Among lots of balance changes and fixes, the latest update on Steam also brought a new ball type: the gravity ball!
Did I say one new ball type? There is a secret second one. You can find it at the end of the arcade mode or using SRSCRDL.
Leading up to and over the holidays the Lethal League community has grown noticeably! If you want to take part in it, here are two upcoming events standing out:
The third New Player Challenge (January 30)
(entry limited to sub 200 hour players on Steam)
And the third Quarantined Rapport (February 20)
(look out for console tournaments hosted on the same weekend!)
If you wanna partake in either of these or other tournaments,

But these two are old news by now! What about that second teaser?
All scenes for it are now drafted start to finish, set to a brand new track.
And it’s about twice as long as the first one!
