General Changes[edit]

  • Added two new Scourge heroes
  • Added new functionality to replay files for leagues to more easily calculate and process game data
  • Added -showdeny/-hidedeny
  • Added new host commands "-weather snow", "-weather rain" and for everyone "-weather off" (if it is turned off, it can't be turned on again, to prevent spam and abuses)
  • -ma now shows hero level next to the name
  • Improved first middle Scourge tower area
  • Added a new endgame scoreboard to replace the inaccurate one that Warcraft 3 generates
  • Improved death text presentation
  • Added floating text to show you all the gold you get (including bonuses, not just the 100) from hero kills as well as tower kills. Please note that there has been no change to the gold you get, it is just being displayed as an added effect now.
  • Improved some ward vision areas for the Scourge team (thx Wedge[p])
  • Sentinel and Scourge hero kills now share the gold with the team instead of it being lost
  • Rewrote a lot of internal coding to allow for cleaner AI version implementation (in near future, the bot capability will be part of the regular map, useable in every release)
  • Added Snowman after Roshan (just a temp for the season)
  • Added hero icons to the multiboard
  • Added an observer scoreboard display for better information when watching live games
  • Improved AI on the siege units. They spawn every 7 waves now instead of every 6
  • Upgraded ghouls now have a bigger model like the treants do when upgraded
  • Chaos damage now does 40% damage to fortified (down from 50%)
  • You now have more time to repick (120 from 60)
  • Added -disablehelp support for sprout
  • Gnoll Assassin creep is slightly stronger and give a little more bounty as well
  • Lowered Neutral Taskmaster's HP/armor/movement speed
  • Implemented hero descriptions by Deathknight6034 (Bloodseeker, Ryali, DK), Aconite_Vyper (Sniper), KingReaper (Phantom Lancer), Volcove (Keeper of the Light), Bowstaff (Omniknight), SteveGarbage (Furion), theAlice (Panda, Vol'Jin), prawnstar (Antimage), skipperme (Chen), redrooster (Fletcher), Tikiboi (Raigor).
