Post news RSS Releasing Complex Enhanced 8.6.1

Our development recently was focused around testing and balancing in multiplayer. This will hopefully remain a constant element - everyone is more than welcome to join us on tunngle in our new own network! In a few hours, the 8.6.1 release will be uploaded, bringing a lot of bug fixes and balance changes to the game.

As some of you have probably already seen my latest balance report (Complexenhanced.userboard.net), you might already know that there are a lot of elements in the game that needed immediate attention. One might argue that we haven't given testing enough time, however I need to point out that we came to the same conclusions during the insider testing. The early game will hopefully no longer be broken due to intruders, as well as the midgame will hopefully not necessarily be ruled by swarms of shiries destroying everything in their way.
