What’s new with koth_lakeside_r?

- Fixed multiple hitboxes (Pillars on the bathhouse, stairs to point)
- Removed the sun that was giving 1 team a clear advantage
- Merged all the small ammo packs into a medium pack instead
- Better respawn cabinets (Closer to the door, for those without resupply binds)


What’s new with koth_ashville_rc2c?

- Teleporter jumping onto roof is now impossible
- Blockbullets is now completely covering the stairs, as you could glitch them through the edging
- The grates on batts to see under no longer allow stickies to awkwardly roll
- Stickies no longer bounce off of the fence on batts

The Map Order will be released closer to the season start date.
