opinion based on experience... could be wrong
