This was a joke! Now that April 1st is over, please take note of real news, like the Easter Tournament!
As many of you have noticed, the March 2017 Server update v0.6.1 made Equilibrium a ranked mod. This has sparked a controversy about the “special treatment” of the mod and the balance of FAF in particular.
After intense internal discussions, the council has come to the conclusion that the current FAF balance has been heading the wrong way (this was also the reason why Blackheart decided to retire), while Equilibrium addressed the community’s requests much better.
Equilibrium will therefore no longer be a mod, but become the official FAF balance. In light of this, Exotic_Retard’s current position on the balance team will be changed to Balance Councillor, and JaggedAppliance will remain a member of the team, so it’s easier to head in the new direction.
A post on the forums outlining the roadmap for balance will be done shortly, be sure to check that when it’s posted.
If you have any comments or feedback please post them on the forums, and it may also be a good idea to try Equilibrium right now to see what FAF balance will look like in the future.
