CrimeCraft has patched its servers today with a large update that includes a rework of the F2P model. Free-to-play characters will now only get experience, loot, and cash at about half the rate of subscribing players, have bank tab limitations, and be charged higher in-game cash for services.

The patch also introduces daily tournaments, a new 32 player map, and various fixes. The full patch notes are below.
