The patch 1.06 was maybe low in news features, but it prepares the ground for new projects. The developers have openly mentioned upcoming changes to shotguns, but there are interesting changes for the future in the source code of the patch. The most noteworthy being the arrival ofan option " remake" for ranked games that has been datamined.

At the moment, it's not clear exactly how the vote goes, or what happens in the event of a tie between yes and no. We will have to wait for official confirmation that this feature is added to the game to find out more.
As always, nothing proves that this feature will eventually be added to the game. However, the last time this kind of command appeared in the code, it was the surrender. The surrender ended up arriving on the next patch.
