    [4.1.0] Patch Notes - HoNiversary!




    From balance changes to quality of life improvements to reworks and everything in between, HoN 4.1.0 is going to be a legendary patch that will bring new and old players exciting changes freshening up the HoN experience.





    The third and final update to the Hero Mastery system is here for this year's HoNiversary. From additional levels to new rewards this Hero Mastery Update is sure to improve your experience and expand your possibilities in the HoN Hero Mastery system.

    Hero Mastery Rewards
    HoN 4.1.0

    The Individual Hero Mastery has been increased to LV15 meaning that you will have the possibility to earn 5 additional rewards for every hero in the game!

    Here are the new levels and rewards:
    LV11 Coupon
    LV12 50 SC
    LV13 Emote*
    LV14 60 Tickets
    LV15 Epic Border**






    New Reward: Emote

    When you rank up a hero to Level 13 in the Hero Mastery System you'll be granted access to the new Emote ability. Located in the UI near your taunt and courier icons, the Emote ability will make your character do a special dance on the battlefield. Whether you're in the thick of battle or just starting out in lane, now you can show everyone in lane that you've mastered your hero!


    New Reward: Epic Border

    With more levels comes another tier of Hero Mastery decor. When you achieve LV15 with a hero in the Hero Mastery system your hero's border icon, taunt badge, and teleportation effects will be taken to the next level and upgraded to "Epic".



    Overall Hero Mastery Rewards
    HoN 4.1.0

    The Overall Hero Mastery has been increased to LV100 from LV50 and yep, you guessed it. With more levels comes more rewards! Every additional 5 levels that you earn beyond LV50 will net you with a sweet reward.

    Here are the new levels and rewards for the Overall Hero Mastery:






    New Reward: Super Boost

    To further propel you into Mastery greatness, we've created the Super Boost. The Super Boost is the mecca of all boosts. You can use the Super Boost to earn 9x times the normal Mastery Experience for one match.

    There are a few other details that go along with the Super Boost:
    * Super Boosts can only be earned via the Mastery System.
    * Each player will receive a free Super Boost upon launch of 4.1.0.
    * Super Boost can only be used on LV1 & LV0 (Mastery level before match) Heroes.



    Boost Bundles
    HoN 4.1.0

    Another addition to the Hero Mastery System is Boost Bundles. Boost Bundles can be purchased in store and contain 10 Mastery Boosts. When you purchase a Boost Bundle, the product won't show up in your vault but you will be given 10 additional Mastery Boosts that will show up during the end screen of a match.

    Boost Bundles will offer a 10% discount on normal Mastery Boosts!

    Gold Hero Bonus Experience Increase
    HoN 4.1.0

    Adding in an additional perk to the Hero Mastery System, we've increased the Mastery XP Bonus per Gold Hero (LV10 or higher) from 5% to 10%. This should allow you to master more heroes in less time!

    Keep in mind that the maximum bonus remains at 50% so now you can reach the maximum with 5 Gold Heroes as opposed to 10.

    Mastery Ladder
    HoN 4.1.0

    Lastly, we've added a Hero Mastery Ladder where you can head to see the top 1000 players with the highest Mastery Ranks. Who doesn't like to compare their achievements?



    Champions of Newerth Season 3
    HoN 4.1.0 - 4.1.5

    After gathering the feedback that you've all given from the past two seasons of Champions of Newerth (CoN), we're here with quite a few changes coming with Season 3. Hopefully we've addressed the issues that you've felt needed to be addressed and if you have further feedback on the system we are continually listening so please make sure you make your feedback known.

    Season 3 Changes

    - Due to the general inflation of each player's Rank during the last Season, Rank compression will be heavier than normal this Season.
    - The Rank growth has been adjusted to not be as geared towards progression, and will feature absolutely no progression outside of skill in the upper brackets.
    - Win Streak bonuses will no longer be active in this Season.
    - Players can now see whether they have won or lost a Placement Match in their Placement Match history progression bar.



    HoN 4.1.0 isn't just a patch for HoNiversary. This patch is bringing a load of balance changes that should give the players a fresh look into the world of Newerth. From new items to reworked heroes to quality of life changes, 4.1.0 will be one of the biggest and most impactful patches of 2017!



    Backdoor Protection System
    HoN 4.1.0

    - Backdoor Protection System will not activate when taking damage from friendly units.

    - Tier 1 Towers (outermost towers) are not affected by the Backdoor Protection System
    - Tier 3 Towers and all other base buildings lose the benefits of the Backdoor Protection System if 1 of those Tier 3 Towers or base buildings have lost the Backdoor Protection.

    These changes only scratch the service of everything that's being changed in HoN 4.1.0. For all the balance changes and the entire set of patch notes, head here:




    Player Communication
    HoN 4.1.0

    We know that good communication is one of the core aspects to good teamwork and ultimately winning a game of HoN. We've added in a number of new ways to communicate with your teammates without the use of Voice Chat:

    - Players can now hold down the "Alt" key and left-click on various parts of the HUD to communicate key pieces of information to their teammates via Team Chat. These include (but are not limited to):
    *An ability on your hero (tells your teammates whether the ability is ready to be used or not, and indicates the reason why)
    *An item in your inventory (tells your teammates whether the item is ready to be used or not, and indicates the reason why)
    *An item in the item shop (tells your teammates whether you plan on buying an item and how much more gold you need to purchase it)
    *Enemy hero icon on the sidebar (tells your teammates respawn time if the hero is dead, or indicates that the specific hero is missing)
    *The selected unit's Health and Mana bar (tells your teammates your current Health or Mana correspondingly)
    *State bar icons (tells your teammates that you're affected by a particular state)
    *Current Gold (tells your teammates whether you have enough gold or not to buy back - this takes into consideration the gold loss on death if you are still alive when you do this)

    - Players can now ping the minimap while the game is paused.

    Automated Courier
    HoN 4.1.0

    Another quality of life change comes with the new Automated Courier. Not only will the courier be faster but now you can rearrange items on your courier while it's in transit to and from your hero.

    Cloud Storage Settings
    HoN 4.1.0

    Gone are the days of having to recreate your personalized settings every time that you change computers. With Cloud Storage Settings you can upload, save, and sync your personalized settings to the cloud so they'll be there anytime you want them!

    HoN Facebook Live (BETA)
    HoN 4.1.0
    Players will now be able to livestream their games to their Facebook! Choose to show off your skills to your friends in real time!
    Note that there are some known issues (mouse flickering and most Facebook features are not supported).
