Level 9
Apr 28, 2006
Well, its been anotehr 2 months of solid work but the next version of Requiem Of The Gods is finally ready!

You can get it off the download page on the site, and view the changelog there, btu ist repeated below for convienence.

All standard creep camps now have a chance to drop items & bonuses as the creeps are killed!
Added 2 more Murgul camps.
A new preview screen has been added.
Added a new -lumber command for referees that explains to players how to earn lumber in the game.
Each creep has a % chance to drop an item which is based around the global "creep level"
The creep level dictates how hard the creeps that spawn are and ranges from creep level 1-5.

All the hero tooltips for every ability for every hero have been redone and now include being able to see all the attributes of an ability before you use it.
The new tooltips now include exactly how to use an ability and exactly what it does.
All hero hotkeys have been fixed so that all spells/abilities are now learnt and used by using the X,C,V,B hotkeys so you no longer need to remember millions of different hotkey combinations for each hero!
The hotkey for choosing heroes has been changed from "Z" to "X".
Moved the location of one of the possible titan spawning zones further from the creeps.
Lots of new terrain fixes have been included that open up more attack routes, a wider gameplay area, a new tunnel for travelling across the map to the enemies side from the north as well as reducing the amount of doodads and making the map generally look better.

The way the base towers work has been revised. The towers now have two attacks, one of which is the very short ranged "instant death" attack that prevents the enemies from entering the base, the new attack deals medium damage at a longer range, stretching right across the "slow aura" outside the bases. This is so a player chasing an enemy into the base will not come under attack by the longer range towers and should survive long enough to realise he should be falling back instead of filing into the "instant death" base towers.
The way the game handles players leaving has been changed.
Now, when a player leavers all of his current resources are NOT shared out between his remaining teammates. Instead they are stored. This is so when a referee takes control of the leaver's hero he now gains what resources the leaver had at time of leaving the game. This also prevents the abuse where a single player on a team with 3 leavers creates 1 "super" hero with all the leavers resources then levels the leaver heroes using his "super" hero.
Any resources the leaver hero earns after leaving is shared as usual.
When a team hits the score limit during a private duel they now win immediately and don't have to wait for the duel to end first.
Final team scores are now displayed in the winning cinematic for deathmatch games.
