Agreed, I think Panda is long gone and the updates we see are the just continuation of the standard quality updates. I think things veered off when I surmised that the updates affect the economy. Apparently they affect only my economy and a handful of others. My apologies for that.
Right now it's not the updates at all, it the localization and other UI changes that are clobbering our positions.
