New beta build! https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:Finalizing_Multiplayer#Beta_2.811_Brief_Beta_For_Balance

So you do need to use the current_beta build on Steam or GOG to see it.

(I see your eye twitch! Don't worry, this won't be a beta that lasts for months.)

At the moment, we're in the middle of rebalancing a few things (as much as possible in a way to not mess with existing saves/campaigns) to allow for more valid styles of play. We may be adding a few lobby options in pursuit of that, but as much as possible I'm hoping to have a unified experience that is less power fantasy and more guerrilla warfare like the game's roots have always been. (I mean, Fallen Spire exists for the power fantasy already).

Anyhow, since we're in the middle of doing that, plus adding a bunch of mechanics and things for DLC2, there's a greater than average risk of bugs, and we also don't want the average player to get caught in the crossfire of discussion back and forth on what makes for the most wide array of ways to play. So we'll take a few days in beta to get that stuff sorted, and then pop back to the main channel again.

There's some really excellent stuff Zeus is working on mainly for DLC2 right now, so those who are testing that please do direct your attention to the Zenith Architrave. That got a major bunch of additions in this build. And it's his birthday!

CRCGamer and Strategic Sage and I, among others, are looking at a couple of axes of balance in the base game, and trying to make sure that remains as engaging as possible. The low-AIP style of play has been stifled recently, so I'm working to make that more viable, among other things. It's all this-week stuff. Hopefully mostly tomorrow-stuff.

Enjoy!
