  • Units are no longer able to continue targeting enemies indefinitely when positioned on ledges
  • Units will now recover from routing whilst inside their own capture circle

  • Moved Friendly Fire notification to prevent covering the base capture bars
  • Switching Commanders with a full squad will no longer cause a "Profile out of Sync" message when matchmaking

I'm disappointed that auto-replenish of consumables wasn't fixed this patch. It's been fixed in all the previous patches. These patch notes seem bare without it.

I just received a closed beta invite, but my wargaming.net account's email is no longer available to me.  We changed ISP's and the old email account is closed once everything transferred.  I have no way of joining the beta using that account.  I have created a new account at wargaming.net for this and was wondering if I could be sent another invite.  I can PM an admin with the information or please let me know a contact to remedy this.  Thanks again.  :)

The main issue with me is cav. They can literally charge a unit run right past anything besides spear men or pike-man , which is crazy to me. i can sit behind a unit of spearmen, pikemen, etc. and the cav can just rotate around really easily. even if you only have basic infantry, cav shouldnt work like that. if players want to spearhead into a group they should be penalized. this is what happens. cav charges into infantry and can run right past with out a penalty major penalty. granted i understand they can charge through armies. but enough to where they get no penalty going for archers. if the dont get attacked from flanks when your cav you can just run through the front line which is silly to me
