Patch 2.2.8 released!

Sometime has passed since the last update, but it has all been for good reasons. In the background, or on the discord rather, this patch has been gestating and tested on a weekly basis to include bigger balance changes than can be achieved in a simple one month patch!

Big Features

  • EUROPEAN REWORK- Chrono Legionnaires have been moved to T3, and Sonic Enforcers moved up to T4, with related balance tweaks. This is to help make Europe slightly easier to combat on T3, as the Sonic Enforcer/Bishop combo was incredibly powerful, but it also provides them with more mobility and versatility earlier on. Chrono Legionnaires were also underused in multiplayer, making them more relevant now. Furthermore, Speedways have been completely removed and instead Warp Nodes now also buff the speed of surrounding units.
  • UNIVERSAL SELF HEAL CHANGE- Thanks to a new feature from AlexB, the developer of Ares, it is now possible for combat to prevent self healing- and that is applied to Red-Resurrection. Now, a unit will not self heal for 10 seconds after taking damage. This is great as it prevents certain units being unkillable in certain situations due to out healing damage, such as a single Rocketeer vs a Crazy Ivan. This affects most units in the mod, so healing may be adjusted in future patches to compensate.
  • TWENTY-TWO BRAND NEW MULTIPLAYER MAPS- many made exclusively for this mod, and all of great quality!
  • And dozens more changes, including many balance adjustments, bug fixes and graphical tweaks.

The patch can be downloaded and manually installed, if you are unable to use the client updater for whatever reason.

Well done, these regular updates are great. Are you planning to add more units or factions ?

Japan and Yugoslavia will get reworked a bit so you may see new units for those. Maybe Europe as well, even if they got some improvement this patch. I'd also like to touch on naval gameplay at some point.

At the same time I don't want to overload the mod with useless units so we'll see.
