Specifically, it prevents Gamespy's servers from being overloaded, and therefore reduces the impact on those servers that were causing the game to stutter and lock up.

I've installed the patch and so far I've got no problem with the game. Since I'm still in the early stage of the game I'm not sure whether I will face any problem in future missions.
