Yeah, this really makes Devourer more effective overall. Normally, he can do a ton of damage simply by getting an early Vestments, thus significantly reducing Decay damage, and then getting high level decay. However, you NEED the long hook to get people INTO the decay, and by the time you get to the point where both hook and decay are maxed, that combo is already losing effectiveness. Now, I think the build should be Hook - Decay - Armor - Decay - Decay - Ult - Decay - Max Hook.

Yes you read the correctly. Due to some issues and other things we are not going to be patching the beta client today. I know you are all disappointed, but look on the bright side...

We are going to patch fully functional replays into the test client.

Yes, Replays are done.

So to sum it up, this test client after a patch today will contain:

Balance Patch full notes

Matchmaking Test

Replays

If only I could get the test client to work for me. :(

I expect the real patch to come out sometime during this weekend, but having replays will be pretty damn sweet.

Edit: okay, I'm not playing with leonidus anymore but ill still play with the other shizzies.

As I type this I'm sitting in my hotel room in NC for my interview at Duke tomorrow morning. I'll be back next month I promise!

Good luck!

This last game... Ugh... Russian forsaken gave puppet 10 kills mid. Ended in most of our team around level 10 and getting killed every respawn by level 25 puppet. And the god damn Russian wouldn't concede. Got about 20 kills before the base died.

Now, this is a story all about how

This game got flipped-turned upside down

And I'd like to take a minute

Just sit right there

I'll tell you how we balanced the game and made it so fair

Near bot lane-n-jungle, he sat and gazed

At the full lane was where he spent most of his days

Chillin' out hittin' denyin' all cool

And sendin' all the kids back to the pool

When a couple of guys, who were up to no good

Startin' making trouble in his neighborhood

He lost one big fight and raged everywhere

Then demanded we all make the game way more fair!

Y'all said we're so bad and had all this fear

That no change would be fresh since we won't do a mirror

If anything you said that such a patch is rare

But we just said 'Have some faith, yo' - 'Don't be a square!'

We rolled out a patch around seven or eight

And you yelled to the devs 'Yo homes did us a favor!'

We looked to our kingdom

It was finally there

To sit on the throne as the game that's most fair...

The S2devs are awesome. Also, the new patch is up. :P

(I'm the invisible near-invisible poop spot on the bottom of the screen)

First game on the new patch. Not sure If I've ever had a better game (stat wise). If things keep up like this, I may make my 1.0:1 KDR goal sooner than I planned. Also, I think my psr has normalized at ~1625.

Your Deadwood has a disturbing lack of portal keys.

New server seems to be faster. Longcat must approve, somewhere.

The new server is much better from what Dave has told me - +5 GB RAM, CPU x4 faster, 4-5 times the space, etc.

Didn't you say a Pesti/Pred-style item build was better?

Sweet. It's definitely rendering pages faster (and if it's a noticible difference, then it's definitely worth every penny).

Portal Key should be gotten on Pesti too. :D

Insanitarius is perfectly fine on deadwood, though I find puzzlebox provides you with a decent amount of DPS and a shitload more utility.

Daemonic Breastplate is probably the best lategame item on Pred, Pesti and DW.
