    Reward Item Server
    The game now double checks how many crates a player has earned more often, making sure to grant any that the player is missing, and not granting one if the earned vs received count doesn't check out. This was the reason many/all users had crate issues opting into the beta. The check here did not initially account for the 5 gift crates given to all players.

    We have also discovered that the reward server had a case where it could be too generous, where a client that did not get its reward immediately could ping back out again and get a reward, then be granted the first one which was pending. This would result in an extra crate(s) which would now prevent them from gaining additional reward crates until the earned/rewarded check balances out. This should only impact a small portion of our users.

    An example case here would be a user who currently has received 12 crates, but only earned 8 (5 gift crates and 3 through play/rewards). The game will not grant additional crates until they have earned another 4 crates. Continued play and earned rewards will continue to be counted and crates should start being granted when the earned/granted match.
