Patch 1.12

4 posts in this topic

Kay, now that we've had our share of the fun of 3-3-3-3 dominating the leaderboards, it's time to fix that and actually go back to evaluating balance. No new features this patch; however, two serious abuses are fixed along with a nukebat. Aka, game is no longer as abusable.

  • 12th Element Pick Removed
    • The combination of Tier 3 Triple Element Towers + 12th Element Pick is impossible to balance, so between the two, we're keeping Tier 3 Triples as it allows far more viable builds than 12th Element Pick, plus its existence feels a lot more natural. I'm pretty sure everyone that didn't play for leaderboards didn't even know 12th Element Pick existed.
  • Slow Abuse Bug Fixed
    • Previously, if you put a Level 3 Slowing Tower up, and then just a little bit later, had a Level 1 Slowing Tower of the same type, it would bug the creeps into being permanently stuck at 70% Slowed.
    • This has been fixed. In fact, I think slows respond a little better overall now.
  • Trickery Upgrade Abuse Fixed
    • Apparently, if you were fast enough, you could upgrade a tower, use Trickery to clone it while it's upgrading, and then cancel the upgrade, effectively giving you a free clone of the upgraded tower.
    • This is no longer doable, because Trickery can no longer clone a tower while it's upgrading.
  • Minor Fixes
    • Flipped Poison Tiers 2 & 3 Cosmetics.
    • Increased the Attack Point Animation for Incantation from 0 to 0.1, so Tier 3 (Medusa) no longer looks retarded when firing, and in general looks better at all tiers.

 

Patch is live!

But have the top scores of the people who got incredible scores as a result of this bug been removed?

No. But when a new version comes out we reset the leaderboard. So it's a moot point.
