Forged Alliance Forever

The community-driven lobby for Supreme Commander : Forged Alliance.

Patch 3636 is here!

It’s been a long time in the making, but patch 3636 is here at last. It’s a patch motivated by exploits and bugs that were in 3634, and as such there are no direct balance changes included. These will be developed as part of the next patch, 3637.

This patch also includes a new 2.5 lobby by Xinnony with major improvements. ¬†Please note we do know of one bug with the new lobby related to CPU scores. ¬† It’s being worked as you read this.

Everyone in all the teams working behind the scenes for FAF hopes you have a great time. Enjoy!
