LATEST UPDATE = 03/24/10
Quote from S2Games:
Due to the changes in the interface files, it is highly likely that interface mods will not work.

Uninstall them.

It's finally time!

Patch Notes (with pretty pictures) are below.

- Fixed the US Regions for Matchmaking
- Disabled custom avatars...

- Fix joining game on the game list
- Fix game lobby enter key not working sometimes

Version 0.3.0

- New Front End Interface

- Solo Automatic Matchmaking
* With one button you can enter the queue for as many different regions as you want and play with random other people automatically. This does not use PSR, it uses SMR (Solo Matchmaking Rating) and everyone starts at 1500. Mode is Banning Pick.
* Players tagged as "leavers" can not join Matchmaking
* Players who leave a game before it starts (during the 'loading' phase of a game) will automatically be replaced by someone else.
* If you leave a Matchmaking game at the hero selection screen, you will get a leave

- Tutorial
* New ingame interactive Tutorial to help new players learn the basics of the game before diving in. Even experienced players might learn something!

- New Player Stats screen
* Including your most played heroes!

- Hero Compendium
* See detailed stats and recommended items about every hero

- Ingame Ladder page
* Search and filter the ladder to compare yourself to those at the top. Any number of options can be turned on and filtered!

- New Game Lobby

- New Hero Picking screen
* Now with 12 more slots for new heroes! How did we do that?!?


- You can now swap the placement of the minimap from the bottom left to bottom right hand corner
- Leaver threshold lowered to 5%
- Fix for StatusStealth
* This fixed an issue that was causing Witch Slayer and Pollywog Priest's crowd control abilities to dispel all states off the target
- Updated br stringtables, thanks to Trilles
- Recommended Items Updated
- Item cursor now changes to a targeting cursor when hovering over an allied unit
- Stacked items (runes of blight, mana potions, health potions) will now sell for their full total value within 15 seconds of purchasing them. (e.g. if you buy two health potions for 200g then sell them within 15sec, you will now correctly gain 200g)
- Logger's Hatchet can now be sold within 15 seconds of buying it (but not if you used it)
- Added "Host:" and "Version:" to the /gameinfo and /gi commands in game, also added the server version for display in the game lobby screen
- Fixed when heroes were 'running in place' after using a Homecoming Stone
- Added messages to the game lobby for the following actions:
1) When the host assigns someone as the new host
2) When the host assigns someone as a spectator
3) When the host assigns someone as a referee
4) When the host locks or unlocks a slot
- Removed 'remove hero' button in practice mode for now
- Tweaked the position of ancients

- Invisible Mode added
- Fixed a bug in the game setup interface where referee count was incorrectly being set to the count of spectators chosen
- Fixed a bug in the game lobby where the current player count exceeded the max player count in games with spectators(2) and referees(1). e.g. "Players: 13/10". Now shows the correct max player count to match the main lobby game browser numbers. e.g. "Players: 13/13"
- Added flood protection to the chat server to protect against invite to clan spam and create clan attempts
- Fixed an issue causing the change password functionality in game to not work correctly.
- Fixed an issue on the chat server where in certain cases players were not properly being promoted/demoted
- Optimized client code so game server refreshes should no longer hang the client or user interface.
- Chat channels can now be saved via the interface and will be automatically joined when logging in.
- Added new "Ping" filter next to the "Full Games" checkbox. It filters the results on the client so only pings less the chosen number populate the game list
- Added a new filter option to the server browser "Game Mode:" section called "Advanced". It allows players to filter multiple game modes (ie. SD, BD, BP) all at once locally in the client. Upon selecting 'Advanced' a small panel pops up and the player can choose the game modes they want to see in the game list just by selecting the appropriate checkbox then clicking OK
- Default SFX volume down to 0.6 from 0.7
- Fixed an issue with the chat server where if a user sent a message using /b or /m and someone on one of those lists was in /dnd mode, it wouldn't send the message to all the people on the list.
- Overhauled how adding buddies/friends works. You now must request friendship before someone is actually added as your friend.
* You can request friends when offline and they will get the notifications upon logging in, and approve at their convenience
* We might have to wipe current friends lists at some point in the future for this to work correctly.

- Added new search support for filtering games by name:
* Added feature to allow players to type in multiple search phrases. By typing a search phrase and adding a ?|? the client will distinguish one phrase from another. The browser will then search the available games and show any games showing any one of the phrases separated by a "|".
* Added feature to allow players to exclude certain games based on the search phrase. By typing in a "-" at the beginning of the search phrase the client will automatically filter any games with "Phrase" to not show up. Note that exclusion of search terms takes precedence over inclusion. (Excluding a term, and then trying to include the same term will cause it not to appear, ie ?noobs|-noobs?)
* The "|" and "-" can be escaped with a "\" should the player want to search on a game with the pipe or hyphen in it.
* All searches are color and case insensitive, and the order that the search phrases are entered have no effect on how they will display. So "1500|-no ab" is the same as "-no ab|1500".

Some examples:
*Search Phrase: "1550|1600|1650|-no ab|-noobs" - This searches on any game with "1550", "1600", and "1650" in the name, and if it has the words "no ab" or "noobs" in it it will not display.
*Search Phrase: "-no ab|1500|1550|-countryname|ab" - This searches on any game with "1500", "1550" and "ab" in the name, and if it has the words "no ab" or "countryname" in it it will not display.
*Search Phrase: "1500|\-SDEM|pipe\|test" - This searches on any game with "1500", "-sdem" and "pipe|test" in the name.

Quote from Someone:

was going to get some love this patch, but... well...

Too Bad!

Version 0.1.65


- Significant Lane Creep AI changes
* These all involve the assist trigger that causes the creeps to aggro you when you attack an enemy hero:
1 - When a hero causes the assist trigger to go off, there is a 200ms delay before the creeps will turn and come at you
2 - Creeps will chase for exactly 1600ms (down from 1800ms)
3 - If a creep is in the middle of an attack animation but has not hit its attack impact point (600ms), it will de-aggro and stop its attack as long as you are out of it's short melee range
* AKA: Creeps will not finish attacks they start on you if they hit the end of the trigger
4 - A creep must deal damage before it can be called by the assist trigger again
* This means if you tug, they must turn around and actually deal damage to a unit before it can chase again
5 - You must be within 600 units of an enemy hero to cause the assist trigger to go off

- Updated the ramps to be better

Quote from Someone:

Now, this is a story all about how
This game got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how we balanced the game and made it so fair

Near bot lane-n-jungle, he sat and gazed
At the full lane was where he spent most of his days
Chillin' out hittin' denyin' all cool
And sendin' all the kids back to the pool
When a couple of guys, who were up to no good
Startin' making trouble in his neighborhood
He lost one big fight and raged everywhere
Then demanded we all make the game way more fair!

Y'all said we're so bad and had all this fear
That no change would be fresh since we won't do a mirror
If anything you said that such a patch is rare
But we just said 'Have some faith, yo' - 'Don't be a square!'

We rolled out a patch around seven or eight
And you yelled to the devs 'Yo homes did us a favor!'
We looked to our kingdom
It was finally there
To sit on the throne as the game that's most fair...

hmmmm so they have kind of made it just a whole lot easier to stun people. I dont see how thats good, should stick to having to aim the actual stun just like pebbles. Magmus stun, can use when immobilised? what.......

Yeah if you can't aim then gtfo. Magmus surging while immobilised is just ridiculous. He's a bit op as it is.

Well, considering the only ability in the game that immobilises (not stuns) is puppet strings, it just means he can stun while it's on him.
7.9 years ago
nothing wrong with those changes at all, Those stuns in dota were able to be targetted as well.

Quite interesting in how many people will get the steamboots now. They have nerfed it to high heaven with decreasing the movement speed bonus. The other changes are all good though. Probably a good choice to nerf scout just that tiny bit with the high mana usage.

So glad that I can see 10 people in lobby again!

Quote from Carnage:
Yeah if you can't aim then gtfo. Magmus surging while immobilised is just ridiculous. He's a bit op as it is.

I believe this change was to keep it in line with dota, because you could actually target the hero OR target the ground. With behemoths fissure you could actually get out of it because of the cast delay when cast on a hero. Oh and magmus is not OP, and it is not that ridiculous. I think it will surge when in glacius freeze spell because it doesn't silence?
