Initial thoughts on the patch: So far so good.
They patched smoothly and came up on time this afternoon. From what I can see, no new problems have been introduced and the game and many long standing issues have been fixed.
I found this note to be somewhat funny: The “Waiting for server” message has been removed.
So when we are lagging we… just don’t know about it? I rarely saw this message so this change won’t bother me.
On the note of game performance: Bree didn’t lag much at all!
