Hello Heroes

On Wednesday the 20th January at 10:30 (CET) we will be performing a game update to remove the kick limit as stated here

We will be working with the server providers closely in order to have minimal user impact or if possible, no user impact at all, however do keep in mind that due to servers being updated, connection issues may ensue
