I'm noticing it's a world away from release. In fact, it's a bit more like Rome 1. I'm also thinking hastati are not doing quite as well as they were before.

I think I'm gonna wait till the official version is released before installing. I already have a couple mods installed that alter the morale, kill rate and other attributes so that battles last 15-20 minutes and since the patch changes/updates the same files that have been modded I don't want it to make the battle mods obsolete just yet.

Definitely want to hear if the patch beta significantly improves and enhances the battles though.

Hearing great things about the combat at the moment from the "Anti-Blob" bridge. Unit cohension has apparently taken a massive step up with the Patch 3 beta. Which is more important for those units with the Formation Attack trait than Barbarians, which are meant to fight individual duels.

Sounds like good things to me.

On a different note, how soon til Seleucids are unlocked?

I had made a quick save just before I was about to be attacked by 7200 Spartans (having 3600 soldiers as Rome myself), I wonder if I should've fought that battle prepatch or not

All factions have been unlocked already by a mod.

Got a chance to finally try out the battles, and they are going in the right direction with the changes.

October. Do not think a specific date within October has been announced yet. Meanwhile you could always use one of the faction unlock mods.
