Please note that this is in fact an incomplete list. We're certain there are more noteworthy dates that still need to be nailed down, and/or corrections made. Not to mention how many more dates would be listed if we included every single thing like all the maps and/or skins released over time.
Cheers to every single person out there who has helped and/or played Chaos over the years.

No public releases in 2005.
However, there was still Lots of work being done on big items for ChaosUT2. So even though there were unfortunately no public releases, given the large amount of actual content creation that took place throughout the year, we feel it still counts.
The work done that year included very labor intensive areas such as:
the Chaos Hoverboard
the Chaos Bike
replacing ALL of the monsters (for the Chaos Horde Hunter game type) that were borrowed from someone else, with all new monsters that were made by chaos team members
not to mention tons and tons of code work, for sample of this a Huge changelog from September of 2005 can be seen here - http://chaotic.beyondunreal.com/c_archi ... ?view=cut2
