v5.47 Changes

Core/Gameplay Changes

Bonus Gold
• Remade: The end-of-round bonus gold system was remade, within each team, the player with the least income (which does not need to be the goalie) gets extra gold. The amount given is equal to 30% of the difference between that player's income and the average income of the other players on his team.

Creep Behaviour
• Added: A new, experimental system has been implemented whereby creeps will be forcibly teleported out of your area if they have been within it for too long. This is to prevent abuse of the creep/pathing system, but without disallowing juggling.
• Changed: Creeps now explode faster once a block is discovered

Sell Timer
• Remade: Selling a tower now works as follows: Towers have a short default sell time. If you sell with creeps in your area, that time gets longer. Your sell time will decrease over time and will reset if your area is free of creeps.

Mode Changes

• Added: Hide sight (-hs) mode has been added. When activated, players have no sight of the enemy half of the map and cannot use the reveal vault ability. Choosing a builder also doesn't show a text message to enemies.
• Added: A new in-game command (-afk) is now available, it will tell you if any players have been inactive for too long
• Added: You can now type -clear to clear all text messages off your screen

Random command
• Added: If you type -random before the builders become available, then it will wait until they would become available and then random you a builder

Repick command
• Added: New functionality has been added to the repick command so that if you repick while not in a random mode (ar, rm) then you get to choose a new builder instead of being given a random new one
• Fixed: The game will now notify you when you try to repick more than once
• Fixed: Repick will now work in non-random modes (except -rm)
• Fixed: Repicking in Training mode will no longer automatically reset your sell timer
