Better late than never!

Plenty of positive and much needed changes in those patch notes. Good timing as well I've just started a new long campaign as the Austrians and the Polish have been making a nuisance of themselves.

Although I'm still annoyed at the buggy mess it was at release CA have really shown that yes, you can polish a turd ;)
