Eastern Front Patch 1.01
Wow, what a week.
We have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback and sheer volume of downloads. Just two days after Eastern Front was released, the Company of Heroes multiplayer system Relic Online reached record numbers of players as thousands upon thousands of RTS fans signed in to try out the new Soviet faction. If you haven’t played online yet, then you are missing out – our online community is brimming, and there are always matches ready to play in the lobby.
However, it would be unwise to say that there have been no teething problems. Thanks to the community, we have recognised several balance issues and bugs. We are going to be releasing some patches over the coming weeks to address these errors, and we thank you for meanwhile understanding our position as amateur developers and enjoying our mod. And remember, if you are experiencing technical difficulties, then we have probably already solved your problem. Visit the Bugs and Tech Support section of our forum and have a good check through.
Furthermore, Apex, the Lead Designer for Eastern Front, is sadly taking a rest from modding. We will be losing a great leader and a brilliant asset to our team; without Apex, this mod wouldn’t be what it is today. His dedication and abilities are so unmatched that it has taken four people to replace his extensive duties. We all wish him very well in the future.
Today we are releasing our first patch 'Spanner' to fix some early-game balance issues. They are only subtle changes, but we feel that it will make the game more enjoyable for some of the more competitive players. Check the Changelog to find out more. Our next patch will contain more bug fixes, but we hope that this has eased some of the 'overpowering' issues that have been present.
To download the patch, just hit 'Check for Updates' in the Eastern Front Launcher. However, you must ensure that you have downloaded Eastern Front Launcher version 2.4, because otherwise it won't detect this patch or any future updates. You can grab the working launcher from here.
For our TeamSpeak regulars and anybody else who wants to join in with the banter, we have hosted a replacement server which you can access by punching the following details into your TeamSpeak Client:
Thank you for trying out the mod,
Eastern Front Team
