Full version 2.7.2 patch notes

This is mainly a quality of life update with some features that we've already worked on for months between content updates. The chat update has been on our to-do list for a long time, and we've collected highly requested features for it. Hopefully it'll now offer much greater flexibility for the users' chat experience. The Gachapon machine in the Arcade is visually based on the actual gachapon machines commonly seen in Japanese arcades, and after quite some deliberation we ended up making the chat emoji non-tradable (despite Steam precedent) and unique with an Orange cost due to a few reasons: their volume, which might make trading them through Steam cumbersome, and because we wanted to give those players who already had everything more use out of their Oranges. Since the emotes aren't tradable and there's a lot of them, it could be frustrating if there's a specific one the player wanted, so we decided to also make them all purchasable separately in the Shop. At the same time, we significantly lowered the Orange cost for purchasing previous Orange crates to make it easier for new players to acquire all content.
