Sorry if I sound like a broken record but...
- partially revert the "lock-on targeting" behavior:
If a user-selected target moves out of range, the lock is
now broken as it used to be and automatic targeting is not
blocked anymore (though this can take some SlowUpdate's).
For ground-attack orders it is still in place, since the
behavior seems to be preferred (so a unit that is told to
attack a position and then to move away will keep firing
even when other targets are available)
That's not preferred behavior for ground targets. Keeping on attacking a ground target while moving has always been possible (shift-move command while attacking ground) and only in rare situations was that used or useful. Whereas attacks on ground that you want to end by a move command happen every game.


It is also quite confusing for people not aware of it, see for example

Btw.. all ZK, XTA, Cursed, NOTA, S44, PA, ProEVO servers, some BA servers running with Spring 91.0, but Spring Lobby and TASclient dont let you play there, becouse "89.0 is live!". This situation is the same for last few days. Its good way how to kill sources of new players :x

So is 91 the one we get to start advertising or do we still have some experience breaking bugs?

bugs that are still there :
- cons bumping into building forever still exist (BA 7.71)
- unit still cannot go through paths where you reclaim the dragon teeth, you still need to manually micro manage every single unit in order that work (meaning you better spend time optimize eco and play brutal air/nuke/...). New trick is to build DT and then to reclain them: you don't lose metal but still that has the same effect....

things you should know by now:
  • the default pathfinder system does not instantly update when a terrain change happens
  • the time it takes to update is proportional to the amount of changes happening across the map
  • the hole created by reclaiming some DTs can be smaller than the search resolution chosen for a path
  • it's pointless to keep reporting about these old bugs/design problems, there already exists a magic solution called QTPFS
