  • Re: Why does Robot release most of the patches on Tuesdays? And about IA

    Monday to prep the servers for the patch. Weds-Friday to observe the patch for any critical issues and to hotfix if necessary. Patching on friday would have a good chance of it being broken all weekend.
  • Re: Stinkeye - Too Weak

    There should be a weaver to get the laser back in some form. It's a cool enough thing to have that it shouldn't be eliminated entirely. Maybe a weaver that automatically makes a laser shoot between your slow and attack totems. You can adjust its potency or whatever to make it balanced, but lasers are rad. 
  • Minions and map design

    On maps with lots of entrances, I like it when there are entrances which primarily have a certain type of enemy come out of them.

    Examples:

    On eventide fortress, the east entrance is entirely runners, so you can plan on using traps which are great against them (brimstone, haymakers, ballistas etc)
    On highlands (rift lord), the west entrance is elementals, middle is mostly heavy minions, and east is runners (for most waves). This means flip traps are great for west, a dense killbox is great for middle, and anti-runner traps are great for east. 

    I would like to see this done more on future maps.

    I would also like to see entrances with just stilt orcs. These are cool in that they avoid floor traps, but right now they're mixed in with other minions on every entrance, so you really don't change strategy much.

    Along this same line, I would like to suggest a new type of minion: Armored Kobolds.

    The idea is that they would move slowly, have a ton of health (and/or damage reduction), but be very susceptible to physics traps and knockback abilities. This would add strategic variety as currently all minions with high health are also resistant to physics.
  • Re: A way to reset chest hero wins.

    The character wins chests discouraging use of matchmaking is definitely something that needs to be addressed. Don't want to queue into a map that I've already 100%'d when I could solo a map I haven't.
  • Re: I'm getting sick of this "Need stuff, start match to get said stuff, end up getting (fodder) stuff."

    Some amount of control is clearly needed. I think you said you were like 80 and have no spring parts?

    I'm 57 with no component parts, and boy what I wouldn't do for a gnomish repair kit or ice amulet.
