Server Side Patch to Address Cheating in Theater of War
In an attempt to curb cheating in the online Theater of War (TOW) mode, the dev team has implemented a number of server-side changes to the TOW rules (changes are for both PS3 and X360 versions of EndWar):
1.Matches that last less than 3 minutes will no longer be counted in the TOW. This is to prevent people from logging into the game and losing on purpose.
2.The Theater of War status will have a 30-minute delay before being displayed at www.endwargame.com/tow and on the in-game TOW browser.
3.The XML TOW feed will now display percentages instead of the exact score in territories. (With 30-minute delay)
4.The victory bar in the in-game TOW browser will no longer be locked at 50/50 and will display accurate percentages on each territory. (Also with a 30-minute delay.)
This sever side patch will also revise victory conditions in TOW and make it so that one faction only needs to secure 2 capitols and 30 territories to win.
*Please note that for now the victory condition changes made in this server side patch will not be visible in–game yet. (The changes on the Xbox 360 version of EndWar will take effect once the first title update is available for download. For the PS3 these changes will take effect on a later date.)
