Why not wait until the downloads were ready before posting?

Because development releases show a notice on startup that links to the feedback thread for that version. So I need to create the thread before creating the release :)

Sorry for the lack of feedback lately, but I am on a smartphone only for the time being. I guess we need a TOL release for Ubuntu Touch ;)

However I think the mini map is currently placed very badly as tol has quite a bit of vertical action and thus it blocks the view.

I agree. IMHO, a mini-map should stay in a corner of the screen, and the armor icons should stay near the health icons...
