Changelog v2.38-2.44

Recommended Posts




- Added Rob.Boswell

- Added 'Day and Night Cycle'


The 'Day and Night Cycle' (or Time of Day) is a new and developing gameplay element with many unique interactions planned out for the future.

The first 'day' in AoS starts at the 3:00 Minute Mark (Game Time), and each cycle from then on lasts 10 minutes - Divided equally between daytime and nighttime (5 Minutes Game Time each). The arrival of each day and each night is signaled by a global audio cue (Birds Chirping/Rooster's Crow or Wolf Howl respectively), and a change in the map's lighting.

The (re)introduction of this mechanic to AoS imposes a revision to the way the Sight stat is expressed in the following ways for now:

- All Heroes had their base Sight radius during the Day increased to 16u from 12u. At Night, their Sight is reduced by 8u radius. Exceptions to this rule are noted in the Heroes section below.

- All Heroic Creeps had their Sight reduced to 8.5u radius during Day and Night. Exceptions to this rule are: Marine King' Bribed Units, Queen' Tyrant Ultralisk, Nemesis' Oblivion Construct, Tass Astral Projection, and Jim Raynor's Raiders.

- All Lane Towers had their Sight radius during the Day increased to 16u from 10.5u. At Night, their Sight is reduced by 7u. (Note: Tower Truesight unaffected by nighttime.)

- All Lane Creeps had their Sight reduced to 8.5u radius during Day and Night from 10u.

- Heroes are less likely to draw aggro from nearby Neutral Creeps at Night (except from the Neutral Creep(s) they are currently attacking).
