Two new worlds, two new PQs, Cody’s promise that he has yet to fulfill, an aggressive clock (of all things…), a poorly implemented but great idea, one of the most disappointing updates ever and Shammos’ moment of glory. September has been an average month.

This Month in Our Past: July

July’s edition of This Month in Our Past has finally arrived! I apologize for the lateness.

July. Summer. Big Updates. July is my favorite month of the year because it always brings big updates. From the first ever Day of Darkness, to our favorite massive swimming-pool-in-the-ocean in Maple World.
