Hi everyone! Last week on Thursday we released Waking the Tiger and it has been a huge success breaking our active user records and is our highest rated DLC on steam for HOI thus far! Thanks everyone who has bought and played it and given us feedback, its super appreciated and the team is really happy!

The plan now is to get the 1.5.1 patch out with the most important fixes we have done. That one has been in open beta since Friday (but updated a few times), so thanks those who have braved its waters and helped us with feedback there too. We just updated that one again as well just now. The plan is to check it for any issues and if it's ok we hope it can go live tomorrow After that we will focus on a more long-term patch where we will have time to address balance issues and more risky changes. That one will be 1.5.2 and will get a rolling opt-in open beta you can participate in until it's done (about 3 weeks or so to give you a rough timespan) which will get updated frequently with fixes/balance updates for those who want to help test.

Overall the release has been very stable, but looking at reports and feedback the things we are focusing on are:
  • Balance. There are several areas, but air involvement in land combat and general strength of spamming air power is a prio.
  • Desynchs in multiplayer. Telemetry data only shows a minor increase of 2% more people desynching, but we are still prioritizing this. 1.5.1 has a few potential fixes but it has proven very hard to nail down the exact reason. If your MP group runs into this feel free to tell us and test on the open beta.
  • Focus tree fixes. Germany not going fascist has had some unforeseen effects as well as other inter-country checks. Hopefully most of this have been taken care of in the 1.5.1 beta now.
The changelog so far on 1.5.1 is as follow:

##################################
# Stability & Performance
##################################
- fixed an OOS that is caused by triggering same event twice
- added CTD safety checks to deployment destruction to avoid random crashes
- Prevented using the Continue button to load an old save from a previous and incompatible save version.
- Possibly fixed new game launch crash with modded initial state where it tries to instantly peace out countries at war
- Better handling of error messages from the DirectX function calls (so now if something goes wrong with rendering, we see what is it about).
- Fixed CTD when selecting planes on a non-owned carrier after a civil war.
- Fixed CTD related to the new division names system.
- Fixed CTD in our code responsible for parsing (searching) the folders and files.
- Fixed CTD when using event add_ofssite_building when it would put the building level below zero.
- Performance improvement caused by add_relation_modifier (seen especially when played with specific mods that use it a lot).
- Added extra safety checks to prevent potential CTDs when joining to a MP session.
- Filtered out superficial unit and country leader values when calculating checksum, to avoid false positive OOS.
- Fixed possible OOS cause when client and host have different sets of leader portraits or names (DLCs and MODs may cause that each player in the session has different portraits/names).
- Added hotjoin and error code details to telemetry for OOS events, which will help us with tracking OOSes that happens to the players.
- Fixed potential OOS if only some of the players are using mods with unit names (related to the ace generation).

Its always interesting to see what people play and like in the new expansion, so we took a look at some telemetry:

What paths do people pick?
Germany:
Rheinland - 55%
Oppose Hitler - 45%

Japan
The Unthinkable Option - 9.5%
Purge the Kodoha Faction - 65%
Support the Kodoha Faction - 16.8%
Strengthen the Civilian Government - 8.7%

People Republic of China
Marxist Orthodoxy - 9.8%
Agrarian Socialism - 81.5%
Social Democracy - 8.7%

Manchukuo
Assertivness - 89%
Obedience - 11% (I guess you guys arent very obedient ;D)

Nationalist China
They dont really have a top level choice like the others, so no data here.

Its early days so I expect these numbers to look different in a week or so :)

Very enjoyable, too bad there is lag on speed 5 already in 1936. Can't be my hardware because before release this worked fine.

@podcat Great work! Thanks for letting us in on the game plan! I have a random question though, why was the Kodoha path made unaligned? Was it because it would be too hard to implement two different fascist parties?

desyncs have happened in every mp game i attended so far and resysncs didnt help, we had to rehost. live version and beta patch alike.
you can help us solve the issue by grabbing the host savegame, and the person desynching's save game. zipping them up and attaching in the feedback thread to the beta patch so we can compare them, or make a new bug report in bug forum. It might be that the 1.5.1 beta solves your issues too, there were a couple of fringe OOS cases solved so make sure to test that if you and your friends are up for it.

Man, once more we are here asking for more historical accuracy in the future DLC. Do you ever read our posts?
I read a lot of posts but I dont have time to respond to all of them :)

It was an example work for other Paradox games as well. Of course, it is not perfect, no expansion has ever been perfect in the history of games but the content and the focus was excellent. I hope devs keep focusing on what matters.

Grey wolfs are waiting to get attention :rolleyes:

Man, once more we are here asking for more historical accuracy in the future DLC. Do you ever read our posts?
No, I just want an enjoyable game and not a history simulator. WtT is a great step in that direction.

All this shows is that people like ahistorical Germany and Manchukuo, but historical Communist China and Japan. And I tend to agree. I enjoyed the Kaiserreich path for Germany, but found communist Japan a bit too implausible.

How exactly can you check this data? Do you get this data from every player playing this game?
Yea, every time a focus is picked we get some data stored so we can see how people play. its super great for balance and detecting branches that are less popular (democratic and commie paths for japan may need some love for example).

Are you planning on nerfing MEFO Bills? Germany getting as many Civs as the USA before going to war is really OP.
probably a bit yes. it takes time to do balance changes so the idea is those go in 1.5.2

And how often do you have to be reminded that *you* don't speak for everyone? You have no right to speak about "we", since that is pure assumption on your part.
