Q: How is Multiplayer optimization judged?
A: It has a few factors like: how well can the server handle the game, how smooth the game can be while playing it with the max amount of players (example: lag), how many players can it be played with… and similar questions regarding the topic.
Q: Does StickyPiston claim any ownership rights in User Content created during the Map Jam event or have any rights to publish the user content on their services like trials without written permission from the creators?
A: We’ll never claim ownership of your creations, even if it’s produced through our Map Jam.
