GridIron Update New Reporting System, New Visual Stances, and Bug Fixes

Gridiron steam

1336Studios, developer of GridIron, just released a new update that adds some cool new features. A new reporting system is now available and reports carry penalties based on voice or text communication mutes. These penalties can result in a reported player’s match cooldowns or even game bans. This feature has been implemented to reduce the number of toxic players.

The new visual stances allow players to select stances based on the position being played, such as Offensive Linemen will use the 3-point stance and Defensive Linemen will use the 4-point stance. The developers have also made several minor changes along with some bug fixes, which can be found in the patch notes.
