The new LOD looks amazing. It also increased my performance a bit.

I dunno, when I played with the whole 'Knights of the Nine' pack, I didn't really have any major issues, thought it all worked pretty well.

It isn't uncommon to have a patch right before an expansion release, since I think they want a stable codebase to work on, then discover bugs as they proceed and fix them and then make sure it all works together, then release when ready.

i know its common to patch a game right before an expanision, but usually it is not more fixes than released in all other patches (1 minor one within the first month of release if i recall). i still stand by it as another shady bethesda tactic. i enjoyed the month ~100 hours i spent playing the game but have no more desire to touch it again or give them any more money. even if fallout 3 gets stellar reviews from everyone here i will ponder and wait 'til i can get a deal on it. oblivion is a fine game. but i am interested in fine developers i can count on and bethesda is far from that for me.
