For you RTW players, what are your thoughts on the new patch? I am just now really getting into the game after leaving it sit in the desk drawer since August. I know that 1.3 was included in the Barbarian Invasion expansion pack. The standalone patch 1.3 was released a few days ago. I know 1.3 has it problems, but I'm not that experienced with the game to really know what is what. It sounds like some of the biggest bugs are: you no longer are notified of Senate offices, pirates are overwhelming (not sure if that is stock RTW or BI; don't remember pirates in 1.2), alliances with the Senate/Brutii/Julii/Scipii can be broken too easily, and the AI doesn't do sea based invasions anymore. I don't remember them doing sea invasions in 1.2 all that well. They would place an army on the boats and leave them floating out in the sea. Despite all that, it sounds like they fixed the save/load bug (I'm still not too sure what that was about).
