Thanks for your continuing support, and we are happy to present you the long awaited patch 1.17.
Probably the longest patch name we had to date- and you should soon find out why we called it The Large One as you are downloading this huge update - hundreds of megabytes large.
As for the rest of the title:
"Beauty" - you`ll notice quite a few visual changes inside the game - from transparent interface, to updated textures in-game
And as for "Beastly Performance" - everyone should see better visual performance, as we continue to optimize the graphical engine.
In addition - dozens of bug fixes and minor additions across the board.
As always, we would welcome your feedback on balancing, as we`ll continue to make adjustments to unit stats, and army strength all the way until the Big Update hopefully by the end of Summer. We will continue with another patch this August.
And please also drop by this post, as we are debating what major update for late-game our players want to see. http://steamcommunity.com/app/227180/discussions/0/530646080851814093/
