Patch # 23 - The Big One
Today we are happy to announce to releases of the first major patch since we officially launched Arcana expansion last week. With thousands of players online enjoying the game, and helping the development team on the forums we were able to discover some previous unknown bugs, as well as track down some issues we had in-game for a while. Tonight`s patch fixes bigger half of the current problems you`ve reported while playing the game this past week.
And while this patch might be quite large and an important milestone - unfortunately it doesn`t include fixes some issues like multiplayer lag or multiplayer sync problems - we hope to address in the coming week though in the patch 24.
Also please keep in mind - this patch will require us to take the game server offline for a few minutes. And in addition all of you would need to get this update in order to play the game. In some cases this will require restarting Steam couple of times.

Looks like a great patch, the fix for the wall segments not building will be awesome, I'll be happy when my walls are fixed :D. Also the balance adjustments also look great, especially the wizard and lightning storm balance!
Have you considered lowering the amount of army strength rating each ogre unit gives, considering they are now substantially weaker?
