-Two years since their creation, we've introduced the gameplay changes that the Community discussed in the Gameplay Re-Balancing
forum to standard XR.
-These changes have been selected, discussed, tweaked, voted and finally approved by a hardcore think-tank of Newerth Admins, over month-long debates.
-The 2 new units present in Evolution (the Mech and the Glider) are NOT included in this update. In the near future, following public feedback, their gameplay features will be redesigned and subjected to the same Community scrutiny that produced the other widely accepted gameplay changes.
-The full list of changes that were first implemented in the Evolution sandbox mod when XR 1.0 was launched, and now they made it to standard XR, can be found here
Even after discussions spanning more than 180.000
views and more than 1000
replies, the changes above ARE SUBJECTED TO FURTHER TWEAKING pending community feedback! Nothing is really ever final with Savage, so do not panic and enjoy the game
. After a while, without anything new added to the table, any game becomes dull, right?

Most, if not everything (good) of the above was made possible through Clemens' efforts. The bad ones are on me
.IF there are requests or complaints, like for instance regarding the new Friendly icon that replaced the old, low res one, please post your feedback in a readable fashion instead of hating ingame, where we can't read . Thanks.
