The Latest Dota Underlords Update for 8/8/2019 Is Now Live

Whilst not named or as big as previous updates, This update focuses more on tweaks and the occasional drive-by nerfing. Read on for the full breakdown.

 

General:
  • We crashed some crashing code into a crash compactor.
  • Fixed some issues with animations and unit facing.
  • More FX have been optimized.
  • Units affected by Medusa’s Stone Gaze now visually freeze and look stony.
  • Changed Global Items achievement to require 2, not 4, global items.
  • Bot games now start paused when they are resumed.
  • Bot personalities tweaked for the current state of the game.
  • The Combat Stats Kills panel now treats kills like damage (summons’ kills accrue to the summoner).

 

UI:
  • Fixed an issue where the wrong alliance icons could be shown when a unit is placed on the board and an alliance completes.
  • Fixed an issue where the +Free Reroll line could be shown in error on the round rewards popup.
  • Fixed some issues with Proto Pass progress display.
  • Fixed reoccurring rank-up popups.
  • Can now click on heroes on the scoreboard and all heroes of that type will be highlighted.
  • In-game alliance tooltip/popup now shows icons for all heroes in that alliance.
  • Fixed sometimes not notifying other players when a combat ended and an Aegis was used.
  • Highlight your own row on the scoreboard.
  • General UI updates and polish.

 

Gameplay:
  • Fixed an issue with ability targeting and summons where those abilities which sort units by, e.g., health were not properly excluding summons.
  • Fixed unexploded Techies Bombs doing player damage on round over.

Alliance changes:

  • Elusive: Level 3 Alliance (9 heroes) – changed from “All units gain +75% evasion” to “All heroes gain +75% evasion”.
  • Demon Hunter Level 2 Alliance (2 heroes) – changed from “Invalidate your opponent’s Demon Alliance bonus. All Demon units gain +50% Pure Damage. All Demon Hunters gain +50% Pure Damage.” to “Invalidate your opponent’s Demon Alliance bonus. All Demon and Demon Hunter units gain +50% Pure Damage.” This means that Terroblade no longer gets the double bonus.
  • Hunter Level 1 (3 heroes): Extra Attacks chance raised from 20% to 25%. Level 2 (6 heroes): Extra Attacks chance raised from 35% to 40%.

Hero Changes:

Doom:

  • Doom’s Doom ability now uniformly disables passive bonuses, including alliance passive bonuses.
  • Ability description changed to reflect this.

Lycan:

  • When Lycan transforms and he gains 30% max health, he heals by the full 30% each time, rather than this being based on his current health at the time of transforming.

Juggernaut:

  • If Juggernaut is eligible to cast Blade Fury (has enough mana, not on cooldown) and he is about to take magic damage, he immediately casts Blade Fury and takes no magic damage.

Item Changes:

Helm of the Undying:

  • Undying units, if they are in the undying state, will never deal damage to the opponent, but will still count when determining which side won a round.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
