nice
most of changes looks promising and ill check them ass soon i get home

but i see no buffs for wolfens... while they desperatly need some.

EDIT
- "Guardian Angel" spell now allows to be cast on Legendary units;

So now she is able to cast it on herself?
if yes - than this is really bad idea :P

Men, this patch kills the game. Considering that both VIP and King of the hill game modes are impossible to win without wolves, the only suitable game mode is actually Deatchmatch. And you remove the chance to select the desired game mode? Please phone me when you fix this. For now, I stop playing.

bye

What? :D

at the time Wolfens can't win any mode... except maybe king of thehill with worg ;p
option to choose only one game type was higly abusive - and this fix is nice.

Since about 50-60 games i didn't loost any game againt the wolfens - and i play all game types.
Gargoyle is better in killing Vip than any Wolfen to be honest.

Vip was unbalanced when fangs costed 45 ap (but wolfens was op in all game types back then), and when PoB was STR 15 TOU 14 (but all game types was ok back then).

I remember winning a VIP fight against wolves with my Chimera, not long ago.

However, I can believe that wolves are at a slight advantage in this mode. Maybe it will compensate for their slight disadvantage in deathmatch ?

slight disadvantage? - at the time they are auto-lost against all serious players :P

Edit:
- Changed the way the "Parry" attribute works. It now forces a reroll if an enemy melee attack was successful against the unit. Increased its AP cost

8 on Swordsman, 16 on Knight... once per turn?
its nothing else than another Nerf...

EDIT : We checked on our end and there was a localization error, both in FR and ENG localization.

The skill is not working as intended though - we will be working on a hotfix and a localization update.

For now, Parry will trigger on any melee attack, as long as you did not activate your unit.
The intended version should be : Parry works only once per enemy activation, and it does not matter whether you activated your unit this turn or not.

There is something wrong with a server game after this patch. Three attempts, and all games broken. Waste of time. Please fix it, and the open for players.
