We have improved the load time dramatically. The black screen of death should be much shorter now.
We have made some improvements and fixes to the matchmaking code, there are still some unresolved issues remaining which we intend to fix soon.
We have improved the visual update of gold and resources. They should now be correct more often, but there might still be some refresh issues remaining.
Remember to restart Steam if you you are playing right after I post this (It can take Steam some time to send out the update automatically).
