The Beta versions Edit
There were a few beta versions before 1.6 was released, those included WoP 1.5.3, 1.5.4 and 1.5.5 beta versions which were only released to the pbucli via the PadWorld server
The Beta versions had a planned map: Kai's Trash Map CTL, however it was never released in the final 1.6 patch due to unknown reason.

The 1.5.1 Hotfix Edit
The 1.5 release was very buggy so a week after it's release, the WoP team released a quick hotfix patch to fix most of the bugs.
