    People that don't have a strong PC are already having FPS issues, it'd just make life even worse. Reaching a playable state that's enjoyable for everyone is actually more important.

    My map currently easily drops to 20-25 fps for me in multiplayer while others report having full 60. How am I supposed to rate that? xD

    As from what I have seen in your map, I am pretty sure you can still optimize some things. If not by code, then by design.

    It's the opposite for me; my FPS is always ~60, yet others say it's laggy for them. My PC isn't even that good, it was considered relatively cheap 3 years ago, so you can imagine.

    I'm still working on it, though. The reason why it was released is because of the new tooltips, so that hopefully I could get some feedback on them. And also because of bug fixes, but it actually introduced a new one (that's been fixed, of course).

    I'm also constantly optimizing the script. In the last patch I reworked the way assists worked, based on a cool idea that I had got. I even optimized some passives that had inner cooldowns, all thanks to that very simple, yet very effective thing. (I kinda feel dumd that it took me so much to come up with it though). Today I updated my CTL and made all the periodics that have no use running stop, when they don't have a thing to do. Jungle creeps also don't need the 32 tick timer, their periodic also runs every second now, too.

    Future plans include reworking Shagutt, Snodhar's ultimate, changing Anub'Theran's Q so that it only targets the ground, and knocks up the first enemy it encounters, and also finally making something happen to leavers' heroes. Oh, and a button to turn off the fog, that should help significantly. After that I might release another version, IDK.

    Do you still work on this?
    Also Anub'Therans Q doesnt do any dmg while it should. His E has 6 seconds cd and lasts 6 seconds... do i miss something here? why isnt this skill simply a passive?
