Another maintenance release is out admittedly performing maintenance on the previous maintenance patch, since it introduced a desync issue in multiplayer that was hard to find. Multiplayer activity has been going up and still some balance issues remained unresolved. Mainly ballista and destructive magic remaining too dominant and balance of neutral stacks on the adventure map.
RC18g bug: fixed cause of LAN desync

Unupgraded stacks will no longer randomly add upgraded stack in combat
Shooters and casters will always appear in mixed stacks. This also applies for Fortress Flame Lords.

RC18h was replaced by RC18i.
Fixes: - Dash was added to the wrong Rakshasa upgrade - RMG was not generating 'single stacks' for stronghold melee creatures - added additional melee-only army combinations for alternative upgrades to ARMG
They were made possible by the effort of zel86, millenary_fater, deintegroo, devr!
Skillwheel app is now available for RC18j including additional language support for Russian, Italian, Polish and a few fixes.
