In Update 0.10.5, we are introducing Ichor, a new resource for crafting gear. Metal will become the resource for crafting forts. This change will most likely completely change the meta and economy of Revn matches. We plan to release a mid-week balance patch as soon as we have gathered data from playtesting regarding the new economy.
