    Patch 1.30.2 PTR Update #3 #4 and #5

    As the whispers of Reforged continue to sweep across Azeroth, more additions to the new hosting system have been added to the current game on the Public Testing Realm. It includes various bug fixes, a few hero and race balance changes, and more host/player commands akin to some provided by bots. This should help with both host and lobby commands along with furthering personal player control of their social experiences.

    See to all the changes on the official Blizzard post here.
    As always, please test the game on the PTR and provide your feedback. Thank you!

    ------

    In addition, there was a known bug for Reforged pre-orders not including the game. Blizzard confirmed that you'll be able to get the original game as part of the Reforged pre-order on December 1, as stated here.

    -----

    4th PTR Update

    More bug fixes for 1.30.2. Those who pre-ordered Reforged can also now play on the PTR!
    PTR 1.30.2 Holiday Weekend Edition

    5th PTR Update

    More bug fixes and addressing desyncs.

    We need 1 more thing for the commands to be complete: !votekick for situations where the host is gone!

    1200 HP down to 900, that's a huge nerf for taurens :eek: (Edit : not taurens, but tauren totem! Phew!)

    Anyway, good stuff coming up, I guess these new options will calm things down for people who were worried about the end of bots :)

    Actually I recall 2 other things that may be needed as well: !owner to be able to transfer host commands to someone else and !pub to be able to rename the lobby. That + the aforementioned !votekick would make this patch golden.

    ''For arranged forces, changing player color will change player slot in game list''

    What do they mean with this?

    Red is always #1
    Blue is always #2?

    Or what?

    I assume that this player slot change thing is for multiplayer melee only and does not affect triggers etc?
    Else changing color with the trigger editor is turning everything into a bloody mess.
    Custom maps and even original campaigns would be in deep trouble.

    Some commands to consider adding that could be used by all players in the game:

    !ff *Forfeiting with a majority consensus for players on the same team*
    !draw *Drawing the game with a majority consensus for players on the same team*
    !votekick *Voting someone out of the game for possibly game ruining based on majority
    consensus for all players (enemies / allies)*
    !checkme *Checking current latency*


    When we talk about a majority consensus for players on the same team, I would say ratio of 4 players out of 5 to pass the vote.
    When we talk about a majority consensus for all players (enemies / alllies), 7 or 8 players out of 10 to pass the vote.

    Woah this is really impressive!!!! We are so damned lucky to have these guys from the classics team working on this project!!!! I remember in the early days of sc2, the community was so vocal about issues with the game and it took them like 2 expansions to finally listen to the community.

    I guess, it's for ladder only or it's related to the fixed player settings within forces? But wasn't this last one like that before?

    I don't know what but something is wrong in this build, all models were working in the build before but some models(not sharing anything in common) now don't show up ingame but their portraits are working and it can't be about imported material cause well here is the wisp that uses only ingame assets:

    Adsız.png

    edit: interesting... I exported 'flare.blp' that 3 models shared, there is still one bug atleast but it might be from my side

    edit2: Really weird game lost it's feature to read very compressed images

    The first one would be ones i will never want to see in the game. Custom maps are far too diverse to make outside existing commands enable stuff like that. Not even saying that the commands themself create defeatist attitude, which can be seen in games like LOL.

    But On-Topic: I really appreciate the addition made in the update. Every step to make the people independing from outside bots that pollute lobbies is a step in the right direction.
    Btw, PTR servers in EU. So now i think i will mess around with the ptr.

    Another thing that came to my mind now is the following concerning the !ban command:

    1) When we use the !ban command, how does it function internally? Does the WC3 client create a list on your computer and keeps adding people to that list every time you use it?

    2) Does the !ban command create a singular list attached to your CD-KEY or only to your actual username on B.NET ?
    If it's attached to your CD-KEY, it means you maintain the same list whether you create 20 different accounts everyday.
    Now if it's attached to your actual username, it means you will have a list for each single account you are actually using.

    3) When you are in a game, is the host the only person who can use the !ban command or other people can use it as well to add people to their own lists?

    4) Any possible thoughts about interconnecting/combining my banlist with someone's else banlists?

    Seems to me like, for example, if you imagine Azeroth Wars, changing your color to Red will move you to the slot of the Undead Scourge. Changing to Pink puts you in the slot of the Orcish Horde, and so on(?).
