New art! More fixes! Smarter formations! New spectating options! Uber is in the process of tightening the Gamma experience across the board, and this week’s huge update packs lots of incredible new additions and improvements.

For instance! Uber has taken spectator mode to 11 by allowing spectators to focus on teams and see their resources in real-time. Formations now understand position — flame tanks will now prefer the front, while smaller non-knockout units will prefer the back. Also, Uber has re-added the ability for players to load systems in the background.
