well a config file on the server could have changed without a client change.  Damage levels and multipliers and such. 

So some stuff could have been done seamlessly on the next map change.

But I guess it is a secret, posted on a public forum.  So can't know if it would fall with a category that should have required a client update.

I mean if he knows of a change to the servers game mechanics, isn't that knowledge that all players are entitled to?  I don't see the benefit in the secrecy.

could be arena settings? Target hardness? Plane damage? I have never really messed with arena settings before, but i imagine thats something that can be changed without any updates?

But that stuff can be easily checked by players, in arena setup.

At least a few years ago, even such a change required a new game version, as any arena (map) reset would change settings back to default.
