-Map: Lajesh – a blocking issue has been fixed that prevented a part from a wall to be mountable if the wall was raised from the attacker's side.
-Map: Yrmia – the north base fortifications have been moved closer to the orbs to prevent the enemy from raising that wall as long as the orb is claimed, which should now properly mirror the situation in the south base.

-Map: Yshia – some of the orbs and power wells have been moved to even out their ranges towards the nearby walls across the map.
Server issues and population caps
Due to load issues on Sunday and Monday we had to reduce the available slots for players that have not fully unlocked the game, yet. We spent the last days analyzing the server behavior and plan to deploy a fix for that with this patch which will address the identified underlying issues. This patch should allow us to increase the slots for Play 4 Free players again significantly. __________________ Olgierd Cypra, Global Community Manager, EA Phenomic
