v2.18

General

- Updated Battle.net Map 'Guide' Tab. (Special thanks to Fell & Ridz for submitting screenshots!)

- New Loading Screen.

- Fix: Addressed bug that caused certain models (Protoss cursor, Craters) to stay for the rest of the match rather than deleting after they play out their animation.

- The 'True Cloak' mechanic now suppresses Radar vision to set it further apart from the standard 'Cloak' mechanic.

- Fix: Addressed bug that caused Heroes to receive disproportionate XP bounties from hero kills. Now heroes receive the intended XP from killing other heroes.

- Added "-Alt2" command; Some heroes have gained access to a second alternative skin that can be toggled on/off by typing "-alt2" if your rating is 1300 or more. Check below to see who are the lucky heroes this time!
