Useless Human Updates…


I look forward in abusing the hell out of the new cannon tower


Although I’m happy with the updates in general, there appears to be some issues with custom games.

Many reports of people crashing when trying to browse custom games. Also when clicking on a custom game in the list, you’re sent back to the chat/Battle.net welcome screen and can only join a game by typing it in.


-nativefullscr on the shortcut still doesn’t work for me. I just get a black screen with sound. Anyone else having this problem?


I don’t think this will be enough to rein in the KotG meta. Treants and entangle were already strong skills for years, it was the buff to tranquility and access to mana to be able to cast both his spells comfortably that overpowered him. Getting more moon well mana, more base mana, more regen, lower treant mana costs in a race that already has 2 shop items to generate mana at tier 1 meant KotG changed from being an entangle dispenser to ‘archmage with a free brilliance aura’


I can’t play this game anymore as my ping is too high, no matter what server I connect to. THANKS BLIZZARD


I cant create an account!

I get a error after clicking “ok” in the account creation screen: “An error occurred while processing the request.”


I find it hard to believe the Alchemist has not been touched considering his obscene level of power in the meta.


Please consider the possibility of pre-set control groups in the options alongside custom hotkeys


Thank you :slight_smile:


I face exactly the same problem. Furthermore I can’t properly uninstall the PTR Version :confused:

This patch is bad. Elf is still op as ***** , seriously montagn giant are op, hunts with moonglaive t2 are op, kotg is op, alchi is op, at least you nerf glaives but cmon …
-1 dmg to treant and - 1 sec to tangle lvl 2 ONLY ON HEROES ?! it insulting… blizzard, it is time to consider point of view of pros players instead of doing random buffs/nerfs it seems you don’t know what are you talking about.
Remember you should balance the game based on 1vs1 matchup, not on 4vs4…


edit: I changed the location, still get the same error though. An error occurred while processing the request
