Dude, hostbots have been gone for ages. We’re more likely to get our classic wc3 back than that.

I take old wc3 any day, i also can have bots back then kekw

good stuff.

things to look at are dryads and headhunders, because they are too costeffective in my opinion and hardenend skin, because the absolute damage reduction is still laughable, make it 8 down from 12 and it might be still too good …

Were is our bots?

Think the current way where every players are forced to registering through discord is better. Ensures higher skill levels - and people care more about bad behaviour.

Mostly great changes that will hopefully push the game in the right direction. Also, it’s good that you reduced most of the initial changes because honestly, the game is in a quite good state already.

I’m slightly worried about the 5s human tower repair buff. That’s a 33% repair rate buff on Scout Towers. I hope that buff doesn’t push us back to old days where human played a variety of tower rushes/pushes against elf and orc. :frowning:

Concerning the Knight buff, I would have liked the Tauren Pulverize approach. Give the unit a reduced version of the spell on default rather than providing the entire upgrade for free. Giving the entire upgrade for free removes some degree of decision making, which is always bad for the game.
Maybe that would also be the correct approach to give Mountain Giants a reduced version of Hardened Skin on default as compensation for their big taunt nerf.

Cool to see balance changes in action soon!

Pessimist in me says:

  • sad to not get new maps
  • sad to not get an outlook of whats next

Please keep us in the loop

Did you know bots made us able to enforce rules and bans to deal with gameruiner, flamers and trolls?
But yea not being able to change name to avoid bans is a neat feature to have when you can’t ban people in the first place :upside_down_face:

Maybe fix the 5 fps menu bug …

If you have a desktop, turn off you onboard graphics = zerolag. Sorry if you have a laptop.

Glad that you’ve reduced reselling value to 60%. Let’s see where this patch gets us.

It would be nice, if the next patch would include maps which community has developed so far. I wish there would a communication channel between developers and map makers. Balance in the game is not only achieved by balance patches, but also with good maps!

Great! Now u can just delete Night Elf from the game.

Playing vs HUMAN was already a nightmare. Now it will be simply impossible.

GREAT JOB!
