    Patch 3.4: A Rising Tide - Patch Discussion Podcast Today (4/8) at 2pm EDT





    Podcast with Breaky, WZA, Pandaroohoo, and AceJR

    Tune into http://www.twitch.tv/honcast to catch Breaky and the S2 crew discuss the changes coming up in the latest patch hitting Newerth. Some hot topics of discussion will be:
    • The Newest Hero: Riptide
    • Hero Reworks
    • Jungle Changes
    • Camera Distance Change
    • Other Balance Changes


    Where: Honcast
    When: 2 PM EDT | 8 PM CEST

    AceJR will be taking questions from the twitch chat and bringing them to the table so make sure you come prepared!



    Camera Distance Change

    Coming up in patch 3.4, we’ve allowed the maximum camera zoom distance to be increased from 1,650 units to 1,850 units. (For reference, Devourer’s hook travels 1,100 units) This was done largely as a quality of life change and something that has been suggested many times from the community. We have thoroughly tested this camera distance and do not expect any significant decrease in the amount of action in the game despite this change allowing players a more valid response to off-screen initiation.

    The other concern that this change brought up in testing was system requirements. While we have benchmarked the different camera distance in many scenarios and do not believe it will change much, we are going to be keeping a close eye on it to make sure it does not largely affect any systems.

    More camera angle? I think this will change a lot. Especially in midwars but I know that the balance is not made for midwars. Be prepared devo players. It's gonna get harder. Be prepared portal key playing initiators. U need fog even more now D

    You mean we can actually play Tundra without being 1.5 map distance away from your own hero?

    This camera distance change will have no effect on my 100% hook rate as Devourer

    Camera Distance Change = AWESOME!
    Playing this game is more fun when people are nice to each other.
    Support your team, communicate, and have a good game because of it!

    Can we ask questions like why did you never release custom maps support or league system or spectator interface optimization or riftwars update or ...

    Or will those questions be ignored like in the forum?

    We'll get custom maps right after D2 does it.
