Chicken Ball? Mine Ball? Interesting
Being able to drop mines is one of the most interesting new features in Cuthroats 2.0, because it adds a new strategic element to the game. You know how the current version of the game often sees ships clump together and duke it out at point-blank range? Adding mines to the equation really forces a change in tactics.
What's great to see are more captain abilities. In the original game, the only way a captain could actually inflict any damage was with ramming. By adding new abilities for captains, it creates a sort of "fourth gunner" on the boat. I've seen animations of some proposed captain abilities which may or may not show up in Cutthroats 3.0, and they're absolutely unhinged.
As for the chicken cannon, this is the funniest thing I've ever seen in Home. I know a couple of people have expressed doubts about it, but trust me, it adds a certain zaniness X-factor to the game which is drop-dead hilarious.

All that information and no mention of the level cap being raised or what it's being raised to.
I suspect they would have had to do that. I'm sure we'll get more info soon. I would think additional rewards were also added to the game. Lets face it Homies love rewards.

I have a question: are any of the current level-unlocked rewards going to be retired when this update hits, or will they still be available?
