Since this patch was released Original War has basically died.
Not sure why, but almost no people have been online the past 2-3 weeks. I have only managed to play one game the past few weeks..
From the looks of it some people have gone back to 18.104.22.168 (Which uses a lower Protocol Version, so you wouldn't see 22.214.171.124 games on 126.96.36.199). Some have recently stated that they can't do multiplayer games with the latest version, i am guessing because of Issue 52
but so far i don't know if 188.8.131.52 fixes issues people are saying they are having.
The problem as usual is people say "Multiplayer doesn't work, we are going back to <previous version>". No real information on the problem, or any testing on the intermediary versions to help narrow any problems down.
