Big things to note are the new abilities for Neo and Osprey. Neo now can do a powerful backstab attack while cloaked, and also has a super-stealth activated mode. Osprey has turned to the dark side and has tuned his nano tool to disassemble enemy units as a weapon! Both are experimental and will get ongoing improvements, fixes, and balanced. Feedback is most welcome.

This patch (and the pre-patch just before) was testing out something requested by members of the community: the removal of level requirements to build the more powerful units. These units generally are very expensive, take a long time to build, and use a lot of upkeep, so their feeling was why restrict them? In the end, I think this would make it so the whole game would have to be toned down. Instead I want to see super units stay super units, and put level requirements back on them. But, it was a fun experiment to do along with the community. We like to try things out sometimes especially if the community can make a strong case for it. This system will be changed back for next patch, so last chance to mess around with it!

Lots of significant changes to server selection process. A few bugs were found that potentially allowed some players to escape the servers they should be assigned to, cascading into bad games for whoever they matched with. We also redid how we calculate the estimated pings, and while we were at it we revamped the region map to provide more detailed feedback on which servers are good, ok, and bad. Click the region icons near the bottom when you are queued in any online game to bring it up.
