Patch Notes

Update 1 & 2

  • Matchmaking enabled.
  • Enabled new shop.
  • Removed Tiny, Enigma, and Viper from "New heroes" list, so they won't be the only ones chosen with Random Hero.
  • Added moonlight shadow cast effects to Mirana and her teammates.
  • Added the ability to attack and destroy runes and world items.
  • Runes and physical items now highlight invalid with the standard cursor if the controlled unit does not have movement capability.
  • Added in new announcer lines for killing Roshan, Towers and Barracks.
  • Adding in a delay on building attack messages to be less spammy.
  • Only one bloodstone (the first one in your inventory) gets a charge when there is a nearby hero death.
