Beta v0.91 (29857)

Patch Notes:

Gameplay

  • Normal (7 waves) and Long (10 waves) game lengths are now unlocked from start rather than being unlocked from Path to Glory. Default game length on install is now 10 waves.
    It’s just more fun this way.
  • Delay between waves increased by 15 seconds. it is now 60 seconds for “normal” waves and 75 seconds for boss waves. Note that this delay is scaled with Leagues.
    More time for shopping!
  • Swift Vengeance achievement requirement lowered from 2500 vengeance kills to 250 vengeance kills.
    You could say we made Vengeance even Swifter..
  • Mad Butcher ability ‘Osmosis Aura’ renamed ‘Life Drain Aura’ and particles color changed to red rather than green and life drain beam particles are now larger. Life Drain Aura now also deals more damage (up from 10% max health damage in all Leagues to 15-25% based on League ability scaling). The Mad Butcher’s speed while in Life Drain Aura now also scales more with League ability scaling, making it actually faster in master League and up, rather than slower (up from 80-100% speed to 80-160%).
    Turns out nobody understood the word “Osmosis”, so we made it look and sound more dangerous. Crowd Control is now more effective in higher leagues.
  • Enemy Champions health scaling per wave decreased from 30% to 25% while health scaling cap wave increased from wave 10 to wave 15.
    Enemy champions could get really grindy to kill at mid-late waves (~8-10), especially if lacking a proper single target damage dealer, while waves 10+ sometimes got very easy to kill fast with high damage oriented teams. This change should mitigate this, while also making it slightly easier to complete 10 waves in all Leagues.
  • Damage over time effects no longer proc Vamp Strike.
    Bleed and Vamp was just too good. Sorry.
  • “Buzzer” Ingholm Power Shot [Q] active charge up reduced from 0.5 seconds to 0.25.
    Because it should stun the enemy, not the player
  • Quick Fix removed.
    Was made redundant a while back, nobody was buying them

  • League selection list now displays the enemy stun resistance increase for the Leagues.
    Stun resistance reduces the duration of stuns and other crowd control effects.
