v1.1.0

November 21, 2020

Home

Updated Reworked completely to remove a third party plugin.
After initially pushing for a "full page" style of the home page to be attractive to 'new' people I have decided to do a full 180 as numerous complications arose from the plugin we used, how "uninformative" it actually was because of these complications and how "chaotic" the site looked, taking the navbar's contents into account. It also used some very old points of data which have been indirectly replaced with other endpoints.

Message of the Day

Updated Reworked to match the contents of the new home page.
The "fit everything inside the tf2 motd" approach was not working and resulted in other important content being left out completely. This aims to have more "DFS" inside the MOTD which now displays the most recent announcement, update and other handy resources to check out depending how much information you seek inside the MOTD.

Player Profiles

Added You can now change between themes you have unlocked.
Updated The top part of profiles have been reworked.
Updated A 404 is now returned for non-existant profiles.
Updated Themes are now 'generated' programmatically, this affects colours in all existing themes on the website.
For reference, these were previously done by badly hand-picking colours for the primary shade of that theme.
Fixed Fixed a bug where player's equipped profile items and friends on Steam were never updated.
Fixed Fixed a bug where fetching a private account's friends resulted in an error.
Fixed Fixed a bug where animated backgrounds were not correctly positioned.
