The other day we announced our new feature 'Sven Co-op Monster Mix (tm)'. While we were very excited with the first round of playtests we encountered a slight problem. Within a few hours we started noticing that certain combinations appeared more often than others and after a day of playing, the variations of monsters started to decrease more and more. It appears our system suffers of Rapid Aggressive Darwinism. With every 'evolution' a certain species becomes more dominant until it infested nearly every monster and eventually took over the entire system.

We could have never guessed it but the species in question was:

The Snark!
The Snark!

As we speak, the development version of Sven Co-op is made up for 95% of Snark. Chubby ratings are down by 37%! Therefore we have decided to pull the plug on the 'Sven Co-op Monster Mix(tm)' feature. It's the only way to stop the epidemic from spreading. Hopefully we'll be able to redesign the system by next year around the first of april.
