More Balance Changes in PTE 77337

The PTEs are landing thick and fast now as Uber react to data collected through player games. If you haven’t already, stream some PTE games, Uber will often arrive to see how theory does when it meets reality. People streaming the PTE are taking part in shaping the future balance of Planetary Annihilation.

Nothing mind blowing in this update, primarily it’s some tweaks to changes that were previously made based on player experiences so far. Also the AI is less likely to suicide its commander in an orbital transport.
