Hotfix has arrived.

1.7.1 "Hydra" is now live and downloadable through Steam, with some out-of-sync and crash fixes, plus some balance tweaks and fixes. Checksum is 87c8.

We should be compatible with 1.7.0, but if you for some reason want to remain on 1.7.0 or older Here are instructions for reverting to patches since 1.5.4, or special instructions for 1.5.3 and earlier.

Please make sure that any mods you are using are updated for 1.7.1, or your game might not run properly (seriously)

If you discover any bugs in patch 1.7.1, please report them in the bug report forum as usual.

Traits need more balance, a lot more buffs to weaker traits, and more point generation. There should be a way for a FM to get the aggressive assaulter or defender trait.

Hmm interesting rebalances. I think there should be more balances made to the navy, right now it's just so random and I have no idea how to build a navy that functions correctly other than spam subs/spam everything when enough dockyards. Otherwise naval bombers to wreck every ship ig.
I don't know if tanks have a reduced attack bonus in winter, but if they do, it should be increased. Germans kind of lost the war because their fuel froze up in their tanks and couldn't continue the offense.

Nerfs for offensive traits and supply ones?

oof for all my generals/marshalls with those.

They told us that was coming. 15% is a VERY strong bonus, stronger than just about any other single bonus that you'd get from a doctrine level or anything else. A 10% bonus across the board is still well worth the effort of getting for a general in charge of that kind of unit. I don't know about you, but I'll still make effort to farm the Infantry Leader bonus.

I hope they keep working to make some of the weaker ones more of a viable option. And to the guy who said that Aggressive Assaulter should be trainable for those that don't start with Brilliant Strategist, I disagree - some people are just born with greatness, and a knack for things that you just can't teach. That's what that is supposed to represent.

Will there be a 1.7.2 with a fix for the decryption bug?

It is summer vacation time in the Swedish socialist paradise. :D I would be surprised if there was another hotfix.

HMS Hood still only does 22kn...

Pulling from a previous save, or starting a new game? The fix might not go back to games already running.
