Release the Chipper!!! | Patch 0.3.2 – 3 Changelogs

HoN released a new hero the Chipper. There were lots of bugs that came out like funky servers and more crashes. Per Maliken, they’re doing their best to fix this . There’s an in game note that says:

We are aware of a bug associated with the experience burst from killing heroes. We are working on fixing and patching that right now. We apologize for the oversight. Thanks for everyone’s support and enjoyment of HoN. The response and popularity has been tremendous and we love trying to please our fans!

~Maliken

I guess we’ll be expecting a patch soon. Anyway, here’s the changelog:

– Any teammate can now take Wards of Sight and Wards of Revelation from a courier, regardless of who purchased them

* Previously either the courier owner or the purchaser of the wards had to manually give the wards to a teammate; now the teammates can take it by themselves

– Removing yourself as a buddy now fails with an appropriate error message.

– Fixed right clicking a buddy to display the appropriate menu choices the first time they are clicked (instead of the second)

– Fixed Team/All chat to remember it’s previous state, so when navigating to another channel and coming back to the game lobby it will properly show the last chat type that was used

– When in the game lobby, clicking the “Send” button will now return focus to the text input

– Fixed some of the right click menu options either not appearing or not working

– Arranged matches should now be reported to clan members and buddies, but the join notification will not show a “Join Game” button, it will merely be informational

– Using a /whois or “User Info” on another player in a matchmaking game should display their information correctly now

– Implemented the community mod “Chat Textbox Improvements” for the game lobby, credit to slime73 for this contribution

* Clicking anywhere on the chat window will set focus to the text input

* Pressing escape will remove focus from the text input if it has no text, if there is text it will clear it without removing focus. You can then press escape again to remove focus

  1. The Chipper looks like a good support hero, but I haven`t played him yet, so I can`t really say much about him. His skills seem to be interesting, but they probably won`t bring anything fresh to competitive gameplay, except the “focus buffer” maybe, which might be useful for tanks or carry heroes. Ah, we`ll have to check out this little guy on the battlefield to say something more. 🙂

    • Probably yes. Coz his skill aren’t that useful. I mean he’s a good support but there are other better choices like Demented shaman. Anyway, thanks for the comment. Really can’t imagine a girl who maintains a jewelry blog will be interested/competitive in HoN. 🙂 I guess HoN is not just for guys. Cheers!

  2. all updates no hon guides!
