Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade patch 1.3.53 is indeed a big patch fixing a lot of issues. This patch addresses deamons, traitors and xenos, while also fixes matchmaking, performance, optimizations, bugfixes and some balancing changes.
Knowing that the Space Marines campaign is behind the corner and comes out tomorrow, May 12, the 1.3.53 patch also involves the campaign. Knowing the ups and downs, the devs are going to involve themselves in the campaign creation and improve their system a bit more.
