Since launch I've downloaded about three patches. Yet I have NO Idea what I'm patching.
There is NOTHING listed on the Game-Update forum!!

Can we please get an update as to what it is we are patching?

If we as a community knew what was being fixed, I think it would quell a lot of the griefing

C'mon Cryptic keep us informed!

The release notes aren't (or weren't, at any rate) working in the launcher, though they were prior to launch. mercifully they appears to be functional again as of this patch.

It wasn't that they weren't working, it's that department not putting anything into it.
