  • VotA Matchmaking has been updated again and now should reflect latest trends in your playing. This ensures that new players who get better over time will reflect as such and not be mired by their first few games with very low scores.
  • Leaving or Disconnecting from an active VotA will now again result in a Deserter flag which will prevent you from queueing for another battleground for 15 minutes.
  • Later-join players should now be able to join VotA prior to the doors opening. Previously, late joins could only join after the doors open and VotA had actually started.

Does this take effect upon leaving or upon the end of the game?

Can I make a call to tweak the website PvP leaderboards? Because they're still showing people's stats from LAST season as well as this one.

  • Tower protectors are now speedier when protecting nearby friendlies.
  • Killing the Unbound Trio no longer grants the team 3 minutes of Strength 1, but instead... well, you'll see.
These changes are coming tonight and are not currently live.

  • Each team now has Gates guarded by Protectors. Killing the gate's protectors gives you a TNT block that you can place on the gate to destroy it. These objectives are after the towers and before the core.
  • Bits of tuning on respawn times, etc.

  • Each team now only has one gate instead of two, because two was just too bananas.

  • Towers now fully explode, rather than half of the structure exploding.
  • Exploding towers no longer drop blocks
  • You no longer level up when you die, lols
  • Tower Power Sources (Redstone Lamps) now properly turn off when they're overloaded.

Talents
  • NEW: Quick-Casting! By enabling this with /talents (currently only in the PvP server), you can activate talents as soon as you switch to them in your hotbar. For example, if your first slot is your sword, with quick-cast enabled, if you hit 5 to select a talent, it will activate and then immediately return to your last slot (sword). With proper keybinds, you can activate talents without having to switch back to weapons, etc.
Ancient Gulch
  • NEW: Grass! Grass patches have been installed around the map. You are invisible to other enemy players whilst in the grass patches, but can be seen if an enemy enters the grass patch with you. Hiding in grass will in the future obscure things like heart-particles while bandaging and possibly also increase the effectiveness of some talents like Bandage. There's never been a better time to setup ganks! :)

I meant to ask while we were testing this. Does switching to your sword automatically activate reflexes? (When using auto cast) Same for switching to the bow with ExArrow, Hook, or Freyjia's arrow?

It does not, nope, only talents associated with special items. You'll still have to whap with your sword/bow out to activate those talents or switch to their items, which would also work.

  • All arenas now have Inventory Preference Signs behind you when you spawn into an arena. You can arrange your inventory and use the sign to save them by right-clicking
  • Inventory Preferences are now saved by type (BG, Arena, Pot-Arena)
  • Inventory preferences no longer auto-save when a match/bg/game starts (this was probably stupid to do anyway)
