"Out of ammunition. God Save the King"This was the message sent by the British forces in the final hours of the struggle for Arnhem Bridge. It was intended for the Allied forces, but it was only heard by the Germans.

MEGA UPDATE IMPROVEMENTS

-Noticeable improvements were made to the way vehicles and soldiers travel to way points and reach the end destination of both simple and highly complex, unhindered paths with a very high degree of success

-Soldier pathfinding was improved so that when soldiers fall behind (heavy weapon or momentarily lost) they plot their own path to successfully rejoin their team

-Vehicle driver and soldier decision making was improved to help them deal with unexpected obstacles (vehicle moving into their way , or wreck that was knocked out in the course of battle to block a path that was already determined), and get out of dead-end locations

-AI improvements were made to be in concert with the re-designed pathfinder

-The "Bee Dance" of CC2 that was related to conflicts between the AI for the vehicle driver and the AI that tried to keep the team moving along the team's path that would result in a conflict about which portion of the AI to follow or "which way to go."

-Many other minor improvements were made and reported bugs were fixed.

MEGA UPDATE IMPROVEMENTS FOR LAST STAND ARNHEM ONLY

-The mechanism for borrowing teams from the reserve battlegroup was redesigned

-The Grand Campaign was redesigned for improved play balance.
