Cloud Imperium has patched up Arena Commander today as they slowly but surely get ready to roll out more multiplayer slots.

As it stands currently, the vast majority of players can not go head to head but instead have to battle against AI Vanduul ships in waves. This is entertaining for a few rounds but gets tedious quite quickly. The plan is to add more players to the mulruplayer pool as they fire up more servers and squash bugs prior to thr Arena Commander v1.0 release.

The new pacth today fixes some control issues and adds a few improvements to Arena Commander as detailed below.
