Not sure if this works for Reforged (Button Manager v1.8.2) but could be used to turn active looking icons to passive ones for passive abilities.
Other than that, it's pretty much Castle Defense.

I suppose you mean "Castle Fight", Castle Defense is a different genre of maps.
And yes, that's the goal of this version, to be the most complete, balanced, bugfree and polished Version of Castle Fight yet.
Which, according to hosting statistics, was achieved, as CF DE is now the most hosted CF version out there, by far.
New units/races/features are in development for the future.

Been a long time castle fight fan. Glad to see this being constantly updated and supported. I generally like all the new changes and balances. There's just a minor bug right now regarding the blood fiend not producing unless you sync it to another building. Otherwise i do not really see any other bugs after playing this a lot of times. There are also a few things i feel strongly about regarding the change between this and the old original castle fight.

I feel that the orb of lightning should be global to avoid stalemates as much as possible. This game stalemates too much and many of the changes encourage defensive strategies rather than offensive ones. For example being able to combine the blast staff + towers + short range orb of lightning makes defending too strong.

Also, some of the new units like the Goliath and twins seem very very strong. But i could be wrong about that. Also, regarding new races, there is another castle fight version in this site as well that have a desert faction. It's pretty interesting and balanced imo, that version also have a few new cool abilities such as the vampire being able to blink attack.

I look forward to seeing more changes and I am really happy that this map is still being actively played and supported.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you enjoy the game and appreciate the updates.

The blood fiend not producing unless synced to another building is fixed in the upcoming version.

Your opinions on the changes between the old original Castle Fight and the current version are quite subjective and can depend a lot on different factors such as game modes and player skill. E.g. with artillery there are much less stalemates than without. Beginner players might not know how to push properly with the use of scrolls and double damage. Tryhard players might play forward cages to stalemate the game on purpose.
Orb being global just makes the item pretty much mandatory for both teams which doesn't seem fun. Blast Staff is almost always a bad decision.

Anyway it's always great to hear player thoughts.
