The beta version of patch 8.1 is available now to try out. This patch aims to fix some of the key issues in siege battles, and rebalances the campaign AI to play more aggressively and focus more heavily on tactics. Of course, we’ll continue to patch well into next year, but for now, we hope you enjoy the improvements.
