    @RickSco, sorry to hear about that, would you mind giving us more details on which animations/ gear isn't appearing for you. If you could share your platform that would be great too.

    @Lamar_springs, can you let us know what system you are on and what error message is showing up on your end? Have you tried any troubleshooting so far?

    Thanks,

    Roger.

    Thank you for making this large update. I have questions from some of the features of the update. The first involves "Ability was added to remove any equipped Attacker Handicap in Court Battles". I made an attempt to do that when I was in the lobby of a court I am trying to take over, but there was no option to actually do it when I clicked on the rules section. I might need instructions if available. In addition, all jerseys in the store still need a Hype attached to it. I have the Playstation 4 version, and I am not sure if this issue is for this version only. Thank you for having the opportunity to asks questions for this topic.
