III.  Rocket Arena v2.2   Review 
RA was the first mod to use the inventory as a menu to change levels and settings. The included 46 arenas allow teams to deathmatch or play one-on-one while waiting teams spectate. Teams that win get to keep playing, while teams that lose get moved to the roster for future matches. We found RA a lot of fun, hope you agree.
