Patch Notes: 0.38+282 Codander Doomwage

Drauven Rework, new buttons, legacy browser, and more!

We're delivering 3 Roadmap items in this patch!

Drauven have been reworked with a bunch of new and terrible (for the heroes) abilities. The centerpiece of this is Drauven Blood, which now grants regeneration to all Drauven (but not e.g. terror birds). Because they can regenerate, Drauven want to slow fights down, and so many of their new abilities are about thwarting the heroes' ability to burst them. We think this will make a big difference in how they feel to fight.

We're also delivering a new Legacy Browser environment with some filtering features. We'll have some new music in here in a future patch but it's already a much more pleasant place to find your favorites.

We're also removing the experimental tag for multiplayer along with some improvements to the player experience, especially when playing with mods. The "Always on mods" concept has been simplified so that now they can be turned on and off per game.

We're getting pretty close to announcing a launch date, which is extremely exciting for us as a team. It's been a journey and a half! As part of that, we've updated the roadmap to better reflect exactly what we expect to ship with 1.0, and what will likely slip to a 1.1 or 1.2 update. You can find our roadmap here.

As we run up to launch our regular patch schedule will most likely be interrupted, but we'll of course continue to communicate and address bugs as needed.
