Download and connection issues (IP v6)

Dear commanders,

we are receiving a lot of complaints about unavailable services. In detail the What’s new? tab in the client, downloads from our content servers (maps, mods, replays, etc.) are broken for all users using IPv6.

We are aware of this issue and sorry for the inconvenience. While fixing the server setup might take a while, a confirmed workaround is deactivating IPv6 on your computer. Our fellow contributers have created a walkthrough how to do that on Windows 10 in our wiki here (use on your own risk).

Patch 3704 Release

Today marks the release of Patch 3704.

 

We have prepared an array of changes aimed at introducing some fixes, increasing unit options and improving the interfactional balance.

Two of the major changes include the new and improved scathis, now a game-ender class weapon that can destroy entire bases with just a few volleys, and a rebalance of mobile shields which reduces their energy maintenance, making them much easier to use in the earlier stages of the game.

Patchnotes can be found here: http://content.faforever.com/patchnotes/3704.html

FtXCommando and Morax win Councillorships

The election results are in!

FtXCommando has been reelected to the Player Councillor position and Morax has won the election for the Maps & Mods Councillor position.

Through the voting process the FAF Community has expressed high confidence in the candidates’ capacities to uphold the duties of the highly privileged Councillorships. Both individuals have long been pillars of the FAF Project, and the Council of Setons is immensely proud to work with such committed advocates for improving players’ experiences on FAF.

Congrats again to FtXCommando and Morax for winning the elections!
