We’re adjusting the spawn points for both teams to make this map more balanced. For Mars Electric, we adjusted the play zone slightly to ensure the warehouse is in the center of the map."

Play zone and spawn point adjustment for the Clock Tower and Mars Electric area.

[New] Movement speed reduced by 20% when activated.
