Matrix Games, Slitherine and Western Civilization Software have issued a new patch for Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear!, a faithful adaptation of the renowned Conflict of Heroes board game that won the Origins Historical Game of the Year, Charles Roberts Wargame of the Year and the James F. Dunnigan Design Elegance Award, as well as many others.
The v1.18 update contains numerous fixes as well as rule changes to keep the game balanced and in fit fighting form, including a fix for a recent multiplayer issue. The goal of this and recent updates has been to fully implement the Classic board game AP activation system, as well as adding a host of other features and improvements, including super high resolution 2D maps and counters.
This update includes fixes for units low on APs not being able to fire during a group fire, as well as a fix for spent units attached to groups during a Command or CAPs action incorrectly becoming unspent. Additional tweaks include the pass action now finishing the activation of currently selected units in Classic AP mode.
