Patch 1.4 release notes 16.05.2012

Dear Heroes,

the patch 1.4 is now live. To download it you need to connect to the game, download of the patch will start automatically.
For Steam players: the patch will be live shortly, we will keep you updated.

The patch 1.4 release notes are as follows:

- Added the Custom Map Exchange feature, allowing players to download missing maps in the lobby, from the host.
- Added the Archipelago map, previously available only during the Christmas event, in Skirmish mode (solo and multiplayer)
- Added features in the map editor:

o Help Files: Added tutorials in the Map Editor
o Initial Map Setup: Set a trigger to set up the initial structure allowing to save a map right after creation
o Unified Object Behavior: Implemented unified behavior for all affected objects (e.g.: object selection, scaling, rotation handling, etc.)
o Mini map: Removed the non-functional mini map from the Map Editor


Here is a first insight of the changes we are going to apply for the patch 1.5, focusing on the Game Balancing:

o Reduction of power for Necropolis units
o Increase of power for Inferno units

Tweaking of creature growth for some core and elite creatures

- Increase of power for Luck in general, by increasing creature luck values, especially for Inferno
- Increasing interest of abilities that affect might offense, might defense, luck and leadership

- Decrease of power of HEALING spells and abilities (HEAL, MASS HEAL,REGENERATION, MASS REGENERATION, RESURRECTION,LIFE DRAIN, MASS LIFE DRAIN)
- Refitting of healing powers of certain creatures (Haven SISTERS mainly)

- Increase of power for most DIRECT DAMAGE SPELLS, especially ZONE DAMAGE SPELLS (like FIREBALL)

- Increase of power for MASS STAND YOUR GROUND ability
- Increase of damage boost for MASS HEROISM ability
- Increase of power for ARCHERY I ability

Not much to go with yet but things are getting on track.. Most of the balance changes we had been ranting for a quite a while now Some of those must seem vague, I'll see if I can give you some more details on the balance changes.

Best news for a LONG time. I can't wait to return playing Inferno and Necropolis too. But also to check how healing factions fare after the nerf.

Edit: Blargh, it was for 1.5.

hmph so after 4 patches, they finaly decided to fix game balance in 1.5. Tha's fine and all, and it will probably bring me back to the game, but i still don't understand why they didn't do these fixes idk ... like in 1.2 or in 1.3 atleast ? To me these are patch 1 problems.
Still ... nice to see they're back on the track

Well, if game was unplayable due to bugs, who cares about balance?

What's the ETA for 1.5 ... christmas?

That's because Blackhole is out and Limbic is on it now.....

Comments:

Mini map: Removed the non-functional mini map from the Map Editor hmmm, outside of the map editor.....I wish the actual mini-map would show the movement of the AI/enemy when it's their turn...

Reduction of power for Necropolis units YAAAAAAAAAYYY!

Increase of power for Inferno units YAAAAAAAAAYYY!

Decrease of power of HEALING spells and abilities YAAAAAAAAAYYY!

Refitting of healing powers of certain creatures (Haven SISTERS mainly) YAAAAAAAAAYYY!

Increase of power for most DIRECT DAMAGE SPELLS, especially ZONE DAMAGE SPELLS (like FIREBALL) I hope this excludes Lightning bolt....

What are the exact numbers? I don't have the game installed at the moment, but am curious to see how well off they are working.

EDIT:
Oh, those changes are for 1.5. Oy. Guess I'll wait patiently then.

I think not, it refers to maps like archipielago I think.

Why fixing it while you can just eliminate it?

This low changes and the changes planned for 1.5 makes my fears true, Limbic still not able to handle such big proyect, not able to make serius work there. They better release something big this summer or they're dead for the community :S

PD: No explanation about the delay of 1.4

PPD: Most, or may I even say all of 1.5 changes can be made with the orc-editor tool out there? In like 1 hour?

Back in 1.2 BH was still in charge, sometime after which they fell out with ubi. Limbic had been around for some time but only took a more prominent role recently, as the patch planning posted by Irina might indicate. If memory serves the first two patches were mosty functional stuff as there was so much that was broken, people had trouble actualy running the game.

It's not that simple. The tools that BH left behind were not so easy getting used to and it was not exactly clear from where you could change some things. Now of course that is a different tale.. The testing and tweaking has sped up considerably.

Well, at least things are starting to move.

I will wait to see how 1.5 turns out before checking the game.
In the meantime ill pass the time with M&M online cardgame which didn't turn bad either.

Yup, patch 1.5 looks to be the best patch yet with getting stuck into the meat of the game....balancing.

Yeah, 1.5 looks promising. Let's hope they don't make a classic UbiSoft with "balancing" by making what was before overpowered completely useless and by making what was before useless completely overpowered.

[s]On a different note, before I update News Topic, do I understand correctly that 1.4 IS actually out - or is this just an update on the content?[/s]
Anyway, I guess re-reading main post made my question redundant.

I'm glad the patches are finally rolling out, but I've moved on.  Diablo 3 just came on, Champions Online is improving, and Guild Wars 2 is on the horizon.

The patch just isn't enough to draw me back into Heroes 6.
