Kuwe, look into that bug I said, where I didn't have a character after game selection and my items were on the ground.
If you want to make runes global, I would suggest make this as an event. When it starts all runes respawn and affect all your teammates so everyone rushes to get as many as possible.
I think I found what cause that bug. It should be fixed by the next version.
I may add some events, we'll see.
