I only just realised that when a new version of the FAF client is released, there's no obvious notification of this, other than a strange icon in the top right that doesn't seem to bear much relation to the point. Since others have also posted (e.g. in the thread asking for feedback from new players) of not being aware of this, my suggestion is simple:
- in the login page, have a message displayed in the centre of the screen (not hidden away somewhere) if a new version is available
-In the news page, at the top where it currently has the banner message about a temporary fix for a nvidia driver issue, have a message similarly highlighted if the current client version used is out of date
Until I saw a post from someone mentioning about some icon in the top right that you had to click to update your version I was left puzzled by the news that a 2v2 team matchmaker had been released yet no 2v2 option was showing up as an alternative to the 1v1 and custom tabs, and I doubt I'm the only one.
