Yes, I have some suggestions, but it is not about balancing, it is about "special effects" (sound and visual), hahaha. Seriously, have you played the "Shock Therapy" mod? it improves a lot the special effects of the game. I think the patch would be better if it uses some of these improvments. For example:

- Allied walls rescaled to fix hub-to-segment gaps.
- Tank shells have their respective models and trails
- Camera shake for more awe inspiring explosions
- All aircraft death fx slightly improved
- New smoke trails, unique for each faction
- Added camera shake to all scale-worthy explosions
- Naval and Amphibious units water locomotor slightly improved to prevent units being stuck at beaches

Off course you would have to ask for permission to the Shock Therapy's mod author first.

And for balancing, I am not an expert, I think the patch adds an overall improvement, but if I can suggest something (taken again from shock therapy), it could be:

- King Oni: Added melee attack weapon. Bull Rush ability limited activation range to use it's full capacity.
- Tank Buster: Ambush Support Power delay time decreased from 10 to 5.
- Kirov Airship: Tesla Bombs when heroic, also FX. Death weapon damage and radius increased.
- Dreadnought: V4 Toxic Warheads when heroic, also FX.

Again, I'm not an expert, these are just suggestions, all from the Shock Therapy mod. I know that the patch 1.13 is meant for "balancing" but for what purpose? Answer: to improve the game's experience. And, what would be the consequences of better special effects? Answer: game's experience improvement. So, as I see it, these changes could make this patch 1.13 even better; even more, the improvements already exists and are part of the shock therapy mod! Maybe it is not that much easer to import that changes to your patch but defenitly you could give it a try . Off course you would have to ask for permission to the Shock Therapy's mod author first.
