By August 27, 2019No Comments

This is DEFINITELY our biggest patch ever. Tons of quality-of-life improvements. Lots of item and ability balancing. Two new map districts, plus a reworked spawn area. Custom lobbies for matchmaking. And the groundwork was laid for a spectator system. All in one patch. Which is now live. Here’s everything we did:

  1. Added prototype for cosmetics store. Players can purchase the Ogre Helmet for 500 coins.
  2. Added custom game matchmaking. Players can create a lobby code and search for the code to join a custom lobby.
  3. Directional damage indicators now fade out instead of instantly disappearing.
  4. Hints now displayed in loading screen, death screen, and lobby. Hints can be disabled in the gameplay settings.
  5. Removed auto hosting new match when searching for a game fails.
  6. Killfeed now states when you were killed by a turret or a minion that is owned by an enemy player
  7. Added a Screen Damaged effect when a player drops below 25% health.

  16. Rogue AI camps will now increase their power level each time they are cleared. Rogue AI will gain a health and damage bonus percentage multiplied by their camp’s level.

  26. Added a chat window to the HUD. Global chat is working in this patch. Team chat is coming soon.
    1. Players can press “M” to mute the chat, however chat can not be un-muted. This is a temporary feature in case the chat system breaks or gets spammed during this week’s playtesting.
