Okay. Number one complaint from new players about NOTD 2 is that the Reload hotkey is T, not R. And honestly, I see no reason to not change it.
Reload and whatever abilities currently have the hotkey of R can be swapped, and Reload being R just feels better in general. However, because of NOTD's legacy, there's a good chance that people will obtain the upset over changing Reload to R, so I'm going to toss up a poll to see what ye olde forume goeres think.
The results of the vote will influence my decision, although to what measure I cannot say - that will ultimately depend on how many votes and how much discussion happens.
A decision will be made by Feburary 10th. Hop to it if you care.

NOTD 2’s pets are making a move from units that start weak and become powerful (in some cases, insanely overpowered) to units that are more middle of the road, in both starting and ending strength. They are also becoming less standardized and more unique - each pet will have a set of abilities that help it to fit a specific role.
PET LEVELS AND EXPERIENCE
Pets will have a maximum of six levels, with the following amounts being what are required to meet each new level:
So! The Psi Ops. Neato burrito spicy meato. The trees are designed around the concepts of the “classic” mind powers – being able to move things with your mind and being able to influence others with your mind.
