Legion v0.17.0 released

We’re continuing to process your reports, monitor your games, and just generally improve the polish of the faction. So there’s a lot of little balance improvements here to improve the viability of some of less common units, and also some potential minor disruption to existing metas.

The Stoke also has a new model. It’s mighty sexy.
