Default Patch # 20 - Pathfinding & Arcana Expansion Preview

The long awaited Pathfinding Update is finally here, in Patch 20, bringing with it improved performance and a new way of controlling units. Also included as part of Patch 20 is an early release full preview of the free Kingdom Wars: Arcana expansion - giving current players a chance to try out the new units, spells and buildings before the official launch of the expansion to coincide with a big promotion later this month. Please keep in mind that this huge update is and early access release - thus containing some bugs, and stability issues.

ya same thing, lag is far to crazy and I have a great computer and played before with no issues.
will take a break from the game until its better no way I will risk buying a mage to lose him in all this lag either.

Guys - we could really use more info on the lag issues - as this is one thing we haven`t been able to reproduce. Two questions:
-How good are your comps - Quad CPUs?
-Does the main menu lag that crazily as well, or just inside Online Kingdom?
-Are you using Steam version of a client or our own client?
