Well so far it's all systems go! I haven't had another DX crash yet after playing for a few turns and using the built-in IRC client. The game seems to be running smoothly for now.
For all the talk of the game being fundamentally broken due to this or that issue, up until 1.1 I was sincerely enjoying it. I love the art style and I don't mind that magic isn't as centre-stage as we were led to believe. I really want 64-bit mode though, and I'll feel quite short-changed if it never comes to WoM. Don't get me wrong, I think there's plenty wrong with the game, but nothing that makes it as unplayable as many seem to think.
ALL I hope for, now, is that the enemy sovs don't still hand you the game by being ridiculously stupid. That's all that stopped me playing at 1.1. I guess it won't take me long to find out.
