Why no auto-release and auto-join?:
- I try not to promote bad habits in my mods.
- No auto-release because knowing when you should or should not release is a part of being a smart player in battlegrounds. For example, say there is five seconds left to capture blacksmith and you die there. Auto-release will send you to the starting area, but if you wait five seconds, you release to blacksmith graveyard.
- Another reason not to use auto-release is to have time to spy on the flag carrier after a failed kill attempt.
- Auto-join was useful when there were single queues and long wait time/afk time. Today is different, of course.
- I'm not telling you how to play, just giving you my reasons.
- Narrow map setting will not work if Mapster is installed. Disabling the battlemap module in Mapster will fix this.
- Many missing translations
