The problem I see with the coming patch is it adds more cool stuff but fixes none of the broken things.
1. AI pathing - biggest issue for pvp right now
2. Resource drought - late game, it take days to farm 100k wood and a single building or upgrade can cost that, this is very unfriendly to most game players here.
3. Humans are broken. They have nothing to lose late game, only gain. Their garrisons heal, their injury rates mean they lose basically no units ever with vega/elena combo everyone runs as well as then adding bishop or king titles to it. It means other races in the long run are just unviable at the moment. Fun to play yes, powerful if you don't lose, absolutely, but some form of balance to make it more appealing to a broader player base would be nice to see, so its not 90% humans 7% lich 3% whale dwarfs.
