0 A.D. A25 gameplay patches


Recommended Posts

A24 was released a few weeks ago and development of A25 started with 24939. The purpose of this thread is to keep track of what patches that affect gameplay or balance are proposed or committed for the next release (A25), as this thread did for the previous (A24).

Please refrain from discussing individual patches here. The correct place for that is on Phabricator ( https://code.wildfiregames.com/ ). Each entry (below) has a link to the relevant page.

All open gameplay patches can also be found with https://code.wildfiregames.com/search/query/MwAW9pins9Vt/

You definitely have to bring the discussions to the forums.


Not everything that is approved, they are great ideas, we have to mark the controversial ones.
