World in Conflict Patch

The World in Conflict Website now offers update 5, a new patch to bring Massive Entertainment's real-time strategy game to version 1.005. Word is: This fifth update fixes some bugs and balancing issues, but also introduces several brand-new features, including a feature that prevents team stacking. This feature, which is completely optional server-side, divides players equally between the two teams in the beginning of every match based on their experience and skill. For more details on this feature, please see this interview with lead game designer Magnus "Soundboy" Jansn [sic]. As always the update will be downloaded and installed automatically when you connect to Massgate, or you can go here and download it manually." Some or all of the manual downloads (which require the proper language edition) are mirrored ActionTrip, AtomicGamer, AusGamers, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, Games32, and The Patches Scrolls.

wic already performs super well. You can play that game with tweaked settings on a 486. Your question is marked invalid and discarded. NEXT QUESTION.

This game and Massive both rule.

These guys are doing an incredible job of supporting this game, -far- better than COH was paid attention to.

The multiplayer could use a few more maps - wicbase.com was running some servers with new maps, but seem to have stopped, which sucks.

The changes they are making recently not only improve gameplay, but they are adding in great stuff for clans support, and this latest patch even includes a setting for people who are colorblind! That's pretty fucking cool.

When WIC comes out on the 360 in Feb., I'll be picking it up instantly, and pitching it to all my pals on 360s.

Anyway, props to Massive for a great game, and even better support.

No rank balancing was the biggest issue I had with the game, if I catch it at 39.99 I think I'll pick it up.

Company of Heroes is a broken game, IMO, ever since Opposing Fronts came out. I really enjoyed WIC's demo though.

The anti-teamstacking option would probably make this game a lot more friendly to the average player. Wonder how many servers will enable it.

These guys are really supporting their baby big time.

They deserve props in this age of quick abandonware.

wic isn't the best game ever, but it really is nearly perfect for what it is. And it is all thanks to the wicked developers over there. GO MAGNUS LOL!
