CM Notes on rules for Co-Op campaigns:
Only the owner of the campaign earns the prizes from the campaign.
Anyone who is in the target when it’s defeated earns a treasure chest that drops one of the following shards: Missile Defense System III, Hyper 30 Installation, Reinforced Reactive Armor, or Reinforced Chromium Armor.

[Event Schedule] The August monthly event is being pushed out a week and now starts on August 16th. An additional Forsaken Mission will run in the meantime.
[Visual] Premium gift costs appeared incorrect in game but were correct in the Facebook purchase screen.
[Visual] Greta's Inferno Dragon reduced in scale on World Map.
[Visual] Added missing timer on Base Activity when using R&D.
[Crash] Replica bases with an excessive number of duplicated buildings were causing the battle server to crash. These bases have been removed from the replica base set.
[Retrofit] Reinforced Chromium Armor (Special) incorrectly listed in a Retrofit group. Removing it will not impact its performance as it did not receive a benefit from being in that group.
[Combat] The Phlogiston Launcher II fails to trigger a shockwave.
[Research] Creating Advanced Systems in the Outpost has no timer.
[Other] Additional minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
