    • Massive lag spikes when a Hero has Fyre-Storm's Flame Blade (FSFB) and Sacred Force Blade (SFB) and is taking damage from 15+ Nether Fiends during Doom.

    Yes, it is 2015! I'm excited to still be supporting this map. I know much more about what I'm doing these days, so the quality of these updates keeps getting better and better. In addition to these bug fixes I also intend to add more uses for AtD Points and explore Death Hunter AI.

    Big Bad Bug

    Hi,I found that Frozen Archer's ultimate can be casted without any cooldown and manacost. D:
    Here's the thing,you click Frozen Blast,the blasts are shot and deals damage before the cooldown,there is about 0.5 second channeling time before it go to cooldown,so if you click "s" (stop) immediately after casting Frozen blast,the skill won't go cooldown,by doing it repeatly the Frozen Archer can kill everyone within 5 seconds.Check my attachment!
    Sorry for my bad grammar. :xxd:

    San, wow! This has likely been a bug since Frozen Blast was created. I will look into this and try to get a patch out soon. I can see how this would be game breaking. Once I have a solution I will post in here. Thanks!!

    I know I've been taking a while on this fix but there were a few other things I wanted to fix and test as well. And I've got pretty limited time to do that between work and wedding planning! I will hopefully have something ready to release in the next two weeks. Thanks for being patient!

    Hey, I've found a rather large bug: When you buy an elite item from the Merchant Ship of Treasures after already having bought one(so you already have 1 in inventory), it says it refunds the money but in actuality, you get a 2nd elite item's stats for free. You can even see the visual effect it has on your hero. So if you spam this for a while you will have completely high and broken stats.

    Great find. This has probably been in AtD since the introduction of that refund system. It looks like that because Elite items are defined as "undroppable", their boosts are applied permanently to the Hero even when the item is force removed from the game. I'm working to figure out how exactly to remedy this. I have a number of ideas, one of which is to remove the "undroppable" status of the item. Thanks!

    That's super unfortunate! I will take a look over the weekend and see if I can figure out what's going on. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to untangle.

    Do you have any more detail around when this seems to happen? Any info I can use to chase this down would be helpful. Does it seem related to timing, or a spell ability, or any particular in game event?


    Thank you SpiritBob for the report!

    Yes, it happened immediately when the map loaded. In the case I'm describing, 3 people de-synced, and the end-game trigger (the one prompting you your Atd Rank, which in our case is always Atd Noob, and allowing you to -save) triggered, forcing the game to end after 2 minutes elapsed.
