The Multiplayer Lobby has been updated (and restarted) to fix a bug where an incorrect profile ID was selected for the rating system update, because nicknames selection was case-insensitive.
Seems like Microsoft FINALLY fixed font substitution / font fallback in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18305 and crown from my nickname ~eW`~>♔Dr.MonaLisa is back :)
The function from Minor Update 156020 (allows observers to send messages and flares to players in game) has been updated to disable this feature for rated (skirmish, tournament) games.
We might open two new Departments at the Ministry of Game Affairs in 2019. No more details at the moment.
Merry Christmas 2018!

Minor Update 157002 for Unofficial Patch 1.5 has been released! Changes list: https://forum.ee2.eu/viewtopic.php?p=24253#p24253
EE2.eu Server address has changed. It might be needed to clear DNS cache (in case you can't access EE2eu). CMD -> "ipconfig /flushdns". It's caused by the migration at the same provider (I ordered the same service from the Black Friday promo).
A new "EE2eu SERVER Status & Loads" web page has been created. It's available at: https://www.ee2.eu/status
I also fixed website/launcher scripts downtimes everyday at ~00:08, 12:08, 03:08 CET. They were caused by database backups which locked Mysql tables for writing. Since we use InnoDB the lock has been removed and "single-transaction" added. No more lags should be noticeable :)
In last days I have detected some performance problems on the Server, possibly caused by BOTs scanning the forum. It could result in error 500x messages. From now on: forum, website, launcher and local scripts use separated PHP pools to prevent issues in important modules.
MULTIPLAYER: 29-31 October 2018: NATNeg module has been updated. The game should no longer hang for long seconds when joining rooms. Fixed an issue where NAT & MonaNAT® didn't work when joining games from invites. We have temporary enabled a BOT to detect MonaNAT® effectivity
MULTIPLAYER NEWS: We fixed an issue where NAT and MonaNAT® never worked from a game invite acceptation. Huge thanks for help in testing to Tojo and Loewenherz.

Hopefully everyone will be satisfied now. Cam Fix ver 5.1 + more middle mouse button actions, configurable by the Maximization Helper ;)
The new 1.5.7 camera is not so perfect. Seems like calculating new angles based on the original camera settings wasn't the best idea. But no worries, there will be an update fixing angles at zoom-in, and maybe zoom-out.
Tweet me what's your favorite UP1.5.7 feature! I personally love Middle Mouse Button for camera rotation and the new Cam Fix with fixed sounds when zoomed-out.

The Next Big Thing Is Coming Soon.
New feature at https://t.co/yYrBOSS7kp! You can test your Internet connection and speed to the EE2.eu Server. It's only available for Multiplayer users who logged-in to the Multiplayer Lobby during last 3 days. https://www.ee2.eu/speedtest/
We have detected an issue where the number of "Units Destroyed" can be incorrectly calculated and incorrectly shown after game (on "Stats" -> "Military 1" screen -> "Units Destroyed"). The fix was already prepared and will be available in the next monthly Minor Update (156035).
