Bugs are no fun. They are the opposite of fun. They literally take fun, bite into it, and infect it with rage. So, in the great words of ‘Starship Troopers’, Kill them All! I have been making it my personal mission to track down and eradicate every single multiplayer related bug I can find. I have been pulling logs from …
