Age of Empires II: HD Edition Update, Patch 5.2:
First thing first. I will start with the network improvements. There is no longer going to be a network delay at the beginning of the game. The minimum command delay is significantly lower.
This allows a better performance. Also, the throttling system will now allow faster network speeds.
Community fixes are made to AI, soldiers and villagers. AI will no longer freeze during a game. Soldiers will now attack the wonder properly and will not get stuck in a loop. Villagers will respond to attacks and they can attack towers correctly.
Here are some balance improvements as well:
- Malay cheaper fishing ship cost removed
- Elite Camel Archers +1 bonus attack vs infantry removed
- Harbors reload time increased from 2.5s to 3s
- Elite Arambai search radius increased by 2
