    Ayy Pudge

    GENERAL:
    • New Hero: Pudge!
    • Decreased Assist Time (15 > 7)
    • Decreased overall sliding and bouncing
    • Fixed player on player collisions
    • Fixed Blink collision bug
    • Fixed Bloodseeker derooting during countdowns
    • Fixed the referee bug introduced in version 0.3
    BALANCE:
    • Earthshaker's Slam now has a 0.20 second delay

    I ended up reverting the things I did to Enigma since they ended up breaking him.

    Nightstalker Buff Idea:

    Allow Empowered Kick to kick other players (puts empowered kick on a longer cd)

    I'll be releasing a hotfix soon with the pushing collision bugs fixed and the invoker stands bug fixed.

    I'm waiting on Chinese localization before I hotfix (shouldn't be long). Worst case I'll push the hotfix out tomorrow night at midnight PST regardless of translations or not.

    Nightstalker doesn't need a buff rofl. Watch Lethal vs Civ week 2.

    1. Never said he needed it. Just an idea where he can push other heroes around. (Seeing pudge gave me some funny ideas).
    2. Civ is my cap'n. I did watch that. Great ns play there.

    It was less "great play" and more abusing both host advantage and an OP hero (when you have low ping especially).

    Pudge:
    Hook: 9 units (normal ball kick is 8).

    Thoughts:
    Thankfully, the hook can't enter into the enemy goal. His role will be defender. He can grab the ball at start of a round quickly (haven't tested against other people to know if it is the fastest in game or not). Enemies that are hooked are silenced, but what about allies? The hook does ricochet off of walls.

    Some ideas on advance tactics:
    1) Feint: kick the ball to get someone like an Anti-Mage to waste sprint to go after it but use hook to pull the ball back.
    2) When on offense, stand close to the goal line and pull, say a Slark with the ball, with the hook to the goal line for him to score.

    Both of those tactics would be risky because you would be using the ability non-defensively as a defender.

    Decreased Assist Time (15 > 7):
    And all of the defenders cried. The end.

    Earthshaker's Slam now has a 0.20 second delay:
    Admittedly I was never perfect at timing the slam shot, but now I haven't even been able to perform it once. Can someone who is amazing at the timing please report if you can do it or not and if you can is it even viable in a pro match (i.e. due to the lowered height and speed)? If it isn't, then Earthshaker would no longer be considered an offense hero.

    As long as ES has the ability to slam a GK backwards with or without the ball, he will be a viable offensive hero.

    You can do it if you kick backwards.

    Why nerf a bad hero?

    Eh, I mean, I was going to clarify further on that post by saying "if it's strong" but I was on my phone and was too lazy to continue typing.

    Released the hotfix with collision bugfix and also fixed the invoker stands bug (I believe. We weren't able to reproduce it in tests).
