Game patch more expensive than brand-new rival game!

Congratulations, eSim!

*sigh*

2.640 is no patch, but an upgrade. It comes as complete, new installation in itself (old installation needs to get deinstalled), and introduces plenty of totally new stuff and features, and adds several new platforms as well as new wireframe models and highres textures replacing already existing platforms, it also replaces parts of the existing engine, improves the sound suite, and replaces old infantry bitmaps with animated 3D models. It includes also plenty of bug-fixing.

It will receive a patch fixing some bugs and unrealistic values later this year - for free.

An upgrade can include patching, but goes beyond that. But a patch never is an upgrade.

Yeah! They call payware patch - an upgrade and freeware patch - a patch.

Think about payware patch costing you about 30 bucks. Think about brand-new complete game costing you the same price...
