Version Information
Release Date:
  • Balance Changes



Gold & Experience[edit]

  • AoE Bonus Gold component based on Team Net Worth difference reduced by 25%
  • AoE Bonus XP component based on Team XP difference reduced by 40%
  • Melee lane creep bounty reduced from 43 to 40 (-7%)
  • Range lane creep bounty reduced from 48 to 45 (-6.25%)
  • Hero kills (the non-net worth portions) are worth 10% more
  • Reduced the direct hero last hit bounty by 100 and redistributed that gold into AoE gold (in ratio of 100/75/40/25/20 for 1/2/3/4/5 heroes)
    • If you are the only person contributing to a kill, you still get the same gold overall
  • AoE Bonus Gold is now distributed based on the relative net worth amongst the heroes involved in killing the hero by +/- 25%
    • Example: If 3 heroes kill an enemy hero, and the extra AoE bounty would normally be 200 gold for each player, it is instead 200+25% for the poorest hero, 200 for the middle, and 200-25% for the richest
  • The amount of AoE Bonus Gold given is now increased/decreased by up to 20% based on the dying hero’s relative rank in net worth amongst all the enemies on that team.
    • Example: If the total AoE gold would normally have been 600, if the hero dying is the lowest in net worth, the bounty is reduced by 20% giving only 480. If the dying hero is the highest, it is increased by 20%, giving 720
  • Instead of Buyback temporarily preventing unreliable gold gain, it now reduces all gold gained (including hero and aoe gold) by 60%
    • This means that if you buyback when the enemy is pushing and you get a few kills, the amount of gold you get for that, including the networth difference bonus, is reduced by 60%
  • Melee Barracks team bounty increased from 175 to 275
  • Ranged Barracks team bounty increased from 100 to 225
  • Tier 2 and 3 towers armor reduced from 25 to 22

Lane Creeps[edit]

  • Extra melee creeps additions spawn time changed from 17:30/34:00/50:30 to 15:00/30:00/45:00
    • This means that you will get an extra melee creep at 15 minutes instead of at 17:30
  • Extra range/siege creep additions spawntime from 45:30 to 45:00
  • Creeps now meet slightly closer to the Dire safelane

    • Mud Golems movement speed increased from 270 to 310
    • Mud Golems (and also Shard Golems) have a new active ability: Hurl Boulder (0.6 second stun, 125 damage, 30 cooldown, 800 range) They do not automatically cast this
