TILOS, An old friend…

Some time ago a few would remember talks about a “Life” server hosting Tilos as our main map, well it has been kicked back alive and a 2016 version has commenced!

Question is… Would an EXILE Mod and Tilos mash work?! Express your thoughts in our forums here! www.RTFGaming.com Forums
