Patch 1.2 Pre-Release Notes

From Facebook :

Quote:
Hello Heroes,

First of all, we’d like to thank you for the feedback you have been giving us since the release of the game. Whatever channel you use (official site, customer support, Facebook, Twitter or other community forums), we are taking it into account.

We know you have been waiting a long time for the patch. This time has been secured for developers to make sure the patch will correct a majority of issues. We did not want to speculate and promise anything uncertain neither. Now we can go ahead and share with you a pre-release notes of corrections that will be included in the patch 1.2.

The release date has not been stated for the moment. Yet, we are aiming at releasing the patch 1.2 before the end of the year. That’s a necessary delay for us to run all necessary technical tests in order to secure the quality of the coming patch.

We can understand that you are getting impatient and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support.

Check out below the pre-release notes for the coming patch. Keep in mind that the list is not definitive yet:

• Major bug fixes (Week of the Plague, Dynasty weapons, unit abilities, scripts, localization)


• Skirmish AI tweaks:


- Tries to defend all owned town (previously the AI focused on its starting town)

- Previously if a hero stronger then the AI's hero threatened a town, the AI hero let that town undefended. Now the AI calculates all of its nearby hero's army and creature growth and defends the town if it finds it possible

- Always defends the last owned town if it can causes reasonable losses to the attacker hero

- Huge speed improvement, AI thinking is approximately 2-3 times faster than in the previous version

- Further improvement of cooperation among primary and secondary heroes

- Improved exploration and target priority

- Pre-calculated army contraction. The AI calculates how many creatures can the target collect (including possible creature growth) before the AI's hero can reach it and calculates if it is worth to chase it.

- Further improvement of Town portal usage

- In case of an FFA the AI tries to attack and capture towns from a weaker player

- FIXED: Sometimes the AI attacked a much stronger hero than itself

- FIXED: Sometimes without reason the AI split its army into 2 and lost against a stronger hero

- FIXED: Sometimes the AI miscalculated the cost of a town portal and spent too much points before trying to use it (resulting an undefended town)

- FIXED: The AI ignored some neutral buildings

- FIXED: Several smaller bug fixes



• Combat AI tweaks:


- General target choice improvement for the units

- Improved ability usage

- Improved racial ability usage

- Improved ability selection and different builds for Magic/Might, Tears/Blood heroes

- Improved creature ability usage



• Gameplay improvements:


- The unit setup after using the Tactics ability is remembered from battle to battle



• Intel support:


- Fog calculation

- Variance shadow mapping vs. hardware shadow mapping



• Balance tweaks:


- Rage II-IV gives +10 Might Attack instead of +15

- Rage points generated by attacks reduced to 16(friendly)/8(enemy) (from 20/10)

- Guardian Angel: Good moral gives 70 racial points (instead of 100)

- Retribution aura cooldown increased to 5 instead of 3

- Haste initiative bonus increased to 12 (from 10)

- Slow initiative reduction increased to 12 (from 10)

- Mass Haste initiative bonus increased to 6 (from 5)

- Mass Slow initiative reduction increased to 6 (from 5)

- Father Sky damage increased to 380 (from 353)

- Idol of Air damage increased to 276/318/366 (from 240/277/319)

- Martyr Might Resistance and Health bonus reduced to +10.8%/12.4%/14.3% (from +21.6%,24.9%,28.6% Might Resistance, +13%,15%,17% Health)

- Hour of Judgement bonus damage increased to 31% (from 21%)

- Hell Hound Might Defense increased to 5 (from 4)

- Cerberus Might Defense increased to 6 (from 4)

- Kirin and Sacred Kirin movement reduced to 6 (from 7)

- Kirin Magic Defense increased to 33 (from 32)

- Sacred Kirin Might Defense reduced to 31 (from 33)

- Sacred Kirin Magic Defense reduced to 33 (from 35)

"Patch 1.2.1
by Might & Magic on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 10:07am

   What the fixed bug is about?

It appeared with the release of 1.2 patch that achievement could be copied from one user to another by using the Compare Profile feature. That means that a further advanced player could regress by comparing his achievement with those of a less advanced player. This only affects achievement and no other part of player profile.

1.2.1 patch fixes this bug and now prevents achievements to be copied.



    When the patch will be live?

Patch will be released on January 5th for all territories.



   Did it affect all the players?

All players using the Compare Profile feature upon 1.2 release could get affected. But if you did not use it, then your achievements are safe. Of course, this issue is not happening anymore with 1.2.1 patch.



    How can I check out if it has affected my account?

Go to the Achievements menu and check if previously unlocked achievement are now locked again. It worked the other way too, if you have compared with a further advanced player.



   After the patch release, will I get back all my lost achievements?

All achievements can be retrieved again but not automatically. Some of them will come back very easily, like XP and Dynasty Level related ones since it will update once you gain level in each area. Unfortunately, other achievements rely on user progress and require to play a bit to get them back. None achievement are lost forever.



   Can I get rewards for the achievements twice?

No, achievements unlocked after being lost through Profile Compare will not award the Dynasty Seals again.

Ubisoft servers downtime

Hello Heroes,

Over the past few months, we’ve heard your feedback and have been investigating the best ways to make improvements in our services’ availability.
As a result, we’re transitioning the hosting of many of our online services from a third-party data center to a new facility, starting February 7 at 8 p.m. EST.

During the transition, some Ubisoft services and online games will not be available – a full list of affected games and services can be found here .
We apologize for the inconvenience. This move ultimately will help us improve the maintenance of our infrastructure and deliver better uptime and greatly improved services for our customers. You can follow migration progress through our Ubisoft twitter account.

Ubi_Irina


This is nnouncement from Ubisoft community manager on official forum. Sure enough Heroes are on the list of the games that will be affected by this. They didn't say anything about how long conflux will be unavailable. If it is like forum migration we will be without any online service for quite some time...

Hint for expansion?

I checked the "Archangel castle" website and found this (translated by google translate):

"For some members who bought UbiShop Heroes VI, Ubisoft has just sent a promotional email allows you to invite friends offering them a good discount on future purchases.

"Besides the gesture commercil, note the bonus offered more subtle than that will benefit close to this offer: A new weapon in Dynasty ... the colors of the Academy!"



Could this mean that the academy faction is up next?

We would like to take this opportunity to confirm that Black Hole is no longer working on Heroes VI, and I am very happy to introduce you to the studio we are now collaborating with: Limbic Entertainment, from Germany. You might have noticed this name from the credits of Heroes VI: Limbic worked with Black Hole during the final stages of Heroes VI’s development. Our commitment to improve and enrich the game remains unaltered, and Limbic has joined us to support the post-launch of Heroes VI. Limbic’s team are experts on the Heroes’ system, so it's only a matter of getting up to speed on a different portion of the project.

Next patches are in work as communicated a few weeks ago. We will let you know soon what we have in store for you. Stick around!

We are currently not only working on the patches, but also on the much-awaited town-screens and new content. We’ll tell you more about these later.
