Patch 1.5

Recommended Posts

Incoming mega patch! Patch 1.5 is the largest patch to date, featuring the return of Elemental Cannon & Arrow Towers, a Custom Game Pass, and a ton of balance changes. Way more builds, element orders, and play styles work better than before, and you no longer get screwed over half the time on Random. In fact, it's arguably easier to play Random than it is All Pick. Check out the patch notes below!

    • We now have a Custom Game Pass (click here). You can purchase it in Dota 2 for $1, which supports our development of the game and unlocks the following goodies for you:
      • Access to Player Profiles, Friend Leaderboards, Lifetime Stat, Match History, & Ranking Achievements
      • 6 Element-themed Custom Builder Models

Expect the game to feel different than before. Tech Rushing is still doable and very much viable, but a whole lot harder to pull off (in other words, it's not the only way to "properly play" anymore).

Ah. Look at the buffs.

 

Just to let you know, I've been playing Poison, and I managed to clear 48 frogs with Poison. This buffs might make it more. I'm testing as I type.

I'll comment more (most likely PM) about other stuff, but as of 2 hours ago, Nature + Water dominates the meta right now.

Well, due to the custom game passes, we actually had to take down our own donation system, that'd be why.

 

Annnd we'll try to get the on-site tower stats up-to-date later today, I believe they're still on 1.4

Hello, I've really enjoyed this game and the patch looks exciting. However, is there a possibility to remove or move the pass icon on the bottom left, as it's really big and flashy and most takes up much of the screen specially the road. I find it a lil hard to micro towers and attack minions when that ad on my face.

Glad you're liking it! I suppose what we could do is make it similar to Sandbox's Menu, where you can have it rolled into the side of your screen.

The arrow in the bottom left does that.

1. are flamethrower towers any good against frogs?

2. are moss towers for high hp creeps or low hp creeps?

1. Flamethrowers seems fairly weak to me atm but in theory they are decent against frog waves if you have slow towers to cluster the creeps together.
 

2. Moss towers are for high hp creeps and disease for low hp creeps.
