Geneva

R - Cooldown set to 60 at all levels from 80/70/60. Energy Cost changed to 100/50/0 from 75.

Everything looks fine but Geneva

 

LOl you just get battery at 5 lvl and thee is no use of even getting ult more than lvl 1 now

Whats the use of ultlvl 2 and lvl 3 ?

Well R had shap scaling to begin with (see the former cooldown reduction). This change is a slight improvement for Geneva later in the game. She can also use R more frequently earlier. Probably needs the cooldown rescaled better to make leveling it up reasonable, like 80/60/40 or 90/60/30. An xp point shouldn't be pointless.

Idk but when mained hero s got lvl 2 ult at lvl 14, guess she really needs at least bit bonus to cd to ult (not like 10 sec, 20-30 is fine)

Was everyone's speed increased due to map size increase?

can you also fix flares not being stackable when occupying final item slot?

 

Were not talent skills given nonequivalent cooldowns as a matter of balance? They are not all equal.

 

what reward does new jungle boss give that aeon/levi do not provide to the game?

 

I have a very strong computer (1080ti/7700k) but I am worried about performance on other people's computers as many players struggle to run this game. Is performance equal? I am talking about not only load times and fps but CPU bottlenecking come late game (40+ min). Those waterfalls and sanctums providing large aura regen...

1- Yes. Trying to maintain and/or improve the pace of the game and the frequency of action. The speed of heroic units was adjusted to (hopefully) be in proportion to the new size.

 

2- No I can't (as in unable to), but our fearless leader might be able to.

 

3- They're not, but haste certainly doesn't deserve to have less of a cooldown than the other two. In fact, I'd say Haste is the strongest of the 3 and its the other two that need their cooldowns buffed. But this change in particular is meant as a starting point by scaling all of them back to a baseline and then see where we go.

 

4- Xanthos provides 100 minerals and 200 XP (the equivalent of the Fireworm boss) but only to the last hitter and does it at the frequency of a regular jungle camp. It's a glorified Thor rather than a 'boss' - a sub-boss if you will. It's there for junglers rather than the team, a role we hope to flesh out more. The concept of sub-bosses are new to AoS but we do want to introduce more minor objectives I guess.

 

5- If your computer ran AoS it should run this just as well. The size of the map is only a notch bigger, and the total number of objects on the map is less than current AoS. There are overall less things on your screen at any given time and that matters most I'd think. Based on all the games we played so far, I'd say performance has been equal.

 

6- Only Sanctums are intended to provide small AoE regen to allied heroes immediately next to them (waterfalls?). The idea is that they provide something like an AoE Recover Talent for Allies, regen over several seconds with a 6-7 minute cooldown. It's meant to help facilitate the jungle role and keep the action going instead of having people go back to base. It also provides an element of map control with teleports. The idea hasn't been fully developed yet in the beta, but if it doesn't work out as good as we hope, fine. But if it does, then great.

poor pyro and ere........that damage nerf and heal nerf to pryo, and what is the purpose of the ere nerf? IMO he was one of the more balanced hero in the game...

Ere's isn't meant to be a nerf, but to give him a more defined niche, and also to improve his role as a support hero rather than building full INT to do damage. There are a lot of burst abilities that scale with INT, some like Raynor's R which scales with missing health and INT. So the change to Ere's R gives him his own unique flavor among the roster. It isn't nerf as I said, it is still absolutely destroying heroes during our playtests, it's just more situational now. It's a repurposing. The numbers can be adjusted if it proves too weak or too strong.

 

Pyro is actually still very strong and the utility he can provide with deathmask and his heroic for his team is amazing. He's like a healer's best friend and worst enemy now.

cau+ mask+ box +taiser + aoestun = -enemies= -parallaxes I like a lot an impact that items do but

 

what about stats?

only int have scales (there are 4-5 str scale skills (dehacka,micro,viron))

 

would be awesome to see some reworked abilities so handofmengsk,lionsbane,contshard,eternity will become much better

just add some scales to most skills like

toxi E slow scale str

rog max ult stack amount scale agi and etc.

 

 

more scales

more different build

more 'wtf happens with this game'

 

 

 

and pls ss ult focus hroes

 

and pls pls dehacka more int lvl bonus

I've activated the Protoss/Zerg Sanctums with a variation of their intended function (Serenity Aura). I also activated the Siege Master Aura for towers and the Nexus/Hivemind.

I have found a bug with khyrak, his passive (healing after kill) works wrong : he should heal 50% enemies max hp but he does much less

I went over the triggers, everything looks in place. He only heals 50% Max HP if he killed a heroic unit. Otherwise it's 25% at level 4. Are you sure it was an enemy hero?

Updated beta with a major revision (see: patch notes got fat). Lots of fixes including one for the dreadful Vergil E bug! I've also reduced the number of objects in the map by 70-something and will continue doing to help lower end machines as much as possible.

Updating beta test map and will gradually add the new main shop items to it to see how they fare. The main post was updated with the 2.2 changelog to give you an idea of what's happening and a preview of what's to come this patch.

Updated AoS 7 Beta Map and changelog. Items in red will gradually be activated in the game over the testing period before we go live. This goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, changes listed are not final. Once again, will appreciate your support during the coming playtests.

Auto surrender: nice for pubs

Good terrain change for jungle

Blue gene is pretty bad item for its cost

Still not sure of syrus codex place in game. Seems useless and only brings incentive to be targeted while being too costly for its benefit for early game. Given the addition of space gem it is now easier than ever to increase time near exp sources, so everyone is leveling more quickly.

Tetragrammaton is a tank item that is best used by late game carries and will make them unstoppable.

Whale breast is most efficient item in the game now, you might as well have given every hero +10 weapon damage for first 20 minutes of game

Interesting tychus rework thanks

Why doesn't avenger's hp also include himself as a stack source?

Don't hate on Blue Gene til you try it. It's a high risk/high reward snowball item. All the side shop 'Relic' items we plan on introducing will carry with them this "theme" if you will. Not every item we are introducing is intended for all heroes and all situations.

As I said, Syrus Codex is one of those situational items that's not meant for every hero at every time. But you take the veteran talent, Hunter's Knife, and Syrus Codex for example and go kill Brax, Aeon, or Worm or do one full sweep of the jungle you will begin to understand the value and potential of the consumable.

Tetra isn't what I would call a tank item, since stat-wise it can benefit all heroes. The active itself however is meant to benefit autoattackers who are not reliant on active abilities to deal their damage. It hasn't been balanced yet but note that your opponent can bait you into activating it at the wrong time, leaving you helpless for the rest of the fight.

Yes, Whale Breast (much like the item's namesake) is extremely efficient. The change is meant to help junglers deal with the stronger jungle creeps. You can only carry 1 per inventory slot which means you are sacrificing the potential to carry other items at the same time. The numbers are not final.

Avenger is a selfless creature that cares for his friends' wellbeing more than himself.

Done.

The "names" are a small gesture to honor all the devs who over the years helped make AoS what it is today. :)
