Yeah, attack move bug seems to have been fixed, gj.

Overall, this playtest looks to be the last one before release.

Was it fixed in this playtest or a previous version?

we've played against each other in 0923 version where it was broken. Now it doesn't seem to arise again, but I'll check more.

To other notes, mainly aimed at mapmakers - explosive barrels now deal MASSIVE damage to surroundings. I.e. new Communications Center gets blown up by only 2 of them. Lucian already noticed this on his Nuclear Winter map I think :)

This is a good time for people to remind themselves of the full changelog compared with the current stable release. Some major changes have been forgotten or ignored with the furor over stances and attack move.

Building targeting change is such a blessing. You won't need to clean all those dozens of barracks and power plants - just attack move and then capture all the rest with engi.

It's both a blessing and a curse, which is why we're also getting the assault move.
