    Oh awsome. I just dug a little deeper on this and it turns out Epic is updating GoW today. Heres what they are doing for the time being...

    • Fixed aspect ratio distortion when using VGA cable with 4:3 displays at resolutions higher than 640x480
    • Fixed voice issue with new players joining Player Match games in progress
    • Players can now get the Achievement for "Dish Best Served Cold" when using Troika turret to kill RAAM
    • Fixed rare situation where host could loop countdown and never start match
    • Fixed rare situation where players could get stuck after chainsawing in multiplayer
    • Reduced Grenade Tag melee distance
    • Enabled “Strict” NAT check on host to prevent possible connection issues
    • Optimized server browser queries to return results more quickly and prevent scroll bars from hiding quality of service icons
    • Reduced number of possible revives in Execution to match Warzone
    • Removed host name from Ranked match server browser
    • Disabled security cameras in Ranked matches
    • Ranked matches now require balanced teams (3v3 or 4v4)
    • Increased penalty for quitting a Ranked match to -50 points
    • Added additional cheat detection code
    • Additional housekeeping updates

    Its really nice to see how motivated Epic is to make this a more entertaining experience for online gamers. I can't wait to play those maps...

    There are two new maps: Old Bones and Raven Down. The first is a huge map that keeps the trend followed by most GOW maps we know. The second is an extremely short map that is the antithesis to all that, meaning you always appear a few steps away from battle and you can only find a couple of frag granades to help you win it. Raven Down is my favorite of the two.
