Warcraft 3 Changelog

Recommended Posts

Fixed a bug where molotovs could bash on the following races:

  • Emperor Trump (reflecting bash from a molotov when the molotov shouldn't bash)
  • Anti Mage (when attacking and mini-bashing a person with their knife out)
  • Damoi Tui (bash aura)
  • Dragon Knight (bash nearby enemy when hit)
  • Chronos
  • New Game +
  • Lina
  • Banshee
 

Dreadknight now prints a hint when acute senses entangles a knife race.

 

Ravinick now properly displays how much damage it deals with it's effects in hints and text.

 

Thardy lifesteal no longer persists through death.

 

Not live yet but should be live at some point in the next day:

 

Fixed a bug where in some rare cases skills that deal magic damage (not "additional damage" or "critical damage") could get be critical hits. Thanks to [mention=23021]Hamburglar[/mention] for providing some "/debug" notes which were helpful 

This may or may not negatively affect the following races. If you think one of them was "balanced" and this bug has significantly altered it's damage output negatively, please let me know and I will review it.

  • Blademaster
  • Dante
  • Khadgar
  • Soul Stealer
This also fixed a bug where bonus damage to undead (Priest, Yrel) could count on magic damage skills. This includes Priest's Judgment, Yrel's Holy Shield, and Yrel's Judgment.

 

Human invis was reduced from 65% to 50% to agree to the skillsinfo and what it has always been. Not sure why/when it was increased ...

Fixed a bug where Air Elemental smokes didn’t explode when they collide with players.

Made it so when Smoke throws smoke grenades near the bomb, the radius in which they no longer do damage to enemies is much larger,

Haven't posted the last couple weeks, but here's what's been changed:

  • Recoded the way auras work since it's always had issues (especially if we reload the race without restarting the server). Currently this isn't live on any races except a developer only race. I will slowly roll it out to other races as I confirm it has no major bugs.
  • 2 Races are currently developer only: Tracer and Dark Templar. Still working out bugs and QoL changes with Tracer, still working on balance with Dark Templar
  • Fixed bugs w/ Banshee slow aura not working consistently, this is what inspired the aura change that isn't live yet
  • Fixed bug with Bulbasaur's Vine Whip hitting the wrong players
  • Infected is now always stronger if the date is October 31, or if the halloween event cvar is set
  • Remilia now takes 100% bonus damage from knives, down from 250% - I know I made changes to the Remilia damage in the past that affected this damage calculation, and and before this new change, it appeared that nearly all knife attacks would deal 120-200 bonus damage.
  • Witch King is back as ROTD only, but has suffered some nerfs
    • 25% dmg reduc (down from 30%)
    • 20% chance to disarm (down from 25%)
    • 27% evade (down from 30%)

 

Hope you all enjoy the Halloween event! Don't forget to type "goldtop10" to see the top players, or "gold" to see how you compare!

Bonus xp is now active! Don't forget to wear your [JoinSG] clan tags to get it!

 

I've also been busy this week and will be for a few more days. I intend to start moving races out of tester to live soon, so if you have any changes you suggest - testers, please let me know.

Bug Fixes:

  • Death Bringer: fixed heal blocking potentially carrying over through death (I think... :))
  • Elemental: ult now checks for ult immunity
  • Goliath: big swings hasn't been working for... a while apparently... it now works again (remember, left click only)
  • Pudge: fixed a bug where Pudge's hook was attempting to target allies but was unable to do so. Basically, if an ally was close to an enemy, your hook couldn't hit the enemy because it was trying to hit the ally.
  • Ruthless Mercenary: grenades can now be blocked by goblin alchemist
  • Yrel: fixed description to show the proper speed buff

Physical damage we deal is no longer affected by armor. Previously, if we dealt physical damage and the victim had armor, the damage was halved.

This is to make it more consistent, easier to balance (40 dmg always equals 40 dmg), and make damage outputs consistent where they previously were not (see: ravinick).

 

Races that are affected by this change:

  • Air Elemental (reduced back stab damage taken was phsyical)
  • Exile (one of the items he finds)
  • Gargoyle (self-damage on failed goomba)
  • Jukebox Hero (fireworks damage)
  • Keeper of the Grove (thorns)
  • Pudge (hook)
  • Ravinick (lightning shield)
  • Ruthless Mercenary (grenades)
  • Second Wave (seeker mine)

Although this is inevitably a buff to many of these races, I tend to take a stand-off approach when I make a big change like this and see how it plays out. I do not intend to nerf any of the above races, however I will consider doing so if it seems necessary over the next weeks.

Fixed bugs:

  • Mole now checks if you collide with any objects before choosing a spawn point. This should prevent getting stuck in players (rare) or spawning in the middle of the map (why is a spawn there ????)
  • Corpse Bomber should have no more issues with certain primaries (namely M4A1S) not working with ult
  • Cursed Pharaoh "Curse of the Pharaoh" skill no longer procs itself
  • Igna Phoenix no longer slows herself (woops)
  • Ruthless Mercenary grenades now don't hit Goblin Alchemist (2nd times a charm?)
  • Xian ult no longer checks if ability is in cooldown

 

Nerf:

  • Along w/ the phys dmg changes previously, Ruthless Mercenary nades dealt a lot more damage than intended. Lowered "max" dmg of subsequent nades from 150 to 115.

Misc:

  • After I get a manual restart in, all CTs and Ts will spawn as the same models (instead of being randomly selected based on map). This prevents some models spawning with 100% invis heads if a player has invisibility. These are the 2 models we used to use ~2+ years ago, for you old-timers.

Lol:

  • Added crypto addresses to my signature in case you are bored

Bug Fixes:

  • Default cannot revive while carrying hostage

Thanks - keep reporting them ASAP!

Bug Fixes:

  • Another attempt to fix hiding on radar issues?
  • Bounty Hunter cannot put a bounty on ult immune players
  • Elemental's fiery gaze now properly starts/ends which fixes the "turn off/on" problem every round
  • Fixed a bug with Hand of God's evasion calculations
    • Because of the way it was done, it was basically double-checking evade in order to evade a hit
      • e.g. (highest evade chance at max) 90% knife evade was a 90% * 90% = 81% chance
      • e.g. (lowest evade chance at max) 75% shotgun evade was 56.25%
    • As you can see, even though this is a correction it is a nice, needed buff to Hand of God
  • Molecule Damage Reflect on knife attackers is now True Damage. This is to retain the glory that is molecule against pudge, rocky, etc.
  • Paradox can no longer use his ability (teleport/blink) when silenced
  • Tracer can no longer blink or recall if she is Hexed

  • Battlefield Pro now has 30% bonus speed (up from 20%)

  • Master of GO ultimate now has a 25% chance of affirmative
    • When affirmative, Master of GO gains 10% speed
  • Master of Three now deals 3 bonus damage per hit (previously it said this was the case, but it was not the case)

Fixed invis shadow hunter wards (most of the time, it'll prob still break rarely like entangle etc have been...)

Added more thorough crash information so I can figure out problems (e.g. what causes random crashes to desktop for groups)

Reduced screen flash on Lady Hederine slightly

Reduced succubus ward radius from 250 to 200 after I realized how big it was during testing

Removed overlay counters from all races. They have been replaced with something called HUD text. This not only should reduce lag when playing these races, but also in some cases they may provide more info than before. If you have any idea of other ways to use the HUD text (it is fairly versatile) please let me know. (other information, using different color, etc)

 

If the text is overly large (typically only a problem on resolutions >1080p) I suggest scaling your HUD down with the hud_scaling command. I believe it should reduce the size of the text with your HUD.

 

After the next restart (should happen automatically at night) the overlay images will no longer be downloaded when players join the server, reducing the download time.

In order to try and fix a crash problem, we have removed grace time on join and in lieu added a warmup period of 15 seconds. This means if you join a team any time after a round has started, you must wait till the next round to play. The warmup period will allow people to load new maps. Please report any issues to myself or another staff in discord ASAP.

 

If you experience crashes during the warmup, let me know immediately.

Any form of suicide (including changing teams) the first round is now logged. If you attempt to progress the round number in order to get additional cash, spawn with guns faster, etc. you will be banned for abusing the system.

 

Dark Templar now consistently blocks only 1 bullet with his shield (instead of sometimes blocking 2, dependent on how fast your gun fired) - however he has gained 15% passive speed.

 

Fixed some Clutch Chat bugs, also I log a lot more stuff that will benefit us in debugging crash problems.

 

Adjusted Paradox skill descriptions to be more correct.

Just like in AMERICA we now remove 2 regulations for every 1 we add, we must also buff 2 races for every 1 we nerf

 

  • Igna now has a 35% chance to cast firestorm (down from 40%)
  • Lady Hederine whip now slows by up to 16% (down from 26%), the color flash intensity has been slightly reduced, and the duration has been halved to help reduce "overlapping" flashes from building up

IN EXCHANGE FOR THESE NERFS

  • Displacer Beast now has a 16 second cooldown on ability and ultimate (down from 20 seconds)
  • Golden-tail has 22% evade (up from 20%)
  • Krillin now runs at 84% speed (up from 80% speed)
  • Wizard of the Everlasting now runs at 85% speed (up from 80% speed)

Some measures were put in place to reduce or eliminate start-of-map abuse (involving suiciding at the start of the game to skip round 1). Let me know if you see any one doing this.

Race changes

  • Voodoo Witch Doctor can no longer buy mask - I believe this was simply an oversight in the past
    • In exchange, it now slows up to 30% (up from 20% slow)
  • BF Pro now takes 2 seconds to activate his C4, down from 3 seconds.
  • Terran Ghost now uses 5 energy per second for invisibility (down from 10 per second) and uses 25 energy for his ult (down from 30 energy)

Bug Fixes

  • Altana, Night Elf, and Dread Knight will now more properly not entangle players with certain buffs that should stop it (e.g. Magatha's totem that should block it)
  • Bounty Hunter no longer has permanent 100% crit sometimes
  • Bunnicula no longer triggers effects by attacking teammates
  • Dark Templar no longer loses his shield to magic damage or fall damage
  • High Priestess dies on round end if in spirit form to prevent problems
  • Jarmen Kell properly resets FOV when you die zoomed in - this is not an issue on Paradox as it was already accounted for
  • Keeper of the Grove should no longer trigger thorns if you die as another race but changed to Keeper
  • Magatha's Water Totem now ignores players that are at or above their max HP - it also can theoretically heal a player over 500 (basically Infected and Pudge) if they are near the totem. It completely ignores DT and Shadow Lurker in all cases.
  • Magatha's Grounding Totem now properly gives ult immunity and targeting immunity to nearby allies instead of allies that are far away
  • Paradox now removes all movement impairing effects when he uses blink
  • Shopkeepers ring of armor no longer activates if you spawn with higher armor than it gives you
  • Stalker damage print on critical hit now prints properly
  • Reaper now gains 2 "heat" per shot and caps at 100 "heat" - just so the meter seems consistent with Marine while having the same effect - this is no change in actual function
