Hell, its about time.


1.11 Version Changes
  • Maximum hero respawn time has been changed to 2 seconds per hero level from a flat 2 minutes. For example, a level 10 hero now has to wait a maximum of 20 seconds, and a level 30 hero a maximum of 1 minute.
    Players of Rank 4 or above will now see a list of which enemy heroes were picked during the hero spawn time (please note this is after hero selection is finalized)
  • Time of day is now randomized at start of game
  • Camera shake effects applied to several abilities
  • Certain skills now are considered Deathblows. Should the target die within 10 seconds of being hit by a Deathblow, it will demoralize their allied army, cutting their damage in half for 15 seconds.
  • Updated spawn tower and upgrade tooltips to be more detailed
  • '-upgrade' command has been changed to '-upgrades' ('-u' still works the same)
  • Spawn overflow (where units become owned by a player other then Red/Blue) should activate a bit sooner
  • Gloomreap specific spawns now have unit upgrades
  • Anyone who hasn't upgraded their starting scroll after 10 minutes will start having 'noob' appear above their heads in hopes they'll take a hint
  • Cleaned up the Hero AI triggers in hope of improving performance
  • Clan EotA on Lordaeron (West) and Northrend (Europe) are now mentioned along with Azeroth (East)
  • New '-rotate' command added. Works much like -zoom, but lets you view the game from a different angle. Useful if you want to view the battlefield from a different perspective (ie, make kedge be left to right with '-rotate 90' rather then the default up-down)
  • Items dropped in an altar of a computer player, or player who has left the game, should now be automaticly dropped by the altar
  • Temper cooldown reduced to 1 second from 3
Stormwail Peak
  • Transmutation Shrines added
  • Terrain tweaks
  • Moved several towers slightly
  • It should now be more difficult to become stuck behind the left obelisk in middle lane
Kedge's Landing
  • Day/night cycle speed reduced by 20%
  • Added an additional cannon tower to left lane
  • Capturable towers now only hold 2 captains instead of 4
  • Cannon Tower damage increased to 142+2d15 from 125+2d10, profjectile speed increased to 1100 from 900, area effect damage increased
  • Sentry Tower damage increased to 22+1d6 from 19+1d4
  • Fixed several "sinkholes" on the beach which appeared to be shallow enough to walk through but weren't
  • Damage applied to captured towers now deals randomly between 0 and Damage, down from Damage / 2 and Damage. In addition, the maximum damage captains will take per attack is now 500, instead of no limit
  • Cannon Tower sight range increased to match its attack range
  • Fountains removed from beach lane
  • Added a third guard tower to the front most outposts on beach lane
  • Moved the front line beach lane blue outpost around a bit to make more space
  • Moontears are now only worth 1 tower core each, and both teams automaticly recieve 1 tower core at midnight (Note: This is intended as a temporary improvement until a better one is found)
Gloomreap Mire
  • Various terrain tweaks to add space for spawn towers or widen lanes
  • Gloomreap experience rate increased by 50%
  • Wheelbarrow on Gloomreap is no longer selectable
  • There are now crystal nodes called Gloomite scattered across the map. NPC miners will regularly spawn and mine these node, giving cores and increasing your Gloomite %. Upon reaching 40% of gloomite, you can force the assembling of the artifact in the center of the map, which costs 100 crystal and takes a bit of time for it to assemble. Bringing it back to base with a wagon still works the same. The NPC miners can be ordered around just by clicking on them and telling them to go somewhere else.

Sorry for the bad release of 1.11b, it appeared to have a memory leak, and some other bugs so I wanted to fix those quickly. I couldn't find any good reason for there to be a memory leak, so there's a chance there's one in this version as well, which will be found and fixed as soon as possible if so. If you think there's a memory leak in a game you play, please post in the Bug Report fortum with as much information as you can provide (map, heroes used are most important)
