    Patch 4.0.6: reception

    http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...ginary-Friends!

    - When a game is found during a queue, the HoN tray icon flashes and brings the game window to the front.
    * A sound will still play when a game has been found.
    Oooooh boy!!

    Bloodhunter Rework
    I fear Q will make BH a better counter to spellspamming heroes than magebane. Other than that, the R change will provide some really nice niche counters.
    Testing will tell how efficient the extra damage on E is.

    Combo Avatars
    The idea behind it sounds pretty cool, I hope the avatars are on par.

    Miku Announcer
    My inner weeaboo doesn't even need to hear it to need a change of pants. A 2 weeks delay only exacerbate that.

    Bugfixes
    Some solid changes, especially

    :adre: Adrenaline
    - Fracture illusions are now pitch-black to further distinguish them from the real Adrenaline hero.

    which will hopefully smoothen gameplay against adre.


    Overall a pretty solid minor patch in my opinion, which does a good job of sprinkling actual changes and fixes over its usual load of avatars.

    Great patch!

    Thankfully we got that fix to where you join a game and have to reconnect cause nothing responding - woohoo!
    Also, a fix to Kongor's boulder dust showing through fog - which is great too!

    And that BH rework looks really interesting.

    Really nice patch all in all!

    Unfortunately, we have to delay the Miku announcer by at least another patch. We apologize for the inconvenience, as it was a last minute change communicated to us.

    As Frostburn tend to sneak in the art / UI / UX improvements into Mid Wars the patch before, just wanna say the reworked scoreboard was in Mid Wars last patch. Really nice job.

    - Kongor's respawn timer visuals will now be properly displayed to all players.

    That is a big one for me. I haven't been able to see the Kongor timer correctly for many weeks.


    Hemorrhage changes concern me... If Homecoming Stone and Post Haste teleports don't trigger it (which I completely agree with), then I don't think any teleports (Ophelia's, Nymph's, Silhoutte's) should either. I'm not a fan of it working on individual blinks either - but I can see why that might make sense for balance reasons.

    I was about to write the same thing: So every time Magebane teleports over max distance, he receives flat 900 magic damage?

    And what does it mean when you look at Andro? Will her swap be a 900 magic damage burst when the target is under the effects of Blood Hunters ultimate?

    In Ophelia's, Nymph's and Silhouette's case, it would be a guaranteed kill, if the enemy tries to port into the base with that...

    That's how dota2 handles it, and it creates a niche for bloodseeker as a blink-counter.

    Tho I heard bloodseeker got reworked a while back, maybe that got changed.

    (also gives a lot of footage for Dota2 Funny Plays, which is always good)

    Exactly, BH is now a better niche hero against certain picks/spells. Makes the game so much more interesting

    If blackbird sees this, he might be able to confirm/deny, but I think bloodseeker@pushstick was indeed a thing. Funny damage, and cancels tps, his direct counter.

    I just want to express my gratitude for the new Nymphora Avatar, its been some time since she had a skin.

    Also beautiful work on the Jeraziah spell icon change for Iron Jera skin it looks incredible. I really wish more avatars could have a icon make over like that.

    I didn't read anything about that? Well, if that is true, I might even have a reason to get the Iron Jeraziah.
