|#1: 1.19 OPEN BETA Patchlog|
New hero: Pit Lord
Some changes made to the loading screen. Also, players now don't have to press a key to announce they're ready, so the game will start exactly when everyone loads instead of wasting additional time.
Replaced the Dire Ogre's bonus on death. After killing the dire ogre, the killing team will have one improved Dire Bandit/Sentry on one lane, much stronger than the ordinary (for 5 minutes).
Damage Meter improved, it will now tell you your dps exactly 5 seconds after you've first hit it, and then every 5 seconds (till you stop). It should also display the number of hits more accurately. The DPS might be different than before; The new damage meter measures it more accurately.
Creeps resurrected by animate dead will now have the same level of attack/armor/hp as the team leader's (not level 0).
Reworked the int heroes so that they now start with more armor (mostly 1 or 2 more armor, no change for sorceress or weather lord).
Added a -survival mode: A battle against series of creeps, only works if all players are on one team. you setup how much higher the enemy creeps levels are compared to yours (linearly). You can also setup what their initial level is. For example "-survival22 10" makes the enemy units level up 2.2 levels each time your units level up one level, and they start at level 10.
Added a welcoming screen at the start of HoSK. This welcoming screen advertises the "new" command. The welcome screen goes away if you press ESC, or when you select a hero.

BUGS, TEXTS, ETC
Fixed the mana regeneration bug on Sapphire Staff.
All swarm-type skills now have their damage type noted in description (it's not the same for every skill).
There will be a game owner in the game even if there's no blue at start. The game owner will be the first player by number (color).
Fixed an issue where an observer could end the game through the -surrender command.
When -center is called, spawner trees and ships now get correctly destroyed
Fixed Crescent barrage to only work on enemies.
Fixed Wolf Rider's Voodoo Walk hotkey.
HoSK Crash when near SK (when he fights against someone with Druid's Aura) has been fixed.
Fixed the hotkey for leveling up, and the required hero levels for Gnoll's primary (Crescent Barrage).
Fixed the rune of speed to indeed give only +35% increased MS instead of the maximum speed mode.
Fixed Akama hotkeys so no two hotkeys on powers are the same.
Healing Salve against Nukes now doesn't trigger when you have it at level 0.
Akama now properly gains agi instead of int when using Unleash Power.
Malfurion shackle duration now defaults to same number regardless of the target ( = Fixed the aerial shackles duration on SK).
Fixed an issue with the passive orbs of the eternal named Hands of Sorrow Knight.
Fixed Slaywoo's Shuriken so that it doesn't sometimes stay on the map after being rendered inactive.
dracula darkwalk: illusion information in the description now shows up correctly.
Vampirism passive now shows an icon when you're looking at your passive skills in your hero's spellbook (it always worked, it just has an icon there now to avoid confusion).
Rhynns eye: added the max sight range in the description.
Rabbit polymorph no longer gives you mana while you're in it (Blizzard has recently fixed the negative mana regeneration bug while being hexed, so the workaround in HoSK is now also removed).
Fixed siphon to work correctly at first 2 levels, where it didn't last more than 1 second.
Grotlantneruber description updated to point out that its passive applies on all 9 of its active hits.
Fixed SK minion spawning when the game would be in -ram/-center mode.

|#2: What was wrong with the scoreboard :(? its kinda.... ugly now.|
(13.Jul - 20:16, 2011)
(13.Jul - 20:17, 2011)
|#4: ye when u minimized it it doesnt show ur kills/deaths,|
and pitlord is bugged, camera is rotating. it might be its primary
(13.Jul - 20:38, 2011)
|#5: never mind the scoreboard it had simply some w8 time it to turn 0/0/0|
but deathtimer isnt right
camera problems with dryad also, alot less and it slowly rotates from right to left.
(14.Jul - 12:39, 2011)
|#6: the Camera Bug is not hero-related, it's very likely related to the -new command if you use it while the "intro sequence" is playing.|
(14.Jul - 13:27, 2011)
|#7: nop didnt use it neither times so it isnt related to that, it might be some items, gz spells where diffrent, not sure what items i had and didnt save replay|
Score: 69 // Level: 0
(14.Jul - 21:01, 2011)
|#8: Noticed a glitch with the meteor drop skill and that dmg buff dot howl. When you |
have both powers available and use the howl it will automatically fire the meteor
shower for the duration of the howls casting time and there is no dot dmg to the
pit lord. It only worked when both skills were off cd at the same time
(14.Jul - 21:03, 2011)
|#9: Ouch, what an embarassing bug XD|
(15.Jul - 03:41, 2011)
|#10: Pit lords infernals are a bit too buff, also naga princesses ww power probably |
needs a nerf. 7s cd 300 dmg break and 20% ms at level 3. Is anyone else down for
changing naga princesses primary to something more appealing? (and less imba)
Also, i think we should start a discussion of the passive strength bonus. On an
agility hero with their crazy attack speed this pulverize adds far too much
