Welcome to Custom Hightower C1! The C stands for Classic.
Hightower "Classic" takes the unreleased R15 while removing the cliffs and associated secrets to bring the focus back to PVP.
We are moving away from secrets and are focusing on the balance of PVP.
This is just C1 so things are still open for discussion/balance for PVP. Don't be afraid to speak up. If you think you have idea's on map balance mention them and we can discuss them.
You can view the full changes below.

A recent Vice[www.vice.com] report detailed the free antivirus company collecting and selling browser history (including URL, visiting time, order of site visits, search engine query terms, links clicked on Amazon, etc.) to third-party companies.
