Rocketeer Balance and Diamond Prices

6-Jul-2015

Small update that brings some balance data for the Rocketeer new Infantry unit and makes it safe to turn on for everyone. We do know there's some bugs with it's behavior, but as a brand new type of behavior we expect that. When in the air it's upkeep increases by one, which is why you see it listed as zero on the stats, but this is not correct.
