The next updates I'd like to discuss are those to the in-game Robot Editor. As mentioned before, transferring robots between players was an incredibly painful and slow process. The June 3rd update restructured the rest of the game menu to allow for slightly faster transfer times and a way to easily regenerate missions, but I wanted to take it a step further.
Previously the entire Robot Editor would reload when you transferred a robot - a process that could take anywhere from 3 - 30 seconds depending on server load (which always felt like a very long time). Now robots can be transferred almost instantly with no reloading and only a short screen-fade while the robot is moved. This means you can quickly swap the Player field back and forth, casually assigning player-specific abilities without much effort.
This should encourage a lot more transferring among players and, as a result, more unique ability combinations in Player Battles. I hope you guys enjoy this upgrade, and let me know if you have any questions or other feedback in the comments. :)
