Patch v1487 (Pre-tournament balancing)

Postby [EUG]MadMat » Thu 12 Sep 2013 16:05

This patch will be uploaded soon.

BUG FIXES :
- [LINUX & MAC] Fixing a bug keeping some players stucked at the loading screen.
- Fixing a new problem with the production menu : when buying a unit and then another without deploying them, the ghosts would get stuck somewhere outside of the deploy zones.
- Fixing a bug allowing one to select non-visible enemy FOB and get their selection feedback displayed, hence exploiting the bug to spot enemy location.
- Fixing a broken AI behaviour on Trondheim : it was not securing the command zones anymore.
- The servers ("10v10") list was only refreshing a couple of times, and the displaying nothing.
- When loading a Campaign saved game registered between two battles in one turn, and then reloading it, the "Avoid battle" option was not available anymore.
- Fixing a bug about reinforcement units' ghosts' orientation.

Some good stuff.

A lot of things Marshals have been talking about not even touched, though, so maybe there's still more patches coming soon? :|

We've tried to limit ourself to important stuff, for the tournaments' season is starting (Clash of Nations + GO4).
But for game-breaking issue, we shouldn't release balance patch in a while, in order not to impact on the tournament.
That doesn't mean there won't be any more balance patch in the future ...

So that means no balance patches till the end of the tournament?

Assumed as much.
Can't really have significantly changing balance, and otherwise, changes leading up to a tournament, nor is it a good idea during one.

So I'm not surprised to see no changes to the interceptors for instance, despite the significant debate on the matter and the Marshal comments.

But that last line... there is no present plans for more balance patches?
